I used KNP nearly two decades ago... I was stuck with dialup internet for a long time which prevented me from joining any community such as TDC. What attracted me to MMF2 was the fact you can export your games or apps across such a wide variety of platforms. Much of the generic work (as far as game development is concerned) is already completed for the user. Although its showing its age by now its still a very elegant way to put together a program for people who don't want to learn code. The biggest flaw in programming is that a majority of the books which aim to teach it don't make it interesting if not a downright snooze. The visual aspect of MMF2 is it's greatest strength and 2d gaming by far is not dead. It will take up until I start getting gray hair before 3d games will even come close to reaching sheer number of 2d games on the market. MMF is still a practical tool and is a great way to get yourself started in the indie game scene. In that same respect don't ever limit yourself to a single tool. Keep learning new things so that in time your skills will improve.
I see the site's also gone lax on the language rules since a few years back

I've been coming to the daily click for years now. Only recently did I become a member to search for a game that unfortunately no one was able to help me find. Changing some stuff around, sure it can't hurt but closing the site is in my opinion a mistake.
My biggest problems with the site are that unless the game was posted in the past few months it may be lost forever. I've been looking for at least 5 games now that neither the author has nor does anyone else have them. Another problem I have and I realize I'm in the minority here is that a lot of games featured on the front page are apps for the iPhone. I do not have a iPhone so I do not read these articles as they do not apply to me. Where are all the PC games? That's why I used to come here and that's why I will still continue to come here.
Without this site I never would have found many of the games I still play today. I am eternally grateful for this site and would hate to see it go.
I do miss the more active days of TDC. I wish I knew if there was something I could do to bring it back to its former popularity!
Gradually getting less bad at making games!

Woo! Yeah! Make games!
I think what some people mentioned above about people moving on from Klik is true. I think as the people who were really good at MMF2 got better, MMF2 didn't really keep up and they all moved onto other software and engines.
