Well, after the trouble I had signing up to this website (Ty to Jon Lambert for helping fix that), Now I seem unable to post an article I've written :< When I click submit, it boots me to an empty article form, saying ive submitted 0 of 4 allowed articles today. Is there somereview proces they undergo? or am I simply having the worst luck :< Tried this in both firefox and IE too, but no dice.

It was a really good article too! Well at least I think so :< Dealing with antialiased static movement, minimising the objects used in static collision detection and also a nifty Line of Sight system I came up with :<

Any ideas?

Hmm, you know I had similar issues with this this morning when I tried to send DC Mails and post in the forum. I seemed to be able to fix it by clearing the cache, but for some reason I thought that it had fixed itself since it didn't work immediately afterward.

Welcome to TDC!

No dice cache cleared and still cant post the article =/

Ah well, I'll try again later, maybe it's some issue that will resolve itself after a while after all, I'm not having much luck :<

TY for the help and the welcome though it's slightly heart warming to find others who think along the same lines as me when creating things in MMF etc. (I devised the static movement engine and using collision detectors on my own years ago, though I think I might have had some earlier inspiration from some of the TGF on Cd tutorials)

Have you PM'd Flava? I'm sorry you can't post your article, but you've triple posted now, and we've found that the general populace won't be able to help...

The most likely thing is a formatting error in your article - I can submit articles fine. Try and submit a test article with just a few words in it and see if that submits correctly (just make sure to delete the article afterwards). If that works then it probably is a formatting error in your other article - I sent you a PM about how I can help you out with that.

Hmm, only formatting effects i might have would be picture tabs and then maybe mathematical symbols such as + - * / etc. Just to check I'm doing the image tags right, and assuming they're the same format on the boards:

I'll try posting a pictureless version of the article

Edit: Well it certainly isn't the images, and i even replaced/removed tab indents =/

Hahah. Well this is embarrassing, Flava, I apologise for having your submittal systems put in doubt. It was my own fault, my article description was 7 characters past the limit.

We, It's all up and posted now, check it out: http://www.create-games.com/article.asp?id=2137

Now all that's left is to find out how to edit the article, would be nice to format it a little now that ive posted it so it's a bit more readable.

How the heck did you make an article that's past the word limit? Even I can't do that
