This post may be considered a bit of a departure from
usual front page outings, but I feel that a lot of you, including myself,
have been taken for a ride. I want to clarify a recently developed issue.
A while ago, there were whisperings of a GameHippo/Caiman.us merger, to
create a supersized community freeware website. The news was posted HERE, allegedly by
Boson (the main owner of GameHippo). However, upon travelling to the
Caiman.us forums (found HERE),
the owner of the website denied any involvements in any talks with GameHippo.
Later on, Boson told the owner that hackers had somehow placed the news.
So what, you might be asking? Well, I went to the TDC forums this morning,
and found a topic saying "Congrats Circy!" Intrigued, I opened it and was
somewhat alarmed to discover that I had been appointed as a reviewer at
GameHippo. Next, I went to my e-mail inbox, and discovered nine
congratulatory e-mails regarding my new position. So, off to GameHippo I
went, and there it was on-screen: "Circy from the Daily Click website
(http://www.create-games.com) has joined the Gamehippo reviewing team. He
will only be reviewing games made using the Clickteam products"...
I have to stress that this is simply not true. I have never applied
for any position as a reviewer at GameHippo, nor have I been asked by any of
the GameHippo administration. I've sent an e-mail to Boson asking why this
news is on the front page of GameHippo; I've had no reply yet, but I suspect
that hackers have done the same thing as mentioned earlier - reported false
So yes, I just wanted to make clear that, at present, I am not
affiliated with the GameHippo administration in any shape or form. Of course,
should they actually ask me themselves to join, then I probably will,
and I may have to leave either TDC or Klik-Me behind as a result. For now
though, rest comfortably that your favourite admin (lol) isn't going to ruin
another community site. And please, don't be taken in by any rumours. I will
confirm myself whether or not such news is true.
