The Guides N' Tips! forum is the section of the site where members of DaBargainBin™ can come share their guidance for video games. Written guides, video examples, instructional images and more are adequate forms of instructional material. Files and assets related to competitive growth are also allowed to be shared here (ex. Racing Ghosts, Level Replay files, etc.)
I. POST LENGTH:
Guides should adequately and thoroughly explain their topic. While there isn't an exact length specification for a guide, guides shouldn't feel largely incomplete. Sometimes it pays to be unconventional with the information presented. Within the right context any type of info can be invaluable to a topic.
II. NO SPAM/HAVE SOME PRIDE IN YOUR WORK:
Users that write guides are expected to check for appropriate formatting, spelling, grammar, etc. A guide doesn't serve a purpose to anybody if it can't be understood. Replies shouldn't be asking for information that is already covered in the guide or is unrelated to its topic.
III. BE APPROPRIATE:
No content that discriminates against race, sex, religion etc. No targeting other members, and in general attempt to exercise proper online etiquette. This goes for replies to these guides as well! Constructive criticism is okay, but hate isn't.
IV. REVISING YOUR GUIDE:
If you add more information to your guide or update it in a significant manner (spelling and other fixes of the nature count if the changes are plentiful) then edit the initial post with your changes. Then post a reply to the thread to notify the readers of what changes have been made.
V. HAVE FUN:
We are happy to have those here that are interested in educating others in games they understand. The idea is for the player-base and their games to be able to grow and support one another, so let's work to create a helpful, friendly environment!
