There are three different ways in which games can reach this site.

|Computers required per game||1–4||0–1||0|
|Internet connection||At playing table||At event venue||Somewhere|
|Concept||Game recorders record each rack and play on a form, then (optionally pass it to a second person to) use laptops to enter the data into a special annotation server which posts it to the website immediately. One overall game editor recommended per event.||Game recorders record each rack and play on a form, then relay the information (usually on little slips of paper carried by runners) to a data entry person who enters the moves into a CGI-based game editor.||Game recorders (or possibly the players themselves) prepare a complete record of a game which is entered into Quackle and saved as a .gcg file for upload to the website.|

Because many game-related pages are dynamically generated and purged when stale, you should be careful when offering links to pages. In general, links to specific turns should include the word “postgcg” and not end in “.html”. You may have to go to the preceding turn and right- or control-click a link to get the right web address. The main page for each game (the one that gives the “Play Game” link) is always safe to give out.
