This is truly wondrous Cramulus.

It shows just how little work you need to do to pull off one of these. Srsly.

Kudos and thanks.

Now I feel the need to write something as well.

Looks great. I'm still amazed you put it together in only 3 hours.

Excellent, Payne!




You two:

I'd like to be an editor for an issue, if no one minds. I'd have to start trudging through the forums for stuff, but...


I'd also like to give editing a try sometime, although I'd like to put it off



yes, please put together issues.

may I suggest? don't wait in line to make an issue - begin working on it now, even if only in the conceptual stage.
          -and also don't overthink it:

The first one you make will be the most challenging, so I suggest just firing it out of your brain like you're clearing a bong














or a crackpipe

Can "Who Killed The Lulz" be a sort of recurring theme? As in, every publication will take some already-published text and replace the name of the main subject with "lulz," generally revolving around the theme of lulz being killed or disappearing.

yes, you should write that column!

Ack! Um, it's going to have to wait at least until this next weekend. This is my last week of school before Thanksgiving holidays, so I'm a tad busy. Also, I've never done anything like this before, so I'll have to figure things out.

Cram you Damnulus! The massive awesomeness (and massive size) has reduced my stapler to tears from trying to bind the pages.

Repost from other thread:

From here on in, I would like to be notified when my work is being used beforehand.

What I post on a forum with people I more or less know is not how I would post to a new, unknown audience and I would like time to make any necessary edits or raise questions about the use of the essay in question.  This does not necessarily relate to generally using my work elsewhere a la kopyleft (where an individual can highlight or extrapolate on the parts they wish to use) but the fixed format magazine/download, which does not allow for such feedback.

TIA

cool - may I suggest updating your kopyleft note to reflect that?

also - would you like to edit the pieces of yours I've put in Transmittens? It's not difficult to update, and the more I look at issue 1, the more little shit I see that I'd like to tighten up anyway.


if publishing your stuff without your green light caused some annoyance,
mea culpa; my bad

So a few people have mentioned that they have layout skillz

If someone would like to step up to the plate, I'd like to capitalize on that - issue 1 needs better layout. I can send an edited .doc for anyone that wants to toss it into a more magazinelike format.

Anybody interested?
