Hiya guys :) Relatively new around here, I'd like to know where I should post my game design, as a sort of a devlog, a thread where I can post everything about it as it progresses, and hopefully get some people to help playtest as it evolves :)

Game Design Workshop seems to be the closest thing, but I'm not 100% clear about the rules for it, to post there I must PM jwarrend? And the thread is supposed to only be alive for a week?

Thanks for the assist guys :)

Game Journals

I'd posted my materials on the "Game Journals" tab. Seems to work fine for me (though my recent lack of updates might undermine my belief in their utility...I've had other-life stuff stand in the way of game development recently).

One of the nicest things about the Game Journals is that you can set up a "table of contents" with nested and cross-referenced pages. Creating a new page is super-easy, and although it takes a bit of first-time blundering, linking and weighting pages can help you organize your thoughts and all the stuff you've posted.

Incidentally, how do I insert images in my post? I looked up the Filtered HTML and the Markdown things, but neither has an option for images, unless it's just undocumented?

Image Markup

Yup, it's undocumented (or at least I couldn't find it either...).

It's the same as a regular webpage. Be sure to have Markdown selected in the Input tab, below the text entry field. Here's an example of what it would look like...Hat-tip to questccg for the info:

///

- Every message you post, there is an "Input format" (below). You need to select "Markdown"
- Next you can use the HTML < IMG SRC="http://..."> to display the image (not a URL to the image)
- You can control the size of the image using < IMG SRC="http://..." WIDTH="100px" >. By specifying a WIDTH the image will scale down.

///

Experiment a bit if you're rusty with HTML, and I'm sure you'll do fine.
