ARC Press Office

Postby Sealurk » Fri Jan 22, 2016 9:45 pm

An idea came to me while browsing the Player Events and News Items thread over on the FD forums - on occasion, multiple members of the same group will post the same or similar stories to GalNet. Though we currently don't have much or anything to post about, should that happen I'd like to suggest we have an 'ARC Press Office' that all ARC related GalNet stories have to go through and we have a single designated person who posts stories to GalNet, regardless of who's written them (the correct commander will be credited of course). This makes sure we're all happy with what's going out, we all know about it and we don't have duplicated effort.

What does everybody think?

Agreed, (but I'm not being the press officer ;) )

I'm in complete agreement with Dayrth. (about me not being the press officer) <grin>

Well, fair enough - I thought that might happen, I just didn't want to directly nominate myself. To be fair I have already had two articles published on GalNet, though I only recently became aware of the publication of one of them despite it being submitted months ago. For reference:

So, as newly appointed ARC Communications Director I'm going to suggest a submission process.

  1. If you have a GalNet submission written about ARC post it here
  2. If you only have an idea for a GalNet submission about ARC, post those here as well - I or somebody else can write something up
  3. ARC members can discuss the piece and provide feedback on anything they want, including but not limited to spelling, grammar, word count, accuracy, lore/canon conflict and simply whether they think it's worth submitting
  4. If approved and once the piece has been suitably modified I will submit it to the Player Events & News Items thread, but with the name of the commander who wrote it
  5. All full submissions should adhere to the same structure and format as those in the Player Events & News Items thread:
    Date:
    Location:
    Title:
    Description:
    150 words maximum

Remember, Frontier own the copyright on anything that gets published in-game.

This thread should also be used for any ideas for promoting ARC outside of the game and GalNet, for example, Dayrth's radio advert for Hutton Orbital Radio (and probably Radio Sidewinder as well) or a short YouTube video.

To gain a little more exposure ARC has now been added to Cmdr Bran Tse Mallory's site, here: Link

Proposed GalNet Article:

Date: ASAP, definitely before the end of the CG!
Location: Zaonce, Colando Po and Tianve
Title: ARC mobilises to protect miners
Description:

As miners across the galaxy respond to the urgent request for osmium at Fraser Orbital in LHS 2936, the Alliance Rapid-reaction Corps has announced it is mobilising a significant number of its pilots to assist the accompanying security operations and has urged other commanders to follow suit.

Speaking on behalf of the ARC one commander told us, "Yes, we're a small group, but we're dedicated and we want to ensure that everybody contributing to this goal can do so in safety. To this end the pilots we have deployed will be patrolling key extraction sites in several local systems. We’re also happy to provide combat escorts to security-conscious miners if they request our assistance."

Okay, I'll submit it then. :)

EDIT: It's up, albeit very slightly altered.

For a little extra exposure ARC is now a registered group/wing on INARA.cz, here (you'll probably need to be logged in).
