Editors note NVIDIAldarion

Hello and welcome to issue #57 of the Bootleggers Buzz as well as my first editor notes ever. I am very delighted to continue the work others did before me and I am looking forward to have a great time as editor of the Bootleggers Buzz.

Kicking off with a big event in the beginning of the week when Sean decided to quit Bootleggers meaning he gave up his position as Help Desk Operator as well as his position as Buzz editor. We had an interview with Sean, which summarizes why he decided to leave. There is also an interview with ‘you-know-who’, Sean’s replacement as Buzz editor. Pretty boring guy, imo.

Lots of action this week, as we witnessed (one of) the biggest sprees in the history of Bootleggers, which also caused some controversy after some of the shooters were banned. Five crews united to kill an incredible amount of people. Check out Poison’s very last-minute article on this to find out what exactly happened! In the beginning of the week, several people insided Event Horizon but the crew managed to return in no-time. Marlon covered it all in his article. Finally, we also have a column from Poison that tells about his return to the Bootleggers Buzz.

We are also introducing a weekly competition that allows you to win a small price. Three random people will be awarded with a small price. Perhaps it offers you a nice opportunity to win back some lost cash.

Next week, in issue #58 we’ll be opening the nominations for the Buzz Awards 2010. Unlike other years, you will now be able to nominate people in certain categories (such as ‘Best overall Crew’) and two weeks after that voting for the final winner will commence. Depending on the category, we will present a number of people/crews from which you can select the best one. However, before we start with that people will have to be nominated, more information on that in the next issue!

Last but not least, we are looking for new writers. Mika has written an article about what you should do if you want to join the Buzz. It is a great guide and it tells you what you need (to do) to write an (application) article for the Bootleggers Buzz. If you like writing but you’re not sure whether you want to be a permanent writer or not, you can always submit freelance articles at the bottom of this page.

That’s it for my first editor notes ever. Enjoy the read!
