Tip.It Times - 15th December 2013


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 by PMing her 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.



[hide=Submitting Crossword Puzzles]If you want to submit your own crossword puzzle, it's quite simple.


Simply provide a word list (about 10-20 words) with their corresponding clues. Then, message @The Floating Pen with the word list and it will eventually be published in the Tip.it Times![/hide]


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


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


Enjoy the articles!

As a Zamorakian I shouldn't meddle in meaningless wars yet I feel satisfied to aid both sides, let them bicker and die!


Armadyl isn't pleased as I place skulls in front of him but no justice will be acquired through pacifism. There will be justice tainted in blood. The god has sided with several factions before perhaps opportunity arises when one beast is gone or replaced.


&Whilst I enjoy the intentions of Bandos perhaps Tuska's power can be harnessed...

Nice articles. Stormrage does a good job as a mentalist, trowing out generalized truths readers are bound to identify with., wile Alg goes about things a lil more straightforward, .  like it or not, it is what it is. Suits the perspective gods.


I do think Armadyl has better lobbyist at Jagex, they use bright colors to paint him as a rightious 'man', wile Bandos comes across much more one-dimensional and frankly less appealing. 

I speculated in an earlier article that Jagex has its favorites, even if they themselves don't know or acknowledge.  Arma is higher on that list then Bandos, but I still think we will find the surprisingly similar Zaros and guthix (r.i.p.)  at the top.

Mod Mark (the head of RS in general) favours Bandos.... Nuff said ;)


Excellent spotting of the "Barnum statements" too...


I should mention that this was a first for the Times, where we have two writers directly opposing one another and publishing at the same time, rather than one reacting to the other... Personally, I was hoping for a bit more fireworks, but if you guys like this kind of antagonism, who knows what can happen...
