@Zephyrum Indeed, anyway, been kinda busy with some freelancing and game jams recently, oh and partying quite a bit, so the chatroom was a tiny bit more quiet, also the activity around here, but things are still going way better compared to using IRC room; might consider a diaspora forum down the road as well, but it needs a dedicated server probably xD
will probably get a tablet soon and some awesome game dev books, make more game prototypes in game jams

for someone still studying it, 600$ a week is a monster of a payment here
roughly 2700$ a month, that's more than most graduated people get here :O
And @DreadKnight just use some free forum system like invision or phpboard while the game is still growing, then try to get your own service

@Zephyrum almost done that kind of stuff before; invision looks great, even had nice communities using it before, but would probably pick the other one since it's foss; anyway, I kinda get lost in the details, trying to properly integrate the forum into the website and stuff like that, like visually theming it, it's what I hated about discourse initially, as they all look the same, but now I kinda consider that a good point, just providing a button to the forum to simply have it open in a new tab and such
yeah, even 500$ / month is still really great around here actually xD
I usually live on way less than that per month tbh

so do i as of right now....things been hard for a good while now..ive spent 3 years dedicated to writing and learning the craft...then at some point i didnt feel like it was getting me where i wanted to be so i switched my focu to learning to code...the work here sems straight forward and this offer is kind of out of the blue...so im alittle skeptical and need to se how it will work out....but looking at it on paper right now looks pretty inviting....well...the money does...the work wil be mind numbing and tedious....but thats nothing new
