Looking for a few Good Guru Volunteers

It's that time, folks!  Now that our Guru sites are off and rolling, we're on the sharp lookout for the able and willing gamers out there who might want to help out.  Currently, we don't have anything open for paid positions, but we are looking for a few folks to help out with the news on each site.  And while we realize cold hard cash is always a plus, we can at least offer you cool swag and game copies as we get them.

The gist of what we're looking for is pretty basic:

  • Someone who's a self-starter and will look for news each day during the M-F schedule
  • Someone who has a wide range of knowledge in gaming, but especially RTS and FPS titles.
  • Someone who has a little experience with HTML
  • Someone with the free time to scour the web for news
  • Someone who loves gaming in general, and wants to be a part of these sites
Basically, this is a foot in the door sort of position.  As both Gurus grow, we'll need more help and if you're already on board with a volunteer position, your chances are better than most assuredly.  If you have the kind of "stuff" we're looking for and are interested in helping out please don't hesitate to e-mail myself (billmurphy at MMORPG dot com) or Richard Cox (Richard at FPSguru dot com), or even just post right here and we'll contact you. 
 
Thanks for your time, now get back to gaming!

I'll throw my hat in the ring and would like to help out. I'm on the web pretty much everyday and all i look at are game news. Gamasutra, Massively, Big-downloads (Before they closed), mmorpg, Rock, Paper & Shotgun, Ign, Gamespot, Gametrailers, GiantBomb are pretty much on my list of websites to visit everyday. If the position is still open send me a message.

I'll help out I took some HTML in High School so I know the basics. Also I am a big fan of RTS and FPS. I unfortunately never was very good at FPS but i do love the story lines and was decent at playing Unreal back when it was big. If ya like shoot me an email here or at phoenixstrife333@gmail.com.

I'm interested in RTS Guru as I have played many and still go back to play one often. My HTML, substandard, but I could always just get a book and crash-course myself into it. It would also do well for my resume. Please let me know.

I would also like to throw my hat in the ring for a volunteer position. I have been playing MMO's for several years now and RTS for almost as long. I am free to scour the web for news and will even attempt to write some articles for your site.
