As some of you may know, Geocities.com is closing today (26th). I want someone to write a fun “Top 10 Reasons Why the Closing of Geocities is Long Overdue” article for Nettuts+.

I’ll pay $200 to whomever can submit this round-up in the next 12-13 hours. In addition to your 10 reasons (which you’re free to pick), I’d like you to include a handful of snapshots of some especially terrible looking Geocities sites from the 90s. :)

If interested, please format your article just like this one:

http://net.tutsplus.com/articles/web-roundups/10-reasons-why-you-should-upgrade-to-windows-7/

Images should be 600px wide, and use H3 headings.

Thanks! Leave a reply if you have any comments, and send the completed article to nettuts@tutsplus.com.

Jeffrey

No pressure – but if you decide to write it, you won’t have to worry about this anytime soon: http://bit.ly/t8dGG
