In itself it is a complicated problem, and ahem I’m basically walking on eggs and trying to not break any.
Not only Starling but any forum based around one solution (open source, product, etc.) will off course have these 2 things
- 90% of the forum is about the solution
- 10% is misc. stuff
In the case of Starling forums, well the 10% thingy is AS3, AIR, ANE, etc.
If I go there and look at the most recent subjects and pick some not related (in my opinion) to starling I can see
Stage Size dimensions issue
I am working on a desktop application presentation, this is not using Starling however I am looking for a solution so any help is appreciated.
Unit testing with IntelliJ + Feathers SDK
I am trying to use IntelliJ to run the tests. But when I try to run the tests IntelliJ gives me compile errors:
[TRAILER RELEASE] Armajet - Multiplayer Jetpack Combat
I’m proud to present our first Starling creation! This is the labor of over 5000 hours of programming over 1 and a half years.
I have a problem with getQualifiedDefinitionNames, when I compile with AIR 20 I get
No problem, Starling is great, a lot of people use it and it’s normal that on top of specific Starling forum question they get misc. questions more or less related to starling.
Even if I didn’t talk to the Starling guys, I’m about sure that they could be “tired” to get too much not starling related questions, I know that because it’s what happened with gaforflash, and probably would not mind that these type of questions happen elsewhere.
And basically we we are in this situation
eg. we have 10 Flash forums, that’s no good, let’s unite …oh now we have 11 Flash forums
so yeah for a time it will be a bit painful to maybe check yet another forum, here the key word is “competition”
as3lang is not here to compete with other forums
it’s not the plan to steal users or to diss other forum
it’s not about being the “numero uno del forum”
it’s about providing a safe haven for AS3 dev
I do mean that
so, if there is competition or fight, that would be mainly on content
eg. try to get the news, try to post interesting topics, having discussions, try to have no spam no ads etc.
Either people would feel it’s legitimate and come
or it will be a flop because they just don’t come for whatever reasons
I don’t really know what will happen
I just feel that the AS3 community in the large need a place like this
I set it up in such a way that if tomorrow whatever forum want to load all their users on us, the server can cope with it
for the rest, well… anything can happen
