    Works fine for me. Might have caught me while I was resetting the server to update something.

    First link works, not the second (Looking for staff). It brings up the website but the page is not found.

    A friend of mine Axemaniac runs a great steam game review site. He's always looking to expand his user base.

    Here's a sample

    Here's a good example of someone who's average at writing (me) putting out halfway decent news articles http://overlordgaming.us/archives/165

    I'm interested, I can pretty much play and enjoy every game genre out there and I already wrote some past amateur reviews myself (steam, blogs, etc)

    I have bad upload speed so while I wanted to stream and do video reviews so badly, I couldn't because I live in a third world country and our internet sucks.

    I've read the requirements for the writer reviews, If I understand it correctly. I need to do at least 3 game reviews of my own choosing per week right?(aside from assigned reviews) I have written some reviews already(like on steam reviews and some of my blogs), If I somehow get accepted. can I use them on your site?

    We actually just changed the per week requirements, they're now.

    using your own old material is only acceptable if you can delete it from the old websites. It's against our policies for the same piece to be posted on multiple sites.

    We could use a hardware reviewer. Our content team currently sits at 10 (with me being one and mostly acting as an editor) so we're about at our max for article writers. Still actively seeking one or 2 more. And definitely looking to add more streamers.

    What I REALLY need is one or 2 people interested in being editors with some experience in the field.

    Have a look at the site if you haven't in awhile, bunch of fresh game reviews posted.


    Also if anyone is turned off by us using wordpress, rest assured I hate it aswell. Which is why I'm about 50% done with our joomla based site!

    WordPress isn't bad, it just has a terrible forum interface.
