Question about reviews

Is there any restriction on posting a review that's also been posted on other websites? I have a bunch of reviews on my blog that, me being a bit bored, I'd be willing to work into the HTML template and send to RPGamer. Is there any issue with this?

    I'll leave that up to omegabyte in the end, but blog reviews should be more reasonable to reuse than reviews posted to something like other competing sites.

    Jeremy keeps his reviews on a personal site, and I haven't seen anyone on staff complain about it. I don't think RPGFan takes reader reviews anymore, so if you're talking about reader submissions, your only other choice is GameFAQs and I'm not sure what omegabyte's rule is for that. I'd say the reviews on your blog are fine as long as you don't join the staff of a competing site at some point in the future and then resubmit all of them there.
    The lesson here is that dreams inevitably lead to hideous implosions.

    Like 7th said, as long as they aren't on a competing site it's fine. However you should be aware of our guidelines for submissions. If your review is too long, too short, very poorly written, poorly formatted, or otherwise incomprehensible, it will be declined.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...
