    What the F--- is a Platform Title?

    I'm thinking of posting a story soon, but with a story headline and caption also available, I just can't figure out what this is for ...

    (Especially considering you can only fit 18 characters.)

    Platform title is like the main headline. the story headline is more like a byline or quick sentence about the game.

    For example:

    The University of South Carolina Sucks Donkey Dick (Platform title)
    - SEC perennial cellar continues to suck hard. (Story headline)

    Haha, that's what I thought ... but the website is only allowing me to type 18 characters. So in your example, it'd read, "The University of ..." Doesn't make sense. Are you sure it's not like this?

    The University of South Carolina Sucks Donkey Dick (Story Headline)
    - SEC perennial cellar continues to suck hard. (Story Caption)

    although this^^^ is hilarious, i think you might be a tad off. if you try to creat a story out of nothing...there is this random Platform Title thing that you have to fill out. have also wondered what this is. i usually just put like Dad Life PS3 or something.

    in addition to the platform title, there is headline and caption.

    weave, is this correct?

    Ego's right. When I posted the Heisman article last week, it asked for this, and I just put the word "Heisman" in space given. I think it's like a keyword or something.

    I wrote a kick-ass article for the bye week, but lost it in my Mac's Safari suckatude. I'm fucking pissed and now on writer's strike until after my next game. Which begs the question, when are all you SOBs playing? ;)

    Just installed it ... thanks again!

    AG, I know that you suggested posting more recruiting news throughout the year, but couldn't that cause a problem? For instance, if I'm recruiting a kid (slightly under the radar) who I love (and no one else here has seemed to notice the kid), wouldn't that bring some dangerous attention his way? Perhaps I'd be better to wait until he commits?

    I typically only post commits or guys I know will commit - guys I have huge leads on. Sometimes, I'll post a good battle between me an another user, just for hype.

    But there's no reason to call attention to yourself if you think a situation is still up in the air.

    Could someone explain how to save video highlights from a game? I thought a I did it last time, but it seems as though only the photos got uploaded.

    Edit: VT, thanks for the PM explaining this. For those who don't know, you have to wait until the very end of a replay before the option to save it is presented.

    Can anyone explain how you make/take your own pictures?

    AG, your pictures from the Marshall game are pimp.

    Go to the same place you go to save highlights. Instead of hitting X to view the clip, hit square, and it will take you to the replay. Move forward, back, change camera angles - do whatever you feel like to get a good shot. Click R3, and you got your pic.

    I created 5 video highlights at the end of my last game. Afterward, I went on EA to write my article and messed around with what pictures/video to include. I now can't find my videos. Should they still be available? If so, how do I access them?

    Is there a way to save a replay mid-game? As in, when you know you won't be able to at the end of the game because it won't be available?

    Yep. Just hit pause and go to the create highlights option. You can save any play if you do it right away.

    Yeah I am concerned about Michael Flyod he should be coming off an injury but it may say questionable, if that is the case can you manually insert them into the game?
