Sorry about this, but how do you attach files to the messages you wish to send? I ask because I wnat to include a pdf with a few questions I have about the game I'm working on.

Thanks.

AFAIK, You can't include files in these posts. Usually people here do one of two things:

1) Copy-paste text excerpts of particular pieces that they'd like to have looked at/tested/reviewed, etc.

2) Put the PDFonline at your friendly neighborhood webhost (preferably not angelfire/geocities, but in tight spots they'll do*) and link the file here.

Good luck!

*Oops, sorry: That's just my opinion, and not a general consensus. Sometimes with some of the free providers you have all sorts of problems: Low bandwidth per day (so by the time the 10th or 14th person tries to download it'll say "exceeded bandwidth"), inability to sometimes link files directly from other sites (pictures and the like). And Angelfire is like the Grand Central Station of popup ads.

Heck, with prices like $6 a month (www.netprohosting.com - a local NC/RTP favorite, basically a sub-company run by a bunch of guys at Cisco), there's really no reason NOT to have your own website. :) Sorry, that's a little tangential to your concern, but I think having websites are fun, educational, and well worth the scrilla.

I feel the need to point out that the dislike of Angelfire and Geocities is Andy's personal opinion and not in any way Forge policy. I, too, find the pop-ups annoying, but it is not against Forge policy to post a link to a file on either web hosting service.

Brinkster is a good webpage site.  No popups, and it's free.
