Roanoke Times designer

Discussion in 'Journalism Jobs' started by RoanokeTimes, Dec 7, 2006.

  1. Nothing to get over, Penis. Unlike Dye Pack, I don't have a problem with designers — probably because I've got to do it five nights a week.

    I'm just going back to some of the original stuff on this thread about someone calling it a copy-editing position.

    I will now return this thread to its originally scheduled programming.

    Then it shouldn't be referred to as a copy editing opening.

    What part of "Roanoke Times designer" says copy editor? What part of the guy saying they lost their LEAD DESIGNER says it's a copy editing position?

    See earlier post.

    No, DyePack, YOU see the earlier post.

    It's a DESIGN position in which you will be asked to occasionally edit copy. I am a copy editor, and I proof pages. Was my job advertised as a page proofer? No.

    You really need to pick your spots better.

    What? We're referring to the second or third post in the thread.

    Right. Where someone asked if there had been a run on copy editing positions.

    But you chose to quote the above post and say 'then it shouldn't be referred to as a copy editing opening' about a Roanoke-specific answer.

    So either you have no idea what you're talking about, or you just choose to make your points at really bad times using the wrong quotes.

    OK, that's the post in reference. THAT is a reference to a copy-editing position.

    The first post says two designers moved to the copy desk because they were ready for something different. I already made an allowance for the people possibly wanting to stay in the area or the newspaper not wanting to hire new people.

    But the whole dialogue still smacks of the usual: Newspapers advertising design jobs as "copy editor" jobs or putting burnouts into copy desk roles.

    You still need to get over it. Apply for positions you're interested in. If a certain ad irritates you, don't fucking apply.

    Please, let's get back on track here, which is a good job at a good paper, working for a great editor.

    Read the second post of the thread.

    The cut-and-paste function -- continuing to get heavy use in 2007.

    Why exactly is it that DyePack is banned from the design thread, but allowed to post on threads like these? Just wondering aloud. DP, don't waste your strength responding, I won't be reading anything else you write on this thread.

    This opening is for a designer. When reading the ad, when do you NOT get that impression, Dye????

    Please, answer that question. Then STFU!
