Editors note Nyxxie

WELCOME to issue number 2 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

We hope you enjoyed the third week of Bootleggers round 6. A lot happened this week and between the new crews, first respectable bosses and players capturing more than 5 casinos at once, we just don't know where to start! Although we STILL lack crew takeovers, Nation and State Don killings and promotions, we are happy to report on smaller rank promotions, new crews and much more.

So what is there to look forward to as far as the Buzz is concerned? We have more weekly articles in the works and with the holidays rolling around, we'll have special treats for all of you to take part in to show your friends, lovers and even enemies just how much you care about (killing) them.

But what about this week? This week, we have our weekly articles such as "Weekly Flash" and "Bootleggers Statistics" for all you players who don't like devoting the time it takes to read an entire article, but want the information all the same. We also have our newest weekly article brought to you buy our two talented writers Frick and Sean. They bring forth to you a more detailed version of our beloved "Behind the Name" in a more indepth twist called "Player of the Week!"

Currently, the Buzz has a staff of twelve. We are always looking for more! If you think you have what it takes to be a writer of the Bootleggers Buzz and believe you can devote your time to serve the game in a way like no other, feel free to submit an application by scrolling down and clicking the second drop down menu, being sure to choose "Application." There, you will be prompted to write an article as yo would as an official Buzz writer about a recent Bootleggers event. Remember to mind your punctuation, grammar, form and spelling. Writing quality is very important to us and we will only allow the best of this game into our coveted forum. We want you, yes you! So type away and start sending those articles in!

If you don't want to devote week after week to the Buzz, there is another option for you. Anyone and everyone in this game can forward a FREELANCE ARTICLE to the Buzz. You do not have to be a writer of the Buzz to do so. Simply submit the already written article by scrolling down and clicking the second drop down menu, being sure to choose "Freelance Article." We will add anything (within reason and editor discretion) to the Buzz. This includes, but not limited to, your own opinions about a certain event, promotion of Staff, action of Staff or new feature. We will not edit you. If you can bring forth your opinion in a mature manner, you will be assured to see your article in the upcoming issue prior to submitting.

Now, onwards to the articles. I hope you enjoy this second issue and find it to be above average to our usual. Remember to rate and comment on every article you read.

Thanks and happy gaming!
