Wow. Before I read it, you might want to change the color font of your texts to a brigher color when they're on a dark screen. You just read it better like how you post in these message boxes that are black but have white fonts.

I'm not sure, if you changed the format of the website, but it looks good now.

Your article was good, but I feel like you have the potential to make it better. First, what was the purpose for your article? Sure, you could just say that it advertises or only informs a targeted audience, but writing an article--if successfully used well--could effectively persuade an audience to respond or react a certain way and perceive common ideas into a new and innovative perception. Don't believe me? Read my article for my Journalism class about your topic with a different twist: http://www.engine001.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=21760&p=345822&hilit=profile+story#p345822.

My article actually features Mike and how he endured over the years to fund and support 001 Game Creator until now. After taking Journalism class, they inform me that this article could even improve if we actually start to list similar characteristic traits about what makes Mike and other software engineers strive successfully or not. Or, what commonly makes people drop their projects--oh, it's motivation!--that makes the audiences intrigued by your topic?

Right now, your article just feels like the same summary from the history that anyone could access or read, except you still write some of your own opinions. Remember, I'm not trying to dissuade you, but I am encouraging you to think outside the box because learning something new is a wonderful thing. Finally, make sure to proofread your article before uploading it online. I saw a couple of grammatical errors or unclear statements that could use a brief revision. Again, great job! Keep writing! :D
