[edit] To talk to me

I will make my comments only in this section, and underlined, so we can all tell who's who faster. Be advised that although I may keep up-to-date, I might be shying away, screening my calls, so I could but won't answer everything. Jacky720 (talk) 02:23, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

Yay! Glad to see another happy user of the group! (And another coder!) :D I didn't know anyone else on this site played Minecraft... --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 12:08, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Same to you! Jacky720 (talk) 15:52, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

(That's right, go HTML!)

What kind of stuff do you like to program? Are you a game designer? Or a web coder kind of person? --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 17:12, 10 November 2016 (UTC)
It isn't a job or anything, just a hobby of messing with webpages. Also, if you don't own a domain, and you tell everyone, you can operate a totally free subdomain through $0.00 webhost. Although you might want to backup your site. If you don't visit it enough, it shuts down and you need to re-register. Just some tips. (P.S. My web portal has seen better days.

Wait, I just looked at your page and you publish games? Like I said above... But nice. I don't do that kind of thing, but I have made a couple of 9001% informal games, like on Scratch and stuff.
What a coincidence! I use Scratch too! However, I haven't really used it in a while, as I'm sticking to normal game development, but I do still go on there from time to time to see the crazy stuff that people come up with. I was going to make a game on there called "Darkness", but development proved to be too difficult and I was only able to finish the first level and a teaser for the game. I did eventually re-vitalize the game, but with a new name and new story, and it eventually became 'This Isn't Home' , and then I ran into problems with the development with that, and I had to take it down from GameJolt yesterday. Life of a game designer... your work is never finished. I'm going to have to fix that one now. :P --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 12:27, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
Nice, but I couldn't find your account or the game. Links? Jacky720 (talk) 19:34, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
I never uploaded 'Darkness', but I did upload a 'teaser' for it and my account is : https://scratch.mit.edu/users/JayRulesScratch/ --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 12:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
Hey, I play Minecraft too! In fact, I've been shying away from explainxkcd because I've been playing it so much... GizmoDude (talk) 21:20, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
P.S. I do Scratch as well! Well, not currently, but I posted about 20 projects on my old account 2 or 3 years ago...
That's kind of the same reason why I "left" for a short period of time. Minecraft and Game design have been taking up a good chunk of my life. Life of a gamer/game designer. :) --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 12:07, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
I've also steadily become more encumbered by schoolwork. I've still been reading xkcd, but not so much editing. I've gotten back into Minecraft, especially since I started my YouTube channel. GizmoDude (talk) 12:40, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Schoolwork? You mean I'm not the only editor not through college yet? I never knew that. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 15:54, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Schoolwork is frustrating. I'm not even in college yet... I'm a sophmore in high school. Game design, school, and still have time to actually have fun and play games.. yikes. --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 12:38, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

You seem pretty cool! I also code, and with the same languages, and play MC! 108.162.219.64
