GMNews – Writers, Prizes & Info

Firstly I would like to formally welcome Qwertyman (Brian) and Broxter (Jack) to the Scorptek team. They are here to help improve the GMNews site and keep a regular flow of articles going to ensure you have all the up-to-date Game Maker and related news every day. Please give them a warm welcome and make sure you continue to send in news tips as you come across something you think will be interesting to write about.

Secondly, I just wanted to make a small apology for the lack of news articles this month (meaning September). Trust me, we’re all quite busy, Scorptek has big plans ahead and many of our team members are still settling into their school, college and university schedules (including myself). We really appreciate the time and effort Qwertyman and Broxter have and will be putting in in the upcoming months to make sure GMNews continues to be the best source of Game Maker news available. Our goal this month is to keep this site up to date with news posts at least every 2 days, and hopefully every day.

Thirdly, the September GMNews prize has been postponed or rather combined with the month of October’s prize. Due to the lack of articles this month, we don’t feel there was enough opportunity available for users to make contributions through comments and discussion and therefore the October prize will be awarded based on the combined contributions of September and October. Thank you for your understanding.

I just want to say thanks to our loyal readers who have stuck around and sent in news tips even when the site appeared to die-down a bit. We appreciate your effort to help the GMNews community, and be assured we will be ‘reviving’ the site this month.

  1. Nice a collection of good news all around.
    I look forward to seeing these new writers and shall judge them harshly… I mean fairly.. 🙂 (jk for anyone with no sense of humor) Great job guys, look forward to your news post.

    I think the prize combination was a good idea. There was hardly anything this month.
    Best of luck to the new staff!
