New editorial on Futuremark's new guidelines
 
Hanners has just put a new editorial up at EB regarding Futuremark's new guidelines which he doesn't cuss in enough as usual, but is a darn good read none-the-less for it. ;)

Quote:

However, the guidelines fail to answer several pertinent questions. Firstly, and most importantly, by using the guidelines we now have a description of the crime, but what is the punishment for committing the crime? As any police officer will tell you, to prevent crime you need a deterrent of some kind, and this is something which seems to be lacking here. What will happen to anyone who dares to break these guidelines? Will they simply be spoken to about them in private, or will they be publicly ridiculed? Will the scores in question be allowed to remain on FutureMark’s Orb database or will they be removed? If there is no punishment for breaking these guidelines, then there is no deterrent and thus no use for the guidelines in the first place.
Highly recomended even if it is blatant pimpage, Hanners is always a good read. :cool:

I am just wondering... is there no 'submit news' option in nvnews or an option to email something of a newsworthy nature to the news posters ?

just would make it seem a little better...

You should be able to do that via news@nvnews.net or something. I believe that sends an e-mail to all news posters.

Alternate solution: give me the ability the post news and I will post stuff that gets overlooked ;)
