A quick bookmarklet for that quick post :slight_smile: - If you are like me and find interesting stories every day and want to make the sharing bit a whole lot easier, here is a tiny bookmarklet that gets the job done! All you have to do is to add it to the bookmark bar and click it when you find interesting stories you want to share to #town-centre:news

javascript:window.location="https://community.gamedev.in/new-topic?title="+window.location+"&category=town%20centre/news"

If you are feeling particularly adventurous, do check out how you can modify the bookmarklet to add content to other categories.
