So forgive me for not making a hundred useless posts all over so I can try and grab some rep.


I think reading the manual gives you rep, also winning badges (some of them are really easy)

http://www.scirra.com/badges

If it is really a problem, you could maybe ask scirra about the limit to be left, I think they can whitelist people if that is really needed.

And that is why you shall respect the bug reports guidelines, not only giving a capx is making the bug reproductible in one click in a situation they can work with (less time wasted trying to reproduce vague instructions) but also it helps filtering false positives.

Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

Verified your email address 25
Visit the Scirra website for 10 consecutive days 25 (works multiple times)
Read 20 manual entries 25
Upvote your first comment 25
Read the fabulous manual! 25
= 125

Leave your first comment 25
Introduced yourself on the forum 25
10 unique views on your profile 25
Visit the Scirra website for 30 consecutive days 100 (works multiple times - ps this just takes a 2 second logon each day)
=300

You should be able to get 300+ rep just by having a look at looking at the forum to learn the very basics of C2, with just 1 comment in the introductory thread. Each multiple 10 & 30 days visiting earns extra reps (25 & 100), which brings you close to 500 rep without getting into forum posting.

Thanks for the info, I had no idea about that. I still maintain that some of these measures are a bit drastic, but at least those badges are something.
By the way am I just totaly blind or wtf is that bloody upvote button?! I wanna upvote your comment, but I can't, for the life of me, find it...

I believe the upvotes is for comments in the "Tutorials" section.

Simply make a restriction on the registration of IP addresses.
So you will reduce the amount of "left" accounts.

Hi there,

I was wondering why, but I received something like 30+ mails saying there is discount on bundle. Even after clic on unsubscribe, it was still coming. I don't think this is scam because all links was heading to "https://www.scirra.com/" so would be nice to check your script ! ;)

See ya !

@orugari
Wrong section - should be posted in the Website Issues section.

Also, a quick search would have shown you that it was a bug that has now been resolved by Tom.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
