    How to Become an Articles Contributor

    Introduction
    Hello and welcome to the Articles subforum! The goal of the Articles project is to create various articles about topics relevant to Pokémon Online such as commentary on various Pokémon and sets that they can use, PO News and current events, Player Interviews, and much more. If you are interested in becoming an Articles Contributor, here are a few areas where we could use your help.

    Ways to Contribute
    1. Writing Articles. Obviously, if we are going to be creating several articles with varying topics, we need people who can write them! We also need people who can contribute ideas for content, such as additional sets or options a Pokémon might have, when articles are in review.
    2. Grammar Patrol. Once the content of articles is set, articles need to be checked to make sure that they are free of grammar errors. If you are confident in your grammar skills, this could be a good way for you to contribute.
    3. Creating Artwork. Having grammatically correct articles with cool content is nice, but good artwork can help take an article to the next level. Basically, we need artists who can create banners for various article types and possibly additional artwork for special articles.
    How YOU Can Become an Articles Contributor
    If you are interested in contributing in one of these areas, submit a brief example of what you can do to @E.T. via forum PM and I will review your work.
    • For those interested in writing articles, PM me one to two paragraphs about something that catches your interest, or it could even be a preliminary stage of an article you would like to write.
    • For people interested in Grammar Patrol, you will demonstrate your skill by grammar checking an excerpt from an article that will be provided to you.
    • For artists, your submission could be a banner or a couple of examples of your work.
    Once you become an Articles Contributor, you will be able to post in the Article Review subforum and get started!

    We could really use more Articles Contributors! We are in need of people who can write articles, people who can check grammar, and people who can create banners and artwork. If you aren't familiar with the types of articles we create, this Article Archive is a fast way to find articles that have been released so far, and you can also see the article-making process in action in the Article Review forum, but only Articles Contributors can post there! To become an Articles Contributor, send a forum PM to @Joyverse and @E.T. like it says in the OP of this thread!
