Glog again? – GMSchool Downhill

For a third time in three days, the YoYo Games glog has been updated with yet another post.

It reads,

The deadline for the third YoYo Games competition is quickly approaching. You have only four more days to submit your entries. We hope that we will see a number of interesting additional submissions. Checkout the Competition page for details. Please realize that the deadline is strict. Last time we extended the deadline because of the problems caused by the server move, but that is not the plan this time.

So there you have it, your last chance to submit a game so don’t miss out. For everyone else, click here for a list of participating games for you to check out and rate.

In other news, GMSchool, a community forum to help Game Maker users is starting to take a turn for the worse. The previously popular message board, is becoming increasingly bare with some forums having no posts in months. Due to the lack of recent support, the owner of the forum is unable to continue funding the community and therefore will not be able to make the required annual payments for forum licensing and hosting costs to maintain the site.

As a result, the community is going to be moved back to Invision Free (a free forum hosting service) where ShadePlay23, the owner of the board, hopes the forum will gain some attention and pick-up it’s popularity once again.

  1. It’s great to see updates coming again! More like it was earlier on! I hope the trend continues.

    Tell you the truth, I have never used GMSchool. Always thought it was a great idea. I just don’t have the time.

  2. Invision doesn’t have an annual cost…? Unless he’s hosting it on their servers which is pointless…

  3. wow…
    they are gonna wear out the wordpress blog from so many posts! I hope they keep it up…

    as for GMSchool,
    I think I joined, but, you have to register and get permission and a ton of other useless junk to be able to access each subforum, and I said to myself, absolutely not. each member should be able to access each forum free, and not have to get an admins permission, and a password, and show examples and be active etc… it was a good idea though… (the idea of a gm school, not the forum password junk)
