Tech News means news regarding technology or gaming. Please don't post topics in this forum that don't have a strong relation to technology/games.
When creating a thread in the News subforum, please make sure your post meets the following criteria:
Your thread must include some original input to tell the reader why it is relevant to them, and what your personal opinion on the topic is. This needs to be MORE than just a quick, single comment to meet the posting guidelines.
Your thread must include a link to at least one reputable source. Most of the time, this should be a respected news site.
Your thread should also include quotes from the cited source(s). While you shouldn't just copy the entire article, your quote should give the reader a summary of the article in a way that gives the key details, but also leaves room for them to read the full article on the linked website. Please use quote tags to show that you have copied this content from another site.
The title of your thread must be relevant to the topic and should give a reader a good idea of the contents of the thread. Copying the title of the source is permitted but absolutely not required. It should be to the point and not be done in such a way as to mislead a reader, such as clickbait, etc.
If your article is about a product or some form of media, images are always appreciated, although they are not required.
Failure to comply may result in your thread being locked or removed without warning.
