I would like to take the position of CEO of Weazel news. I realize it is unpaid work, but its fun for me. I enjoy making up random "news updates" as well as commenting on the goings on around town.
Moogle has requested that i be more active in the News forum, but honestly that isn't why i want this. I don't want to post in forums, hours after somethings happened, I want to be there and make it the most over the top, fun experience for those reading the feed. Sure, after a big heist where i'v had an opportunity to take some photos and there's a lot to cover, id be glad to post it in there. However, for me the position of Weazel News CEO is less about forum posting and more about In-game player engagement, ranging from making something like a one man robbery into something that makes the player feel like their robbery is important, to being paid to "report" on supposed activities of rivals with the purpose of causing a fight.
The news would be used as a tool to help players who are on their own feel noticed, and those in groups induce RP situations. Also stupid things for when twitter gets quiet or overly aggressive with each other and needs to calm down.
There are no members other than me, because multiple news posters in twitter would be at best, annoying. I dont want anything, there are some things id LIKE, so i can keep my distance from crime scenes while i report on them, but they arent musts (stuff like binoculars or a functional camera with zoom. Someone said a weazel news helicopter but thats too much).
MY interactions will be mostly passive, observations on the goings on around town, but i will also be using the news to incite fighting and stir the pot on occasion because who doesnt love a good old fashioned gang war. Id happily take reporting ideas from the civilian population but ultimately, the news will be what i believe to be interesting, not the minutia of someones life. I will be doing my best to stay out of fighting but the life of a reporter can sometimes turn deadly, as reporting on a gang activity is likely to incur some backlash, but thats an acceptable risk.
Stuff that id report on would be, for example:
(STORY) Police seen chasing wildlife through the streets of Los Santos, as a wild Cougar rampages through the streets. Gunfire lights up the night as wildlife handlers and LSPD unite to capture and release the deadly predator. (There was an Admin playing as animals and the cops were going ham tackling and shooting them prior to reset)
(ADVERTISEMENT) Life got you down? Neighbors making life difficult? Are you out of targets to shoot on the farm? Pisswasser is here to quench your thirst and slake your bloodlust! Be it beating your neighbors over a noise dispute or unloading on an unsuspecting empty at the end of a rough day. "Pisswasser: Get so blasted, you just dont give a shit"
(Lull in twitter filler) LSPD held a community outreach program today at Grove street, complete with BBQ and career coach for the youths of the area. Career councilor Chandler had this to say on the event: "It was going fine until one of the officers tried to do a balloon trick and, amidst tying up an inflated animal, accidently made a gang sign". The casualties are reported to be in the low 50's.
I'm not one for grinding out the jobs, I have no interest in being a gang member, but i CAN report absolute garbage and make it sound interesting. And thats what id like to do.
Ingame Character: Frodo Baggins (considering getting a name change but DAMN thats expensive).
Currently job hopping, one arrest for GTA. Looking to find my place
