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.

Having trouble editing a post

4 posts in this topic

I tried to link to the Wikipedia article "You aren't gonna need it" in the beginner's forum. The quote feature says that post="5136009".

The first time in I saw that the link title was cut off at the single quote in the address of that page, so I tried to fix it up. The fix up still left the link as broken, but now when I try to edit the post, much of the text looks like it's missing or messed up, so I don't want to touch it any more. The text is still visible in the thread and the quote system seems to give different text than the edit system.

I'm sure I made some mistake for however a link with a single quote in it is supposed to work, but I should also be able to see all the text in the editor when I try to fix it.

I've posted in that thread with the correct link.  I'm not sure why it didn't work for you, as it was fine for me.

I fixed both of your links in the original topic -- sorry it took so long to get to -- if you want a faster moderator response you can report the post; reporting isn't just for trouble-makers, you can use it if you'd like a moderator to help with one of your own posts too!

Well.. it does say that this form is to be used ONLY for reporting objectionable content and is not to be used as a method of communicating with moderators for other reasons. wink.png

If a post looks scrambled in regular mode, usually hitting the BBC code mode switch in the upper left corner of the posting form will reveal what went wrong behind the scenes.
