Welcome to the official Writers recruitment thread under the groups new leadership. I would like to take this time to cover some information before getting to the recruitment side of things. Writers is the group which presents the forums with all the latest and greatest happenings. The news is posted fortnightly (every 2 weeks) in the News forum. This allows for each member to cover their section and should leave no excuses why it isn't covered. If you're still interested in applying for Writers then please read on as there is lots to be covered. Keep in mind we require you to have a good standing account on the forums when applying. Further information given if accepted.

Writers being a group which has to show strict action towards the members due to it's level of notability on the forums, for this I have set requirements to be accepted to the group. The requirements are private and each applicant will be investigated once they have submitted their application. That is all.

Sections we need members for:
  • Gaming News

Frequently Asked Questions

What sections are free?
Look at the original post, we update that each time we respond to this thread on the look for new Writers.
It's as simple as that, so please do not ask.

What if the section I want to cover is taken?
Apply for it, there is nothing wrong with multiple people covering the same sections.
And if someone covers multiple sections, I can ask them to give up one of their choice.

What if I applied before?
Either re-apply or if you think your previous application should be reconsidered simply reply here with a link to it.

I have an idea for a new section I want to add and cover, how do I do this?
Reply here with your idea, be as descriptive as possible and explain why it would be good.
If we like it we will add it and you will be responsible for that section of the news.

What is you name?
Ecstasy from NulledBB

How old are you?
18

Which country do you live in?
US of A

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, what are your writing capabilities?
8-9

Which section(s) of the news do you wish to cover and why.
Drama section, I think It would be a new and exciting section for users to read and have a good laugh at. Plus it would be fun to write out and snoop into gossip :3

Can you guarantee that you will have your section covered 3 days before news release?
Yes, I am on NulledBB everyday, I can pretty much guarantee my section covered 3 days prior, If not I will let you know before hand.

Why do you want to become a Writer?
I think it is a respectable title to wear, and it would be fun to do all the writings. I also think it would a fun experience and it would give me more to do on the forums and stay active a lot more. I have always liked writing when I was in school and it helps me relax and I feel like I could be a good writer and have a funny section where everyone can laugh and have a good read. I have a certain personality and i think that affects how you write and how people pick up on it, So I hope I have made an amazing application, and I hope you think about it.

One of the staff accidentally junked the thread instead of closing it.
Sadly, no.

What is you name?
I'm not going to tell my real name but my alias is: Gnar. 

How old are you?
I'm 19 years old.

Which country do you live in?
I live in Estonia It is near Russia and Finland.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, what are your writing capabilities?
I would say around 8 or 9. Sometimes I do some grammatical mitakes but usually my writing capability is pretty good.

Which section(s) of the news do you wish to cover and why.
World News.

I would love to write articles about what is happening in the world.
I love to tell people about things that's happening in the world. I also have written some articles in NulledBB before.

Why?

If I would be accepted to Writers I wouldn't just simply Copy+Paste an article from mainstream media. I have lots of sources and news that are not covered in mainstream media. My articles would be interesting to read as they are not covered in the mainstream media. I love to write a lot. Also on my free time I usually do some programming. Programming has imporved my typing speed a lot. My average typing speed is 130WPM. -- Generally average person typing speed is around 40-60. I have more than triple of that.

Can you guarantee that you will have your section covered 3 days before news release?
I can guarantee that. I will try my best to make the articles as soon as possible. Usually when I promise to do something I will do it in time.

BUT if I happen to be sick or in any other way unavailable to write an article I will notify the writers admin about that.

Why do you want to become a Writer?
It would be extra nice feature to spend time on NulledBB. I love to write and read articles. That's it.
I hope I didn't make a lot of grammatical  mistakes in this application. If I did I'm sorry about that it is 4am here.

EDIT: - I spend my most time on computer so I have a lot of free time.
Do not allow the eye to fool the mind.
I'm just trying to find what's important

It's scary to be applying here. I get that I am new, But I love reading the news and I would love to join this team.

What is you name?
My name is Zenith.
 I would not like to give out my real name for safety reasons / I don't really like it.

How old are you?
I am 15 years old. Yes I know I seem extremely young, not mature enough or a good enough writer but I would like to prove my worth. Please don't let my age be the defining factor whether you accept me or not.

Which country do you live in?
I live in The USA. Where in the USA? I live in New York, which means I am in the east coast time zone. Hopefully that is okay with you guys!

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, what are your writing capabilities?
I usually do not like to judge myself in fear of sounding too full of myself. But I think I am an 8/10 when it comes to writing. I spend a lot of time (when trying to be serious) to write my projects to pick out the correct words. I usually sit there asking myself "what is the best way to introduce my topic?" I usually try my best to sound as intelligent as I can with my vocabulary. I have one of the best grades in my english class, and I normally get 90's on the essays we have to write.

Which section(s) of the news do you wish to cover and why.

The  section that I would like to do the most is the Interviews section. Since that does not seem to be open. I am willing to fill in with the Member News / Group News.



Can you guarantee that you will have your section covered 3 days before news release?

I am usually extremely afraid of procrastination. Usually I have a fear of never handing things in because I wait too long, so I tend to finish extremely early. I will try my best to apply this fear to the writers team with whatever section I am assigned.



Why do you want to become a Writer?
I really enjoy writing. If I am not reading / doing work / browsing forums, I am writing. Writing has been a passion of mine ever since I was really young. I also find a news section for Nulledbb to be intriguing to me. I never would've thought people would care so much for a forum to make a news section for it. It's really cool that you guys are this dedicated, and I want to feel that dedicated to this site. This will definitely add another layer to my growth in this site and I really feel that it could help my writing capability for school also.

I really hope you guys can take this application into consideration. I would loveee to join this group.

Kind regards


we will wait for this

I like to keep my real name private. You can call me Maiki.

How old are you?
I'm in my mid teens. My age is something I try to keep to myself.

Which country do you live in?
I currently live in the US.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, what are your writing capabilities?
Hmmmm... I'd say around a 7 or an 8 when I am really driven to make something sound nice and still hold meaning. I try to put the most I can into my work with detailed examples and colourful word choice. I take a good amount of time looking over what I have made, improving parts and correcting errors. I try to read everything over at least once.

Which section(s) of the news do you wish to cover and why.
I wish to cover the "World News" section. I frequently visit Vice and watch the news in my free time, which allows me to stay up to date about what is going on in our world. I have a mainly unbiased opinion, which makes it great to report news neutrally, so no-one gets offended. I can create short summaries of current world events without putting blurring opinions into the work.

Can you guarantee that you will have your section covered 3 days before news release?
I definitely can. It usually takes me 1-2 hours to create a good piece of work, and I try to get my work done at least a day before the due-date. You can certainly count on me to bring the news.

Why do you want to become a Writer?
I like to write, which was one of my main reasons for me wanting to be one. I also love to learn about our current world news and events, which is what really led me to wanting to be a writer after I saw that the World News section was open. I'm a hard worker and I try to make everything I do to the best to my abilities, which I've found to be a great advantage in writing.  

There you go.
Like some, love some, trust none.
