Editors note Mika

WELCOME to issue number FOUR of the Bootleggers Buzz!

“No BL Buzz today?” was what I read in the forums, prior to writing the Editors Note for this issue. Players hoping to sue or imprison us, it is all very scary to say the least. I should also add that us being in jail would actually result in a no show of at least one issue. No Buzz? Of course not! We are always there on Sunday, this one is certainly no exception; the fact that you are reading this right now proves that very point. We managed to outrun both the cops and bullets, rendering us able to release this issue.

More bullets were sent flying this week and crews are being sold and, quite obviously, bought. It appears as if Bootleggers is slowly waking up and getting active after the game was reset not too long ago. I can only say that our writers just love to see all of that happening. Thinking of subjects to cover is of course one of their duties, and most of them do it quite well. Nevertheless there is not anything that beats being able to cover a subject that contains more action and concerns bullets and Bootleggers deaths.

I admit, the demise of others makes our stories, but this is a game, so who cares, right? Apart from the deaths, we are also focusing on crews this week. Not only the selling and buying of them, which actually happened quite a lot, but also on which ones are popular compared to others. Yes, you read that right. The issue of this week marks the release of the 'Favorite Bootleggers Crew All Time!' contest. All time, or up till now, your choice! Either way, after quite some weeks of voting, our very own XVI will enlighten everyone and disclose which crew won the contest.

Currently, the Buzz has a staff of fifteen. 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.

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. 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 is 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.

As for the current applicants, we hope to inform them of the outcome of their application somewhere this coming week, so keep an eye on your inbox if you applied because a BootMail from the Buzz is bound to show up! To conclude, I of course want to remind you of our weekly articles, 'Player of the Week,' 'The Weekly Flash' and 'Bootleggers Game Statistics' that are also featured in the Buzz.

That is all. Enjoy the read, and please rate and comment to help our writers and to voice your opinion on the articles. I hope to see all of you next week. Until then, take care and stay safe.
