GM-Resources looking for new owner
September 22, 2009
James Rhodes from Roket Games is looking to sell GM-Resources.com. The website features a resource search that utilises (or steals depending on your viewpoint) content posted on the official Game Maker Community.
There is also a multi-site game search and the world map of Game Maker Community users.
“Due to financial issues, I may have to let go the Game Maker Resources domain in the near future. Ideally I’d like to sell the service and domain rather than just let someone else take over the domain (which would cause confusion to the people who still use it).”
– James Rhodes
If you are interested in taking over the site you can drop James a PM at the GMC.

[…] the announcement that the site was up for sale a number of Game Maker groups including GMVision and Game Maker Station expressed an interest in […]
Reading your writing, that has done me and I’m sure NAL harm. We may even have a laughing-attack-at-the-morn, which is very serious in may cases.
Anyway, I hope that James finds someone who can continue to host and maintain it.
“What is your asking price for the site?”
“I am too busy loving America to want that site anyway.”
Can’t beat a bit of comedy.
On a similar note, I’m surprised the Americans of the Game Maker world aren’t trying to get you deported. You give the place a bad name to non-Americans like me.
On a relevant-to-the-blog-entry note, I’m not interested in buying the site but I hope James gets an offer he’s happy with (seems it’s already happened).
I am not going to beg a douchebag to buy a site that makes less profits then I already do now. Also, Matthew H and NAL you all need to stop the hatred towards me. I have done you all no harm.
Your an idiot. You wouldn’t pay $20 for it? 1. You don’t have that kind of money. 2. If you did, you where putting it under consideration.
I’m not a begger. In fact, I have quite a few people interested.
(I have actually pretty much decided who will get it at this point, if they continue to be interested that is :P)
then Screw you James Rhodes, I wouldn’t pay $20 for it anyway.
Beggers should never be choosey.
I am too busy loving America to want that site anyway.
Highest bidder who I also determine can maintain and improve the site. e.g. ProdigyGM wouldn’t get it even if they offered me $200 for it..
Jonathan and I were considering buying the domain (we wrote him a PM a few minutes after this post was out), he replied basically saying that the highest bidder wins, but hes asking a minimum of 50 AUD.
lmfao, screw you Rohan!
Yeah, Brad is right. No selling it to ProdigyGM.
I hope you don’t sell it too cheap, or else some noob will pick it up and it wont be maintained very good.
James, Read you GMC inbox.
Yea, if people consider it “stealing”, then they are calling Google a thief as well. Are you using PHP to crawl the GMC?
What is your asking price for the site?
Yes. The bot which scans the GMC is not automatic however, and you’ll need to run it on your local machine as it can take sometime. It only needs to be updated every few months though. If you are interested in using it however, you’ll need to contact the administrators at the GMC to get permission again.
Steals? I don’t mirror any of the files that are linked on the GMC as that was part of the agreement with the GMC administrators at the time. I index resources in a similar way that Google indexes webpages.
