The Icon Bar needs YOU

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 21:40, 24/4/2014 | ,
 
  • Are you tired of looking at the front page and seeing those same old articles from over a year ago?
  • Have you noticed we haven't done anything new for April Fools day for several years?
  • Have you noticed how most of our show announcements are dangerously close to being made too late?
  • Do you have a keen interest in RISC OS?
  • Are you capable of forming basic sentences?
  • Do you enjoy working long hours for no pay and little reward?
If you answered YES to all of the above, then good news! We're looking for new writing staff to supplement the current lot, most of whom left the RISC OS scene behind a long time ago, or are far too busy with other things to update the site on a regular schedule.
 
At The Icon Bar we're primarily interested in delivering original content in the form of news, articles and reviews, rather than just regurgitating press releases all the time. So if that fits your bill then feel free to get in touch, either via the contact form or by posting in the thread below. And if you're lucky, we'll get back to you before you die of old age!

* Can you put up with yet more antic ramblings from one who is fast losing touch with the modern world?
* Can you still stomach coding sermons about programming languages nobody uses?
* Are you up for fatuous impractical suggestions, laced with goose-chases of dubious relevance and scholarship?

If so, you know how to reach me.
By the way, why no links to explain just what you mean by bbcode? How does it do lists?

Guilty as charged - but not without reason. I did clear some of the backlog, but nowhere near all of it, which is why I'm still doing the above, to prevent backlog growth.

Are you tired of looking at the front page and seeing those same old articles from over a year ago?
Yes, when the site is working, that is.
Have you noticed we haven't done anything new for April Fools day for several years?
Yes.
Have you noticed how most of our show announcements are dangerously close to being made too late?
Yes But you are not alone.
Do you have a keen interest in RISC OS?
Yes, very much so.
Are you capable of forming basic sentences?
I do not always eschew sesquipedalian prose though.
Do you enjoy working long hours for no pay and little reward?
Strange though it may seem, I do, when it interests me.
