News is what you saw and heard. It can be anything, a car crash, a tree falling in your neighbourhood, a protest, a political campaign, your class graduation, a company event, pretty much anything you consider newsworthy is news.

As of January 20th 2021, these are the guidelines for news posts - News is what you saw and heard. Do not report gossip and rumors as news. Limit to facts. Do not add past information, flowery language, analyses, rants and opinions in news pieces. Be objective and do not omit details. Be fair, be neutral, be considerate, do not take sides and do not be judgmental. If you are quoting or referring to something you saw in the paper, a book, on the TV, or radio or on the Internet, give full reference. Include the newspaper's name, website link, radio or TV station and date and time. If you are drawing on someone’s reporting or press releases or statements, give them full credit and reference properly. If you are interviewing someone, include their full details and their quotes in full. If possible. Get more than one source, whenever possible. Always ask for a comment from everyone you name, and give each of them a reasonable amount of time to respond. They might surprise you with a new fact, or a new perspective. You cannot take money or gifts from anyone you write about. If you do take money from someone you write about, you must fully disclose it, and explain why it has no bearing on your story. When writing about criminal charges, be specific. Did the accused plead not guilty? Say so. Deny the allegations? Say so. If whoever committed a crime is not known for sure, or has not claimed or pled guilty, do not write about who is suspected or alleged. If the authorities have apprehended someone for a crime, until he has been convicted, the crime is alleged. If someone’s race, ethnicity or age isn’t an important part of the story, leave it out. You can only use profanity and derogatory names in quotes, and when relevant. When covering criminal stories, try to avoid the names of children. The definition of children is as defined by the laws of your locality. If referring to a list, include the full list or provide a reference to find the full list. If you do not have the full list, say so. Do not identify a person unless it is known for sure. If a witness or someone else has identified the person, then include the witnesses name as well. When adding photos, do not mark gruesome photos as the thumbnail. Do not add sexually explicit or lewd photos. You must censor the pictures to remove male and female sexual organs and breasts of females if the picture is relevant to a story. If you are reporting on a press release by a organization or a government, please include the press release, an image of it or a link to it. Do not manipulate images or video except to censor regions as described above. Do not upload images and videos that have a watermark on it, except when the owner or user of the watermark is referenced in the story. Do not copy other people's work and submit as your own. No fabrications. Get caught, and you're banned forevermore.

As long as your content meets the Terms of Service and the guidelines for news, we would not censor it.

Our editors may edit your post to correct spellings, grammar and improve the heading, so you would not need to worry about them. An editor would not change the meaning of your news post.


An Interview is a structured discussion in which the interviewer asks an interviewee a series of questions to which the interviewee provides answers. The interviewee could be a person or a group of people.

Anybody you are interested in or you think has an interesting story, an interesting cause or information. It can be anybody, a janitor, a teacher, a shop keeper, an environmentalist, a businessman, a politician, a celebrity, an athlete, etc. People who do interesting things, have interesting hobbies or jobs or have strong viewpoints always make good candidates.

Think about what you want to know from the person and write down your key questions in advance. You can always ask follow up questions to what is said during the interview to get details. You don’t necessarily need to conduct the interview how current media does. Think of what the average person would like to know about the person you are interviewing and try to ask questions to capture that information. Try to get a unique perspective by doing things your way.

As of October 7th 2021, these are the guidelines for Interview posts - The Interview can be written or in video form. Always get permission from the person you are interviewing. Make sure the person knows the interview would be on Netunzel You can find people to interview on twitter or Facebook or through email. If you know them in person, you can ask directly. Be polite and explain as briefly as possible what you want to talk about and how the information they give you will be used. You can do a written interview by emailing the questions, or you can do an audio interview recorded on your phone, or you can do a video interview on your phone or camera. The interview cannot be anonymous. Whether written or in video, the interviews must state the full name of the person being interviewed. The only exception where anonymity would be acceptable is if there is a dire need for anonymity, as in the case of a whistleblower, where the interviewee legitimately fears reprisals or threats. In this case, sufficient information must be provided in the interview to authenticate the person's position or role even if they don't personally identify themselves. When doing an anonymous Interview, mention the reason in the interview and use the name "John Doe" or "Jane Doe" in place of the person's name and use the person's role in as the subject when posting the Interview. If it is a regular person and the person does not want to be identified, then it is best to skip interviewing them. Please include at least 4 or 5 questions in the interview and a length long enough to capture the story that you are after. If you are doing an audio or video interview, remember to edit it to remove the unnecessary bits and keep it concise. You can use Audacity software for editing audio interviews and OpenShot, Kdenlive, or Shotcut for editing videos. All are free and open source software. Use MP3 file format for audio and MP4 file format for video. If you need any technical assistance, use the contact page to let us know. Do not post false interviews or falsify answers. You would get banned if you did so.
