Post Article Writers Needed
This may or may not be more appropriate as a thread in the "Site" forum, but I figured I'd start here. One of our primary goals with WMB 2.0 should be to provide a consistent stream of updates on the main page. One post per day, at least. Again, these will range from WMB Initiative news, to General Zelda news, to weekly features such as a "Fan Art Spotlight," to what's going on with our Affiliates.

I can't do this alone, however. To put it briefly, how many of y'all are willing to chip in on this end? I'm not proposing that we each individually compose one news post per day, but rather two or three per week.

I'd be able to post a newspost like once a week, but not three or four times considering school and work cover most of my days. You should probably move this to The Site or something. Back in the old days of WMB, you'd get into the Writers group by posting newsposts and content to the site, and I'm sure a few active members may want to hop on this.

I'll help if you need it, but I'm not sure how good, I'd be, so... I guess it'll depend on how many people you need and how many people put themselves forward. Will it be like each person had a subject they post about, so one person does Zelda news, another does news on the initiative...?

Make it double....with these exact words.

I could contribute as well. As long as I get a Monday timeslot for article posting. Every other day is swamped with my social life as well as job hunting so I could type up an article on sunday and submit it Monday morning, Other than that I really can't do anything else.

Why didn't I notice this thread before? I can help out as well. My vocabulary may not be as big as I wish it to be, but I may still be able to put something readable together when needed. To top it off, I'm almost always available, so if people would be busy, I could almost always jump in.

That'll work. Feel free to focus on posting Zelda-related news. Many of these articles will involve giving attention to neat fan creations like these, as news pertaining to future titles is currently pretty scarce. If you'd like to post more analytical Zelda-related news posts, though, that's fine, too. In fact, I'd almost prefer that. Your call, though.

As a DeviantArt member, you could be in charge of the weekly "Fan Art Spotlight" feature, if you'd like. These articles would be posted either every Friday or every Saturday, and would essentially involve you going through the list of Midna-related fan art uploaded within that week. To put it simply, you'd just choose a favorite piece and write an article about how awesome it is. Just remember to acknowledge the artist responsible, and to keep it relatively clean. :lol:

Depending on whether or not we launch WMB 2.0 sometime before we're half-way through our Mass Playthrough (which begins tomorrow -- Thursday), you could describe your personal experience through various news articles.

If, however, it takes another two weeks for us to launch the new site, then toss that aside, as we'll be neck-deep in the Playthrough by that point. S'pose you could post one ginormous article once the MP is finished. :P

Try to focus on starting your own weekly features, wherein you discuss various Zelda-related topics. Or Midna-related ones, if you're feeling up to it. This applies to all of us (I know that I didn't give either Freeze or LLM a specific mention, but you two are more than welcome to hop on board, too =P). Just try to get creative, and have fun with 'em.

By the way, here are the images that will represent each of our news categories. Thanks a ton, Cryzeu!

Cool, when do I start?! I think Friday slot sounds good - someone else might need a weekend day.

Also, those images are amazing! Especially the affiliates one, that's so cute ^_^

We'll start as soon as WMB 2.0 launches. Technically, we could start now, but I'd rather showcase all of these new features at once. Plus, using WordPress will make it much easier to update the site. Frankly, I find it extremely difficult to publish a news post on the current site.

Okay, but even so, I'm still going to search through deviantART. Y'know, practice.
(By the way, do we have an estimate of when 2.0 launches?)
