Bulbanews columnists are users who have been granted permission to regularly publish opinion articles by the board of editors. They may also publish news articles.
Columnists choose their own subject and update schedule. Depending on the nature of the column, they may take requests for topics. Opinions expressed by Bulbanews columnists are not necessarily the views of the Bulbagarden network.
As required, Bulbagarden may publish opinion pieces by authors not contracted as a columnist as a one-off or in a short series.
