    Here are some content guidelines that you should follow:

    • Cussing is allowed, but it’s preferred that you do not direct it toward anyone specific. Say “Watch them fucking die!” and even “Watch the fuckers die!”, but not “MediaPluck is a fucker!”
    • No hate speech or derogatory remarks such as faggot, etc.
    • Opinion pieces are fine. Say what’s on your mind. These will be posted as editorials.
    • Try to be entertaining as well as informative.
    • Try to have a hook in your story. In other words, put something in the first sentence that will make them want to keep reading.
    • Try to have a point or angle to every article.
    • Try to keep it concise and on track. No word limit for now. Please don’t make us add one.
    • Try to put at least one (edited) graphic in each article. We love images.
    • We want original content. Post it here first.
    • Remember that our target audience are Clash of Clans players, former Clash of Clans players, and future Clash of Clans players.
    • Photos and screenshots should be in high resolution.
    • Videos should be posted to YouTube, which we’ll embed and include the link to.
    • Don’t worry too much about getting the format exactly right. The editor will fix these.
