We've got positions open! Help your favorite PlayStation site today! Yes... I'm talking about PSBeyond.com! Those who apply and are accepted in, will have completely reserved seats for the future sister websites (upcoming XBox and Nintendo sites) as well!!
We need someone with the writing skills of Bruce Lee! ... Okay not like him but we need writing skills! What does that mean? Well, post news, but if you can, spice it up a bit to sound personal, but still 100% factual. People can always read news else were, it is the personalities that are rare!
If you'd like to become one of the few (yet very proud!) News contributors-erm Reporters, feel free to post after this with a sample of your work (posting on current or past news for sample). Give a zing! Remember, we'll start paying soon for each news article, and might just slip some extra cash for great quality Also, use FireFox if you can, with its great spell checker!
Think you know it all about an upcoming game? Have you just finished a game so uplifting or horrid that you've just gotta voice your full experience!? Well, we'll help you expression what you've got locked in side! Sign up to be a Previews and/or Review writer with some of the great, such as Adam and PStars! The more the merrier, and the more the better for all!
Heck, if it is just too awesome, we'll make it a feature (you know, the big picture with teaser text?) so the world will know you're the best! But what better than creditability and showing off than getting paid? Yep, be creative with your reviews and we'll give some spending cash for you to do, aside from regular commission! (payouts are coming in due time, but all contributions are tracked and tallied)
This has happened before. You get so excited that you just can't hold yourself back from your crazy typing speeds! I know, I've been there, it's just too much awesome that your fingers go into hyper drive! Well, sometimes mistakes just occur and for one reason or another, we are blind to the errors of which we type. But no fear! Content Editor is here to save the day!
As a content editor, your job is to ensure no English teachers are sobbing at the wreck that happens to be in a news article, preview, or review; by correcting the tragic grammar and spelling errors of overly excited writer's work. They will love you, as well as we will love you... for all time...
Movies! Videos! Motion Picture! Pictures with motion! You know what I mean. If you just love to find those high quality videos, well, why not share your high roller collection with us as well? Those in this department would hunt across the great plains of the interwebs, seeking out the weak and band-free videos of multiple game titles and cage them at PSB! Well, in technical terms, one finds a quality, unmarked video and decides to upload it to PSB, because they're just that awesome!
Wait! Wait wait wait! I forgot something! Motion is cool, but we can always use those wicked screen shots! Yes, not only can you be a video champion, but you can gain honors in screenshot uploading! It's as easy as uploading a zip file... Oh wait, it is! All you do is collect unbranded, clean screen shots, place them in a ZIP, and the uploader will take care of everything for you! Doesn't that sound too fun to resist!? It better...
But wait! You want more than one?
ARE YOU CRAZY!? Cause if you are, then we love you even more! You may sign up for one or more of these jobs. Either way, we keep track of it all, so we can give you a hug for each submission (and a little something more if you play your cards right with creativity! ). That's right...
However, the greatest reward is the fact you're making a difference as well as gloating with 100% granted permission! Leave a post here if you're just about to have a heart attack! Why else am I here?
To be professional: *ahem* Thank you all for taking the time to read this. We highly appreciate any and all consideration to our requests and hope to do business with you soon!
(( Use this insane announcement of mine as an example of a "zing" for content related positions, but maybe not as creepy!! ))

+ THIS IS FOR SERIOUS COMMITMENTS ONLY!
+ You may review one or more games, but must stay to your word.

Think You Can Do It? - Well then post a reply with...
Requested Game(s): (list all the games you want to preview/review)
Why I want This Job: (a paragraph at least, please)
Experience/Previous Work (optional):
I Agree with Rules and can start:
There isn't much, but there is some guidelines/rules/punishments for actions when posting reviews. the best thing to stay safe is to just do as your title says. Post original work (for this position's sake I mean).
Plagiarism - ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
Plagiarism is a SERIOUS aspect that is looked at constantly by the Managers and reportable by staff (with investigations of course). If found convicted to such, the following could happen.
First Warning - Watched
You will be warned and placed on a list to be watched for any new submissions you make, if you are first found of the issue. Any work found to be of violation will be removed as well as their pay value addition of your pay total.
Second Warning - Dismissal of Everything
You will removed from the staff position and will NOT RECEIVE ANY COMMISSION! Yes, that means your whole payment value for this position will be removed, and you will not receive any payment. Even if you posted a original work before the violation or pay period (or both).
You might also be in risk of debit on your account, however that rarely will happen (varies on intensity of violation). Being in debt means you will own your next commission to PSB, thus not get credit for that commission for your pay period.
Please Use Your Best Ability
I believe Dave wouldn't have a problem paying extra for extra effort in submissions. So please try to give your full effort.
This list might not be completely accurate at any time. If a fair amount of time has passed and still the list is inaccurate, please notify Derek (recommended) or Dave.
