I'm really glad PT has a Janice to live on. Kelsey has been doing an excellent job soldiering on alone.
I would appreciate some information about the relationship between slithering and the websites. What's the relationship? What is the editorial policy on review or coverage of slithering games?
Please consult each website's 'About Us' page for more information
as well as the Reviews Policy Kelsey linked. A lot of the information is copy/paste but it boils down to both outlets being under the Wargamer Ltd. umbrella, which shares common ownership with the Slitherine Group of companies. We're technically part of the 'group' but they've assured us our editorial independence.
With regards to Slitherine products specifically, we will cover them as we would anything else and add in a disclosure where necessary - usually only on articles that offer some kind of recommendation or similar context of a Slitherine product. I don't really think it's necessary to put it on, say, interviews, but we'll feel it out going forward.
Formal reviews will also have the added feature of bringing in a neutral third-party score, probably an aggregate of something like steam reviews, or the relevant app stores, or something like that. It requires a bit of dev work so we haven't been able to implement it yet, so any reviews from now until that point will have to do without (but they will still have the disclosure).
I plan to make the most of the situation - early access to Slitherine products, for example, get the news/reviews first... basically pass some kind of benefit on to you guys.
Hope this helps - let me know if you have any more questions.
