Today's Takeaway - 09/21
After yesterday's takeaway we received a lot of great feedback from the g1s, but missRPGenius brought up a point in her comment regarding our "headline style" that I wanted to bring to the community. From the inception of the "Gaming News" section, we chose to write our headlines a specific way. That style in particular was to capitalize only the first word and any proper nouns in the title. Similar to Joystiq.
There are no rules on how any site should do this and there are other alternatives. For example, Kotaku uses a more professional style, capitalizing most words; except the small, unimportant ones. Then there is Game Informer, who capitalizes every word. So which of these do you like best? Should we stick with the current format, take a more proper approach to capitalization, or just capitalize everything?
It is your site to and since you have to look at it every day (please look at it every day), it might as well look the way you like! Bring your thoughts to the comments below.
Why not? We could get you an 'A'!
Oh by the way, this message is for Chad.. Please make sure to make Death Battle Interesting... Well to me, it's kinda losing it's flame. I've been wondering if it's because the lack of Characters for death battle.
You guys have been the best as is already. the new update on the site is great! Hard News before was a concern at the time with the whole "G4" moment which is something UnJared like. Jared is already formative as is and there's nothing need to be change to make it effective. Unless if it was setting wise for screwattack's Hard News I suggest NOT doing what G4, Kotaku, and Game informer. You guys have your way and this is why we been with you guys through thick and thin!
I think it is ok the way it is now, so if it depends on me keep it the way you are doing it now
facebook needs to realize this
keep up the good work its fine as is
It's fine the way it is.
I really like the layout you have going on now.
Hurray! My account has been revived!
I'd say stick to proper capitalization rules -- and props for doing so up to this point! I don't say this just because I'm an English teacher, but also because I just know that whenever I read an article on a website that capitalizes every single word, doing so takes away any chance to emphasize one thing over another. Game titles will blend into the rest of the headline rather than stand out, for one example.
On a similar note, major props for the improved spell-checking that has gone on so far since the migration to the new site -- especially with homophones like "your" vs. "you're."
I also think its fine, no problems coming from my corner.
It's fine how it is xP imo
Like I always say: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
i'm good with how it looks now can't really see a reason to change something like that it gets the job done and makes important parts pop ( instead of having everthing pop) or leas in most cases i'd think
Proper grammar style
Watch out its a commie cat! Shes is going to instill her anti-capitalist views and atheism on everyone!!
Its fine to do it this way....most articles just capitalize the first word, I believe, if they are professional articles. But Im not gonna use screwattack as a reference to my term papers so it doesnt matter :P
Randomly capitalize letters and tell them grammar nerds to go rot.
Keep it as is I say.
