Wikipedia article!

    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!

  • Alright, true. I was thinking that might happen, but hey.

  • 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

  • i see.

    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!

    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

    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!

  • Well the section has been removed, you can still find it in history - remember the rules folks, if anything like this happens again, you should deal with it as per the Wikipedia guidelines (ie. post on the discussion page and use {{POV}} or {{citation needed}} as necessary).

  • What? They are so immature that I want to kill them, seriously. Stupid kids, Clickteam and his stupid fanboys are a bunch of retards.

  • The poster of that section is not part of Clickteam... and the situation's difficult enough without those kinds of comments.

  • Wikipedia is okay on the surface, for browsing through general knowledge stuff, but underneath I absolutely hate how it works. "Clear position of bias" my Aunt Fanny... who better to talk about something than the person experiencing it? You shouldn't have to make such silly disclaimers like that.

    And they pull this stuff all the time. "Experts in the field" are generally not welcome to post on Wikipedia because Wikipedia doesn't want first-hand knowledge. Yet they'll let people upload pictures they took of their own privates as "reference photos." It's all ass-backwards there.

    Argh, Wikipedia drama. It's the dumbest form of drama
