No, you can't. But thanks for asking first :) That's out of the scope of gamedev.stackexchange, and Stack Exchange at large. There is a forum section about that in GDNet: Hobby Project Classifieds. This forum is more appropriate for this type of question. You can take a look at this help page and this help page. Basically, recruiting is not an issue in ...

Other options include: Graphics Design that has a tag for animations; Video Production which also covers animation. As noted in the comments, you'll want to specify a bit more what kind of help you seek and post to the most appropriate site. Finally, as Josh said in his answer, there is no dedicated "3D animation" SE site at the moment.

The "problem", in this case, is that for any "What is better?" question, the answer will inevitably be "Well, that depends". Phillips answer looks at it from a pure network protocol standpoint, pointing out that each packet will have overhead that could be avoided and things like packetloss and the routers in between the host and the client. My answer ...

From what I understand, tags with 0 question and that don't have synonym will be deleted after one day. I guess asking your question here can be interpreted as "should we make it as a synonym?". I'd say "yes", if a mod spots this question before the tag dies on its own, it could make sense to add a synonym to make the first tag easier to spot. I don't ...

Thanks for posting this here. Mods don't know the full set of rules of why some users get banned from asking questions because StackExchange staff has not shared them with us. We're constrained to using what's publicly known. And your situation seemed odd, because it did not fit with what we know. Digging around a bit more, and going back to the basics, ...

Questions about OpenGL are welcomed here, however, like Stack Overflow, we handle specific issues, and by this I mean that if you ask about "what to learn next", or very broad question, it will be closed. If your question is along the lines "I have this piece of code, and this other piece of code, and I'm trying to do XYZ, but it does not work for reason ...

I'm not aware of any such post on Meta. Further, I don't see a reason to maintain such a list, so I'm not sure why such a question would exist in the future.

That question was asked on stackoverflow, where you apparently answered it. It was then migrated here, then you were awarded the badge, then it was closed. Then it appears the answers it had were removed by community, which is why your answer is currently deleted.

Personally, I think it's a good practice to give credits for feedbacks in comments. In addition to mentioning the commenter, I usually also add the direct link to the comment. However, comments are also 2nd-class citizen, or in other words, temporary "Post-It" notes: Comments are temporary "Post-It" notes left on a question or answer. They can be up-...

Thanks for bringing this up in meta! I think it's great that you want to give other users credit for the improvement done to your answer, that's a good trait to have when working in great teams! As Andrew T. explained in his answer, the "Edit" part generally adds noise to the answer, and that's why I removed these parts from your answer. Should I not ...

I've had this happen to me before while trying for this badge both here and on Stack Overflow - just opening the page on startup doesn't seem to count as visiting the site - you actually need to navigate to another page before it will count your visit. Just viewing your profile or a random question once a day (or 10 if you'd prefer) seems to be enough.

Questions are still closed, they're just named differently for the first five days. The only other difference is edits made to an on hold question put it in the re-open queue), otherwise closed and on-hold are the same. However, the name change helps people understand that there's still a chance to fix the question. I suppose we could change the text to ...

I brought up some discussion on the various meta tags of Unity, and in turn, we merged a few into the unity tag. You would not be versed in using Unity for 3D, and not be versed in using Unity for 2D. Tags are used to identify areas of expertise, and as such, I feel it is appropriate to use unity under either circumstance. At the end of the day, there is ...

I don't think we need such distinction in unity tags. We have the tags 2d and 3d which can be used to narrow the domain of the questions. That's not exactly the way the tags are designed to be used, but that's how they're used now. Also, adding a distinction between unity2d and unity3d, I feel we'd get questions bloated with redundant and inappropriate ...

A good clue is the first comment: I'm not sure if I completely understand your question... If other users have trouble understanding your question, they usually won't answer it. (Since you probably don't want answers from users who misunderstand the question) It looks like your question outlines a viable approach to getting the behaviour you want. So ...

The question is asking for legal advice. We're not lawyers and this is not a legal advice site. Meta post The question is asking if product X has feature Y, or if Y is doable with it. It's a "what technology to use" in disguise, it doesn't age well, etc. Meta post The question is asking what technology should be used to do X. They're not very useful for ...

I understand it now. To get un-banned, I need to un-delete my deleted questions (I delete those questions because they got closed, one of those questions actually has upvoted, I thought it's a good practice to delete closed question) To un-delete the questions, go to "all actions" and find the deleted questions, click those questions and un-delete them. ...

StackExchange's automated systems do watch for serial upvoting over both the short and long term, and they will revert the votes if they detect what looks like misuse of the system - ie. someone voting up a user's content because of who posted it, rather than for the quality of the content itself. I've had it happen to me a few times, where I'll get a ...

I have proposed game-maker-studio-2 as a synonym for game-maker. https://gamedev.stackexchange.com/tags/game-maker/synonyms (I also accidentally proposed game-maker-studio as a synonym. 🤦‍♂️)

The Stack Exchange is a question and answer site; so, as already stated, it is not an appropriate platform to post job recruitment. On one side, you could seek out forums. However, it is entirely possible that you specifically wish to ask our users, whether it be due to previous interaction, or previous answers they have posted. If that is the case, you ...
