If we were to add a technical support section, we'd start attracting people who weren't interested in game development, but rather, just game playing. Frankly, that's not the demographic we want to attract. It's similar to why we don't have a forum devoted to barbecuing tips. It's not that we dislike those who barbecue. This just isn't the place for them.


Oh... well ok then...

Maybe I will start my own forum... got any website that makes forums??


Wouldn't it be wiser just to visit the existing www.GameFAQs.com forums?

It would -- but I want to create my own forum about Gaming Technical Support.

Well, you came here looking for tech support yourself, so how can you help other people if you can't help yourself?

This is a GAME DEVELOPMENT forum, not a general "games forum". We MAKE the games. If you don't want to make games, then what the bloody hell are you doing here?

I found this site on Google linking to a Golden Sun topic and thought this was a Tech Support Site.


Well, no. But if you wanted to make a game like Golden Sun, then we might be able to help. [smile]

Technical support sucks when you're getting paid for it. It sucks even more when you get roped into doing it for friends or family as a favour. It sucks hardest when doing it for complete strangers who are too lazy to figure it out on their own or too cheap to pay someone else to do it.


Seconded.
