    As promised here is the contest for the month of March. To celebrate the recent merger with Gaming Reinvented I will focus this contest on blog writing on the GR blog.

    The rules are simple, within this month write 2-3 articles on the blog related to video games.

    The articles should be at least 500 words and should have some effort put into it. Nothing of spam level. You will be judged on how well the article is and what its about.

    You can not copy and paste entire articles and claim them as your own, this is plagiarism and won't be tolerated. If you do use parts of other site's content or articles be sure to give proper credit.

    The prizes are as follows:

    1st: 1,500 GL points
    2nd: 800 GL points
    3rd: 500 GL points
    4th place: 250 GL points
    5th place: 100 points

    As a reminder of what our points do, please see the GL store where you can redeem them for actual gaming credit towards your favorite service.

    If you have any questions, ask below if not join up and start posting. Be sure to mention your username on the blog if its different from the one here on the forum. Contest will end when the date becomes April 1st via the forum time.

    Awesome, nice to see the Gaming Reinvented partnership is the focus of this month's contest.

    But yeah, you heard what Demon Skeith said there. Decent quality gaming articles, at least 500 words long. If you need any examples of what to write about, well Zelda Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn were released recently, so articles or reviews about those games could always be an easy option here.

    Good luck!

    Can I write a blog post about some free games that one can get a hold of (along with details on how to get it)?

    Sadly not. Seems like it's got the same issue as my last contest. People are thinking too much about the articles and don't actually get round to writing them.

    Next one will be quality be damned random selection or something.

    You may wanna be quick though

    I'm sorry to hear that. Getting people to write articles is not going to be easy sadly.

    I know. Got that chicken and egg problem with popularity there. Few people post content so few people come to read it, etc.

    Not yet, no. Which is strange, given the people who've shown interest in the contest.
