after 5 years of running the german Director User Group
on www.directorforum.de we decided to launch the english
Why? I've been thinking a while about how to get Director a bit
more into public attention. I strongly believe that we all
can get a lot of this done on our own by aggregating
in one place ... and show the best of what can be done with
Director / Shockwave.
What? Directorforum.com is a strong community forum system with a
of features waiting to be used. Apart from being a forum, the
first strong additional feature is its ability to collect the
newest information from the world of Director via RSS-Feeds,
Usenet or mailing lists.
If you visit www.directorforum.com, you'll see a Direct-L
where the mailing list is mirrored (as from now on). You will

It's that easy. :)
What else? Directorforum is an official Adobe User Group and it is a
non-profit project run by me. Why do I note that here?
Because the website is mine, I can decide what is possible
and what isn't.
One of my decissions is, that I will give the large region
where you currently see this lame sky to anybody who wants
to promote his Director work, his new Xtra, his newest game
for free. Yes folks. It's for FREE. Advertise yourself and
Shockwave/Director. You want to create a banner? You want
to provide a video? Any other ideas to show your stuff?
Just let me know. Everything is possible.
And ... don't miss the Director Showroom.
Any of you can get mentioned there, and it doesn't cost
you a cent. It's just about collecting compelling content
and showing it to the public.
And now? Feel free to visit

write access. Let me know, what you think. Share your ideas
for improvements. :)
