Topic Summary

Posted 01 June 2013 - 07:48 AM

The Centennial Herald is the school's newspaper. As such, it contains all sorts of columns, school announcements as well as personal announcements, articles, reviews, and gossip. It's the go-to for any information pertaining to the school, as the students have a pretty firm grip on the newspaper, and the administration rarely reads it.


Any student can write a column, article, or review-- keep in mind that columns are weekly or monthly written and usually pertain to one subject in particular, while an article or review is a one-time thing. These column subjects can be on anything from recipes to books, though be sure to check the claims list before creating your column!


To create a column, simply start up a post with your character and reply to it weekly, monthly, or however often you see fit. To create an article, simply start up a new post with each article you make-- the same goes for individual reviews.


The school newspaper also contains school announcements and personal announcements-- school announcements are usually made by the faculty only, but personal announcements can cover anything from an engagement to a party coming up. To create a new personal announcement, simply create a new topic-- if it's to announce a party or event, leave a link to the topic! This is an awesome way to get a group thread started.


The best part about the Centennial Herald, though, is the gossip section. There's a thread pinned in this forum where you can post (anonymously!) and spread IC information about another character. This information can be true or false-- just remember that you log out of your account and post as a GUEST to the gossip topic. Also remember that all IC posts have IC consequences, so please use this topic wisely! Anything read in the anonymous gossip column can be used by anyone in-character, so please refrain from targeting characters unfairly.


Here's the column subject claims list! Simply post to this topic with your character's subject and name, and we'll add you in!:
