Oops. It looks like there's been an error.


As first discovered by Philip from the Game Maker Blog.

Biggest minefield of errors
YYG is currently in the MS (Microsoft) stage. You will get errors for the following: Trying to rename your topic (even if you just posted it 10 seconds ago. I know, it sucks), Trying to post a topic right after logging in (it'll force you to login twice), Renaming a game, Renaming your game review, and much more. Now while people are blaming YoYo Games for doing nothing about this problem, I must inform you that they are indeed doing something as we speak. Now not long ago they finally got around to fixing the forums search box. Remember how when you typed in it you got the famous YYG error? Well no more. It's smooth sailing from now on.

Forums without moderation
The moderators at YYG cannot close topics, pin topics, unclose topics, unpin topics, or any of the sorts of things moderators can usually do. This is being caused by all of the errors. As far as we know, they can still delete your topics. RIP YYGF.

It's been like this for about 2 months!

Is the YYG help desk really that helpful? ^.^

  1. I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

  2. Works for me. I hate yoyogames forums.

  3. I am offended that yyg would make a forum when they own a great forum gmc

  4. I'm an active members at the Yo Yo Games forums so I see a lot of what goes on there. I'm not particularly fund of it, but it's not really as bad as people make it sound.

  5. Oh, and I'm convinced that the staff ignores you when you report a bug or another member. They either act a month later or not at all. O_O

    Sorry for the double post. There doesn't appear to be an edit button.
