View Full Version : TSG newspaper spot!

03-25-2009, 01:08 PM
I have gotten permission to write a newspaper article for my local newspaper and have chosen to write it about TSG! I would like permission, some pictures to use, and some writing ideas to use. Thanks!

(I would elaborate more, but there isn't much to say other than what i did :/)

Yay, good job bobo :)

03-25-2009, 02:06 PM
OMG good job!

For the image... It must be something about Mother/Earthbound because that's the next marathon.

For the text... I don't know really.

PS: When you'll have the Newspaper, can you scan the article and post it on the forum? I'd like to see that.

You should mention the upcoming Mother marathon and the good cause.
Maybe also the money TSG have collected in former marathons and something about the history of the Mother series.

Sweet bobo you sure know how to promote. Just hope to run through the article here before you get it published. ;)

03-25-2009, 03:59 PM
Awesome, bobo! I hope your newspaper article goes well. Just as much as my Current Events did. Nice work. ;)

For the image, I was thinking the one with them *almost* them all in their St. Judes shirts. I would like permission to use it, though

03-25-2009, 04:34 PM
What if you got them to take a more recent picture of themselves

03-25-2009, 05:15 PM
I dont know, they are busy people.

Sorry to bump and necro-post, but I have been working on this and it has been coming out nicely. Before I send it in, can anyone think of anymore important details I have the site, the causes, the total amount raised so far, the fact that it s international, ect.?

Also, I lack an mage still...

Have you described the experience of joining them on their site during the marathon? Being able to suggest shenanigans for them and talk to them live is actually quite entertaining. A lot of people enjoy it even if they've never played the games. Having over a thousand people in the chat at once is a pretty big feat, and they're really just regular people that decided to try something. It's pretty inspirational.

bobo at the end you have to make sure you have the words

".....blue blue everything blue..." _awesome_

Here are a couple of things you could include, though you may want to increase the total donation after the Mother Marathon :P.

-TheSpeedGamers has completed 10th marathon(I'm including the Mother Marathon), 7th which were for a charity.
-TheSpeedGamers have raised over $22,000 for various charities.(not including Mother Marathon)
-TheSpeedGamers play the games along with a person commentating the game and the chat.
-There is a chat below the video feed where viewers will interact with TheSpeedGamers and other viewers.
-TheSpeedGamers have been giving out prizes for multiple reasons during marathons
-TheSpeedGamers are based in Arlington, Texas
-TheSpeedGamers were founded in January of 2008.

^I thought it was March 2008. Or was that just for the 1st marathon, not in General?

Also Bobo, include how the forums are GREAT, and being a member is easy.

05-10-2009, 10:34 PM
Include past donation ammounts and charities, use the tsg logo, future and past marathons, and... well the rest has already been said.

TBH I wouldn't make the main picture the Mother marathon as many people wouldn't have heard of Mother, as opposed to MGS or FF. But good job anyways Bobo, and good luck!
