Hey guys, so I was wondering about the possibility of a crowd sourced project.

New Gamesalad mascot/ Gamesalad interface. I mean we've seen some of the best ideas came from the users, and why not let us put together a mesh-up so that we are not at the mercy of the internal interface designer/team and actually show some productivity instead of complains.

and hopefully it'll inspire the GS team to be more interactive with it's users.

    if we get some suggestions or feedbacks i can actually design the interface itself during my spare time. if there's enough interest we can actually set-up a proper post dedicated to the project and set-up some criteria... etc.

    Hi ultima, your enthusiasm is appreciated by all, I'm certain, but personally I think that, not only would a "game-user committee" for GS interface design not be a good idea for a number of reasons, also it would seem pointless to change the interface drastically. The GS team are an experienced bunch and the interface is developing just fine - surely you'd agree? - avoiding bloat in particular while still retaining much power. Also, all suggestions for GS are always considered carefully by the GS team for inclusion/amendment to the workings/GUI already.

    Scene Editor improvements are in the Roadmap; there will always be improvements/tweaks, etc; no point trying to fix what's not broken...

    you do have a point, but i for one do not see what it is but what it can become. surely they are experienced, but experience does not usually bring innovation. but anyways i'm just gauging interest, if no one is interested why would i bother =) and i'm not interested in user committee.. i'm interested in innovation through collective power.

    Well, I did put game-user committee in quotes! Whatever it's called, it'll be working at odds with the GS interface design team, I really believe that. "Collective power" isn't necessary either, we're not storming a castle!

    But if you think the interface needs redesigning, and other members agree with you, and a power collective is formed, it'll be interesting what comes out of it; how much those outside of this collective will agree with your decisions; and more importantly, if GS themselves would easily let go of such important reins, if at all.
