Yes, I am now accepting submissions from basically everyone. Here's the way it works:
Read the Submission Guidelines. Decide if your submission fits within these guidelines. I am currently accepting guides, fanfics, reviews, and articles (editorials). I will accept articles of all types, and I will accept reviews for all games (provided there are no spoilers!) The games for which I am currently accepting guides and fanfiction are:
This list, of course, will be updated as I complete more games.
Okay, so your submission fits the guidelines? Good. Email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line of your email should go something like this: RPG Place Submission - [Type of Submission] - [Game]. So if you were submitting a Final Fantasy VIII fanfic, your subject line would say: RPG Place Submission - [Fanfic] - [Final Fantasy VIII]. Things to include in the body of your email are:
Don't forget to attach your work! I will accept .txt, .html, and .doc (for Windows) files. If you're on a Macintosh, please save your file into one of these three formats, because I can't read Mac files anymore :(
Once I get your submission, I will email you back to let you know I have received it. Then it goes into my queue of submissions to review. Once I have reviewed it, you get another email from me, either telling you that I have accepted your submission, or telling you that I've rejected it. If I reject it, I will usually tell you why.
Becoming a Contributor
Everyone who had been accepted as a contributor at The RPG Place by July 24, 2003 remains one until he or she requests that I no longer keep him/her on as one. If you submit to me after July 24, 2003, then you must submit 20 pieces of work (and I have to accept them) to become a contributor, at which point you get a bio page in the Contributors Section and your submissions get priority for posting.
Simply put, when I want staff, I'll send an announcement to all contributors asking who feels like helping out. If you aren't already a contributor, I'm sorry to say that your chances of making staff are slim to none. I need proof that you're capable of good quality work, and also I need to know that you meet my other standards.
