    Here's a few to get started...

    We ask new members to participate in the forum for two weeks, so you can better understand the game and the way levels are evaluated, before allowing you to rate levels. You can review levels in the comment section, and that's a good way to get a few "likes." After two weeks, when you have at least five likes, you will be able to rate levels.

    Sorry, that's a little forum glitch; the rating is still there. If you refresh the page, you will see it.

    Level ratings cannot be deleted, but you can change your rating. Just rate the level again, and your rating will be updated to the new one.

    The first two levels from new members are checked by a moderator to make sure the level code is readable and the card is properly labeled with title and author (so players can find your level when they search). This check is also to prevent a new member from posting many levels all at once. We ask members to only post one level a day, so everyone gets a fair chance for their level to be seen and played.

    Yes.

    Yes, but sometimes strange things happen out there.

    Can I make a thread of easy and non-ratings levels?

    Yes, of course. But levels in a thread won't be seen as much as in the level section, and you may not get many comments.

    If you are mostly wanting to demonstrate interesting level building techniques that you discovered, you could post them in Game Behaviors or Level Creation Help. That's where I originally posted my Levels Good Enough To Tweak thread (a moderator later moved it, because it is also a list of good levels by other members). You could also post it in the General section. But, again, the levels will get much more attention in the level section.

    Why can't I post youtube videos less than one minute long?

    Youtube recently started using a different URL format ("shorts") for videos less than one minute, and if you try to use it to post the video in the forum you get an error: "The specified URL cannot be embedded as media"

    But if you just change "shorts" in the address to "embed," it will work. So, for example, instead of entering https://youtube.com/shorts/LAWbVPmg33o for the video address, put
    Code:
    https://youtube.com/embed/LAWbVPmg33o

    Why is the QR code on my card so small? Or The code is small and I can't scan it...

    When a level is very large, the Mekorama app reduces the pixel size to fit all the information in the QR code (which produces a code that is much smaller). Some devices have trouble scanning the smaller code. So Gepeto created a code optimizer as part of his Mekostudio tools.

    To optimize a smaller QR code, go to http://mekostudio.com/customizer and upload your card. Then under the Optimize tab, choose "Optimize the size of the original QR code on the card," then click Generate. This will produce a card with a larger code, making it easier to scan. (Note: This only works with a card image exported by the Mekorama app, using the share button, not a screenshot.)

    I think that anyone who makes a card and sees it is small should regenerate their own code. For me I don't have the time to do it, so unless it looks fantastic, i will just pass on that card.

    I want to post an image (QR code, screenshot, etc.) in my level comment, but it asks for a URL. What do I do?

    You can use an online hosting service, such as imgur, or you can use the Sandbox thread in the forum: Sandbox for images in comments

    To post your image in the sandbox thread, scroll to the bottom to make a new post, enter some text (which could help you find your post later), click "Upload a File," and choose your image file:

    [​IMG]
    You can upload more images, if desired. Then "Post Reply." Your images will be attachments to your post. Then right-click on the image you want to put in your comment, and choose "Copy Link." That URL address can be used to put your image in a comment.

    I have 2 questions:
    1. Why am I not getting "mention notifications" on someone else's level? I always find out through recent comments or when looking at levels.
    2. What certain conditions "watched media" is active? other than tapping it.
    Thank you.

    @Labyrenight Check under "Alert Preferences" and see if "Tags you in a comment" is checked. Yes, you can select "watch media" on a level, and in "Preferences" there are options to automatically watch levels (or albums or categories or threads) that you participate in. If you're still having problems, send me a private message.

    @Papo Mendez "¿Como puedo crear un Album paso a paso?" (How do I create an album, step by step?)

    To create a new album when you add a new level, choose "An album" and "Create an album...":
    album.png


    Or you can move one of your levels to a new album. On the level page, click the move button:
    album1.png
    Then choose "Create an album":

    Muchas gracias, usted siempre tan amable, ahora, debe haber ciertas caracteristicas en los niveles que formen un Album, por ejemplo, el tema, o el tipo de truco que se usen en los niveles que lo formen, o los colores o el tipo de bloques que se usen para la armonia general de la targeta o sencillamente puedo crear un albun por crearlo. cuantos niveles pueden formar parte de un Album? perdone pero no se si se ha hablado ya de esto en el forum, supongo que sí, gracias de antemano.

    @Papo Mendez The albums you create are for your own use, so you can decide how to organize them. You can put as many levels in an album as you like.
