    Default Now paying for your previews and reviews!

    We are still looking to expand our staff of writers here at Onrpg, and we have decided to start rewarding those who write for us with cold, hard cash. That's right, if you follow the application process and join the staff of Onrpg's writers each preview or review you write will net you $10!

    Only those who are on the staff of Onrpg will qualify for this, so if you want to start earning some cash for playing MMOs, follow the instructions in this thread and apply today!

    (Payments will be done through Paypal. If you do not have Paypal and cannot get an account we will discuss that privately.)

    I'd love to earn some extra cash, but I do have a question.

    Is there going to be a minimum amount of reviews per week? Like, will you be paying each month of will payments come after each review?

    I'll be looking forward to reviewing some games.

    Aha. Knew this would spark applications =]]. Yay for new writers!

    Oh and Piggy bank, it's usually 1 to 2 (2 being preferred) reviews per month. You need to get immersed in the game you're reviewing in order to give it an honest review .

    Atiari, I have reviewed games on this site in the past. May I dig them up, and send them to you?

    - Standard rate: $10 per review.
    - Custom rate: $5 automatically but more depending upon the amount of hits.


    Can't decide which is a better deal for me.

    ;/? I dun get it, how? I would do this but, even if the content of my reviews stood out, $20.00 a month doesn't seem like such an interesting prospect to me.

    They should lose money if they write a bad review.

    Well with that point of view anything could spark trolling, arc. :P Anyway, surely you could write reviews and ask for no payment . You don't have to think of it as some full time job. It's just something fun to do in your spare time. I joined when there was no pay because I wanted writing experience and a good reference. Atiari wants more writers and this is basically the only way more people will join D:.

    People are greedy you know D:! I agree though, I so want to look cool on the forums :P.

    I'm sure either way would attract more people. Honestly though, if you love to write, one can profit so much from this experience. I've learned a LOT of helpfull tips and its really improving my writing skill.

    Reviews should NOT be biased. They may have a side of where you may not like the game or like the game, but NEVER biased. That's the first thing a review should NOT be.

    edit: ever heard of the journalist perspective?
