ive just spent about an hour or so reading through this forum. its pretty cool seeing who's done what and everything, and the greenbook idea is good too.

about the greenbook, this is probably a stupid question, but if you have something to add, do you just create a new post in the thread and someone on the guide team will integrate it into the existing post or will we be able to edit existing posts ourself to add stuff?

Not a stupid question at all.

Yeah, post within the thread and we will move a copy of the [G & R] into the forum for you.
Then you may post additional posts into the [WiP] [G & R], until it's complete. Then a GT member will take all the added new info and publish it, crediting all who contributed.

Cheers!

about the achievement tile submissions(i know im like an inquisitive child), does submitting the coloured versions of the tiles count towards the award at all? i submitted the coloured versions of the achievement tiles for dragonborn and one of the borderlands dlc's, so just wondering if they count or not.

cheers.

The colored versions are exactly what the award is for.

As for your submissions, I don't know if they were used or maybe someone else submitted them before you, but you should post in that thread anyway.

oh, cheers.

sorry for the partial submissions too, i was planning on submitting them as i got them, but i figured you wouldn't want 10 separate submissions for them, so after the first 3 i waited til' i got them all and submitted them all at once.

The Tiles will be sorted through and uploaded with time. And when they are, awards will be handed out and the Award Tracking: Achievement Tiles subforum will be updated. If you've submitted tiles before September, please let us know which games they were for within

If we've submitted tiles that haven't been put to use yet, do we re-submit them here, or do we continue with the submit forum?

No, please do not resubmit them. We have your submission for Red Button It just hasn't been uploaded yet.

For tiles, please continue to use the regular Submit forum. Only use the Submit: Guides and Roadmaps for [G & R] purposes. It is handled by entirely different staff

Absolutely brilliant new section! I love it completely and I am very pleased with the improvements to this site. In my opinion, it was going downhill, but ever since Creech arrived back and Clueless became a mod, the improvements have been skyrocketing along with the quality of the site. Thanks to both of you, and other people who help behind the scenes.

Okie doke! I wouldn't have questioned it, but the other tiles went up almost the day after I submitted them (at least, it seemed that way!), so when it wasn't up immediately, I was curious. :P I guess I'll just have to be a little more patient.

I don't know why but when I first clicked I anticipated, quite literally, a new forum with a completely new lay out announcement.

But hey, this sounds good.
