Hiya guys :D

As I have stated before I am not new to forums. I am kind of experienced regarding writing and stuff so I thought it would be fun if we could start a ToO newspaper. Of course you all will be paid and everything, my funds are rather short so I could always use donations to help those who are willing to participate.

Basically my plan is to have a newspaper or magazine that discusses the current events of the ToO.

Here are the positions I was thinking of:

Editor -

Co-Editor -

Sponsors- People who will help get this thing running

Hillingdale Haven- the person who writes about what has happened in Hillingdale lately like how far we have gotten on the billion count ect ect

Gowers Field - Yeah I was thinking of taking up this position.

Finneman's Market - pretty self explanatory

Harlequin Theater - Someone who can write about ToOer's interest maybe. Release polls and stuff and write about it.

AIO - One of the most important. They can release ToO'er opinions regarding the AIO and what they think of it.

Odyssey 105 - They give us a scoop on who's been winning contests.

Politics Today - What has happened with our mods and admins maybe we could have an interview?

Editorial - Well someone will be chosen to write a little snippet on what they think about our website...

Graphic Person - I would pay extra for this! Pretty much someone who will organize the articles into a nice format.


Faction - The person who can help by giving reviews about stories and stuff from the various factions or just writing about it.

Advertisement -

Anybody from Crestwood can pay us so that we can advertise their goods on the paper.

This is all I have for now I am still developing it. I guess the newspaper would be released weekly preferably on the weekend. I know it's rather weird that I am popping out all this stuff so fast but then again I've been doing this for awhile so I am just copying formats from old sites...

The pay would be rather good but I have to think about how much I can afford. We would hopefully open our own faction where we can plan and discuss everything that we are going to write.

Well that's all for now kids if you are interested post here or pm me it is quite possible that I missed something so just tell me if I have!

We might have to start our own faction but we'll have to wait to see if more people are interested in joining first :)

We might be needing some new members then we should be able to start a faction if everyone is willing to pitch in. Then we can start to discuss everything including pay ect ect

Danielle Abigail Maxwell

Hillingdale Haven and/or Co-Editor

I do very well in English class (always A's, and teachers think I have some creative asspects), I write stories for a living it seems (JK! But I have written A LOT), I always want to improve my writing, and I bug people about punctuation and spelling errors a lot.... less on grammar, cause even I'm not good at that. And.... because we need something to liven this place up!

Ok guys :D This is great so far I think we are now ready to work on getting our own faction.

I know you guys might be thinking I am jumping ahead of the boat but I think we have some planning to do.

I think we need to have 5 people and 10,000 ToO bucks right? I am willing to contribute 2,000 to 2500 that's all I can spare but I think everyone can afford paying 2,000 each ;)
