  • It would be a good idea to run your work through a word processor and check for any spelling/grammatical errors, before you submit it to the editor.
  • Do not reveal any details of your work to anyone until it has been published.
  • Forward all your completed work to the editor, alteast 3 days (Thursday) before the date of publication of the issue.
  • The PR manager should forward his content directly to the publisher.
  • You can use the PM system/MSN/IRC to share ideas and co-ordinate.
  • IRC Chat: #mpc

Tips - What you could possibly write about
  • GTA Multiplayer News - Regarding any official updates, releases, and how tos. (1 GTAMP Reporter position now open!) Must keep an eye on official websites.
  • Gangs - Any new gangs that have popped up recently, and any closures. Anything out of the ordinary, such as unusual posts or threads. You could also maybe do a a gang spotlight now and then.
  • Events - About the most popular events, and those with a lot of creativity and potential. Events & Player Spotlight.
  • Interviews - Possible candidates:- proven GTA players, good event organizers, or long standing gang members, or just good people who like to help around or have fun. Ask them questions related to the area of their specialization. Prepare a few questions before hand. As the interview progresses, formate more questions based on their replies if necessary. Make it a casual conversation. Interviews can be taken on MSN/IRC. Once you're done, copy-paste the text into word, fix spelling and grammar, and send it to the editor.
  • Uncle Bob's Column - How you could fix that slipping trigger finger of yours, or how to increase your rank, and stuff like that.

All of the above are just tips - you've got full creative liberty.

Sounds good to me, I hope people will actually use the IRC Chat.
So, When are we all set to start preparing the first issue? monocle.gif

::EDIT:: Oh, I see we still need a GTAMP Reporter.

I would help with this, but I've got my own Newsleter to attend to among other thins tounge2.gif . I hope this gets up and running; seems like it's going to be nicely laid out if it's in PDF. And 15 pages should make a good read in the spare time.

Ok, so me and DemonKing write for gangs, i assume he'll take one page, and i'll take another page, so, i guess we're going to need to speak to each other so that we don't write the same stuff, or something, right?

Yeah I think that's going to have to happen Andy, otherwise we'll end up with the same stuff. wink.gif

I think one page, possibly on general gang news, and the other on a spotlight on a particular gang?

Hmm yeah, that would be alright for me.

So, i'd pick the weekly gang news if that's ok from you.

Troop - lol, I can see where you're coming from. Thats okay, although we should avoid it.

Andy, yeah, it very necessary for you to keep in touch with Demon. Likewise, Chunk and Trooper need to co-ordinate and so on.
As for the format - gang news & gang spotlight seem good. You've got full creative liberty, write it in a way which seems most appropriate to you.

Slight shuffling of responsibilities, proxy will now take care of member feedback too. This is to try and make the workload more equally distributed.

A better idea, would be do it so, one of us does a different page each week. I'll do the gang spotlight this week, and the weekly gang news next week, vice versa for yourself.

Its too premature to be pinned, we should wait until we release issue #1.

Response from most of the team has been overwhelming, thanks guys. If everything's ready by Saturday, we can release the first issue the coming Sunday. There's no hurry though, take your time.

Well I've sent off my interview too. It was good fun.

@ Arv, How are we going to send it out to people? You could have a suscriber list so then staff could advertise it somehow....

I was just thinking, that advertising spot you mentioned. I'd like to you use it; but do I have to PM you or anything with further details, is there any rules I should abide by?

EDIT: Just realised I need to PM Pr0xy with the advert.

Just PM pr0xy with the advertisment you have. Then he will probably tell you if you need to change anything because of rules etc.

Alright, so dunno if Arv heard this when i said on IRC, should we release the first issue this sunday or next sunday?

I can get you my article by tomorrow, just say it.

If the definite day is sunday 23rd, then i'll just write it day by day and when the time comes ill send the report to you.

His words anyway.
But really dont rush it. The 1st issue should be the best and the most exciting so like arv said take your time.

I say we should aim for this Sunday, it shouldn't take very long to get the reports/interviews done, as far as I know quite a few people have already finished them.

well me and chunck are done. Demon's is done. Andy said he can have it donw tommorow
But then still NikoB has to write his report on the events.
+ We have to allow time for questions uncle bob can answer.

So there is alot of work that still needs to be done but if all the reports are done by tommorow I see no reason it cant be published on sunday. I guess we'll see what unfolds.
