Then again I guess that many people just really don't have a clue about these things but still want to get that extra post count +1.
Too be quite honest, most of my disdain comes from the lack of support and antagonistic attitude towards indie game/game & demo:
And the reason G&D has been "abandoned" is because it mostly sucks, and the forum regulars have moved on from RPG Maker.
While I'll admit that there isare lot of demos posted on there that need a lot of work, the inflammatory attitude that generates is unnecessary and causes a lot of people, myself included, to feel insecure and unsure about all the work put into our games because the veterans have some disdain towards games made with *gasp* RPG Maker (on a website devoted to amateur gaming, in which rpg maker makes up a large majority of).
I have been working on a game for over 3 years now, and I've always wanted to post the finished result on here, but when I see this type of conduct, it really discourages me from doing so out of fear that it will generate nothing but flames and deconstructive criticism. I can take harsh criticism, as long as its constructive, but that is the one thing I never see on G&D.
I feel like I've been a loyal member of this community, so it hurts me to see all the elitism and circle jerking that this forum has become. So that's why I can no longer be a member of this forum. Maybe, if GW 6 ever gets done, I can return here as a regular on the main site, but rest assured, you will never see me on the forums again.
