Is it just me, or would the Game Dev section benefit from a Drawing Board Sub-forum? So people can post WIP layouts for games, so they can get comment and criticism on what to do and what not to do?
I for one have a few rough outlines for stories that I'd consider posting.

Anyway, what're your opinions on this?

      Not only!

      I think Avatar means things done to use on game!

      Like Charsets, Tilesets, Sprites and stuff!

      I believe that is a great, great idea!

      Actually I was thinking more along plots, concepts, etc
      Though I suppose everything related to your project would do.

        What she means is a place to post ideas about games you might create so you can get feedback from others. This way you dont start a gmae no ones gonna play.

        Am I right avatar?

          That sounds like a brilliant idea! other people could then use the information in the thread to help make thier own games!

            Yes you're very much right, as that was what I had in mind.

            And, I'm a guy

              I think a resource subforum would be good, because the resource thread always get jumbled up, with the subforum people can make new threads to show new pieces of work and if you're looking for something you can just search.

                i agree with that as well. there should be a sub forum for the Resource Thread. Someone should PM Blizzy with that idea!

                  Yeah we should have a sub forum to discuss stuff like plots, story, and maybe ideas like new pokemon and stuff!

                    you can pm me, but it's useless,
                    i can't create a sub forum for this.
                    ask the higher staff

                        A sub-forum would be great. There're lot's of people here with great ideas, and they sometimes go to waste.
