Why is this not sticky? It is great for people wanting to co-host or look for a co-host and can help people who have not hosted a game before.

I do not know. I talked to one of the mods and they said they needed to talk to the other. Sadly they either forgot to talk or it got shot down.

I need a temporary co-host for Assassins VIII as I am travelling and will not get any internet connection (I think). The co-host will need to replace me from this Sunday to next Saturday. Anybody can apply, but please be active. You must include me in all PMs regarding the game.

Kind of desperate to keep this game alive so bumping this.

It kinda slipped my mind. But just in case ibney can't do it anymore, others can still host.

I am planning a revamp for the forum game I tried to host after viewing what made good forum game good. It attempted to be too many things, while not offering enough, it was too mysterious when it came to working out what it was, it was too complex. I know exactly what to do to fix it, although I am not 100% sure that all my ideas will be enjoyable for the players, I request to discuss the game with an experienced host (Hosted a few great forum games): Ibney, Youkcat, Insane ect.

Creating your First Game (Extra Credits) - How to start off with your idea.

Minimum Value Product (Extra Credits) - This video is about the "Minimum value product." It is where I start all my projects. Its also a good idea for beginners to use.

Making your First Game (Extra Credits) - This one goes into how to actually MAKE the game.

I don't remember these videos in you post before so I only saw them recently. Great videos for making video games and help a lot in terms of making a great forum game. I originally made quite a few video game (basic obviously) but then tried to do a challenge and I just didn't know what to do to continue it, but after seeing these videos it showed me what I did right at first and then forgot. Inspired by these videos I am going to reattempt the game, I would recommend that anyone interested in forum games or video games watch these videos.

Depends on the person you ask and the person asking really.

Do you know the person/people who can change this and what they are like?
