We've decided to merge the 'work release' into the '3D and '2D' forums, and have added optional tags you can attach to your threads indicating whether a piece of work is WIP or a final release. This is to help focus on our core (ha ha) forums and make those thrive as much as possible!
We're also looking at doing similar with the students/beginners forum, as we feel it may be beneficial for newer developers to ask their questions in the main forums where seasoned developers are more likely to be on hand to help. You may see that forum follow suit in the coming days.
Thanks for your support everyone!
