Club PA 2.0 has arrived! If you'd like to access some extra PA content and help support the forums, check it out at patreon.com/ClubPA
The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
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!

A 'Game Design/creation' forum?

I really think we should have a forum where game creation can be discussed. It would be a lot easier and organised than having 'I need a programmer' threads pop up every few days in the G+T forum, plus we could have stickes that imform people of general rules and tips in tersm of finding team-members, getting organised, programming, sprite creation, etc.

I think this would be a great idea as a lot of forumers are obviously into videogames, programming, art, design, writing, etc and we could have many collaborative, organised projects. Instead of people posting in the AC if they need an artist or G+T for a programmer, those people can simply look at a sticky entitled 'artists/programmers avialble'. Willing artists/programmers can put their names down here and their area of work (programming in Game-maker, sprite animation, etc) and people looking for these types of people can look at these and PM those people instead of making the afformentioned threads all over the forums.

That's just a few ideas but I think this is a valid idea

    Not an official response, but I think that it would be largely empty, or worse, largely useless -- full of 'lawl do work for me' threads.

    I really don't think this is necessary. Aside from anything else, those projects never get off the ground.

    I mirror the mod's responses, mainly because we never got a Tabletop/Wargame/etc. board, which, no offense, is I think more warrented than Game Design.

    Those never get off the ground either. Once G&T can sustain a thread about a P&P game, with people playing for more than six months, we can think about a P&P forum.

    I want a separate forum for the mods to hang out in.

    But it has to be invisible.

    I think EE should come back, since there are sometimes things to randomly talk about but stay on topic. But not as serious as D&D, and not as off topic as SE. Just my idea, but it most likely won't happen.

    Game design is fine in G&T. WE get about one thread on it per month and it usually gets about five sarcastic replies before it drops off the first page and is neevr seen again. The current one is just an exception for some reason.

    Oh hey now, I haven't told you guys my plan for a knitting forum yet!

    I think the AC suggestion could be a good one, although I'd want to hear from the AC mods about it first. I've heard some rumblings about things being a bit dead in there lately, and perhaps expanding the forum's, you know, thingy into other areas of art/design would be a good move.

    We had a huge project set a couple of years ago and managed to work up a mailing list and have a couple of meetings.

    Then it died. Like, over a weekend it just stopped. People lack dedication. There was only one forumer-made project that camet o be, and it was the fruit-fucker FPS.

    Yep, I still have bitter memories of the "lets design an RPG" project. Bitter fucknig memories. Although I'd like to try again, as I'm a glutton ofr punishment.

    Here's an idea: How about a forum about games that are not video or are being created? I mean, sure, tabletop and P&P might not fill a forum on its own, and crazy design ideas might not fill a forum on its own, but together, both working at full capacity, I think they just might do the work of one normal forum.

    Generally it is just three threads though. A boardgame one, a warhammer one and an RPG one. Saying that splitting them down wouldn't really work in G&T (I imagine a thread specially about something such as Iron Heroes or Icetower games would just vanish instantly from the frist page and never see a single post).
    Either way, I'm not trying to start the argument about getting this forum again. I'm just a bit curious as to what the other six threads were.

    They're all gone now, so I don't remember. There were two or three RPG threads, warhammer, warmaster, boardgames.
