I assume you'll have to start again, I'm afraid, since the winning entries will be published. The same article can't be published multiple times.

For this purpose yes, something new. Also if you do have a previous/current place where you're writing please include a few words about it in your application. Typically we like our writers to only publish to Informer and personal blogs/websites.

We are also wanting to another writer to write about games!

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. :)

Finished my Runescape article. Just about done with the Gaming article. I'll have them in by tomorrow.


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

Confusing and seemingly contradictory!!!

I sat down and wrote them on separate days, not the same day. I put equally good work into both of them as well as proofread and revised each one closely and with care. I feel good in saying they are both good articles. My aim wasn't to write for quantity, but present two good quality articles on two separate topics for two separate positions.

Shane's just far more blunt, but he essentially said the same thing I did. We'll still take the best one and put you in that position. I'm looking forward to reading them, as well as all of the other applications! :)

Thanks. :) I currently write for a rs business newsmagazine (I own all rights to my content for the sake of publishing) But I can definately write something new up. I love writing and I will send in an application. :)
