Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have been using Hoop.la for the past couple months as a collaboration site for my game development group. Recently, they've changed their basic (free) package to not allow the site to be private. Without getting into too many details, I can still have all important content as private through permissions, but it has severely messed up my main page's widgets.
I am currently using Hoop.la's service to do the following:
- Display Tasks (by using blog posts as tasks)
- Have forums for discussions related to major jobs of the game development (writing, art, code, etc)
- Have sub-forums for discussions related to minor jobs of each major job (writing-game, writing-rules, etc)
- Customizable main page showing tasks (blog posts) and active threads, recent posts, recent threads, etc.
Do you guys know any other free sites that allow creation of a private community with all those features?
Even better, do you have any other ideas on ways to privately collaborate a team with tasks and customizable forums for discussions?
