Derpy (Hooves) News is a not-for-profit independent animation news & information website. Our goal here is simple. A slow paced animation news site focused primarily on show related news. The site was started in 2010 as a fan site dedicated to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and expanded into other cartoons in the Fall of 2013. Our staff is made up of blue collar people who dedicate whatever free time they have to our site. Why? Because as adults, we love cartoons. Beyond the basic goal of news and information, we do not take part in social media, nor do we have any kind of community built around the site. We don’t advertise or use advertisements, we don’t care about pageview numbers or click counts, we just care about providing a useful simple service.
As of 2016, three of our six shows are ending (or have already ended). We are currently scouting for new shows to cover, and are open to suggestions. Currently we cover…
- My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
- Steven Universe
- Star Vs The Forces of Evil
We are currently looking bored individuals who wouldn’t mind dedicating some time to our humble site. We are looking for the following…
Reporters: Individuals who find the latest show news and report on it.
Writers: Individuals to write editorials, reviews, and theory articles.
More specifically we are looking for 2 reviewers for the upcoming 6th Season of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, along with reviewers and writers for Steven U & Star Vs when they return. Steven is in mid-season 2 hiatus mode, while Star Vs is currently in post-season 1 hiatus mode.
Ideally reporters will need to be a Skype or Telegram user, but it is not required. Knowledge of WordPress a plus, but also note required. Both writers and reporters can submit their articles via e-mail, and an editor will create and publish the article for you.
If you are interested, please contact our Press Box. Please include any experience you have, name or nickname you prefer, and what you’d like to do. Please allow at least 7 days for a reply. I know, its 2016, we’re slow like molasses.
