Midnight Post - Weekly YPP Newspaper - Recruitment Call!

Ahoy!

After much chatting and discussion on the old thread: http://www.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=3610, but i think it's time the game community work together to bring this up for everyone! Thus, with the blessings of the ringers, I'll be customising a backend for just such a purpose.. For a newspaper! Probably weekly in nature, with all the sections that ye can think of and more!

I'm now seeking like-minded individuals to help me put this into action!!

Will need:
Reporters, Journalists, Columnists, Comicists, Paparazzi crews.. anyone who can contribute content
Reviewers: Looking through submissions and maintaining a high standard of articles
Graphic Designers: For creating piratey images to put on the newspaper

And anyone who thinks they can contribute to the project in one way or another, especially the wonderful pirates out there who can brainstorm on new and novel content!

Status of the project: Backend in place, customisation in progress

So please contact me at raymes@alucinari.com over the weekend and let's get the work off the ground!

Regards,
Raymes

P.S: Apologies for double-posting, but i've been told that posting in an old thread means the recruitment call post might be difficult to find ;)

Re: Midnight Post - Weekly YPP Newspaper - Recruitment Call!

I hate you so much. I was just about to post a suggestion for a newspaper, too! Darn!

If anyone here ever visited www.homestarrunner.net back when it was open (it's closed now, to my knowledge), in the forums I ran NetBeat, the newspaper published Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. It was successful...until the forums fell down go boom. :-(

I'd be willing to be a proofreader/editor/publisher on this. Send me an IM, I don't use e-mail for much anymore, so that wouldn't help...

Well I already have a comic setup, so a link or a spot would do fine :).

Oh boy.

I love to do anything involvin' words 'n puns, so sign me up straight away for columnist, since I'll probably have a little more time for that than the others, which could be a little more time zone dependant.

I give bad, I mean good advice so I could be a columist or a reporter, or even a journalist.

I studied in journalism, so I can help out.

I was thinking of having interviews with Y!PP celebrities.
