    At the risk of sounding stupid, is making your game page public considered publishing it? Or should it be set to private?

    I wish the deadline was not today. Maybe extend it a few weeks?

    You need to make your game page public for it to be eligible. As long as you're not selling your game, there won't be any issue later.

    Thank you! I was a little nervous, because when you make it public the itch.io page says it's published. Thank you for clarifying. :D

    I've submitted my game. It appeared on my dashboard, and I have set it to public.
    But I can't see my game on the igmc game jam.
    Is there another thing that needs to be done?

    @EpicFILE Go to the first page of this thread, click on the join the jam link, then once on itch, click the submit link.

    Question. If our game relies on testers to play it fighting the random encounters to make it 1 hour and less if they run away from them.
    does it still count?

    I'm not sure if this was asked already or not, but are we allowed to upload fixed versions of our games during the contest? Like if we discovered any errors and such and want to put a fixed build up, or should we wait 'till the contest is finished?

    I hate to ask this, but is there any way to turn in a late submission? It turns out I just published my game, I didn't actually submit it to the game jam. Probably should have looked at some of these helpful links on the forum.

    I don't think it's a problem, but are allowed to edit our game page? Mine's pretty bare bones and all (because stress deadline frenzy).
    I also want to include a link to the font I am using, which was standard in Windows 7/8, but somehow got deleted in 10 T.T

    To clarify, I won't be updating the actual game download, just the page, so it looks a bit nicer and has some more info (like features etc.).

    I'm a bit confused as to how voting works. It says, "You haven't voted on this game yet. Select each criteria you'd like to vote on for this entry then click save." But the only criteria is "Vote on this entry" with a checkbox for "Vote", and then a button "Save Rating". Nothing else appears when I check the box for vote. Can we only vote once, for our favorite entry? I guess I thought we could rate the games, but it doesn't seem that way.

    Maybe it's a yay or nay kind of thing. Like up voting.

    Can a contest admin please make a new sticky thread explaining the voting process? I keep seeing things about "rating" games, but the only vote option appears to be a simple checkbox. This raises a few questions:

    1. Is voting an actual rating or simply a yes/no vote? If you check "vote", is that followed by a prompt to give an actual rating?
    2. Can a vote be changed? (I would've already tested question 1 if I knew the answer to this)
    3. Can more than one vote be cast to support multiple projects?

    Thanks!

    @Kes Sorry I panicked and was not aware of what I was doing. You can remove the 1st post if you need to.
