Hello and thank you for your interest in becoming apart of The Black Vault News Crew...

Here is a basic idea of what The Black Vault News Crew is all about:

I want to get a team of individuals that will a) preferably, write article for The Black Vault on subjects/topics that are obvious interest to the clientele at The Black Vault. Or b) who will take articles from the millions of resources around the internet, and bring them to TheBlackVault.com using FAIR guidelines outlined below.

There are literally thousands of people a day to come to this site... so the exposure you will receive will be quite comparable to other sites of the similar niche, along with passing the word about the works you also bring to this site. Plus, you will be aiding in helping educate the masses in ways I can never explain.

So you know, TheBlackVault.com, according to Alexa.com, is ranked within the top 72,000 sites in the U.S. and within the top 314,000 in the entire world (as of October 7, 2012). Given the number of sites out there, that's pretty good as I am run by only myself, have zero advertising budget, and now have entered my 16th year of being online.

I am also looking for those interested in literally getting other works of published news to TheBlackVault.com. Under the U.S. Copyright Law, I believe whole-heartedly that the "fair use" clause applies to my site, wherein the information is used to educate the public, and is used for research by investigators visiting this site in a not-for-profit way.

This is done in two methods. 1) Taking news stories from other sources, and citing either the entire article, or a portion thereof, both ways with links to the original source. An example: TheExaminer.com publishes an article of interest. You take that article (or a portion thereof), copy and paste the contents to TheBlackVault.com, upload the photos/video, and cite the source. Here is an example: http://www.theblackvault.com/m/news/vie ... Jesus-Wife This article is from the NY Times... re-published in its entirety, and is sourced at the bottom. I believe this is fair use until I am told otherwise. If you were interested in doing this, a replication of this article exactly is highly preferred. You'll see the entire article; the author is linked to their page (not to get technical, but it opens in a new window. To do this... the "target" in the link window is "Open in a new window - _blank") and that's it. A great resource here... used under fair use... and is utilized by researchers every day.

Please note: I am also interested in those with a web camera, and are interested in becoming literally a online newscaster. I can bring your face, and your material, to THOUSANDS of people a day... so let me know!

If you are interested, to publish a news story (it does need my approval before it will show up) go to: http://www.theblackvault.com/m/news/bro ... r=add_news

Now the other way to publish to this site applies to the Case File Database, using news sources to help catalog cases of interest from around the globe. And let me tell you, there is no shortage. Every day, there are literally (from what I've seen) 5-10 maybe even more cases, that could be added. And that's a very conservative estimate. I just don't have the man power (again, it's just me) to add them all - and they should be.

An example of this is: http://www.theblackvault.com/m/events/v ... -Jerusalem

This was a article published on TheExaminer.com, wherein I cited the author (target is set to _blank so it opens in a new window); the article; and the source URL is at the bottom.

To submit a case file: http://www.theblackvault.com/m/events/b ... =add_event

There are quite a few categories for Case Files, and quite a few awesome features, so make sure you check them all out and see what interests you the most.

All factors above for sourcing I definitely need for the fair use clause... Now, some of this may seem confusing, but don't let it be. Submitting is the first step - I can help you through the rest of it to hit everything we need to make sure this is fair use and done appropriately. I can fix anything that may be missing and let you know where we might have missed something. Remember, any copyright violations they will come after me, not you, so I will make sure it's done right. Do not worry or hesitate. ANY help is a HUGE help to me!

There will be questions I am sure... and I can help you with that. I setup a forum for just this reason:

the-black-vault-news-crew-f43.html

I hope this helps to get you at least started. Thank you so much for wanting to take part... and I hope to see your submissions soon. I can't tell you hope much a help this is not only to me, but the literally quarter of a million people who visit TheBlackVault.com every month.

I look forward to it! I have quite a few people saying they want to contribute and post news articles (via the URLs above and not just on the message forums) but I haven't seen any submissions yet.

Excited to see some :)

Hey John,

As I am sure, you can tell I am still exploring the site and branching out. I have a tendency to kind of stay in one forum only, in most cases I use the General Topics Forum, and not only on this site but also other sites.

I have many varied interests, and am retired, but I love the idea of being able submit things for publication. Not sure when I will start. I've often been encouraged to start my own blog about things. The reasons are because I am opinionated, I read a lot of different "news" things, etc... and then will voice my opinions or type them in discussion forums. I am an avid outdoors man (fishing as evidenced by my user name) which diminishes the amount of time I can devote to this endeavor, so I have never started my blog. I will read the rules you have, but I have not yet read them, but would this kind of submission meet the rules? An example might be my views on evolution and religion. I am very spiritual, but not religious, there are reasons for this. Also, in the evolution issue, I absolutely believe in evolution, but I ask this, if Humans have evolved as far as we have through nature in such a short time, time as compared to the time Earth has existed, then how is it that the dinosaurs never evolved intelligence over 165 million years that they reportedly roamed the earth? Further there is a fish, it is the alligator gar, and its species is suggested to have existed for over 1 million years. I believe that is much longer than the Homosapien species, so how is it this fish is still so primitive while our species has evolved such mental complexities? This absolutely makes me believe that someone or something helped our species evolve. I personally think that a Supreme Being exists, but I am not sure it was that Supreme Being that changed the Human brain.

As I spend a lot of time reading online news... I refuse to get my news from the mainstream broadcast news channels, I will do my best to bring news articles back to your site.

It's a shame though that you have no advertising budget though, I could just see me fishing tournaments, small club tournaments, in cloths that advertise your site!!! LMAO!!

Thanks John,

Danny

PS, as for the web camera... I have a face for radio or typed internet only!!!

It's good to see so many new names on the board, and we are happy to have you here!

That said, I look forward to anything you might want to submit. You'll notice on the front page of http://www.theblackvault.com there are news articles of interest that I post. Here is a link to the News Archive: http://www.theblackvault.com/m/news/home/

You'll see the categories of interest on the left side. Although I am not trying to be a "breaking news" site, or something that would replace a large media conglomerate, what I am trying to do is archive articles of interest to The Black Vault audience. You'll see what is and what ISN'T there. Sometimes, I'll post news articles in the forum only, simply because they are more for discussion, rather than "news" on the site. It's hard to explain, but I think once you look at the difference between the two, you'll see it too.

I appreciate it, and look forward to anything you send in!
