I think this articular article could use some clean-up.

Firstly, there are stray h2 closing tags scattered throughout the article that should either be removed or preferably paired with opening tags to achieve the desired formatting.

Secondly, the introduction proudly states that Game Maker: Studio is free, which I would consider to be misleading. There is a free version of the software which is still quite capable, but that version has a few limitations and is notably unable to deploy to the majority of target platforms supported by the software; the full package with all exporters is not particularly cheap.

Beyond that I haven’t looked over the actual content of the article for correctness, but at a quick glance, assuming the information is correct it looks like it may be a passable walk-through of how to create a very simple game with the software.

Looks like I didn’t save my comment when I voted it down. Essentially it was what jbadams said. 🙂 You still have a couple of dangling closing h2 tags.
Well, I put in the time to get it cleaned up but it’s back to just regular bold headings. I’m not sure how that happened because when I last looked at it when it was published it looked fine.

If you are using <p></p> anywhere take them out. You don’t need them and they will cause the rest of the tags to break

yea when I click to edit I see <p> right at the start – so you’re saying you aren’t putting them there yourself? Are you taking the text out of the editor to use your own and pasting it back in?

A nice article,
I suggest adding images since beginners would probably seek help with the program.

That might explain the formatting problems you had.
