I also find this exciting. I loved (and still love I guess) the old version. Incredible for a flash program. I want to see many more things like this. If you bring programs to the internet, then money doesn't have to be made from selling the product, you make it from sponsorship and advertising. I'd rather see that then poor kids having to shell out hundreds of their parent's dollars just to be creative.

Yeah ! Thanks a lot man ;) ! That's what I think the future will be, I mean a free program (especially flash one) on the internet get a lots more view / audience than if I'll make a .exe and sell it.

Collab Threads that Should Be Locked
So there's this collab the mods have ignored because they're lazy. It doesn't specify which version of Flash to use, and the idea has been done to death. And most of the pages are just spam and degenerated into an argument about Egoraptor. The thread's even been crossposted in every forum.

So yeah. The mods should lock this thread

Oh it's a slow day today...

And even though it's not making games I'm developing in Flash there so I'm happy.
I decided to quit school.

Please, I don't want to start a discussion about me quitting school and getting a job etc. It pays twice as much as my mothers job. That's all I want to say. END.

I feel like after highschool it's a waste for some people to go to university that have opportunities. I've gotten a ton of job offers in flash fields, some in places I reallyyyy want to work in, but my parents keep pushing me to get grades I'd use for university.

Ugh, anyone taking university just for the sake of it?

I will eventually go, most likely, in some sort of animation program. The reason I'm not now is because I need to really practice and improve my traditional art to make a good portfolio. I went to Uni for a year, and saw a lot of friends that were changing up programs and deciding to settle with something. I didn't want to just settle for something because I could do it. Not to mention the whole experience stressed me out like crazy.

no.

You can be just fine without university/college (depending on your country of origin), but it takes more work. Like if you have the skills necessary then you can make your own business without having to go to university, but running a business is tough. If you're in the right field, then having skills can get you a job even if you don't have a degree.

But at least for my field (console game programming), companies want to see experience before they hire you. However, that puts you in a loop, cause you need experience to get a job but you need a job to get experience. That's why there's entry level jobs where they'll hire you if you have a degree. A degree is sort of a proof that you know what your doing, cause companies don't want to test every single applicant for the job.

In a highly competitive industry, that degree will elevate you above people without the degree. If company A has to choose between person A and B, who have the exact same skills and knowledge and experience (none), but A has a degree and B doesn't, they'll choose A.

When looking for a job, companies don't want someone who can't finish a task, so seeing a dropout record for schooling is a bad thing, even if you have the right skills. That degree you earn is a sign that you can finish what you start, even if it takes years (kind of similar to why being an Eagle Scout helps for job and college applications).

Then again though, if you're starting your own business, and don't think that you need to learn anything else to do so, go ahead.

Also, if I so chose, I could make a living off of flash and drop out of school right now, but I won't, because I like learning and would rather program console games. At least I have a backup plan.

That last line spoke the most to me out of all of it. You are right about the person A over person B and dropping out doesn't fair well in anyone's eyes, but I see where you are going with this. I know many people who can make a living just off making flash, myself included, but I suppose in time, say 2 or 3 years, this won't appeal to me, and I'll have no backup for what other options I have. Taking Uni after it all would seem a waste of my youth years and by then many of my other friends who went through Uni will have graduated/gotten close to graduating.

Console Games are a field I too would like to explore but for now I'll just be learning Java even though C++ is the standard. It's close enough so meh :P.

Thanks Glaiel for the words of Inspiration.

The point of a backup plan is not what you do if you get bored of your current job. You should always have your most ambitious goals at the top (so like you're ideal job preference wouldn't be teacher - garbage man - CEO, it would be CEO - teacher - garbage man).

It's similar to applying to college. You don't apply to [local university] as your top choice and MIT as a backup. When picking a career, put the hardest to reach career as your top choice. Chances are, if you spend too long in a lower level career before deciding to "fall back" on something more ambitious, it won't be there to catch you without a lot of additional work.

It's a lot easier to move down than it is to move up.
