I'm going to stick up for vdrake on this one point: you could search many threads and find an OP attacked just for posting an idea. It's ridiculous and it's something that shouldn't be happening, but it happens all too often. There is big difference between being honest and being an ass, and there are a number of people here who are oblivious to the difference.
If you don't like a person's idea or project, why be an ass to them about it? What does it accomplish? Nothing. I've seen a number of threads where people make a suggestion for Construct, only to be bombarded with the typical following posts:
*There is a way to do this already, but you don't know anything about programming that's why you don't get it: there is always so much assuming about a person's background, and it's just not needed. If you can help, help. If you can't, shut up. But all this jumping on people's knowledge is just weak, especially when you really have no idea.
*This idea is stupid (and any variation of that): Then the idea is not for you, but that doesn't make it "stupid".
*You're an idiot for requesting this since it's been requested 1,000 times already: amazing that it escapes these "genius" posters that this is the very concept of having an idea forum. If people keep requesting it, that means a lot of people want it, and that shows the devs that it's something they should be considering. It's not for people to be dickheads because they feel people should stop asking for it... that's an idiotic response to a request.
The way people react at times to new ideas and projects, I'm surprised anybody posts anything at all. It just doesn't seem worth it when you run the risk of getting the types iof responses I've pointed out.
Anyway, good luck to the OP. Good luck to vdrake, and good luck to everyone who has been put off by the way some posters attack here. You did nothing wrong, you just ran into some people who are socially awkward and don't know how to act properly. Forget them like the poorly adjusted geeks they are and move forward with your plans.
