Hello 
I’m just thinking about setting up a friendly disability gaming community all abilities of gamers are welcome I would appreciate to hear what the scope community. I have had idea for setting up this for a few years but has just been a idea but I was not sure it good idea 

Because I saw a comment from a person who was getting abused by other gamers online. This is because I have also have faced abused from other online players before.

    Yeah definitely a good idea, although you'd have to find a bunch of folk who play the same games

    Or I was had thought have changed to disability a gaming community review page so you people on scope community who play Ps4 a short review about the ps4 game and would put a star rating if they would recommend the game to other scope community who purchase the game or not. The disability gaming review page could also offer tips and advice on how to get past a level on a particular game or cheats on a particular game 

    I would appreciate what the scope community think about the change of idea.

    I was also thinking set up a disability game clan for a particular game or level a scope community member might be stuck on but I find would be more understand than some able-bodied clan group I have played online who are not very tolerable to my slow gameplay because cerebral palsy

    I think it's definitely a good idea to set up some kind of gaming group @Globster. I'm sure there are many people, even those on the community, who would love to get involved in regular discussions or conversations about gaming.

    Hi @Globster
    I tend to play offline on my own on RPG's. But I would be happy to advise / help or discuss things like if anyone is stuck on a certain game if I can. Or talk about where to buy and trade in games ECT. Or anything concerning consoles and game playing if that will help in anyway.
