Newsletter Revamp Incoming As some folks may have noticed in the current newsletter the format has changed slightly since the last post. This is part of an ongoing effort to revamp the newsletter into something else that is more engaging for the player base. The next Newsletter will have articles written by, you, the players. What will we accept? Anything that is Forum appropriate but here are a few examples. Publish an IC story? Can do so. However please keep length in mind here. If its too long it may not get featured. Also if it is already featured on the forums in the Tales of Altera section, likelihood of it being shown is small. Roleplay/Writing Tips? Everyone on the server even our best writers can benefit from these sorts of things. Advertise your City, Town or organization? Write a small piece advertising it and we will publish it for you. Useful Basement Threads- Cooking Tips, Movie, TV shows, and or game reviews could also be published Want to enter something for next month's newsletter? PM Lady Alec and Immerael QnA - [Will be expanded as/if we receive questions] What if I'm not that great of a writer but I can make a video? We will publish it so long as your video doesn't break forum rules. What about Art submissions? A limited amount of art may be advertised as well. If one person is highlighted one issue they likely won't be highlighted the next issue so feel free to continue submitting art each cycle.
