Hey guys, why don't we start writing our own book ? If several people contribute articles, we could get a nice amount of pages together. The book could cover many topics, just like "Game Programming Gems" or whatever. Perhaps it could get published if it's good enough - and I'm sure it would be. Imagine the ideas and the know-how that's lying fallow here ?! Whaddaya all think ? Bye, Leoric [edited by - Leoric on May 8, 2004 2:53:51 PM]

Write the book for who? For ourselves? If GameDev receives the money for articles.. then who will stay?

GDNet is like a book itself, only free.

If all those articles were put on the site, it would help GDNet more than in a book.

Yeah, now I got it. It''s just that many GameDev newbies really have to search heavily for the information they need. I experienced it myself. There''s a lot of stuff here at GDNet but finding exactly what you need is still hard.

It''s ok. The enthusiasm about it is VERY limited anyway.

I think they already have a flow of money with ads and some through book store links. An idea of alternative to online book like "wikki" was being considered.

I think the Articles & Resources section should be promoted, and maybe reorganized. So it''s newb friendly

It is newbie friendly. It''s not hard to just use the "search" feature, is it? Or, if you''re feeling really intelligent, you could always use the "catagories". If you''re looking for an article on vectors or something, it''s amazing how easy they are to find if you click on the "maths and physics" catagory. Then I suppose you have to read it. I think thats where most newbies trip up.

You have to remember that you''re unique, just like everybody else.
