I was thinking of making a Hopscotch Newspaper, and here it is! So, anyone want to join?

Details

It will be a group of people who make a Hopscotch newspaper that is published weekly (unless there’s “extra” or something).
It will not be coding. It will be kinda like Channel 014 Television. Someone will post the newspaper with all the articles put together in one post. We could make a project on Hopscotch for it too.
You can get a job. For more info, see the jobs.

Newslist

Ask if you want to join. This is a tag list. Each time a new newspaper is published, you WILL be tagged. You can drop out at any time.

Jobs

Applying for a job
Please go for one that suits your interests, skills, and talents, and please don’t get upset if the job is already taken. You may drop out at any time. You may apply for more than one job.

Writers

The writers will find stories and ask an editor if the story can be put in the newspaper. If an editor says yes, the writer will go type it up and bring it back to an editor for spellchecking and grammar-checking. If the editor says no, you could ask another editor if the story is good.

Sign-up form
Do you want to be a writer?
Would you like to scour the forum and Hopscotch for juicy stories?
Would you not type up stories about gossip/rumors or ones that make people look bad?
Do you have good grammar?
Are you on often enough?
Would you be nice and not get mad if your story isn’t accepted?
What column would you like to write for?
Are you knowledgeable about that column?
Would you ask the Hopscotcher if it’s okay to make a story with them in it before making it?

Advertising

We may have extra space in the newspaper, so you could advertise a contest or club! Or would this count as spam?

I will be editing this, just saying.
Should we call this the Daily Byte or something?
@omtl

It’s the same for me. I really like this idea though and I remember when somebody did this a while ago! I don’t think that they have continued with that newspaper though…

Yeah! I feel like the newspaper concept has been brought in back and forth for a while, on both the app and the forum. I hope this time it will stick!
