What Happened to the Newspaper?
I’ve noticed some people have been curious as to why the weekly newspapers have suddenly disappeared.
Here’s why: I’m working on getting TC3 news set up to be TC4 news. In other words, we’re establishing a new news center, and I’m attempting to get my collection of book and quills back. I really love how it’s turning out so far, and I think it’ll be even better than the last news center! My goal is to have it completed and running by April 1st.
The new news center will have an announcement board for contests and such, several boards with reporters, chests filled with old newspapers, and so on. As for reporters, I may do a re-boot, seeing as a lot of the reporters we have have either left or just been too busy to be a reporter anymore. That way, all of the current reporters will be, well, current. However, if you are a reporter that is master rank or above, you’ll keep your rank, seeing as it’s pretty hard to get there and I want you to be recognized! 😀
How do you be a reporter? If you aren’t already a reporter, ask me to be one. If you are, well, the first goal of a reporter is to find news. If something important or special comes up, and no one is recording it, take out a book and quill and write it down (or just make a note in your head if you have a good memory, I sure don’t, but if you do, go ahead). You can then turn it in to the donations hopper at the news center WITH your name on it (or just /message me), and I’ll then go pick it up and read it. At the end of the book and quill, leave a note saying what you want me to do with it – for example, something like, “Please put this on the website” or “Please put this in the newspaper”. If you tell me to, I’ll put it up here as soon as possible, and if I can’t, I’ll tell you why. Please note that telling me to put something like “My friend’s uncle’s dad’s mother’s cousin’s squirrel ate soup yesterday” on the website most likely won’t be accepted, although I do like squirrels. ^.^ If you write a report about a player’s shop or an interview with them, please mention their full username, so I know who to credit. You can also do special stuff of your own- like holding polls for people to vote on, announcing stuff in chat, or even making a video! By all means, go ahead, being creative is totally awesome!
Sorry for the delay in the newspaper though, I’m really anxious to get back to writing. >-<
