Please follow the code of conduct.

  • Be patient if you don't get a reply immediately, people are not at their computer all day.
  • Do not cross post the same message into multiple channels. We're a pretty small community, the same people will see your question regardless of where you post.
  • Stay on topic. There are dedicated rooms for developers and for artists (see above).
