We finally decided it was time to have dedicated news editors on the forum. We are aware that some people are willing to write periodic news or just standalone articles more often than we actually post things on the front page. That's why we are now introducing the News editor group, which grants the ability to post news to the front page without going through a moderator.
The first member to be granted this privilege is @pimathbrainiac
with his monthly project recap. Thanks for writing these, pi.
Applications are more or less open, the only requirement is to prove that you can write quality articles that can be posted on the front page. If you already have 2-3 approved articles, you're pretty much eligible for the job. Of course we prefer quality over quantity so we don't want you to write 10 articles a day, more like 2-3 a week.
