Diplomacy World Staff Openings

Hi folks!

Right now I am looking for new blood to fill the vacancies in the Diplomacy World Staff ranks.

Effectively, these are the open spots at the moment (a few have people in them but they’re just waiting for someone else to come forward):

Co-Editor: Vacant!!

Strategy & Tactics Editor: Vacant!!

Variant Editor: Vacant!!

Interview Editor: Vacant!!

Club and Tournament Editor: Vacant!!

Technology Editor: Vacant!!
Original Artwork Vacant!!

The positions themselves (except Co-Editor and Artwork) basically mean you will commit to a minimum of three articles per year in your area of focus, and that you will also work to solicit articles from other Diplomacy players.

If you’re interested in any of these and would like more information, or details on Co-Editor or Artwork, please email me at

I hope to hear from a few of you in the coming weeks!

I have started building a Diplomacy World Email Mailing List through the service Mailchimp. You can sign up for that mailing list by clicking the following link:

The reason for starting this Mailchimp list is as follows:

1. Enabling direct contact with DW readers where they can add or drop themselves with ease.

2. My current email mailing list is a mess of 8 “groups” that I have to mail BCC two per day or I get tagged as “spam” by Yahoo and I can’t use Outlook for a day with that account. I need to get rid of that method and replace it with Mailchimp so I can easily communicate news, deadline reminders, and release announcements. (And, potentially, build it into hobby news announcements someday, but maybe not).

3. The oldest and most consistent method of communication is the old Yahoo group. With that being sold, there’s no telling when it will disappear.

If you get your DW news from Facebook and I never use this list for other stuff, you don’t NEED too join. All optional. Unless FB slowly dies off.
