Default Recruiting writers for a review site

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine wanted to start a game/other stuff review site, and I just so happened to provide him with it. It grew pretty big, but we outgrew the server, and then site renovation took us down. Not to mention that two small-time writers quit, and then a big-time writer went out, or rather he pulled a Benedict Arnold. For shame.

So, we've got currently the owner of the site, me, 1 maybe, and a very, very dedicated graphic artist so far. There'* a 1TB redundant hard drive array on a multi-processor server with unlimited bandwidth, so we're all set. I'm posting because we're looking for a couple of video gamers who would like to play video games, write reviews, and have their reviews posted online.

Not that it'* my expertise or anything, but this site also goes heavily into anime. I don't actually watch any, but I am the editor of the site, and I therefore read all the stuff on there and work with it to make it read either smoothly or at least without spelling and grammatical errors. All lengthy BC.com posts aside, I do fairly well.

So, the anime dabbling has inspired even the site'* mascot to be an anime guy, hand drawn and computerized into a logo and various other things. Since the server switch just happened a few hours ago, we still don't have much up and running. I'll just post some pictures here, and that should show you what the site is about.

Let me know what you think. Bascially, we're trying to be a small video game review site, and we'll probably have some people reviewing anime, movies, hardware, and cool stuff like that. The last time the site was up, we had almost 30 published reviews with 10 awaiting publishing. We had worked a lot on the forums, videos, and so on. My favorite section was the computer hardware, and I headed that up with hardware reviews. That was a lot of fun.

Generally, since we're about to have another go at it, I figured I might invite you guys to it. Also, this post is unique to BonnevilleClub.com because you're my favorite bunch of unknown Internet faces, so you get first dibs.

I'd definitely be interested in doing some writing for you, if you want to check any of my work (not reviews, but gives you a good idea of my writing style), check out my website (which I stopped working on after the people that were running it with me stepped out on it).
Link is in my sig, or just click here. I am there, as here, Adeianos.

Look, I'm not a stalker. Truly. I am a completely decent person. But I've already looked through the site in your sig. It'* pretty good stuff. As we put together more of the site, we'll see how it all works out, but you're definitely in if you want to participate. We'll be sure to make you a forum admin so you can ban people.

I forgot to mention that you'll get your own POP3 and/or forwarded [email protected] email address. You just pick a handle, and you can write with that and get emails with it. I, being the editor, use The Editorer ([email protected]), and the founder is Betrayer, ([email protected]) Thanks for the quick reply, too. I'm right now on Xfire as custommadename chatting with Betrayer, so whoever wants to join us is perfectly welcome to do so. Help us plan out this site. It'* a really cool and rewarding experience to get such a large project under way.

I'm usually on Xfire as (guess what) Adeianos. I'd join you on there right now, but I have to be up in 6 hours, so that'll have to wait. I'll add you in the meantime.
