Yes. We accept many types of links on Gaming News Channel. Such as news, previews, reviews, opinion, videos, or use the random category for anything you like. Each of which are pretty self explanatory with their own relevant categories.
Some rules for each post type:
- Make sure to include the link to the original post (Gaming News Channel will automatically grab relevant images and text from the URL similar to Reddit)
- Include a short summary for the link your posting.
- Add any relevant tags to the post
- Add the link to the appropriate corresponding category.
What happens after I publish the post? Does it show up on the site instantly?
Yes. Every link you post is automatically posted on Gaming News Channel.
What if I am an other game site owner? Can I publish my links on your site?
Yes! We highly encourage other game site owners to promote their existing content on our platform such as reviews, news and opinion pieces. You can simply add a link to your content to get more exposure and build up back links to your site.
Are you ever looking for help to run the site?
Yes! We are always on the look out for people to help out. We are currently in need of community moderators to help manage discussions and approve comments.
What if I create a profile and I’m missing an Avatar image?
If you use Facebook or Twitter to create an account it should automatically pull your image from those sites. If you create a WordPress account and don’t already have a Gravatar set up you will need to go to Gravatar.com and set up an Avatar using the same email you used to create your account on Gaming News Channel. Once you set it up you should have an image on our site.
