The New Dudes
« on: January 03, 2008, 12:29:33 pm »
I think this deserves a new topic. Discuss what you think the new writers (Nearly typed "Wrighters")

Anyway, hi to the new guys, hope you write ("Wright" again!) articles that will keep me interested for ages until I realized this 7am the next day.

The new guys are cool (I'll assume), I haven't seen enough of their material to formulate an opinion though. But if Steve likes them than there's a good chance that they'll do good work.

Do Jay and Steven play WoW?



Sub-Par armor.
But everyone loves Gnomes. Let the punting games begin!




Looks fake... I haven't played in awhile, so I assume this is new armor... but it looks like rogue armor... and it's wielding Hand of Ragnaros... Perhaps it's Warrior armor?

Ranking them by the pictures they posted with their introductions would probably be mean. But I'm going to do it anyway.  :P

Demoman
Halo gravity hammering
Blood Elf
Gnome


We'll have to see if actual content matches up to presentation  ;)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Just so everyone knows that character in my picture is indeed mine. :)  It's a female blood elf rogue on the server Deathwing.  Her name is Alydia and the gear your looking at is in fact her Arena Season 2 armor and Season 1 weapons.  I'm taking some time away from her though so I can keep content rolling in for you guys :)    http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Deathwing&n=Alydia is here armory link though!

Thanks for the welcome party guys! :D

Sorry to bump an old thread, but I thought I would drop in to say hello. I have joined the writing staff on the main site today thanks to Steve finally giving in to my demands, and as you can see from my introductory article, I really want to try hard to make an impact on the site, and you can expect to see me and my content quite a bit from now on. Hopefully Steve will upload my other article I did today as well, so you can see how I write. Feel free to leave me comments, PM me, or reply to this thread with relevant info, questions, requests, etc. and I'll try and get back to you as soon as I can. What advice would you guys give me for fitting into the community?

Talk often in the forums. That's the best advice I can give.

Indeed, we tend to like contributors much more when they talk to us. ;)

Good, I was planning to do so to get to know everyone and to try to break this stigma I've seen between the front page and the forums when there isn't a podcast. Looks like my first article is up. I know it's a list (which I think some of you may be sick of by now), but I think you'll like it regardless. I promise I won't do too many of them from now on if you're annoyed with them.

Personally I love lists, they are simple and make sense;, plus I can try to guess what you'll say next like a game or something! Doesn't take much to please me.

And publicly denouncing Nexus War will make you popular with everyone else.

Time to choose, contributor. :P

I'm sure praising the forum RPs wouldn't step on any toes.

Nobody will ever know about the RPs except those of us who are in them, unfortunately. :'(

Toots? Yeah, I don't think so. Not a good way to get started here. You might want to look over the forum rules if you plan to stay awhile.
