Tip.It Times - 29 April 2012


Recommended Posts

Time for a new release of the: >>>Tip.It Times!<<<






Remember, YOU can write an article for the Tip.It Times! You can apply to write full time, or just submit a "one-off" guest article any time you want! Our editors will work with you to ensure that your article is ready for publication. All guest articles can be submitted to @tripsis or any other Editorial Panel member. For more information, including details on how to apply full time, read this forum thread: http://forum.tip.it/topic/209138-how-to-write-for-the-tipit-times/


I'd like to remind people of the rules pertaining to Times threads:


[hide=Read these rules before posting in this thread]

Rampant flame wars have taken control of virtually every week's times discussion topics. The following guidelines must be followed when posting on this topic. Posts that ignore these guidelines will be removed.


1. You are invited and welcome to express like or dislike on articles and a particular author's writing style. It is not acceptable, however, to flame or personally insult an author. Posts that aren't anything but an attack will be removed from the topic.


2. Spelling and grammar errors can be reported to tripsis or Jaffy1 by PMing them and they will be fixed promptly. It is not necessary to post them on the discussion topic.


3. Off topic posts that do not discuss the content of that week's articles will be removed. This is not the place to discuss the direction of the times, how much you love or hate the times, etc. Off topic posts will be removed.


By keeping within these guidelines, Times discussion topics will mean more for the Panel and Administration than just a place for flame wars. Flame wars do not provide any useful feedback to the Times, which is mainly what we're aiming for with these topics: feedback.


This policy is effective as of now, November 17, 2010. Any posts prior to the creation of this policy may or may not be removed according to the new guidelines.



When replying please make sure to clarify the article you are replying to! Thanks!


If you spot any typos or mistakes in the article then please PM them to @Jaffy1. :)


Enjoy the articles!

Something is missing:


Alright enough with the "not going to bet" last lines...


Nothing wrong with a bit of fixer-uppery to existing content though... Though it was sort of a good point, I didn't notice the lack of major updates lately.. No new areas have been released in a long time in particular


Also: Those aren't guest editorials, they're fiction pieces...

I thought the first one was well written and i agree with it. The only the article forgot to mention was the lack of quest for the past TWO MONTHS! Jagex always pride itself with releasing at least one quest a month. I hope may makes up for it. The last two article are categorizes wrong. They should be fiction pieces, NOT guest editorials.

Thanks, guys. We noticed that as well and they've been relabeled as fictional. :)



THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Regarding "Something is Missing":


President Lyndon B. Johnson once commented, "If one morning I walked on top of the water across the Potomac River, the headline that afternoon would read 'President Can't Swim.'"


Bot Nuke Day and the continuing efforts to keep bots out of the game take a lot of effort. Changes to the engine often ripple through applications, and require reworking of code that is already "complete". If Jagex is holding back on releasing quests and skill improvements so they don't have to write them twice, I approve.
