blogs.love2d.org - The Official LÖVE Blogs!

Post by josefnpat » Tue Mar 05, 2013 5:22 am

I am happy to announce today the launch of the official LÖVE blogs!

blogs.love2d.org

A while back, there was a lot of discussion on the forums and IRC about launching a community blog for folks to help better represent the progress that the devs put into LÖVE. Of course, most LÖVE devs don't have time to maintain a blog. Through the blessings of bartbes and thelinx, I have launched a community blog set to a subdomain on love2d.org.

One thing that was brought up, was that the blog should be availible to the love community, but there should be a way to ensure that;
  1. the posts on the blog are of high quality.
  2. the blog does not stagnate and misrepresent the activity of LÖVE.
To ensure that this happens, there is an admission process. I would like to make this experience as fluid and open as possible, so I am always open to ideas and suggestions. To facilitate that, I have registered #love-blogs@OFTC that I should be in all the times to help.

If you are interested in helping out, becoming a moderator, writer or board member (or learning more) visit the about page!

Registration Code? What does that mean?

Alright, registered into the blog as substitute541, and sent a (hilarious) application. If you want a more serious one, just tell me.

Edit: Since applications apparently don't support new lines, I sent a more serious application.

Thank you guys for the bumps and the applications!

Those applications will be processed as soon as there are a few board members.

Thanks to yourself and Nikolai Resokav for noticing the newline bug, that has since then been corrected. Also, thank you for taking your time to create a more serious application :)

Oh great. I'm just reading the about page :).

Is it possible to share the accountsettings from the forum there? Or is it unintended?

The website is actually hosted on an entirely different machine, so you will have to have a second account with blogs.love2d.org.

I'm itching to write something on the blog :| . I'm not impatient though. I will probably post something about circular collisions first .*
