    Still, I think the people actually willing to go all the way get's
    smaller and smaller and people like erhm...krak... start showing
    up more and more.
    I think the people actually willing to go all the way is actually increasing, due to the fact that information on computers is more accessible, but on the other hand the people are aren't willing to do the work is also increasing due to the same reason. More and more people are exposed to it, so you'll be getting more of both types of people.

    With people that want to go all the way i mean people that
    acutally are prepared to put much effort,time and patience in it.

    Right... And I still don't see how people being exposed to clicky things are going to reduce that number. I also don't see how that could lower respect for programming as a profession.

    Programmers are getting lazy of the clicky! Also they get used
    to just clicking on stuff to create things and think theyre ready
    to program just to notice that it's a major sitback compared to
    clicky and so drop out eventually.

    one thing that annoys me about you (among many).... and this is far off topic... but you always quote someone even tho their comment is directly above yours... NOT NECESSARY, I think we understand who you're replying to.

    From what i see daily i can tell you all that lots of ppl think that programming is as easy as eatin-a-pie-on-a-hot-summerday.

    Im not saying evryone thinks like that but in my class lots of ppl do. The only one who has ever told me that programming should be considered "not-"""that"""easy" was a collegue student who got straight A's evry time.

    Mayb the world is just getting dumber and dumber by the minute

    Most people who think programming's really easy have never programmed in their lives, so their opinion of it's of little value. It's like me saying all you need to be a doctor is a sharp knife and bad handwriting.

    I do that because some people don't like reading the entire
    thread just to figure out what was ment in a reply so i include
    the text i reply upon.

    Righto that true.
    To get back onto the doctor topic... im a very cheap doctor since i havent had to pay any studies to become one. U see my mom has a sharp knife and i have the bad handwriting... so i guess i could call myself a doctor .

    I also noticed alot lately that people are asking for a way that
    (at least i) could come up after a bit of thinking to do certain things, Like how
    to write a certain algorithme, Is it just me or is the level of
    creative programmers going downhill?

    It's just you being an elitist jerk. Some people need help with programming - we're not all born Ritchie.

    That's because some people don't understand programming at first or need help getting going. You seriously don't think people should be allowed to learn?

    I read the first post, and all I have to say is: Don't worry about it.
    Honestly, why would you care if someone wants to use a game maker to create games while you're using a real programming language?

    I know goddamnit! I'm under the impression some people just
    don't try anymore and run off to the board asking, Most problems
    i you can easely solve by a simple Google search.
