We're looking for people who want to write for the front page
Why would you?
Plenty of people are already writing long well thought out posts. Unfortunately those posts get lost in longer threads and therefore don't get read as often as they should
This makes what you write more visible. Also it can easily be shared on social media etc
Why are we having a front page again?
Mostly because articles generate conversations in the forum
Also it helps revenue. Blog posts get better google hits than forum posts.
We run this place at a very low cost and don't have many ads (we'll have to increase that slightly). However we do hover around the break even mark and any losses are covered by a couple of the admins.
Yes we could ask for donations but we would rather not.
Ideally a handful of people 'donating' by adding content will mean we don't have to ask people to donate cash.
Any extra cash will just be thrown back into the site, a faster server etc
What to write about
Anything, as long as it fits within the 'Sports Forum' rules
We aren't a news site and there's no point pretending to be. So it doesn't have to be game previews/reviews. It could be nostalgia stuff whatever.. We'll work it out as we go
Yes kiwis can be insular and chippy. Please enlighten us.
Say you are interested in this thread or pm me
There is an instruction forum that I'll give you access to https://www.forum.thesilverfern.com/category/24/authors
It is different software to the forum, so you need a new account. Unfortunately I need to send an email invite.
So have you correct email in your TSF profile, or pm me another email address
