Cool, what's your site?

Its xboxliveaware.com.  It really isn't much of anything.  Just something I do for fun and for some of my friends to look at.

Looks good, what software do you use? It's a bit more advanced than mine!

I've been a listener for quite some time and so the prospect of contributing to the site sounded like a pretty awesome opportunity.  Some of it seems a bit over my head so to speak but overall it'd be cool especially when you know your message probably won't fall of deaf ears. ::)

NO... nothing yet. I'm guessing we'll find out by his next podcast and hopefully that will be on Sunday/Monday. It makes me wonder how many people submitted articles. We have the handfull of people who submitted here on this board. There are probally people who might have been to afraid to post here in case they didn't get picked and would have to contine life with all the world knowing that they weren't good enough. Finally there's the people listen to the show and don't even know about the message boards, so who knows how many people actually submitted stuff to him? Then Steve has to read all the entries on top of his already "busy" life. ( I put busy in quotes because he's probally just playing WOW again :P) Or it could be we all suck and he doesn't know how to go on living after reading entry after entry of mutilated grammar and slaughtered spelling. ;D

I kid, but I hate waiting for stuff like this so I start thinking of scenario after scenario on why I haven't heard anything yet. At this point I don't care so much about getting picked or not, not saying that it I wouldn't be happy getting chosen, but just pull that bandaid off already.
I need a new tag.

I sent him a request too, along with a bit of my background.

We need to remember that Steve is very busy though. He has lots of things going on, so if you haven't heard from him yet, I wouldn't get worried. Even if you don't get picked, you're always free to share your news and thoughts here.

Steve said they are not saying much so he put Spore Talk in mothballs until there is more info.

Also, like Pilot said, send Steve interesting news stories and whatnot. I have had him put some stuff I sent him up like the Speed Demos Archive news post he made a few months ago.

Why not Steve make a "club" of freelance writers, post an idea on the site for what to write about, Steve takes the best of what he recieves. ( Or whoever handed it in first, depending on the need for quality in any certain piece.

If Steve didn't want such "regular" updates, I'd submit. I've written quite a bit in the past for a few gaming sites, and think I'm a pretty good writer...but right now, I could manage only "pretty irregular" updates :( Wish he'd asked 4-5 years ago - stupid "life" is in the way nowadays.

Nope.

Something important must have happened because he has not done any of his stuff.


I am not complaining though. I will wait diligently and patiently.

Please just give him more time. I don't think he rejected anyone. I'm trying to contact him to let him know that people are concerned so hopefully we'll hear something soon.
