We at “Game Devolution” want you to know that we take our responsibility to provide you with correct information and follow a strict fact-checking policy very seriously.
Fairness in all of Our Content
The audience’s trust is the most important thing for any journalistic outlet. The only way for trust to be established and maintained is via accurate, fair, and balanced reporting. We must stay committed to ensuring the highest possible accuracy in all our content. Our notion of “due precision” requires conformity with a minimum standard and general satisfaction.
We strive for precision by considering the specifics of the information at hand and the context in which it will be given, the background knowledge of the target audience, and so on. We always do our best to offer an accurate description of the news that can be backed up by those directly involved. We approach claims with doubt, ask questions of assumed truths, and argue against conventional wisdom.
As much as we’d like to eliminate all ambiguity, there will always be some. However, there is a distinction between “soft” and “hard” stories regarding the requirements for verifying facts. If one were writing on the successes of a non-governmental organization (NGO), one would require a different set of sources than one writing an investigative piece.
To guarantee the accuracy of Our material, we follow the advice provided below:
Every single one of our announcements is backed by solid evidence and only comes from reliable sources. When no primary sources can be found, we must give credit to the website from whence the story originated.
If a claim, accusation, or fact is attributed to a government agency or a source that we suspect has motives beyond reporting the truth, we make every attempt to verify it. Therefore, we explicitly state that we do not endorse and reject any claims, allegations, or other material that we cannot confirm for ourselves.
To the best of our knowledge, all the data we offer here is correct. Once we become aware of an inaccuracy, we update the piece as soon as it is practicable and send out an appropriate notice to our readers.
The trust of Our readers is crucial to us. Therefore, We strive to provide the most accurate information possible without omitting relevant details or inventing anecdotes. Moreover, when substantial factual inaccuracies are brought to light, we try to rectify them as soon as possible properly and transparently.
To ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity to bring to light any mistakes or misinformation they see on Our Website, we have included a “Suggest A Correction” section at the end of every report we offer and publish.
Our reporters’ core responsibilities include gathering information, composing reports, and verifying accuracy. One or more of Our editors carefully reads and reviews each piece after it has been subjected to a thorough fact-checking process as part of Our internal process. Each component in this procedure must be thoroughly inspected. It’s worth noting that the seniority of the editors who evaluate stories before they go live on the website varies depending on several factors, like the difficulty and sensitivity of the topic and the time constraints of the publication schedule.
We always try to contact everyone who may be affected by an accusation. Then, to ensure the best possible outcome, we verify the submitted information and the required information on our own.
Information Sources for Our Content
- We diligently source material according to the stated guidelines:
- Always double-check your facts with two independent sources.
- If there is only one source, then all of the claims made by that source must be true.
- Instead of blindly trusting others, always check the facts with the written word.
In the case of a survey, it is Our duty to detail the methods used for data collection and analysis. If there is any chance that Our Data will not generate accurate results, we will make sure to alert the public as soon as possible.
The purpose and intention are to get correct information immediately away, rather than making the information public first and then clearing up any lingering issues.
If you need information or quotes from credible sources, ensure your interactions with them are on the record. Find a way to use such sources that will allow you to provide as much information as possible about them to the reader so that they can evaluate the credibility of the information they are reading. Please provide context when citing an anonymous source.
Distribute your citations to Editors and reporters have access to the resources they need to evaluate if and how to use the material at hand, thanks to our editorial staff. Reporter and editor conversations should be reflected in anonymous quotes.
Short conversations with sources about how to best use the information they supply are essential, especially if they lack extensive media engagement expertise. It is important to clarify whether a source wants information to remain “off the record,” “on background,” or in some other status if they desire it.
Provide sources with an opportunity to react to stories that may portray them badly, and let your readers know what measures we take to reach out to them.
Seek out not only influential and well-known sources but also those with less of a public profile.
If you find yourself in a bind or unable to make a decision, it’s best to consult a senior resource or the head of the newsroom at Game Devolution.
Content Created by Users
There are inherent flaws in user-generated content. We do not blindly rely on the information given to Us and, depending on its intended application, we take appropriate steps to verify its veracity. When a lobbyist or someone else with a vested interest in the subject provides information, we proceed with caution. To avoid any confusion, we clearly designate any information that was created by the public. And we always follow these guidelines:
Trustworthy-looking online sources of information may or may not always provide correct information. Finding out who runs the website and making sure the information relevant to them is legitimate could be necessary.
The line between reality and hearsay is drawn very clearly. This is especially (though not exclusively) the case with content shared on social media, where errors or rumours can quickly go viral across the globe in a matter of minutes despite corrections’ inability to achieve the same speed due to the sheer volume of the audience and the ease with which they can be disseminated.
More research may be needed if evidence is being drawn from a social media site or another online source. Our company qualifies and identifies all data that was not collected by our company.
