Newspaper of the Month/Year archive.

Post by tommot on 2013-11-02, 14:22


I will be using this topic to share and archive the articles i write about the Newspaper of the Month series.
This will also include a record of the Newspaper of the Year(held during the months December/January.


The record will look as followed:

  1. The link to the in-game article(including it's name)
  2. Date and/or time that article was published
  3. The name of that months/years winning newspaper and it's owner
  4. A spoiler with the in-game content of the article
  5. Extra note of interest(if needed)

In the spoiler below you will see the rules or method of selection for the choices of that Newspaper(revision2).
How it is done...:
[b][u]Notes and rules(guidelines).
I will explain in some way how the selections are made and how voting will proceed. I also add some rules on how the series work.

Notes:
► From the 27th of every month until the next 27th of every month i will keep track of all articles published in eBelgium. I will have a text-document with all the url's/links to this months articles(with the exception of government newspapers). i call that document the review-list.

► Any newspaper owner/editor who has made publications(articles) between 27th and 29th of every month but did not make any other articles that month will be added to the next month review-list.

► On the 27th of every month i will review all articles and determine there quality and then see how many newspaper owner/editors have published and select 8 of them(the candidates) and at last on the 28th the selection will be reduced to 4(the nominees).

► These 4 selected newspapers will be placed in the poll i set up(see the previous article). This poll has 2 things to fill in:
_1) Your profile-link(poll will clarify what it is)
_2) 4 possible selections named as this: newspaper owners name followed by newspaper-link(so that you can take a look at the work of the nominee's).

► The voting article will be published on the 29th of every month(28th in February) and this poll will last until it is no longer visible in the Top News feed on the main page(19.30 CET officially closed). The publication of the winner will be made at most 2 days after the voting ends or the next following weekend.
-----
Rules(guidelines):
Read/remember these lines to avoid disqualification.
► Foreign newspapers that publishes an article in the Belgian news-feed will not qualify for this series. The idea is to promote and stimulate Belgian Media.

► The article review-list can be available to you personally and on request only(use in-game pm).

► Newspapers that where selected as nominee can not be re-selected as a nominee for the next month. These newspapers will have to wait for a new chance in the month after that one. To put it short: you can only be a nominee every 2 months.

► If a nominee removes his last publication before the end of the voting-process, he/she will loose their status as nominee(this also applies to candidates).

► If a publication made within that month is in violation with eRepublik law, the newspaper will be disqualified for that month.

► A permanent ban in-game will also disqualify a newspaper. Temporary bans are not a reason to disqualification unless the ban is related to the newspaper itself.

► Anyone can vote!!! It does not matter what your nationality nor affiliation might be. Anyone is allowed to vote!!!

► Belgian publications made by foreing newspapers in the belgian news-feed will be added to a seperate document. This seperate list will be used for the NotY awards of 2015 and the following years after that.

► This new revised guidelines/rules will be valid starting from 27th January 2015 until a new revision has been drafted.
-----
I will retain the right to make the selections of the 4 nominee's for every edition. I will do my best to make the selection as fair as possible and from a neutral point of view(no pre-determinations of a candidate).

Note: any Newspaper of the Month created in a government newspaper will not be added as they are part of the governments records. Belgian Encyclopedia(where you can find these articles)
I also keep a record(below in the spoiler) of those articles that were published during my time as SoMF.
Newspaper of the Week/Month(gov. newspaper):

* Day 1,998, 09:52 - Newspaper: La_Flute_enchantee - Owner/editor: Elynea
* Day 2,005, 05:42 - Newspaper: THE H.O.P.E. REPORT POST - Owner/editor: G.W.JUNIOR

Newspaper of the Month(September 2013)

Post by tommot on 2013-11-02, 14:42

Newspaper of the Month(September 2013)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/newspaper-of-the-month-september-2013--2325468/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,144, 09:16
* Life with MaryamQ - MaryamQ
*
Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(September 2013)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Life with MaryamQ
Owner/editor: MaryamQ
Most recent article: [MQ for CP]Stability, Strength, Service, pt. 1

"Life with MaryamQ" is a newspaper who tries to focus mainly on the philosophical matters in-game with sometimes some political news and a touch from her Real Life. She sometimes also tries to tackle the social problems that occures within eRepublik.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I started the newspaper when I was a new player back in V1. I had an idea I might write about restoring and maintaining health, a real issue at the time, but I found others were already doing it, and better than I could. I didn't really start writing until after I came to eBe and became involved in politics.

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: I don't get a lot of comments that I feel are negative, but when I do, it depends on the source. Some I try to learn from, and some I ignore. I don't recall, however, that they have ever influenced something I wrote.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper and/or have they changed?
Answer: My present plans for the paper include sprucing it up a bit graphically, and beyond cosmetics, I hope to continue to support the idea that "We will not stand by", and I also want to do more military writing, with a particular focus on the achievements of eBelgian soldiers in general and Green Militia in particular. I am working with a friend from another eCountry on the possibility of a joint project, which has been launched but is on the back burner while a friend is taking a break for RL.

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: I would like to encourage new writers to find their own voice. Don't try to write like anyone else. Find what moves you, and write about it, and keep writing. There is always room to grow if you keep trying.


Here is you well earned badge:

Extra notes to clarify things.

Some may have noticed that this months selection was not well. Not that the chosen winner did not deserve it, she most certainly did.
I will explain in some way how the selections are made and how voting will proceed.

► From the beginning of every month until the 27th of every month i will keep track of all articles published in eBelgium. I will have a text-document with all the url's/links to this months articles(with the exception of government newspapers). i call that document the review-list.
► Any newspaper owner/editor who has made publications(articles) between 27th and 29th of every month but did not make any other articles that month will be adde to the next month review-list.
► On the 27th of every month i will review all articles and determine there quality and then see how many newspaper owner/editors have published and select 4 of them.
► These 4 selected newspapers will be placed in the poll i set up(see the previous article). This poll has 2 things to fill in:
_1) Your profile-link(poll will clarify what it is)
_2) 4 possible selections named as this: newspaper owners name followed by newspaper-link(so that you can take a look at the work of the nominee's).

I will retain the right to make the selections of the 4 nominee's for every edition. I will do my best to make the selection as fair as possible and from a neutral point of view(no pre-determinations of a candidate).

I hope this extra note answers some of your questions.

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(October 2013)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Dear world
Owner/editor: Kiyonori Dragnier
Most recent article: [HOPE] A strong CP for a strong eBelgium.

Just sharing his thoughts and ideas whith sometimes some articles about the political party he resides and sometimes leads.The answers to the questions provide a fairly good view of what this newspaper is all about.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I wanted to express my thoughts. I was very shy and barely able to discuss with people when I started eRepublik. I had fun with Yannis about finding a name to my newspaper on a gDoc page and getting encouragements from MaryamQ, it helped me a lot in making the newspaper.

The name "Dear world" correspond to the fact I want to express my thoughts and feelings to the eWorld in a form of a letter.


Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: Everyone thinks differently and we all have our own belief. I'm pretty sure it's possible to learn from everything, even something we don't agree with.

I always stay honest when I write an article, it's not about making a perfect article that will please everyone, it's about sharing a message with every readers.

My thoughts influence my articles a lot since I'm directly writting what I'm thinking.


Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I would like to continue what I started with this newspaper, I would like to publish more things outside of political articles.

I have a new project for my newspaper and I hope everyone will like it, expect the first article on this very soon.


Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: I want to thank every readers of my newspaper, I'm happy to see that there are people who like what I'm doing and It makes me wanting to work even harder on it.

I also want to thanks MaryamQ and Yannis who playing a big role in the creation of my newspaper.

If someone have any questions do not hesitate to ask me.

Newspaper of the Month(November 2013)

Post by tommot on 2013-11-02, 15:17

I rarely see more than 2 people from my friendlist share the link to the articles.
If they do share it then they are not using the friend-feed.

I don't really see how or what else i can do to get more attention to the voting.
-------------------------------------------------------------

Newspaper of the Month(November 2013)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/newspaper-of-the-month-november-2013--2349712/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,209, 04:35
* The Weekly Prophet - NLSP
*
Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(November 2013)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.


The newspaper is:

The Weekly Prophet
Owner/editor: NLSP
Most recent article: Snakes Used in eBe Military - Government Poisons eBelgian Food

The Weekly Prophet is a newspaper that very irregularly publish new articles. Most of them contain a lot of nonsense, but some of them are very informative or support the political views of its owner, NLSP.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: A long, long, long time ago (Day 1102) I created this newspaper and made the first article. I was fresh member of the active eBelgian community and received enough trust to be elected as congress member. I thought at that time, it would be useful as a congress member to communicate regularly with my voters.

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: It depends from who the comments are coming. There are certain people that attack everything I say or write, independently of the content. I don't let them influence me. If there are respectful comments with a legit concern, I look if I need to change something in the future. However, The Weekly Prophet is and stays The Weekly Prophet and the essence will not be changed.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: The Weekly Prophet has evolved a lot since it's creation. The main point is that I enjoy writing the articles and can express my thoughts in it. Therefore, there is a big chance that it will keep further evolving just like I as a player I'm evolving all the time. However, the beloved readers of The Weekly Prophet can definitely expect more articles in the future.

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: Read articles and inform yourself. Express your own opinion at all times and call upon unacceptable behavior like misleading information, half-truths, complete lies, fake articles and more. The Media-module is a place with a lot of fun and you should all enjoy it!
Oh and don't forget to read tommot's excellent articles!

If they do share it then they are not using the friend-feed.

I don't really see how or what else i can do to get more attention to the voting.
I think that while you do a very good initiative, not so many people care enough about it shout it aswell.
I admit, I like it and sometimes I do vote on it, but copy-pasting your shout is not something I do.

Newspaper of the Month(December 2013)

Newspaper of the Month(December 2013)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/newspaper-of-the-month-december-2013--2359518/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,237, 12:43
* The Golden Miner - JdlF
*
Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(December 2013)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

The Golden Miner
Owner/editor: JdlF
Most recent article: eUK has been robbed!

The tittle of this newspaper already reveals part of the purpose of this newspaper. It covers a lot of financial matters. And several articles expressing his personal views. Also a good part are the political articles(elections, debates, gov, party).


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: Well at first I was told by some newspapers were useless to reach important functions and so on. Guess what? It's kind of true. I became minister of finance without spending the few golds for a newspaper. But really, even if I'm not writing that much, having a newspaper is great as it allows you to promote your ideas and so on. Therefore as I've always been interested in few areas which were not covered, I just started mine.

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: Well in fact it affects me quite a lot. Like last month where nearly all my articles were freely criticized by my best enemy o/. It's not always good you know. You take times putting your ideas in place. And those are your ideas, it's something very subjective right? Even when it comes to numbers, the way you interpret those numbers and so is a personal way. So well. It doesn't change things a lot but yes I got really tired.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I have no plans. At first I created it just to write some articles I had in mind and I just keep following. It is not a newspaper like tommot's or tony clifford's. It is a personal one... I just write whatever I want. So most of the time it's regarding gold / training / gouvernment / fun.

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: How am I here? Razz

I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Beavers first
Owner/editor: Beaverss Tribute to Raskol
Most recent article: [Beavering News] "since I upgraded my weapons factory to Q7"... wait... WHAT??

This newspaper has no specific focus, it goes from his beaver cult to political debates and presentations and from military newsflashes up to international affairs and many other diverse topics. I leave it to Beaver himself for a few words:
Thanks tommot for this honour and thanks to all the human & beaver beings who voted for me and gave me the chance to win the most prestigious contest in eBelgium ! As your probably know, my newspaper has no specific goals. Or, should I say, no human specific goal. I let my human part being ruled by the higher spirit of ancestral ruling beavers. So, I’m only the way whereby they pass their spirit around human beings. You should pray the beaver if you want to know their intention.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I started this newspaper to try this aspect of the game and I liked it so it’s now one of my favourite part of the game with… oh… wait… It’s probably one of the reason I’m still on this game. No, more seriously, all the newcomers should create their own newspaper. It’s a good way to start meeting the other human & beaver beings of eBelgium. If someone want to create a newspaper of eBelgium, I’m ready to pay the 2 gold necessary to launch it ! DO IT !

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: Nobody never criticized my articles, because they’re awesome, as I am. However, if it should happen, I've no issue with constructive critics… but please respect the human behind the screen as you would respect people and beavers in face-to-face interactions.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I've a permanent contact with the Beaver spirits. For now, they seem to be in two click-mode. We will see what happen next. I don’t know if they've plans (evil or funny ones) for now…

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: Beavers first ! JOIN THE BEAVER CULT !

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(March 2014)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Captain logbook
Owner/editor: Jeiry
Most recent article: Story of a lost battle !

It is best to look at his answers in the interview. When you read it, you will understand.
NOTE:I want it to be clear to everyone, this is not a joke. He really got the most votes... he won!(concerning April fool's day)


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I thought many times about creating my own Newspaper. But until recently I've been smart enough not to do it. It costs way too much : 2 golds. I had other priorities, such as upgrading my weapons to Q7. When my other objectives have been achieved, I was more likely to spend that huge amount of 2 golds in creating a Newspaper.

But... But still... Something else was restraining me to do it : a deep and calm force telling me "Do not create a Newspaper". Because once you’ve created one, you have to know what to write inside it, and that’s the main problem. There starts the troubles. So I've always been strong enough to succeed in hearing that little voice I was talking about.

Then, one day, I confess that I did not listen to my little voice. I don't know why. My hands started to create a Newspaper. My brain knew it wasn't a good idea, but I could not stop the frenzyness (?) of my hands.

If I thought a minute about it, I would have stopped the process. But that day wasn't a day like the others. That day, I probably would have been able to kiss thousands of girls’ armpits, to jump from the Eiffel Tower's first step (or maybe second) and lick hundreds of horses' necks. It was a special day. Anyway... I... I... Look, it starts again : a blue baby floating in the air. Hello Blue Baby !

Anyway, I don't know why I started, really, I don’t know. But I shouldn't have.


Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: Actually, I didn't have any negative comment in my article.

But I don't think I would personally feel bad about negative comments. Matter of perspective.
But, depending on the nature of "negative comments" and the people's personality, I understand that some people might get hurt by those negative. So let me propose to everybody, from now, that when you have a really negative comment you want to post... You'll just post it in my Newspaper, replacing the target by "Jery". And everybody's gonna feel good.


Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: Well, actually, as I have won this award with the only article that I wrote in my e-life, I'll stop writing to keep the best rate possible in e-belgian History. 100% of my articles won the Award. Unbeatable.

Yes, that's it. I stop writing.


Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: That question is like... Sometimes... You know... You're at the phone with a good friend, nothing else to say, but you know that a few seconds after having hanged up, you'll remember an important stuff that you forgot to tell him.

So... I'm pretty sure I've got many things to say, last words, advices, or such... But I know I'll think about them right after my interview will be posted. Nothing I can do to avoid it.

It sucks but hey, that's life.

And let me just say "Thanks" to all the crazies that voted for me ! I don’t know who you are but I love you.
And thanks to those that voted for others as well. And also to those that didn’t vote, but it starts being quite a big crowd.

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(June 2014)


Yes the tittle says it...

Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

FreedomPress
Owner/editor: Kanselier
Most recent article: Media MogulProject2014

I have a hard time giving it a good and fair description, so i will ask you to read the answer of the first question. He says it better then i can.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: Well freedompress started as an initiative to give more eBelgian media cover (the more the better right). I took a look at the eInternational media and probably because off the playerbase the most media aint writting in english while i am sure that there's a huge market for it in game.
Reason why i started whit my +/- weekly report called "country investigation" which has the goal to bring an eNation more familiar in eBelgiam and vice versa.
Also as i newly elected congressmember i plan on putting regular articles out here in the game which i am gonne call "congressalert" not everyone reads the forum, and i believe that constantly notifying people off whats going on out there will hopefully convince a few people to take a stepp towards the forum.


Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: To be short it doesnt, i've also read reactions off people telling me a good journalist shouldn't state his opinion. But i don't believe that, i am free to wright what i want and people may like it or not just like i can like or dislike an article/opinion. But that's no reason to start a flame war and people who try to start that really don't bother me. I just keep working on my projects in the hope to give more eInformation towards the citizens, if there's a blunt opinion between the articles then people are free to comment what they want, i am always open for debat.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: At the moment there are no plans to chance something to the newspaper, both the "congressalert" and the "country investigation" section will be the key off future articles.
Later on i plan on adding more things, but i am looking for an original theme, something that hasn't been done yet. Which is a lot harder that it sounds.


Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: Well thank you for the people who voted for me, and thank you for reading, voting, subbing my articles. I will continue my best to write more articles and keep people informed. Thank you also to the ministery off eEducation for supporting new newspapers which i find a very nice iniative which stimulates new players writing articles.
To new players who our doubting to create a newspaper don't be scared to give an opinion or write an article, investigation, intervieuws, fun articles, there are always ways to coop whit that statuere.
And lastly thank you tommot for organising this competion which i find a very inspiring and honarable idea.

Long live eBelgium! o7

Newspaper of the Month(July 2014) + info article

Post by tommot on 2014-11-08, 16:45

info for Newspaper of the Month series(revision1)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/info-for-newspaper-of-the-month-series-revision1--2419443/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,442, 03:27
* Not Applicable
*
Article's published content:

I once made an article with informaton on the selection-process for the Newspaper of the Month series. this one
This is now a revised publication which has more details and some info on the rules i put on this.
Notes and rules(guidelines).
I will explain in some way how the selections are made and how voting will proceed. I also add some rules on how the series work.

Notes:
► From the 27th of every month until the next 27th of every month i will keep track of all articles published in eBelgium. I will have a text-document with all the url's/links to this months articles(with the exception of government newspapers). i call that document the review-list.

► Any newspaper owner/editor who has made publications(articles) between 27th and 29th of every month but did not make any other articles that month will be added to the next month review-list.

► On the 27th of every month i will review all articles and determine there quality and then see how many newspaper owner/editors have published and select 8 of them(the candidates) and at last on the 28th the selection will be reduced to 4(the nominees).

► These 4 selected newspapers will be placed in the poll i set up(see the previous article). This poll has 2 things to fill in:
_1) Your profile-link(poll will clarify what it is)
_2) 4 possible selections named as this: newspaper owners name followed by newspaper-link(so that you can take a look at the work of the nominee's).

► The voting article will be published on the 29th of every month(28th in February) and this poll will last until it is no longer visible in the Top News feed on the main page(19.30 CET officially closed). The publication of the winner will be made at most 2 days after the voting ends or the next following weekend.

Rules(guidelines):
Read/remember these lines to avoid disqualification.
► The article review-list can be available to you personally and on request only(use in-game pm).
► Newspapers that where selected as nominee can not be re-selected as a nominee for the next month. These newspapers will have to wait for a new chance in the month after that one. To put it short: you can only be a nominee every 2 months.
► If a nominee removes his last publication before the end of the voting-process, he/she will loose their status as nominee(this also applies to candidates).
► If a publication made within that month is in violation with eRepublik law, the newspaper will be disqualified for that month.
► A permanent ban in-game will also disqualify a newspaper. Temporary bans are not a reason to disqualification unless the ban is related to the newspaper itself.
► Anyone can vote!!! It does not matter what your nationality nor affiliation might be. Anyone is allowed to vote!!!

I will retain the right to make the selections of the 4 nominee's for every edition. I will do my best to make the selection as fair as possible and from a neutral point of view(no pre-determinations of a candidate).
I hope this extra note answers some of your questions.

Newspaper of the Month(July 2014)

* The teddybeer - Teddy beer eBe

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(July 2014)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

The teddybeer
Owner/editor: Teddy beer eBe
Most recent article: [eBe - ATO] Congress election ( July-August)

How he describes his newspaper: It's about... things... stuff. - He makes stuff like MU news and part presentations and promotion to plain simple fun.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: My commander, who was a foreigner, requested a volunteer to publish an article about "The eBelgian winners of the National Shield Tournament"
This way the article was published in the right country.

2 Golds and the Teddybeer was born.
Some thought it was a typo but when you see the logo, you understand it's done on purpose.
I call him the IdontCare bear. The world can collapse, as long he has his beer, he is happy.


Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: I have not so much articles, so i have not a lot of negative commentaries.
(Ask me again when will have 100 articles.)

If commentaries are constructive, i will probably pay attention.
If they are just trolling or have the purpose to make me angry, obviously no.


Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: There was no real plan.
I use it mostly to communicate about my party but i can publish about other stuff.
Like my article about our Belgian national day


Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: Despite what some say, the Belgian forum can be a nice place.
Specially when you are not acting like a duck.
...
Oh Yeh: ATO rules!

Newspaper of the Month(September 2014)

Post by tommot on 2014-11-08, 16:46

Newspaper of the Month(September 2014)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/newspaper-of-the-month-september-2014--2453045/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,509, 05:22
* Altius, Citius, Fortius - Lioncoeur

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(September 2014)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Altius, Citius, Fortius
Owner/editor: Lioncoeur
Most recent article: Marin Cilic wins the US Open 2014

This newspaper is generally meant to be a sort of sports magazine of eRepublik.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I have started my newspaper because it was expected from me to make a sort of presentation of myself when I was participating in the Congress elections for the first time. I was planning to make a newspaper with the reviews of some international sport events and exceptional sport achievements. As I myself am big sport fan and the follower of all kind of sports. I didn't fulfil my primary idea completely yet.

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: I don’t recall I've received any negative comments or reactions so far. Nobody doesn't like to be criticized, but if it’s done in a positive and constructive way, then why not. ”What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger” is my life slogan.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I am planning to write some articles in the future surely, but for the moment I am missing a bit my inspiration to write anything. Maybe in a few days I’ll come with some idea and put it down the paper and publish it.

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: I’ll hope more people in eBelgium will write and publish their articles, even if they are not thematically related to the eRepublik and the game itself. It’s kind of sad to see some days there are no new articles coming out.

Newspaper of the Month(October 2014)

And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

eRep Statistics
Owner/editor: Franckie18
Most recent article: A new military unit is emerging ... Olympus Belgicae Academy !

This newspaper has a wide range of subjects from plain fun and trolling up to educational and statistics. It has also some political and military articles on occasion. And of-course we can not forget the Beaver cult. Smile


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I started my newspaper because it's a funny part of the game. My first article was about translations. I found that the actually articles that are just in English make from this game a game just for English speaking players. Today also I think that we need more translations, but I don't do it because it doesn't help if I'm the only who do it.

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: I don't have a lot of negative comments, but I love troll the guys who write it whit some humor.

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I will continue the every month statistics, because I find it important to show some "not visible" parts of the game. I will also write a lot of educational articles (which can be statistics also) for a future project.

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: Be prepared for anything new in eBelgium, and I will be the first to publish it
Wink
And last but not least -> JOIN THE BEAVER CULT !

Newspaper of the Month(November 2014)


Yes the tittle says it...


Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.



The newspaper is:

Donkey heart, Monkey mind
Owner/editor: boer jan
Most recent article: We are doomed

His newspaper used to range from political opinions and arty/election campaigning to sharing his opinion on events of the moment. These days he provides a newsletter with various topics mostly with notable events of the moment.


Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
Answer: I wanted to change my usual way of publishing, not that I wrote a lot yet, but wanted to write something about what happens in eBe from a funny and neutral side

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
Answer: even negative comments, if it is not trolling, can be a good comment, this way I can adapt, so that almost everybody likes what I write

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
Answer: I will try to continue hopefully without hurting feelings, it is just meant to see the situations from a more objective side so that players who did not care start to look further

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
Answer: I have the feeling that the game is loosing power, the social aspect of it also, we must regain that last if we want that eBe stays a strong community, do not forget that even if players have opposite meanings they still can be friends only this way our little country can stay attractive for new players

Article's published content:
Newspaper of the Month(December 2014)


Yes the tittle says it... The last one of this year.

Here i will highlight one of the newspapers that are to be commended for there work or at least for the effort they try to do.
I will give a short summary describing that paper and why this one was chosen.
And if possible(if the newspaper-owner agrees to it) i'll give a very...very short interview with its creator.


The newspaper is:

Fresh Opinions
Owner/editor: Nanoyo
Most recent article: Official Media list (update 31/12)

This newspaper is an expression of the passion for journalisme that its owner has for this field which he still describes far better in this article than this summary can. But to give you an idea, his publications range from arts and culture to international news updates.There are also a few political opinions shared, yet it is not the main focus of this newspaper(i think).

Interview with newspaper owner/editor:

Question: Could you tell me why you started this newspaper?
[indent]Answer: I have a RL journalism experience and this is somehow a passion. Plus, i love writing (seven novels written in a little more than two years). So, it was obvious i had to make my own newspaper on eRep. This is the part where i'll find an infinite pleasure. I can get pissed by politics / economics / wars, but not by writing.[/indent]

Question: How do you feel about the negative comments on your articles? Does it effect your articles you write after that?
[indent]Answer: I had some negative and troll comment, not constructive negative comments yet. The only comments that affects my writing are the constructive one. So when i see the same peeps telling "how noob" i am, and having the same "fanboys" upvoting them. It makes me feel way "smarter" than them. I don't need fanboy to approve my arguments, i have readers from everywhere who give a really high approval score.[/indent]

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
[indent]Answer: My plans have always been to become a worldwide newspaper. It's really huge, so i begin with "Europeans" view, my "Europeans wars" are part of this. I already contacted MoFA of european countries and will put them in my future article to give a new imput in my newspapers's aim.[/indent]

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
[indent]Answer: I passed the first 100 subscriber yesterday, 10 days after my first article. I just want to remind you that everyone can participate as an actor(journalist) of "Fresh Opinions". We give the possibility to anonym external articles, reviewing them to keep them as anonym.[/indent]

Here is you well earned badge:

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
[indent]Answer: I would like to make surprises : sometimes more fun, sometimes informative and about the nature. I haven't really any objective. I see a picture, i love it. Boum i see one article, sometimes it's a video or a music.[/indent]

info for Newspaper of the Month series(revision2)
* http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/info-for-newspaper-of-the-month-series-revision2--2491746/1/20
* Published on: Day 2,625, 10:26
* Not Applicable

Article's published content:

I once made a revision article with information on the selection-process for the Newspaper of the Month series. this oneThis is a new revised publication which has more details and some info on the rules i put on this. To be more specific, this new version is more in line with the latest changes to the newspapers options.
-----
Notes and rules(guidelines).
I will explain in some way how the selections are made and how voting will proceed. I also add some rules on how the series work.

Notes:
► From the 27th of every month until the next 27th of every month i will keep track of all articles published in eBelgium. I will have a text-document with all the url's/links to this months articles(with the exception of government newspapers). i call that document the review-list.

► Any newspaper owner/editor who has made publications(articles) between 27th and 29th of every month but did not make any other articles that month will be added to the next month review-list.

► On the 27th of every month i will review all articles and determine there quality and then see how many newspaper owner/editors have published and select 8 of them(the candidates) and at last on the 28th the selection will be reduced to 4(the nominees).

► These 4 selected newspapers will be placed in the poll i set up(see the previous article). This poll has 2 things to fill in:
_1) Your profile-link(poll will clarify what it is)
_2) 4 possible selections named as this: newspaper owners name followed by newspaper-link(so that you can take a look at the work of the nominee's).

► The voting article will be published on the 29th of every month(28th in February) and this poll will last until it is no longer visible in the Top News feed on the main page(19.30 CET officially closed). The publication of the winner will be made at most 2 days after the voting ends or the next following weekend.
-----
Rules(guidelines):
Read/remember these lines to avoid disqualification.
► Foreign newspapers that publishes an article in the Belgian news-feed will not qualify for this series. The idea is to promote and stimulate Belgian Media.

► The article review-list can be available to you personally and on request only(use in-game pm).

► Newspapers that where selected as nominee can not be re-selected as a nominee for the next month. These newspapers will have to wait for a new chance in the month after that one. To put it short: you can only be a nominee every 2 months.

► If a nominee removes his last publication before the end of the voting-process, he/she will loose their status as nominee(this also applies to candidates).

► If a publication made within that month is in violation with eRepublik law, the newspaper will be disqualified for that month.

► A permanent ban in-game will also disqualify a newspaper. Temporary bans are not a reason to disqualification unless the ban is related to the newspaper itself.

► Anyone can vote!!! It does not matter what your nationality nor affiliation might be. Anyone is allowed to vote!!!

► Belgian publications made by foreign newspapers in the belgian news-feed will be added to a separate document. This separate list will be used for the NotY awards of 2015 and the following years after that.

► This new revised guidelines/rules will be valid starting from 27th January 2015 until a new revision has been drafted.
-----
I will retain the right to make the selections of the 4 nominee's for every edition. I will do my best to make the selection as fair as possible and from a neutral point of view(no pre-determinations of a candidate).
I hope this extra note answers some of your questions.
Any further questions can be asked in the comment section.
* From now on this will replace the previous editions of the rules and guidelines

Newspaper of the Year 2014 - 1° round!


Yes it is...
In this first part of a full year of media activity highlighted. Lets see what newspapers and their writers have created this past year.
Obviously we can not show you every single article they created, but we will show their, in my opinion, 4 most notable articles they published in the eBelgian Media this year.

Yes in this article i will show you the first 6 candidates, first the newspaper logo(the logo that they used at the time they won that month) then the newspaper name(linked) followed by the newspaper owner/editor and then the Month in which they won the "Newspaper of the Month" and finally their top 4 articles.

After that you will see a linked banner/image telling you to click it. This will bring you to the voting form where you can choose your first 2 nominees for the finals.

The Newspaper of the Year is...

- La_Flute_Enchantee
Owner/editor: Elynea
Most recent article: Et demain on fait quoi ?

The content of this newspaper articles has not changed much. It still talks about the feel and thought of military political fun and poetry all dressed in the personal and kind touch of Elynea. These links will take you to here previous achievements in these series of media highlights: [SoMF]Newspaper of the Week(1° week), Newspaper of the Month(April 2014), Newspaper of the Month(January 2015)

Interview with the winner:

Question: Has your newspaper changed a lot since you where the winner of the Newspaper of the Month(April 2014)?
[indent]Answer: Nothing changed, i have one idea, i make one article. If i saw one injustice, or bad rule from admins, i take the occasion. If i see the country in troubles, i try to make one article about the unity. It depends. Sometimes i want to smile, it's more fun, sometimes when i need medidation i write poetry in french.[/indent]

Question: Do you feel you get more international coverage on your articles and how does it affect your work?
[indent]Answer: I have a lot of friends in the eworld, i have sometimes answers from them. Sure i have more readers in ebelgium and efrance (my usual language). I don't make my articles to be an international reporter. I see a lot of international article who is voted a lot are about troll (fun article about one alliance) or very good analysis about alliances. I'm not in this category.[/indent]

Question: What are your future plans for your newspaper?
[indent]Answer: I continue to write when i want. If you want make one article each week but no idea, no imagination this day, you must forget and wait.I don't like the new mission about 25 comments, that push anyone to make : "hello, please comment". Thanks, have a good day. You write for a goal. No interest to read this kind of articles.[/indent]

Question: If you had to start your newspaper from the beginning again, would you do the same as you have been doing now... or would you do it differently(and how)?
[indent]Answer: At the begining i had no problem to write (except my bad english, i'm better no? :p) Now it's cool, we can add music, we can make a good form to one article.
At the begining, you needed to use pictures (pixels limited). I try to respect the reader. One article clear not so long, and pictures.
[/indent]

Question: Anything else you wish to share here? Last words, advice or promoting something...
[indent]Answer: I don't know for others, but a newspaper says a lot about you, your personality.
What you write is what you are. The press is important in eRepublik, to help citizens, to make fun, to share a story. My newspaper is my memory.
The show must go on ! To write is like to make music. You have one instrument (the imagination), you have the ink (computer) after with your ideas (the music in your head) you create the end the song (the story).
[/indent]

Here is you well earned badge:
And this is your price: 10 gold + 1000 BEF + 4000 Q3 food
