WS is hiring for our Newspaper project

Post by Elloa on Sat Mar 24, 2012 3:48 pm

To be sure we are able to start this relatively ambitious project and do it good, we need to know who is interested by taking a role and contribute in a way or another.
Depending of how many we are, we will build our project, or completly give it up.
as stated in the thread Newspaper, Ideas and Suggestions, we really don't want to start up a project to halfly do it, or give it up two month later. We do it good, or we don't do it.

You can take several roles.


reporter : A reporter is not a writter, but can obviously also be a writer. A reporter is someone very active in game, very present where there is action, and who know what's going on. His mission is to gather information and transfer it to a writer that will proceed the info into an article. The reporter will also check the finished article to see if it match with his testimony.

Example : Joao is ganked by a guild in the starting zone, and is witness of a large and aggressive action from this guild. He ask arround him what exactly is happening, try to have the point of view of a ganker and a victim. He will then report to a writter what happened and teh writter will writte the news.

The style of his report do not matter, but it must contain clear, valid and complete informations.
A reporter can also report events that could be interesting for an article, but need more informations. Writters can then organise a deeper investigation and send other reporters to complete the subject with more informations.
Reporters will also be in charge to take screenshots of the event they are witnesses.


Writer : the writer is not a reporter, but can obviously be also a reporter. A writer is someone motivated to write article. He doesn't need to be very active in game, but need to be quick to proceed an informations, and relatively talented at writting. A writter also need to be able to know when his article will be to hollow due to a lack of solid informations, and must be able to give up his text, or complete it with an additional investigation.
Some writer need to be well introduced in the community and be able to gather interviews of players and guild leaders.

A writer can also write bigger articles. Guides, stories, articles, reports, and whatnot...anything either related to the game OR related to the life of our server. Bigger articles aren't sheduled, but if they are well made, they may add something very special to our Newspaper.


Proofreaders : This is certainly the most boring job, but it will extremly needed. Proofreaders are persons with an excellent knowledge of english and good ability to spot mistake. Their mission is to avoid Whitestar to be covered of shame while presenting a Newspaper filled with mistakes and typos.


Graphist : Will be in charge to take care of making screenshot looking nicer, and the design of the Newspaper page.
They will also be in charge to make attractive commercial to promote our Newspaper

I've chosen writer (news and bigger articles) and reporter (would see myself more as an interviewer). I'll also help Karn with the graphic stuff when needed Smile.

I can write casually (well more like funny / silly / surreal Wink ) and proofread English (I worked in Canada for a couple of years, did some technical writing amongst other stuff)

I am quite pressed for time and not creative at all, but if it is needed at some point I can do proof-reading I guess Smile

That and I will keep my eyes open while playing of course (some say that even makes you play better!)

I can be a grammar nazi and will try to hone my drawing skills a bit before I can say whether I'll try to add a TERA-relevant comic section to the paper. I want to challenge myself a bit - this will indeed be a challenge if I go ahead with it.. I have made a rough plan-out for the 1st comic issue. I'm not sure I'd be able to come up with random general TERA comic situations on a weekly basis.. so I've thought of following a few characters play their story.. and then maybe once a month do a ''random OH don't you just HATE THAT ZONE / RACE / whatevs and make a joke out of it''

Either.. I'll be on a lookout for a new ''drawing kit'' this week. hope I find something I like

*EDIT* - Ideas for a future comic section is very much appreciated
