A: In this thread! If you are accepted, you will receive a PM.

Q: Is there a time limit for this?
A: There is no time limit for this currently - but there is also no need to rush; you all have plenty of time, and we will start picking the Helpers when we think the time is right. (Mostly judging on how many submissions we get)

Oh wow! This is quite the amazing opportunity at hand!
I would really like to take a shot at this, in all honesty.
I have one question though, how would these articles need to be set out/saved? Will they just be sent in PM with just the information for the article or is there more to it?
Posted: Mon, 27/11/2017 17:27 (5 Months ago)
Not entirely sure if I’m understanding your question or not, so feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

You just have to make the article(s) as presentable as possible, including BBCode and Screenshots/Images to guide the reader. It should be as informative and detailed as possible too! :]

Ah I think I get it now, so just send the entire layout with screenshots, and all BBCode shown. I think I can try that.
This is the first time I'm doing anything like this.

May I just ask, why does one of the requirements have to be trainer level 30+? It just seems weird, since the one after says you have to be active. My guess is because all features should be open by level 30+? Though the only feature from level 30 is missingno. I'll see If I can reach level 30 before it closes though, (the only time that you hope that people don't participate XD)

@Mrinja, because that pretty much shows that you're experienced/active--


heck I'll be applying :0 I've written stuff like this before so I can't wait !!

Is English supposed to be US or UK ?
And do we need to have information about any other codes (e.g. HTML) along with BB codes ?
Posted: Tue, 28/11/2017 04:07 (5 Months ago)
@toma, not really. I mean kinda. But nugget users could just keep hatching event pokemon. It doesn't mean they're more active than regular users.
