    I'm kind of interested in becoming a reporter, but at a later date. Can someone tell me the criteria to achieving the status of Reporter? Or do you have to go to a physical place to have an interview, etc.

    The site says:

    I assume you need to be very active in the news section, follow all the rules and be an active members, you'll prolly also need to be suggested by a few people or then some voting of sorts would be done, oh, and you'll need to be somewhat recognized and have some sort of fame around here I guess, since most staff were well known members before arising in ranks. xO

    I kinda figured I'd have to be more popular/stick around more. So is it just like mods, that they just ask you and bam?

    If you have potential Costello invites you to Hong Kong and personally interviews you. He wants to check your news reporting performance and how good you are with a firearm.

    Wait so I didn't need to be strip-searched?

    I knew Raulpica was laughing for a reason...

    Ace Gunmen's erect penis is the ninth biggest cause of disability across the globe. FACT.
