Lies and slander.
I was just waiting for someone else to jump in so that I would know it was safe.
Also I'm busy with managing my recent ADHD diagnosis, for real.

Also thank you and I hope you are well.

hghhghgklhkg

I dunno it seems like maybe now that most of us have each other's digital ear on Discord and Steam, the forum community has changed from us talking to each other on here to being a typical loose group of internet friends, where we mostly just chat at eachother.

I check here every day too. It's just not in my nature to start a lot of discussions and whatnot... I'm lurking as I always am.

I'm still here, still checking regularly. Maybe not AS regularly since I'm busy with big boy jobs.

I just check in every once and awhile to see if it still exists.

It's comforting to see that people are still active and friendly that I remember from all those years back. I don't even remember when my last post would've been. Brings a smile to me.

In case anyone is looking for a more active forum (that also has some old GamingSteve members), you can check out the Speculative Evolution board.

http://s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_Evolution/index/

Since I and many other forum members came here because of Spore, I thought this board may be of interest to some.

I still open GS first thing when I wake up most days out of sheer habit.

I check it quite regularly. Often once a day at least. And there us also the many discord channels. Maybe a bit to many of them... Oh well... At least they exist to :)

I'm working off of a wifi hotspot which I often have to circumvent the throttling on using a method that allows only one open port.

Can't use steam or discord or bittorrent or some other things when everything is proxy'd through one port.

Yeah, shame the forum is on it's last paces, but a bittersweet place I still remember.

If it wasn't for all the Spore stuff I wouldn't be taking drawing as seriously as I do now. Just came back from CTNX, which is this international expo for animators they hold in Burbank, and I showed some of my work. Mostly everyone I spoke to said I had good draftsmanship and had great potential as a character designer.

I came away with some things I can still work on but overall feeling more confident about my art. Funny how it all kinda first sparked here for me.

I wouldn't say that. Like Brandon this is still the first place I come when I go online. It's just slow going now, which I don't mind.

I agree, we’re not dead just yet. Also remember that things might get slow with people traveling for the holidays. Though that might just be me making excuses for myself.

I would like to add to our not deadness by pointing out the venerable renaissance going on in the art section.

why do we not have an ass section?

It is the highest praise.
Title: Re: Forum very dead, much empty
Post by: Slinky on November 26, 2017, 11:56:13 pm
in all seriousness though i don't mean anything negative about this forum by that. it's just that i'm significantly less interested in videogame culture and the gaming community in general and some of yall still message me sometimes so i still get to be caught up on how you're doing :)

btw i made a new facebook so lmk if i forgot to add anyone

I think we forgot to say, that sounds great, Gec! Are you pursuing art career stuff?
Title: Re: Forum very dead, much empty

Oh yes! Been wanting to pursue it for years. Finally had the guts to take criticism from actual industry artists. Hopefully someday learn animation.

Awesome! Hope it all progresses well!
