Hi and welcome to the GWOnline News forum!
The news forum is a place to post and discuss news related to Guild Wars 2 only (Pure Guild Wars 1 news goes into the Guild Wars 1 General Discussion forum). More general discussion about new stuff happening in the game should be kept in the general discussion forum.
Of course, news can come in all shapes and forms. To make it easier to navigate we have therefore set up a few basic rules:
You can post news from either professional media outlets, official ArenaNet news or community generated content such as blogs. The only criteria are that the news are NEW (to us here) and RELEVANT. I will use my discretion when approving. Sometimes a new thread is not needed if it is only a small thing, maybe it can be added to an existing news item. This is particularly true for the large convention collection threads.
Some reccurring content, like weekly podcasts, have a dedicated collection thread. If you have news from these outlets, please post in the collection thread in stead of creating a new thread. As of today, the collection threads are:
[G4] MMO Reports featuring GW2
[Gamebreaker.tv] Guildcast collection thread
[GWI] Podcast collection thread
[Massively] Flameseeker chronicles
[Tales of Tyria] Videocast collection thread
[Talk Tyria] Collection thread
[Vidthru.com] Guild Wars 2 Info Update
In addition, large conventions will also get a collection thread. (Pax 2011, Gamescom 2011 etc)
If you want to suggest a new collection thread, please send me a PM.
Each new thread title MUST start with the source within brackets at the start.
Example: [Incgamers] Awesome interview with ANet devs
If a source has a common acronym, please use that in stead of the full name, otherwise please use the full name for clarity.
[ANet] ArenaNet (duh)
[GW2PvP] GuildWars2 PvP
[GWI] Guild Wars Insider
[KTR] Kill Ten Rats
[Tap] Tap Repeatedly
[TTH] Ten Ton Hammer
[TWIMMO] This Week In MMOs
If you want to add an acronym to the list, please send me a PM.
That was all, enjoy your stay.
