    Please add me too - I meet the criteria. HomebrewSoftware for the domain/company, Arrow Antics for the released game.

    Svero, the problem still stands that any old bum could find his way into the forum you're creating. I mean, it isn't hard to have a 'game' and good ol' fake website, and you're taking down the latest notes on piracy protection. I'd personally have to have rocks in my head, to think it wise to share topics like that with anyone who fronts up a game and website, and asks to come into a forum.

    As long as people are happy, I guess.

    I'm pretty sure the number of hackers out there creating fake game companies to sneak their way into the private discussion forum on this board is reasonably low. I won't lose any sleep over it.

    I think the private forum is an excellent idea. And I suspect that the signal to noise ratio will be a lot better in the private forum than in the public.

    So now I can't wait to have our first game finished, so I can request to join :)

    I didn't really want to get into a discussion about the merits of having the board or not. It was already discussed at length for various reasons and it was decided it would be worthwhile. I'm going to close this thread now. If you still want to be added then PM me.
