    The Business Advice Forum News Team will post business and webmaster news stories in our Current Affairs and Business News section. News Team members can write some of their own stories (optional) or write a very brief description of the news story and post a link to the original. Please note that writing your own stories is not a requirement for this position.

    • It is hoped that each member of the team will post one or two news stories, on most days
    • Members of the News Team will get their username displayed in blue and have the "News Team" title shown underneath their username
    • I can suggest some sources of news stories if you are not sure where to get them.

    These positions should be of interest to anyone who;

    • Is interested in journalism and/or writing for the web
    • Would like to gain some experience of being forum staff
    • Is interested in business and webmaster topics
    • Would like to be recognised as an active participant on our prestigious webmaster and business forum.

    Please send me a PM if you feel that this is something that might be for you and please do let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for your interest!

    Thanks for asking William King. The responsibilities will be to post one or two news stories, that would be of interest to our members, on most days of the week, about 5 - 10 stories per week would be great.

    Skill required - the ability to recognise stories that would be of interest to our members and a good standard of written English.

    As non-premium member, are we allowed to read those post here in BAF? or it is private for premium members only?

    firstchoicecar all members will be able to read those posts. Premium Members don't have access to any additional content or hidden forums. The posts will be in our Current Affairs and Business News forum - can you see the posts in that section now?

    I have sent a PM. I do have a suggestion. How about having the News Team members post articles in their area of expertise?

    Thanks for the suggestion Joseph, yes that would work great. It would be better for our members and for the News Team themselves, if they posted stories related to their own knowledge and interest.
