I’ve noticed we’ve had an increase in posts that relate to game design principles (as opposed to implementation details) here at BlenderArtists.org, and It’s been my feeling for a while that it would be nice to be able to discuss such topics within the community of the Blender Game Engine users. It might even be that we moved this outside of the “Game Engine” forum. There are often users who come here with the false understanding that this is for all Game Engines, and their integration pipeline with Blender. This would also alleviate these issues.
If we were to create a new forum (Which I am aware is no small undertaking), it may also be sensible to rename the existing forum categories/ perform some restructuring.
Would it be sensible to rename “support and discussion” into “BGE support and discussion”, and rename the “Game Engine” form to “Game Design”? Then we’d create an additional forum within “Game Design” called “Design principles” (or words to that effect) where users can discuss generic game design principles here at BA.
