Are the Construct 2 Forums Dead?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Apr 04, 2013 10:24 pm

I come on here pretty much daily, but I don't post daily. I generally post when I feel I can help, to continue discussions that peak my interest, or to ask stuff myself now and then. I generally get responses fairly quick :)

Though, in terms of social community, I feel it'd be cool if there was some sort of IRC chat, or bringing back that old chat that used to be on these forums.

@Whiteclaws hah yeah, I remember it, it seemed promising but was empty almost all the time, with an occasional person going on there saying "Helllooo?" to themselves. My guess is that it was shutdown due to emptiness. But since the community has grown, I feel it would be good to bring it back :D

Being one of the newer members I will surly support that the forums are quite alive! In the 30 days I have been following C2 the forums have grow quite rapidly. I check them daily because I am a freak and there is always new posts.

Also when I post I get a good set of reply's from "old" experienced members typically that same day and not just other newbies trying to help. I think C2 has a long road of life ahead of it.

On the converse I have looked at other tools and their forums are much less trafficked, I posted on one of the "other" tools like C2 forum and took three days to get any kind of response and the response was horrible.

We have never officially run an IRC channel, so we couldn't have shut down an IRC channel either. I think some users run their own Construct IRC channel, someone will have to jump in and remind me what the server and channel is.

@Ashley , I was referring to that awesome little chat popup thing that uses this forums' username/image and allow the forum users to chat :P

It would certainly be helpful if new users read the manual or followed some of the tutorials before posting. I know it can be puzzling sometimes but the manual is excellent.

Still one of the best forums i have used for a long time.

Well, there used to be the link to use mibbit - I've wondered why the link got taken down, as the irc channel still exists, it's at irc.esper.net, #construct.
