Help make it? I put some stuff there, and we still need to add in references and stuff to the forum and other things to make sure it doesn't get deleted.

Thanks, but I wouldn't be surprised if they delete it based on notability guidelines - might have to wait till Construct is better known!

wouldnt scirra be considered a company? which would qualify. you are producing a product (although free and open sourced) but a product none the less. it is licensed under GPL so include that as well.

its just a matter of including the right things.

but maybe not.

Scirra is about as much as a company as you'd have if you set up a website for a lemonade stand. In other words, not really at all, just a name. There are no accounts and nothing is registered for Scirra, it's pretty much just a domain name :P

Might want to register the name as a business otherwise some smartass out there might try to "steal" it then claim you copied them... then try to sue you... HAED AESPLODE! :shock:

No seriously... how much is it to register your business name? I know here in Australia it's only like $200 per year, or free if your business name is YOUR name.

It looks like it costs about 200 for a UK trademark, and it takes a few months. That's 200 I don't have, being a student :P

We might have to see what we can do to help with that then...

Check out the illegal activities section that's been added to the wikipedia article. What a fiasco! :D
