Wanted: Magazine Editors!
Greetings, fellow FTRPers! The Magazine Team is currently looking for more members that might be interested in helping out with this fun little project. As most of you are aware, a small team of site members works hard to put out a new edition the magazine every couple months that is filled with fun information about the site, from in-character interviews and information to out of character notifications and updates. Overall, it's just something lighthearted used to highlight portions of the site and bring the community together in a small way. If you enjoy working with GFX and being artistic, you might enjoy helping us out!
FAQs and Requirements
What does a member of the Magazine Team do?
With each edition of the magazine, each member of the team is assigned one or more pages to design based on the segment. Examples are things like Featured Mage, Featured Guild, Modeling, etc. Many segments follow similar formats from edition to edition, but generally each member has full creative freedom with page design.
How often is the magazine published?
Historically, the magazine has put out a new edition every other month over the last couple years (with a few exceptions when a short hiatus or extension became necessary.) Since many members on the site are currently experiencing low activity due to real-life demands, we have decided to change the publication schedule to be quarterly (every 3 months) for the foreseeable future.
Do I need to have experience making GFX?
Not at all! While experience making graphics is certainly useful, anyone who has an interest in being a part of the team is welcome to apply, no matter their level of experience.
What is required to be a part of the team?
You will need access to some kind of photo editing program. If you don't own a licensed copy of any kind of software, such as Photoshop, there are a couple free programs that are pretty easy to learn and will give you all the tools you need. It is also required that you join the discord server for the magazine, as that is where all organizing and communication is done between team members and leaders.
Can I suggest ideas for new segments?
You are actively encouraged to do so! Whether it's a recurring or one time segment, magazine members are free to pitch new ideas to the team leaders.
How long do I need to have been a member of FTRP to apply?
There is no minimum requirement for being a member of the site in order to apply to become part of the magazine team. All applicants are welcome!
Is being a member of the magazine team considered being a member of staff?
While members of staff can also be a part of the magazine team, being a member of the magazine team does not make you a member of staff. The magazine is considered a non-essential feature of the site, done only for fun, and the members of the magazine team have no input or control over site events, mechanics, etc.
