The Forums Are On Fire!
OK, maybe not “fire”, but we are getting as steady stream of posts now, which is really cool. Thanks to all the new users who have come around and started participating. It’s really starting to get fun.
In case you have not looked, here isa run-down of all the forums we currently have on 8bitrocket.com:
- Flash: All things Flash game programming. currently we are discussing Android, the vitality of the Flash game genre, and ideas around Shareware and Flash.
- HTML 5: I just started this one with a post about how you need to use three different video formats when using the HTML5 Video tag.
- Silverlight: This has just started as well, with a discussion about the Windows 7 phone.
- The Essential Guide Flash Games Book. We just posed a link to review of our book from the Photon Storm web site.
We also have a few “experimental” forums designed to make you think about language and craft your posts accordingly.
- Haiku Only: All posts must be in the form of 5-7-haiku. All topics allowed.
- One Word Only: All posts and responses need to be one word only. The first two “questions” are up. Apple and Adobe. Tell us (briefly) what you think about those words. Some time the first word that comes to your mind is the best one.
- CAPS ONLY. THIS FORUM IS FOR CAPS YELLING ONLY ABOUT THINGS THAT MAKE YOU UPSET. lower case USED FOR emphasis.
Anyway, please go over and look, so far it’s been fun and exactly what we hoped for.
