The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games.

A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately.

The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space.

Is there a way to see posts older than a year?

9 posts in this topic

Im asking this because id like to be able to see all posts i've made since i created my account but i can't seem to go back further than a year or so. But i know there still here since i have some bookmarks to some old posts i've made in 2009-2010.

 

That would be a really great feature to have imo.

In that little dropdown thing at the top of the page with your user ID on it is a link to "My Content" which I believe will show you all the threads you've posted to.

 

I don't think I've seen any way though to browse though old threads that you haven't posted to.

Yea, but it says:

 

Vortez's Content

There have been 72 items by Vortez (Search limited from 27-June 12)

 

Why is it limited to a year?

I believe that's about the time we switched to the new version of the forum software.

All the old posts are still there, but the database doesn't track poster information past that point.

I don't think that's the reason. The "My Content" tab actively stops displaying results past a year ago from the current date. For instance right now it says:

 

There have been 714 items by Bacterius (Search limited from 28-June 12)

 

And tomorrow it would say "search limited from 29-June 12", and so on.

 

That said you can try to dig up your old posts via google. Try "site:gamedev.net "started by [your username]"" or "site:gamedev.net "posted by [your username]"" etc.. (with the inner quotes to get exact hits - also add in some date keywords if you feel extra lucky)

Looks like it goes back forever in time, but still is limited to the last 1000 posts, or 40 pages.


That works well for new members who only have a few hundred posts, but those who have been here for years or who post a lot don't get their full history.

Of course, I don't really want my full history to show up, I like the Internet to slowly forget. So personally I don't mind it being limited to a time or number.

If the intent is to show the full post history all the way back to the good old days 14 years ago, it doesn't quite do it completely.

Some of us have ridiculous posting frequency...

 

Mine hits 40 pages in 2010, so I'm missing 7 years of posts :)
