The Ultimate Writer

Postby DreadLobster » Sat Sep 08, 2012 4:25 pm

If you haven't noticed, MMALinker has a new sub forum: The Ultimate Writer

Van posted the general idea here but I wanted to post a global announcement and sort of explain the idea to all of you.

We will be accepting all kinds of articles that relate to anything relevant to the site, from MMA, to Strength & Conditioning, and everything else you could think of. Comedy and satire may also be welcome (if anyone is familiar with The Onion or Cracked.com... kind of like that).


If you have an article you'd like to submit, for now go ahead and post it in whatever section you normally would, but PM one of us mods/admins with a link to the thread and let us know you'd like us to consider it. Also, if you need help proof reading, formatting, etc, we have some mods who have volunteered and can help with that before you post it, too.

Baby Norris has kind of been the driving force behind getting this started up again, but feel free to PM any of us and we'll get the article where it needs to go. We're assembling a small group of critics (mainly mods) to proofread and decide which articles will be "published" so to speak.

If the article looks good, we'll add it to The Ultimate Writer section. After getting a few articles published, writers will be allowed to post freely in The Ultimate Writer forum, without having to go through the critics. We're currently hashing out details about giving some sort of official recognition to regular contributors, whether that be ranks, name colors, or belts, etc.

I think this is a fantastic way for the creative and knowledgeable members of Linker to show off, as well as give the site some original content. Also, as Van said in the link above, if you're good, you might even end up landing a paying gig with the official MMALinker Blog.

Obviously since this is just starting out, nothing is set in stone. It will probably be evolving quite a bit over the next few months as it gets rolling, so just keep an ear out for changes, updates, and whatnot. Feel free to post any questions, comments, or ideas here.
RIP The Maniac

Can't believe there hasn't been an angry post suggesting it should be called Mixed Martial Writer instead of Ultimate Writer :lol:

They probably just post nut pics all day. That's why they got pissed when liamhillen did it. cause it's "their" thing. :roll:

On Topic, i'm liking this idea. Really looking forward to the comedic pieces, someone needs to get ahold of HumorSolution and get him back here for this.
