Site news: seeking news writers, advertising update, survey

Posted on July 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Site updates

We have a few different pieces of site news to discuss. Let’s get right to it!

News position openings

We have two news positions open on the site at the moment. The first one is a higher priority, but if we can find someone capable of handling the second position as well though, that’d also be great.

Below are the times for each:

Position 1 (two days a week)

– 2 PM PT – 6 PM PT
– 5 PM ET – 9 PM ET
– 10 PM in the UK – 2 AM in the UK
– 11 PM in Europe – 3 AM in Europe

Position 2 (Wednesday, possibly Friday)

– 1 AM PT – 4:30 AM PT
– 4 AM ET – 7:30 AM ET
– 9 AM in the UK – 12:30 PM in the UK
– 10 AM in Europe – 1:30 PM in Europe

The purpose of both positions is exactly as what you would expect – to deliver news to the thousands of readers reading Nintendo Everything. If chosen, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about posting on the site.

Please note that both of these positions are non-paid, at least to start out with. If you’re interested in either one, please send in a brief email here (select “Other”) expressing your interest. We’ll take things from there. When sending in the email, please specify which position you’re going for.

Advertising

I wanted to make it absolutely clear that we don’t accept pop-up ads on Nintendo Everything. They’ve not been approved to run in any capacity. However, we’ve been hearing some feedback that redirects / pop-ups have become an issue on mobile for some users.

If you do encounter these types of ads – be it on mobile or PC – or any other intrusive advertising, please send in an email through our contact form here (select “Advertising”). If you can, provide us with the following:

– Your region (USA, etc.)
– The device you’re on
– URL of the ad
– Screenshot of the ad

We don’t want these ads here as much as you do, and they’re always a nightmare for us to deal with. Some of you have worked with us in the past in eliminating troublesome ads. We’ll always do our best to swiftly take care of similar situations in the future.

Survey

It’s been a long while since we last hosted a survey for Nintendo Everything’s readers. If you have a few minutes to spare, please answer a few questions here. None are mandatory, so you can skip anything you’re not interested in responding to. We appreciate your feedback in advance!

    Took the survey 🙂

    I only wish I had enough time to fill one of these news role. I actually worked in the past in a few Nintendo related websites/pages.

    As for the toxic new ads in the comment section like that Ellen crap and other clickbait?

      This literally just happened within the past couple of days, and I’m thinking about how to deal with it. Disqus enabled ads on the site and we basically don’t have any say in the matter unless we pay to disable them. It doesn’t effect 95% of sites apparently, but we’re in that 5% due to the site’s traffic.

      Right now we’ve set it up so that the ads are the least intrusive as possible. Hopefully we can get rid of them entirely in the future.

        Oh wow, I didn’t know all that. Yeah, before this it was Amazon products based on search history which was really nice actually.

        If you pay to get rid of disqus’ ads, will there still be ads on the site in the banners and sidebars or is disqus the only ad service here? If they’re not I’d use money from your subscription service or patreon to get rid of disqus’ and then still get revenue from the other providers.

        Keep in mind I know zero things about running a website so that might be really stupid, sorry. I can critique news staff for typos and complain about ads but really, you all do a fantastic job here and I don’t ever mean to usurp that or intrude with stupid suggestions.

    I applied yesterday for the first opening! I love Nintendo and the community and would do anything to become more involved when I can with it! Being a part time game designer I would love to eventually get my game onto the switch!

    I’d love to collaborate with Nintendoeverything but the time is awful for people who live in Europe
