If anyone is willing to help writing news, they can always PM me stuff I guess, describing their respective programs and why they think they're newsworthy.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I usually feel uncomfortable when it comes to promoting my own projects, I mean asking for relevant people to write about it. But well, dunno if I have to work on that.

If you (and admins) agree, I can (and would be very glad to) take some time to write news about games from Omnimaga. Though, are projects definitely out of the question, or can one write about one if it looks especially promising ?

Whenever I promote a project there really needs to be a fully functional demo to have news, else, the only way for a project to get featured is if it shows signs of progressing nicely (if a newbie starts a 3D grayscale FPS that won't work due to low chances of completion) during a certain period of time and it really needs to stand out. I wonder when was the last time Omni ever featured a project that had no download, though, because I always had the habit of only featuring stuff that has gameplay screenshots less than a certain filesize and a download link.

As for promoting your own stuff, if you PM me for a news it is merely to help me write it. For example, I'll just quote the description and stuff, else, having to write news about every notable releases is too much time-consuming when I am trying to split my time between news, coding, life and posting.

I agree with matref in that it is very hard to promote your own games.
I would also, enjoy helping to write news about games from Omnimaga. Maybe group of volunteers could be responsible for writing a set of news/reviews on new games/updates every month or so?

That could work too. I guess for the time being, until new staff is assigned to news, you could just PM me what content you want so I can post it then mods approve it. I already got 1 news submission right now.

Cemetech just started "Project of the Month" (http://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10371) which is essentially the idea discussed here.
It'd be nice if it happened on Omnimaga ^.^

Don't do it. That means I have to actually finish Continuity one time D:
Just kidding, I would indeed like to have a small overview of completed projects per month. I'd rather not have it be "project of the month", though, because that makes it too competition-y.

Err.. I meant to write "Projects of the Month", plural, not singular

What is this concept you call "completion"?

No project is ever finished. It's just on the back of the bench for a while.

I guess you could call it "released". I agree, no project is ever completed.

I would love to write, but I don't have too many projects worth mentioning/projects in general.

Source Seekers is good, but I don't have too much info on it
Source Seekers 68k hasn't started yet, and I'm struggling

We have a download section for this, but there is a disadvantage to this section: You cannot leave feedback there.
If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

Well, community forum sections work, but they only work well for projects big enough to deserve their own subforum.

Speaking of that, admins said they would clean the "Major projects" sections (both by-admins and by-community-members) one day.
