Applications are closed.

Update: Applications are extended through October 15.
RS Writer Application Instructions

We are looking for a new RS writer. As a RS writer your job will be to provide your perspective on Runescape to our readers. You will be tasked with writing one article per month on a subject of your choosing. As a writer you should also be good with deadlines, as every article has a due date.

For your application please write a 1000 word general RS article on a topic of your choosing. Please note that if you are the successful candidate your application will be used as your first article.

Applications will be screened based on your forum standing in general and most importantly, level of competency with regards to the English language.

Some helpful hints:
  • Articles should not be a simple re-hash of a knowledge database entry.
  • A good article should introduce the reader to a new aspect of Runescape from your perspective or an existing area with a different perspective (your own).
  • Articles should not ramble. Be concise but descriptive.

Send your application to shane [at] rsbandb [d0t] com with the subject line: "Informer RS Application." Applications are due at 11:59pm MDT (UTC-6) on October 15.

Gaming Writer Application Instructions

We are also looking for a new Gaming Specialist. Your job will be to write articles about games you've played, review new games you play, and talk about gaming in general.

For your application we would like to write a 1000 word article about any game you have played this year. The article can be in the form of a review or it can discuss a certain aspect of the game that is interesting.

Applications will be screened based on your forum standing in general and most importantly, level of competency with regards to the English language.

Some helpful hints:
  • Articles shouldn't just be a narrative of the game's activities.
  • A good article should appeal to a wide variety of people, including gamers and non-gamers.

Send your application to shane [at] rsbandb [d0t] com with the subject line: "Informer Gaming Application." Applications are due at 11:59pm MDT (UTC-6) on October 15.

Well, if the deadline was a week later, I would write a review of Metal of Honor. But, since the deadline is in 3 days and the game comes out next week, I guess I'm out.

You realize that Medal of Honor isn't the only game in existence, right? xD

Is it really that much trouble to write a review on a different game, say on one you know well or play a lot?

I actually wish this was a week later, too. Kinda busy in school at the moment. But since the deadline is Friday, this gives me at least till 9:59 PM (UTC -8) to turn it in and I'll be out of class by 3 PM. Plus, I get Thursday morning classes off this week. Yay me! :D Not sure if I want to do it on Garry's mod or something else yet. :wink:

Shane, thank you for extending the deadline. I finished my app 3 minutes ago, and was about to start writing a persuasive e-mail asking you to accept it, even though it was a day late <3

I'm e-mailing you now.

Argh. Probably could have improved my review, but I guess I'll have to hope that what I put in is good enough now.

Just because an article isn't chosen immediately for the Guest Article doesn't mean it wasn't good enough, it just means Shane liked someone else's better.

You should still apply for Informer if you love writing ;)

Good luck all...You're gunna need it : P
