Anyone else recently recieve an e-mail about a new FAQ book from CjayC?
From: aux | Posted: 10/22/2004 11:08:19 AM | Message Detail
I got an e-mail about GameFAQs and CNET working together on a FAQ book of sorts.

Anyone else get this e-mail?

Well, you are the only one with a walkthrough for Sudeki, so they asked you. Also, that System Notice looked perfectly real.

Why would anyone want to lie about it, anway.

My question for this would be, why on earth would GameFAQs use a guide for Sudeki in a book? Why would GameFAQs even need a book? No one buys books anymore, especially when you can get everything you need off of the internet.

I've wondered the same thing...

Why would they create a book that would be sold, when people can just get the guides for free off the site.

That's what makes this all the more strange. I'll say this though, if this is a hoax; it's an elaborate one.

By the way CJayC, it's somewhat unfair for the topic creator to not be allowed to still be a part of the experiment. Nothing in the system note suggested that he should have kept it a secret in the first place.

So it's real?

I guess that means the e-mails are real too.

I don't care if you use my guide for the book, go ahead. I just wrote the guide for fun anyway, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I don't understand all this secrecy though.

If deleting this topic will make things easier for the development of the book, then go ahead.

I didn't mean to cause any problems. I just wanted answers. And this seemed like the logical place to find them.

I wouldn't have given out the AIM if I'd known I wasn't supposed to.

I'll take down the pic from Imageshack, as soon as I figure out how.

I was wrong... weird. I do not really see a point to the book, but if this is going to buy some FAQs, making them unaccessable on the site, then the old heart of GameFAQs has become blackened for good.

Brian, how would you feel if your work was sold in a book? I know you have a lot of stuff that's Gamefaqs-only. Andrew does too.

I almost feel discouraged to finish my Gradius V/R-type Final FAQs... I don't want them to show up in some book. I really haven't felt worried about my work ending up anywhere I didn't want it to till now.
From: Overated | Posted: 10/30/2004 7:23:10 PM | Message Detail
I think people are jumping to some conclusions here. CJayC asking for some FAQs for a book doesn't mean that he's planning on exploiting FAQ writers for his own gain. First he'll ask you before using your FAQ so if you don't want him to then say no. Second the book could be used for some non commercial means like showing investors or banks for loan proposals or teaching preschoolers to read. Actually those options sound pretty improbable but so does trying to sell something that is free online in book form.

Actually, in the emails Ceej sent me, he said that my GTA FAQs that will be put in the book will still be available on this site. Hell, he even said I could still post them on other websites if I wanted to. So, it'll probably be the same for everyone else who got the emails like I did.
