Due to [COLOR=silver]un[/COLOR]popular demand [COLOR=silver]expressed via the use of a rusty pitchfork[/COLOR], the experience requirement has been changed to a minimum of 300 posts. Posts made within the Spam forum, Shameless Advertiser, Leisure Games, and private forums do not count. Furthermore, 300 deleted posts do not count either, and any proof of such an "accomplishment" will be forwarded to the proper authorities with accompanying punishments left to their descretion.

300 posts? Why not lower the forum age requirement with 6 months or so?

Do you still have an open position for a super-hero who thinks that working for a newspaper as underpaid nerd is the best possible cover?

I would have to check with human resources and see our salary budget. However, illustrations for our articles would prove to be helpful for our younger audiences. Especially those who have slipped by COPPA.

I underestimated the vacancy left behind. We are looking for photographers, reporters, writers, and the like. Just fill out an application.

I've put in 10 years with the Federal Government, does that count for anything?
