[quote=dollydolman]Yeah but the stories are just copied and pasted from site to site anyway, that's how most news site operate on the game console front. Personally I would write it up myself if I didn't have anything else to do but obviosly I'm not a reporter so I don't have to lol.[/quote]
This isn't really a problem. They pop up on the "View New Posts" page and we recycle them.
To cut down on copies... right before you submit click "view new posts" and check to see if anyone else has posted it. I did that today with the Japanese Metal Gear launch event story. That should help.
[!--quoteo(post=0:date=:name=ff_guru)--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE (ff_guru)[div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]Well I must agree with the thought of plagerism and Ive always wondered if reporters are really doing their job correctly, to me a reporter gathers facts and summarizes them and informs the public about the events. What I believe Reporters should start doing is summarizing the articles in their own words while including important facts because that's the whole point.[/quote]
Guru, buddy, you can't really summarize a summary. This is what most of those articles are, little quick blips about new info. There's nothing wrong with copying and pasting and showing the source. You guys gotta stop worrying about this.
