It's pretty sad that I do want to make stuff still but at the same time can't be bothered to put the effort in. I think it's related to the slow death of TDC in a way, because the first thing I would do after making a game was to post it here.
I'm not sure there are any other communities out there simply because people don't use forums anymore. They all use Twitter, Facebook and Youtube. etc.
The thing with reddit, is by default its just a plain message board. So yeah, it looks simple (or to some, like garbage). It's up to the maintainers of a subreddit to customize the look and feel. Personally I don't care, it's more about the news and content posted, like rss.
Wow still here, I love this website. I just got clickteam Fusion 2.5 from the developers humble bundle. It's still going as of 1/5/17 if anyone is interested. Last time I used a clickteam program was The Games Factory. Clickteam just updated their youtube channel to show they have a tutorial service at this website "http://www.fusionrad.com/onlinecourses/". I was thinking of taking the course but before looking into it I was reminded of this website and thought I'd check it out.
I'd like to see fusion become more popular, FNAF brought a lot of attention to clickteam so I think they are planning on keeping the momentum.
