Hello. This is pipking, acting independantly of the Team of Writers but doing this for the benefit of all.
Just wanted to get a sense of how the community feels about our ongoing column.
What would you like to see in upcoming issues? Choose from the options above or write your own. You can choose more than one option, but to anyone thinking of getting click-happy, we'll all know who you are and smoting's in season.
More general articles would be nice... if only because we would have a wider pool of stuff to write about
Regular scheduals? Deadlines? No no no, heck no
In all seriousness though, I think that what would improve our articles the most is to ground them ina bit more reality. All of the recent ones, all of the articles period as far as I can remember, deal with the more abstract portions of the games. Atmospheres, meanings... and oftentimes these things are exaggerated or filled with overly flowery language. That's all well and good in small amounts, but we have a glut of articles like these.
I rarely ever read the BtR articles, and I don't really care nor like BtR too much, but I guess my vote poses as a plea for - what is in my eyes - improvement. I don't know, BtR confuses me sometimes.
Start by saying why you don't read BtR - what turns you off about it? I don't think you're alone. There's probably a whole host of people who might be interested in the column but aren't ever really inspired by what they read.
Someone like you is the ideal person to be writing in this thread, so please take the time to answer as completely as possible.
And l-o-s: you're right about the more 'ethereal' articles; sometimes they come off wishy-washy. I have a project that, funds willing, will help me in that regard, but I'll keep it a secret from the public until I have a better grip on things.
Well,I LOVE BtR.I frakly don't see a problem with the section,and think you guys are doing an astounding job.But more specific articles would be nice.As well as more humor.And I don't blame the Team of Writers for taking so long to write an article.
