How to Contribute

Do you like video games? Do you have something interesting to talk about? Write a blog post for us!

General Guidelines

The Daily SPUF is dedicated to topics regarding video games (especially Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, PAYDAY and Warframe) and the now deceased the Steam Powered User Forums. Other video game related things, as well as video game lore, reviews on movies, and events such as comic cons, are fine too, as long as you link to where you can find/buy/play/visit these items.

Articles can be as long as you like, but we’d recommend writing a minimum of 500 words and avoiding going over 2000 words. If your article is over 2000 words long, you may split it into multiple articles.

You can supply your own pictures, or if you don’t The Daily SPUF can supply them for you. Any other images must be credited and sourced! Make sure to notify us whichever option you want, either by contacting an editor or leaving annotations in your article. Also, please make sure that all images you use are hosted on the Daily SPUF. More information can be found here. If you use an image off another site, then please credit the creators of the image in a caption.

The following articles might provide some guidance if you want to contribute but can’t think what to write about:
