Review Guildlines.

Postby Failhorse » Mon Jun 04, 2012 12:08 pm

Hello. And thank you for wanting to contribute. You are welcome to write reviews on movies and video games. If you feel like challenging yourself, try some social commentary. If you want to make it here, you better be funny.

Please follow these standards.

1) Excessive use of proper English welcome.
2) No grammar bad.
3) Be witty, concise and refrain from derogatory commentary in the first 400 words.



Please use the following format.

1) Your article should start with a graphic. Sized around 250 wide 200 long.
a) Graphic should make sense, be original, and hosted somewhere that can be used on our main page (http://imgur.com is ideal)
2) Our main page holds apx. 400 words per article. After that, the user must jump to the thread to read the rest of the article.
Consider the first 400 words an introduction. You want them to jump to read the rest.
3) Try to add other images into your review.
4) When reviewing a game. Under the main image include release date, platform, and cost on Steam. (Maybe a link to the sSteam page.) (see this as an example. viewtopic.php?f=57&t=4883)
5) Movies should be similar, Theater release date (or DVD if applicable.) Rating, and link to IMDB.


These are the possible rewards.

1) If it's good you get on the main page.
2) Monthly "free stuff" for those who contribute ---more to come on this...

So should we be reviewing new things as they come out, or are old games welcome?

Old games can be reviewed, and will be applicable towards contests. Unless the review is a glorious piece of literature, it probably won't be featured on the main page.

Can we review albums, or just games and movies?
