Eventually I would like to see comm_news replace the regular news journal in popularity because it will be dealing with everything that goes on in LJ land, not just with the current status of the servers or what problems are being fixed when.
But that would mean that I need reporters. Yes, I need dedicated people working to bring me news! It's actually very simple; tell me that you want to help, I'll let you post, and you post away!
But I won't stop there. Do you want to write an editorial regarding LiveJournal? Do you want to announce your latest local shin-dig to all of LJ land, hoping to find more people in your area? Community Leaders! Do you want to let people know what's happening in your community from time to time and give us the play by play?
Basically, if you request access to post to comm_news, and give a fairly decent reason of why you want to do so, then just e-mail me and I will let you!
All the reporters, all the journalists, anyone who can keep an eye out for the stuff ALL of LiveJournal should know about, I need your help! I can't do this alone!
