Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue #118 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

This week seemed to become a boring one and as the days progressed our writers began to come up with subjects for their boring week articles. Some of them were very happy when bullets did fly in the end of this week, giving them the opportunity to write an action filled article. As a result of this week's boring start, our writers have also written several articles we, as team, call boring week articles.

Due to those articles, we are still able to deliver you with an informative and full Buzz. In this week's issue we will be taking a look at both the Buzz and the BootCast, as well as on all game features. In addition, our writers also interviewed our two newest Moderators and our three new Help Desk Operators to find out how they liked their first two weeks on the job.

Apart from these articles, we also have several reports on the action filled things that happened this week. The action mostly came from the land of crews, as we saw the return of The Notorious Gangsters, had to witness how Save The Whales insided The Corleones and noticed how The Black Birds came under attack due to a casino dispute.

As always, we have our weekly segments such as 'Behind the Name' and 'A Year Back' ready for you. 'The Weekly Flash' is in this issue as well after having been absent for a week. We are sad that we cannot present you with 'Telling It Like It Is', however that article will be there again next week.

We hope that you will enjoy the articles our writers came up with, and would like to remind you that those articles can also inspire you to come up with an article of your own. As is said in one of this week's articles, you don't have to be a professional writer to submit one. So get your writing head and write that freelance article!

In relation to that, we still welcome new writers with open arms. If you love to write and like to get to the bottom of things that happen on Bootleggers than you might be interested in becoming a Buzz writer. Read the reprinted version of 'So You Think You Can Write?' in Issue 97 and get your keyboard going. Submit your sample article via the 'Application' option in the drop menu and give us a week to get back to you. We love new colleagues, so we will make sure not to forget you!

As always, enjoy this week's read and stay safe.
Take care and see you all next week!
