So, it's been in the works for a while but the time has finally come.
I've decided to move my primary journal off of GameDev.net, my new journal will be here: http://www.edigames.com/journal
Now I realize some of you may have some questions about why, so I am going to go over my main reasons. If there are some I don't address feel free to comment on them.
1. Posting to a limited audience
This is the big one, I really only have the time and drive to post on one journal, and while GameDev.net is great, I would have to say most of the people (some who enjoyed reading about Morning's Wrath development) don't care about graphic adventure game development. Graphic adventure is the future of EDIGames for as far as I can see down the line (no more RPGs), so it is important that if im saying things it gets heard by people who want to hear it, and as many people as possible.
2. GameDev.net has become horribly slow
I am sure I am not alone in this one, within the passed 6 months, accessing GDNet has been like playing russian roulette with a server error 500. For my plans going forward (spreading my journal to far more external sources) I can't have it turning away potential readers.
3. No journal owner moderation abilities
I brought this issue up a while back, mainly because now and then I need the feature. There are times when I would love to remove somone comment or ban a person from commenting, but these features aren't in my hands.
EDIGames is growing, and if all goes well it will grow more as time moves on. Part of this growth is to centralize all content so that it can be maintained easier, having full control of the development journal will aid in this.
While I will keep this journal, and will continue to keep my GDNet+ account to continue support for GDNet, it is likely that my posting here will be very limited in the future.
I will talk with the GDNet staff to see if they would like to show alternative linkage (offsite journal) for my journal like a few others do, so you can still access it easily from the journal page.
