A Seibertron.com Guide to Reporting News

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
Howdy fellow Seibertronians!

Va'al here, taking some time to ensure veteran members and newcomers alike are all aware of the best ways of reporting and notifying the staff of news items, from sightings to reveals to articles. Seibertron.com is only as amazing as its users' contributions (and so far, we're all pretty spectacular).

There are two main types of news reporting: emailing the news staff, and using our contact form. As you may have noticed, there is no longer a News & Rumors section on the boards for you post items. So read on below to find out more!


Sightings

Email: sightings@seibertron.com

Any physical sighting of new toys. Please continue to use the Sightings section and the various forums for regional sightings, but if you think something is newsworthy, send us an email with location, price and one or two images of the product, how you'd like to be credited, and we'll check our records - then post it on the front page!

If you spot a post on the boards by another user that you think might be a newsworthy sighting, then please send us an email with a link to it! Some users are able to follow parts of the news feed more thoroughly than others, and we might be sitting on a gem that no one has discovered yet.

Other News

Email: news@seibertron.com
Form: http://www.seibertron.com/contact/index.php?subject=news

This category includes everything else: from official product images, interviews, features, video clips, reviews, promotional material, announcements, press releases, whatever you think might make good, informative or funny front page news - as long as it's Transformers related in some way! Again, drop us a line, make sure to indicate the source (a link would be amazing, even if it's just to a post you made on the boards), how you'd like to be credited in the post, and it'll make its way to the front page.

Again, this also applies to posts made by other users who may not realise that something is newsworthy - just send us a link to the post in an email.


Note
The Seibertron.com staff, both news and forums, are volunteers, and do most of their work on their own time. Please be patient with us as we try to reply within one-two days, and understand that sometimes things can fall between the cracks in the Internet.

Not everything we receive will be posted on the front page, but everything is always considered among the staff before a decision is made either way. If in doubt, check the News feed.


So thanks for reading, and keep up the stellar work,

The Seibertron.com News Staff

Not big news but last week in 5 and below I began seeing the Construct-bots available. Most of the 1st release in there for $5 obviously. Not a bad deal I guess. About 50% off from original purchase price along with some of the Cyberverse/Legion Scales as well.

First you guys make an area for news and rumors and then remove it.

And you wonder why I do not even bother to post here anymore.

It wasn't being used by enough users to warrant its presence, I'm afraid.

The new system (which is really the old one with improvements) doesn't change how it works, you just need to post in the pre-existing thread rather than in the N&R section! :D
