The Super Mario Bros. Spotlight - Main Thread!

Post by The Monkey Man on Fri Nov 06, 2009 9:46 am


Welcome to the site's newsletter, The Super Mario Bros. Spotlight! Issue #1 coming soon! :O

In this newsletter, we discuss the latest Super Mario news about the games, the forum, some cheats, an Ask column, epicly funny comics, and much more!

The issues will start to be released when all of the open job positions are filled.

LEADERS:
Founder/Main Leader: The Monkey Man
Second in Command/Assistant Leader: sk8r gurl

Unfortunately, leader places aren't open at the moment. They might be in future, when more people go on here.

WORKERS:
Introduction: (Help - wanted!) (Introduces the newsletter, and some of the stuff this issue contains. :O)
Top News: (Help - wanted!) (Tells important or interesting news about Mario, his games, or this forum.)
Weather: (Help - wanted!) (Tells about the made up weather in the Mushroom Kingdom. It could be Bowser crashing into the sun with his bad airship driving causing months of sunshine, or it could be hailing mushrooms so the readers shouldn't be surprised if they saw Mario running around the land with a plate in his hands. Let your imagination go wild!)
Tips, Glitches and Cheats: (Help - wanted!) (Tell the viewers any tips, glitches, and cheats for Mario games.)
Mario Game Of The Season: (Help - wanted!) (Choose a random Mario game, and tell the readers some facts and the history of it, plus it's release dates and interesting stuff relating to the game.)
Ask _____: (Help - wanted!) (Answer reader's questions, no matter how off topic or silly they are!)
Interview: (Help - wanted!) (Interview a cow, a duck, or YOU! Interview members, moderators, or even administrators, and ask them silly questions!)
What Would A Mod Say: (Help - wanted!) (PM a question to The Monkey Man, about anything you want. Then the rest of the moderators will answer the question! It can be any question you like, from 'Is moderating hard?' to 'How smelly are your socks?')
Comic Artist for Funnies: MarioFan456 (Make a comic about Mario. Try to get the readers to ROFLOL! xD)
Random Picture Artist for Funnies: (Help - wanted!) (Make a completely random picture. It doesn't even have to be Mario related!)
Endtroduction: (Help - wanted!) (Finish the issue with a little statement. :3)


If you want to work here, but you don't think you're suitable for any of the above jobs, feel free to submit your own.

To get a job, you require the following:

- Decent article production (We're looking for articles that are well written, have a good point, are entertaining, and understandable.)
- A decent warning level (yellow is the least you can have to work here)
- At least 25 posts (Most new people will just visit this forum once, then forget about it forever, so having 25 posts proves that you're not one of them!)
- At least 30 coins (Same as above - to prove that you're not a 'Read, signup, never return' person!)
- High activity on SMBF (The more active the members, the more active the newsletter!)
- Good grammar (It saves time translating - good grammar applies to capitalization at the beginning of sentences and nouns, decent spelling, proper use of punctuation (.!:;"), and proper sentences (I went to the park today./i goed to park today))
- Randomness (Even the mods and admins here are random at times. The newsletter has some random moments too! But if you're so random that your article makes no sense, you won't be accepted.)
- Knowledge of Mario and this forum (You can't exactly write a newsletter about something you don't know about! Razz)

Also, here's a template for your JOB APPLICATION:

What job do you want?:
Can you write an article once every three months?:
If you already work for the SMBS, how many jobs do you have?:

Please post an example of your work:

FAQ:

Q : Where can I find the issues?
A : No issues have been released yet, but when they do come out, they will be in the SMBS subforum. ;D

Q : I have finished my articles, how do I get them to you?
A : Firstly, DO NOT POST THEM IN THE FORUMS. PM the articles to me, and I will put the issues together. If the members of the forum have already seen your article, this newsletter would be pointless!


Q : Where do I sign up for a job?
A : Just reply to this thread with the application.

Q : When does each issue come out?
A : It comes out four times a year; once for every season. That means an issue in March, June, September, and December. It will be released on the Sunday before the second Monday of the month.

Q : Do I have to follow all the rules within this newsletter?
A : YES. Every single part of the forum requires the rules to be followed.

Q : How many jobs can I have?
A : You can have up to THREE jobs.

Q: When do I have to get my article in by?
A : You have to get it in by up to the day before the issue's release date.


Q : i herd u liek mudkipz?
A: ya i do liek mudkipz! how u no? :O

However, if you do not want to make a full comic or are too late to enter the contest, you could always do the random picture. Smile
