UK users who have BT as an Internet Service Provider may be experiencing problems loading Flash submissions - we can confirm that this a problem with your service and not with the site. We called BT about it but they wouldn't help us because we aren't customers. If you are a customer, please give BT a call to report this issue. If asked, the domain that's loading the flash submissions is: uploads.ungrounded.net.

AustinBreed has announced the June Game Jam. These game jams have all been awesome and I highly recommend getting involved! There are opportunities for everyone - artists, programmers, musicians, voice actors and writers.

Fautzo is the bassist for this band if you want to buy their album!

Wikigrounds has reached 500 pages, woah!

Go play this PLZ:

ALSO, DON'T FORGET THAT IT'S MONTHLY VOTING TIME!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Because BT has such an insufferably bad call centres, I'd advise giving this a watch beforehand. And also this, to try to get around the damned call centre entirely.

Yes, I have a long and colourful history of falling out with BT. And I'm not the only one, it seems. Fucking useless pricks.

I would but my BT connection even stops youtube movies from buffering...

Stupid, shitty company. I'd switch to another but then you have to pay BT for line rental.

That reminds me I had to edit some information on my page that apparently didn't came over correctly when they asked me about some things last year. Not that it was such a big deal.

Anyway, looking forward to the Game Jam :)

The other link at least is the important part of the video, since it has the highest chance of skipping the call center crap. The rest of it was useful tips, but I think the gethuman.com link is the best overall one.

^^^Reason #1 why they're such a shitty company. They get paid either way, even if you leave them for someone else, and since they've got a monopoly on line rental, they can be as complacent as they like. No-one in the country has any real choice, since almost all decent ISPs will only work through a BT line. It's a load of bollocks, but that's how it is.

We've had problems with BT before. And the best thing is that the exchange is pretty much around the corner from where I live.
