I’m just trying to figure out why you were reporting the posts. Thanks

Admin

itchio doesn’t allow developers to add JavaScript to their pages & posts for security reasons (eg. script tag). For embedding Steam pages we recommend that developers use the official iframe embed code provided by Steam.

Admin

Why do you keep reporting comments that you reply to? If you report a comment as spam it notifies itchio staff. Typically spam means unsolicited advertisements. Maybe there’s a misunderstanding? Thanks

this is NOT roblox 2

Closing this topic, since it’s a duplicate of a discussion we just had, and doesn’t add anything new. Please take a moment to scan the community before making a new topic.

Also, keep in mind, from the rules:

When you post here you are asking the community to help you, this is not a direct line of communication to site admins (that is support).

Thanks

Information about the tax interview process is shown directly on your account settings Tax interview page and on our guide here: https://itch.io/docs/creators/payments#tax-interview

Before your account is eligible to receive earnings through a payout, your tax information must be validated. Validation will take place after you open your first payout request. This means you can start selling before your information is validated, but you can not collect any earnings until validation succeeds…

Do not post in other people’s topics if your issue is not relevant.

nice try dude

This page was bugged and we just pushed out a fix that should help solve the issue.

Long story short: Devlogs were indexed, but they were not being marked with the correct category so they weren’t appearing here. We may continue to make some changes to this page, but it should be showing fresh content again.

Admin (1 edit)

Please check our guide here: https://itch.io/docs/creators/payments#tax-interview and also review the Tax Interview page on you account settings since I believe it explains in more detail about the status of your interview.

Lastly, we ask that you read and follow the rules of this board before posting:

Use a descriptive title so others with similar issues or questions may find an answer. Titles like Help me!,

The “Most Recent” tab on the games browse page has a substantially smaller impact than you think. You can review your analytics to your project to looks for “/newest” in the URL to see if you are getting any traffic from those pages. Based on our analysis of our analytics globally, those pages do not generate substantial traffic to specific pages because too many projects are published regularly. So, just so every reader is clear: Do not depend on the “Most Recent” page as a place for your game to get discovered, as it will be seen by very few people there. Instead, focus on building your audience.

Ok but that does not seam to always be the case there are games that…

There are other factors that may contribute to how pages show up on Most Recent, and how they are considered for our internal popularity ranking. Unfortunately we do not share the specifics of how these work, since we want to discourage people trying to “game” the system. This is part of the reason why any sort of “bump” that may take place is never directly in your control, and we want to discourage developers from counting on things like that. Long term it’s better to work on expanding your audience using the all the tools available to you. We do not want developers to have the misconception that some human reviewer is responsible for the success of their project, that is just not the nature of how the system works.

I see that many devs are making new project with every update

This is not something we recommend. If we believe they are creating multiple pages to get a boost in popularity then their account may be penalized. Do not try to cheat the system.

I to note a few things specific to your page:

  1. If we were doing curation on your blog post, we would not consider it something for promotion. Your blog post is mostly empty with just links to a Patreon page. Saying it’s version 0.1 to 0.2 is meaningless to anyone who is looking at the page who has no pre-existing knowledge. The goal of our devlog curation was to encourage the creation of high quality posts, but yours would not fulfill our requirements for that
  2. Your page currently uses external links for files. Although it may not impact things now, we strongly encourage you to host your game on itchio. That we we can guarantee you actually have provided a functional game, and scan it for viruses. In the future we may consider then in our ranking algorithm, but we will put out a notice about it.

Hope that helps

You will have to wait for our support team to respond to your request. From what I can see someone on our team handled it, so I’m going to close this thread.

Projects do not go to the top of most recent for posting a devlog. Generally, most recent is going to have games that have been recently published. (There was a time we experimented with how existing projects may appear in there via “curator approval”, but at the moment we have shifted focus away from that since it creates a bad incentive for developers, encouraging them to chase the wrong thing to grow their audience. We may continue to experiment with how things are sorted on that page, but there is no guarantee that by posting a devlog you will be put on top of this page.)

Due to the large amount of content that goes through “Most Recent” on a daily basis, we do not recommend building your game’s marketing strategy around it. Instead we recommend building an audience through all of your channels, and using updates to bring those people back. Devlogs can have a positive impact on your project’s ranking through secondary metrics that may be increased due to publishing a devlog.

You can use a devlog to get new eyes on your project through people who discover content through the devlogs pages. Additionally it may trigger notifications for existing followers which can help get more eyes on your page.

Hope that helps

We don’t handle account specific issues on our community support forum.

Please check the follow up in your email to get the issue resolved.

For anyone else that may come across this topic: The most common reason for a payout being blocked from being sent is that your account’s tax information is invalid. You can check the status of your tax information on your account settings under “Tax information.

Please be mindful of what jams you submit to, or you account may be limited from participating in jams.

https://itch.io/docs/creators/quality-guidelines#game-jams/do-not-add-your-game-to-unrelated-jams-for-promotion

You’ve submitted to a large number of jams, which is something we typically only see those who are spamming their game. Could you please take a moment to review all the jams you’ve submitted to, and remove your page if it’s not a good fit for the jam. Please reply to my comment to confirm once you’ve done this.

Thanks

You selected the widget tab, not the embed tab. For browser based games there is a separate tab for embedding the game.

Based on looking at your link it looks like you were able to figure out the issue though. If you could update the topic with your solution to help others in the future that would be greatly appreciated.

Admin

Please update your topic title to something more descriptive.

From the rules:

Use a descriptive title so others with similar issues or questions may find an answer. Titles like Help me!, Support not responding, Payouts are BROKEN, hello, etc. are not allowed. We may immediately close your topic. When you post here you are asking the community to help you, this is not a direct line of communication to site admins (that is support). Create your topic in a way that will enable others who are have a similar question to find your topic.

Admin

As mentioned above, please use support to message us regarding account specific payout issues. This is the public community support forum.

Thanks

Please stop spamming other people’s pages. Don’t post the same message repeatedly hundreds of game pages.

If you’re unable to use the comment system to leave specific and constructive feedback then your posting ability will be limited across the whole site.

Thanks for understanding
