12 Coldplayers of Christmas wanted! (reviewers for the months of 2011) ## list updated 8th December

Recommended Posts

Fancy putting your hand to writing a review of Coldplay/Coldplaying in a specific month of 2011?

 

Just some of the things that happened this year (and much much more not listed!):

 

A complete summer of festivals (spread over many months) incl. Glastonbury!

First single: Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall + video

Release of ETIAW EP feat. Major Minus and Moving To Mars

Leak of Mylo Xyloto

Release of Mylo Xyloto

South African mini tour

Paradise 2nd single and video

ColdplayingTV

BTDMAs!

MX Promo gigs incl. AMEX Unstaged

Start of the Mylo Xylotour

SERVER MOVE!! ( :) )

 

The 12 days of Coldplay/Coldplaying Christmas went well last year so if there was enough interest in it this time round then 12 volunteers could do one month each, posting their review on successive days like we did in 2008 and 2009, 2010 and culminating in a full 2011 review by the end of the calendar year. You can apply on your own or as a pair (or even more!)

 

If you are interested, reply to the thread below with your preference for month :D

 

Here are the reviews from 2008 and reviews of 2009 and also reviews of 2010 to give you a feel of how the reviews work (use of coldplaying new articles, youtube vids, pics etc to build up a story, and then a monthly poll)

 

The different styles of reviews would be something to look forward to reading!

 

If it helps anyone to gather ideas, its east to use the main site search function, slowly working forward to page 1 (the latest news).

 

Here's where 2011 begins: http://www.coldplaying.com/index.php?name=Search&action=search&active_stories=1&stories_author=&stories_cat%5B%5D=&bool=OR&startnum=381&total=7332

 

Each month reviewer should start with the 1st day of their month using the main site search. e.g. May 2011 would be at http://www.coldplaying.com/index.php?name=Search&action=search&active_stories=1&stories_author=&stories_cat%5B%5D=&bool=OR&startnum=291&total=7332

 

You can also use: http://www.wikicoldplay.com

and: Coldplaying Google search at http://www.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-0483587505365462%3Ajmi8v0ijdq5&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=&sa=Search#gsc.tab=0

and of course the Coldplaying forum search at http://www.coldplaying.com/forum/search.php

 

Most of the main site news articles have within them links to the forum threads where all the discussion, youtube vides, pictures, wikicoldplay references etc are. There should be around 5-10 decent different news stories per month and then created a poll asking which was your favourite. You may decide to do it differently, its your choice as the reviewer. Whatever you decide there is a wealth of information at your disposal! :)

 

Posting dates (into the forthcoming Reviews of 2011 sub-forum):

 

January - 19th December 2011

February - 20th December 2011

March - 21st December 2011

April - 22nd December 2011

May - 23rd December 2011

June - 24th December 2011

July - 26th December 2011

September - 28th December 2011

October - 29th December 2011

This was a ton of fun last year, but I'm afraid I haven't really been following closely enough this year to review. :sad:

Quite enjoyed doing these reviews. Would have loved to have done June but I did that last year so I think I'd be quite happy with May if no one else is wanting it!

 

edit: Darn! Didn't know Alien Radio had asked first!

 

Would happily collaborate with anyone though.

January, February, March, April...don't mind either.

 

You can do May if you want... :)

I don't have so much time next week anyway.

 

So it's yours if you still want it. ;)

I'm absolutely fine with you doing it! ;) If you don't want it just notify me.

This sounds like an awesome idea! I really only started following Coldplay news closely in June, but I'll consider doing one of the earlier months if no one else is up to it :)

If there's still some months left I'll do any month :wacky:

 

It was much fun last year!

 

Maybe I'll do April again if no one's called it :nice:

:curtain:

 

Hmmm. I haven't really followed a whole lot, but this seems pretty interesting, and I've never tried something like this before. I'd be willing to take a month that nobody else wants, as the month of the year honestly doesn't matter to me. Also, I'm up for collaborating with someone, if someone wants to do that. :smiley:

I would LOVE to do June, but if that's taken, I would like to do any month! As long as i'm on there!

 

EDIT: I can't be bothered actually.

If no one wants January then I'm more than happy to do so. Alien Radio - if you want to do May on your own that would be fine.
