It was all a very basic idea. The share quantity of TF2 coverage was missing. Not from the lack of interest, but from the barriers that prevented coming or existing authors from providing that sought after coverage. The idea was to lower those barriers. Rather a few bad posts, than none at all.

The blog is open for anyone to contribute, in an easy and familiar manner: WordPress. There’s no applications, no knowledge of coding needed. You can just register an account, and type away. A moderator will check your post’s authenticity, and publish it swiftly. If you don’t sign it with your name or nickname, we will. More info can be found in the Guidelines.

(For the record, all info on this site will be open, and can be used in any articles on other sites)
