ggFTW Contributor Awards Program
Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the launch of our new ggFTW Contributor Awards program! As many of you know, we're building out our games database to become more competitive in the MMORPG list arena. To do this, we need to augment our games pages with guides and reviews.

In the past, we ran a compensation-based system for reviews that failed because the administrative burden was too high and PayPal cost too much to deal in small transactions. We've created a simpler, easier-to-manage system that recognizes members for contributing to ggFTW in terms of guides and game reviews!

How to Participate:

It's simple -- either write a guide or a review for a game in our MMORPG Games Database. Yes, you can use a guide you've already written in our forums provided it's current and accurate. For reviews, please ensure you include a 1-10 rating for the game as review ratings will now count 3x the value of normal "click-to-rate" ratings. Reviews should be limited to around 500 words. I'm not going to put a cap on guides but please remember readability when submitting your guide. If it's too long people won't read it!

For reviews, submit your review via e-mail to contact [at] gavist [dot] com. For guides, either submit as reviews or e-mail us a link to your forum thread. If you use images, please include the full-size image as an attachment as well. We can't pull images easily from a word document!

What you get:

You'll receive 10 points for every review or guide submitted. If you're the first to submit a review or a guide for a game, you'll receive 30 points for that submission! The points will translate to a contributor level:

100 points:

250 Points:

500 points:

1000 points:

Members attaining ggFTW Legend status will receive a permanent premium subscription to ggFTW. This mean no banner ads for you - ever (and other cool things we may add to Premium in the future).

The awards will display in a unique area of the forum postbit:

We look forward to seeing your guides and reviews! Please ensure your guides and reviews are your original work. Plagiarism is unethical and at best case will result in removal of your guide or review and revocation of points. At worst case it could lead to a ban :(

If you don't see us adding your guide or review immediately don't worry -- we're working out some changes to the games database to allow game info pages to display the guides and reviews and account for ratings and points.

brb writing mabinogi review

i guess all the game hopping I did comes in handy now

Joey 02-11-2011 12:06 PM

Already submitted my old Mabinogi G2 guide, will write up a bunch of reviews ASAP.

NoeJeko 02-11-2011 12:29 PM

Just make sure the reviews/guides are quality. I don't expect this to apply to either of you lol bit some people may try to submit one-liners or junk reviews. We still have to accept them :)

Kotarou 02-13-2011 02:09 AM

I believe in you, Glar!

Hiratori 02-13-2011 02:11 AM

Oh, this looks neat. 8D

Another bar to try and work far. /shot

ArturiaPendragon 02-13-2011 06:13 AM

Didn't I submit a LaTale review 100 months ago? =D...

I wonder what happened to it...

Oh I see... :py54:

I think I wrote a couple reviews forever ago.

Ayumi 02-17-2011 11:11 AM

Anyone surpassing 1000 points honestly deserve that sexy bar.

Xpecial 02-17-2011 12:17 PM

Rather than a flat amount of points, wouldn't it be more advantageous for you guys and the authors if you were given say, 5-20 points depending on quality?

Kotarou 02-18-2011 11:52 PM

We want MORE articles/reviews! FEED THEM TO US!

Kotarou 03-04-2011 10:00 PM

I would like to extend a very hearty congratulations to Hekutaa for becoming the first person to gain the Pro level!


We want more reviews and guides! Keep them coming, people!

Yuki 03-04-2011 10:08 PM

Congrats! Keep up the good work contributors! :]
