If you go to [thing=28531][/thing] it looks like the description field is empty. Clicking Edit reveals there is a wiki text, but neither previewing nor re-saving will make it show up. There are no obvious special characters that would cause chaos and confusion. Halp.

Re: Game description not showing up
That is weird. I tried editing the game description and it is exactly as you described.

I tried editing by copying the description to a text editor, deleting the entire text and pasting back from my text editor. Same result. No preview. soblue

Re: Game description not showing up
The leading spaces before the individual entries were preventing the description from displaying; I don't know why that should be, but it was what was happening.

I narrowed the problem down to the Kadesh line, confirmed it in other lines beginning with leading spaces, and deleted all leading spaces to fix the problem.

Thanks. Weird that some spaces in a list would blank out the whole thing.

Re: Game description not showing up (fixed)
I had this problem last week with two new RPGG submissions
the items were edited by a user and the problem seemed to go away
I didn't bother making an issue of it
