1  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Wants YOU! on: July 11, 2015, 11:02:32 PM

You may have seen this on the main site, but maybe not! If you haven't, we're looking to hire some more folks. Our last effort went exceedingly well, as it's given us the best output and biggest news staff in RPGFan's history!

We're hoping for similar success this time around, which is why we're pushing to promote this Hiring Drive so much. This time, we're seeking News Writers/Editors, Reviews Editors, and Social Media Editors. Direct application links are here, which include a basic overview of each position. I'll add a little more info below about each, as well.

News Editors
News comes from a variety of sources, such as directly from publishers, other websites, and more. As a News Editor, you'll be doing a combination of finding worthwhile news to write about, and then... writing it! If you browse our news, you'll be familiar with our typical style of news, which can be as simple as that new RPG getting a release date, or as detailed as detailed character profiles for an upcoming Atelier game.

The News team shares these duties of finding and writing stories, so there's less of a burden on any one person. We often get asked what kind of time commitment we expect, though the honest answer is "whatever you can give us," as long as you're able to contribute several times per week, and be around and active amongst the staff. News is especially demanding on time, but the more people we're able to recruit, the more we can disperse this otherwise heavy workload!

Reviews/Previews Editors
One of the most vital and well-respected sections of RPGFan is our Reviews section. We pride ourselves on our excellent review staff - past and present - and we're always seeking additional talented people to help with our perpetually-long list of RPGs to be reviewed.

Good candidates communicate ideas clearly and efficiently in writing, think critically, and can produce on average one review or preview per month.

Professional writing experience is preferred, but not required, as we have plenty of guidelines, advice, and suggestions if you're hired.

Social Media Editors
Using social media isn't new territory for us, but having dedicated people is. As much as we try to have multiple people contribute in this area, we'd much prefer someone who really knows their way around the social web to promote RPGFan and engage with... well, all of you! Our readers, and potential readers.

Ideally, we'd like to hire someone who reads the site regularly and is familiar with the titles  we cover. If you're already a forum regular too, that's a bonus, since we probably already know you!

We have more information on this position in the application itself, since this position is a little harder to pin down compared to something like "write one review per month." We're very open to new ideas in this space as well, so the duties aren't 100% set in stone, and we'd like to hear your ideas for making RPGFan more social and interactive!

That about covers it - please ask us any more questions you may have, and thanks for reading!

I'd love to see more unique features of the site, sort of 'Top 10's' or editorials.

So would we! There's a couple things in various stages of discussion, so we're working on.... things. :)

I have a feeling if I actually posted around these forums more often, Dice would be following me around picketing all the green. :)

Thank you both!

Since apparently Dice is going to want me to post in this topic annually (literally, my last post here was Feb. 17, 2014), I'll share another "what if". Behold what may have been in 2006, had a sponsorship deal actually worked out:

Don't worry, there's no lack of FFVI love amongst our hosts. I was actually really close to picking a song from it for our upcoming episode, but went with choices that fit our theme better.

Trust us, it's a constant struggle to try and be diverse and choose songs that fit each episode's theme and not just toss out all our personal favorites - otherwise I personally would have wedged Terra's theme in there by now. :)

FIFTEEN, MOTHERFU... oh good, all staff members are derailing this topic. :D But yeah, I also have big love for RPGs.

I guess it's okay until the episode is out and there's something new to talk about.

Derek's shoes are too big to fill, and we won't even try to do so. Instead, we'll make new shoes to stand alongside them. Hurray!

My shoes are bigger! I mean, not my podcasting, metaphor shoes that you're talking about here. Just my literal, gigantic shoes that are on my actual feet. (They were even the highlight discussion at work today)

We all appreciate what Derek has done with the show, but we also didn't want to let the show flounder; He'll be missed, but we also hope you all stick with us and enjoy where the show goes from here. I'm going to be more involved with the show as well, which is why you're seeing a rare post from me of all people here.

The next episode is coming sooner than you may think - please let us know your thoughts!

Are there any games in particular you're interested in having us review?

I'll admit this was largely on me to implement, and I apologize it's been so late in coming, Thanks to Andrew helping me with platform research, I finally got these together! Please give the new pages a look, and let us know your thoughts!


And thanks for your patience. :)

I think you guys should pick a random April Fool's or something where you make the site incredibly annoying to read, like with a bright yellow or pink backgrounds with light green text or something.

Years ago, we did have a bright pink RPGFan for April Fool's Day. 

Did we?

I rarely lurk around the forums, so depending on how much you read the site, many of you may not know me, but I added myself to the initial list. :)

So... who remembers the old RPGBoard days with the stupidly hugs sigs, the "sig test" posts, and all of that?  I remember the one dude with his crazy Macross sig with big images, glittery logos, and music.  I used to check the "don't see sigs" option so I wouldn't have to look at it and wait for it to load. 

That sig was EPIC...... is what I would say if I remember those days.

But I don't remember those days at all.

At all.

What specific version of Opera & Windows are you (both of you) using?

I installed Opera 15 on both OS X and Windows 7 and can't get this to happen. I even made my windows as small as could be and the image still opened centered and scaled to fit.
