Question for The Queue: How does one submit articles via Seed? Do we have to wait until there's an open call for submissions, or is there a way to direct something to WoW Insider?

Sometimes you can go to the Seed website and find topics that you can submit articles for WoW Insider (there's also many other websites you can submit articles for), but usually, there will be some sort of "Call for Posts" article on this website with a specific link you need to click on to submit articles through Seed.
This was answered before, but I'll summarize it.Basically you have to be a resident of the US to submit an article to SEED because AOL is based there and as such, they are the company that maintains this and Joystiq, and Massively if I am not mistaken.Someone can correct me if I am wrong on some parts, or add on to this.

Alas, it would be nice to hear what non-US citizens were pondering sometimes.

They used to put out a call for posts on a regular basis with very short deadlines. It seems that these days they tend to leave the calls open longer but do them less often, so if you've got a good idea, don't think to yourself, "Eh...I'll do it next time."Although, if you'd like my advice...I'd continue checking the site today if you're looking for the next Call for Submissions. Just sayin'.

All I can say is that I encourage everyone to at least give it a try. It not only is a blast to come up with conversational topics with the community, but as Cutaia can back me up on (I can only hope he will), the feeling of seeing your work published and fellow members of WoW Insider giving there feedback is astronomically amazing.It is as if all the adorable animals that have been featured on The Queue were thrown in a box, jumbled up a bit with your favorite Internet meme, tossed in a dash of Rossi's beard, and then morph it into one entity....times 42. Yeah, it's THAT awesome feeling.So, if (which it probably is) Cutaia's prediction is correct, make a Seed account, and write up a Breakfast Topic :)And hopefully, one morning, we can reply and enjoy the lovely creation's that you have submitted.

OMG CUTAIA YOU'RE BACK!!! Where have you been all my life??

The only problem with this method is that it the Canadians and other people (not worth mentioning, I KEED, I KEED!) are out of the running. Now this is unless there is a way around the SEED thing for the international peeps. :)

Yeah, what Dreyja pointed out has to be the most obvious problem with getting Breakfast Topics. As far as I can tell, a pretty big chunk of this sites regular visitors are from Europe, and a handful of us are Canadian, and I see commentors from South America and Africa every so often, so the whole SEED thing's USA-only limitation is really holding back on Breakfast Topic submissions.They used to have "please send in Breakfast Topics" articles fairly often for a while, and has only happened a couple of times since 4.0.3 hit, so maybe more Americans have been turned on to the Breakfast Topic submissions, and even more traffic from American players, but that's still a lot of people being left out.
