Content Team's Call of Duty
Many of you have noticed that the flow of content on this site has become sluggish. Sure a few more articles are getting posted here and there, but it's certainly not enough, and many of you have requested that the Content Team step up its game. Well folks, I'm here today to tell you all that the revitalization starts now. It's time to make the front page lively again!

For starters, Miles of SmashWiki and I took a look at all of the members we had and purged all of the ones that were inactive. After cleaning house, we were left with a small (but awesome) core of individuals to bring you, the readers, content. However, this core lacks the numbers and types of contributors we need to truly bring you the rebirth of all that is good, amazing, and holy in AiB Content Land. That's why this article has been made: to fill the potholes and recruit new members. We're looking for bright, new faces that are willing to be active writers and contribute top-notch content that the community wants to read, and we're hoping some of you answer the call!

To make the selection process easier and clarify what we're looking for, we've divided the content we wish to produce into four sections (with descriptions for each). Here's the list to choose from:


1. Offline Tournament Coverage: Writers in this category will be expected to write about upcoming tournaments, participate in covering major events (Apex, WHOBO, SiiS, etc.)via things like live blogs and Twitter updates, post tournament wrap-up articles and information compilations, cover general happenings for smash scenes in various regions, and so on. Note: This is what we'll be recruiting the most applicants for, as content's been bone dry for this category and we want to do better.

2. Interviews: Content like this requires aspiring content contributors who like to be sociable, are up on the scene, and have the ability to ask questions the community wants to hear! As the name implies, this is the category for those who wish to interview top players, well-known hosts, or any other significant figures in the Smash community.

3. Videos: Tired of replay blogs not getting recommended? Do you have a video camera and regularly record footage of happenings at offline events? Interested in doing a video blog about what's happening in your local scene or the smash community? If so, apply to be a videographer!

4. Miscellaneous: As Enrish mentioned in his article, "Positive Change for AiB," we're going to try to provide entertainment for both the competitive and non-competitive users. All of these users are part of our community, and we want to do our best to cater to them. For this category, we're looking for writers that have ideas for creative pieces of content that'll be engaging, fun, and interesting for everyone. Note: We'll only take a small amount of applicants for this compared to other topics, but don't let that stop you if you've got a great idea! 
                                                     
                                        
Feel free to include anything you want in the application (resumes, sample writings, etc.) that you believe will show us why you deserve a spot. Please note, however, that it's required that you have some idea of what you wish to write about, so please make sure to clearly state it. (And don't put something down just to put something down; while you can easily write articles for more than one category or change from one to another, YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO WRITE SOMETHING, OR YOU WILL BE REMOVED!) When you feel like you're good to go, send an email to [email protected] (and be sure to include your username!) The deadline for applications will be a week from now, March 27th, at midnight PST. After that time, Miles of SmashWiki, lightlanayru, and I will review the applications, make our decisions, and notify all of the applicants once all decisions have been made.

That's about all there is to it. Thanks for taking the time to read, and hopefully contribute to make this community better and rebirth of AiB content successful. We hope to see a huge wave of applicants, and good luck to all that apply!
