How do I submit a hold to the hold database: http://forum.caravelgames.com/holds.php? Will I have to post it to the Architecture forum first? I just want some clarification, that's all.

My hold is almost done. It's simple and focused on puzzles. Can't wait to post about it!

Yes you can post it on Architecture and there will be a button to promote it when you're ready. Then the Hold Administrators will review it before it is released.

(Those with CaravelNet also get beta boards that they can use, which lets them limit the testers and view demos)

Alright, that's great. I was worried I had no control about when the hold would be ready for release. I don't have CaravelNet membership though, so I will be using the forum only I think.

Want to submit a hold to the Holds board? Please read this, it should hopefully answer most of any questions you may have.

Just in case you didn't have a chance to follow the link or only glanced at it, one of the most important takeaways is this:

Please leave your hold on the architecture board for a while before submitting it Hold Administrators so that people will have a chance to beta test it for you.

This will absolutely improve the overall quality of your hold. You don't have to make any changes based on beta tester's recommendations, but they will almost always catch things you didn't (unintended solutions, typos, etc.) no matter how meticulous you've been in testing your own hold. Congrats by the way on putting a hold together that's mostly complete and ready for beta testing!
