Welcome to the review forum, please take a few moments to read this before contributing content.

When posting your review, it's a good idea that you put what group/format the review comes under.

For example:

[b][FILM][/b] War of the Worlds
[b][GAME][/b] Halo 2
[b][GAME - DLC][/b] RDR - Legends of the West


It will make the forum easier to navigate through, less confusing and even nicer to look at perhaps, especially when there are many reviews.

The other groups, which are probably best to use as everyone will be able to tell exactly what the review is about, are listed below. Obviously if you write a review that doesn't fall under these categories feel free to add it:

Game, Movie (including Films, DVDs & Cinemas), Gadget (MP3 players and Satnavs etc.), Electronics (TVs, DVD players, etc), Software, Book, Music, PC Periperhals and Website.

[b]Remember:[/b] If you post a review that isn't your own work please follow these rules, otherwise you will be plagerising, which is strongly frowned upon.

- DO NOT under any circumstances, use content that you do not have express and direct permission from the original owner to use. If you get permission from the original owner, you must credit the owner and state that you have their permission.

- If the content states that anyone may use the information, then feel free to post, but make sure you abide by the owners requests, and credit the owner regardless.

Final thing to say is that we want to have as many reviews as possible here, so don't be afraid to have a go, who knows you may even win a prize for it, courtesy of Freeola's [link=http://freeola.com/gameaday/][b]Gaming and Design Award[/b][/link]!

If you're having any trouble starting a review, or you simply don't know what to include in it, check out the 'Latest Winners' list to view some of the content that has won a Gaming and Design Award in the past.

I think that's everything that needs to be said, so thanks to Freeola for setting this up for us. Enjoy. :)

Hello!

This may be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask anyway.

I've seen people use quotes before in reviews, so I know that's acceptable. Just wandering about the whole copyright thing, as mentioned in the thread. Do we have to reference quotes, and if so- how?

Once again, sorry for asking. Don't want to get into trouble...

I think that it would a lot better if freeola was older, because it has occurred to me that every other gaming website has much more content than freeola. Also, who would be so big of a loser that they would have to copy an entire review? That was my reply.

Any chance of a Mod in this forum or Staffie removing the link in this post?

I mentioned it in the recent discussions within the Review forum but guess it was missed...

Want to point out the rules on this thread to ALL users who post reviews. One of them specifically is nearly always forgotten :)

Oh excellent that'll be a good trip. And some game reviews? Nice ;) I suppose you do what pb and Kawada do and gradually write them over a few days. Just make sure to finish them ^^ I still have a big Singapore review somewhere on my desktop. I started it months ago heh.

The coolest ISP ever!
In my opinion, the ISP is the best I have ever used. They guarantee 'first time connection - everytime', which they have never let me down on.
Easy and free service!
I think it's fab that you provide an easy-to-follow service, and even better that it's free...!
