I'm delighted to announce that Raurosia will be joining the Issues Editing team! His issue submission - Mamma @@NATION@@, Let Me Go - was a favourite of the judges, and his subsequent preliminary issue editing (yet to be put in game, but watch out!) impressed us. We're very happy he can come aboard.

Everybody say haaaaaaaaaaay.

Haaaaaay!
Congratulations Raurosia!!

I look forward to seeing what issues you edit.
This nation is modeled on being my absolute worst dystopia imaginable. In no way do the Annihilators reflect my opinions, in fact I am totally against almost every single policy they enact.
I support insanely high tax rates, do you?

I honestly really like to write issues.

Yes. I'm still in contact with a second potential editor.

Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness.

So, I see this thread was active as late as yesterday; I have FINALLY been able to work out what my ideas are for a new issue. (Yes, I am incredibly slow at coalescing ideas.) I've seen the "Have an idea for an issue?" thing appear at the bottom of some of my issues (I think recently, but as we've established, my brain kinda sucks), and so now that I've hammered out the major points, I thought I'd see if new issues were being accepted. It's basically about asexuality and anti-sexuality (which is really completely different). The only issue I've come across that has asexuality in it conflates the two things, so I thought maybe an issue that separated them would be cool. Anyway, ciao!

There is in fact a third (well, second, but not the one Luna is talking about) - Golgothastan is now an Issues Editor. He's wowed us with a slew of excellent issues of late, so we've added him to the team to stop him putting us to shame.

I suspected that he might be on the short-list.

Congratulations, Golgothastan!

I wrote mine, pretty good for my standards, a bit wordy but generally a good concept. The problem? Another issue already existed for my submission :palm:. Read the list, Val, read the list.

Bumping the thread to note that it's been de-stickied, and that the final stage of the Contest is over - we won't be adding further Editors based on submissions. There was a third potential Editor we were considering, but they haven't been able to maintain sufficient activity to warrant adding them to the team at the moment.
