    The Editorial Team: Fresh Faces, Formats and Features


    Fresh Faces


    As many of you will have noticed, earlier this month we debuted a number of new and exciting features and changes, not least of which was the addition of two new team members: ChrisValentine and Larrydavidsavatar!

    As longtime forum members and active posters, and we're glad to have them on board the new Editorial Team. Both have hit the ground running with a pair of excellent reviews (Gran Turismo 6 and Don't Starve), and we all hope to see more great things from them in the future.

    A Lick of Paint

    Just because we're no longer called the Review Team doesn't mean we won't still do reviews, mind you. Alongside our new members, we've also debuted a brand new review format. Those of you who checked out LDA's Don't Starve Review will already be familiar with it, but if you haven't seen it, and are interested in our reviews, please pop over and take a look (link above).

    The aim of the new format is to present a cleaner, clearer review that cuts through all the bullshit to give you an honest and concise opinion, combined with a snapshot of reviews from the major outlets from across the web and print spaces, and a reliable recommendation from gamers just like yourself.

    The format is still very much in progress, and we're always trying to think of ways to improve it. We'd love to hear what you guys think, and what you want from our reviews, so if you have any suggestions, tips, observations, or questions, post them in the comments below.

    New Projects

    Also new this month is our collaborative feature, Currently Playing. Out on the first of every month, Currently Playing is all about what games we're playing now, good deals and sales, and what upcoming games we think are worth keeping your eye on.

    Who's we? The Editorial Team will be the primary contributors, but each issue will also feature guest writers, and everyone (from Admins to Basic Users) is welcome to send us a submission. If you're interested, send me a PM and I'll help you get started.

    What else is new?

    The Editorial Team are not the only ones responsible for change around these parts. Member of the Month is back with renewed purpose. Participation levels have been pretty good so far, but the more people that vote, the better.

    To complement MotM, a new Staff of the Month competition has been launched. Running in tandem with MotM, SotM is there for the community to show their appreciation for the efforts of all the staff who keep this place going.

    Similar to Member of the Month, we have introduced the Checklist Spotlight, a bimonthly competition to showcase best and brightest Trophy Checklists on our fair site. We've held it twice so far, and both times we've had a great turn-out, with wins going to some truly deserving users and their phenomenal CLs.

    The winner of each of these will feature in an interview, conducted by one of the site staff.

    Good shit, Faust and co.

    But seriously I'm glad the greys are getting active again, especially like this.
