Opportunities at Gears Online

Post by Tachyon » Tue Dec 02, 2008 5:21 pm

What are the opportunities to get involved with Gears Online in 2009?

Convention/Event Reporter
If you hear of or attend a convention or event that has to do with mecha, anime/manga or Japanese culture send in a report. Photos would be great too.

Japan Correspondent
If you're in Japan or just visit it please tell us about what you see. Photos would be great too. Someone stationed in Japan reporting on topics of interest there would be ideal.

Toy/Model Reporter
New toys and models are constantly coming out. Reports and images on new products would be very interesting for Gears Online site visitors.

Video Game Reporter
A lot of anime/mecha video games come out each year but Gears Online has no reports or reviews of them. Your help would be appreciated.

Blog Post Writer
The Gears Blog will start up in 2009 and posts from mecha fans would be great. The blog will cover mecha, anime/manga, science-fiction and Japan (history, culture, current events, etc.).

Web Reporter
New Web sites about mecha and/or anime and manga topics are starting up all the time. Reports on new sites or new additions to old sites would be great.

Anime/Manga Reporter
Someone who writes about new anime and manga coming out. It doesn't have to be a commitment. You can submit pieces whenever you want.

Translator
Someone who translates Japanese text into English.

Profile Writer
Someone who does write ups of specific mechs or characters from anime or manga stories.

I write profiles now (need to work on some new ones! Lemme know when you are ready) but I'm also an avid videogamer...mostly JRPG's and Mecha games...the kinda stuff thats perfect for reviewing on this site. I'll write a few reviews for some of the old classics if it'll help.
Shinei!

Sounds nice. I want 2009 to be a much more active year for the site.
