3,000 down, 2,000 more to go...

I hit the 1,000 mark for wiki editing points the other day, and I must say, it's MUCH nicer to be able to edit entries without moderation now. Especially nice for simply grammatical/spelling corrections and such. I'm looking forward to hitting the 5,000 mark and being able to add things without moderation, but I'm also worried I'll be too overzealous in adding content, particularly relating to iDevices and touch screen gaming. It seems that GiantBomb isn't quite as focused on the video game industry and technology as a whole as it is on specific consoles and games. For instance, trying to add concepts like the "App Store" or "stylus" are both not allowed, despite having a huge impact on gaming (especially the app store). Or adding an entry for "iDevices", which is an extremely common new term in referring to the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad, was also declined.  So far it seems pretty inconstant as far as what is allowed and what isn't. My goal is simply to add as much gaming related content as I can, particularly to the cutting edge mobile platform genre. Lets hope I don't get in trouble for doing this!
