Re: [KDP] Converting for kindle.

David, I believe the post above yours is spam (it doesn't seem to have anything to do with ebooks), but it's not overt enough for me to delete it. But it resurrected a rather old thread for no reason. :)

Re: [spam] how to deal

Ahh, the irony of a spam post on a thread about how to deal with spam. I just deleted a post on this thread about essay writing services (and banned the poster - I'd warned him a couple days ago for the same type of post on another thread).

Re: [Smashwords] What happened?

I have the link to this forum in my sig block on other forums. I just don't say anything about it being spam-free, so maybe that's why it doesn't seem to get modded. I just use the name of the forum as the link text, below my regular sig block.

Re: [CS] CreateSpace - Barcodes

Is there a similar one in the USA that I can join so that I no longer have to pay IS setup fees? Do you know? Yep, http://www.ibpa-online.org/.

And that's usually about the same time (early afternoon for me) when it does appear. Fortunately, it's not every day.

Re: [spam] how to deal

Not likely. A couple I banned. If the ones I didn't ban post anything overtly spammy, they'll be gone too.

Re: [KDP] Converting for kindle.

Does the MOBI format not support TABS?
No. Mobi and ePub are based on HTML, which doesn't recognize tabs. If your source file (your original manuscript) is in something like MS Word, you must use paragraph styles to define such things as indents.

Re: [CreateSpace] Mods

Yeah, and I wrote a long, helpful reply to a post, and had it moderated. My further (short) reply to the same thread went through fine. There doesn't seem to be any logic.
