The 'Shroom:Issue XL/Director's Notes
Hi guys. It's been a REALLY busy month for The Core 'Shroom Staff, and I think you're gonna like what we've got planned. So, let me give you a rundown of what's happened over this past month.
That's pretty much it for what the staff has done this month. I know it doesn't sound like much, but believe me -- we've put a LOT of time and effort into getting these things done. Now, as far as hirings and firings/resignations go:
As you can see, we've had a lot of resignations and firings lately, and this is not good, especially considering how short-staffed we are now. Once again, I implore you to please start writing for The 'Shroom. It's not a bad gig, really — you get a whole month to write a decent section, and you just might get a flashy award for your efforts. All you have to do is pass a very simple interview, which consists of five easy questions, and a small sample of what your section will be like. And, if there isn't a section on the sign-up page that appeals to you, suggest a section to me that you would like to write!
People on hiatus don't make notes. Eat healthy.
The next person who sends their section in after the deadline and expects to get it checked won’t. Depending on whether I can geolocate that person’s IP address and the cost of plane tickets, however, they may receive a knife to the head as a consolation prize.
I’m serious now. The deadline is always the Thursday before release. I can not sit at my computer all day on Sunday waiting for your late section to come in. No, not even when you warn me about it. My schedule is not that flexible. I also can’t check your section in five minutes once I have it and then get it out for release.
If you direct a subteam, great! Either teach your writers how to meet deadlines, or check their sections yourself.
