SED Press Release Morticon a lizard!
Next Story
         Morticon, leader of SED, was unexpectedly turned into a four inch chameleon (Like the kind you find in Florida).  While he refused to comment on how this situation occurred or how long it may last, Morticon did say that "You should look where your walking.  Stepping on me is NOT a good idea.  For all you lizard-eaters out there, if you decide to eat me my evil soul will posses yours and control your body.  Just because I'm a small lizard doesn't make me any less evil."
Newswire Morticon cuter then apathetic badger!
Next Story
         Morticon, local evil wallaby, was pronounced cuter than apathetic badgers by Coldfyre, local coonfoxy with around 100 tails.  "So basically Morticon is cuter than some nameless apathetic badger.  But not necessarily Maxl, who is a cute, unapathetic badger," sums up Coldfyre.
Newswire Spindizzy's Resident Crazy Mink Found!
Next Story
         Terra, the resident not-quite-there-minky, has been found and is reportedly alive and well. After a disappearance for several days, possibly weeks, she has been spotted frequently enough to be considered present. She was unavailable for comment at the time of publication, but did mention something about 'Technical Support', but it was passed off as one of her less than coherent moments.
         The last furs to see her, Kendra and Morticon, were also unavailable for comment on Terra's recent reappearance. Kendra, local Kitsune, seems to have a magnetism for Terra.  The mink will often be seen curled around Kendra's shoulders, arms, or legs in a ritual of something Kendra calls 'lurving'. It is unclear what exactly 'lurving' is at this time.

         The mink was spotted, infrequently, in the Rose Garden, Morticon's Lab, and even in Kendra's sack which just goes to prove that she really is insane. Morticon's comments on this bizarre behavior were unavailable at this time. Terra has become scarce again, but has been spotted from time to time roaming the Spindizzy as if in search of something.
         Strange books with pictures of minks biting their tails have periodically been discovered in odd locations and usually do not remain there for long. It is unclear what these books are for or what they do, but a recent short explanation by Terra indicates that they may have some sort of transportation significance.
         Further news will be forthcoming.
@Action News Article guidelines and procedures changed!
         The guidelines for writing articles and submitting them have changed.  Please check the bottom of the newspaper to see the changes.  The rules and procedures have gotten more lenient in the hopes of attracting more writers and articles.  So, don't be afraid!  Send in your article today!
Info Guidelines and Procedure for Submitting Articles
>> Procedure for submitting an article:

 *  The newspaper building is located at Role Play Central (rpc).  When you
enter the building you will see a bulletin board.

 *  Go ahead and 'write' your story.  If you decide you don't want to write
one, hit .abort and forget about it.  Otherwise page 'newspaper' alerting
us that you wrote one when you finish pasting it in.

 *  An alternative to this is to page #mail newspaper with your story OR
email it to newspaper@spindizzy.org

 * We will edit it and tell you where you can look at it to make sure it wasn't mangled.  You can then p #mail the editor involved saying that it is ok.  Otherwise, suggest changes that should be made. If you trust the editors feel free to put something to the effect that you pre-approve the editing in your rough draft.

 * That's it!  It'll appear in the paper!

>> Guidelines for writing articles:

When writing articles for the paper...

 * Try and do some proofreading before submission.  That means spell check!
However, if you're no good at that sort of stuff, just send it as-is and the
editors will try their best.

 * No articles whose sole purpose is to flame someone.  You can use the SpinDizzy BB for
that ;)

 * Please strive for accuracy.  If they have time, the editors may check up on some of the quotes and perhaps the basic facts of the article.  Otherwise, it is assumed you did your best to write an accurate article.  If this is abused and inaccurate things are complained about, stricter rules may be put in place.

* Submitting your article anytime on Friday evening through the normal publishing date (Saturday night) will usually waive your right to review the edited version because of time constraints.  You will be contacted and informed but if you cannot get on before the publishing deadline to check your article it will be published regardless UNLESS you specify otherwise.

 * The editors' decisions are final.  This is not a wiz ran paper so do not
complain to them.  We can be reached by paging 'newspaper'.

 * Just about anything is published, so be creative!  It can be IC views on
RL topics, RPs that occurred around the MUCK, or most other things you can
think of.  You have creative license when it comes to documenting RPs, so
feel free to expound on the action, etc.  If you aren't sure if a story is
acceptable, page 'newspaper' and find out! :)

 * The AUP applies, so keep language and content acceptable.
