Title: TI Community
Post by: Siphonic_Sugar on April 30, 2015, 11:37:17 pm
You know, I don't know if I really have a say in this, but I need to say something about the TI Community.  Many of you may already know this, but if you haven't noticed, the TI Community is dying.  Almost no one is making games or programming or any of that, unlike what the old days used to be like.  ( I don't know much about the main period when the TI Community really did flourish, but I have been reading old articles and stuff). I mean, all of this stuff is being made for the NSpire and all, but it still isn't that much, especially compared to the old days.  I really do wish that DJ Omnimaga didn't have to resign or retire, what ever it is, but that doesn't mean that we can't do anything without him.  A rebirth, or renaissance, needs to be started.  BRING BACK THE TI COMMUNITY!  :w00t: BRING BACK THE GAMES!!!  :w00t: WE CAN DO IT!!!  :evillaugh:

It kind of sucks for me because I had just got into these calculators last year, AFTER all of the good stuff was being figured out.  Now I have to go read these ancient posts and stuff all over the Internet just to figure stuff out (pretty hard stuff if you ask me).  I wish I could have been there when all of this stuff like Axe and the RPGs that DJ Omnimaga used to make!

He (DJ Omnimaga) hasn't retired. In fact, he been pretty active recently. He mostly hangs out over at these days (a new group which he and others founded). As for the TI community dying, I wouldn't exactly say that. There is a lot of focus on discovering things about the new TI-84 plus CE. And althought thing do seem to have been a bit slow lately, new members are what keep things going and drive activity. If you want to help, I'd encourage you to learn about programming and start working on some projects of your own. ;)

*Edit* I see you are the one who was interested in creating a 3d project in Axe. It's a good goal eventually, but it's a prettty huge and daunting task for a first project. I'd suggest tackling several small projects at first and work up to something like that.

Whew!  I'm so glad it isn't dying, then.  I'm stupid!  But thank you for clearing things up. :)

One of the signs of it not dying, IMO, is, that whenever someone asks a question he/she usually receives a very quick reply.
Also our chat is fairly active :)

I also started calcs last year, and I don't think the non-68k section of the community is dying. The 68k community is either dying or dead though :p (My opinion might be out of date, I need to be more active)
