News that are to be posted in the Headline News and News Submission sections should follow the following rules. These rules are put in place so that posts in both of these sections look cleaner and nicer.

News articles can follow this example here.

Translated articles can follow this example here.

  • The first few paragraphs of the news article should be copied/pasted as the content of the post. There must be at least 3 to at most 5 paragraphs.
  • All paragraphs are to be separated by a new line.

Example:
A fourteen-year-old boy was killed after the chair he was sitting on exploded, propelling sharp chair parts into his rectum, causing extensive bleeding, which he succumbed to before medical attention could stem the flow.

The accident occurred when the boy was alone, sitting on the chair (which was for PC use); he managed to overcome the pain and call his father, who summoned an ambulance, but it took an hour to get him to hospital, by which time it was too late for him.

  • If the content of the news article has 5 paragraphs or less, the entire content can be copied/pasted into the post.
  • If the entire news article is to be copied/pasted into a post, the link to the news article should use the word "Source" as the hyperlink, and the source of the news article be placed in-between parentheses.

Example:
Source (Itai News, Japanese)

  • If the news article exceeds 5 paragraphs long, the link to the news article may use the words "Read more here" or any similar wordings as the hyperlink. The source of the news article in-between parentheses is optional.
Example:
Read more here. (Itai News, Japanese)

  • If the news article have at least 5 very short paragraphs in the beginning of the body, the sentences may be concatenated together to form larger paragraphs. The maximum amount of sentences that can be concatenated is 30 sentences. News article usually do not concatenate more than 15 sentences to form paragraphs, unless they are scientific reports and/or studies.
  • If the news article contains images/pictures relevant to the news, it may be included in the post.
  • The poster may add comments below the hyperlink.
Example:
The boy in question weighed 80kg (certainly a fair amount for a 14-year-old Asian youth), which might have been a factor (though this will not reassure heavier framed non-Asian adults); it is suggested that using such chairs without placing excessive pressure on the cylinder is advisable – otherwise sitting on a steel plate might help.

Dude...How lucky it is for me to sit on the floor playing Warcraft 3 right now...

Thanks in advance.

  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
