Thinking of doing a stream series soon. The theme: Retro games I never beat as a kid and want to try again. Thoughts?

Your First Review

Once either Nerdberry or The Cubist has sent you your registration details and pointed you to this area of the site (see figure 1 and figure 2) to read over, we expect to see at least 1 (one) article waiting for our approval within 2 weeks.   Although we’ll never be able to completely weed out every dud in the bunch, we do spend a  lot of time reaching out to potential writers, corresponding with them, assisting them with using the site, and making them feel welcome.  While we are in the habit of gently nudging members who we feel may have forgotten about us, we’re often at odds about what to do with disinterested writers.  For this reason, we’d like to see your first review up within 2 weeks.

Figure 1 - Members area is located in the top right of any page on the site.

Beyond this stipulation, all the other “rules” still apply though you are free to write your monthly 2 to 4 reviews in any fashion you’d like.  We hate to “demand” content in this manner, but for those truly interested in helping this shouldn’t be a major problem.  Too many people are wildly enthusiastic about the sign-up process but then fail to ever log-in and generate anything for us.  If you are registered as a member but do not have an article waiting for our approval within 2 weeks, you may be deleted without notice.  We feel that we are spending far too much time and energy being nice to those who would waste it.

Furthermore, if you are having trouble getting started and knowing how to prioritize, please drop us a line.

Thanks for your understanding.

If this is your first time, please read through the required reading IN ORDER.
