Purging 1/3 of the sites data and randomly removing public access. 10 years of G&D history (and the other subforums) and everything relevant. I think the site's registration for the blog is down too right now?

You guys hardly gave any warnings for these actions as well.

Oh and your main site (blog lol) is still broken.

Gaming 6 was a major flop, there was never any need to get rid of the old RM site even though it looked as bad as Don Miguels blog.

Good luck with Salt World!

LOL

I hate to say it, but you should go elsewhere if you're looking to advertise your game or talk about RPG Maker or something. Two good examples are http://www.rpgrevolution.com/ and http://rpgmaker.net/

Yeah, I think this is terrible too. I don't know why so much data wasn't moved over, and I certainly would like to have all of it back. At this point it's unknown who even has the data. But this isn't exactly something for which the current admins are to blame.

The registration being broken is all on us though.

The best part is the movement of completely alienating the entire RM scene by talking down on it (Mods across the board) and promoting "Indie Games".

Congrats, the RM community left and what's left? Where are all the Indie Game Makers?

You want a cool post modern Indie Game Making community? The staff actually have to be involved in the process. And no, Barkley hitting the magazines isn't Indie the game was full of rips and GZ worked his ass off programming a joke game.

There were some stellar artists and talented people here but anyone who ever wanted to be someone moved on for obvious reasons. 90% of the staff here aren't even remotely Indie per se. Congrats on killing a major community with a pseudo attempt at taking the site to a brighter future.

I'm just very annoyed that the former staff members endlessly down talked people in G&D and did nothing to save it. On top of that half the history of the site is non-existant which is probably the worst thing you can do to people who spent much of their adolescent years here. And as Ciel mentioned, payed money for premium.

Well thanks for the warm words. We're clearly doing it out of spite and because we hate the community, so I'm glad you managed to contribute with a constructive topic!!

We're still working on fixing GW - actively, and nothing has been purged. Everything's archived/saved/hidden, so don't worry.

The main site was down for ages. As far as impression goes, we have no evidence that anything is even being worked on. I've heard for ages that the GW data was never purged but I'm skeptical it even exists at this point.

Would I really have to PM you for each individual thread I would like access too? Because I hear that's what some people do. Also public access.

do you actually MISS GW. gd. or why did you three even bother to show up and make a rant from the beginning with?! aren't you in rm2k.net or something similiar now anyways?

I see nothing but garbage $20 VX RTP games being sold. This was non-existant back in the day. There were real games and not just endless boxed vx rtp tiles being sold for credits and clueless game makers. I'm not saying RM is the best thing ever, but it was way better back then. Also, the community here was huge and diverse, the site never needed to be defined.

I come by here from time to time to see a broken front page (It's a damn blog, there's no excuse, I could make the entire site for you if you want) and a dead community. It's not even 10% as thriving as it used to be. The irc channels are basically empty from the few times I checked.

P.S: Vellfire please ignore what I have to say completely and pick a part one line. My point is lead by example.

Also most of the old irc channels probably are empty but #gamingw isn't fuck I'm there most of the time I don't remember you ever popping in to say hello. On that note, what are you doing to help GW? Showing up to complain? We've all already tried that one. Believe it or not GW is at least doing better right now on the getting things done front than it was say a month or two ago so you picked a fine time to start whining about how GW isn't like the good old days even when people like the Barkley crew and thecatamites have been making things of way better quality than the 'GW Golden Age'.

GZ worked his ass off programming a game that tons of people loved (and not ironically) and made it into several print magazines as well as countless blogs and that one gamespot podcast. How dumb. That's not indie. Indie is when you make an rpgmaker game with secret of mana rips and a story about a young boy with no memory of his past as he fights monsters and collects shards.

I hope that when I finish my game nobody ever plays or enjoys it or it might not be indie enough.

You guys are being really immature about this.

Yes, there is no more actual RM community here.
No, you won't get what you paid premium for.
No, Indie Games don't belong here.

I think theres a 99.9% chance that theres no site being worked on. Let's all just go to GGZ.
