As promised the new sub-forums were added to the creations forum on the Game Maker Community. The sub-forums consist of, Arcade, Adventure & RPG, Platform, Puzzle, Shooter, Strategy,
Simulation and Sports, Tools and Applications, and Open Source. It really did help clean up/make it easier to navigate through the cluttered creations forum, which I hardly visit because most games nowadays suck. I would hope that they are considering doing this to several forums (maybe like the Works In Progress, which is overloaded with games that will never be finished). Comments on the new sub-forums?

Obviously this has it’s downsides as well, but the downsides now are far less then what they use to be.
I think it is a lot easier this way, it allows me to see a clearer look at all the different games that are there. If I want to have a review of a Puzzle game, I can go straight to that section and have a look around and so on with the other genres. I don’t regularly spend time playing GM games unless they have been recommended to me by someone, and normally when I am off looking for the game topic it is several pages down and gets has no attention despite being quite good.
Great move by the team to help creators and gamers gain a better gaming experience of GM games. Bring on more changes to better the forums.
In situations where you try to find content for a magazine in your case or a show in mine it can be rather inconvenient.
Love it love it love it. Oh, to post a thread about a new game and not have it disappear five minutes later! What joy, what rapture! Love it, love it, love it.
I dont know,, I find it more annoying now to look for games, especially since I usually go randomly looking, and dont have a particular genre in mind. Such process now requires clicking on many links, etc.
Agreed; I love it (even though I almost never design games and will most likely never visit or use the forum myself).
