Nope - everything after the ? gets eaten by BGG, so that link won't work. You need to use a link shortener, like:

I'm more offended by the transcriptions and lack of research than the actual words, tbh. (Though that will change if you have racial epitaphs in there that you just aren't showing to avoid KS's rules). I would suggest having these looked over by native speakers, as they kind of just look like you threw things into googl translate and took the responses at face value.

e.g.
One of the Bengali examples actually translates to "I eat shit." (how is that an insult?) And you've used a transliteration of the English sound "sh-i-t" (শিট) rather than the actual Bengali word for poop (মল - mala). That's like saying the Japanese word for "stupid" is スチューピッド (sutiyupido).

Maybe the point is to be offensively poorly researched?

It’s a goddamn Uno ripoff with fucking profanity on every bloody card, piss-poor translations, and a shitty campaign page with assloads of images.

Hey, Thanks for taking the time to look at my page. You are right that some of the languages need a bit more work. I have planned in the budget to have the languages for which I do not know any native speakers to be looked over professionally. I will update the Bengali on the page. I have done a lot more than just the Google translate research for all of the words and the final game will be 100% correct.

I want to state for the record that Offend The World is significantly different to Uno.

The whole idea of the game is to have the profanity on every card so glad you picked up on that, trying to say them is a lot of fun.

Would you prefer a campaign page to have a lot more text on it? I always thought images were the best way to get the product across well? Which bits don't you like?

Lots of images showing off the product is good, but text describing it works better as text instead of as part of an image because text loads faster, is searchable, and can be resized or read by screen-reading software.

Thanks. That makes a lot of sense. I will look at texting out some of the sections and see how it looks.
