Editors note Nyxxie

The Buzz and I welcome you to round six and Issue Number 1 of the Bootleggers Buzz! The round has just started and already are we proud to present our first issue full of information. Although we lack crew takeovers, Nation and State Don killings and promotions, we are happy to report on staff promotions and all the new and exciting things round six has to offer everyone.

When one round ends and a new one begins, players feel motivated to become the first of something, of anything, to get their name recognized by the thousands of players who log in every day, hoping to do the very same. Only one week into the reset we have already congratulated our first Boss, our first crew, our first Bullet Factory and Casino holder and even a new Help Desk Operator. With so much going on in such little time, it's sure going to be an exciting new round.

In the coming weeks, The Buzz will introduce new weekly articles as well as bring back some old ones that seemed to be a hit in the reset prior. My experience with the Buzz is a long one and I have been editor for quite some time now. We have almost tried everything and anything to spark some fun into the Buzz, but we are not done yet. Look forward to new articles to arise in the coming weeks, as well as fun and challenging contest and laugh out loud comics poking fun at not only the game, but the players and staff within. My job as an editor is to challenge my writers to bring forth new and exciting ideas as well as demand the same from our devoted readers and the players of this game we all lose sleep over. If you want something added into the Buzz, or think you have a great idea, I am only a bootmail away! We will consider anything that comes our way.

Currently, the Buzz has a staff of eleven. We are always looking for more! If you think you have what it takes to be a writer of the Bootleggers Buzz and believe you can devote your time to serve the game in a way like no other, feel free to submit an application by scrolling down and clicking the second drop down menu, being sure to choose "Application." There, you will be prompted to write an article as yo would as an official Buzz writer about a recent Bootleggers event. Remember to mind your punctuation, grammar, form and spelling. Writing quality is very important to us and we will only allow the best of this game into our coveted forum. We want you, yes you! So type away and start sending those articles in!

If you don't want to devote week after week to the Buzz, there is another option for you. Anyone and everyone in this game can forward a FREELANCE ARTICLE to the Buzz. You do not have to be a writer of the Buzz to do so. Simply submit the already written article by scrolling down and clicking the second drop down menu, being sure to choose "Freelance Article." We will add anything (within reason and editor discretion) to the Buzz. This includes, but not limited to, your own opinions about a certain event, promotion of Staff, action of Staff or new feature. We will not edit you. If you can bring forth your opinion in a mature manner, you will be assured to see your article in the upcoming issue prior to submitting.

Now, onwards to the articles. I hope you enjoy this first issue and find it to be above average to our usual. Remember to rate and comment on every article you read.

Thanks and happy gaming!
