You've probably noticed the past few days I've been posting a lot more news lately. This is part of new and upcoming changes to the site to help make it a better community for everyone.
We pride ourselves in saying we have one of the most intercultural sites, with people getting manga translated into 36 different languages. Well today I'm asking those of you who are fluent in English and another language*
to help inform the masses of manga and anime news from your area. I believe there's lots of information about anime and manga that is getting written about or featured in languages other than Japanese and English that I or many others would have no way of knowing about.
Starting is easy. First, some questions. Can you?* Attend events in your area dealing with manga / anime.
* Translate news from your language into English.
* Provide special arrangements for possible interviews with official people dealing with manga / anime.
* Gather material from your local manga / anime store and reporting about that.
* Cover anything else that I haven't thought of in the above ↑If so, then mail me.
(Keep in mind one time translations are welcomed too. Just send in your story with the source and I'll do the dirty work ;)
Pretty much anyone can be a reporter! The only strict requirement would be an above average understanding of English. (We don't want to be known as a site that reports wrong information ^^; )
Once I've gone over your "application", I'll show you what to do and we'll be all set.
Some good reasons for joining the news team would include getting your news read by millions of people every month, that warm fuzzy feeling for helping inform the community and possible invitations to events only staff can attend. *
If you feel like you can help me find more English news, I could use all the help I can get so be sure to volunteer ;)
