Anyone willing to help?

Hey all, as you might have seen from my pretty frequent questioning that I would like to become skilled at gamesalad quickly. I am looking for someone to teach/help me via skype. Id say I understand somethings now due to the extremely helpful forums and awesome tutorials, however I feel I learn better with a real person. I dont know what I could offer in exchange for this, but if you would like to help and have something in mind, or want to just help with the hopes that I can pay it forward one day myself, I would be very grateful. You can reply to this or message me directly. Thank you.

Chris

    Well.. while I like Skype.. It might benefit us all to type in your questions here and let the better GS'ers put the answers in print.. that way when others come and have similar questions.. they can read your threads and also get smarter.. ya'know?

    I hear ya sparkania, but I am having trouble with some of the written stuff and would benefit from conversing with someone as they are answering each of the questions. Id be more than willing to share the answers once the sessions are complete tho. Thanks for the feedback:)

    @mrchris317 i think learning one on one is a great idea. Maybe gamesalad could get the sous chefs set up with skype and help us gamesaladers out when reading a post just isnt enough for us to understand :D

    Well, it may not be Skype, but I've been contracted to provide mrchris317 with tailored tutorial videos, so there's definitely a need by some developers for help beyond what the forums can provide.

    That being said, the forums are still a great resource for free help, as are the GameSalad Cookbook, GSHelper.com, DeepBlueApps.com, and others.

    This is a great idea, and has been presented before, but the reality is...It's not a good idea considering the age gaps between users. We have people as young as 13 (and younger, even though 13 is the minimum age for forum activity) And as old as people in their 50's+

    A 50 year old chatting with a 13 year old child over Skype is not cool, no matter how you look at it. And even though there is absolutely no ill-intent, I wouldn't want to be a part of that in any shape, form, or fashion. There would have to be some sort of agreement that a parent be involved in situations dealing with minors, and that's where things get complicated.

    That's just about dealing with minors. Anyone 18+ involved is of course not an issue.

    With the literally hundreds of videos, and free templates, there's no reason a person cannot learn GameSalad on their own. And they really aren't on their own, considering the great, and helpful community we have here along with all of the available free material available to learn GameSalad. It just takes time, and patience, and a little determination and initiative on an individuals part.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?
