In Topic: Isnt this forum boring?

Today, 10:54 AM

Well, the forum was never specifically meant to be not-boring. It was created as a hub for game development related discussions. If you find it boring and think it shouldn't be then it's your responsibility to do something about it. biggrin.png


In Topic: Isnt this forum boring?

Today, 08:41 AM

When I joined the forums I was young and crazy and I guess most of the "founding fathers" were as well.

GDNet was one of the prime gamedev related forums. These days you have a multitude of different resources available.

Now most of the original members are probably out of college, in stable jobs and have a family of their own.

 

Back then it did feel more like a tight-knit community of regular members who, besides being extremely knowledgable in their fields,

had time to get into long and seemingly neverending discussions, including silly stuff and even creating GDNet memes. floorcaek anyone?

 

I think it's just normal that once this large, somewhat homogenous group separates and new members only join irregularly, the original spirit gets lost.

If we want to have a revival of some sorts we must be more proactive with community driven efforts. The GDNet weekend challenges are a good example.

 

And a personal advice to fir:

You sound somewhat depressed (just my humble opinion). Maybe you should try to find happyness outside of the net. The place has become somewhat sterile and technical.

In Topic: A Collaborative Free and Open-Source OS?

There you go

 

I tried the first few tutorials but got bored very quickly. It will take a really long time before you can do any meaningful with your OS.

Your best bet would be to use something like Linux From Scratch and build upon that.

In Topic: Is Win8 that bad?

07 April 2014 - 02:15 PM

I'm still running Win7 because I am perfectly happy with it and don't see a reason to update at the moment. And even though Microsoft have done their best to alleviate all the bad points, the whole stuff still leaves a sour aftertaste.

 

The market leader fucking up their most important product and alienating a large part of their user base, the short sighted "everything metro" approach, the total non understanding of critics at first...

 

It just feels like something at this company is seriously messed up. I will stick out until Windows 9 comes around.
