The Comment Box staff has come up with several innovative and fresh ideas for articles to be in our next issue. However, we can't do it all on our own. We need the help of some of you out there. You involvement will be minimal, just maybe answering a few questions or telling us about how you feel about certain things. If you think you want to be part of the "Comment Box Survey Squad" then pipe up now!

I can't go into more specifics about things but once the next issue is released, you'll see what its all about.

So, what prerequisites should you have to apply? Well, firstly you should have a general knowledge of Suikoden. Maybe not all 6 games thus far, but a majority of them and a loose knowledge of the ones you have not played. I won't penalize you for not playing 1 or 2 of them. Also, it would be a good idea if you have been a member of Suikox for a month or more. That way if there's any Suikox based questions, you'll have some knowledge of who people are, whats going on in the Suikox War game and all that jazz.

If you are interested, you can post here or PM me, or both if you're really into helping out. Once approved you'll be added into the "Comment Box Survey Squad" and those authors who need a bit of extra help can contact you at any time with their needs. This is NOT a one time only help deal, this is a long term thing. We might not contact you every issue with a question or survey, depending if we get a lot of people. It is my hopes to get at least 15 or more people on the Squad so that we can have a lot of variety and opinions in the answers.

When we ask you questions, I ask that you please not blab the question or survey around spoiling the article for everyone. If I find that you are spoiling the fun, then you'll be dropped from the list. Not that I honestly think any of you would, its just a disclaimer. If you have any questions before signing up, by all means ask away. PM me or write it here for all to see. I'm cool with both.

-------------------

Also, on a different note. Are you tired of seeing international news? Do you want to know what is going on inside your own nation? Step up now and be a Local correspondant! The Comment Box is interested in Local news. This way, even if we miss a big story for your area, it can still be covered! Did you just win your nation's Beauty Pageant and you want your beautiful mug in the paper? Did that big dueling tournament finally end and you want to see the winner in the newspaper? Well, now's your chance to get your wish! The Comment Box is looking for 1 author per nation to occasionally submit a local article about whats going on inside your nation. Remember, this is for internal affairs only, not explorations or battles. So, if you want to make your nation look good by promoting your sub-forum's activities, now's your chance to get your names out there! PM me if you are interested. Leave the responses in this thread to the Survey Squad.

Thank you for your Cooperation,
Editor-In-Chief
Moon Knight

I'll help out if I'm needed. I have played all 6 Suikodens (although I have yet to finish Tactics) and have been a member of Suikox for more than a month, so I meet your requirements.

You sure you've been a member for more than a month? I don't recall there ever being a Duck in Highland...

Lame jokes aside, I sent you a PM about it already! I'm pretty sure I fit the profile needed.

I haven't played all 6 games (I'm missing the classics, 1 and 2) I do have a general working knowledge of the games and had my 2 year last week so I meet the general prerequisites. I'd be more than willing to help.

I would like to help out very much with the Newspaper, let me know how I can lend my services in any way.

I have played all six Suikoden games, and have finished all six. I have gotten all of the characters in the main title games, as well as all of them in Tactics. My knowledge of speculation, however, is limited.

hmm...well okay I'll volunteer to be on this survey squad...don't know how much help I'll be though.
I do own all 6 Suikoden games and have beaten 5 out of 6 of them at least once. (not to mention I have Card Stories too/beaten it several times *cough*)
And I believe I've been on suikox longer then a month
:? hrm...? where's my join date again...? [/sarcasm]

so I guess I have the bare minimum down =p

I wouldn't mind helping out. I've played and beaten all US-released games except Suikoden Tactics, which I've played spareingly. I should note that my knowledge of Suikoden IV and Tactics is sparse, but I know a lot about Suikoden in general as well as the rest of the games. I also have a pretty good working knowledge of many Suikoden communities over the years.

I'd like to put my name out for both the survey squad and the local news articles. I've wanted to be part of the newspaper for a while now but I didn't have an internet connection for over a month and a half and I just got it back a few weeks ago.

I'm available to help in any other way as well, whether that be as a fill-in for one of the staff members who is unable to write up an article for the next issue, or what have you! :mrgreen:

Oh, and btw, I've played all games except Suikoden IV and I've done a quite a lot of research on anything Suikoden-related.

I have a passing familiarity with the Suikoden series as I have all of the six games released in North America, though I have yet to finish Tactics and Suikoden V. (yeah, I take my time... and time for gaming has been fairly sparse these days) I've also been a member of Suikox for just a little over a month now, though I do have a tendency to get lost if I venture into the community forums. The only pre-requisite I have a problem with is:

whats going on in the Suikox War game


Words cannot describe how much I dislike the war game, so I am pretty much useless in that area. If you can look past this deficit, then I am open to helping out.

Lame Duck? Since when was Darkwing a Lame Duck? Where have I heard "Lame Duck" before, anyway?

Err would blindly running around in card stories due to knowing very little japanese be counted as playing through a game, since if so then i have played and finished I-V + tactics and card stories.

Cards are purdy. :P

A month..month...one...seven.. are we talking standard month or minimum basis? :P

What if there are those of us who just want to be wiseasses and say perhaps message you everywhere they know you from, would that provide extra brownie points for persistence or negative brownie points for annoyances? It's a fine line.

Nah it gives me a chance to poke fun at every other nations whims and desires. :P

The INF is so cool we don't have that problem... though i am thinking on putting a bounty on Celes...

Seriously though, I'm up for helping out as long as timeliness ala a days notice isn't a prerequisite.

I'm in too. I would like to help you guys. :mrgreen:

I played most of the games, I didn't played the gaidens though. I beat 1,2,3,4 and Tactics and played a little bit of 5 and Card Stories.

I have been a member for 2 years or something I think. But I was kinda stupid at the beggining. xD

Hope I can help. ;)
