Articles wanted

I am very serious when I say I am looking for articles. Reviews, opinions, and experiences WANTED. If you have something to say, I am interested as long as it does not contain hate or cub porn it is more than welcomed. I still see posts on Twitter on people saying still despite issues Dogpatch Press has they still want to see their articles posted there. Unlike Dogpatch Press, My forum is open, I rarely block anyone and I am willing to make my Twitter Block List Public. I have never been caught up in anything that could get me arrested and I fully admit posting things in the past I did not have a clue about. Yes, that was dumb and I fully admit I was dumb. Unlike Dogpatch Press, I reply to messages sent to me, it may take me a while but really I do reply and am looking for STUFF to post here.

I promise anything I approve will be posted unedited. Meaning unless you specifically want me to correct any spelling or grammar mistake it goes up as you sent to me.

If I get enough submissions I might even offer a prize to the best piece but we will have to see.

Send your submissions here ahmarwolf [at] mail dot com

(I wrote my email address that way to fool spambots.)

Unfortunately your reputation is in tatters, and my pet project which "borrowed" your name never got any traction because of it.
Here's some advice:
Get off social media, its dangerous. If I was a religious follower I'd call it the spawn of Satan.
I don't have any social media for this key reason that its dangerous and too much of it is for instant gratification seeking milenial special snowflakes who take everything out of context

I know self-promotion is necessary to get clicks and stuff but something feels wrong about the way you're doing it here in a comments section in a way that's completely unrelated to the topic, which isn't even a topic but an announcement giving credit to contributors, when you're not a contributor of anything but shameless self-promotion. But I said, okay, I'll bite, I checked out your site and um, it's not a lot of content. Which would explain why you're looking for writers. I don't know what you did to ruin your rep like Sonikku said but this isn't a good way to go about repairing it if that's what you're trying to do.

You seem a little confused. This is a monthly collection of Flayrah's "newsbytes"; one-line, link-based pointers to news of interest elsewhere (which we prefer over rewriting the news here, as that seems largely wasted effort).

Posting them here is for archive purposes (the chat itself has limited scrollback), gives readers a chance to comment, and to see them if they missed them the first time around. Submitters are noted in the lede as the collection itself can only list at most one author, but many people submit newsbytes over any particular month; it's credit for the pointers, no more, no less.

I think you might be a little confused, there, GR.

BlackDog333 seems to be replying to Ahmar's folded comment up top; it just managed to thread wrong. I don't think he's complaining about the Newsbytes archive (which fun fact, actually kind of was a bit of self-promotion on my part when it started!).

Touche! Yeah, since he didn't actually reply to Ahmar I figured he was replying to the newsbyte archive itself.

Yeah, that's what's up, I just derped is all.
