When and how did you discover Game Maker?

What advice would you give new Game Maker users or those who would like to improve?
first read whole manual!, start making some game based on ur knowlige imidietly, ull still find some problems that u are not able to deal with, read over the manual ask people on forum(thats how u learn) in next game ull start with little more knowlige, keep chalenging this way step by step.
What elements of a game are most important to you and why?
for me it is the game play. I mostly take game as an experiment. I always comeup with some gameplay or gamerules and i wonder how they would work out, thats the biggest motivation for me.
Why do you make games? What is your primary inspiration, motivation, or both?
as i said biggest motivation is to see how my ideas about gameplay and game rules work out, other motivation is to show the world what i can do. i mostly find inspiration in experiences from everyday life.
Do you have other artistic pursuits other than game development? If so, what?
i study industrial design of ceramics and porcelain. I might say thats my major realization. Ofcorse study inclues painting drawing some sculpturing etc. So u might say im bit of artest. But i have to say my design works are often oposite of my game. They are balanced, fresh atc. no crazyness. Oh i actualy play some music and compose some as well as hobby.
Any other comments?
well if u want to make me a fanclub and its site ill welcome it, dont be shy.
