To continue a new tradition here at 6P, please take part in voting for Writer of the Month – December 2010! The top 3 vote-getters will get their smiling picture displayed in the sidebar (which you can see below the ad on the right) and they will be deemed the reigning “Writers of the Month.”
Anyone who gets a non-Underground article published during the past month is eligible (excluding YouTubers and news submissions… sorry guys).
You may vote for up to your 5 favorite writers.
Each person’s name is linked to their author page, so you can check out their most recent articles if you need some refreshing as to what everyone wrote during December.
Last month, Kenny Wisdom took home the title, followed closely by Dakota Streck and Zach Lesage.
Voting will end in 1 week and you must be registered in order to vote.
Good luck to all the writers and thanks to all those who participate in the voting!
P.S. Make sure to click “Submit” after you check off your selections!
Oh and one announcement (and a small update) before you vote…
I’ve decided to disband the idea of the “Writing Staff.” Instead, what we will be doing is taking the top 10 vote-getters from the Writer of the Month poll each month and calling them “Featured Writers.” These people we be listed in the left sidebar of the home page as a featured writer, but more importantly…
Now… this month we only had 11 different qualifying contributors (and 2 are editors who get free UG memberships anyway), so everyone on this list will get a 1 month free membership as soon as I have some free time to hook you guys up.
If you’d like to become a contributor to the site, please read over the instructions here.
As for other news, I’ve been busy trying to rebuild the framework of the site. I’m making progress, but it’s just taking a while. My hopes with doing this are that the site will run faster and it will be more flexible, so that it will be easier to make design changes in the future. I might be done in a week or so.
I’m starting to run into problems trying finding ways to intuitively organize content and make things simpler for new visitors, so that’s another thing I’ll try to work on eventually.
I’ll make another post later this week detailing all my goals with the site and where things are headed in 2011.
Anyway… get voting!
Bug of the Month winner for December 2010 is Logan H. who is bugged that I haven’t posted any Underground Freebies. I’m bugged at myself for not doing this, and I’ll try to alleviate this issue when I can.
I have been e-mailing people subscribed to our mailing list snippets from Underground articles though, and I have been keeping up with that for the most part. I’ll try to do something about the UG Freebies though.
Suggestion of the Month goes to Bernardo who suggested that we make a way for newer players to submit decks to get reviewed and turned into articles.
I thought this was a pretty cool idea and it could be somewhat like the deck garage article that were done on Pojo back in the day. I’m not exactly sure how I’ll set this up yet, but if anyone enjoys helping people fix their decks, this would be right up your alley.
Both Logan and Bernardo get to view any 1 Underground article of their choosing for their keen ideas.
And just to keep tabs… last month’s bug was our lack of videos. Still no videos. :( I need to get a new camera and get out to some tournaments.
The suggestion from November was to make Underground articles available for individual purchase, and we did get that implemented! Details here if you want to purchase single articles rather than get a membership.
Thanks for reading all this and happy new year!
