Default New staff positions!

due to the loss of a couple of staff members here, we have positions open in the following:

- News: Rom Hacks and Utilities
Responsibilities:
-- Will review add submitted ROMs to the database, as well (s)he finds on his own.
-- Will add/update any ROM Hacking utilities that (s)he comes across.
-- Will, of course, post any site update resulting from the tasks above on the front page.
Requirements:
-- Must have enough free time to take this seriously. I'm talking checking around for updates and such daily. If you feel that your schedule is too busy, then don't bother.
-- Must be active in the rom hacking scene. Basically, being a regular member at saaay, RHDN or something similar should suffice.

- News: Emulators for PC (Windows)
- News: Emulators for PC (Other OS Linux/Mac)

Responsibilities and requirements for those positions are similar to Rom Hacking.

If you are interested, please shoot a PM to me (don't have an account yet? Register!) and thank you for browsing ZD!

KoolBoyMan doesn't really have the time any more, and BIrvine's left. 'Twas no hard feelings or anything.

Nothing like putting some heavier requirements on a non-paying volunteer job. Sheesh.

Good point. I'm not sure that some of this is realistic to expect for a volunteer thing.

I think daily work is too hard for a volunteer job. Maybe 3-4 people working every 2-3 days is better... I know that news posting is sometimes really boring. I had my own online mag some years ago and it was a little bit frustrating when I posted 15 to 30 news per day and other members only wrote 1-2 reviews (about games) per week.

Perhaps you should ask for a minimum news per month quota or something like that.

Another option is to cooperate with other sites and share some news.

You could also make some kind of contest and offer some prices for the winner.

All I want is the moon and a blue zebra with yellow stripes.

Haha, if you read some my news posts you can tell the ones where I was getting a bit bored.

since koolboy left, do you think you'd be around enough to take care of the Rom Hacking section?
