Welcome to The News Team!

Editor-in-Chief:

Serene |SLDR|

 

Members of The News Team are divided into three main categories: writers, proofreaders, and interviewers.

  • Writers develop content (e.g. write reviews, record videos, etc.) There is no limit on the number of writers.
  • Proofreaders edit content (e.g. correct spelling, grammar, formatting, and audio/video quality mistakes before the writers' work is published). They may also fact-check when needed. The number of proofreaders should not exceed the number of writers.
  • Interviewers conduct interviews.  An interview is conducted once every 2 weeks with the interviewers rotating the duty. The interviews must be recorded and transcribed in a timely manner after the interview is completed.
  • Newsletter Creators help create the Monthly Marauder Newsletter.  The newsletter is sent out each month on the 1st. The newsletter creator is responsible for completing sections of the newsletter by the date Serene assigns.

The section leader is the editor-in-chief and his/her assistants (usually seasoned proofreaders) are the managing editors.

  • The editor-in-chief approves and trains new team members, handles archiving, and makes sure materials are published correctly and in a timely manner. He/She has the final say on any disputes. There is only one editor-in-chief.
  • Managing editors ensure that proofreaders are upholding quality standards and give the final approval on materials for publication. They may do their own round of proofreading before giving that approval, if needed. There is one managing editor for every 10 writers.

The Guide Team is a subsection of the News Team dedicated to producing high-quality game play guides for MOBAs, shooters, RPGs, MMOs, and an array of other games. Some of these guides are designed to be introductions for new players, while others are aimed towards more advanced players trying to pick up new skills or improve their existing ones. Many of these guides will be in text form, but video guides are highly encouraged!

 

The team consists of Guide Creators who produce the content and managing editors who check the content for accuracy, relevance, and ease of use. Unlike other writers for the News Team, guide creators do not have any deadlines (although significantly extended periods of inactivity may lead to removal from the team).

Hey everyone! If you are getting this notification it is because are apart of the News/Guide Team! As the new Head of the News Team I am changing some things around and start the section up again.

If you would like to continue being apart of the team please let me know below or in a PM. I know some of the information needs to be changed, so let me know if I haven't updating yours yet. If you do not contact me by June 1st, you will be removed from the Team.

I will add you to the list, which part of the news/guide team were you looking to be on? It doesn't like you were ever added to the thread but you are apart of the team.

I'm either a writer or proofreader for news, whichever is needed more. I can probably do interviews if needs be as well, although I doubt I have any game skills at a high enough level to do a guide.

I just thought, as I'm an English teacher, I was tempted to make a little English grammar/language section for our non-English speaking members. Would that fall under here? I would still need Booyah approval I think.

I'm looking to find someone to replace my role for the guides in HotS. Once I do that though I'll still want to be a part of the team. Perhaps an interviewer.

I will add you as a writer for now, since I know you have written reviews before. Before adding you for proofreading or interviewing I would like to train you in those positions to ensure you know what you would be doing in those positions. Let me know when you are free for training and I am willing to help. It can be anytime soon or when you are ready!
