Yahoo Japan invites user editors to run news page [techradar.com]

Visitors to the Japanese-language Yahoo News page are now presented with large chunks suggested and edited by other readers. The idea is that the 'Editable related section' should offer Wikipedia-like expert knowledge culled from other Yahooers in Japan.

As with Wikipedia or Knol, the sources used don't have to be anything to do with Yahoo they can even be in other languages although, Yahoo's influence in Japan means that a lot of referenced material is its own anyway.

Unlike those US projects, however, Yahoo requires user editors to apply for their (unpaid) positions and even has an online test to sort the sheep from the goats.

Has anyone here applied to edit the News section of Yahoo Japan?

I have never known this news though I'm a Japanese living in Japan. :-<
I would try it.
