Write for Wii U Daily: we’re seeking Contributors!

You may have seen our sister sites PS4 Daily and Xbox One Daily are seeking contributors (here and here), and with those respective consoles launching imminently, it makes sense. Nintendo’s Wii U has some stiff competition ahead, but if you’re like us, you’re still loving your console and continually hoping for exciting new games and announcements. Trust us: they’re coming. In fact, we’re anticipating so much Wii U awesomeness in the coming months that we’re hoping to get a little help with all the coverage.

That’s right… we want YOU to be on our team.

The  gaming community is filled with passionate, educated enthusiasts with loads of insight and knowledge to share. Think you got what it takes? Then consider this your invitation to apply as a Contributing Author on the Wii U Daily team.

What is a Contributing Author?

The contributor position is an unpaid position. It provides a great opportunity to be published on a reputable news source. It’s a resume builder, opportunity to “get your name out there”, and allows you to engage in an open dialogue with a vibrant game-loving community.

What are the expectations of a Contributing Author?

Contributing Authors will be expected to publish a minimum of 1-3 articles each week. They’ll communicate closely with the editorial team via E-Mail, Skype, and other means, passing back and forth story ideas that could be either time sensitive or open ended. Maybe you already spend your time digging through gaming sites and social media and would love to bring the information to our readers with your own spin. Maybe you’ve always wanted to create videos, write tutorial articles, or compose full blown reviews of the newest games. We’re looking for a diverse set of contributors who can help take Xbox One Daily to the next level.

How can you apply?

  • Send an E-Mail to rob[at]gamefans[dot]com
  • Copy and paste “WUD Contributing Author” in the subject line… without the quotes
  • Tell us your name, age, location and a little bit about yourself
  • Tell us why you would make a great Contributing Author
  • Tell us how much time each week you hope to dedicate to Xbox One Daily (be realistic!) and what type of content you would most like to contribute
  • Copy/Paste/Link us (no attachments) to related writing samples in the WUD style
  • Give us an idea of what you’ll bring to the table by sharing a few unique article ideas you would enjoy writing
  • Convince us that you’re the “go-getter” we’re seeking!

TAKE YOUR TIME
We’re looking for quality applicants, not how quickly you can show your interest/urgency. We’re expecting a large number of inquiries and will be unable to respond to every person. If we’re interested, expect to hear back from us in the coming days, at which point we’ll narrow down the field of candidates with some follow up questions.

Teamwork No. 1

Good luck!

    Ewwww, does this require work?

    • Nintedward

      Yep. Funny how people have the motivation to write huge walls of comments, but no inspiration to write a genuinely beneficial article. lol :)

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        comments don’t have to be fairly unbiased though.

        in theory, anyways… some articles are a little… boop

      • Rinslowe

        Ouch Nintedward!
        I felt a pang of guilt after reading that, LOL.

        :)

      • Immallama22

        Hey by the way, how come I never see you on the forums? You’re so active here!

        Come to the dark side!

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Awwwh….but it’s fun typing out huge walls of comments. Just imagine how big my walls of news will be. :D

      • Clel

        ARTICLE WALL ALERT!!

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Know what you saying. Im allergic to that too…

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Not really. Just sell your soul to Nintendo and all will be good.

  • Sdudyoy

    I can’t write for the site where I get all my updates from.

    • Deadpool U

      Same here.

    • Niknique

      Lol!!

    • Nintendoplaystation

      I completely agree. Similar when I look for a different job and cus I love games
      My wife says why don’t o get a job to do with gaming, nah that’s my past time pleasure or escapism. I think I wouldn’t enjoy my hobby as much.

    • Clel

      I get my updates from other sites (as there’s more coverage), but I come here for the comments :D

  • gtosheex

    I stopped reading after i saw the “unpaid position” part =P

    • Clel

      You greedy bastard =P

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    Good luck everyone!

  • LopsidedPasta

    I love writing and Journalism, am a highschooler, and am planning to make a career out of writing in some form or another. But I honestly couldn’t care less about the XBOX1 or PS4. I’m not trying to spout Nintendo propaganda, I just genuinely don’t care. I would love to write for Wii U daily someday, but I don’t want to write about a topic I’m not interested in.

    EDIT: Thanks for all the support guys, I just sent the email! I have no idea if I’ll be one of the chosen writers, but I would love to contribute to this website in a bigger way. This is a great website, with a great community, and being more involved while also helping with my résumé would just be fantastic. We’ll see what happens!

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      You’d only have to write for Wii U Daily I think

      • e_rocket

        I think the same…

      • LopsidedPasta

        ohhhhhhhhh. oh. I just reread the article. I’m a little embarrassed I screwed that up, but yeah! You bet I’ll apply for Wii U daily! If I get accepted, it might mean a few more weekend articles!

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          Good luck!

        • ShilaquilOneal

          Hope you get the gig. Lets give Ashley some rest. I mean she’s been doing all the work here.

          You reading me Wii U Daily? Hope you’re paying Ashley for her work.

          • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

            No rest for the wicked. I’m eagerly anticipating reading everyone’s samples, though!

        • Mario

          Good luck!

        • Shota

          i’ll support you all the way!!

    • The Clockwork Being

      Same. I also really love writing. I am currently writing for my school paper and am writing 2 novels plus a manga script as of now.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        You should go for it. You are not biased to much. Thats always good.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Thanks Magnus. I’ll consider it.

        • Clel

          I think truthteller should write for them. He has some really insightful coverage and knowledge of this kind of subject, and almost no bias whatsoever.

          Fingers crossed.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, I thought about a coop project between me hand him. But im a bit afraid he will twist everything over to homosexuals, he got a strong fascination for that subject. Nothing wrong with that, but I never clearly understood the connection to videogames. I guess he is a wiser man than the most of us, and see everything in the bigger picture…

      • Guest

        manga script? awesome!

      • Shota

        what’s your nintendo id? mine id is: shonenjump

    • oontz

      So you’re not interested in video games? If you are already biased towards JUST nintendo, then there is no point writing for a game news site. You should want to write because you love video games, regardless of what system the game is on. If you’re biased you won’t be able to write fair objective articles because you’ll always side with Nintendo.

      • LopsidedPasta

        I own an xbox360, and play it a lot more than my Wii. But my Wii U still certainly has my attention. However, I’m not a “nintendrone” and believe me, Nintendo is ROYALLY screwing some stuff up. But your argument makes no sense.

        Why would the fact I’m not getting hard for the xbone be a sign that I’m incapable of writing articles about Nintendo? This isn’t my only source of gaming news.

        That’s like saying a skilled surgeon should be able to diagnose Athlete’s Foot. A writer specializes in his field, just like how a surgeon specializes in his. And believe me, I know PLENTY about the next gen consoles. Just… stop.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Here take my like!

          • LopsidedPasta

            I’ll send it right back!

        • imthebestonlyonegood

          So your trying to become a writer and you can’t even get a counter argument comment grammatically correct? You started a sentence with “And”. At the beggining you put a comma before and, lmfaooo GTFO

          • LopsidedPasta

            That was your first comment, so I assume you are Truthteller’s evil reincarnation or something. I guess we couldn’t go too long without some troll on this site, now could we?

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            OK so I’m a troll because I can sense your writing skills are below par if I was to compare you with a 5th grader?

          • LopsidedPasta

            I’m not going to let you bait me further. I’m stopping you here. I am done replying to you.

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            OK go on thinking you can write. I tried my best to enlighten you. Be free.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            You need a life. Did you know that even professional authors will make mistakes? And you’re no exactly a little Shakespeare yourself. Where’s the period?

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            I know professional authors and they do not make mistakes other than 1 or 3 words misspelled. Keep in mind they make 1 or two mistakes in an essay containing pages upon pages. This guy made a ton in just 500 characters lmfaooo

          • 00EpicGamer00

            So, what’s your point? That I was correct about authors making mistakes? Oh, and don’t correct someone on their spelling/grammar if you can’t do it correctly either.

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            My point was not to prove your point wrong but to prove your point miss leading. You see you made it sound like proffesional writers make a lot of mistakes when its quite the opposite, they are few. This guy made a fuckload of mistakes in only 500 characters. That’s abysmal.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            So, one mistake is a “fuckload”? What kind of logic is that? Also, why do you care? Are you the boss that’s hiring him? Are you his parents? Are you his English teacher? If you answered “no” to any of the questions, then you shouldn’t be making a big deal about it, seriously, just chill, and quite trolling (it’s very obvious that you are.)

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            The same reason why you care enough to reply to my comments. If anything id say your trolling

          • 00EpicGamer00

            That still doesn’t tell me why you wanted to be a jerk to him. If you honestly “cared” so much about someone’s else’s grammer from halfway across the world, then you’d of responded in a MUCH more mature manner.

            If you’re “not” a troll, then how come you say troll-like things? Like “lmfaooo” and “GTFO.” Only trolls use these, barely do I see regular people use these.

            Oh, I’m trolling because I’m trying to defend an actual intelligent human being, from a dead beat troll like you? Okay, yeah….great logic you have. That “response” you gave me, seems a little on the troll side, no? Quit the denial, you know it’s what you REALLY are :)

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            You really just dedicated 3 paragraphs? To a comment over the internet? Wow, you must have no life

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Yeah, you’re trolling alright. As, you can’t even come up with an ACTUAL argument. I think my work is done here. No use wasting my virtual breath on this. I shouldn’t of let it go this far in the first place, should of stopped at the first “response” from you. Oh well, you learn from your mistakes. I’ll be the bigger person, and just stop right here.
            Yeah, 3 paragraphs, mind blowing, huh? It’s this “thing” called “writing.”

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I could pick a lot of grammatical errors in your comment, but that would be too easy.

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            But I’m not trying to be a writer now am I?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True. You can be my editor. I’m sure you’ll do a fine job.

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            I would, thanks for the offer.

          • Rinslowe

            Not sure what you’re trying to be…
            But if I had to guess, a brand new avatar for an old poster…

            That’s really sad, come to think of it.
            Hmm…
            You and Oontz share a lot of grammatical similarities on closer inspection.
            “So you’re not interested in video games? If you are already biased towards JUST nintendo, then there is no point writing for a game news site.”
            &
            “So your trying to become a writer and you can’t even get a counter argument comment grammatically correct? You started a sentence with “And”.

            But not really implying anything there. Just that they do read in near uncanny similarity.
            :)

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            The fact that I don’t know you yet you made an irrelevant response amounting to over 2 paragraph’s shows you have no life. You’re a social reject

          • Rinslowe

            Hahaha…. Classic, classic.

            You needing multiple accounts for trolling, I would say fits that category quite snugly. Even funnier considering the bulk of my reply is your comment in quotation, lol.
            :)

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            How low can a guy like you go to become delusional and start seeing things that are not there. This is my first account. I will be the better man and not fall to your bait your Troll.

          • Rinslowe

            Oh for sure…
            :)

        • oontz

          I was just saying that if you’re not interested in something and then you are asked to give an unbiased view on a topic you wont be able to. If you like wiiu but not xb1 or ps4 than anytime you need to write about them you’ll always lean towards the one you favour. No? No offence intended… just better to have an unbiased view when writing news articles.

    • The Clockwork Being

      Well good. Hoping you get chosen. Still thinking if I should. Maybe once a week if thats possible for me. Anyways i’ll take a decision soon.

      • imthebestonlyonegood

        I will also start making articles seeing IM the only intellectual being that’s unbiased around here.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Yeah and all of us are bias. /sarcasm

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            YES you all are biased *no sarcasm*

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    Also, the above article says “Tell us how much time each week you hope to dedicate to Xbox One Daily” This is Wii U daily :P

    • Nintedward

      I’m not dedicating any time to xbox one ever, Microsoft commited suicide in my eyes. Wiiu and PS4 are good to go though :)

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        I think it’s a typo

      • dad da

        sony is not even good to me

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Deep down, you love them.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            You should apply. I mean it. Would be great for this page.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’ll consider it. You should go for it too.

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            I will thank you

      • rp17

        • imthebestonlyonegood

          *hell yeah new Wii U reveal!

          *Hangs Yourself*

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Failed attempt at trolling. Seriously, so many mistakes, it’s unbearable!

            Also, you REALLy failed at the “realistic bird” part. There’s no realistic bird in Call of Duty:Ghosts. Only dogs. (Assuming that you’re TRYING to copy what “rp17″ did, just in a Wii U format. Hmmm, oontz, is that you? Sure sounds like you…can’t be a coincidence.)

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            You sir are retarded, good day.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Can you prove that? Nope, you can’t. Seems Mr. Troll is mad because he was wrong, aww the poor thing. Seriously, why are you acting like this? All I did was explain a MAJOR problem in your post.

          • Guest

            Weak hardware and bad online you just made up. WTF, what bird? The ps4 and xbox one both require a day one patch too. And the other things aren’t even bad… You fail at trolling

          • 00EpicGamer00

            The “bird” that he mentioned is from the early tech demo showcasing the Wii U’s graphical limitations (It was simply dubbed, “Bird Tech Demo.”)

            In case you’re still not sure (or you just don’t remember), here’s the video:

            Read the actual article for confirmation that the PS4 does require a day one patch. And sorry, by the way. I couldn’t stand you not knowing a FACT. But, don’t worry, I’m done now.

  • Ducked

    Would you hire a 16 year old?

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Only 16? Thought you were much older :D

      • Ducked

        I like to carry myself much older ;)

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Most people your age doesnt have a laid back sense of humour. At least not fans. So I guessed you where older. Well, some mature quicker than others. :)

          • Ducked

            Why thank you! :) I try to live in a laid back world of peace. Of course classic DuckTales and Rescue Rangers reruns helped my maturity :D

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Took me years to mature, but I think we all have our moments of childish behavior.

          • Rinslowe

            Some, more so than others LOL….

            (typed while self reflecting)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I have no problem with that. I like to let my inner child lose. :)

          • Clel

            How old would you say I am? C’mon, be honest!

          • imthebestonlyonegood

            6.

          • Clel

            Exactly!

        • Mitch Hall

          I thought you were older as well – at least my age (18 on Wednesday.)

          • Ducked

            Happy (early) Birthday! :) Now you can call 1-800 numbers lol

          • Mitch Hall

            Haha thanks.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          You make me seem so immature in comparison…..and I’m okay with this. :)

          • Ducked

            Nah, you just have a sense of humor

      • imthebestonlyonegood

        PEDOPHILE ALERT

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Not very nice thing to say? I think I just report this one. :)

  • Shagrath1983

    Though I don’t post on here,I feel like writing alot about nintendo related articles. I feel like most of the passionate related feelings and insight actually come from the ones who post in these articles. I will definitely give this a shot.

  • dad da

    do you have to be over 18

  • The Clockwork Being

    I would write for the site but mostly on the weekend. During the week I have lots of work and have to work on my novel. I really love writing but what is lacking for me right now is the time.

    Edit: Sometimes I don’t even have time during the weekends. So I probably won’t all together.

    • LopsidedPasta

      You’re writing a book??? That’s awesome! What’s it about?

      • The Clockwork Being

        Thanks. Of course if I ever manage to publish i’ll talk to you guys about it. Just won’t try to intrude on the gaming aspect of this with all respect to Ashley.

        • LopsidedPasta

          Sounds good!

  • The Clockwork Being

    Just a tip. But make sure the ones you choose have a passion and want to write. Not some hater that just found a apportunity to spreed hate.(Dumbfuckiswhatsup/Lieteller im looking at you). Choose someone that can be objective, can be good with community and most of all might have already played the Wii U or own one.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      I would write great stories for WiiUDaily. Could write about all the great platformers, or the superb Virtual Console support, all the games that use the pad to its fullest, or a new Zelda game that drops the graphics yuk and goes in the direction of heavy text based games as they were in the 80’s.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Go for it Magnus!

      • Arthur Jarret

        A zelda text adventure?
        I’d be all over that! Started gaming with Zork!

  • Michael Ocampo

    Do you have to be 18 or older and a couple times when it’s supposed to say Wii U Daily, it says Xbox One Daily instead.

  • the1andonlyIKY

    I got confused…the first part is recruiting fir the Wii U Daily team..? But after that it’s for the Xbox One Daily team??? Copy and paste much? :P

  • Rinslowe

    I think both The Clockwork Being and Big Frankie would be awesome contributors…
    Both regular posters with fair and mostly unbiased opinions which the majority of readers can relate to.

    Just my personal opinion…
    :)

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Agree. Daniel would be good too (although I dont know if he wants too). He contributes alot here from before, and is a long time gamer.

      Also Jarred by the way. He got a really good knowledge on details.

      • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

        I always thought you’d be a good one, actually XD

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Yeah, well. Im afraid that someone would find out where I live and have me killed. So thats kind of out of the question. Also I couldnt be in the comment section teasing people anymore. And that would make me unhappy. :D

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            XD I feel like you could still tease people. There’s a difference between a war and a professional prank :P

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        If I was able to write my own personal opinions on Nintendo in general, instead of just traditional news posts, then I would have an interest in contributing to the site. I’m better at giving my own take on news. I guess I like to be a little controversial while still being unbiased about it at the same time. It makes for an interesting read and gives some extra flavor, but that’s just me. Not everyone will appreciate that. :P

    • Clel

      Haven’t been around in a while, who’s Big Frankie?

      • Rinslowe

        TBH, I don’t know the guy personally. But, each time he’s commented I’ve always found his posts to be very level headed and detailed…. Mostly.

  • Hipster Victor

    I would Love to write articles for the Wii U and maybe the PS4…..but im in a very tight budget now and I’ll have to wait till I get my Wii U.

  • mojack411

    I would wanna give this a shot, but I’m already tight on time as is being a college student. There’s no way in hell I’d be able to contribute 1-3 articles a week. I really, really wish I could, though. Best of luck to all those applying though!

  • TheKingJoseph

    I wonder if any of these sites earn money, if so how much?

    • Pikachief

      Probably not enough money to pay writers :P

    • Logic

      I’m leaning towards the fact that the majority of the writers here write because of their passion for Nintendo, not because of money.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    We’re looking for a diverse set of contributors who can help take Xbox One Daily to the next level.

    ? XBox?

  • Magnus Eriksson

    I will apply. Soon you will see three articles every week about the great analyst Michael Pachter and his accurate predictions about Nintendo. I will of course team up with this sites finest contributors, going to let Truthteller come with valuable inputs. I wont disappoint you dear fans! :)

    • CMB

      can’t wait

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Im already writing on an article about the great Virtual Console support and how its choice of titles like Tennis, Golf and Urban Champion reflects Wii U’s lack of shaders. Im sure I will become a beloved writer here.

        • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

          I love you already

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Hehe, Im afraid someone would search up my adress and have me killed. But you could maybe apply? You are liked here, have a sense of humour and could probably contribute with some good stuff? :)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Already applied, friend ;)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Great! Good luck. Hope you get it. :)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            Thanks! Me too :)

          • Clel

            I didn’t apply, too lazy to actually write articles :P

          • Shota

            i like you too sometimes XD

        • LopsidedPasta

          oh geez… :)

        • imthebestonlyonegood

          What’s so great about if I can buy the original for a dollar at a local used shop?

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Its called fishsticks, you have to boil them hard if you need an umbrella.

      WE WANT MORE TRUTHTELLER

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Truthteller should apply as well. I’m sure people would look forward to his awesome news posts.

        • The Clockwork Being

          Reading the truth in ever article… That sounds good.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sarcasm my friend.

          • The Clockwork Being

            Of course Daniel :). Happy to see that you are of those people that can pick in up on the Internet. Not many can do that.

      • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

        What about Knowledgeiswhatsup ? Where is he anyway ? :p

        • Magnus Eriksson

          I thought he was Truthteller?

          • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

            (well they are all the same so…)

          • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

            he is :P

  • Simon Stevens

    So….. google for news, copy and paste the news and make it look like I wrote it? CAN DO :D but won’t cause I ain’t getting payed >.> time is money bitches, please understand :)

    • Ducked

      The effort is amazing!

      • Simon Stevens

        I’ll have you know, I got a part time job promoting this console, as a technician I get a lot of call out jobs, I always slip “oh U you should have bought a Wii U” in there, regardless of what breaks, pc – should have bought a wii u, ps3/360 – should have bought a Wii U, I go to there crapper and it won’t flush – should have bought a Wii U, I always make the effort ^^

        • Ducked

          You should let them know that they can play their Wii U while sitting on the toilet, it’s like the biggest feature!

          • Simon Stevens

            I did that once but it lost connection when I leaned over for the toilet paper :( sad times

          • MetroidZero

            LOL

          • Ducked

            That’s a bummer. You should get your toilet installed a few feet closer to your Wii U

          • Simon Stevens

            Sadly, that’s not an option :( but I did move my bed on the other side of the room so I could play it there, maybe I should move it next to the toilet, best of both worlds.

          • Ducked

            Toilet by bed? That’s a win!

          • Simon Stevens

            I was banging 7 yellow blocks were I plopped WINNING c’mon bro I got Wario woods (8)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t know what you’re talking about, so I’ll smile and nod.

          • Simon Stevens

            Playing Mario on the can :)

          • Rinslowe

            Well……………………………….

            Why not, I guess.
            :)

          • Ducked

            You were banging bangers and mash weren’t you?

        • LopsidedPasta

          This may be the best thing I’ve seen today! +1,000!

  • Shagrath1983

    already sent my email to you guys, more of a HI MY NAME IS __ kind of an article more than what you asked for, but if you could email me and at least let me know how I did that would be great. Any feedback is good feedback, thanks

  • LopsidedPasta

    Question for applying: I’m a bit confused about the bullet point third from the bottom at the end of this article. Is it wanting me to submit my own work, or work previously done on WUD? If a WUD staff person could answer that, I’d be all set.

  • Leo

    “Tell us how much time each week you hope to dedicate to Xbox One Daily” uh???

    • iamserious

      ZERO! Lol

  • Madmagican

    As fun as it sounds, I really wish I actually had the time needed to put some real love into writing articles for this site (also this is one of my main sources of Wii U news)

  • majora :D

    I’m sorry, I’d like to apply, but I don’t apply to write for websites not based on my country.

    HOW DOES IT FEEL WHEN DISCRIMINATION IS AGAINST YOU, MOTHER****ERS??

    • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

      them’s some heavy words, Paul Blart

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Who pissed in your coffee this morning?

  • Mitch Hall

    I would apply, but I probably wouldn’t able to keep up with article deadlines since I already have school and a job to deal with.

    Still, it seems like it would be a really cool experience, and I hope one of the regular visitors ends up landing the job. I could see Ducked or Zorpix writing some good articles.

  • Lusunup

    I usually love doing this.. but people end up telling me to post articles somwhere else when I give news…:/ so I lost my mood.

    • CaesarGood

      sound like ur lost, u dont really love doin this..so go, go where ever ur mood goes, go…

      • Lusunup

        lol this is exactly what I mean. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • Simon Stevens

    please consider my friend as an applicant, thanks :)

  • bizzy gie

    Can’t wait to see a fellow commentor writing articles.

  • TheGMO808

    I’m pretty sure this is a copy/paste article with a few edits to adjust it for WUD. There are some errors as it asks us to write for Xbox One. Lol, didn’t even revise your article and you want new contributors who may even do a better job than this.

  • Michael Pullar

    Why location?

  • Pikachief

    Maybe I’ll try sending something in. The 3DS section could use some working hands to give it a bit more love, as far as articles go.

  • Justagamer

    i would but im way to busy filming or Gaming to do this but good luck

  • Ryushi

    Would love to – if of course, the heads of Wii U daily wouldn’t mind.

    So . . . Wish me luck!

  • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

    Best of luck to those who applied.

  • mrpikmin3

    can you be under 18

  • Scott

    I am very interested in this. Gaming journalism sounds fun.

  • Arthur Jarret

    Thinking about it… but I’m not sure about dedicating a set amount of time every week – but I have contributed tips to the site before and am already following almost all developers on miiverse.

    I’m pretty busy chatting with random people on miiverse… I also still have to finish my trilogy of novels (working on the last one, but as it weaves through the first two stories – they’re constantly being re-written), my home-made pinball machine, my site that hasn’t been updated in 5 years, my remodeled kitchen…

    maybe I shouldn’t start any new hobbies for now…

  • andrewjcole

    Read until I saw the word “age”. I hate being a kid.

  • CEObrainz

    Sounds interesting, might apply if I still can.

  • Steve

    Such a position would, indeed, be of benefit to me in the future, specially the experience I would gain as a contributing author — written communication skills are definitely essential in the professional world. Moreover, writing about subjects I really enjoy would allow for some relief from the everyday demands of college.

    So, I would definitely express my interest for application. I will review the application process shortly.

    Edit: I did want to ask to which website applicants will be writing for. Towards the beginning of the article, it says “Then consider this your invitation to apply as a Contributing Author on the Wii U Daily team.”. This implies that selected applicants will be writing for Wii U Daily. However, in the “How can you apply” section — the fifth bullet, specifically — it says “Tell us how much time each week you hope to dedicate to Xbox One Daily…”, which implies that applicants will be writing for XBox One Daily, not Wii U Daily.

    Can I please have some clarification with regards to which website applicants will be contributing to? Thank you!

  • Guest

    Is this for the Wii U …just asking, because on top it says it’s for xbox one…. SOMEONE PLEASE LET ME KNOW

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Yes, it’s for Wii U. I believe it’s just a typo.

  • Dastunna

    what do they mean by copy/paste samples???? can someone tell me

  • Nathan Verbois

    I am absolutely going to apply for this position, as this is actually something I’ve been actively trying to figure out a way to do!

  • Rugmouse

    It’s a shame I don’t have a more free time. I have actually done a fair bit of writing work with a different website, mostly tutorials and how-to’s, and I’ve really enjoyed the experience. It’s always a heap more enjoyable to write about something your passionate about, and that is exactly what this could be for one of you Wii U enthusiasts out there!

    Due to time limitations, I will have to pass on this opportunity, but any of you that enjoy writing, teaching, or simply engaging with others in intellectual discussions – you really have to take advantage of this! This sort of thing doesn’t happen all that often. Well played, Wii U Daily, and good luck with your recruitment process – I’m looking forward to a bright future for this site!

    I would accept if I was paid something in eShop credit. How else can I manage this expensive habit of mine.

  • Jon

    then you should never become a journalist.

  • oontz

    LOL, maybe learn a word’s definition before using it. It’ll make you look less like a tool.
