If you're a gamer and would like to share your interest in gaming with others through writing, read on!

We are looking for a new Gaming Specialist as Kenny has left us. A successful applicant will have a strong grasp of the English language, be punctual, and most importantly own a PS3 or Xbox 360. The PS3 and Xbox 360 are our preferred consoles to own as they get most of the game releases first. Your application will be looked highly upon if you own one of the above mentioned consoles and one or more of these additional gaming devices such as a gaming PC, Wii, DSi, PSP, iPhone/Touch, etc... To show your proficiency with the English language we ask that you write a 1000 to 1500 word review on the most recent game that you've purchased. Be sure to include a general overview of the game with your review.

Along with your review we ask that you include the following at the top: real life name, forum name, location (country and timezone is fine), age, windows live messenger address, and past writing experience.

Please email applications to shane [at] rsbandb [d0t] com with the subject: Informer Gaming Application. If you are successful, the review you use in your application will be your first published work. Applications close at 12am RSBandB Time (UTC - 7/MST), 11pm PST (22nd), 2pm EST, 7am UTC on January 23.

To bad Kenny had to leave, but it's nice to get new people on the Informer. New writing styles. New everything. Good to to all the people who try out.

Darn. Wish I had an XBox 360 or PS3 so I could apply. But as of the moment, I'm only a PC gamer. Still, there's quite a few games I've played, though I'm sure there are many people here who would have no problem showing better qualifications for writing than me. Better switch over to that English major I've never really wanted. XD

I would apply but there's 2 things holding me back:
1) I can not write a decent article to save my life, and
2) I wouldn't be able to get on enough to write the articles.
Good luck to anyone who enters though.

I'd attempt to join, but my entry would probably be overlooked due to my quite large warning level. :(

I'd love to join, too.

It doesn't hurt to ask. And as long as you aren't banned, have good writing skills, and a desire than you should be fine.

I would enter but since I don't play enough I wouldn't have anything to write on.

Gonna send mine in later hopefully. I'm just hoping a certain incident won't cause a biased review. Who's determining who gets in? Is it one person or a group of people?

Quality of your article comes first. Other things will play a role such as forum record. Unfortunately what you are referring to is rather serious and would dampen your potential. Still, no reason to not send an application.
