ConstructIVE - A new Discord Channel!

  • Hi guys

    Sorry, i posted a thread about this yesterday but decided, to delete it again because i felt it was kind of poorly worded and that i wanted to think a little bit more about how i best communicate the idea and the channel in (hopefully) fewer words.

    So without much ado, i opened a new Discord Channel called ConstructIVE. We are a group of Construct users who wish to build up a small, healthy, positive and, well, constructive Community and Platform for people who love working with Construct and want to see it grow as well as help each other as well as Scirra themselves.

    So here is what we want to achieve with the channel:

    + Getting a positive vibe, where you can feel welcome and show things you're working on as well as get help and support if you have any questions.

    + Discussing the current developments of Construct in a useful way without overarching sarcasm or cynicism. I actually opened a "Think Tank" room, where you can share ideas for possible developments all the way up to mockups for "what if" scenarios.

    + Hopefully, one day down the line and if this thing goes anywhere, having a Developers Lounge, where we can exchange ideas or just talk to Scirra Devs but in a way that shows the mutual respect between us and them.

    + No engine is perfect, and we feel often times some concerns that might even seem legitimate are going nowhere for any number of reasons. Therefore i opened a separate channel where we can collect tests about performance stuff etc. and if there are real issues at hand, we can work out a solution together. Please note, that according to channel rules, these kind of issues require a project file so we can discuss them in a serious matter.

    + Most of all: HAVE FUN! There are many talented developers scattered around these forums, facebook groups, Twitter, Discord and so on. We want to bring them together for a constructIVE experience!

    Unfortunately, there are also some things we really don't want to see on the Discord which include:

    • Restating of apparent shortcomings of the engine over and over without any attempt to actually help Scirra our the other users of fixing them.
    • We'd like to see some basic human courtesy to each other and, in case they would be interested in ever joining, the developers of Construct. This is not too much to ask and often times makes for a more productive environment in general.
    • Game Development in its very nature can be very rewarding but we all went through frustrating times. Still, defaulting to a snarky or overtly cynical attitude against C2/C3 never helped anyone either. We see a bright future for the engine and if you can't then this is probably not the Channel for you.
    • Insults or personal offenses are not being accepted in any way shape or form.
    • Posts like "C3 suckz, C2 ftw!" or "I hate browser based software" oooor "Subscription is bad" etc. These matters have been discussed in great length with Scirra already and they stated their reasoning multiple times. As of now, they'll just have to be accepted as fact.

    Sounds like a pandering, safe space full of SJW refugees to you? Well, luckily there are many other offerings of communities around the Internet that might better suit your taste then <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile"> And i don't even mean this sarcastically <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy">

  • Isn't there already a construct discord group?

  • Isn't there already a construct discord group?

    What isn't already a discord group?

  • Yes, but this one is attempting to take the general atmosphere of it in a different direction. If you look in both you may see the difference.

  • Constructive is a growing vitamin! <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy">
