Response to Drawing Tablet #10 and Flash Jam? 2020-12-03 18:13:01
Can't think of a better way to both promote Ruffle and the site itself, plus inform people about the great things in store for all now that Flash ain't dying after all, potentially having that news spread and spur a resurgence of interest in the medium, and the site, and Ruffle, bring in more users, and possibly more sponsors, and possibly thus too more future jams, and if not only expand on a niche that somehow seems to be regaining interest at the time of it's demise possibly also start a whole new movement; Flash revolution; take over the Internet again with technology now at least somewhat under the wing of these here Grounds! This sounds awesome...
Plus it really is a fun thing to dabble with. Might actually learn some new things; maybe make somewhat more thorough a game than my previous attempts thereof... or not... either way would love to make something.
Perfect time/perfect timing.

But Flash is compatible in modern browsers, now and possibly forever thanks to Ruffle, feels like this'd be the perfect time to highlight that too! It's a nice idea but IMHO better actually keep Flash alive, and use this momentum for great things, than reminisce one last time and let it fade away.

Was going to say it hasn't been that long now, but yeah, this the way to keep this legacy going!
