"I believe that good journalism can make our world a better place." -Christiane Amanpour

What does a poorly paraphrased quote from a television host have to do with you? Almost nothing, really, but I needed something to open with, and I was able to find a somewhat-relevant article on the internet within a matter of minutes.

What does pertain to you, and our beloved wiki, is that we at The Ba Sing Se Times needs YOU to help us keep our community newsletter thriving! As a Deputy Editor, I've heard many-a-time from other users that they wish they could be on the newsletter staff and have their own articles. While it's great that many are eager to join the staff, what I can't stress enough is that anyone and everyone can write and submit an article to the BSST! Whenever you want, for any issue, you can be a Ba Sing Se Times contributor! If you have an opinion, some advice, need help, want to offer a service, or can form a series of coherent sentences, you should share your voice by writing up a piece pertaining to Avatar canon, the fanon portal, or Avatar Wiki itself. If you've got something to say, say it! Just say something before Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World give up on you.

BSST issues can't be completed or released unless they have a sufficient number of articles, so it is imperative that we achieve optimal community participation. No one wants to read a newsletter that only has a handful of contributors each edition, but it's a great thing to have a healthy rotation of new and old users alike with ideas to share!

If you submit an article by going here to the official Ba Sing Se Times submission portal, you'll be able to wear this neat badge of honor on your profile page by adding the template, {{User BSST}}:

This user is a writer for
The Ba Sing Se Times.

Now, who would give up an opportunity to have that snazzy user box on their page? No one in the right mind, that's for sure! And just think: all you have to do to earn that right is contribute an article!

So please, let's make our community as a wiki even more exciting with an active, and interactive, healthy newsletter in the form of The Ba Sing Se Times. You can contribute as early as... right now!

So get to writing, and we look forward to reading your submissions!
