Argon Helpstaff Possibly To Te Revived
  Twohart, local Kamiwerewolf is in the process of organizing and taking applications for the revival of the Helpstaff Service. After a hiatus of almost a year, Twohart has suggested to the Wizstaff that with all the new players we have, it might be helpful to folks who are unfamiliar with SpinDizzy, or mucking in general to have folks they can call upon when needed.   This service, consisting of a group of regular player volunteers, offers assistance to folks in areas that don't always require Wizstaff abilities.  Building, MPI, MUF, Player Relations and such are all aspects of the muck that Helpstaffers are qualified to assist with. Although no one Helpstaffer will know all about every aspect of Helpstaff responsibilities, they can usually find someone who knows what they don't.  And if they can't solve a problem, get the answer or resolve an issue, or find someone who can, a Wiz can be consulted. The proposed Helpstaff  'code' can be read in full at http://rivendog.tripod.com/temp/helpstaff/Helpstaffer_Page.html

Although no official action has been taken, Twohart is asking folks who are interested in being on the Helpstaff to contact him.  Just send a qmail or page #mail to him and ask to be put on the list for consideration.  The Wizstaff will consider the proposal, and if they find the idea valid will let us know.

So, if you feel you can be helpful, contact Twohart, and perhaps you can join the Helpstaff!

Argon RP Meeting
  I missed attending Morticon's Role Play Meeting Friday due to Road Runner (My cable modem connection) being down, so I can only relate second hand news about it.  The attendees appeared to be folks that already enjoy RP, although a few 'newbies' were in attendance.  The entire log of the meeting is posted at:   http://www.ao.net/~rocko/ferret/rp_meet1.txt  Read it if you were unable to attend and draw your own conclusions.
Argon Weekly Survey
  Argon asked in this week's survey, "I'm doing a survey to be published in @Action News.  The question is, 'How did you hear about Spinizzy?'
Natasha says, "I heard about Spin Izzy from his older brother, Spin Ozzy."
"PatchO'Black mews, "Through Austin, I believe.
Terra chirps. "I was found here on the doorstep of a monestary. I grew up 4096 years later and here I was!"
Austin says, "I was invited in by Morticon, three weeks ago."
Flutterz blames Bob, Argon. =)
Drake thinks for a few minutes. "Well, I was on the trail of Interstellar Master Traders, Argon, and I detected a large spindizzy field and ... oh heck. I read the want ads, and there it was. :)"
Scruffy was clued in about Spindizzy by Flutterz. Thanks! *subtle exchange of currency*
Cye says, "I just found this place by accident."
Rose says, "I don't remember for sure, it was either Suri or Findra who told me about it."
Lilly says, "I heard about it from Rose."
Nimble saw a message about it on another MUCK and was curious ;>
Royce churrs, "Oh, well, I remember I was taking a month long break from the muck, and of course everything fell apart while I was gone.. During my break, I heard from Cassie that TFF had been destroyed, and that this one was started up. But it was still a couple of weeks before I came here, just because I was determined to stay away for a whole month.. Not that it made any difference, as within ten minutes I had settled back into my old rut."
910 chirps, "I was a regular on Dreamtime.
Gilead chirps, "I think Rose told me, but if it wasn't Rose, it was probably Natasha. Or maybe Austin."
Findra chirrrs softly, "It suddenly materialised on my computer? :)"
CalicoHeart mews, "I heard about it when it was still Toons Furr and Fluff from alt.fan.furry!"
Denise hmms.. can't really remember how she heard of this place.. had it in the Muck listing of her client for a LONG time.. just never decided to get a char here until a bit ago.
Rown says, "With my ears. :-p"
Reiter says, "Well, I heard about it a while ago, but only visited it when one of my old friends told me about it."
Rick says, "Rown told me about SpinDizzy."
Boki squalls, "Boki was invited!"
Royce heard there was going to be food.

@Action News Info Guidelines and Procedures for Submitting Articles
  Submitting a story or artwork for @Action News is easy!  Just send it to newspaper@spindizzy.org, or qmail or page Argon about it.

Most any type of story or article will be accepted.  Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair game. The things reported don't have to have actually happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of interaction that we have.  These are pretty broad guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
