From the editor

By Ral315, 8 November, 2008

We're back today after a long break since the last issue. I've been dealing with some real-life issues that have taken up much of my time, and unfortunately, it seems, so have many of our other writers. So I'm issuing another call for writers, and perhaps this one is more important than ever.

At this point, it appears that we have writers for a few of the features that have been without writers, or that I've had to handle, over the last few weeks. However, we're still in need of a few writers, if possible, to cover the various stories that come up from week-to-week -- things like the upcoming ArbCom elections, the fundraiser, and other concerns. These types of stories have not been covered recently, and it's my hope that we can cover them next issue.

While I haven't been as active as I'd like to be recently, it's also unfeasible for me to be nearly the only regular writer here. I would go so far as to say that without more participation, the project will lapse into inactivity completely, and I certainly don't want that to happen.

If you're interested in contributing, please contact me on my talk page. Even if you can't write every week, maybe you'd like to write about a particular story one week -- if so, please sign up for it in the newsroom. I'd like to get back to a deadline of Monday at 17:00 UTC, and publish late-Monday night every week, if possible.

As always, thanks for reading the Signpost.
