    Calling all Professional Writerer Upperers*

    Post  inf0rm3r on Wed Sep 01, 2010 12:13 pm

    My secret project is nearly complete, all that remains is some real professional content and some small bug fixes. The content on this website will be of the up most quality and all tutorials will need to be understood for crowds who are both visual learners and written learners.

    I need people who can write write ups and submit some of their work to me via e-mail to be ready for the site launch. On launch there will be a submission system to handle tutorial submissions.

    The requirements for this content are as follows:

    All content must be tutorial orientated in relation to Nerf Blasters & or darts.

    Each tutorial requires.

    Simplification - Simple is important, please explain things straight forward, while not being to short. Basically limit rambling and get to the point.

    Pictures - A lot of people are visual learners, I will not accept tutorials without pictures or tutorials with insufficient pictorial guides. Please send pictures at the size of 800 x 600 & 640 x 480 dimensions, cleanly named.

    Spelling & Grammar - If this isn't at a very high standard it will not get a second look.

    All bases covered - Ensure the tutorial is complete and clarity is perfect, before you submit read the tutorial over a number of times and think if I had never done this before could I follow through this successfully without questions.

    Structure -

    Please structure the tutorial as follows:

    Title: Name of the tutorial (not Automatic Poo Shooter made out of PVC)
    Materials/Tools: List all materials and alternatives, prevent abbreviations
    Level: Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced / Godlike
    Steps: 1 - whatever
    By: You will be given credit clearly for each piece you submit.

    DO NOT SUBMIT INFORMATION THAT ISN'T YOURS. Doing so will lead to a ban from this portal permanently and I will ensure you never come back under another alias.

    I am also after someone who would like to add news to a portal one or twice a week and keep things up to date.

    Forum moderators and are also required for each individual state. You can apply by e-mail. I will be accepting 2 per state.

    1 x Global Moderator required to assist in managing trash talk and useless posts.

    Event Manager - I require someone to aid in updating events throughout the event management system as well as getting these events out to the public and other forums/websites.

    Please only apply if your genuinely interested in improving the Nerf community and are able to give up a couple of hours a week of your time.

    no spaces obviously.

    Are you interested in writeups that have been posted here? I'd be happy to tidy mine up a bit and submit them.
    Also, I'll apply for the VIC admin position. Do we need to email you some sort of application or something? Also also, does the VIC admin monitor the VIC part of the site?

    Write ups from here are ok as long as they are tidied up and acceptable

    Just pop through an email with your details etc. I know you quite well and I don't think there's anyone else in Victoria that can meet up to your standards.

    Each state has a sub section with a small community in each section this is what needs moderating by each state moderator. Global moderation position and administration will basically keep a general eye on the sections which are open to all.

    I haven't decided yet but each registered user may be placed into a group which will allow posting into each state section, this could cause a bad reaction to so I'll do a bit if testing to see how I can work it.

    Why didn't you contact AJ and myself about your website? Could have saved us a lot of time and we'd have gotten things better organised.

    I've just been chipping away at it overtime, it's just about ready for launch just need content to fill it, I prefer to work on the technical side of things myself as I tend to do everything at once.

    Did you want to take care of the SA section over there?

    The point is, you're doing a website that is pretty much what FSA was going to handle. If you were going to do that, then fine, tell us so we all don't make our own websites. It'd just have been more efficient for all of us to contribute towards one common goal of getting a nice website for modded nerf guns going rather than you do your own thing and for AJ to do his.

    I'm pretty much the event manager for SA already, but I have no interest in forum moderation.

    It has aspects of FSA but I've expanded on it and gone slightly in a different direction on some areas.

    I've been working on this for some time, a couple of months planning, creating graphics and finding the best software to do the job. FSA only recently emerged which is why I was unsure of what you guys were doing.

    Here is some previews of the navigation.





    I've received a few emails already and it's good to see a response I'll leave it for a week and then once the site is published chosen members will take on the roles they've applied for.

    When will the site be functional do you think? I really like the UI for the navigation

    Have spent all day on the UI, well the images mainly. I'm hoping to have everything done in a week but that depends entirely on the time I can put into it.

    Content is another story as its ongoing but I want to have it at least 50% full by the time it launches, so there's more than a forum and events section to visit.

    Here is the logo which sits on the forum top section. This isn't the official logo, only the forum one as it is a very horizontal size required.

    Actually this is pretty much the approach I was taking, I dont feel like its expanded on anything really, some of things for the UI are strikingly similar actually - we've never shared ideas or talked about it so I'm not meaning you copied me or I copied you

    If you'd like to talk more about how we can focus our efforts rather than work separately then PM me or email me or something
