I only find out about stuff because of the front page, so no, I've never submitted news :DBut I guess it's really cool if your tips/news reports get featured and you get a reward ^^

I've submitted one. It was that one with the guy proposing to his girlfriend via a LEGO stop motion animation. Then I got a boost.

Woah hey I remember thatI've submitted dozens of reports, got two on the front page and a single proto boost. And then I was a reporter.All I can say is that reports rarely go unnoticed. For the most part I read all that were sent within the past three to four days when it comes time to write an article. Anything older is usually irrelevant (or outdated), though occasionally there's some fantastic things that don't become useless with time -as do new set announcements, sales, lego.com updates, etc- that we can still use. (Sometimes it can go back a couple weeks, where it was accidentally skipped for whatever reason.) And trust me, we don't discriminate based on member name or anything like that. If it's news, it's news. If it doesn't get used it's because it's either not front-page-worthy or something better (or more important) was sent in that takes priority.

Unfortunately, I have already had a few reports missed and then featured on the front page later with someone else as the source. :P

Whderp, that's odd. I suppose if you sent the story in quite a bit earlier with a subject different than that of the report used it could get overlooked. Hope it wasn't my fault. ><

No worries, that was before you joined the news team. :P It´s quite a while ago already, perhaps two years.-Gata Posted Image
