Post by Winny » Tue Feb 13, 2007 9:39 pm

######### DEAD ##########

Its basically a bi-weekly bzflag "newspaper" of the sorts.

You can submit news, and what-not, and Ill pop it in...

More to come when the site progresses.

I am basically posting this to get some authours, or BZFlag leagues or groups that would like to contribute to this project.

I'll look at writing some stuff if you want. I dunno what about yet... I'll think of something.

I like the fact that it's bi-weekly - that'll put much less stress on the authors, and allow for more thought out articles.

Some things I would be willing to write about are the leagues of bzflag, and some other things.

As said on the site, you don't need permission to be an author... Just create an article and submit it.

I can offer to help set up all of the options. I have a WordPress blog hosted on wordpress.com and I have it all set up. I'll also offer to correct spelling and grammar to the best of my extent.
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

I'm on Twitter. And I mess with webOS. This signature is not a blog.

Do you mean, just any random person comment on their own or, do you mean... send an article through messages and you'll type it?

Im almost done with my article. What happens if 2 people submit articles on the same topic? does the article first submited gets to be in the paper?

If they don't cover the exact same things (IE, they differ in idea) then, yeah, they'll both be under the "Gu league" topic, or whatever it is.

Hate to bump this, but has this idea worked out in any way? If you need more authors, I'll try to contribute. It's a very cool idea and could be a nice addition to the game. Any new news about bznews?

As said before - you don't need permission to be an author. However, it looks as if this project is under maintenance or something? And as for the submitting the same topic or random people submitting things - I am sure that the submissions will be reviewed thoroughly to see that they are worthy of being up for reading and exploring. I like the idea of there being a section about GU for various types of writings on that topic.

But, as muffino said... what's up? :D

Sorry, someone who I trusted with root FTP access to bzfusion.net deleted the project. It is dead...

It can't be revived in any way? Any backup files?
