Currently Seeking: News Staff

Currently Seeking: News Staff - 04/22/05 01:19 PM

Well it seems that our news has been a little lacking lately so it's time to seek more people to post tech news...

The job role of news staff is to post approx 10 news stories per week (shouldn't be too hard, I can wander to cnn and snag about 5 right now).

A note to anyone who wants to someday be a moderator here, News Staff is step one.

How to apply? First fill out the Job Application and then respond to this post and I'll review the information accordingly.

We are also in the process of compiling a news resource list (large names in news publishing) that everyone (reguardless of status) can view here

Any questions?

If you have an application in already then you do not have to fill in another.

Also, formatting of stories is as follows:
1. Post 2-3 paragraphs of the story (up to 10, you don't have to post the entire thing; keep in mind that it is relayed to the main page.
2. Post a link back to the source of this story (to the news post at the place you just took it from).
3. Do not comment to the news story in your news post; instead, respond to it (I'm sure none of you have issues with mass posting on your own threads, you do it all the time).

As for bish, you've been added with the ability to post in the tech news section.

UGN is a news site meaning that it always needs people to post news. Two new news staff members is great, but more is always better.

lol... We are slightly picky about who is staffed; first the user has to at least be *active* for a period of ~2 months lol... then off there we have to see if anyone thinks they're a flipping idiot lol

Re: Currently Seeking: News Staff - 07/12/05 12:44 PM

to err is human.
to forgive is the essence of EndGameness...

this is about the post in Tech News Digital Geek?
are you telling me in ur 429+ posts uv never made a mistake?

il admit iv made more mistakes than most (just check the Boneyard, most of my original posts ended up there) but if u read my posts on the site im always the first to admit when im wrong and offer an apology for my stupidity/ignorance.

[Removed by Gizmo: If you're going to argue with staff do it in a non-public forum]

so lay off a simple mistake, point it out to me and il do my best to make sure it never happens again.
