Basically, this is a good idea, seeing most projects actually start out with usually just a programmer (.... if even that much... )
However, there are various points which speak against such a forum.
First thing, you needed to attract some population, some actual artists and designers to this forum. Seeing these are quite spare anyways these days, and that there are pages on the net specifically created for the more artistic of us, I guess this won't work that easily. We don't have any content for designers onsite, and we don't have a basic population that is qualified to answer any art related questions.
Think about it:
If you had a question related to, maybe, C++ template programming to discuss, why should/would you post on polycount, rather than on devmaster ?
In conclusion, if you come into any art related issues, there already are lots of boards to post on, boards which will provide you with much more support than we ever could.

But if there are any 3D model communities that you know of that make full body ik's and rady to use models for the game please tell me.
And i do agree though it would be hard to attract an artistic crowd and the change would be brutal. But its not like this is my site so i cant command the admin to do anything. o well
And does it always just start out with a programmer? Why not a game designer or an artist with a good knowledge of how to start a project

I use to do a lot of render posts here. Since I was the only one who posted such rubbish, everyone thought I was nutty... ;) I still remember that knighthood render I did for nomad's 100th post or some weird thing a couple years back. Ahh, the good old days...

I just went through these pages and think that we should start another community project. Let's just hammer out the design document and we can get this thing rolling in no-time! :lol:
It was the Coding Standards that inspired me.

i frequent an architectural viz website, www.cgarchitect.com
and in a post/Thread it evolved into (my doing) how about making
some online or gaming 3d models from all The 3d projects That we do
literally hundreds if not Thousands of 3d cg people hang out at This website
and if anyone would like To Try To combine efforts, i myself or others
just might have some 3d projects That would be so cool/kewl To Turn into
something more useful, see This link
just an idea, but some of us 3d Type peoples DONT know how To do code
or To make an architectural project into some kind of 3d online/game format
"we should have some kind of contest (i like starting contests)!!
where we build build online a 'community' online building of sorts
and Then be able To 'play' with This, run around and do Things
i dont know how To do This
i dont know who does know how To do This
but we could always (maybe) find someone who does know"
biggest obstacle is That most work if for hire/clients etc
but i am sure people would have some 3d doodles or would LOVE To do
something a bit more fun (just for once)
well, what do you Think????
just an Idea
Randy, i just joined so i am Totally new here

(The original idea was To shoot at clients while They are in The office)
"is There any way To use These platforms as an arch gaming program?
could you imagine The fun at work, if you could load up your latest job
and chase, kill and shoot The bloody/gory hell out of The client(s)
while demonstrating To Them just how nice Their new bldg will look
just an idea
my 12 year old is doing 3d graphics on somekind of game engine, unreal??"
