Digital Posted June 19, 2017 Share Posted June 19, 2017 So, some of you might have been following the recent thread about FelisFire being put for sale by it's owner: I wanted to reiterate my viewpoints on news here as well. Game news can be posted here by any of our members, not just he game owners. Unless the news post is designed to create drama, or attack a person directly, it is okay to post. We encourage game owners to offer official responses, we really do! News is moderated like any other topic here on the boards. Point 1 and 3 brought up something that I wanted to point out: No Game can honestly expect the release of their news or updates to be kept private if they post it in a public, or semi-public (logged in member) area. If it is consumable by members, it is consumable by the public at large. Point 3, unless there is a valid legal reason to restrict the news being posted (legal in sense United States law, with respect to journalistic laws and rights afforded), I will not restrict the posting of news for any game site. If a game's owner wishes to control information, they should step forth and post it before a member does. I believe in the freedom and transparency that comes with allowing the community to post news and updates. I applaud how @Navy handled the posting, as it kept other parties private and was handled very well. I can respect the need for official responses, and I totally 110% encourage them. I will not keep news postings restricted to only game owners though, even if that game owner or staff wishes it so. I am not doing this to be combative or militant. I am doing this to create a sense of transparency within the community and industry by just being open about it. My primary role is to encourage this community to share and grow, and I am not going to limit what our members can do for any game owner who wishes to keep their games information restricted or controlled outside of their game. If any game owner has questions or concerns, they may contact me via a PM, or on Discord, and we can gladly and openly discuss. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
