Text wrap when BBCode Mode is off

21 March 2016 - 10:31 AM

Text used to wrap when BBCode Mode was off, but now it doesn't. I dislike BBCode Mode, and I want to be able to see everything I'm typing or have typed, while typing. Is there a way to turn text wrap back on when BBCode Mode is off?

Broken avatar or No avatar?

23 August 2015 - 10:37 AM

I've noticed a lot of users have a "broken avatar" image (see attached). Is that what we see when someone simply doesn't upload an avatar image? If so, I suggest we have a blank silhouette or something show up instead.

Is your topic REALLY about Game Design? Not everything is "game design"

09 March 2015 - 12:32 PM

Seems like everybody wants to post everything in Game Design, as if it was a board for general discussions for anything related to game development.

Well, it's not. Game Design is a specific focus. Not everything is Game Design! Think before you post, please, about where your question would be best asked.

Any technical questions (such as "what engine should I use") are probably better suited to the For Beginners forum.
Any business or marketing questions are better suited for the Business/Law forum.
Questions about the legality of copying someone's IP should be asked in the Business/Law forum, after you've read the FAQ there.
Graphics-related questions are better suited for the Visual Arts forum.
Job-related questions are better suited for the Game Industry Job Advice forum.
Story questions, or what you should name your characters or your game, are better suited for the Writing forum.
General topics are better suited for the Lounge.
Recruiting posts and job seeking posts are prohibited in the discussion forums - use the Classifieds instead.
If you want to tout your game, post your ad in Your Announcements.
If you want to post a link to your blog, post it in Your Announcements.
If you want to post a tutorial, post it in Your Announcements.

Need "education war" topic tag

24 March 2014 - 07:28 AM

We have a "language war" tag for the frequent, um, "lively discussions" around the "what's the best language" topic. Over in the Job Advice forum, the, er, "lively discussions" we get every now and then are about the question of whether or not college/university is recommended. I think it would be good if those could be tagged with an "education war" badge.

Please read the FAQs before you post for the first time -->

Thanks, and good luck!
