View Full Version : A "Missing Guides" Section

I noticed on the homepage under Site Navigation- Achievements, that there is a "missing achievements" section. This section lists every achievement that doesn't have an achieved/colored in achievement tile. This tool is great for users to find and submit any missing tile that may have gone unnoticed had the function not existed.

Because it is so useful for helping users submit new tiles, I think it would be a good idea to have another section under Site Navigation called "Missing Guides." Within this section of the guide, would be a list of every game that needs a guide written for it.

A lot of games are forgotten if they aren't popular and go for more than a month after release without a guide being written. I have seen many of these games around the site. I figured that it would be useful to have a quick and easy way for potential guide writers to find every game that they could write a guide for.

The system works beautifully to keep every needed achievement tile recognized, and I think that the same system would work just as well with achievement guides.

Seems like a decent idea, I had one to awhile back where I was thinking they could put some of the basic forum rules and regulations, and some "How To" links there as well.

I'm sure there is a lot of different things that could work with being added to the site navigation box. But sometimes you just need to know the limitations of what really needs to be there. The Guide Team and the regular members do guides fairly quickly, but sadly not so decently. :p

I like the idea. It would be helpful so we can know what games we can make guides for.

This is a decent idea, and already exists, it just hasn't been updated in awhile.

If you take a gander at the FAQ for making achievement guides:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=61662

There used to be a section in there for all the guides... it listed ones that were awesome, ones that needed work, and ones that didn't exist.

Unfortunately, the list hadn't been updated in awhile, so the posts were soft deleted. The list is being updated in the guide team forums, so as soon as Marx0r gets his ass in line, the list will be back in the FAQ, and you all will have all your awesome sauce information.
