Or perhaps looking for two.
Although Inside Orkut shares news, views and (in the future) taboos of Orkut society, it is fairly impossible for this author to cover everything going on within Orkut, as the community covers virtually every topic under the sun.
If anyone would like to join as a contributor (i.e. writer of this site) there are several stipulations that a user must meet (basically items this author is looking for):
- Must be a blogger: Whether you use Blogger, Typepad, Xanga, etc. you must not only use a blog but already post frequently on one (at least six months old). If one is unsure what a blog is, this offer is probably not for that individual.
- Must be a member of Orkut: Lets rephrase that- must be a frequent user of Orkut. Newbie's will be considered, but this author is looking for those who know their way around the community.
Must be connected to at least 50 other individuals and be apart of 10 communities.
- Must have an Ad Sense account: In order to "compensate" extra contributors, this author is willing to give up one of several Ad Sense spots on the site for you to place your own code upon.
Some may prefer Yahoo! Publishing, which is fine, but since Orkut is a Google product it is best to keep things "in the family" (in essence, get Google Ad Sense!).
Although these cover the basics, this author is looking for people who are into other topics such as fashion, cars and other oddities that make Orkut great. Comment here or (for the shy) on this authors scrapbook with your blog site, plus your Orkut profile and indicate if you use Ad Sense as well.
Update: Because Inside Orkut will be installing categories, it is recommended that a person also be "slightly" familiar with Greasemonkey and Del.icio.us as well (this will not affect submissions).
If unfamiliar, I can always give a "crash course" on how to use these new tools for this weblog. ;)
In order for the Universal Translator to work, the author needs to be familiar in English (so if you speak Portuguese or Spanish, it can translate from those languages into the users native tongue).
Ad Sense is optional, but strongly encouraged (so get it) and Del.icio.us is also optional as well as I can always go back and categorize your post later on.
Update (8/31/06): (No extra authors are needed thanks to the new Blogger Beta. Thanks!
