Looking for Garrysmod.com newsposters

I’m interested in finding some more newsposters for Garrysmod.com. So to get maximum exposure I’m posting this in a few sections like the last application threads.

You’ll gain the ability to publish your own articles and approve people’s submissions. The website is powered by a moderately tweaked Wordpress installation so it should be easy to get a hang of.

Basically here’s what I want, copy paste’d from garry’s old thread:
[ul][li] Good spelling etc[/li][li] A good idea of what is news worthy and what is not[/li][li] HTML skills a total bonus, but not totally required[/li][li] Trustworthy[/li][li] Actively involved in the community[/li][li] Want to do it all for free[/ul][/li]


HOW TO APPLY

Please read this carefully… if you aren’t capable of following these simple instructions you’re showing me you wouldn’t really be a good newposter. Reason why I’m being a little blunt is some people seem to seriously misunderstand this part of the application process.

Post an item of news HERE:

I know it allows guest posting… but I won’t accept applications if you submit it as a guest. You need to be registered and logged in, you can do so HERE:

Make SURE you put (APPLY) at the beginning of your article’s title.

Basically, you post an item of news as if you were already an admin to show me what you’ve got. It must be something that has some amount of newsworthyness and must not already be posted on the website. If your article is all nice and spiffy but is about something that was already posted about, I’ll probably dismiss your submission.


YOU MUST PUT IN YOUR FACEPUNCH USERNAME IN THAT LITTLE TEXTBOX UNDER THE CAPTCHA TOO OTHERWISE I PROBABLY WON'T BE ABLE TO FIND YOU HERE

With the above in mind… apply away. Good luck!

You can also use this topic to ask me questions if you’re curious about anything… I’ll be checking these every so often.

Submitted!
PS. if you didn’t notice, mine was sarcastic :v:

oh shit i forgot to put ‘(APPLY)’ in it.

:iceburn:

Thinking of mm3guy / overv.

Your news story will be rejected if:

* It has really bad spelling
* It is formatted badly
* It is unimportant
* **It is doesn't have enough detail **

Doesn’t make sense.

what part about an article not having enough detail does not make sense to you

Please add (APPLY) into the title, it’s hard to tell who’s isn’t an application and whose is otherwise.

Thinking about applying.

writing AWS.

I tried this the last time. Spent a while on the news post, checked everything to make it perfect and it was denied for no reason.

Hahahaha. :downs:

So anyways, since you’re asking in the Mapping section, are you requiring us to look for mapping-related projects or will it be a general-interest of all topics?

you can write about anything you want. i posted in most gmod sections to get the word out.

your article was alright but it was too heavy on images and you don’t need to put <html> and <body> in the article’s html…

Well I tried making one in a little time period I had 2 days ago

Mmmkay, I just remembered my years of trying to learn HTML :biggrin:
Don’t the thumbtags (geddit?) make the images smaller, though? it looks that way now, anyway…

Can’t find something newsworsthy.

Do we seriously have to find something newsworthy, it’s been posted already.
Mine was just an example.
And why does your name say Facepunch Moderator, didn’t it say GMOD moderator a few days ago?

i got a transfer

also your article is about something that sux

this is not something that should be posted on gmod.com

Ok, writing my article.
Just need to remember how to include that link… Y’know. You click on a word and it opens the link.

cool

Added an application.

I know, it was sarcastic.
