1. What job are your applying for? (reporter, advertiser, etc.) I would like to be a reporter and spell checker.
2. How long have you been using Scratch? Almost a year now.
3. How much are you on Scratch? 1. Never 2. Sometimes 3. Often 4. Everyday 5. All day, everyday! None of the above: ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME!!!!!!!
4. How did you discover The JC Times? I've read it quite a few times now.
5. Do you commit to getting the content expected of you in on time with good quality and neatness? Of course. Neatness is my top priority for spell check. I won the spelling bee at my school a while ago and people started using me as a human dictionary. I can't stand misspelled words.
6. Questions? Comments? Concerns? Write them here. None, as of now,

Thanks for applying! We have accepted your application and you are now part of The JC Times team! Once we start getting articles in, I will send ones to you to be revised and checked. Make sure you do your best work. We'll have a team of checkers, the article will go to one person, then the next, to get multiple revisions done. We thank you, and we hope to get an article to you soon!

Then for the reporter job, just get an article in once a month, including this one. It can be anytime and you can write more than one if you want. You'll post them on this forum thread to be revised. Should we have a separate forum thread for articles? Let me know. Thanks for applying, and I'm excited to see what you write!

I guess you could, but problem is that ScratchPress already has a scroll bar and we want to be as original as possible.

You could write about updates from the Scratch Team, game reviews, interviews with other Scratchers, make a comic, conflicts happening in Scratch, etc. Hopefully this helps!

Ok, here's the game I chose to be featured, and I wrote a little overview of the the game. PS: Sorry it was a bit late. It also might need some edits.
Jetpack Master
In Jetpack Master, you play as a little blue blob thing with a jetpack. The art style is retro and pixelated, made in bitmap. You can also choose the option of 2D or 3D, which only affects the spikes and walls, but is still a nice touch. The gameplay is similar to Jetpack Joyride, where you hold space to accelerate upwards, and have to avoid various obstacles and collect coins. You can also buy new jetpacks in the shop with coins. This is a very nice and polished game, so be sure to try it out.

Thanks! I'll give this to our spell checkers for revision. I hope to see this in the paper soon!
