News Hound As a news hound your primary goal is to go frothing and wild-eyed into the world wide web and ring it for all the news possible. This is another job that is very time intensive as you'll be visiting news sites, mod sites, gaming sites, forums, IRC channels and so on looking for news to post every day. You can apply to do Half-Life news, Half-Life 2 news, or both. DutiesRegards, Skyrider
Every visitor to the site wants as much up-to-date news as possible, therefore news hounds have to be active. Broadband is recommended for all the surfing and idling a news hound ends up doing, but it isn't a mandatory condition for applying. In fact, one of the best Files Network news hounds is a dialup user, so 56k'ers are welcome. You must possess solid English skills when it comes to grammar and spelling, no one wants to stumble through an article full of misspelled words and indecipherable sentences. Your e-mail application will demonstrate your competence in that area.
- Locate news through various forms of media such as websites, IRC channels, forums, e-mail, or magazines. You do not have to have any magazine subscriptions to apply of course (just helps when looking for additional news).
- When a news item is found, add it to the appropriate website. Along with your own comments on the piece.
- Add any relevant images to the article.
- Make sure there are no errors, broken links, spelling mistakes, etc. in your own comments. Leave quoted material just as it was written.
