    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.

    actually,looks like amusing. i fully support this idea
    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?

    Nevermind, my writing skills aren't as colorful as they used to be.

    They can only be based on opinions

    reviews are opinion. But they also must not be one sided. They have to weigh the good and the bad together. You just can't downgrade a game totally just because you hate the game in general.

    Pretty sure the staffers will have the right to say no to a completely biased review. They have been doing this for a while

    Ta-dah! You've discovered the definition of a REVIEW! Level up twice!

    I so wish I could get in on this, I think my writing could stand up to it. But lately, all but the most awesome MMO's have been boring me out of my mind. I don't think I could give a fair and impartial review for the MMO community. Maybe I can review the weird ones... but that might be unfair.
