I guess that means I'll finally have to make a Twitter account. I'll be sure to hang around there when I can to answer questions and post updates.

Twitter is good, I've been there since 2011. Many exponents better than Facebook IMO, you won't regret it.

Yeah, that's actually really good. I've been on twitter for 2.5 years and I only have 33.

@Nimbal Fantastic! I'm sure to be joining reddit this weekend and I'm glad we got this all sorted out.

@Gawbad Here you go.

Thanks for admin status Nimbal.

So how does Reddit normally work. Is our subreddit a place for fans to start their own threads and discuss, or for us to post development updates threads to discuss, or both?

@NickTheNick it's all up to the users. I would say treat it the same as Twitter, but also let people ask questions. I'll probably be hanging out around there to answer any questions.

The subreddit is a little naked right now. For those unfamiliar with reddit, here are the customization options:


  • Header image: the little white reddit alien (nicknamed "Snoo", I believe) can be replaced. If some artist wants to take a stab at it, maybe a more... evolved alien would be fitting. Or just the Thrive logo.
  • Sidebar: The subreddit's right sidebar can be customized to contain subreddit description and rules, relevant links, and much more. Look at /r/games, for example.
  • Custom stylesheet: we can add custom CSS to change the subreddit's look, including the pictures for up- and downvotes, the colors, fonts, background image, and so on. I wouldn't take it too far, though (if at all), because a carelessly chosen color theme can quickly result in an almost unusable page.


By the way, Nick, have you accepted the moderator status? At least I don't see you in the list of moderators.

Oh, wow, I'd been waiting for the invitation this whole time and now I see you've had it sent for quite a while.

I'll get around to updating our subreddit with some more details and individuality later today.

As you probably know, I'm pretty good with CSS, so if you need any help with the Reddit page let me know.

@Jacob: Do you have a reddit account yet? Then we can make you a moderator and you can edit the stylesheet directly.

Argh, I want to. My parents are being... Cautious about it. I'll try and convince them. I would love to help out though, I'll tell you how it goes.

So, I toyed around with the subreddit settings a bit, and I was wondering, are there any suggestions you guys have for how to customize our page? I have already copied over our description from ModDB to the sidebar of our subreddit, but its not much.

I didn't want to start a new thread on this, so I'm posting it here. What do you guys think of using donations or kickstarter to pay for professional advertising? It was a suggestion someone wanted me to ask you guys.

I don't think we even need to start thinking about advertising till we're in public beta stage. While I would like to accept donations, and/or utalise a kickstarter (as people are always telling us to and say they are willing to donate), I can't think how we'd split the money. But when it comes to advertisement point and we're ready to go large on first full release, I think that sounds fine.
