Pretty sure there was already a thread about this years ago, but what the heck... a fresh start is always good.
I was looking for a demo for MMF at the time that was made by Tigerworks (Ashleys old "name"), and stumbled on to Construct. At the time I think we were very early beta stages (pre 0.5 or maybe even earlier than that!) and I immediately preferred Construct for many reasons.
Since then I have been honoured with a trusty ban-hammer, and have been around to see the community and the software evolove and grow.
And just when you think I'm not looking... I will see you while I lurk... like ceiling cat, only scarier.
I remember that day... you still insist on making this all because of me but I didn't do jack except give you a nudge of encouragement. You have done all the hard work and made it happen. You don't have anyone to thank but yourself, since you are awesome and all that good stuff. :)
