To the person who unlisted my tutorial.
AJDevelopment (68)

Why do I deserve this. I just wrote a tutorial and mentioned MS Paint as a tool since I thought GIMP for Linux wasn't a great example and I didn't know Paintbrush for Mac OS existed. And I was trying to post my tutorial in short time
so I could turn off my laptop to charge.

And the reason I knew how to make a placeholder is because that's the process I mainly use for placeholder image/texture generation, until I either design it myself or find a good texture.

So please un-unlist my tutorial.

@AJDevelopment Hi,
It's just normal dude.
I got my 3-4 tutorials unlisted too :(
The mods like (@CodeLongAndPros and many others) will make it unlisted when they realize that the post can be considered as Low-Effort or Copy or on etc things.
That's it.

But at least you can see it from any notification you receive from that post you can comment me the link here.
Thanks!

Hope this helps

@AJDevelopment Yes, this can be considered as Low-Effort post.

Probably because it is deemed as low-effort

@Coder100 it takes 5 minutes to make a placeholder graphic so it's pretty short

AJDevelopment (68)

@Coder100 its just drawing a box and putting text in it most game developers use that technique

Coder100 (10534)

where is your tutorial anyways @AJDevelopment

Coder100 (10534)

tutorials should be at least a 3 minute read for even the fastest skimmers, I read that in 5 seconds @AJDevelopment

hi, if you want to link your tutorial, I can look at it and see if it should be relisted.

@CodingCactus i get a 404 error when i try to view it

CodingCactus (3087)

well if you are getting 404 then you might have the link wrong.

CodingCactus (3087)

@AJDevelopment no it isn't, there should be a number after the name

CodingCactus (3087)

@AJDevelopment yeah like I said, it was low effort and I don't really understand what it is on about tbh

@CodingCactus it's how to make placeholder graphics for game development or other purposes
