Construct community needs to expand

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

Construct is a very small community. We need to expand and tell about construct to friends and other online communities.

I've already told of construct on several communities, and some members, as Drew Carey or Casho, came from there.

Everyone needs to make their part : tell your favourite communities about construct!

217 = really small, and most of them are inactive

big amount of people = more moderators ;)

Not really, explain your points.

Scirra has been really really gentle with the community for now. I remember seeing a message "you all suck" or something like that, and the user just got a warning.

If more people come, obiously, people like that should be banned for at least a week.

I've spread the word to a few large communities and the overwhelming response was "This looks really cool but I'll wait for version 1.0." The majority of folks who want to use this aren't interested in beta testing or dealing with bugs.

I've pretty much resigned myself to waiting for v1.0 until I go around promoting Construct again.

Believe me, the major places that would draw a lot of users, like Daily Click and such, are well aware that Construct exists.

I'm happy with a modest community at the moment - we're still in the testing phase, and there are still often problems which prevent people completing their games, which are pretty serious. So likewise, I was going to wait for 1.0 before I tried spreading the word. Feel free to spread the word yourself beforehand, though.

Also I think we'd notice if the community got any smaller, so it's not that bad.
