Promoting a single program seems pretty silly at this point.  However, so is bashing a single program.  Who cares what people use to make games?  I think enough developers here now use a variety of apps (GM, XNA, whatever) that we shouldn't start a shitstorm every time a game made in one of the RMs is posted.

(If I had the patience to learn a new app I would move on from RM, but I hardly have the time)

i've not seen any of these shitstorms, unless by shitstorm you mean a bunch of other rm users giving endless empty praise, this is all i have ever seen from rm topics, most of the people who think rm is awful don't post in those (but they do post in topics like these because they address a more general issue that probably should be addressed)

These topics are the reason I don't bother with RM anymore. Sure my games were all shit, but I did have fun making them, and will be the first to admit I have no programming tact whatsoever; in that light RM was great for me. But now because people whine about RM being left behind or people bitch about how terrible RM is, there's just no point. If you still have interest in RM go to RMN. They're supportive of your program and will look at the screenshots. GW is changed, and change is hard to swallow. But, you will just have to accept it.

I have to agree with Demon... this topic has become useless now...
It used to be a simple question... will GW have a RM database, then it got into an argument over
"RM sux, no one uses it"
"Hey, some of us do!"
"Then you noob"
"No I aren't"
Lets just face the music here... RM is around, some (if not, many) people still use it from time to time (whether they actually make or finish *cough me*cough any games is the point.) Heck, look at the "rare RPG maker\game demos" topic forum... people are interested in RM games still, though GW might not get an RM specific database, it can still have a reference to RM games in like, the other game makers section... right?
Can we just put this topic to rest and get an answer to the damned question... will there be an RPG maker database, or will there be any rpgmaker games?
I'll sit down, shut up, and get on the shortbus now...

Because the answer is easy: No there will not be an RPG Maker database on GW. And RPG Maker games can be featured on the mainsite if they're worth a shit.

Sure, bring a RM game that is worth something and I'll review it like I'd review any other games. Till then, I'll review games made with actual programming.

in all honesty I would like a big FTP where people can just dump games onto, but mostly just because I've lost so many of my own games when PC crashed/the website I was hosting them on went down, I know the names and everything so I wouldn't care about a writeup or anything. To a lesser extent with other people's games, to see if they were really any good or not. But it's not really very important

alec already repeated the answer but seriously dude the question WAS answered on the first page, followed by another two pages of discussion about the answer which was given (on the first page (it's right there dude!))

sorry that you can't read

tl;dr there's no reason good games can't be submitted to the mainsite but gw isn't going to let everyone start uploading their games because most of them aren't worth it

set me straight.  So Gaming World won't make an rpgmaker database because a database can be found at RMN?  And Gaming World posts games on the mainsite that are taken from main site posts at other indie gaming sites.  So then what is the point of Gaming World? 

Seems like people should either go to RMN or go to tigsource or other indie gaming sites that post non-rpg-maker games.

I understand you operate on a subhuman level of intelligence you skeletal ape, but it should still be pretty obvious that the point of the mainsite blog is to keep the GW community updated with/connected to the larger game making community by posting all the big events and cool new indie games. It would be nice if there were more updates about GW, but the members aren't really generating enough content at the moment for that to become a reality.

i dont have time to argue with you.   Clearly you're the smartest man in the world.  It would take me years to think on your level.

It's amazing how every time you open your mouth you prove you're an idiot.

Hey Nightblade would you like to actually contribute to the topic for a second or are you just coming in here to do absolutely nothing useful at all?  Even the other people who have been insulting were at least ALSO contributing.

We're an already established community.  If GW was just a site about rpgmaker it probably would have completely faded away, but because of the forums and the fact that GWers as a whole just like hanging out and chatting with each other, GW is still here.  The only thing keeping GW together is the actual community, and mainsites have nothing to do with that.  If anything, the mainsite is the side project and the forums are the real deal.  GW's not around to be some big site anymore, it's around because we dudes like each other mostly.

the intelligence part was a joke. actually I'm not sure why I'm telling you this because I don't really want you to respond. I guess I'm wondering why you think there is something to argue when I just made a statement about how things seem to be going

haha I was waiting for someone to say this. GW is fairly redundant and the majority of people come back just to hang out. These types of controversial topics are what keep this site interesting haha. I love seeing the arguements lol. But yeah, if you're serious about game design, I would probably go elsewhere.
