Posted by Michael on 8 September 2007, 22:46 GMT

We are pleased to announce that Duncan Smith has joined the ticalc.org staff. Duncan will be the resident evil grammatist overlord, err, reviews editor. He will also be in charge of surveys and assisting with the site in general. Duncan is already rapidly gaining fame as having one of the most interesting staff biographies.

Will he actually write reviews, or just supervise them and make sure no inappropriate reviews are allowed?

Nope, not me. The pending queue was around 220, and now it's down to two.

Cool! I want to get a set of guidelines for writing reviews posted, so that they're all in a consistent style and I have to do only a minimal amount of reformatting.

I think that Bejewelled game should be featured in a small news. It's the first bejewelled game ever made on any calc model (just do a ticalc search on "Bejewelled" without the quotes and besides this new game you'll just find a weird BASIC clone that isn't even bejewelled) and graphics are pretty good. Gameplay seems also good as well.

Besides that, Idk for other news, I wonder if they alerady hired their new file archiver...

I have it on good authority that a new archiver was hired and summarily removed for some reason.

And Kevin, re: news, you thought up some good ideas two articles ago in Bowling, imo. :)

Yup, that's exactly what I meant, your suggestions from existing programs that you made in the Bowling thread here.

Click the url

This game is kinda like bejewled, but dosent have it in the name.

Anyways... ticalc should make a practice of featuring programs more often... POSSIBLY, oh possibly, EVEN CONSDERING user requests...

Eh, I and I know others have found that to generally be a negative influence on the featuring of their programs or game rather than a positive influence.

Well, maybe not generally, but sometimes....

*cough DoorsCS6 cough*

DoorsCS 6 probably should have been featured. Even if you think the GUI routines aren't very useful or you don't like that it takes up two app pages (I personally don't mind), it's still something that's pretty unique and is quite an accomplishment.

There were probably other programs too that should have been featured, but I can't remember them...hmm...was xLIB ever featured...?
