Don't have the money for a upgrade or just don't want to spend money on upgrading your account? This is the perfect opportunity for you! Jade has given me permission to do a newspaper a game and the prize will be a free upgrade to your account. This might be your only chance to get a free upgrade. It's not gonna be easy though. Trust me the upgrade is worth all the trouble. All you have to do is get creative! Write a story, draw a picture, make a layout, do something with photoshop, etc. Just make sure it is creative. Be sure to follow of the rules. Give credit if you decide to use photoshop and you use someone else's pics. It can say anything as long as it follows the rules. The contest ends August 15th. This should be plenty of time. You can only have one entry. If you send in more entries you are disqualified. It is unfair to the other players who will be following the rules. Make sure you subject the email 'SD Get Creative'. Send all entries to email@example.com. All you have to include is your user ID and your entry. The winner will receive a free account upgrade and their entry will be posted in a SimDog news article. Moderator applications will be up soon. Anyone who is a moderator now doesn't have to reapply. You will be able to keep your mod position. Well have fun and get creative! The winner will be announce late August 15th. The winner should receive their upgrade within 24 hours of being chosen.

I do apologize for not being as active. I have a lot of things going on at the moment and I'd love to be more active so I will definitely work on that. Here are applications for newspaper staff. I will announce who the new staff members are August 3rd. I plan on only hiring two or three. If we have more then three players that I think are qualified I will hire more. So here is the application. Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is my email just for the game. It must have the subject of 'Sim Dog Application'. You may abbreviate application if you would like. You may also send it to my game account which is 'Yellow Duck'.
Username & User ID:
How long have you been on SimDog?:
How often would you be able to post on the Game News?:
How do you think we could improve the Game News?:

Sample of your writing skills(this is not required but would be preferred):
Each member will be put on a posting schedule so that we don't have too many post posted each day. I will work with everyone to make sure their posting schedule suites anything they may have going on in their real life.

It has been a while since I've posted a news article and I do apologize. I took a break from sim dog and pretty much every other sit I play. I will be looking for newspaper staff soon so please let me know who all is still active by commenting below. The newspaper staff app. will be up Saturday morning.

As some of you may know, I, as well as Infinity and Yellow Duck, am part of the newspaper staff. Sadly however, I am not as active as I used to be and do not foresee having much time to write articles. So, if anyone has an article they have written or even a piece they would like to share (Maybe an original short story or poem, maybe even a comic strip) feel free to send it to me on Baytown (#25894)! If I think it's well written and a good topic I will post it here in the news feed! Just be sure the content is appropriate for all ages we may find here on SDN, keep the language clean, and try to make sure it is easy to read and mostly gramatically correct at least. If I see "u" instead of "you" I will very likely not post it as well. I will also credit you all of course for every submission you contribute.
Also, I'd like it to be known that there may be a chance I may upgrade one member's account as a holiday gift for a loyal active member! I'll update on this at a later date, right now though I need to know if anyone is active and has been. I'm sure very few people check the forums anymore, but I do know there are still members out there! So let me know if you are here! Just reply here, and feel free to introduce yourself if you are not an active forum goer!
