The thought of creating my own game has intrigued me for 3 years now. I've downloaded the program Blender and had tried to teach myself, but the entire interface was simply foreign to me. When I saw this site, it almost instantly re-ignited the flame to want to learn again. This place does seem a little, empty, but if anyone is still here I would more than love to hear their infinite wisdom. I'm checking in on Wikidot almost everyday, so if you send me a PM, I'll reply within 24 hours. I'm an almost complete noob, but I'm known to be a quick learner.
Well, it's been a long time since i was here :) And i agree with you. Blender's interface is completely alien for me. You'll have to check out some videos on youtube or something just to get started.
If this place is gonna "re-ignite" it's gonna be very much in your hands. Ask a lot of questions and maybe someone will take the time to help you :)
