Why is it that I cannot seem to make my guide be labeled as a "Full guide" rather than just a build?

I cannot seem to get the guide onto any of the pages for the hero, no matter if I add additional chapters or not.

Some of the guides on here are from like 2011 and are either outdated or kind of bad, yet they are on the main page of the hero and mine isn't even listed at all.

The only way I can find the guide is by searching it and changing the search settings to be build rather than guide, ensuring that NOBODY will see this guide?

Help.

I think you just need to be patient. It typically takes something like half an hour to an hour for new guides to show up on the site.

Also, have you hit the publish button? Just tossing it out there.

I did publish XD It just seems odd that I can't differentiate what makes a guide a "Full Guide" versus just a build guide. If you search you'll see what I mean by filter preferences. Some guides show and others don't on the main page seemingly because of this.

@ChiChi, you can report if you need urgent assistance :^)

@thread

I think the limit is 5000 characters (coding included) in the guide itself. This means that all that is written inside the boxes has to exceed 5000 character limit for it to be considered a full guide :).

Thanks Janitsu! I bumped it up to 5k and its on the main page now! This really should be displayed somewhere because there has got to be tons of guides that go completely unnoticed because they are shy of 5000 characters. Mine was just under 5k..

I can ask Hades if it is possible to show the character limit somewhere :)! Glad I could help you out though.

Hey, this is explained in the "Support" section in this thread.

I'm glad you've fixed your problem though, I'll discuss with the devs to see if we could include the above post somewhere more visible for the newcomers.
