Editors note Poison

Welcome to Issue #14 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

powerbear has rejoined the team this week, and filled the final spot on the columns team for now! Which means that now we've split the team into columnists and writers we have a total of just two vacancies on the Buzz team, both for news writers and once they're filled they're filled, so get your applications in ASAP. Submit your applications as always, at the bottom of the Buzz page as a freelance article. This week I'm going to suggest the same subjects as last week that you could use if you're struggling for inspiration (which are totally made up); for the news guys it's the news that Mika has been removed as a Moderator suddenly, find out why and report on it! This is interesting news! Get on it!

Last issue we had a little bit of controversy surrounding a supposedly forged screenshot. I still stand by the publication of the story, it is for you guys to believe what you wish to believe. I believe that we did enough to ensure the genuineness of the article and it was justified to publish the story.

Onto this week and after the bloodiness of last week we've had a rather quieter one this week. We did see some action from the Boss of the oldest Crew on Bootleggers though, BSF2000 himself bringing us a whole array of updates, somewhat later than expected but there you are, I guess we'll just have to deal with it. I'm confident we'll hear more about the reasons behind the delay in the next edition of BSF's 2000 Characters. We have an article going through all the updates, please comment on it to let us know what you think of the improvements made to the game!

As some of you may have noticed, I seem to be a crew boss, and the life doesn't suit me. So this week we're giving away the crew spot of MS13. It's a simple contest this week, but you'll have to sign up to the new Buzz contest site in order to take part. We have articles on both the contest and the contest site for you to read, so have a read and get involved in the site even if you don't want to take part in this contest as all future Buzz contests will be run through it. Thanks to Sky for all his hard work in putting it together.

That's all for this week folks, have a good one.

Buzz Contest Site Poison




After the amazing success of the last Buzz contest, we decided it was time to do another... However, something that we learned from last time was that it's rather difficult to keep track of a whole load of bootmails. So we went back to the drawing board, and asked Sky to design us a competition site, which he kindly did.
