-------------------------------------------
Hello all. Currently we're looking for a sports and/or PS3 news writer, so if you are this person, let us know. Or if you know someone who is this person, let them know! Spread the word so we can find the perfect fit.

If you're reliable and have high quality writing, you're probably in. If you're not quite there, we can put you through the ringer a bit to bring you up to the standard you see in our news section. We do have limited time for this, however, so the less there is to do the better.

Reviewing is a possibility, too (coupled with your news duties). You would have to write with us for a long while first, though.

Required/preferred:

-experience writing about games, whether it be through blogs, another website, etc.
-quality writing, good grammar, natural talent
-enthusiasm for gaming
-reliable, dedicated
-ability to post at least a few news articles and/or editorials daily
-good sense of humor
-personality which comes through in your writing
-involvement in the gaming community at large i.e. forums, ability to find or create original news stories based on various info
-good design sense

If this is you, head here for additional details and contact info.

I have most of those qualities, but I live in Australia, so I suppose that rules me out.

I've spoken to chautemoc and it is fine for us Aussies to apply too

I have all of these qualities except for experience and involvement in gaming community at large (not to say I can't get involved though)...Illinois is eastern US, correct?

Illinois is central United States...it's smack dab in the middle! All too picky for a volunteer news writing position for the underdogs in my opinion.

I'll edit the post to clarify you can be from anywhere provided you can write from around 3AM-9AM PST daily. That, reliability, and having high quality writing are the main points -- everything else is secondary but can be very helpful.

Nagare, it's not volunteer.

'possibility to be paid' = not a paid job = volunteer writing to my understanding.

I would be happy to volunteer, but when school begins again, I will no longer be able to fulfill the position.. It would be best to find someone who can for a very very long time to come..

People, people, people. It says between 3am-9am PST. It doesn't say you have to live in the time zone. If you can simply make yourself available between those times. Which would be easier for folks that don't live there, because most of us are sleeping or working between those hours. I, however, have applied, and will probably be waking up extra early to do the writing, if I am hired.

Anyway, what I'm saying is; you don't have to live in the time zone. you can be from anywhere, as long as you are available at those times, and you are a good writer.

EDIT: Unless I'm completely wrong...in which case correct me, chautemoc.

A quick note to anyone who's applied: we've been very busy so apologies if we've not gotten back to you yet. Hopefully we'll be able to soon.

Also unfortunately we've had to move this back to a volunteer position, so if anyone would like to retract their app, we understand, just let us know via PM or email.
