I'd bother to post point out that new users are not always met with sarcasm but you are pretty closed minded to any possibility that I might have EVER helped new comers.
I honestly see threads like this, read through the ideas and don't even reply unless I see some potential. Truthfully, I felt his "idea" was pretty half baked
and wasn't going to go anywhere, which is why I didn't even reply until I felt he was using the forum as a recruiting station attempting to pull useful people AWAY from spring. Even then I put in an objection with no personal attack. So kindly leave my name out of your little crusade momfreeek.
I could bother to put together a sort of :
hello [insert name here], welcome to spring forums! To get started on your ["cliche concept"], you will need to start reading [wiki link]. Please, try the projects that exist [gundam, kp or zk where appropriate] to see an example of [thier "origonal" idea].
I could then go on to explain how they will need to be a jack of all trades to see their project through, ask them what their weak points are and try and point them to resources which could help them strengthen it.
After a week they will leave and never come back after they find out that actually making a game instead of lecturing the content devs
is actual work. In fact I have tried many times to help people and honestly, your closed minded smear campaign has really reduced my esteem for you momfreeek. I will repeat what I have said for years about these projects:
if the guy is capable, then he will do it, us holding his hand will not produce anything useful. I have ACTUALLY helped tons of new guys get started and watch them lose interest for various reasons other than the content devs who you are labeling as assholes.
There are assholes here but it is mostly in the players. The part that these fragile developers will have to really deal with, when players get a hold of this guy they will be much worse. So while I do not agree with trollish posts people have been doing lately once a thread goes to shit... looking at a certain few in this thread.. I do not think you villifying the people who have had a history of helping(myself or Z) over a few select incidents is fair or useful.
Like I say often, either start actually helping or give your high horse to someone who does. I cannot take your high horse, I have one and a tall pedistal, maybe if you have no one else to put on your high horse, you should start being actually helpful instead of making tedious lectures about how OTHERS should be more helpful. IF YOU ARE NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION YOU ARE PART OF THE FUCKING PROBLEM!
