Tip.It Times - 12th December 2014


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!

Thanks for the heads up. I'll have someone look into it.


Edit: It's all set now. A big thank you to @tripsis for the quick fix. Go forth, fair readers, and enjoy your weekly serving of the goodness that is the Tip.It Times! :-D



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...

Canada Crow:   Nice article I specially liked the PMS line and your conclusion is of course totally accurate: “time that you enjoy wasting is not wasted time”


About my own article: I sadly forgot to include a thank you to all who helped out by providing me with answers.. mea culpa.. and a huge THANK YOU from this spot!!!!

Very nice article Dracae :) 



Fun fact: It was totally coincidental that Dracae and I wrote articles that fit very well together :P

Great minds...  ok.. one great mind and lil old me.. lol



All alone here on this thread.. lol...

Lets just assume they all agree. 

Maybe we should have made a contest: Everyone write their own reasons and the best ones get published in the next article.

Why do I get these ideas when its too late...

All my reasons have already been said in the current articles, really.


RuneScape is the only MMO that has actual *quests* that aren't just "Go there, fetch 5 of X, kill 10 of Y, come back for GP."

Many of the quests have really enjoyables storylines that only leave you wanting more once you finish the last quest in a series and realize that the storyline is over.


Also, I really like how every piece of equipment changes the way your character looks. In some other games, equipment barely changes the look of your character, while in others you just have tons of equipment that re-use the same models but with slight modifications.

In RuneScape, very few pieces of equipment re-use the same models, so everything you wear or wield makes your character look way different.


Having access to all the skills and classes instead of being limited to just one class and just one profession, etc. etc.

The music is pretty darn epic as well, and the afk-bility of most skills means you don't have to sacrifice your time to level up, since you can let your character level up by him/herself while you do something else on the side, like studying, doing homework, playing another game, reading, etc.
