Hey! You may remember that MattyFTM was hosting a thread similar to this, but sadly he has decided it would be best if someone else did it. So, that' someone else is me. I'm not one hundred percent sure if snide wants this feature still going as I'm waiting for a PM reply, but since I'm impatient I'm setting up this thread anyway. Without further ado, let's get down to shinbiz. I mean business.
What is the Sunday Bomb Drop?The Sunday Bomb Drop is an outline of community events and happenings over the last week that is posted on the GB news section on a - surprise, surprise - Sunday. It consists of a bullet pointed list of interesting links as well as the summary of GB news. It used to be written up by the staff, but it became time consuming for them and so it was handed over to members to write. This is where you come in.
What is in a Bomb Drop?Here is an example of a bomb drop, here is another, and here is a final one for good luck. The layout should become apparent, but I feel that format has now become redundant. The news and review sections have their own pages, and including them in a news post just seems pointless. I am going to discuss with snide if he will be okay with some of the changes I have in mind, and if they get the green light then I shall update this section with an in-depth guide on how to 'write' a bomb drop. Hold tight until then.
I want to 'write' a Bomb Drop!Awesome, you've come to the right place. Please bear in mind that I use the term 'write' loosely. There is very little actually writing that you need to do, and it instead consists of rounding up top community content. So, please do not sign up if you've no desire to seek out interesting content, but on the other hand you do need to be able to construct grammatically correct English sentences. Please reply to this thread if you will be interested in 'writing' a bomb drop. There will be a different person writing the bomb drop each week.
- It is not final if the bomb drop will definitely return (it probably will, folks) or in what format.
- Just because you reply to this post does not mean you will be picked straight away.
- Make sure your reply to this thread is decent and not "yh i wan 2 do this". First impressions and all that.
