Are the Construct 2 Forums Dead?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

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.

@darc

Part of the reason I decided to buy Construct was because of the highly active forum with hugely supportive members (also it gets truly marvellous updates every week).

The Construct 2 community is an extremely supportive one! THe only "drawback" is getting your post noticed in the How Do I? section when others are asking questions at the same time as yours. However, you will eventually receive an answer! Be patient and supportive!

I love our IRC (though it has its dull moments :-P ). I've met and talked with some really awesome people, have gotten some good help, and the talk is generally pretty mature. I, honestly, haven't found a better indie game development irc yet--the rest typically devolve into phallic jokes and poor grammar. If you're on the fence, get off it and come hang out in the esper.net #construct irc with the rest of us!

As far as the community goes, it isn't the biggest around, but its definitely active, and a lot of the individual posts are of a higher quality than you can sometimes achieve elsewhere.

Very active community. Some days I make a topic and it's gone in less than 2 hours. Having been shoved down to the 2nd and sometimes third page. however it has been a holiday lately and I did see a dip.

Also in regards to the IRC. I personally against IRC for forums. They are counter productive. I used to hang out a forum with an IRC. Too often if the community is health. Often leads to some of the best "topics" being in IRC and never being seen by the rest of of the forum due to not being on the IRC or at the computer at the time.

The flip side is that it's the live active discussion that leads to some of the best discussions.

Well, I don't post a lot, but I am checking the forum multiple times a day. I don't think you have to worry about the activity here, it seems just fine to me. Thijsku2013-04-06 11:58:28
