Do you think XPG needs more than 1 or 2 editor?

  1. YES!

    18.2%
  2. NO!

    81.8%

Whats the point of having the same news 2/3 times?? Why not have just 1 or 2 editors on XPG?

    First of all i dont mean to offend anybody with this post .. Just my opinion!

    So lately everybody decided to post gaming news/previews/reviews and stuff like! I feel like its kinda annoying to see the same stuff over and over again, and most of it being just copy paste, and old stuff .. And why is that? Everybody wants the Editor tittle!

    I think thats a step back on XPG, and maybe im gonna get hated/flamed for this but i think only the EDITORS should be allowed to post this kind of stuff .. Because they will post the news with their own words not just copy/paste, Bullet once said that if XPG wanted copy/paste news they would just get rss feed from other websites ..

    IMO quality > quantity .. and right now XPG have quantity without quality ..

    SO HATE or LOVE me but i think this could be improved!

    I agree with that. People just make the same news everytime.. would be better if we had only 2-3 editors like you said. Anyways, I 100% agree.

    I feel this was directed at me in a minor way, but dont worry im not posting news too much, i just posted a couple things to try and contribute something because i feel like a sponge sometimes, but i guess i wont bother now, i didn't realise some of the things i posted had already been put up, and for that i apologize.

    I try to skim through the last day of posted news and if I don't see anything, like what I am about to post, I post it.

    Personally I think Rocky & Starz covers it enough. Don't see a need for anymore. It's beginning to get annoying seeing the SB filled with "news". Especially when it's the same stuff over & over. C&Ping & spamming "news" just to get a different colored username...
    Like you said, quality over quantity. I'm not sure how the Editor thing works but maybe make it an Editorial Team. Then members of said team could work together & post quality news & topics instead of spamming.

    I think all members should have a fair shot at becoming an editor , but what really should happen is anyone wanting to post news articles should chat with those that are already editors and agree to search/use news from different sites to help avoid the exact same news being posted multiple times.

    however keep in mind that similar topics are OK, as long as not in massive excess, some may find the same news from different sources, so it will be worded differently, or show an alternate side of the story. What should not happen is have 10 people posting the exact C&P from the same news source.

    and I believe that in general if a news topic is posted , the poster should throw in their opinion or a statement or 2 at the end of the article, this will help start the conversation along.

    i think there's no point of having 10 similar news from 10 different sources if at the end they all talk about the same piece of dlc or demo .. And I understand that everybody deserves a chance but all I've been seen lately is people copy pasting .. Some stuff can't even be read because whoever posted forgot to change the font and its too small, etc .. But like I said .. I'm just giving my opinion ..

    got to say i have seen a hell of alot of copy & pasted "news" threads the past week,most of it being outdated and done poorly,like straight ripped from another site,if you want to try to become editor at least be abit imaginative in your posts and make it so its not a straight C&P from another site ;)

    Editors can try to even contact the source (for example: the guy making Earth in Minecraft) and make a new story (different words, questions, etc) I know that this can be difficult but XPG is quality in everything, why not news?

    But if that is too difficult, they could at least rewrite/rephrase/reword the story.

    A lot of my Previews/News is Copied and Pasted but I do try to make it different by setting my Topics out different, I do try and look for better Images etc.

    But what I've found since XxStarzxX did his Editor Tutorial is and I'm not having a go at him we have had an influx of the same stuff some way out dated, Most stuff posted in the wrong section aswell.

    Like what Begal said I already thought about doing that in my topics by adding my response in at the bottom, But alot of what I post I'm not intrested in, But I do post is what I do for XPG.
