New staff positions available: night shift news editor, Japanese to English translators
Posted on 6 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Site updates | 0 comments
It’s that time again: we have some staff openings available, and are looking to add some fresh faces to the team. Right now there are two positions in particular we’re looking to fill. Along with a new night shift news editor to help Devin out, we’re hoping to expand our lineup of Japanese translators.
For the news position, you will be responsible for covering the site twice per week (those days would be decided once you’ve been brought on board) at the following times:
Update on search for new reviewers and more
Posted on 10 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Site updates | 0 comments
Around the middle of last month, I added a post to the site mentioning our interest in bringing in a couple of new reviewers. The response was really overwhelming, as we had a ton of interest in the position – definitely more than was expected. We ended up receiving a ton of applications so it took me a little over a month to respond to everyone’s initial emails, read through samples, and think about who would be best for the position.
We’ve now notified the people we’ll be moving forward with. I want to thank everyone who showed interest initially as well as for their patience during the decision-making process. I truly appreciate it.
But the search for new blood is never over! Right now we’re considering expanding our translators team. If you believe you’re knowledgeable with Japanese and have what it takes, please send in an email here (select “Site Position”). Note that it’s technically an unpaid position, but we’ve been slowly moving towards compensation. Also, unlike the recent reviewer position, we’re much less certain about how many people we’ll add (if any). We’ll only expand the team if it makes sense for everyone involved. Thanks!
Update: Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest in joining our team! There was a massive response – many more people wrote in than I was expecting. I’ve been sending out a bunch of email to those who submitted an email over the past week or so, but still have a little ways to go. The Nintendo Direct and me being sick also threw a bit of a wrench into things. Thanks for your patience, and I’ll respond to everyone ASAP. Also, please note that we will no longer accept further entries.
You know what we haven’t done in a long time? Add some new reviewers to the team. The last time we did this was three years ago! With all of the Switch games coming out these days (don’t sleep on those eShop-only titles), we really need to fix that.
I don’t want to put a number on it, but we’re probably looking to bring in a couple of new reviewers. If you’re at least 18 years old, are interested in possibly reviewing games for Nintendo Everything, and would like to learn more, shoot us an email by visiting our contact form. Choose the “Site Position” option and please tell us your age as well as which part of the world you’re located in. Please note that this is an unpaid position. We’ll follow up as soon as possible with each person.
Adding to the night shift team
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Site updates | 0 comments
Hello folks! I’m taking a quick break from my usual exhaustion to pass along a note about a position we currently have open on the site. We’re looking to add to the night shift news team – although depending on where you are in the world, it may not actually be a night shift!
Right now we want to have one more person on the team contribute 2-3 days per week for posting news on the site. The times are as follows:
Hello! Quick but important public service announcement about emails.
Unfortunately, within the past couple of weeks, our system experienced some major issues. That meant a number of emails were delivered to us late or not at all. Making matters worse, the issue impacted messages that we were sending out and replying to as well.
Introducing the new video face of Nintendo Everything
Posted on 1 year ago by Eric Zauch in Features, Site updates, Videos | 0 comments
Hello everyone! Joy consumed me when I found out I would be switching up Nintendo Everything’s YouTube content with a breath of wild new videos. Today I’m hyped to finally be unveiling the first of many videos – this is just a happy introduction and a snippet of the many clips to come. I look forward to interacting with you all and smashing out content that I hope you’ll ultimately enjoy.
Two weeks ago, we posted about several different positions we were looking to fill on the site. I wanted to give everyone a quick status update ahead of (during?) E3.
Submissions are now closed. Thanks to everyone who expressed interest!
Despite being more tired and busier than ever before, I want us to be able to try new things and possibly return to old things. However, we can’t get much done unless we bring on some additional help. I’ve realized that we need to bring some fresh folks on board as well to sort out some vacancies.
With that in mind, we are looking to add some new volunteers, and we have more openings than in the past – at least at one time. Ranked in terms of priority, we currently have the following positions available:
Hello! If you’ve been having any issues accessing the site over the past couple of days, it’s been intentional. Mostly.
We’ve been carrying out some much-needed site maintenance this week. We didn’t really expect things to last as long as they did, unfortunately. If we anticipated maintenance taking multiple days, we would have provided advance notice. The site has been up for the most part, but today in particular there were issues. We’re mostly done… for this week anyway, though if you happen to see any downtime (it’s very unlikely), you’ll know why.
There’s actually a ton that we still have to do from a technical perspective, but in the near-term, it shouldn’t impact anyone who visits Nintendo Everything normally. This year, hopefully sooner rather than later, we hope to make some improvements that won’t just be for the backend of the site. While we’re definitely not going for an overhaul/redesign, we’ll be implementing at least one change that has been requested in the past.
Thanks for bearing with us!
Nintendo Everything turns 10
Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Site updates | 61 Comments
I can hardly believe that I’m writing this, but Nintendo Everything is now ten years old. We first opened our doors way back on October 23, 2007. 10 years is a long time to be doing anything. In the age of the internet especially, it practically feels like we’re a dinosaur at this point.
