Places for discussing non-open source games

Places for discussing non-open source games

Postby qubodup » 04 Dec 2009, 15:08

Talking about games that are not free software is not forbidden on these forums, but if discussions have no open source game development context they might fit better elsewhere.

Feel free to chat on #freegamer-offtopic though!

I guess since we have the influx of post about the latest free to play mobile games relatively well under control, I think we should also address the die-hard FOSS purists that show up from time to time: Yes you are welcome here, but don't harrass others.
Recommended short read: https://write.emacsen.net/the-value-of- ... e-software
When we argue about who is “more pure” or when we tell people that they're bad or evil because they don't use either the same software stack we do, or use the same terminology we do- then we've lost the point of Free Software, which is to spread Freedom.

Be the person who welcomes, not the one who shuns.
