We're looking for at least two new writers this time around. If you like writing this is your chance to share your opinions with us and ultimately the rest of RSBandB if you're successful. Applications aren't hard, they're quite easy and have the potential to be game changing.

If you're interested we'd like for you to write us a RuneScape based article. We ask that your article be at least 1000 words long, but no more than 2000 words. The article can talk about anything in RuneScape. Please note that articles that are simple in nature such as a how to guide or why you like a certain skill will receive less points than an article that provokes thought amongst readers.

Once accepted you will be asked to write one article per month. Article schedules are announced at the beginning of the month and we are almost always flexible with deadlines as long as enough notice is provided.

We are also wanting to have another writer to write about games! Gaming is a dynamic topic ranging from the different platforms to the types and eras of games. Gaming articles from this point forward will be handled much like tech articles. This means that we will be focusing on the wider aspects of gaming, not just reviews of new games.

We would like to write at least 1000 but no more than 2000 words on a gaming topic of your choice. Keep in mind the vast gaming industry, you don't have to talk about a single game or console.

Please PM your articles to either King Kulla or myself. If you require images in your article please include them using bbcode as you would on a forum post. The article submitted by the successful applicant(s) will be used as their first Informer article. Articles must be received by the end of the day on August 13th.

This is why we need better writers. xD

I'll give it a shot. Need to come up with a good article topic, though. :(

Can you write and submit both articles or just one out of curiosity?

Yes, that's why Shane got me to do the proofreading. :D

If you want to apply for both positions, you're more than welcome to. If you're successful, then we'll take the best looking app of the two and put you in the position of that app that you were trying out for. That's a bit ambitious of a task though, we'd much prefer you to take your time and focus on writing one top notch app rather than 2 mediocre ones. Always quality over quantity. :)

True. But there is enough time to do a really good job at both. Just saying. Plus, I'm bored anyway. :P

I'll be entering, again. I'll do both too, there's 2 weeks at it, and I'm on holiday, so why not?

Just a reminder to everyone that the deadline is in 3 days. If you haven't started yet, now might be a good time to! Make sure you have fun with your articles, and if you get stuck, remember that writing about something you enjoy is almost always easier than writing about something that you have little interest in. :)

Finished my article a couple of days ago, I've just been proof-reading and refining since. I intend to send it in tomorrow, if all goes well. I've only written a Gaming article. This is the subject I'm most interested in, and I figured it would best to do a really good job on one than write two mediocre articles.

One question. Does BBCode work on informer? I.e. Can I use BBCode to add Urls to my article?

We use html but that's not an issue since you can just take text you type and paste it in.

For the purpose of the application just use bbcode.

Make sure they're both good. If they're subpar as a result of writing two you will receive no sympathy. Quality > quantity.

Can I submit something I wrote awhile ago that was published, or do I have to start all over and submit something new? :P
