Default Re: URPG Articles

As a general organization format, I see that it would kind of work like this:


There would be a small team of editors. These people would be those who are more or less proficient at writing and will be the ones in direct communication with Ryan. Their duties include:
  • Editing Articles for Grammatical Mistakes
  • Submitting Articles to Ryan for Posting
  • Organizing writers and article ideas
  • Encouraging writer activity!


Each editor is expected to have at least two fields of expertise, such as URPG, Roleplaying, Fan Fiction, etc.

For example, if Emma, Neo, Kenny, and Scott were editors, their fields would be:
  • Emma: URPG, Fan Fiction
  • Neo: Roleplaying, Fan Fiction, Fan Art
  • Kenny: Roleplaying, Fan Fiction, Debate, Anime
  • Scott: Insanity, Beheading

So, let's say I wanted to write a Fan Fiction article. I notice that Sequentio wrote a wonderful story and decide to write an article featuring the story. I edit the article a bit on my own to clean it up, and then submit. Now, logically, because it is a Fan Fiction article, one of the Fan Fiction editors should edit it. In this case, the idea is that if one editor is absent (for reasons such as vacation), then another editor can take the article, edit it, then send it off to be published. This prevents a single person's inactivity from slowing down the system.

And, in the most extreme cases, if all of the section editors are absent, an editor familiar with the section could look it over, edit it, and submit it if they think it's good. It's just like if you can't find a ref to battle, you ask another ref. A team solves the problem of the weight being a burden on a single person.


As for wages, each person will be paid per an article. I also think that editors should be paid the same way, per an article. And editors will be paid a bit more since they have more work to do.

Of course! Though I think it would be rather confusing to pay in any other currency until we settle things a bit.

Ryan gave the ok for us to write articles about everything, but this thread is about URPG specifically.

I have nothing new to say, so thumbs up for my part.

Why are we talking about articles for other sections when the thread is called URPG Articles? =3

URPG is URPG. Discussing articles for other sections in the URPG Trainer's Court is dumb. If other sections want articles, let them figure that out themselves first, and then once both sections have set something up we can look at the possibilities of merging articles.

Perhaps. The Pe2K Times, which was always sponsored by the URPG, featured articles outside of our section. It was a way the two worlds worked together to create a better community. We're not distinct forums, we're symbiotic. One should help the other because we rely on each other.

PE2K attracts members to the URPG and the URPG maintains a good portion of PE2K activity. This idea, like the PE2K Times, follows in the same tradition.

I don't see why we can't offer money for any articles written. :s I mean, it promotes activity in the paper as well as activity in URPG, and could possibly bring some members who stay out of the URPG to the URPG.

I kinda have to agree with Mike on this. I'm all in favour of this, I think it's a great idea, but I think that only URPG articles should be rewarded with URPG money. I think that ASB articles would be cool; I'll have to discuss this with Nic and see what he thinks about it himself. But yeah, I'd say leave the responsibility of articles for other sections to those other sections themselves, regarding rewards and how the system would work.

This sounds pretty radical, Harry. I'd love to participate however you need.

Maybe you could start with just URPG and expand if it's successful?

If in fact you're going to include ASB and such, perhaps a chart for money exchange?

1,000 in URPG money is vastly different than ASB money.
A small conversion chart would be nice - that is if you're paying all sections/etc.
