    Hello XPG, today i will be making a tutorial on how to become a Editor.​

    First of all i would like tell you all that it is not hard to become Editor and it is very basic. You don't need to write all the information down in your own words, you can get the news from other places and just put the source of the information at the bottom of the topic. You can always ask other Editors where to get the news from and they will happily send you to the right places.

    How to become a Editor?

    To become a Editor you have to work for it, this means posting all sorts of news like for example Gaming Previews / Gaming News / Gaming Reviews / General News. You will have to be able to keep on top of the news and post the news daily and work towards the badge.

    How do i know what sections to post the news in?

    Gaming Previews: This is Previews of all sorts of things to do with gaming. You will be able to tell if it is a preview of somthing or not. Just make sure to skim read the information before posting it.

    Gaming News: This is to do with all sorts of Gaming things with all types of consoles, news about world wide games and updates about things to do with world wide gaming.

    Gaming Reviews: This is reviews about new release games or updates to games or even new released consoles.

    Note: Remember to skim read the information to see where it goes if your not sure where to post


    Posting on the Homepage.

    If you have posted in the Gaming Previews/Gaming News/Gaming Reviews and you're gonna Promote your Topic to an Article on the Homepage to Change your Title and first line if you can in somewhere to make it different from your Topic in the Forums.

    What if there is not much news to post that day?

    If there is no news for you to post or if the other Editors have already posted the news don't worry about it. At times there are days where not much news is posted as there is not much news going about at the time. Do not worry about not being able to post any news for that day.

    Will i get Editor took of me if i stop posting news?

    If you try for Editor and post number of amounts of news and then get the Editor badge you have to carry on what you were doing before you got Editor, and you cant just stop posting new after you have been given the Badge other wise it wouldn't be called Editor.


    If you want to work towards this you'll get a Shiny New Member Group/Badge and Award

    Member Group = [​IMG] XPG Editor

    Badge = [​IMG]

    Award = [​IMG]

    When you guys are posting in The Gaming Previews/News/Reviews make sure you check what your gonna post isn't already posted and when crediting your Source don't Link it just Name them.

    Thankyou!

    I think XPG should have only 1/2 editors
    .. Because if everybody decides to become editor we gonna start seeing the same stuff over and over again .. Just my opinion tho

    You're spot on, I think that has just been proven over the last two days, Old New & Previews posted and double topics aswell, I'm guilty I have double posted today!

    honestly IMO you're the best editor XPG has .. Always delivering the best news, previews and reviews .. I'm sorry to all the other but that's just my opinion .. Lately I been reading news that were originally posted in September/October .. And basically its just copy/paste from other websites .. If I remember correctly when XPG started having editors it was supposed to be people that gather news from other websites but share them here on their own words .. Everybody can copy/paste .. What if everybody decides to spam the forums with copy/pasted news just to get their post count up .. Do you guys think it's right? I know it's up to the big bosses but .. I think it's a step back having everybody posting .. Again I'm sorry if some people got offend by this

    Everything has been posted 2-3 times today. Definitely agree with PK89 on this one. Three different copy/paste jobs is kind of annoying. If you are going to post gaming new, then you should either search and make sure it's not already been posted or write an actual article in your own words.
