Dissociation

on June 5, 2007 - 3023 Views

Looking at gmlscripts.com following a suggestion from Leif902 brought something back into my mind. Dissociation.

Dissociation: describes the disconnection or lack of connection between things usually associated with each other.

At the bottom of every page of the GMLScripts website there is a line which reads

GMLscripts.com is not affiliated with Mark Overmars, The Game Maker Company, or YoYo Games.

A single sentence which makes it clear that GML Scripts is not part of the same group as the above mentioned entities. I have seen similar sentences around the Internet for example on sites about AdSense dissociating themselves with Google and on unofficial sites devoted to certain topics.

When I was setting up this blog in April I considered adding a similar sentence to the footer of the site, but I didn’t. True adding it may help boost my search rankings by increasing the concentration of the words “Game Maker” on the site but I never got around to it.

Personally I don’t think I will add a dissociation statement on gamemakerblog unless some confusion arises or I get a letter from the incompetent people at YoYoGames (whoops, I probably will now). Of course I should backup my claim with evidence so here goes:

What unbelievable unbelievably-none-existent customer support they have.

    It’s far too blatent, the pipes at GMKing must be made of water – constant leaks.

    Obviously an attempt to stir up publicity, are you waiting for the leak to reach the GMC?

    I’ve found more evidence since…but I shan’t reveal my sources (though they’re pretty damn obvious :D)

    My suspissions were first arroused when I saw Robin and Eyas being given a big bag of money in the YoYoGames offices which is opposite my flat. I didn’t think anything of it at the time. But now you come to mention it, it all seems so clear.

  7. Grego says:

    Well. I’ve put my suspicions in my blog. I may be wrong though 😛 I often am.

    If you want me to change anything, just say. I don’t want to spoil your big moment when you announce your official bond with YoYo Games as partners, you developing their magazine and suchlike.

    …whoops?

  8. Grego says:

    I’m confused, Eyas. Everyone at GM King keeps dropping hints about something they plan to do with YoYo Games…what’s going on?!

  9. Phil Gamble says:

    At least I didn’t call them impotent

  10. Robin says:
