    Uncle Sarumont Wants YOU!!! (for the Content Development Team)


    The Content Development team is recruiting new members! I'd like to add at least one, possibly two, members to the team. In case you don't know, we are responsible for providing reviews, opinions, interviews and the like for you guys here at LinuxForumsDOTorg.

    Any member of linuxforums.org with more than 50 posts and who joined at least 1 month ago is eligible to apply for the position. Those applying for the postition should also have the following qualities:

    * Strong written English - including good grammar and spelling.
    * Good communication and inter-personal skills
    * Ability to work on own initive and be self-motivated
    * Ability to work as part of a team and contribute to group discussions



    It is obvious that review team members should be able to find the necessary time to read said book, experiment with said distro or prepare and execute said interview. Books and CD's can be provided free of charge and will become the property of the reviewer once review is completed.

    Anyone interested can PM or email me with a short, one-paragraph mock-review.

    I would like to do it, but I haven't really written reviews before (not that I couldn't). I did however write quite some articles and am willing to contribute the GNU/Linux community here somehow. I also like trying out new things (especially GNU/Linux distributions).

    So, if there is no too much candidates, feel free to count me in.

    EDIT: Oh well, I should send that "mock review". Well, maybe I will!

    Thanks
    Daniel

    I've sent the mock review on Arch GNU/Linux to qub333.

    K...I'll be reviewing these next week, so anyone who's still writing one or anything like that be sure to get it in this weekend!

    Thanks for all the submissions so far!

    Hey sarumont,

    I was just wondering if you came to a decision yet.

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Unfortunately, my machine at home has stopped playing well with X. I just now got a chance to check the submissions at work and will be reviewing them shortly. Sorry about the delay.

    I would love to do it, however, I am too new, too new to Linux, and I have suffered a brain trauma so, even though I have decent grammar (well, my spelling isn't perfect, but...), and I know how to write a little, I can't do it yet.

    If I can make it through the next few weeks, and manage to get through some of my own reading, I would certainly volunteer. Another problem that I have, however, is that I have an old home built computer, with a PIII 550 in it, not much of a compiler. I need a CPU and RAM and I will have my new system fully built, but I have to come up with the money some how. Call me poor.

    This is just about the best forum I have found.

    The decision was made beginning of this week. I'll be posting an official announcement when that person has been added to the CD team officially.
