Hello everyone, this guide should help a lot of new (and old) members who might not know how to format trophy lists and how to get points for them, so I've written this for all of you. If this might seem a bit daunting, trust me, it's not. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so please bear with me. First of all:
Make sure the list you're about to post hasn't been posted already
A lot of times people have posted a duplicate list, mainly since they haven't fully seen the respective forum and see whether or not that list has been posted. Always do this when you're about to post a trophy list.
How to post and format a Trophy List
Now, don't just go copy and paste a list from somewhere, and post it like that. No, you must use TSA's format for trophy lists, which quite frankly, is pretty sleek. Here's an example of a formatted list: http://www.thesixthaxis.com/fo…..-trophies/ First, note how all the values (Bronze, Silver and Gold) are in Bold, which help to really make it stand out. Next thing, which I'd say is the most important part of any trophy list: spacing. Now my preferred spacing is to first write the value in Bold, like I mentioned, then use the enter button once. Then, write the name of the trophy, then use Shift+Enter (Press them at the same time) to skip to the next line, where the trophy's description should be written. Then press enter again, and repeat all these steps until you reach the last bronze. After typing the last bronze trophy's description; press enter twice, then type the next value (In this case, Silver). I personally feel this is the best, as one press of enter feels insufficient, and 2 presses seem to be the sweet spot. Then, continue doing this until you reach the Platinum trophy's description. After that, leave a line, and mention your source. Best thing to do is to Copy+Paste the link from where you got it, and post it. That's it, you're done! Now, how to get your shiny TSA points!
How to get TSA Points for your posted Trophy List
Like how you post a news tip, use the 'Contact' button, at the bottom of the page, to send Nofi (The boss of TSA) an e-mail about it. Fill out the necessary details, and your 'Reason for Contacting' should be General Contact, then write in the subject line “x:xxxx Trophy List Posted” (where x:xxxx is the name of the game whose trophies you posted), and then in the body, provide a link to your list, and send. Now, it may take Nofi a while before he links your trophy list to this page: http://www.thesixthaxis.com/ps3-trophy-faq/ (He usually does an update every week or so, and likes to do it when he has 2 or 3 to link). Be sure to check the page once every two or three days to make sure it's been linked, and it hasn't been done in at least 12 or 13 days, send him a reminder e-mail . Then your trophy list should be linked, and you should have either 100 TSA points if you posted the list from a site on the internet, or 200 points if you somehow got an exclusive trophy list (Comparing trophies with someone, or if you have the game in question). If by chance you get your list linked, but didn't get points for it, don't be shy to send him another mail.
I hope this helped you on how to post trophy lists, and how to get points for them, so you can cash them in at the lovely TSA Points Store. Enjoy!
