The Sparse Update

It's been a long while since any updates, so let me clarify: RRR is not dead, but it has been so long since I removed the dead link that they don't have us anymore either.

What is the state of the RPG Making community? Is it up? Is it down? The main user base gets older and older, with some of us in our late twenties, and yet RPG Maker continues to attract the kind of youth that we were in its heyday. So where were you, nine years ago, with RPG Maker 2000? Even that was before my time.

This community is in some kind of state, that's to be sure. We're hanging on by a scarce few dedicated members, in a state of limbo with Maxy, the site's owner. Despite not being seen for a long time and claiming he would not renew the hosting, he has nonetheless continued to pay the bills.

I would like to formally recognize the members which keep us going. Thank you, egg_dragon, for supporting our new members with their troubles which seem so far away to any RM veteran. Thank you, Chickensoupcheese, for injecting the spice into random discussions and making them fun. And thank you, anybody who is reading this.

I've no clue why this site isn't more popular. You've constantly got a bunch of guests and everytime I look down at "The Lastest Member" it's someone new. It would be a real shame to see this place go down, especially since I've only just started to hang out here again. I'm going to try to be quite active to help keep this site afloat!

Something interesting; it's been so long since I posted any news that there was some difficulty getting it to display, related to the fact that the headline (outdoors tileset) is so old it's in an archive (why would we want so little news archived?) and I uncovered a piece of news from August 2008 that was Maxy explaining about site outages related to payment difficulties with the host. It's not there now, though.

I'm glad I can help in any way. I just wish there was more I could do to help revive this place. Nine years ago I was a sophomore in high school, just discovering RM95+ (and a short while thereafter I found RM2k). Funny thing, I found RPG Maker 95+ while I was sitting at my computer one day off from school and thinking "that'd be awesome if there was some program that could let me make my own video games" and I did a quick search and low and behold! I found Don Miguel's website (where I also later downloaded his translated version of RM2k). But back then I was a member of rpg2knet.com (which is ever so slowly coming back online) and for a brief time I was a staff member of a short-lived rpg making website. But this place is the only one that I feel is my rpg making home Laugh If I knew anything about running and maintaining a website, I'd offer to take over the financial burdens for Maxy (my wife would KILL me lol). Anyway, I'll keep doing my part and hopefully that'll be enough. Smile

I'm new-ish here, but I'm gonna do my damnedest to stick around and contribute SOMEHOW! Time to figure out how to be helpful... :Drool:

Trent saw you naked.

Need resources? Drop me a line! If I don't have it, I can likely find it!
