News Ticker Resurrected.

Post by aRJay » Sun Jul 20, 2014 7:10 pm

Sorry to disappoint you but this is not a competition, it is just a place for people to post any News ticker messages they think up as suggested in this thread and endorsed by Coops.
http://www.coreexilesforum.com/index.ph ... post-21186

However just to give yourselves a chance for your items to be picked up they should conform to the old competition rules, which I am going to add and amend here.

You all know about the Green Header News in game, things like:-

» Alex Dreyfuss ruled unfit to stand trial
» Religious leaders denounce historians on Jian
» Volcanic activity on Brandric causes panic

That kind of thing. These are fictitious headlines that help break up the other type of news items which are real-time events to do with you and your fellow Captains.

So this is an open ended competition to gain new headline news items to insert into the header between real events.

Rules:
Do NOT use any existing captains names.
If referring to a planet, system or star-base it must be a 'real' location in game.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check your spelling!
No use of Speech marks.
Length must not exceed 80 characters. - try using something like this http://charactercounttool.com
Do not edit new entries into existing posts - make a new post, or your edit may be missed.
Do not put anything other than your entry on the same line as your entry.
If you want to discuss entries or matters arising start a NEW thread.
As for content it can be about anything within reason, please remember we cater to a family audience.
The hardest part is making it fit! A headline in 80 characters is hard work :D
You may create fictional characters to report on, fictional places, ships, towns, countries, companies etc., but just not fictional planets star bases or systems.

UPDATE :

Due to the way the new header works we can now allow for LONGER injections of Humour and General Frivolity

So I have decided to extended the length allowed to 80. Lets have some new ones for this and who knows I might turn it back into a competition. Lets see what you can do with 80 instead of 50!

Added that one - the header code cuts them off it seems round 72 ish but the full snippet is included in the ISN news 2nd tab.
