#4978719 Getting a following/support?

Posted by on 10 September 2012 - 04:17 PM

Oddly enough, I came here about 10 minutes ago to write more along with the link. I saw that someone had upvoted it, though, and decided not to add anything (thinking it might be you, Cirqo).

What I would have added was: "If nobody posts any tips for you, you could probably find some useful information about how to market a game by using this link." I wondered if you had tried Googling how to market games before you posted your question (you didn't say you had). I still think there's likely to be information out there. If you don't want to Google it, try reading articles on Gamasutra, read postmortems, read blogs of indie gamers who've released products.

Thank you for this reply, I will check out the articles on Gamasutra, now I will up vote you.

That is a terrible response, and from a moderator? Isn't this a forum to learn? Ask questions? You could post that same reply to probably 80% of the threads on this website.

Instead of try to be smart and act as if I'm stupid or something, you could attempt to give a real answer, or just don't post at all? Because you clearly don't know how to market a game. If you do, why don't you go ahead and tell me, because that is what my question was.

Pretty pathetic to see a reply like that from a mod. I mean, the guy above your post pointed out the complete obvious but at least he attempted to help. Down vote for you and an up vote for him.

Edit: And if you weren't aware. Google is not a human. People post on forums to get replies from other humans, to have a small discussion, get idea's, etc. Google won't have a discussion with me about how to gain awareness, so posting a reply like that is literally going against the goal of forums.
