Google Docs – this is a test only. What could possibly go wrong? :)

Bart suggested I can use a google-doc so anyone can edit it. I s’pose I had better go with the flow to avoid howls of “Spider GM is SUS”.

Here is an embed link for a word document. Please bear in mind I am learning Google Docs for the first time, on top of attempting to mash up Among Us (App Store, not BoardGameGeek) with Spider Solitaire for the first time. At the risk of quoting someone else’s famous last words, what could possibly go wrong? 😊

While I’m here, I may as well test if I can successfully repeat this for an Excel spreadsheet:

Please let me know if this test is successful, i.e. (1) Can you access these documents (2) Can you edit these successfully.

  1. I can’t seem to make any changes. I think you have to explicitly share the documents with us, one by one.

    From the web:

    “Share with specific people:
    Select the file you want to share.
    Click Share or Share .
    Under “Share with people and groups,” enter the email address you want to share with.”

    bart.wright@comcast.net <—— Here's one.

    "To change what people can do to your doc, on the right, click the Down arrow. …
    Choose to notify people. …
    Click Share or Send."

  2. Oops, I knew I forgot something. Hopefully it’s sorted out now.

    Unfortunately when I try to give access to Schistocerca Americana I get a warning saying I am sending an invitation to *********@hotmail.com. Since there is no Google account associated with this email address, anyone holding this invitation will have access without signing in (which I would not be comfortable with). Does SA have another address?

    1. Groan. I have 3 different google accounts for different purposes, and another (secret) identity is usually logged in, so needing to log in and out of Google accounts is going to be a nuisance.

      “Since there is no Google account associated with this email address, anyone holding this invitation will have access without signing in (which I would not be comfortable with).”

      Do we really care if some other party comes in and hacks a document about Spider Solitaire? Seems pretty unlikely. But there ought to be a better way. The WordPress thing was clunky from the very start. “blogger.com” had a reasonable platform, last I knew…
