    Why a story was removed

    Hello,

    If you frequent the PSU.com homepage, you may have noticed a story that went live today about Mark Cerny's career talk, the journey to PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation legacy.

    You may also notice that, as of this writing, that story has been removed.

    There's nothing sinister at work here; I just wanted to update the community on why it was removed, as we had several community members take time to leave feedback that this was old news.

    At PSU, we have a strict policy with regards to news coverage. Any story more than 48 hours old is never to be reposted on our site. Any story more than 24 hours old is highly discouraged from being posted; only the most absolutely urgent stories, which our content team staff failed to cover for whatever reason (real-life difficulties and responsibilities are common), are posted after this period.

    As commenters in that article pointed out, the Mark Cerny video was old--quite old, in fact, having surfaced on the Internet as early as June 27.

    The article, which was never intended to be published, was posted in error. The error took time to notice, but we promptly removed it as soon as technologically possible.

    Our content rules are in place to encourage staff writers and editors to post news in a timely manner, with enough leeway to allow for additional opinions and analysis to form. We are proud of this editorial approach, and even more proud of the exclusive stories that we take pains to break before any other outlet.

    Thank you for your understanding; I just wanted to update the community on this development, as members of our community took the time to let us know. Your readership and feedback is immensely appreciated, as always.

    Your friend,
    Kyle

    To lead on from what Kyle was talking about...

    Perhaps you haven't noticed, but there is a new shiney "submit news" button by the login area. If you click that you can send a quick email to the whole writing team giving news tips so that we can stay as up-to-date as possible. You guys are amazing news hounds, you find the latest most interesting stories and articles and you bring them here to post and discuss. If you were to hit that lil ole green button before you head off into the forums, and paste in that URL that you already have in your clipboard, then the content team has another potential article to write. This equates to more clicks, which means more PSU.

    It really is an amazing feature to have at the site and I'm not overstating the fact when I say this has the potential to really boost things up for PSU if enough people take the time to send that link.

    We will answer all tips. We may already have the tip, it may not be appropriate somehow, or we may be writing up an article now because of that contribution. In any case, your mails won't float off into the void without and feedback, there ought to be closure one way or another.

    If you send us a tip, be sure to include your forum nameso we can credit you in the article.

    Is there any policy regarding most of the stories being crap?

    Well I certainly have found stories NOT EVEN making it to PSU, so yeah sounds like PSU needs a few more news seekers with a little more time on their hands.

    well I've found it very informative, I think they do a great job. there will always be stories that are missed by websites, nobody has 24/7 to be on here even though the devoted once come close.

    That's partly why we implemented the Submit News button you see at the top of the page--every submission goes directly to our editor mailbox.

    It's also important to remember that 90% of PSU content team staff are volunteers--and damn hard-working ones, at that.
