The Comment You're Replying To

On the bright side, at least any given preset index page allows for Comments to be posted about the preset in question, so the preset index page does not strictly only serve just to give a link to the preset itself. Such Comments might be best reserved for discussing such issues as the quality of the preset graphics, normally, however.

I have noticed in the past that many preset index pages on CVP that exist already do not have a matching rules page. Many of the authors of such unmatched preset index pages would currently or possibly even forevermore be unavailable to make a matching game page (unless someone else authored one). In such cases, game rules are often, but not always, provided on the preset index pages. When the rules are not, I myself have always thought of going to the minor trouble of clicking on the preset link from the preset index page (to see if rules are offered with the preset itself), though some people may fear they are committing themselves to playing, maybe?! Anyway, almost always game rules have been on the preset in question, but I would otherwise have no idea what the rules are in cases when no such rules are provided on the preset itself.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>
