Nice guide! You may also want to put the idea-catalog tag on it. But idk if that really fits or not,

They aren’t really ideas though…
Also, the game-mechanics tag is unused.
(I think most if not all tags in #game-___ are unused.)

Yeah, I removed it

Shdwy’s “guide” isn’t a guide. It’s a brainstorming post that aims to reduce the memory usage on Apollo’s text entry system.

Um, @Blizzy, I was already working on an ultimate guide, but it gives a wording tutorial and a gif or video of how to make it at the end of each guide. Can I edit your guide? I am thinking to change the wording, so anyone making the chat wouldn’t get confused. Thank you!

And not include links to tutorials.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t this be a resources post?

Resources are for people to read and understand, but here is basically just all previous posts linked together.

Oh, I see. So this is different since it’s a chronological compilation of the improvements made over time?

No, that would most likely be wip or wiki, but mostly wip this was made at once, linking other posts, but I think tug would be good.

Is this a tug?

Isn’t this more of a resources page than a tug?

True, this is a resources

this guide is a really kool chat system guide pls add

It is technically there,

I need to change the name of my post back now that I’m TL3… It was actually the earliest chat guide. Also, yeah, this should be resources. (can I change it?)

@ABCD Yes, of course you can edit this!
