Should the pay rate be $0.04 or 0.04 dollars per word ($40 per article)?

As written it is 0.04 cents an article. 0.04 cents = 4/10th of a penny = $0.40.

Something that would be very helpful would be links into the video stream for certain key moments from the episode.

Preferably with post-editing to add the equivalent links for the Youtube version once it goes live the following Monday.
 



Welcome to the fun world of deadlines. :)
I imagine the ideal candidate would be a Hawaiian, who is able to watch the show from 5-9pm and then has a couple hours to leisurely and eloquently finish their write-up before bed. ;)

I am tempted to apply. However, as a MSTer who already stays up 60-90 minutes past my usual bedtime to finish the show, I imagine the final few paragraphs will most resemble something composed by a face rolling back and forth over a keyboard.

Ah, no problem. I can't get it done by morning/afternoon EST and still be a functioning adult.

I really considered it, but living in the EST, that's 1-2 AM on top of having work the next morning at 8AM.

Good luck to those of you applying!
 




Hopefully the article comes out Friday Night. I would hate to be the person who finished an episode at midnight, has work in the morning, and still needs to write a clever article.
