Hope Upbringer! (DragonFable)
Guide: Complete Guide to being an Average DragonFable Player
1. Guide Topic: Familiarising with the key parts of DF.
2. Why I feel this guide is essential: It helps people to understand about how DF works, and how, perhaps, to play the game best.
3. Do I wish my guide to be locked if not approved?No
4. Extra information or notes: NGON takeover.
Altough the guide seems good, there are a couple of reasons it cannot be approved.
First of all, spoilers. The whole storyline is pretty much explained there, at least alowing them to skip it completely and warning them that spoilers are right below the content list is a must.
Some people want to know how to arrange their stats and items without spoiling the story. Please use spoiler tags (inadvisable) or make sure a clear warning is given for spoilers.
Secondly, aside from explaining the story and stating the part of what the staff does for AE, you give little new. Classes are explained pretty well in their class guides, as you stated yourself, you made a farming guide so people looking for places to farm can much easier go to there. And stats are given as well for their classes. Quoting the rules for a guide to be approved:
5. Original content is absolutely necessary.
At MINIMUM, all guides must contain 75% original information and insight. There is no need for a reposting of information available elsewhere. Reposting of Encyclopedia entries, other guides, as well as the use of long developer/staff/member quotes in their entirety should be avoided if at all possible, and reposting sections of entries/short quotes should be used only to support individual insight and assessment. Guides that do not present original information cannot be approved.
I encourage you to look for ways to help people to get the hang of DF and be an average DF player. Linking the correct guides, Think of ways so people find DF more interesting and more easily feel connected to the game. Showing what DF has in store for the players. If you can do this, your guide has a bigger chance to be approved.
