It sure is, but having 8 years with not much success really hits home when my parents are concerned, hence why the threat of being kicked and me considering the move.

I am going to fire a whole bunch of questions at you re:job seeking. I know my 6 months isn't completely comparable (and I don't want this to become a swarm of people jumping on) but just want to ask a few things.

1) You say not much, are we talking no employment at all? Temporary work? etc.

2) Apart from school what other experiences are there on the CV?

3) Any volunteering or adult education courses that you have done?

4) What field are you applying to?

5) (not to be judgemental) What are you doing in an average week?

Not that I am stereotyping at all here but it would probably not be a good to bring anything into a bedsit that couldn't be easily replaced.

Plus, you say you're long term unemployed. What areas of employment seeking are we talking about here? If you are very long term I think the job centre are obligated to send you to courses... Or at least your local adult education facility will offer free/discounted skills classes.

I've got a friend who does book and videogame reviews and pointed him towards TAR too, hopefully he will submit some stuff soon

I think I love you

Signed on up! Lets see if I can think of some work to submit. Do you have problem with me submitting some older articles of mine that would fit to fill out the site along with the new stuff?

That would be great!

I would like to put more stuff of my own up but... those lessons won't plan and resource themselves.

Seriously, that would be amazing :)

How about sending it on over to an admin?

My main worry with this is that staff doesn't have time to post these things we've written. It'd be a complete waste of time and effort for those involved if staff isn't willing to put it on the site. I want to help get this site back on the right track, but it's a little frustrating when you keep hitting the "No time, don't care" wall. =/

For the media boards... this could work with aligning TAR's and PKMN.NET's forums but what if we have an Album of the Week, Song of the Week, TV Show of the Week, Film of the Week, Book of the Week and Game of the Week. Discussion would take place on the forums and then analysis can be provided by the contributors on TAR for those choices. It'd be a great way of being interactive between both sites with retaining this community (as I alluded to before, not all of the member base will switch over to TAR which means this would keep both audiences together).

I could write up a weekly thing like 'Pokemon of the week' that talks about a Pokemon in all aspects (competitively, from my personal stance, and some general information about it), as a way to show people that this site is still active and wants users to come back. Now, you could get knowledge about a Pokemon from Bulbapedia, but it's so structured and written professionally. I'd like to write something that has a bit more soul to it, and I definitely have extensive knowledge about Pokemon from many aspects, especially competitively (we could even split the Pokemon of the Week into sections written by different users. For example, one user writing the competitive aspect of the Pokemon, one writing anime bio, one writing about cards it has been featured in, etc.).

I'm going to answer these quoted things at some point in this post but instead of splitting up this thought vomit with quotes it made more sense to just have it as a sorta-cohesive thing.

It is no point denying that with myself, Joeno, Mike and Rob being in full-time employment (Mike being in full-time education with employment on the weekends) that the posting of new content on this site has been lax. It's happened, it's there. We still have an admin where this isn't an issue.

To stand up for Joeno here, he is still working his socks off doing behind the scenes work on this site when he gets home from work. For me when I am teaching I come home to marking and lesson planning until 10pm... so the last thing I want to do is extra work when I could vegetate with some Gilmore Girls/Adventure Time/Star Trek etc (especially when I lose my weekends to lesson planning).

The whole point of TAR was Mike's and myself and Jeroen did a lot of work to get it off of the ground. Lottie has been fantastic since the launch and she can back me up when I say that when sent an article (as editor I will be looking at all as well as writing my fair share) it is up in a few days unless I lose the e-mail which can happen.

If you want to do some writing there is this new place for you to do it and the scope is pretty wide. And I am pretty darned reliable when it comes to putting stuff up. If you want to know where to send it PM me here and I'll let you know and we can get a conversation going OR even PM me on TAR OR Facebook message me as that is what Lottie does. We even have a Facebook group which mostly me, Lottie and Joeno so I would welcome the company.

I guess what I am trying to say is that this has been open for a fortnight and no one else has asked to write anything for it... and yet you guys want to write stuff...

If you have no interest in writing about games, movies, music or other stuff and the only way you can think of writing content is Pokémon stuff, well I step forward now and say that until you get some decent HTML in your knowledgeheads.

I am not in anyway saying TAR will be replacing PKMN but an admin split will probably be happening with Mike and myself taking TAR duties and Rob and Rex more on the PKMN side. Joeno has the task of behind the scenes on both and thus deserves ice cream at the next meet... not from me as I keep him regularly fed and watered.

I guess the tl;dr is that a meeting between the admins will be needed at some point where we can co-ordinate the four worker bees about how we can raise the content stuff... but TAR is currently here and we want to make this work.

I liked Youth Novels but think Wounded Rhymes is the more consistently good album.

Updates / NEW SITE: The Acid Reflux!
« on: August 14, 2012, 22:20 »
Right, we were going to announce this in a week or so but now seemed as good a time as ever but... WE HAVE CREATED A NEW SITE!!!

*ting sparkle sparkle*

So what is The Acid Reflux (or TAR for short)? Well, the idea was originally thought up earlier in the year (or last year I forget) and spare time has been used to construct this new site.

The basic thing is we're all growing up and some people are beginning to lose that loving feeling with Pokémon. This site is a way for us to channel our PKMN.Net stylings to something more wide-ranging. So we made a magazine site (like Popmatters or AV Club) where things like movies, film, sports etc can be written about.

As of tonight's re-launch myself, Lottie and Typhlosion all have articles up but... and here is the cool part... so can you!

Simply register with the site and the forums there (ooh new forums...) and you can read, comment and even write your own articles! Seen a great film? You can review it! Heard an awful album? Review it! Want to start your own regular piece? Pitch it and you can be a writer!

As of now we are mainly using the PMs to communicate since I am unsure about e-mail addresses at the moment (but if you have me on Facebook that would work too). Also, feel free to tell your mates if they long to be entertainment journalists! This is good padding for a portfolio.

That's it for now (also, if your write enough you get to join the exclusive Facebook group). I hope you enjoy the first articles on pasta, iOS games and the art of film adaptations!
