|If you are a fan of this game and would like to contribute content, here's how: Post a message in this topic that has one or several round ideas. Each idea should have some (or all) of the following:
Comment that is displayed if the player gets it right
Comment that is displayed if the player gets it wrong
Hint image idea
Is the order of the two words important?
Here is an example from the game (and the format you should submit your content in):
Theme: Ball Joint
Word 1: Tennis
Word 2: Elbow
Correct comment: Ha ha ha! Ball Joint, Tennis Elbow! That's a new low!
Incorrect comment: I don't blame you for not getting that one. It's a stretch, but you know it's funny.
Hint image: Tennis ball
Order is important: Yes
"Order is important: Yes" Will swap the order of the two submitted words (once entered correctly) if the user enters the second word into Word 1. In the above example, the user could have submitted "ELBOW" first, and that would be fine, but once the answers were submitted correctly it would read "Elbow Tennis." It would make more sense if it read "Tennis elbow," so the words will switch places (if "Order is important: Yes").
If you don't include all of the above information for each entry, that's ok. If we decide to use your content we can fill in the missing elements. We do reserve the right to refuse to add your content or to modify it in any way. Please note, we want to maintain a fairly strict level of quality and consistency so if your entry doesn't make it into the game please don't take it personally. Also, whenever possible, we will post a brief message in the message in this topic to let you know if we added your ideas. However, we cannot guarantee that this will happen due to the possible number of submissions, etc.
Have fun with this- if you've played the game (and we recommend you do), you'll notice that some of the content is easy, some is straight forward, some relies on puns or jokes, some relies on literary tricks, etc. Be creative!
We are investigating new ideas for user submitted content for the future of Great Day Games, which may include awarding treats for users who submit content, allowing users to rate each other's content, etc. But for now we thought this would be an intermediate solution for Spliterature.
Thanks in advance for your contributions! Have fun!
