Three days ago I wrote my first blog post. It's a post about a module for the magic system, that I think is interesting. It's nothing exceptional, but since I spent some time to write it, and since I intend to add more posts in the blog, I'd like to be visible to the community.


I did something wrong?


In the Entry Status field, I can select between:
- friends
- private
- draft


I have to select one of this in particular?
I'm so confused Undecided

I'd select friends then add a link to it in your signature, look at the top left for a link to 'preferences'...

1-4E play style
The 4E play style is a high action cinematic style of play where characters worry less about being killed in one hit and more about strategy and what their next move is and the one after it. The players talk back and forth about planning a battle and who can do what to influence the outcome. 4E play is filled with cinematic over the top action. An Eladrin teleports out of the grip of the Ogre. The Fighter slams the dragons foot with his hammer causing it to rear up and stagger back in pain. The Cleric creates a holy zone where their allies weapons are guided to their targets and whenever an enemy dies the Clerics allies are healed. 4E is about knowing when to lauch your nova attack, whether its a huge arcane spell that causes enemies to whirl around in a chaotic storm, or if its a trained adrenaline surge that causes you to attack many many times with two weapons on a single target, or a surge of adrenaline that keeps you going though you should already be dead. Its about tactics and the inability to carry around a bag of potions or a few wands and never have to worry about healing. Its about the guy that can barely role play having the same chance to convince the king to aid the group as the guy that takes improv acting classes and regularly stars as an extra on movies.
Stormwind Fallacy
The Stormwind Fallacy, aka the Roleplayer vs Rollplayer Fallacy Just because one optimizes his characters mechanically does not mean that they cannot also roleplay, and vice versa. Corollary: Doing one in a game does not preclude, nor infringe upon, the ability to do the other in the same game. Generalization 1: One is not automatically a worse role player if he optimizes, and vice versa. Generalization 2: A non-optimized character is not automatically role played better than an optimized one, and vice versa. ...[aside]... Proof: These two elements rely on different aspects of a player's game play. Optimization factors in to how well one understands the rules and handles synergies to produce a very effective end result. Role playing deals with how well a player can act in character and behave as if he was someone else. A person can act while understanding the rules, and can build something powerful while still handling an effective character. There is nothing in the game -- mechanical or otherwise -- restricting one if you participate in the other. Claiming that an optimizer cannot role play (or is participating in a play style that isn't supportive of role playing) because he is an optimizer, or vice versa, is committing the Stormwind Fallacy.
The spells we should getLook here to Check out my adventures and ideas. I've started a blog, about video games, table top role playing games, programming, and many other things its called Kel and Lok Games. My 4E Fantasy Grounds game is currently full.
Howdy folks,

I have moved this thread to Community Business where it is more on-topic.

Thanks.

You should be able to select "public".

CLick on "HOME" at the top of the page.
On the right, click on "Blogs"
Then click on "Manage Blogs"
You should see the blog post you wrote.
CLick on "Edit"
Then check to see if it is "public".  If it isn't make it public.
Then click "Submit Post"
Let me know you did it and maybe post a link here so I can check it.

Mmhh... very strange.


In the Menage Posts page
[Home (top left) -> Blog (left column) -> Menage Blog Posts],
I can see my post and, in the Status column, is written "Published".



However, it doesn't appear on the Browse Blogs page, even if I search its title by using the Blog Search field.


To be clear, the Browse Blogs page is this one:
community.wizards.com/go/browse/blogs
where I suppose are listed new blog posts (maybe it's not so, and I'm just wasting my and your time :D)

When I edit the post, I can't select or click "public". The only options selectable from the Entry Status are "friends", "private", "draft"




Note: I'm using Google Chrome as browser.

Nobody can help me?


There is no way to appear in the Blog Posts list? 

Frown

EDIT: When I submit the post, i get this error:


Sorry, there was a problem.

It means something? 

That's been happening recently to me too, but I don't think it's related to your problem.  I think your problem is that you have privacy settings set to be too private.  Change your privacy settings so that people your profile is public.  Then see if you can edit the blog post to be public.  If that doesn't work, contact Customer Service.  There's a link at the bottom of every page.
thank you very much wrecan, I solved it. May I offer you a beer? Cool
The blog error you were experiencing was happening to a number of folks (including me).  We had some of our top people look into it and it should be resolved.

Let us know if you experience any other errors.

Thanks.
