Dead link for "#AGS Quotefile"
« on: 12 Jun 2016, 18:27 »
If you go to http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/community/ there is a dead link for "#AGS Quotefile". I'm pretty sure that complaining about the content of this page was on my to-do list (content seemed to be offensive for the sake of being offensive, doesn't seem a great way to promote a game engine or it's community) so I'm not sad it's gone, but I wasn't sure if anyone had realised that the link doesn't go anywhere now.

Fixed.  All content was submitted by the community, and content deemed offensive by sufficient numbers of the same community deleted.

So you'll be cool with me posting the same content on the forum then?

If it doesn't get reported as offensive using the appropriate mechanism, yeah.

What's the mechanism?

I believe AGA means the "report to moderator" button you may found in the bottom-right corner of the post.

As for the quotes... apparently, the community was once considered closed enough to be okay with that.

Thank you for clarifying. I work in education and would like to recommend AGS to learn programming, but unfortunately the lines between engine and community are very blurred...
