Definitely, if we mean to succeed, we need to out compete Degica/RPGMakerWeb.
For some thing, I think we should implement -EXCLUSIVE- resources, that are licensed specifically to rpgmakervx.net/iEntry, so that we can legally prosecute those who distribute them elsewhere. That will not affect members of this community, since they'll be here, right?
You're a sponsor no? Just put your stuff in your user forum and nowhere else, that way at the very leas only rmvx.net members can get to it, and not guests. But last time I checked, redistributing somebody's work without crediting them is still illegal lol, so I don't think that's a huge issue, as long as artists get credit where credit is due, forcing people to use the site for certain resources isn't fair, it's like Bioware forcing people to install Origin to play Mass Effect, nobody likes not having a choice in things, and in the end that could prove to be counterproductive for the site. Also, why stomp out other sites... I for one use both this forum and the RPGRevolution forum, because each contain their own unique content, I don't think we should necessarily drive them into the ground either.
On that note, what I feel the community needs is well, nothing really, I loved this community from the start for the most part and really can't think of anything to change... before I would have suggested that mods stop being such d***s to users for nothing, but the ones I'm thinking of have migrated, so that's a problem that fixed itself.
*There* Now I thought of something. I think we all need to be a little bit nicer to the noobs. New people come here, and yeh, sometimes they're pretty stupid, have broken english, or make very to little sense to us, but it drives me mad when I see somebody go off on a noob for simple things (I had a like experience when I first signed up, and almost never came back here) We can't be scaring away the new users just because we have ore knowledge than them, and I see it far too often.
Alot of people also don't understand the concept of forums, I'll be the first to admit this was my first forum to use, and yea, I didn't realize there was such strict guidelines when it came to making posts, or double posting, I saw it as any other site where you just skip though the rules, terms and conditions and post whatever you want. We need to turn the noobs into newbs so they can go on to finish their games and possibly contribute to the community.
No names, but there was a certain mod, who's no longer with us, who I saw act incredibly hostile to new users several times, I actually got myself a warn defending the noobs . No abuse to power, and more understanding.
