Everyone this week got a pretty sizeable ratings boost. Why? Because you guys are all so awesome.

GameDev.net Staff Journal > GameDev.net is going to get a whole lot better

Posted Michael Tanczos on 07 September 2011 - 12:46 PM

When you've been around as long as GameDev.net (12+ years) you see a lot of stuff happen around the industry. During that time we moved in different directions as well. This lead us to implement features and resource collections that at this point we no longer consider that important, but have kept around largely because of tradition. This is pure...

GameDev.net Staff Journal > So what's cooking around here?

Posted Michael Tanczos on 22 May 2011 - 09:41 AM

We dedicated the month of May to "make things better". To that end we are working on things that have been long-standing issues that have been on our TODO list forever. The reason for a lack of recent staff updates has been that bug fixes make for kind of boring news since they really address how features should have been working all along. ...

The "new" bbcode tag that is available for use is the [ source ] tag.

The source tag requires an attribute...

GameDev.net Staff Journal > News moderated by you - major upgrades to GameDev.net news!

Posted Michael Tanczos on 13 April 2011 - 12:26 PM

One of the things we've always wanted to do at GameDev.net is to have a steady staff of news editors that provide you with the best source of original game development news around. The problem is this would take a lot more resources than we have available. Fortunately there is plenty of good news coverage out there for the games industry and game...
