Default How to create an official thread for a game

Hello,

I would like to create an "official" thread for my upcoming iOS game but I'm a bit confused. I have seen posts like this one where the game is presented with a nice profile section at the top with the ability to be rated by the community, among other great features.

However, there are also other games that do not feature this special header. So my question is: can I create a thread like the one I referenced above? Or maybe only staff members or members with a high number of posts can do that?

Thank you very much,
Toni Sala

Sure, you can make a thread like that. Check out this link:

Appinfo 101 Training Post

This is how to post an app description on Touch Arcade.

First get a link from the appstore. If you have ios 6, then it is easy, go to the store and hit the right arrow icon, then copy the link.

If you have ios 5, then email the link to yourself.

Include the link in the following format:

[ appinfo=all ] ituneslink [/ appinfo]

without the spaces

-------

I would also recommend using the regular youtube tag not hdyoutube tag to save bandwidth for iphone users. The picture is far smaller which saves bandwidth, and also, it is much clearer. I don't believe the hd tag even outputs the hd version of youtube anyway.

[ youtube ] code [ / youtube ]

No spaces, the code is what you get from a browser when you go to youtube on the web and it's the funny looking code after the = sign.

To clarify on the Youtube videos (because it took me quite a while to understand...)

Here is a common youtube link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1YewhQ1OOQ

You want the part after the "v="...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1YewhQ1OOQ

Take that part and put it between youtube tags.

[youtube]l1YewhQ1OOQ[/youtube]

And you get this:


Youtube link | Pop Up

Slamman, you are even more semi-famous

You are now quoted in the chatroom's IMGUR, Youtube, and appinfo instruction posts.

Here's the difference...

Using youtube:

Youtube link | Pop Up


Using hdyoutube:

Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up

There's also [hqyoutube], which I never use but always kinda assumed was somewhere in the middle.

For what it's worth, I much prefer devs posting HD videos because I actually like to see the game they're promoting. Connector's always moaning about data, let him sort his own problems out.

Besides, right underneath the HQ video is a little link entitled "Low bandwidth version".
