    Looking for volunteers

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Daniel, Jun 20, 2006.

    Okay, I'm looking for a few devoted people who are willing to help with the site.

    Firstly, I need someone to take charge of the ezine. I'd set them up with an email address for submissions and they'd basically be in charge of picking the best submissions and putting it together and editing it.

    Also, I need a few people to help moderate the forum.

    If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

    How often is the ezine and how many submissions in it? Also what else would go in it?

    Basically the ezine would be published monthly. Chances are we won't get one up until the end of July - that will probably be the first issue, but likely we'll release one like every 20th of the month (or to that effect).

    I have no idea how many submission we'll get, depends on the activity.

    The content of the ezine would:

    - 1-2 short stories. That's debateable.

    - 1 (maybe 2) poems.

    - An author interview. (I'm still not sure if the interview would be included with the ezine or separate altogether - probably both).

    - Announcements/Contests updates.

    That's basically it.

    I would be glad to help out as a moderator if you think that I am suitable for the job.

    Let me know if you still need any volunteers. I have a lot of free time on my hands and might as well use it well. Anyway, just let me know if you need an extra helper. Thank you.

    I would love to help with the ezine since no reviewers are needed at present.
    Do you still need help?

    I'd love to help with the ezine :)

    It sounds fun. Even if the editor position is already taken (as three others have expressed interest before me), I will definately send stuff to it, and would be excited to take part in it in anyway I could.

    What about a team of editors? Or an editor and a bunch of other writers / reviewers to get the stories together and go through submissions and stuff? It seems like a lot of work for just one editor to do :rolleyes:

    There are currently a small number of members already working on the Ezine. They are: Daniel, Cogito, Raven, Kit and myself.

    We have gathered articles and selected short stories/poetry for the issue but it is yet to be compiled into a proper format. It's therefore possible that if anyone has good experience in compiling newsletters and access to an appropriate program (something Adobe would be ideal), then we'd welcome you to send a PM to any, or all, of us and go from there.

    Actually, I'm not. I have made suggestions and minor contributions, but I knew I wouldn't have time to commit to it, so I didn't.

    I know, I know. But I thought if I left you out you might have been offended.

    Not at all. I just don't want to be seen as a "go to" person for eZine requests and issues! :)

    So, you're not looking for any more editors then? Just technical staff?

    EDIT:: I also do have a newsletter program, but it's not by abode. I'll PM you about it.

    Hi,
    I'm new here but would like to also volunteer to assist with the e-zine and/or the site. have web design experience, as well as great grammar and editing skills. I have also been published online myself (RPGTimes.net) and worked online on other similar venues (as a writer/builder/coder for a MU*, The Crimson Covenant).
