Just awesome like that
If you'd like me to, sure.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

I have never done anything like this. I have filled out online petitions and taken part in boycotts and stuff like that but I have never gone about setting one up. I take it the best way of starting would be to use this issue as a jumping off point, explaining the circumstances that set it in place and going on from there?

Sounds about right to me.

At the very least encourage the culture on this forum.

If you're going to talk about a deliberately inflammatory article that infuriates you then don't link to it because that just gives the hacks money and keeps them in business.

Instead quoteblock everything or make a graphic screenshot of the article and link to that image instead.

Stop talking about the importance of reviews when discussing games and stop hyperlinking to them. At the most just quotemine important phrases and paragraphs.

When discussing a game's reception at its launch link to forum discussions of people who've played the game because online communities cut the crap and don't have a relationship with game publishers that is blatantly a conflict of interest.

If we can start with this kind of stuff on TVT then that'll be a start that would be actually achievable.

The problem with this kind of thing is that for every one person that doesn't visit Kotaku, or IGN, or Gameinformer, there are tens, maybe hundreds more that do, and don't care.

Also another problem lies in where to get actual news. Blogposts and independant sites are great when you can find them, and they work, but they miss a lot that the big-names get.

That's not to say no one should do it: they should. But it's more for moral reasons than the hope that any actual change will happen.

I already avoid most gaming journalism.

I actually contributed to a games website a while ago. It was small, and I thought they took user reviews, but they gave it the royal treatment :D
And I can't think of one thing in this whole wide blessed world
That's more dangerous and frightening than you when you get bored
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
