Why do people feel the need to make a new 'project' in order to write three lines that don't even describe the games very well.

Yep. I think I discussed this with Hayo a while back, people are making projects with two sentances about their "game" and pissing off. I still think the project should only be accepted with minimum of 2 screenshots and a minimum word limit.

If you don't like it, don't have to read it. At least they're saving you the time . And there's not too many of those.

This whole 4 word thing seems to be ineffective.

If you find a project like you described then you can use the alert admin tool to report it, and we'll take a look at it.

 
This is a signature. Have this one on me.

I'm not complaining because there isn't enough to read. I can't tell if there is a shit description until ive clicked on it.

Besides the reason for saying this is because it pushes my game down the list too quickly unless i update it every 3 days.

That's a good point. Perhaps we* should introduce a rating system to the Projects and introduce them to the "What's Hot?" sidebar instead of the "What's New" section.

Just make it so there's a screenshot checklist when you list the projects. Like the listings Project Name, Progress, Owner and Updated, there should be a "Screenshots" there too, saying either Yes or No, or how many of them.
Then add a checker you can click on when you list the projects to hide all projects without any screenshots, if you'd like.

Maybe add such a function for number of words in the description, too. Or something.

Speaking of which.
Do we remove projects from the project section once we've added them to a downloads section?

 
All platforming problems can be mostly solved here:

www.zephni.com

These are very excellent examples by other people and are very informative.

Just leave them unmodified I'd say, then they can slowly drift down but if someone wants to read the devlog it's there.
