    Default How to post news...Read this before you post

    Threads with no source may be deleted as staff sees fit(mainly me). So please post sources to your news.

    Update #2: You are now allowed to have links to the source article, BUT you still need to have an article.
    STILL, FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES



    Ok so you see a interesting topic and you think. "Hey I should post this on xbox360iso because it's interesting and loads of people will rep me for it

    This is NOT how you post news:

    You see that there's a new stairlift for overweight dogs. So you make a thread here for it:

    Thread title: Little mermaid was found in the sea

    A warning about obesity in dogs has seen the design of the world's first dog stairlift.

    According to a shock report, one in three dogs of the 8.3 million canines in the United Kingdom are now obese.

    So a device that can transport portly pooches up stairs has been unveiled.

    Based on a conventional stair lift, the 'Stair of the Dog 2022' concept has been in development for six months and has a number of high tech modifications that make it dog friendly.

    As well as a comfy basket for pets to sit in during the stair elevation stage, it features an electronic retractable platform - activated by a paw recognition button - to take said dog from floor to basket level.

    The prototype has been created by MORE TH>N pet insurance, who warn that if obesity levels continue to rise at the current rate, over half of all pooches will be severely overweight (52 per cent) by 2022.

    What's wrong here:

    1. The thread title it misleading.
    2. The image is right next to the text, so it's kind of awkward
    3. This article is filled with hyper-links.
    4. There isn't a source.
    5. You can't tell where the article ends and the user comment begins.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the way to post proper news:

    1. Make the thread title relevant to the thread,
    2. Highlight all of the text (you're on a computer so you should know how to do this) and click this tab at the top "". This tab will get rid of those hyperlinks.
    3. Then press this "". You will see these come up [...QUOTE][.../QUOTE] (highlight the text again if you have to) around the article without the "..."
      • The image should be by itself outside of the quote tags. This also applies for youtube videos

    4. Add the source...ADD A SOURCE...can't state this enough

      • YOU ARE NOW ALLOWED to put the link for the source.


      • Optional: Quote the source just like you did the article
    5. Say what you want about the article

    With these 5 very easy steps you will get this:

    Videos that are posted must still have a source. IGN, Youtube, Yahoo etc etc.

    If at all possible, add the description of the video too.

    Might be worth pointing out to those who dont get it that it has to actually be news.

    e.g.
    http://www.xbox360iso.com/what-lowes...e-t615616.html
    What is the lowest price of the IPAD 80G ?
    Great xbox 360 game news right there!!
