OSNews, Generic OSes Regular OSNews readers will notice we've had a drop-off in original articles over the past year or so. That's something we'd like to change. We'd like to encourage OSNews readers to submit articles by staging a contest wherein the best articles will be judged by OSNews staff and readers, and the winners will receive valuable prizes. All submitted articles that meet our submission guidelines will be published at OSNews. In addition to wanting articles to publish, this is also a talent search of sorts. We're hoping to identify talented OSNews readers to fill the ranks as editors and regular contributors. If you think you have the skills and desire to be a part of OSNews, please enter the contest, or just contact us. Read more for details on the contest.

Some people would argue that asking for donations to a for-profit entity is pretty stupid.


So, you're calling Adam, Eugenia, and myself stupid. We all donate our free time to OSNews. I can only speak for myself, but I donate a few hours a day to OSNews, besides my university study, job, and social life. I don't ask anything in return for that because I enjoy doing it, and because the subject matter interests me. OSNews allows me to learn more about computing and journalism - the two terms that will play a central role in my future.

The fact you read that what you call stupid is... Well, weird.

If you're "in the red", post about it and I'm sure no one would have a problem donating original articles.


It doesn't seem to bother the countless people who already submitted their originals this weekend - about 5 or 6.
