A glog entry earlier today by YoYo Games has highlighted a desire of the staff to hold a number of face-to-face meetings with regular Game Maker users to discuss improvements, desires etc. A poll included asks people to mention where they live (the basing of YYG in Scotland means most of the options are for particular Scottish cities, then other countries in the UK and finally “outside UK” are options). Currently nearly three quarters of voters are outside UK, with under 8% in total being from Scotland.
Although a detracting factor is that a GMC member residence graph by James Rhodes (which now, for most, just produces a grey box) produced very few Scottish results, a positive consideration is that a lot of commenters on the entry that live outside Scotland (and even outside the UK) have expressed an interest in travelling for one of these meetings.
Should these plans prove a success it will be interesting to see their results.
