There is still not a universal Template for the Community Articles, but there should be one to unify our Articles a bit.

I'll make an example how this Template can look like, so that it's easier for everyone.
The system will ten auto-inject this Template into every new Post (Article) here.

You can make suggestions how the Template can be made better.

Example: (like currently on the Front Page)

Why wouldn't you just say something like "According to xyz" or "xyz describes their game yzx as", etc.
It is in poor taste to leave a "sea of links" at the bottom for a professional news article.
I'd also say the trailer should be higher up (after the break, maybe) to keep people interested. Screenshots and videos towards the beginning interest people more.

Maybe at Wikipedia, sure.
For a direct quote (which is the only kind allowed! read the rules) you say who it's from, maybe when it was stated, then link it like this:
XYZ said last Friday that their game is"omgz best game ever" and that "it totally pwns".

For a paraphrase, yeah, it goes at the end, but Dev said direct quotes only.

Wikipedia is following a standard citation method, which is not necessary for this kind of article, because it's not a scientific article.
The point with that is to have references to your source of information.
An TPT front page article like this is more about personal view of a game or application, and not science.  :)

Writing a proper scientific article is a pain tho :)
If you wanna learn more you could look up Harvard Referencing or Vancouver system (latter is used for medicine/biomedical papers)

Lets keep the flash video at the bottom (see the Darkness post at the front page now, mainly because the flash plugin often takes some time to load in most browsers (firefox, safari)

I've injected the stock template for this.
Now new posts here will have this template automatically, just replace the text, pictures.

Still open up for improvements.
