Well yes, and I do the column now (www.massively.com/category/wasteland-diaries) but I need someone to take over so I can do managerial stuff, or something like that ;)

Also, I want to point out to everyone (before anyone asks) that these aren't the only games we're covering in columns. Some columnists are already in the hiring/paperwork process now.

Good luck, Shawn. Love the site -- just wish I wasn't getting ready to start my post college career with 80-100% intl travel. No time to MMO makes me a sad panda.

I would love to apply for this but I don't play any of these games, so ill wait, hidden in the bushes until an opportunity arises, then I will pop out and shout "hooraaa!"..... ooo, that was random wasn't it.

Just to be clear, how uber do we need to be in-game for this to be an option?....I mean, is there a gear check? =)

Include whatever you think is important to tell us about your character, gear, etc. We want to make sure you know the game and love playing it (and writing about it!).

Ahaha, I don't think this is a good job for me, although I have an excellent understanding of the English language one or two grammatical errors always slip through my final quality checks...

Not to mention the fact that I play none of the games in that list.

No job for joo!
Only the Queen's proper English shall be tolerated! Anything else would be absolutely unacceptably uncouth!

Would it be preferable for the sample column's topic to be on one of the four games listed?

I'm guessing all these columns are going to be for relatively mainstream MMOs, something I find myself repulsed from least days, or are you planning to get into some of the more niche games like Darkfall and the upcoming Mortal Online?

I can understand why not if it's a paid job.

Right now Mike, we're only after large mainstream titles with these new in-depth columns. We want to see how they all work out (which is quite well, right now) before we go adding more games to the list of columns.

So, Darkfall might be something for us to look at for a future column if things go well for the mainstream columns. I can certainly see why it would be very beneficial to have an in-depth column on a game like Darkfall, and would certainly entertain that possibility.

But, let's get the wheels rolling first before we tackle something like that.

Too bad we can't just nominate other people. I can think of a couple of great bloggers who'd fit those requirements!

Link them to this post if you can. If someone's interested and would be good at the job, it'd be a shame for them to miss the opportunity to apply!

Yeah, be sure to spread the word. Spread the links!

And if they seem on the fence about the whole deal, tell them we get paid. :3

If you'd said League of Legends, I would have been all over this.
Potentially I could also cover Heroes of Newerth as well.

Spend 2 hours with league of legends and tell me it doesn't deserve its own column:

We're making the editorial decision to not cover League of Legends or Heroes of Newerth. Both of them are too far from the MMO model and closer to the Warcraft III model (which makes sense, as both of them are DOTA inspired.)

Hrm - shall I apply for the STO column?
I kid, I kid!! ;p

Great to see another round of Massively looking to it's readership for fresh talent. There are a bunch of commentators here that would pen some great reading, in my honest opinion.

Good stuff =)

It does bear mentioning though that the double IP weekend starts today for League of Legends though.
Its the perfect time to hop in the game, as 5 games in you'll have enough for the can of destruction they call Ryze or the stealthy grass bandit they call Teemo (CAPTAIN TEEMO!)
