meanwhile cuddles, you should post the text you collected for your Intermittens issue, just in case somebody wants to lay it out . . .

Perhaps --- but I don't think anybody's gonna declare it "done". As soon as there've been no new submissions for a week, I'd say that's a good indicator that we're out of steam on it. Also, having a "first draft" pamphlet is often what we need to see what the project is missing.

It's LMNO & Nigel's thing.  They should say when it's done.

And I'm not out of steam, not yet.  I wasn't aware we had a deadline.

huh, I thought it was a collaborative board project, my bad.

Anyway, starting to put together a layout draft =/= writing deadline


layout & design can have a big impact on content, it's not something you should save for the very end IMO

It is.  But it's being run by those two, as editors.  It's like an intermittens, except it's a book.  It's nowhere near book length yet, and as far as I know, we are not in the habit of making decisions for intermittens editors without even their consent, and I think the same applies here.

Yes, it's a collaborative board project, and no, you may not take it over.

What part isn't being understood?
