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!

"I'm happy to have joined the Mata Nui Weekly team! Interaction's picked up over these last couple of weeks, what with the party and the Piraka attack, and Kentoku is the topic I most reliably follow, so I've picked either the best or the worst time to join, depending on the point of view... Anyway, I look forward to delivering to you the exciting news that will undoubtedly come from the Archipelago in future weeks!" ~Ghosthands
 
"I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the arc of my flaghsip character, Ferron. Toatapio, Shadowhawk, Alex Turner, Gravity and Kughii. Thanks again to you all and best wishes for the RPG's future." ~Geardirector
 
"The MNW is proud to welcome Ghosthands aboard our little bobbing vessel in the ocean of information.  He'll be responsible for towing the line in the Kentoku Archipelago, which brings a wave of relief as he applies his scientific skills to creating reproducible, highest quality blurbs for the News section.  On a personal note I have begun my exodus from this glorious game, but I do plan to stick around until the end of the 2013 arc, possibly carrying one PC into the future.  What does this mean for the MNW?  At the moment, nothing!  You'll still be getting your favorite OOC newsletter delivered to your N&D topic each week." ~Kughii
