Thanks for the list. 50 pages is completely unnecessary and should be considered a spam article.
Congrats to the winners. Looking forward to the trivia this year.
Definitely *not* a staff member (though I'm not opposed to the idea either :D), but I have been following the new design pretty closely as the old design made it quite hard to browse and submit stories on a phone.
We should be able to switch to a more classic layout once the beta ends. As you mentioned this is currently geared for mobile users.
And here I thought my odds would improve this month :P
Better late than never, however, as koga mentioned, they are quite late to the party. I can't fault them though, it's clear they focused on the PS4 and Xbox One first, which have larger install bases.
So just to be clear, it isn't necessarily the content (or lack thereof) that is at fault, but the actions of a certain website and it's members when it comes to approving articles?
I didn't think people were still pushing through their articles to game the system so that's disappointing. Even more so when you take into consideration the lack of content for this certain website.
On a side note: I love to put honey in my tea, but no amount of ho...
I've got to admit, that's cute as heck AND it's a proper turn-based RPG...don't mess this up SE!
Personally speaking, I would participate more, but I'm away from my computer so often that I *really* need a better mobile version. I know that don't necessarily have anything to do with the contests, but it's hard to submit stories and comment on the phone ;)
It's one of those announcements that you've been hoping for since the 2005 tech demo. And then last year, that crappy port felt like the nail in the coffin, Square had officially said no to a proper HD remake.
And then...last night, the most glorious of glorious announcements :D Sadly, I doubt we'll see this before 2017, but at least we know it's in development.
Still can't believe it's happening...
As an alternative, I use ZenMate on Chrome and it works great for US (and other) streaming sites.
FUNimation's PS4 app was finally released, which means I finally subscribed to All-Access. I've been binge-watching anime for the past three days and didn't realize until today just how much I've missed watching anime consistently!
Good luck with your future endeavors! You are a great community manager and will be missed!
So am I still OK to submit an article or news and post the link on Twitter/FB/G+? I don't want that to be construed as trying to "game" the system...
Also, when is the redesign coming? I simply cannot use these sites on my phone which has really decreased my time spent on them, sadly.
The time limit is the main reason I can't get into these games. Takes the fun out of it for me, sadly. Which really frustrates me because these games look like they would be a blast otherwise.
Tiebreakers eh? Have to re-watch some anime you say? Tough job, but someone has to do it :P
Congrats to the winners! Looking forward to the awards.
EDIT: holy crap, I won something!
EDIT 2: regarding contests, and really, site visitation over the past few months; my issue really stems from the fact that the newsboiler sites are not very mobile friendly. I know they have mobile links, but it's hit or (usually) miss when it comes to using them. As s...
Is that all that's selling these games nowadays? I've tried at least 2-3 of these and just cannot get into the formula. And it really sucks because I generally love the art direction in these games.
