    If you have a minor question that can be answered in a post or two and doesn't require a discussion, please ask it here instead of making a thread for it.
    If your post doesn't get an answer, it probably means nobody has one.

    Is there a way to modify a showcase entry awaiting a moderator?
    I can't find any edit button...
    I want to add a couple of explanations and make a modification to my entry.

    EDIT : Seems like the issue was resolved, there is now an edit button!

    I've got a question that shouldn't be too hard to answer:
    I've created a submission for this year's SAGE under the showcase category, as should be and saved it as a draft for later, because I still had to upload the build and everything, but I cannot find the folder where my drafts are stored, nor, when I was editing it last, did I find the option to publish the draft. Could somebody be so kind and help me (and the future poor souls lost in the draft submission process) out with this?

    Edit 1: I have found the solution for both issues. The drafts are saved under "Your Items" in the sidebar you don't pay attention to in the top-right corner, a bit hidden, but understandable once you got the gist of it. As for uploading it, you need to go into a submission draft and set its status to "In Moderation", then it will be shown "publicly" (it should once the staff is done checking it).

    Like the others, I can't find out how to resume editing a booth's draft.
    Maybe the button will magically appear once I post this.
    ...
    Nope, it just lets me edit the tags.

    Hello, @Hyper Emerson, as stated by @MrLevRocks and under the "Save as Draft" option...

    Here's how to edit your drafts: Open the side-menu by pressing the big red button floating in the top right:

    upload_2018-8-18_12-21-28.png

    Under "Showcase" you will see a sub-menu called "Your Items", click it.

    upload_2018-8-18_12-22-1.png

    And finally on the sidebar block on the "Your Items" page you should see your drafts. Click it to edit it.

    Once you are finished, make sure to submit for approval.

    So that's what they meant by the sidebar being a bit hidden. Thanks!

    Edit:
    No, I already knew how to get to the draft's page but there's still no edit button when I get there! Just a button for editing the tags. I guess I'll just delete the draft and start over.

    There's two edit links on the submission page.
    One can be found in the top right under "item tools"

    upload_2018-8-18_7-0-13.png

    and the other is near the bottom.

    Yes, it should, but there's just options for deleting the item and locking comments.
    The page also says I can't post comments on the item, so I think it's an issue of my account having restrictions on it since I've barely posted in the forums.

    @Hyper Emerson there was an issue with some people's accounts including yours but it has been fixed now. You should be able to see the Edit button now.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Yes. There's already a bunch of examples of non Sonic games on the showcase.
