Massively is an enthusiast blog focused on the massively multiplayer genre of online gaming. In addition to providing the latest MMO-related news, we produce informative and entertaining editorials, guides, features, livestreams, podcasts, and more, all from writers dedicated to playing and writing about MMOs and multiplayer online video games. The blog was founded in November of 2007 as part of the Joystiq network, which also includes Joystiq and WoW Insider. We pride ourselves on upholding a strict set of ethical standards that aren't found at traditional games media outlets. We don't accept stipends or travel expenses from game studios, we don't do score-based reviews, and we don't control advertising or giveaways (AOL's ad team does). Joystiq's ethics policy likewise extends to us.
We are not currently hiring staff or freelancers and cannot accept unpaid submissions, so please don't send unsolicited resumes. All other inquiries can be made via our tip box rather than to our contracted writers. Head to our community page for questions about our commenting system, code of conduct, and how you can follow Massively around the web.
