I've played all the doubles ones except that 15 footer. I'll try that once I can handle 14s dx.
I joined this site after meeting Junkyarddog, and someone else (forgot his name) at the game room in front of Dave's machine at AB last year. I had a great time chatting with them. They had made try some of Insane Steve and Dark Luke's doubles charts.
I remember thinking, "wow people make doubles charts now, awesome".
When I got back I registered, saw there were no elitist assholes like in AIJ, and no l0k vs new england drama (although that was funny). On top of that I was impressed the quality and quantity of the charts here. So I stayed.
Dancing games will be around constantly. I'm a regular at funworld in Nashua, NH, US. Every few weeks I see new players and have referred several people here. The game continues to grow because it's just a great game. Listen to music + exercise without that monotone that is the gym.
I've been playing since 5th mix, way back in the day. I remember back when Max 300 came out. That song was considered impossible to beat. Then a video popped up with someone from Japan AAAing it using the bar? Ahh so there is a use for that. Then the 'bar + mods are cheating' war that came. Now we have 17 footers, lol.
I've noticed the only deterrent of new players are people who have an elitist attitude. There aren't many anymore but they do scare new players off. Being friendly and giving advice goes a long way.
Will I ever make charts? I would love to try my hand on it someday. Right now I have too many projects that need to be finished first. Outside of my regular work I am launching 2 businesses; a marketing + software company, an entertainment business, and I am writing a books series (which I have an agent for and a tentative meeting with a publisher later this year so I need to finish it ). Once the ball is rolling and I don't need to put as much worked into those I'll take up learning how to step
