Return of the Mata Nui Weekly?

Hello fellow players of the BZPRPG. For some time now you've been without the Mata Nui Weekly (or MNW as it's commonly called), and in recent weeks I have seen a growing desire for the OOC news source to return. As busy as I am, I would be happy to bring the MNW back if there is enough player involvement. Please feel free to volunteer for reporting positions in the comments section below, as well as leave your overall opinions and comments regarding how the new MNW could improve or better serve the BZPRPG community. The Weekly is a periodical by the players for the players: do not be shy in offering to help!

Read on to see some of the ideas and changes being implemented for the new MNW.

Staff At The Weekly
I am still the chief editor of the MNW, but I would strongly encourage any of the reporters for the MNW before it collapsed to re-apply or confirm the region they wish to keep monitoring. GearDirector will retain his seat as co-editor unless he otherwise wishes to move on. The current list of available positions at the MNW are:
  • Weekly Reporter, Kentoku: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Kini-Nui: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Po-Wahi: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Onu-Wahi:reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Ko-Wahi: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Ta-Wahi: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Ga-Wahi: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Weekly Reporter, Le-Wahi: reads and writes weekly OOC reports on their assigned topic.
  • Character Reporter: Browses the Character Profile topic for a featured PC each week
  • Game Involvement Reporter: Follows News and Discussion, topics, and compiles short weekly list for Character Interaction opportunities.
Locations, Reporters, & Deadlines: How It Works

For those interested in applying for a volunteer position with the MNW, your work load is rather minimal. Reporters are responsible for keeping tabs on a selected game region (for example the Weekly Reporter, Kentoku, would be exclusively monitoring the Dasaka Homeland for weekly news) and submitting a synopsis of events on a weekly basis. The length of each synposis is encouraged to be brief, but concrete. Please use past tense for your writing, as if it were a journalistic piece. The Character Reporter has the job of finding a character in the Profiles section to be shown in the Weekly each week, and is encouraged to write a brief to moderate length introduction examining or explaining why the character was chosen. The Game Involvement Reporter's responsibilities are more broad-based: they seek out potential ways for players to have Character Interaction and report to the community via weekly summaries similar to a regional reporter.

All synopses and articles are due in my PM inbox Sunday evenings, PST, for publication the following Monday.

Please leave a comment below regarding ideas for the evolution of the MNW, or to apply for one of the open positions. Thanks!

"OMG WE NEED JOURNALISTS.  Please, if you're a regular player and want to help keep up the game's largest form of OOC news take up a topic listed HERE and help.  Thanks!  Now, as for other things and my personal feelings about the week...  Post the creation of a Feedback topic for the BZPRPG, which seems to have really improved overall game interaction speed, The MNW decided to highlight in blue down in the News section any major events such as staff plot updates or story arcs of importance.  These are things to jump on if you want interaction, and I hope this edit makes your lives easier.  If not, please leave a comment below so I won't spend more time color-coding things than I should.  The week has really picked up in tempo, and the Dasaka party just exploded with interaction and politics.  As busy as things are getting over here with the Weekly, I'm very happy at the crazy whirlwind of awesome activity that's been going on.  On a personal note, Ishi Polzin has 24 hours to get healed.  Unless you wanna' see him die, please help."  ~Kughii

  • After speaking with Relisai, Yumiwa decides to offer a seat on the trip to Mata-Nui to Vilda Soraph to act as a naturalist for the voyage.
  • The drinking game degenerated into a possible sparring session, but was broken up by a fierce word from Princess Desdemona.
  • Echelon and Co. listened to Syvra describe his view on the intricacies of the B.O.A's Zombies.

"This week saw a good dose of player activity across the board. A special mention goes to Tyler & Co. for the Xa-Koro expedition, and also to EW's continued awesomeness with Yumiwa.  And of course, there's also the recent happenings in Pala-Koro to take note off. Things are happening again, let's make the most of it." ~ Geardirector
