Our History & Goals


Dated back as far as 2004, the URPG Times had a humble beginning by its founder, [Fair] of PE2K. Although it started out solely for the URPG alone, Fair’s articles, along with his helpers in each section amassed popularity and fame over time, and thus his work evolved from a measly URPG oriented Newspaper to a forum wide Newsletter, “The PE2K Times”. Of course he was able to handle different kinds of new readers, in his own unique ways and boy, did he have a sense of humor! However, as time passed by, the PE2K Times died one eventual day. It was brought back up again as ‘The URPG Newsletter’, only to revolve around the URPG this time round, but due to some reasons and happenings, it went back to the graves where it emerged from. Days, Months, and a Year or so passed. When URPG opened a new Branch in the Bulbagarden Forums, the popularity and activity it had earned made concerning URPG Staff to think for a while, and decided to tamper with the dead Newsletter. We hope to be able to achieve the following:
  • Report on the URPG
  • Let the community know what's happening and what's interesting
  • Establish a dialogue with the members
  • Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Job Scope
Not sure of the requirements or the things that are expected of you for a specific job? No worries, I will explain it to you.

Trading Section
You will get a list of up for trades offers that are posted in the Trading Machine for that specific week. When sending the information to your Editor, remember to include the person's name that is offering the trade, along with a link to that specific post. Then, list out the Pokémon that he is offering in alphabetical order.

FFAs
The person in charged of Trainer Of The Week will handle this as well. While counting the number of battles, also make a separate note for the winners of each FFA reffed. Include the position (and thus, number of players in the FFA), member's name and Pokémon, referee in charged, and the Special Rule for that FFA.

Comics
You are expected to make a comic for the URPG Times each week. Due to the relative difficulty and time constraints, you can make a comic on an alternative week pattern. If there are multiple people in charged of this section, they can take turns making comics as well. As permanent workers of the newsletter, you will also receive a slightly higher pay than normal contributing members. This section is still subjected to removal if responses aren't good.

Articles/Reports
The people in charged of this section are expected to have a relatively 'okay' writing skills, with proper spelling and grammar. That doesn't mean for you to be a grammar nazi as well. As long as it is readable and presentable, you're good. You're expected to submit one or more article/report for each week, or alternative should you be unable to do it every week. Your articles/reports can range from all kind of URPG materials, ranging from a wide range of subjects like the history of URPG, the play style in URPG battling, what Pokémon to use, a writeup/article on a specific Pokémon or a type, etc.

The Buzz
This is basically what's happening around in the URPG community, except it will be based on the more private but still acceptable messages, such as on VMs or AIM Chats itself. You can include gossips on what's going on in URPG at the current moment, or even include quotes or short logs from AIM itself.

Featured Member/Gym Leader Interview Q&A
You're expected to complete an interview each week with an URPG member and a Gym Leader respectively. You don't have to do both, since they belong to different sections. I'm just combining it while explaining it since it's rather similar. The interview questions are up to you but you should remember to make the content relatively interesting, or amusing. This isn't required, but a general tip would be to complete it a 'roleplay' style. Look at Issue 3 if you need an example. You can be random, funny, amusing, or whatever that you can think of, just remember to stay on topic for the respective Member or Gym Leader interview.


Story Of The Week & Roleplayer Of The Week
Unlike the previous sections, you will not be expected to compile a spreadsheet data. You have to simply look through the stories or roleplays posted within the current week, and pick one that you think is the best. Best as in the most interesting, amusing, funny, excellent example, different perspective, unusual, etc. The bottom line is for you to pick one based on your opinion. You have to write a recommendation to it as well, explaining things like why did you pick it and why is it worth reading. Nothing too long, but it should cover all of the relevant information that's needed.

Please note that during some of the time, when the person in charged isn't available (which he should have informed me beforehand), I might ask for other people to help and they might not be even a Times Employee. I refer to those as part time contributors. Nothing important, just saying.

If you're starting to think about your URPG dollars; yes, you will get paid for your work. We can't possibly expect you to do so much for us and get nothing in return! Your pay will be decided by the Editor-In-Chief - you will be paid according to your sections (eg. good article/report write ups will definitely get paid more than other sections). Don't expect too much though - we can't possibly pay you 10k for submitting a comic, can we? :P

Ok, I am pleased to announce a new role for the URPG Times, and that is Quiz Master.

Quiz Master

The role is quiet simple, you are in charge of the URPG Times Quiz that comes out every month. You will create up about 20 questions, based on Pokemon and URPG, and submit them to one of the Chief Editor(s). Make sure you include a range of questions that are hard and somewhat easy. If you want a preview of previous URPG Quiz, look here and here.

Please remember when applying for the role of Quiz Master, you will not be able to give any hints, or take part in the Quiz. If I catch you supplying hints or giving people answers, you will be removed from the position of Quiz Master.


If there are a lot of people interested in the job, I will make it a temporary role, and once you have created a Quiz, I will let someone else take over.

That is all, enjoy.
