I'm calling all of Gonnos to take part in this competition! I would like to see who is a budding journalist and can write the best newspaper! When writing this newspaper keep in mind it must be a NEW article. Be creative, think outside the box! As beginners protection is coming quickly to an end, for most of you, I would like to see what plans everyone has for the future! Interview leaders from your area, have any PnP you'd like to share? Share it. Use images it always enhances the paper!

I wish you all the best of luck!

  • Advertisement of specific pieces or vote rigging of any nature is prohibited- This includes in-game!

How Will It Work?!

So I had the newspaper all typed up in a message box like one of these and had it sit here for like 2 days while I typed it and added onto it every once in a while. Then when I clicked preview to look over it...it went away and now I gotta type it all over again...yeah :rolleyes:

Eww. That even sounds bad! :( LOL

I hope you are considering re-writing to submit! :)

Have you received any entries?

I'd make one but I'm in the middle of college exams, so Grepo is taking too much time already.

Not a single entry, it's a shame really. You'd expect at least some entries for a 500 gold reward.

We need to get more players in the forums.

I'll try to bring some people from my alliance over here, but that's really the only problem. Of course there's no activity when maybe 3 top 250 players even visit the external forums. Really don't know how to solve that :/

Indeed we do, I appreciate your efforts :) Could always trash talk (within the rules :p ) the other alliances and get them on the forums to defend themselves, not the best activity but it's activity nonetheless. At least then they may actually see these threads. :/

I'll speak to the bird, don't get your hopes up.
