Posted 17 May 2005 - 04:21 PM Edited by mickarrow, 24 May 2005 - 03:08 PM.

I started a new topic so I could keep editting the first post.

The idea is this:
Anyone who wants to write an article for Myriad Monthly, apply here.
State what you are going to write, so I can make a list here of what's being written by whom. This to avoid duplicate articles.

DON'T POST ARTICLES HERE!

If you have ideas about articles, but ,for example, not the time to write them, post them also. This could help people who are willing to write an article, but have no clue about what.
There's no lenght limit to your article. It can either be a short review or a large story.

Entry date: 27/05/05
(preferably sooner, so Gangsta Killa has the time to edit the articles)
How to supply your article: send it to [email protected]

I can do anything to do with the vehicle modelling - I'll do an article on any cars in development at the moment, their proposed release dates and even interviews with modellers if necessary tounge.gif

All right, sounds great. I'll put them in the ideas section for now. If you've got anything particular, I'll add it to the articles section. So maybe other people could write about the vehicles too smile.gif .
Thanks for your support

i'd like to write about work in progress, upcoming releases and, if in the next week there happens to be any, NEW releases.

I probably won't go into too much detail, more like a big outline leading into other articles (such as JoaoBio article on illy's new islands).

I mean I'll do an article on it; I'll think of a headline and name for it soon. So can definition_of_freak steer clear of vehicle development? And perhaps everything else too apart from one specific area, such as coding or mapping? He's basically proposing to do half of the newspaper, and we haven't even seen any of his work.

I hear you STM, and I'm sure d_o_f will steer clear of vehicles if you insist. But you can't tell him to steer clear of everything but one subject. Its not like we got tons of writers right now. I wish we had, but it's not.
I do would like to know what d_o_f means by 'like a big outline leading into other articles '. Does this means you're not writing own articles?


I got a question for all of you: What should the newsletter be named? I just said Myriad Monthly ''cause, well, basically that's what it is. Twistie called it The Myriad Star, wich also got a ring to it.
I'm asking this 'cause I'm currently making example lay-outs and therefore I really need to know what you all would like to name it.

Here's the banner Twistie made

user posted image

Caponester's banner got a good newspaper feel to it, but I'd like to keep it in the colors of the website.
I'm not asking for banners, but if you wish, you could make them off course. The reason why is because I most likely will need to be able to change it so it'll fit in the lay-outs I'm making.


also: WRITER'S NEEDED!! if you people want to read more then one issue.

Off course you can help, everybody can biggrin.gif

Just check the 'ideas section' in the first post if you're looking for inspiration.

@Caponester: I thought your article was very good. I haven't heard GK yet, but my girlfriend read it and she said it read very well smile.gif .If you've got any more of such articles in you, please let them out.

Glad to hear that smile.gif Another volunteer.

Well, basically, all you need to know is in the first post. There are quite a few areas uncovered for the moment, or maybe you have an idea already...
Everything's welcome.

@ all writers: To stop Myriad Monthly from dying after the first issue, we'll need more articles. I'm not asking for anyone to commit themselves on a regular basis, I was just wondering if the people who wrote so far are interested in doing this every month, or just for the first issue? It's not so that one-time work isn't appreciated (it is, very much in fact) but it would be great to have a regular team on this one.
Or maybe people could write in advance, like car reviews or lot reviews. There are allready a lot of cars and lots released. Those could all be reviewed. This wouldn't mean all those reviews should be placed in one issue. More like spread out over various issues, giving Myriad Monthly a better chance of surviving.

Since the newsletter subscription question was brought up again, I've attached a poll. Basically, we'll announce a new issue of Myriad Monthly in a thread here on the forum, as well as at the website. So if you care, you won't miss it. But if enough people want it, we could also send out a notification email or PM, linking to the latest issue. Please vote.

Bump smile.gif

So how is the issue coming, I assume a release will be soon if you guys have got all the sh*t together.

How are you gonna lay it out? I assume MyriadIslands.com will host the issue and of course all the back issues if we ever make another one.
