News posting has now been opened up to anyone with an account on our forums, much in the style of how things are done at EvilAvatar.
No, we've not gone crazy - we'd just like to give our members the opportunity to post about news relating to one of the games we cover or strategy gaming in general.
What you need to do:
If you've got a news article that you think should be posted on our site, head on over to the relevant news forum (there's one in the StrategyCore section, and one in each of the Games sections as well).
Take a moment to read the guidelines in the topic pinned at the top of the news forum. If you're still unsure as to how to lay out a news topic, take a look at some of the others that have already been posted for inspiration.
Once you've read that, post a new topic as you normally would. Remember to follow the guidelines and, once you're done, post it.
What we do:
Your topic won't appear immediately - it will be put into a moderation queue for a member of staff to check it through before we make it "live" on the site. We may tweak it here and there, or add some screenshots if we think it'll enhance the article, but it'll still be your article with your name at the top.
Please don't be offended if we get in touch with you and ask that you make alterations - we just have to thoroughly check things before they appear on the homepage of the site. We won't get in touch unless it's absolutely neccessary, and if you've followed the guidelines then you should be alright.
Above all, don't let any of the above put you off. It's a quick and painless process, gets your name on our homepage and helps us out along the way.
