    Post Content Team Recruitment


    The Content Team has been discussing adding more members for a few weeks now, and have come to the general consensus that this a good idea. So we're currently recruiting members again.
    First, a little about the Content Team. In the past, our responsibilities have been reviewing products, conducting interviews, and approving/rejecting news articles. Now, with the new site and management, our duties have been expanded. From now on, the Content Team will be in charge of all supplementary content, including interviews and reviews, but also tutorials, news items, and other articles. Therefore, we need a few more members.
    The current members of the Content Team are kkubasik, jeremy1701, and lakerdonald. The ideal number is currently pegged at around 10, but this might change based on the number of applicants we receive.
    The requirements to apply are as follows:
    -All applicants must be active members on Linux Forums for at least two months
    -All applicants must have, at the very least, 150 posts
    -Applicants should be able to write coherent English sentences
    -Applicants must be able to commit to meeting deadlines and being an active team member
    -No prior experience is necessary
    Beyond that, anybody can apply.
    If you are interested, send me a PM or e-mail me. Tell me a little bit about yourself, and why you think you are qualified to join the team. Please submit any prior work (if applicable) or any other supplementary material.
    Beyond this, please submit an example article or review, at least one page in length, for me to judge.
    I'll PM the successful applicants, and after they are all notified, the complete CD Roster will be posted here.
    Thanks,
    Andy

    Hey laker.
    Could I ask a question on the above?
    You have been part of the team for a while now, and I would just like to know.. How much time does it take out of normal life?
    Would you say it takes a lot of your time?
    Thanks

    It doesn't take too much time out of your normal life. However long it takes you to check the Content Devel forum and write reviews is the amount of time you need to devote. Go ahead and give it a whirl and apply.

    I have to agree with Laker, it can be manageable, also if we add 7 or so members then the load is a lot lighter. Remember, many hands make light work

    or something like that....
