Two topics! News writer / emailing the RPS fortress
Are there any updates on the search for a new news writer? I ask mostly because of (potential, maybe) issues I've had with emailing the various RPS addresses before. I've sent in a few feedback emails / compo entries / an application to the news writer gig, but I've never received a response -- negative nor positive nor acknowledgement of receipt -- to any email I've sent. I do receive newsy site update stuff, like when the forum has hackified, so maybe there's an issue on my end. Are my messages being filtered as spam? I'm not a bot, I promise. I think.

I used to hear back from RPS somtimes after mailing, but not for a long time now. Is it because they are busy, or is it because things aren't arriving? Who can tell?

I'm currently assuming that Craig Pearson is the new news writer. When they announced hiring a replacement for Quinns Adam started writing stuff pretty soon after that but it wasn't officially announced for a while. I think that's what has happened in this case, Craig's been doing a tonne of news in the last little while so I think they'll announce him coming on board soon.
I don't know anything about emailing sorry.

Much as he's been doing a stand-up job, Craig is only temporary cover until we've decided on the news person, I can assure you. He has his own grand plans.
Sorry we're taking a while to sort out the news writer post - hundreds of applications again, which is not an easy thing for the three editors to sort out on top of running the site on a daily basis.
As for replying to emails - yeah, we get so damn many these days, both because the site's more popular and because of the explosion in indie games. It's one of the things that having a dedicated newsbod can hopefully help with, in fact.Peace through tyranny

There's enough news in the world today. First things first. Have you tried finding the gaming equivalent of Sergio Aragones to doodle in the margins?

Asking a stupid question: is the application window still open, or is it one of those "contact us any time and we'll put you on the list" kind of things? I imagine if you've already got hundreds you don't want more, but then again what's one more on top of hundreds?
