UPDATE: Vox Pop Under Renovation
Posted on Wednesday, May 12 2010 @ 18:24:57 PST
I recently featured 10000_Squirrels' editorial "In-Game Collectibles, My Personal Demon", but it seems I need to update everyone on some decisions. I will re-feature the editorial over the weekend or on Monday, because this blog doesn't need to be highlighted any longer than it has to.
The Vox Pop contest is still in beta, but a few decisions have been made. No physical or monetary prizes will be the reward (we may actually run out of tchotskies...). Right now, the main reward is being featured on the site in the Vox Pop box. However, we're working on featuring Vox Pop editorials more thoroughly throughout the site; that is, if the editorial is exceptional, as determined by the GR team, then it might be featured as an actual editorial in the official highlight section. (O_O) This is just one idea.
We also hope our tech team will allow us to feature user reviews as well. And I have a bunch of ideas on that as well. More on that soon...
And yes, we will still be sending the gift certificates for past winners of Vox Pop in this year. They will be sent as soon as we are able. In fact, that's my first priority.
So for now, we will feature your editorials that have been dangling about this month without any Vox Pop coverage. (Just in case, you can PM me if you don't wish your editorials be a Vox Pop entry.)
