Stupid as it might sound, being a part of the community single whose managed to create such a powerful reputation for itself. Being notoriously known as the black sheep of the indie community, and all.

Not particularly something I guess many might be proud of - but it's better than being completely and irrevocable ignored or apparently nonexistent.

All of this definitely caught me by surprise. We've always had people posting threads about how TDC has been dying off; such threads go as far back as 2003. But now that it's actually coming true, I honestly don't know what to think. There are pros and cons. But one thing's for sure, Rikus' unwavering dedication, enthusiasm, and passion for indie gaming will be missed, as will many of the folks who come here on a regular basis. I haven't been the most active or well-known member on the site and I've spent many of my klik years as a lurker, but I will still genuinely miss being a part of this community as well.

Looking forward, I'm not entirely sure what Clickteam will do with the site, but I certainly hope that they archive everything so that those of us with active project pages won't lose them. I better start backing up my FableQuest devlog just in case.

CT only has control over the current domain, not the website content itself.

I see no reason why we can not continue as is with a new domain or continue to use the current one (under Jeff's promise). I do think the click world still needs a independant click community - and TDC is pretty much the only community left that shows any signs of life.

Honestly - it would be a lot easier to keep a community full of life, if Clickteam would step up their game and make their tools more appealing to developers. Their price tag and their current product just aren't up to the challenge anymore. Maybe 5 years ago, but not anymore. When you have software packages like Unity which is basically MMF 3D, but with real scripting instead of an event editor, for the game price ranges, it's really hard to compete with something that in reality, really hasn't evolved too much since K&P.

Albeit, the reason is because it was far ahead of it's time at the time, but it's not anymore. Their event editor is amazing and very powerful, but in the eyes of serious developers who don't already suspect it's 'just another cookie cutter app', still see it as little more than a gimmick.

I mean even TGF:NGE is more or less a very sad, stripped down version that makes more bad first impressions than it does good.

I'm not trying to beat Clickteam up or anything, I wouldn't have bought their products if I didn't think they were good and I wouldn't have defended them this long if I didn't think they deserved it. But patience only goes so far, and when I see random people who have gone from knowing nothing, to suddenly creating big beautiful indie games, my patience wore thin. I started studying C# and it's the best decision I've made in a long time. It opens a whole new world that Clickteam has ultimately convinced me, is unable to deliver. Which is a real shame, because I saw a very bright future for them.

Well guys, Rikus said TDC may go down at the end of the month. So is it gonna still be here in 4 days or what? Will I have to enter a different domain name? Why aren't we hearing more about this?

Clickteam has the domain, and Jeff said as long as the server is going, he'd point it here. So I think the tales of our demise might be a bit premature

You know, when kids these days say fat they mean good. So Ricky's really just saying you're a good f**k. I'd rather not think of how he knows that.

Guys, can we seriously stop this crap? Stop the stupid little vendettas and the pointed little comments. We want new members and stuff like this doesn't help. This isn't neogaf, reddit, or 4chan. All you guys are doing is hurting the image of this as a friendly place. You guys like to skirt around the rules and then cry foul when we drop the hammer. Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have to drop it? I know the admins think it would be nice if our members (especially those who have been around for a long time) knew how to conduct themselves.

Ricky, c'mon dude, you're better than this.

Pfred, stop setting people up for things.

Screw it, when the invariable site redesign topic pops up in the admin forum, I'm going to suggest having no main forums.

Knudde makes a good point. This place could go so much further with a little maturity. Not only does the lack thereof make people as individuals look bad, it reflects poorly on the Daily Click community for new users and old alike.

Ricky said something nasty to Adam, I turned it around so jokes on him. I'm sorry if I offended either one of them.

Why are there so few new members? Back when I signed up this was a site where people uploaded games they've made. Now it's a site where people who used to make games talk about... random crap really. If I'd recommend this site to a friend what would I tell them?

As for removing the forums, I actually think that's a good idea, because hardly anyone uses the site for it's intended purpose (that is, uploading homemade games too). So either the site prospers or it dies off for real and there will be no more "community is dying" threads.
