What happens to those who donated to C0.x?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I did it on my time, for my own reasons, because I wanted to give back something to the community that made Construct what it was. Not because I was expecting something in return.

I've seen a lot of this sort of attitude on the forum lately and frankly I'm a little concerned. Try losing that misplaced sense of entitlement and rekindle your community spirit. If you're not here because you enjoy being here and you support Construct then what's the point?

And no, this isn't aimed solely at you Draven, I've seen it happening a lot around here lately.[/quote:xqv5l42o]
totally agree. it's annoyingly nonstop in the c2 forums.

They're trying to make an awesome game creator. They decided they wanted to make a career out of it as well. End of story. You're not abandoned stepchildren. You're not slighted exgirlfriends. You're not victims of another great indie group selling out to the almighty dollar.

You're the lucky users of a great piece of software that was given to you for free. And the beta testers of an improved version of that software, that deserves to go commercial. I know this isn't the tone Ashley and Tom have been trying to project, so I'm definitely speaking for myself here. but if it offends anyone, I assure you the tone taken by most of the those who feel like they have some debt to hold over scirra's head is just as offensive to me.

Right, well, I can see it from both sides and whatever seems fair or breeds goodwill is best.

None of this is an issue to me, personally, and I'm not really concerned about it, but I thought it was good to bring it up now before someone else does later. However, since the negativity on the forums already seems to be considered a problem, maybe I shouldn't mention anything until the community is more stable?

No, don't stop posting for that reason. It's a perfectly good and legitimate question that we had considered when we decided to close source C2.
