Why you never look back at gamemaker may I ask ?
Just to add up from my previous post. Not trying to defame or anything, just honest insight.
I've been holding this onto myself for quite a while, I think I just want to get this out of my head and share some experience.
The community in GameMaker itself is a bit unhelpful and easy to cut off people, this maybe ok if it is from normal user, but from a moderator is a no-no. They have a tendency to close thread prematurely even though the discussion is legit. If you see this link, which one of the many threads that is yet to blossom, being closed because of a moderator personal opinion, that is seriously bad. Threads should be given chances to grow like here in scirra.
In scirra forum, this never happen, there a lot of stupid thread here but in the end somebody always comes in and giving meaningful response, making the thread seems more meaningful and educational. In gamemaker, it's a no. This thread of yours is a no-no over there, because you "won't give benefit to the community as a whole" lol.
