Makestation - Creativity, unleashed!

Hello, and welcome to the Makestation community! If you're like most casual forum visitors, you are probably looking for information about where to get started, the concept of the community, and more. If so, then this thread is for you! Of course, while we understand that a simple post cannot serve as a complete reference to everything there is to know about our community, we do hope that it will be a helpful overview to our guests and members alike. And as always, if you have any questions that aren't answered here, don't hesitate to ask it in our community questions board or drop one of the staff members a PM!

What We're About

If you're like me, you probably have been told you have way too many interests, and that you sometimes get a bit too obsessed with some of them. Here at Makestation, we believe there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. That is precisely why we founded Makestation. At the core, we are a creative arts/discussion forum and an indie projects support group. Ever since April of 2013, we have strived to create a community where members can freely share and discuss their interests and obsessions, as well as their latest projects, art, writing, designs, and more. So, whether you consider yourself an independent writer, musician, artist, graphics designer, or simply an avid forumer, we hope that you will check us out!

Makestation - Our Blog

Our Blog is where we will post updates related to some of our featured content, projects, etc... here at the community. It won't be primarily used for announcements, as most announcements will be posted on the forums, but it will be a hub for various content to be posted that doesn't fit the forum model. Of course, some of our active members will also be selected to post content related to our niche. If you share some interesting content on the forums, you might just be featured on the blog!

Be sure to check it out when you get the chance!


Roleplay - General Info

Makestation recently unveiled its very first concept of roleplay here at the forums. While roleplay is secondary to the overall concept of the community, some of our members are major roleplay fans, so we figured we'd throw it in. The basic concept is that Makestation will be divided into two diametrically opposed teams, which each contain their own values and policies. You will have the opportunity to create a character, select a team, and then to participate in various roleplays. And of course the twist is that if you don't represent your team/party well, you can be voted off, so you'll want to make sure you read your team's policies and values carefully so that you will be promoted rather than demoted within your party!

Feel free to check out our Roleplay Section today. We need participants!


Station Cash - Shop and more

We currently have over 30 badges to offer at the Station Cash Exchange. Station Cash is accumulated through referrals, posts, etc... on the forum, and can be used to purchase these badges. You can also exchange services with other members via the marketplace. More features related to station cash are planned for the near future!
