Automatic Flood control coming soon to Cblogs


For the last 10 years, we've asked Community Bloggers not to post too often or once a day to prevent the community blogs from being dominated by one voice. The tradeoff is that you can't blog whenever the hell you want to, even though it's your own blog. We found a possible way to have it both ways.

Starting next week, the main Cblogs page and sidebar page will simply promote your "last blog in" that was submitted in 24 hours. That means if you blogged 3 things today we'll only show the last one. That gives you some control of what we promote, as you still have to exercise some restraint. If you want to catch everything an individual posts you'll still be able to do so from the home page's community remix or by following a user, or going direct to their blog page.

Hopefully this will help flatten equal share of voice and promotion to everyone participating and prevent new overly enthusiastic cbloggers from over-publishing and accidentally pissing off everyone (rip Taylor Stein).

- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Niero Gonzalezone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I live in Japan sometimes.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
