I'm putting together an article for a popular UK chess magazine about typical mistakes players make during the opening. I'm looking for new material as I want to be original and not just rehash something that's been published elsewhere. If anybody has any games with any ineteresting opening errors I'd be happy to consider them for publication in the article. If I decide to use your game, I'll make sure you get a copy of the finished article in the magazine if you want it.
A few criteria as to the sort of thing I'm looking for.
1. It should be an over the board game, rather than an internet game ideally, and definitely not a blitz or rapidplay game. Please include relevant information such as players names, tournament, year etc.
2. The players ratings (at the time of the game) should ideally be less than about 1800. There's no lower rating limit if it's interesting!
3. I'm looking primarily for games where a player gets a bad position due to not really knowing how to handle their position. I'm not really looking for games involving simple tactical oversights.
If you'd like to submit a game for me to consider please send it to me as a message or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
You're obviously welcome to post the game here but I don't check these forums all that regularly and if the thread runs to a few pages I may miss it. I'll definitely let anybody who submits a game know if it will be used or not.
looking forward to it.

My games are useless, I have no idea what I'm doing lol. Just put my pieces where it looks like it will have potential later.
