The PSB & Weekly Recap

82 18

Read this on Kotaku recently (pulled from Lifehacker), and seeing as how we tend to end up with nearly as many comments per post over here, thought this might be a nice thing to share: Tips for useful commenting.

We value your comments, tips, and suggestions – and following these basic guidelines will help make sure everyone else does too. Remember, nobody respects people who say “First!”

• Stay on topic.
• Contribute new information to the discussion.
• Don’t comment for the sake of commenting.
• Know when to comment and when to e-mail.
• Remember that nobody likes a know-it-all.
• Make the tone of your message clear.
• Own your comment.
• Be succinct.
• Cite your sources with links or inline quoting.
• Be courteous.
• Don’t post when you’re angry, upset, drunk or emotional.
• Do not feed or tease the trolls.

Also, I think I’d add to that “Don’t comment 12 times in the same post.” The vast majority of you follow these guidelines on a daily basis, but these tips will help keep the BanSword in its sheath.

Anyways, if you’re just tuning in, here’s what you missed on PlayStation.Blog and this week. Comment away!

  • Gun of the Week: Fact-finding – This isn’t a “Gun of the Week” so much as a “What Guns Do You Want To See?”
  • Poll of the Week: Custom Controls? – What’s your preference? Do you like defaults or do you change it up?
  • Play Profiles – Here comes some info on how the profiles are going to work, complete with example.
  • Dev Q&A 12 – David Seymour gives us the straight dope on sniping, chat, and weight lossencumbrance.
  • Sneak Peek – Awards – I break down the rewards, which let you show off just how awesome you really are.
