Website Status
« on: January 30, 2014, 06:38:50 pm »
To avoid keep replying in the other thread I have decided to make my own thread for announcing website/jam status changes.  I will edit this post with updated information so watch this thread  :D

Currently
  • The jam is now complete!
  • You can view all the games for this jam here
  • If you happen to loose (AKA forget) your password send me a PM here or on IRC and I will reset your password
  • A countdown timer has been added to the site  Due to issues this has been removed until I can find a suitable replacement

the countdown is wrong, it indicates the jam begins in 30 days :)

yea for me it also states 30 days, but the correct amount of hours and minutes are there if i ignore the 30 days thing. I'm in USA if that makes a difference.

Yes I know about the countdown 30 days issue (I have it also now), it seems to be a bug in the countdown script I am using since I can view the page source and still see the correct amount of seconds until the jam begins.  :P

I have implemented a "work-around" for this issue by hiding the days when the remaining time < 1 day  :D

Removed due to more issues...

TL;DR Nope  :P

Long answer: Ask me after the jam is over for full list of reasons  ::)

Is there a maximum length for titles? When I try to submit my game using the full title, "Shielding: Episode 114", it 403s, whereas if I use a title of 20 characters or less, it works just fine. Any chance of getting that fixed, or is it more complicated than it appears on the surface.

Yes the maximum length is 20 characters, however this is not the issue. The issue is that for some reason the host is blocking any url queries that contain "http://{insert site here}". Even with proper encoding of the url query results in the same response. The only thing I can say for now is that you should avoid putting the "http://" or "https://" in front of any links you provide.

If this doesn't make sense, take for example this link "http://bitbucket.org/zsbzsb/shotwarp". If I put this in any of the link boxes and then make a name longer than 20 characters the site will point you back at the submissions page with the link in the url in order to refill the textbox for you. However the current site host is blocking it and the result is a 403. In order to bypass it simply change the link to "bitbucket.org/zsbzsb/shotwarp".  ;)

Yes the maximum length is 20 characters, . . .

I really liked the full name, but I guess I can settle for just simply "Shielding 114".

On another note, I have had some trouble formatting my description using BBCode tags. What "basic BBCode tags" are supported? Specifically I am interested in for the headings in my description, but it just doesn't seem to work (the tags aren't processed and [b">[/b"> is displayed instead).

By the way, thanks for creating the website. It really is great having it.

Currently the only supported bbcodes are lists [ ul ] [ ol ] [ li ], text alignment [ left ] [ center ] [ right ], [ br ] breaks, and links [ url ].  ;)

I hope to have more done by the next jam  :D

Why not up the character limit to 50 or so since this would help with some naming issues? :)
I have many ideas but need the help of others to find way to make use of them.
