April Fools Watch

on April 1, 2008 - 4140 Views

It’s April 1st, commence the normal jokes of bad-taste and announcements that people aren’t quite sure whether or not to believe.

Smarty resigns from the GMC?

“The sheer self-righteousness with which members of this community approach someone else’s intellectual property, the self-overestimating egos, the copy-cat mentality, the visciousness with which they dare to accuse the property owner of sabotage and their disability to value YYG’s merits simply for their own profit, as well as the herd behaviour to sway with opinions in blissful ignorance, has shocked me. It doesn’t help me that Mark generalises all comments upon YYG’s intentions as unknowing, without demistifying those intentions. Not only does this render the whole discussion as pointless, it also does not feel in support of the members who have made an effort to bring a more balanced view to the discussion.

All parties have disappointed me. I no longer wish to work for the members of this community and I will take due action.”

April fool?

Doesn’t look like it. “I suppose April Fool’s day is not the best day to resign. But I am serious.Smarty has been moved to the GMC-Members group.

GMNews: GameMaker for consoles?

GameMaker News have reported details on a “GMConsole” project which will port GameMaker games to xbox, playstation, wii, ds and any manner of other consoles. With recent official news that a Mac version is on the way, a Linux version maybe on the way and the fact that YoYo are considering the possibility using the iPhone SDK it is a lot more plausible than if it was written last year.

April fool?

Yes. “Too bad it’s AF today” and the specified GMC member does not exist.

GMTech giving away $1000

An obvious April Fool. At least put some effort into it guys!

MarkUp Issue 13

A low quality release with little content, although this time I think it was deliberate. 😛
Expect GMTech’s April fool issue to be released on April 2nd, when it will receive a better reaction.

SnowMoon

The Snowmoon community is offering admin rights to the first 10 people who want them. Must be my lucky day 😛

    Wait. Didn’t Smarty already resign into the “Retired Staff” group a long time ago?

    Im a colleague of phil in school (lucky me!), and i can officially say phil’s sense of humor is very malformed, he hates april fool’s jokes. And thats the reason for the sour sound of this post. You have been warned!

    p.s. other phil trivia: he also hates checks (as in bank checks, hes not a racist (atleast as far as i know))

  10. Garion says:

    Game Maker has reached it’s peak (IMHO). It’s all starting to go downhill now

  11. Phil Gamble says:

    Looks like I made a good call on that Smarty story then! 🙂

    I have to say it quite amused me to see what gmnews were doing, particually because of the negative comments that have been directed at the “unprofessionalism” of GMB in the past.

  12. Matthew_H says:

    I just asked him and he really is leaving the admin group for ever….:(
    Also i think that that article by GM News was very unprofessional (not saying that they are professional).
    that is why i only read the “better” and more “reliable” source of GM information.

  13. Matthew_H says:

    I think out of anger he actuly has left the administrators for ever….i guess we’ll he to wait and see.
    🙁
