OK, edited! :) Details are in the edit notes. Did I get it right?

revised Box2D platformer: Why does horizontal movement stop jumping?
More specific title. Fixed some grammar. Moved the most important parts of text to the top, making sure the first sentence is a summary of the overall problem. Moved reference code to its own section. Formatted code for legibility. Added some relevant tags.

comment Box2D platformer: Why does horizontal movement stop jumping?
I'm just trying to help. I'm not the one downvoting, but votes are anonymous anyway. I guess someone was too busy to post a comment with an explanation of why... Do you mind if I help edit to narrow down the question so it's just asking about the jumping problem? (That would make it a lot clearer.)

revised How do I change a LÖVE2D game executable's icon?
More specific title. Rearranged text for better flow and added Windows tag. (Procedure for OS X and Linux are likely to be different and the `.exe` implies Windows was intended.)

comment Digital Tutors supply the programs needed
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a web site's service details, best answered by that site's support team.

comment Digital Tutors supply the programs needed
You mean these guys? Have you asked them? It seems no though; they're training providers, not tool sellers. The tools themselves might have cheap or free licenses for non-profit projects or education, but again, we're not an authoritative source for that.

Have you tried single-stepping through the code with the debugger or adding print statements? There's little we can do to help unless you understand what your code is doing.

comment Building a portfolio in Game Development while pursuing a Masters in Computer Science
In my experience, Computer Science departments always contain people interested in game dev, regardless of whether it's formally taught or whether an organised society exists. As for finding cities with active game dev communities, I see lots of information in a simple Google search. gamedevmap has a queryable database.

Have you tried single-stepping through your code in the debugger to see if it makes sense? Or adding print statements? Or rendering your collision rectangles?

comment Collision Detection Book Recomendation
Metanet Software's collision tutorials neatly cover basic Separating Axis Theorem and some optimisation techniques, while linking to relevant papers.
