Ok, um well, sounds cool, guess I will try out.

So, what do we have to do to get a position?

A good idea will be that you publish the newspaper on a website and then get people to read it in their free time, instead of getting the contents in posts or in topics.
I don't think I can join your project since I'm already on a project of my own. ^^;;

What do you think we should do, If we have 10 Articles, We should have :

Pair Up and Romance News , Of Course, what other Topics should we have?

DragonTrainer
November 20th, 2003, 02:35 PM
Cool, I'm a staff member!!

Maybe we could have events happening that week, or upcoming events.

Dizzy
November 20th, 2003, 03:54 PM
Well It was supposed to be a Monthly Newsletter but we could get topics weekly!

What do you think the main Topics should be?

Frostweaver
November 20th, 2003, 04:30 PM
of course... talk about each MOTM results... it's a major event for PC too. You can compare the results with last month, and say oh "such and such" members are getting more and more votes than ever before, and etc...

or perhaps articles based on each part of the forum. Few articles on Pokemon games, few on fanarts, and a few on fanfics too.

DragonTrainer
November 20th, 2003, 06:28 PM
Yes good idea.

Each forum can have it's own section, about what is happening in there and such!

PokeMaster3000
November 21st, 2003, 12:55 AM
alright!!!! I'm a staff member!!!

I can do some reporting on Pair Ups and MOTM, I hang out in those threads a LOT!!!

November 21st, 2003, 01:27 AM
Yes good idea.

Each forum can have it's own section, about what is happening in there and such!
If Dizzy takes up this idea I will join, since I doubt nobody else will do the newly added Pokemon Manga section.

Dizzy
November 21st, 2003, 02:55 PM
Sure Austin.

I can take that Idea into Consideration DragonTrainer. Sounds very cool. We should also have an Interview section ^_^.

DragonTrainer
November 21st, 2003, 03:41 PM
Alright, when will you decide?

What would we do in said interview section?

Dizzy
November 21st, 2003, 03:53 PM
Well we were thinking of Randomly selecting a Fairly active member to interview on what they think of PC.

We also though of interviewing mods and Admins for these Articles.

StarLightUmbreon
November 21st, 2003, 04:46 PM
Well we tend to ask people what part they will want and see how that works out.
This will be one of the thing we will talk about at the meeting.

Dizzy
November 29th, 2003, 02:57 PM
Instead of Having a Meeting on an IM system, We'll just have a meeting in this thread.


This is what we should have.

If anyone has any sugesstions, maybe we could put it on a website, how many people want to help?

StarLightUmbreon
December 1st, 2003, 12:55 AM
Soory for not beening here. Looks like no one has post about the above queation.

BTW: is Dizzy realy Booted out or is he just saying he is?

Frostweaver
December 1st, 2003, 01:28 AM
no... Dizzy is not booted out (he's not even close to being banned). He just happens to type that in himself.

(note: i have nothing to do with this newspaper... except reading the finished product that is XD)

Rift
December 1st, 2003, 08:56 AM
Same with me frostweaver! ^_^; im interested in seeing what it looks like when its done!

Dizzy
December 1st, 2003, 07:13 PM
Off-Topic : Yeah, I deserved to be banned. I mean, i like PC and all, but these last few weeks, I've been getting more unpopular to the point where i might even leave PC for good. I'm not really that of an Important member.. No one really cares, I was never really an Important member to begin with. I was just that stupid spammer who everyone hated..

Well once the newspaper is completed, im leaving PC, atleast you'll have something to remember me by.

PokeMaster3000
December 3rd, 2003, 07:28 AM
You're leaving?

;_; first 22sa and now Dizzy... all the good people are leaving.

Phantom Angel
December 3rd, 2003, 07:35 AM
No, don't leave us!
Yea, I need you, at least.
Do you really care about that you are unpopular?
That thing didn't made you happy.
Even more sad.
How pathetic.
Leave because of unpopular.
Never heard of that.

Dragon Man
December 3rd, 2003, 01:25 PM
Please don't leave Dizzy. I think you are popular and an important member. So is there more news on the topics besides the ones already mentioned? By the way I might join the newspaper. I have to think about it. :confused:

Phantom Angel
December 4th, 2003, 09:54 AM
I think I would put WWN(Wars World News) on newspaper.
I will make some comic.
And add it in newspaper. XD

PokeMaster3000
December 5th, 2003, 05:02 AM

Dizzy, I have to say something right now, and if you hate me for it, then so be it:This is like the 20th time that you said we hate you.Nobody hates you, so get over it man.Please quit bringing it up, it makes you look extremely pathtic every time you do this

Sorry about that, I just had to say it

So, are we ever going to complete the newspaper?

Phantom Angel
December 5th, 2003, 05:50 AM
I havedelete your post, DT.
It will made Dizzy even more upset.
If you want to know why, ask me.
If you don't want to know, don't ask.
And other s-mod, if you recover that post, I will delete this topic.
Seriously.
Let's drop it down.
Okay?

StarLightUmbreon
December 5th, 2003, 01:13 PM
Got bust agian. This time of year can be time consuming. Has Dizzy left??? I hope not. Are we still gonig to do the papaer??? Some many question...........................................................and no Dizzy in sight.

DragonTrainer
December 5th, 2003, 02:29 PM
No, don't leave us!
Yea, I need you, at least.
Do you really care about that you are unpopular?
That thing didn't made you happy.
Even more sad.
How pathetic.
Leave because of unpopular.
Never heard of that.
Wait, you delete my post, yet you are calling him sad and pathetic as well

Besides, I was not insulting him, I was just telling him some things that needed to be said

I really just don't see why you deleted my post and didn't delete that one I just quoted.Hmph..... :tired:

So, I think you should let my post remain, so he can see what he is doing wrong, and can clear it up.

Dizzy
December 5th, 2003, 02:30 PM
I didnt even read your post XD... Its not like its bad or anything... is it?

DragonTrainer
December 5th, 2003, 02:33 PM
No, not at all, I think it shouldn't have been deleted, I just had somethings to say.

So, can I hearthe opinion of any other mods besides Phantom on my post he deleted?

MoonLight
December 5th, 2003, 02:57 PM
Well i never even seen the post and posts should only be deleted if they are really spammy or if they have sexual things in them that is all

DragonTrainer
December 5th, 2003, 03:04 PM
Exactly, and the post he deleted had none of those, I wasn't even insulting anyone.

I think it was power abuse at work

latiosspud
December 5th, 2003, 03:07 PM

I most certainly agree. He shouldn't be a mod.

DragonTrainer
December 5th, 2003, 03:13 PM
Well, maybe, because he has so little experience, and abuses his ppower too much.

But can my post be broght back?

MoonLight
December 5th, 2003, 03:17 PM
Hmm i don't know if they can be brought back if they are deleted and your right he's abusing his powers way too much

Shining Arcanine
December 5th, 2003, 03:44 PM
Dragon Trainer, I restored your post.

I havedelete your post, DT.
It will made Dizzy even more upset.
If you want to know why, ask me.
If you don't want to know, don't ask.
And other s-mod, if you recover that post, I will delete this topic.
Seriously.
Let's drop it down.
Okay?

First moderator to delete this topic I will ban. Got it?

December 5th, 2003, 05:43 PM
Thank you SA, Iknew that if I had done something wrong on my post, I wouldn't even have posted it at all.

Dizzy
December 5th, 2003, 08:22 PM
Ya anyways does anyone have anything good for the newspaper?

DragonTrainer
December 6th, 2003, 05:50 AM
Well, all we need to do is just say what is going on in each sction, and pos important events that are going on

Dizzy
January 14th, 2004, 05:30 PM

Frostweaver
January 14th, 2004, 05:57 PM
very nice Dizzy... it's a lot more organized now with listed headings and now a "goal" to aim the newspaper towards.

Don't forget that OCC can have *** Topics as well, not just Mixed Voting Poll.

Should also open a small section for each PC club to advertise themselves so readers who are interested will join a club that they want to too... that will certainly give the clubs a new way to get more members to join ^_^

Dizzy
January 14th, 2004, 06:02 PM
Thanks for the sugesstions frostweaver, I'll go back and edit them later. Where is my newspaper committee now lol.

January 14th, 2004, 07:51 PM
Wow, you're on the look out for two commitees now Dizzy!
*looks at newspaper ideas*
Now that's a good newspaper! You've certainly decided to put the best topics on the newspaper! I can't wait too see a finished copy!...how much will it be?....just kidding hehe.....

Omega-Brendan
January 16th, 2004, 03:23 AM
Hmmm... Count me in for the Manga Section!!! I was the one who suggested it don't forget... I think it was supposed to be me that was supposed to be mod...

Dizzy
January 16th, 2004, 11:21 AM
Um the last line has nothing to do with the newspaper, but sure we can have a manga section. :)

Frostweaver
January 18th, 2004, 03:20 PM
First of all, I'll like it if someone changes the name of this topic to "Second" newspaper. We did have one in old PC.

Secondly, what happened to the newspaper now...? Isn't Dizzy and a crew of people supposedly working on this?

Thirdly, wonder why Alyssa is not helping with the newspaper as she is the true original starter of the PC Newspaper...

Dizzy
January 19th, 2004, 02:17 PM
I don't know, I guess that it's not the first ever Pokemon Community Newspaper then. Maybe a staff member could edit the title. She doesn't have to work on this if she doesn't want too, nor am I forcing anyone to work on it. :)

BTW maybe we can't work on it because we dont have enough people but if no more people want to join then I'll just make it myself.. :)

Arwen
January 19th, 2004, 02:20 PM
I'm sorry, but I cannot edit the topic because I don't mod this forum... I'll ask someone to edit for you... unless you already ask them... ^_^

John Denver
January 20th, 2004, 04:32 PM
It's already been edted I beleive...gosh...why was phantom a mod...foolish...

I think this newspaper thing will go good, when do you think it'll be out then?

and BOO ya!
