View Full Version : How do I make a double post not merge?
November 21st, 2010, 12:49 PM
I have a legitimate reason to not want a double post to merge: I'm making a game, and I'll need the space to display player data. But the forum won't let me; it keeps merging my second post into the first. Is there a way to make it not merge?

I think the only way to avoid this is that you need to wait for a length of time between posts so that they won't be merged. How ever long that length of time is, I'm not completely sure. But waiting a few minutes between posts was the only way that I discovered to keep posts from merging.
As I said, that's the only way I know how. It works, but it isn't that convenient (since you have to really hope that someone doesn't post while you're waiting). Hopefully there's another simple solution that has been overlooked that someone else knows.

Well, you typically DON'T.
Unless you're in a section where double posts are allowed.

Well, you're making a game, so first thing's first, you need your game to be approved. Keep everything that you want in the thread in the first post, because thread approval won't happen with half the content missing. Once it's approved, you can send me a PM with the content that you'd like to be arranged into a second post, which should be something straight from the original post you submit, and I'd be more than happy to make that happen for you.
I'll just take what you want from the original post, copy the post, and delete the excess.

No Pachy there's not enough emphasis on don't! You need size 7 font if you really want to get your point across!
Just ask the moderator of whatever section you're referring to if they can help you out, they'll let you know if you can do that and how to do it most likely.
@Patchisou; or you can do that!
