Newspaper - Finalisation

Post by Elloa on Thu Apr 05, 2012 1:54 pm

Title
Samael News


Publications

Samael News will follow this model :
  • Flash news + Image of the week + Question of the week on Monday
  • Other articles, when they are written


Newspaper will be promoted :
  • Twitter (Whitestar - SamaelNews)
  • Server Forum
  • Uberchar (Whitestar - SamaelNews page- Samael page)
  • Whitestarguild.com



Weekly publication will allow us:
  • To cover all news fast enough in a Flash news thread
  • To have a regular publication, well known by the public. Every Monday they will have their news.

To have the extra article published when we want, will allow us:
  • To not stress about a date, to be more flexible
  • To be able to publish a long article concerning a special event right after it happened
  • To encourage readers to follow us and come on our blog more regulary


Special edition
Special edition will be created in future if our Newspaper is succesful. Those special editions will be edited with lot of care on a PDF format, and will gather different longs articles.


Graphics – Style
Klaudyna and Michal have taken care of this, and have done a awesome work.

Focus
We will need to focus on the community. Not on us, and not on the game (well not directly). Our focus need to be the guild, the players, the events that happen on our server, and any other articles will be fillers. There is many very good fansite speaking about the games mechanics. But none for now is focusing on a "server" community. If we do this the proper way, we can have a lot of success.

Rubric – Subjects

Every Monday :
  • Flash News : gather a serie of very short news (lenghts 2, 4 lines)
  • The Image of the week : selected among the images send by the readers
  • The Question of the week : a question asked to diferent random players. Can be about any subject


Other articles
  • News : speak about an important event that happened
  • Politics (monthly) : speak about the elections of the month
  • Interview of player
  • Presentation of a guild
  • Adventure and explorations
  • Stories/Comics



Library of articles

To help our organisation, it would be nice to have some articles written in advance. If one week we do not have the time to write as many articles as we should, or if there is nothing that happened, we will always have 1 or 2 articles in our reserve to help us.
If you have any idea, feel free to write something about it.


Our first numero !
Check here


I think we can start with this. If we are enthousiast and motivated. If we have other writters joining us, we still can improve this Journal. But to start with, I belive it’s complete enough. Now we just need to do it, and to not fail.
I think we absolutely need to hold it for one full month (4 publications) even if we meet no success before to take a decision, changing model or anything else.
This Journal will also requiere us to promote it a lot.

Please, continue to share your ideas. This project is an ambitious project, and can be always improved !

I like the idea, but would like to suggest a title to the project:

Tera News or <server name> news, although we could always name it with the day of publication, in Portugal we have a "journal" that is always published on Saturdays and it's called "sabado" which means Saturday in Portuguese.

Klaudyna and Michal are currently working on our Newspaper design. As it will be a blog, the design is restricted by the blog structure.
They will propose something very soon.

For the first numero, I'll take in charge :
  • Question of the month : How have you experimented Tera release? (That's my rubric, seriously I'm too enthousiastic about it)
  • Guild of the Month : Sleeping Forest.
    I'll write the Sleeping Forest article in advance.


We need all help we can get! All feedback possible! Share your advice!

is there going to be any release parties like in other games?
if so we should speak a bit about how they worked out, it would mean some investigation work to find some articles about it.
Also it would be nice if we had a section with the latest patch notes.

Blog project

This is Klaudyna and Michal work so far. I'm really happy and exited about the result. Good job for both of you!


Concerning the layout:
I don't think we need to much "stuff" on the right page. I'd rather have more articles there too, if it possible.
Isn't possible to have the "archive", "about us" and "link" in the menu above?
to keep the two pages really focused on news and stuff like that?
What is your opinion about it?


Concerning the banner : really awesome concept. But while I found the covers perfect on their own, here put together, it look a bit messy, because of the background. I'd suggest to find a way to blurry the background, or make it darker, or whatever...so the character would be seen better.
Also maybe (but here I'm really not sure), have a different color theme for each. For example the Aman cover which is very red, with the purple Elf female, and the blue male castanic. Or something like that...


But once again, thanks for this amazing job!

Then again it's only a suggestion.

Did some proofreading, corrected a few things that seemed wrong to me ^^ Might have missed some aswell D:

"Samael News is informative, as any other Newspaper in the world, but is also a tool to be used by the community to play and having fun while building fame and relationships, alliance and conflicts. It's the best partener(partner*) for a game axed on politics."

"Samael News is build to be interactive with the community. Contests, interviews of players, announce(announcements) of events. To be a success Samael News will need your participation!"

"We hope that Samael News will help to build the greatest community over there(should be here* as we play on the same server!."

Feel free to correct me though. Was just trying to help you.

Samael News' reporters will be investigating all over Arborea to bring you the latest news, in addition Samael News will provide interesting articles about server life regularly, be it player or guild interviews, patch notes, contests and few surprises sprinkled in between.

Samael News is a weekly publication dedicated to the Tera PvP server Samael (EU).
We'll bring you news, interviews, articles and contests concerning the server and its players. It's a newspaper blog written by Samael players for Samael players.

About Samael News

We've wanted to create a newspaper dedicated to the server's community since Tera caught our interest. Because Tera is a game that relies so heavily on a healthy community we think it is important that we have our own newspaper made by players for players.
We launch this project with a lot of enthusiasm and passion!

As most newspapers, Samael News strive to bring you useful information, but we also want it to be a tool the community can use to have fun, build relationships, aquire fame, forge alliances and quarrel over all the inconveniences of life.

We hope this project will contribute to the growth of the community and we're excited to be here right at the beginning of it all.

We hope we've inspired you to participate in our project and that you'll want to use it to share your events, interact with other people from the server's community and build the most magical place we'll find in Tera!
If this publication is to succeed we need you to participate actively!

Samael News' Crew from Whitestar

woah, really looks great people Very Happy

I'm not too happy about the name on our new server.. might just be me though - there's just too many syllables in Samael or it just sounds funny.. samael times, samael news.. Not sure ''Sam'' would be better though.. suppose Samael news is good enough.. Aaaaanyway! that was not what I wanted to talk about.. ! I was wondering if we're going to make a comic section in our future magazine ? just an idea for later on Smile
