Sure try both, but don't do things based on the opinions of others. For instance minecraft which if I'm informed correctly is the most successful modern day indy game is written purely in java, and most people don't seem to mind the "bloat" so keep that in mind when considering what you're going to use for your project

The thing that amazes me is that for the amount I used to post here when I was just learning has made it so that my posts per day is still over 1 even after a few years being in the industry and not posting as much here

#4756131 What Does Everyone Think About The New Site Layout?

Posted by on 09 January 2011 - 01:02 PM

I kind of miss the info bar than the posts having the full width of the page over having info on a side bar pushing posts over and requiring horizontal scrolling for code posts.

Never have been a fan of post counts being beside every post, it's insignificant information that too many people attach value to wrongly, which can lead to spammy users and without being able to rate them down, there's no user recourse, and we have to wait for mods, and who wants to do that :P.

I'm gonna miss rating down though, it's gonna be like digg after they removed bury, but fortunately for gamedev there's no reddit that has a proper downvote to take over the traffic

Depends how often they happen, if it's happening often why not just make an executable that runs as a service do it every X amount of time you need it to, otherwise if it's infrequent scheduled tasks are what you're looking for
