I've posted requests like this in the past, but haven't gotten much traction.. So this time I'm going to up the ante a bit. I'm looking for people to write news postings for the front page, which I will then edit (if necessary) and post. Basically, here's what I've written about this in the past:
I don't get the opportunity to post news to the front page
of AtariAge as often as I'd like. To that end, I'd like to try and enlist the aid of fellow AtariAge members who might be interested in contributing news items. This would involve writing up one to two paragraph news blurbs, an appropriate title, and (optionally) finding an appropriate image for the news posting. I would then edit the text as necessary, properly scale the image and post up the news on the front page if it's something I feel is worthy and relevant to AtariAge. I also always start up a forum topic regarding the item, if one does not yet exist.
News that I would consider relevant includes:
- New Atari 2600/5200/7800/Lynx/Jaguar homebrew releases
- Atari-related prototype discoveries/releases
- New issues of Atari-related publications (newsletters (printed or online))
- Gaming expo announcements
- Atari-related emulator announcements/updates
- New Atari-related hardware/software announcement/releases
- Major Atari Corporation-related news
And so forth. If it's classic gaming related in some fashion and has an Atari slant of any kind, then I'll consider posting it. If it's not Atari-related, I may still consider posting it, but don't feel bad if I choose not to.
Now, what I'm going to do differently this time around is if I end up using any news that you write up, I will gift you a one-month AtariAge Subscription. If you are already a subscriber, I will extend your subscription by a month.
Please PM me news items directly and I will let you know if I feel it's worthy to post on the front page, and if so, if what you've written is suitable.
