Instructions for submitting documents
You must submit your material in the form of articles that can be added
here (much like it's done on gamefaqs.com). There are only a few main
guidelines to follow:
1) You cannot submit an article that covers more than one e-Card series.
For example, if you want to submit material for the NES series and the
Pokémon-e cards, you'll have to write at least two different
2) You must contact me with your intention to write an article BEFORE
starting to work on it. If someone else is working on a similar article on the
same subject as yours, I'll let you know, and perhaps you and this other person
can compare notes, and maybe even deliver a single unified article. You may
also choose to ignore other people's work, and in that case, all submitted
articles on the same subject will be added here without restriction.
3) You must submit each article as a plain text file. MS-Word documents,
RTF files, PDF files, and all other file formats will be immediately rejected.
(Don't say I didn't warn you!) I will convert your text file in HTML myself
before adding it to this section.
4) If you have the equipment necessary to take your own screenshots
(namely a Game Cube, a Game Boy Player and a video-capture device) you can
include such screenshots with your article, and I will integrate them while
I'm converting your article into HTML.
5) Your e-mail address MUST appear somewhere in your article, so that
people with additional information can contact you. Of course, you can add
this new information to your article if you wish, and resubmit your updated
article to me. For that reason, it is highly recommended to keep a copy of
your original document (in plain text format) just in case you update it
in the future.
6) You are allowed to submit incomplete documents, if you are unable
to complete them without the contribution of other people. As stated above,
you can send me updates later.
7) You are NOT allowed to submit documents taken from other web sites
and/or written by other people. The documents you submit must be your own.
(Also, please don't send me links to documents on other web sites, because I
will not contact the owners of these sites for permission to use their
documents. If they want to see their documents in the Software Catalog section,
they will have to submit their material themselves.)
If you have any questions, let me know.
Just in case you're wondering, here are a few particular subjects I'd like to
see covered in this section:
- Instructions to all the mini-games and applications in the
Pokémon-e Expedition, Aquapolis and Skyridge series.
Some of those mini-games are hard to play without knowing how the controls
work, and there are no manuals available for those games.
- A guide to the Pokémon Battle-e cards (some recommended
battle strategies for each trainer, the information hidden from view on the
cards, the effects of the berries, etc.)
- A complete guide to the Super Mario Advance 4-e cards (more notably
the levels encoded on the "Level cards").
- Tips on how to beat the Animal Crossing-e mini-games.
- Tips and strategies to better your own score in the NES games. (A guide
for Excitebike-e would be especially welcomed, because I still can't
figure this game out...)
