    Workaround for the broken journal links

    Just in case you haven’t figured this out already:

    If you want to see the journal for a game’s author from the entry’s page, it isn’t working atm. A quick workaround (after clicking the link) is to copy or write the author’s name after a “=” just at the end of the adress bar of your browser. This would look like this:

    Before:

    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/category/ld-22/?author_name

    After:

    http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/category/ld-22/?author_name=tcstyle

    I’m doing this a lot actually to make my mind about the community rating for games I rate. So go rate many of all these wonderful games!

      I noticed this too, lets pray to SoS or PoV so they can fix it :)

      It’s been bugged since the last compo; I noticed it during the Horror miniLD. =(

      How do you find an author’s username from their display name, though? For example, this entry’s from “Peter Cooper”, but that isn’t his username:

      Ah. I forgot that case. There was a workaround as well. Iirc the search can help.
