Old Jan 6th, 2010, 10:19 PM        I-Mockery Guest Weekly Columnists - YOUR CHANCE TO SHIIIIINE!
Ok, so the title is pretty self-explanatory, but I'll provide some more details.

Basically, we're looking to bring in some volunteers to help out with the Weeklies ( http://www.i-mockery.com/weeklies ) section of the site each week. Myself and the other guys don't always have time to write for the Weeklies section, and with Max Burbank on hiatus, we have 3 writers and 4 sections to cover. As a result, we're having to switch off on pulling double-duty for weekly reviews, which takes away from time we could be spending on writing our full length articles. So that's where you guys come in. We're looking for additional writers to cover those extra Weekly spots. You'll get to see your work featured on the homepage of I-Mockery and receive feedback from bajillions (ie: tens) of fans! You don't have to do reviews each week, you'll just have to submit one once in a while since we'll be rotating reviewers each week.

If you're interested, please reply to this thread (no PMs please) and we'll be in touch. Please mention what categories you would like to write in most (video games, movies, comics, music).

Thanks to all of you who offer to help out!

I kinda want to, if for no other reason than to be doing it instead of someone like zeldaqueen.

I'm not the strongest writer, but I know my comics well! I wouldn't mind helping with the comic reviews.

I've sort of missed how the review portion of the site used to be entirely fan submitted. Even though most of the writing submitted was pretty bad, those submitted by me especially.

I'd like to be a part of this. Is there any criteria to what's reviewed or is it just whatever strikes your fancy?

Oh yeah, definitely mention what categories you would most like to write in (video games, movies, comics, music). This doesn't guarantee you would be assigned that particular category, but we'll do our best to accommodate everybody.

As for criteria, it's whatever you feel like writing about as long as it hasn't already been covered in the Weeklies section.

I have a few ideas for things I would like to see reviewed I had thought of gently suggesting, but it seems now I could hoard those ideas and volunteer to review them myself.

I formally throw my hat into the volunteer ring. I have something for any of the 4 categories so any one will be fine.

I can't really right music reviews since I don't listen to much music but I'm fine with any other category.

I'd want to try my hand at this, I've been wanting to get back into writing. I could do movies, comic books, and video games.

It's like I'm interested, but I already spend a lot of time working on the show's site and stuff. I gotta give it some serious thought.

It was fun writing for the site before, but that was when I was 16 or so and my name on the staff page was SUPER COOL. Still, it was fun.

Ever since the days of the user-submitted reviews and seeing mine in the spotlight, I've had the itch for more. I hereby announce my intentions to attempt to write for movies and games. I'm actually already sitting on an asston of reviews already for movies (being a man who hoards VHS and DVDs like a bomb shelter's can goods section) and games (having become a collector and now possessing everything from NES to Wii, Playstation to PS3 and much more)... I just wish I wasn't lazy and I could have submitted some a long time ago.

Missed that one. Did you say Type O sounded like the Def Leppard of Death metal?
