Anyway: i'm not entirely sure what use a Game Dev forum would serve, to be honest. I mean, what would go in it?
I-smel already replied but I had a little speech going on sooo...
Game design and game programming are two very different things. The flash forum right now is all about the technical aspects of creating a game.
Game design, arguably the most important job in games, involves discussions of what makes games fun, game concepts, and how you could make your game more fun or engaging, or how for example you could get people playing your game for long. Or level design, and what makes a good level. Or perhaps discussions of what your game's purpose is. Are you trying to entertain? Are you trying to convey a message? Are you experimenting with a new mechanic?
I believe we talked about this a few pages back.
