§24.8. Help from the user community

Sometimes we get really stuck on a problem and despite all our best efforts cannot figure out how to solve it.

Fortunately, Inform has a lively and helpful community of users who are often willing to assist other authors. The easiest way to reach these users is to make a post at the intfiction forum at

and in particular to post Inform-related problems under the topic Inform 7 Development. Where possible, it's a good idea to post the example source that is causing trouble, and to make it as short as possible so that prospective helpers will not have to read any more than necessary in order to pinpoint the problem.

The user community is also a good place to find beta-testers who can try out our work and give feedback.
