Calling All Guide Authors!
 
Calling Guide Authors!
June 25, 2008 - July 11, 2008

To cut to the chase, we're looking for guides. Many of you have written guides in the past for other communities and unfortunately couldn't salvage them. I've had many questions to whether or not we'll have a VIP group. Yes, and this is one of the ways to get into it**!

How to enter? Write two guides on any topic in any game! Your guides will then be voted upon by the staff and community. The top winner will receive a $20 Cash Shop/PayPal gift from MyMMOGames (we're a bit broke at the moment =[ ) but everyone that writes two guides will be known as a VIP for helping develop the community!

We're looking for more guides than just Trickster Online guides! We're currently featuring 5 MMOs in our Games sections, so be daring! Write a guide outside Trickster Online! (although some TO guides would be good too =) You don't have to stop at 2, the more you write the better your chances of being the top guide and winning the $20 gift!

Want to write a guide but not sure how to? Check my Guide to Guides. It gives you some tips on creating a credible, informational guide that will help your fellow MyMMO'ers!

Also, all guides written are subject to staff approval. Please put some effort into this; writing a BS guide for the sake of entering this event will lead to disqualification. We realize English isn't everyone's first language so this will not be held against you.

**The other way to be a VIP is to help with the wiki and we'll start these promotions very soon

:/

This is going to suck... all my Trickster guides are so outdated D:

NoeJeko 06-25-2008 11:01 AM

That's another reason behind the event - the vast majority of MT guides were outdated due to the revo patch =]

Must we post a link to our guide here ?

NoeJeko 06-25-2008 11:09 AM

Yeah, so we can keep track of who's actually entered the event and it'll make it much easier when we compile it for voting. Collecting all the information from the email event was hell =[

My Eir's Ultimate Guide to PvP

An Introduction to Eir's Choice Stats

The link's also in my signature, but I guess I'll post it up. :p Do we have to make a new post for each guide we create, or can we edit them in?

Oh, and I wrote this PvP guide on May 27, and it was last updated on June 17. Would that count as an entry? Thanks!

EDIT (July 10): OH, GEEZ! LOL, I just realized I had submitted these two guides for the Guide Author thing. I just did some last-minute polishing on both guides that I promised to do long ago. :\ I'm sure it would've taken me less time if I remembered. :D

NoeJeko 06-25-2008 11:21 AM

You can edit them in and guides posted before this event do count. Step you can write a guide on DDR/Stepmania but it's not an MMO guide lol...

WhatThePhuc 06-25-2008 11:23 AM

aaaawwwwww lol...

Kohane 06-25-2008 11:53 AM

I can try to write a guide or two, but sometimes my english spelling and grammar AND such are a bit wrong. :puppy:

AurorasParadox 06-25-2008 11:58 AM

My first guide:

Kudaranai 06-26-2008 09:06 AM

I think newer ones are better :3

BatgirlZKE 06-26-2008 09:19 AM

Here are my guides (so far):

Oops Wharf Key Quest Guide

Ghost Blue Key Quest Guide

Recharge Guide

How to Become a Pharaoh

EVENT: Lycan's Wish

NoeJeko 06-26-2008 09:21 AM

Just a note for this event: Guides submitted must be original works. If your guide is migrated from MT and you're the author, it must be current - i.e. please don't just copy over a closed beta TO guide that hasn't been relevant in a year. =[

Anchors 06-28-2008 10:32 AM

What if it's just one huge guide that covers multiple topics?

I've been writing one for the past three days that is maybe a quarter or a third finished. It is currently 19 pages (although I have to admit that the contents section covers more than a full page on its own) in Word with one-inch margins and covers everything Magic in Trickster except for detailed PvP/GvG strategy and leveling spots.

I don't think I have it in me to write a second one of these. >.>

does it cover AP melee mages?

NoeJeko 06-28-2008 12:22 PM

It's gotta be two. There's no way I can set a criteria that's fair for everyone as to "well this counts as two" and "this only counts as one". If the first one you're writing is massive, your second could be as simple as "how to change screen resolution in Trikcster". I think chickdigger accomplished that in a paragraph or two with a couple screenshots.

WhatThePhuc 06-28-2008 12:27 PM

if it really does take that many pages, there's some ways you can divide it up
into separate categories, or even pages like "Anchor's Guide page 1", etc.
i doubt people would want to go through that many pages to find what they're looking for anyway o.O
eehhhh...maybe you can make each subsection a separate guide

Anchors 06-28-2008 12:41 PM

It does cover melee mages 8D and won't cover just AP.

I'll split it up, then, I guess... It'd probably be a pain to navigate as one huge guide anyway. No idea when it'll be done, though.
