Newspaper of the Month/Year archive. Newspa11
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...:

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):
That's it for now.

I must admit that I didn't see the article where you requested to vote for the best newspaper. Maybe this need more advertising?

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.

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.
