Can I first offer a HUGE thanks to foxblock for keeping Pandorapress rolling single-handedly while I was absent. Fantastic job mate. The whole community appreciates it.
Now it's time to take some pressure off the man. Obviously I'm back, but I don't think I can keep up the same level of posting as I used to. So we're looking for two or three people who would be interested in helping out with:
- Regular production updates (based on ED's posts and Craig's tweets for the most part)
- Software releases, projects of interest, any other Pandora-related news
- Software reviews
There are no qualifications needed - we're all just volunteers and Pandorians! - but there are a few loose requirements:
- Good, clear writing. Any examples you could link (or conjure up below) would be helpful.
- Basic understanding of HTML (yeah we're using Wordpress, but it's mildly broken). If you know your <img> from your <a href="">, you know enough.
- Ability to crop/resize images to specified sizes.
And here are some things that don't matter:
- Perfect English. As long as your stuff is informative and/or fun, it doesn't matter.
- Deadlines. No pressure, no whipcracking, no expectations. (Although between everyone, the blog should really get at least one post per day).
- 'The company line.' Pandorapress is a news service for the community, not an opinion platform. But it's not State run media either. Writers are allowed to have opinions, as long as they're free of hate and vulgarity, and mindful of why we're posting there in there in the first place - for the benefit of fellow Pandora peeps.
...so, anyone interested? If so, link, paste or write some of your own work below. (If you're going to write something new, maybe pick a Pandora app and do a mini-review!). There are a couple of PMs incoming too.
