~ HOW TO SUBMIT AN ARTICLE ~

1 post in this topic

The Basics:
The article submissions board is for members to create and submit content for publishing in the news.  When submitting your own content for publishing, please include the following if they apply:


1. Title - The title of the thing you're submitting, as you would like it to appear.  

 

2. Credits - Remember to give credit where credit is due.  If you're using or referencing someone else's material, please make a note of it.


Disclaimer: The News Staff will not edit your submissions.  They will be printed as is.  At most, they may ask for any minor changes they would need in order to publish it, and it's up to you whether or not to make those changes.



Member Created Articles:


The Weekly News will sometimes include content created by forum members and staff, such as reviews, coding tips, funnies etc.  You can create and submit anything you'd like to see in the news, and post in on this board.  There aren't any hard fast rules or formats here, but if you're looking for ideas, there's a list of suggestions for article types below.  The News Staff reviews this board weekly to choose which submissions they want to publish.  And even if your submission doesn't get in, it'll still be in the article submissions thread for anyone to see.  
 

Character Review - Pick your favorite Mugen character, and write a review of them!  How do they play, what do you like about them, what strategies do you use against various opponent types, any bugs glitches, fair / unfair, who coded them, anything else you'd like to see added?

Stage / Life Bars / WIP / etc Review - Same as the character review, just apply it to whatever other content you like.

Release Article - If you're planning a release soon, you could write up a release article to go with it and submit it on the Content Submissions board.

Coding Tips - If you've found some nice work around, or an elegant way to code a particular feature, or if you just have some bit of coding you find particularly useful, we would love to see it.

Funnies - Found some funny ass gifs?  There is a funnies submission thread just for this.  Post them there, and see if they get in. 

Strategy Guide - You could make a strategy guide for a certain character, or a certain group of characters.  e.g.  Batman by Alucard,  Metal Slug vs Normal Sized Chars, Zoners vs Grapplers etc.  

Text Interviews - Feel like interviewing your favorite creator?  Hassle them ruthlessly until they agree, then change their words around and compile what you wanted them to say into an interview and submit it to the news staff for publishing lol!

Video Interviews - Yup, those are possible too.

 

Discussion Article - Some types of threads are better broadcast than others, so try to be tasteful here.  But something like a fantasy role play thread where you might want to draw attention might be worth writing up a short article about with a link included.

 

Series - Consider becoming a regular contributor, either periodically or over the course of a planned series of weekly contributions.  For examples, a 4 week series of strategy guides for characters in a single game, or a series of comics your made, or a regular column.

New Ideas - Let us know if you have an idea for a new suggestion to add to this list!
