==Background==
 
It is vital for PCGamingWiki to be a useful resource that keeps up to date with the latest releases. We need articles about the newest games at the time they are needed most - on the first week of release.
 
 
 
If new games aren't represented, PCGamingWiki won't be seen as ''the'' place to write up PC game fixes. Without up to date articles, the wiki will decline, and the dream of having ''every PC game fixed'' won't become a reality.
 
 
 
==The proposition==
 
In exchange for well-written articles completed on Day 1 of the release of a game, [[User:Andytizer|Andytizer]] is happy to reimburse or provide review codes of new games.
 
 
 
Sometimes developers and publishers will provide review code, but the majority of time, the cost of the new games will be paid out of [[User:Andytizer|Andytizer]]'s pocket. Therefore there is a strict policy on who will be able to earn these review codes.
 
 
 
==Job description==
 
*Take ownership of an article, writing technical details, and bugs, fixes and workarounds.
 
*Complete as much information as possible from the [[PCGamingWiki:Sample Article|Sample article]].
 
*
 
 
 
==Person specification==
 
*Show evidence of making high quality contributions to PCGamingWiki in the past.
 
 
 
==Review process==
 
*Eligible reviewers who meet the person specification can submit a request for review code of any new game to [[User_talk:Andytizer|Andytizer]].
 
*Requests should be made at least 5 days before the release of the game.
 
*Reviewer MUST complete the article within 24hrs of the game first going live in the first territory (for example, 24hrs from the US release of a game). This involves:
 
**Completing as much of the [[PCGamingWiki:Sample Article|Sample Article]] as possible, including filling out all the templates and tables.
 
**Researching and listing as many issues and fixes as possible on forums, FAQs and support lines.
 
*Reviewer MUST maintain the article and keep it up to date over the next 3 days.

*User is interested in
 
 
 
==Disclaimer==
 
*[[User:Andytizer|Andytizer]] reserves the right to deny free review code to anyone for any reason.
 
*If the reviewer breaks the terms of the agreement or is late, then [[User:Andytizer|Andytizer]] will deny future review code to that individual.
