  • Wow, I actually might wanna do this!
    No I'm not gonna brag about being first, even though I know you're jealous. (sarcasm)

    • Do it! I enjoy reading your comments on the news stories, would like to see what you'd do with a story itself! Do it!

  • Narugoddessofwisdom

    I would apply but usually even when I search for new news someone else has found it first and posted it here

  • Majora

    I not so good at grammar and I don't have enough time to look up news.

  • Valdek

    hm mm, sounds great, i would, but i don’t know about finding the LATEST news, maybe something relatively new, with brand new things every once and awhile.
    I’ll think about it.

    Hey I just got finished looking at your jobs section, and if you have time to answer this question; Does this all take place online? I was just wondering because I absolutely love to write but I don't think my parents would appreciate me having to go places or audition and stuff. Also, another quick question, do some of these things require Skype or another sort of microphone-related system? Thank you for reading this, hope you can answer my question.

    • Skype is great, but not required. All of this does take place online – we have special forums for staff members where the work takes place 😉

  • APEXMAN

    I'm good at finding the latest news. I usually already know atleast a day beforehand about anything major.

    However i would rather just link it to you guys instead of having to write a whole article on it.

    • Well, then the Submit News button on the lefthand sidebar is just for you! 😀

  • I would have loved to do this if you had asked two months ago, but I am currently helping with a site called Flames of Hyrule.

  • aw9000

    I just applied and i really hope I get the job!

    I love this site and all the users on it. I hope to be of some help to you guys!
