    • Important Forum Announcement. Most sections are now User Only

      In order to avoid getting things out of control and get people registering to the forum, we have decided to make most of the sections ONLY available for registered users. It's a 3 minute process and we also make sure that information remains not public.

      I hope you guys will agree with us.

    • not disagreeing nor pointing flaw just putting another point of view across.

      When googling for answers and i come across a forum i need to sign up to to see what was written. To me one of two things need to happen for me to sign up. either i would need a 90% assurance that my question will be answered if i sign up or I'm extremely desperate for an answer and ill try anything to get it.

      Noted!
      You know guys we do what we can to get your questions answered. Problem specifically comes from Google and similar sites. We don't want this information open 100%.
      It must be only for "users" of this private club. You get me, right? Legal stuff.

      I'm ok with this as long as the Arcade Projects section remains public :) I post a lot of stuff there that I want to be available publicly and if that section goes private it would mean I'd have to post it some place else.

    • I like the idea of exclusivity.

      I'm all for sharing my contributions, but most of what I've been able to accomplish has been due to help from members here. I see a relatively high number of downloads for the ID3 and WMMT card reader emulators I put out with very little feedback. Sure, many are probably downloading it for future use in case something happens to this site, but it's nice to at least be thanked! :)

      I guess the Project Ideas thread is exclusive? That's where most of my contributions reside since I only ever start out with ideas and slowly figure out how to realize them. :D
    • Maybe it's worth discussing what the intention of Project Ideas and Project Announcements are.

      It seems to me like Project Ideas is a place for members to discuss the viability of ideas. Maybe it's a sounding board for ideas to see how viable they are and maybe it's also a platform to flesh out ideas, which is kind of how I've been using it. In either case, it seems like if you post there you're hoping for feedback from members. Any anonymous non-member isn't contributing to the conversation. Should they still be allowed to view it? If you've got something you legitimately want to share outside of the forum, maybe post in the Project Announcements thread?
    • I'm more of the mindset of sharing everything publicly unless there is an explicit reason not to.

      As for the "project showcase" vs "project ideas" forums. I always have a difficult time picking which one is more appropriate. because most of my projects start out with just spit-balling ideas and then evolves into a more full fledged project thread. So it's almost like threads should start in the ideas forum and then get moved to the showcase forum once the reach a certain point.

      Maybe it would be better if we changed the forums to simply "arcade projects" and "private arcade projects". that would allow members to decide if they want their project thread publicly viewable or not and it would remove the ambiguity between when something has reach past the point of just being an idea.
