Hiring new authors (UPDATED)

Since no one apparently reads the Update section on the right, I'm making this post.

I'm looking to add 1-2 writers here.

Here's how the application is going to work:

1) Send 1 MV review
2) Send 2 articles that are reaction to news articles.

Send them to antikpopfangirl@yahoo.com

After that, I, along with some of the other authors, will evaluate the authors and pick from there.

After the author(s) are picked, they will have a trial period of 10 articles. After that, we'll decide if the author(s) stay. This is mainly to see if the author is consistent or just a one-hit wonder.

I know I made a mistake the last time adding 6 authors after only seeing two articles from them, so that's why it's going to be a little tougher this time.

And for those of you who apply, quality > length. Don't feel the need to write a novel like Suckmydee used to do.

UPDATE: Changed it three articles. Five is too much at once. However, if there are more than TWO candidates who meet our expectations, we will have a second round where there will be TWO more articles submitted to review.

  6. I would love to try since I visit this site just as frequent as allkpop everyday for the LOLs and critiques that you guys give but hmm 10 articles is a little too much.

    I might not be ready for it yet...

  7. You can send them one a time if you wish, or you can wait til you've written all 5 and send them all at once.

  20. Can someone change the damn banner of the JYP's pants? I vomit in my mouth every time I come to this site. And it's awkward because I'm in Panera, and there's a 12 year old girl sitting behind me trying to stare over my shoulder.
