Alright then. So the one pending review now is all set unless you need to edit it. The others will be half combined since I see what you are saying about repeating some information. As for pictures I have found two and added them, the site may already have them but for what the articles are about they are the most fitting I could find. Let me know if you need different or smaller pictures though.

Actually it seemed to me like at least in one of your posts you were repeating information within the same post (in different sentences)

It's less of a prob if different posts repeat information, especially depending on context... or if one was a post and one a page for example.

I gave you a headline and a graphic for your first post. Try to fill the post in a good bit more, and add some information about Aeria Games, including their Free to Play business model, and some links to their announcement in the forums. You can use <blockquote> and <cite> to quote some snippets of statements during the period (because the setup for the announcement was so non-traditional. Really we need a lot more body to this article given it's significance. You could also mention some of Aeria's most popular games, as they've never handled Megaten before. Also mention Aeria is calling the game MegaTen. At the time this post should've been written I think there were no plans to refer to it as it's original title (Aeria still uses MegaTen for most of it's publicity, though the full title is found on promotional graphics)

You can make a new post if you want so you can retain your "First Month" post to put in a page. But if this is to be the first post on Imagine it needs more background info.

PS: Ignore the "Retro-posted September 9, 2008" bit. I just stuck that date there to remember it. You don't have to mention it in the article, as that will be the publishing date (the retro date will be the day it's actually published)

Added a little about Aeria but there's a problem. Seems that they've purged some of the early topics relating to what the article would be about. Also in quicking editing I deleted part of the picture link so you might need to fix that,sorry doh

Here is the original announcement/poll. I don't know if it's still available from the forums, but it was the first url matching Aeria Firefox pulled up from my address bar's history biggrin

http://forums.aeriagames.com/viewtopic.php?t=165381

If you think it will be merged, please save some of the pages for us. I think in the future I will make it possible to upload webpage backups to our Media Library as well.

PS: If you need help finding other urls let me know ok.

Looking better...

You could mention this post and the results of the poll:

http://forums.aeriagames.com/viewtopic.php?t=165381

Any final statements at the end of hte poll in quotes.



Perhaps a prior news post should be retro-added about this poll someday. The mission of dddb.com is really more historical than news-breaking, so we'd like to preserve as much info as possible in one place I think.

As for when you lost the image. You can use the Revision tab at the bottom of the page to find anything from old versions of the post.


I'll try to give this post a good looking over soon before publishing, but I want you to try to improve upon it as much as you can in the meantime. I have a feeling the post might be edited a few times after publishing, but we should try to push to get more Imagine stuff up asap sweatdrop

Added info on poll. Seems to be a problem with the picture showing up though and I've no clue how to fix it.

Probably has something to do with your likely using the Visual Editor system. I recommend you learn to work without it rolleyes

Ok, here is what I got for the IMAGINE post....

Again I spent a ridiculous amount of time and edits on the graphic frame, so if this looks cool, I'd like to delete the revisions (which means I might accidentally delete some of your revisions Aren, if I get the query wrong)

Currently it's set to publish in a few days. I don't know if you can edit it or not in that status. I put it in that status actually so you wouldn't try to edit it while I was. At any rate, let me know if this is cool...

Some minor edits will likely follow sweatdrop

Fixed "it's" => its, and fixed the misaligned table in the quote... and some esthetic stuff.
