[SOL] Sons of Liberty
Earlier the week, NikoB edited out the post claiming the gang to be dead.
However, they seem to have gotten coperone2 as their new member, but their
leader, SGNT_KICK_ASS still isnít satisfied, so he asked the Gang Council to
help him keep the Sol alive, as apparently no members other then he and
coperone are in SOL anymore


Can I just say that statment is untrue about there been 2 members because the current GTA Active S0L Members are

Good read. smile.gif icon14.gif

Allow me a few corrections on the gang section:

- The name of the gang is not Dirty Twelve but it is D1RTY12 and so it should be spelled in the future (please colgate.gif ).

- Nobody was actually kicked out of DDZN. The gang simply closed and then was reborn under a new name with a new roster.
The former DDZN members can join D12's Independent Division: DIRTY BRIGADE, not a probation brigade btw.
By doing so they'd be members of the gang called D12 but no enlisted in the 1st Division.

- my rank is Major, not general lol

- we still love Goonah tounge2.gif

Good read guys, and hurrah for implementing in the GC's suggestion. Although, like I said before, be prepared to receive and publish both positive and negative feedback.
I do have a few things in mind that I'll send over. I just need some time to mould it into something worthwhile.

Errors will be fixed for the next issue.

However, despite that we have launched the ''reader's comment's section, only 1 comment has been sent to us, and the issue is only 2 days away. Very disappointing.

Finally, one member, which name we would like to keep anonymous said that the covers of MM are somewhat made in very low quality. We are still unsure whether it can be considered bad quality, but weíre open to listen to what the people have to say about the cover, do you like it or not. IF the majority agrees the covers are indeed bad, and point out exactly what is bad in them, we will contact our cover designer.

This is most probably a problem with the software used to create the PDFs, rather than the cover image itself. I faced a similar situation with Issue #1.
I believe you're using PDF creator, increase the image quality. Expect the file size to increase steeply though, there are a lot if images in the MM.

Even otherwise, the image quality is not that bad unless you've zoomed in to 200%. Whoever complained of the cover's quality, zoom out to 100%.


Thanks for your reply to my feedback Andy, nicely dealt with.
I still think that it would be better to avoid making assumptions, it would save you lads some work at the least. Rumours are a completely different thing.
I can still feel some kind of bias, or maybe its the wordings. Using the wrong words can convey a completely wrong meaning (Or maybe I'm being a Nazi tounge.gif ). I'll compare a few issues, reply with a few extracts next week. It would be wrong to push this any further while its just a gut feeling.


People, please provided these guys more feedback, they want it! Appreciate their work and encourage them, send in your suggestions/complaints. Either way, they'll feel and happy that their work is being acknowledged. It'll also help them make improvements.
They do a lot to get each issue out.

Good work guys icon14.gif

I have only one problem and that is probably happening just to me.
I can't see the fonts of at least 40% of the content. Especially titles, interviews and other stuff.
I know you need to keep the fonts mainly to have clickable links but couldn't you try to use a font that is readable for every computer?
I have a mac full of fonts, I read PDFs with Preview but the only way I can read everything is by opening each single page in photoshop.
It's a bit frustrating tbh...
Here's an example of what I see usually:1 & 2

Maybe you could save two versions of each issue, one with fonts and clickable links and one in which all text it's actually an image. colgate.gif

Then say exactly what you mean, what line, etc, like it's being said in the MM.

From your coughs, i can only get it that you have an uncureable decease that's..not curable.


edit: Just been clearing my PM inbox, and i've noticed a submission from uni for MM 22, i'm sorry for not putting it out in the MM, totally forgot you sent it to me, but it will appear in Issue 23 i assure you!

Will SOL reach page 60?
Yes

Will the GTANet server re-open?
No

Will the Droogs get a new member?
No

Btw a suggestion, or I don't think It's actually a suggestion, just a thing I like to read about, that's the peoples point of view and opinions. I would like to see a little longer interview, maybe having even two in one issue or even a debate of some sort.
Just my two cents

Nice issue, really like the new layout. I've been a big fan of MM since the start and i believe I've downloaded pretty much every issue since the first. To be honest i thought the Droogs bit was gonna be a bit bias but you pulled it of quite well as far as I'm concerned (except for the embarrassing typo in the part where you quote me tounge.gif ). The third question in the last Issue is quite funny now in retrospective.

Keep up the good work guys, you've improved a lot since the early issues under the new management icon14.gif

Will HK arrive at page 100?: NO

Will the final of the IV:MP DM tournament be played?: NO

Will Hodgey1989 win in the 3rd round of Muscle Cup?: NO

Good issue this week. Thanks for putting in my 'Click, Click, Boom' and ' Superpunch' videos. Just one minor note, the Xmas bash is on the 6th. But no biggie, rather early than late lol.gif .

As for download numbers, I think it's pretty good. But then you've got to put in the fact that you have a whole team of members working on a huger number of things, so it can get frustrating that such work gets unnoticed. The GTAFNewsletter only musters around 7-30 total downloads, which is a lot smaller. However, the main issue is done through PM so allot of members don't need to look for it, it gets delivered to them.

Although most of the more active members here (in the Multiplayer Section) download the MM for sure, including myself; and it goes without saying, the effort put in is thoroughly appreciated icon14.gif .

Not once did I say I wasn't in the mood for playing a match, if the people who made this had put some effort in to research for the story they would have seen that I told guru we weren't in the gang league any more and that us HK were busy playing MW2.

Seriously, get the facts before writing, guys icon14.gif

@YoungJoe: You have no idea how much trawling they do. Sure, mistakes happen, and you could report them but its is necessary to be that serious about it? The MM is completely run by volunteers. They do this out of their own interest and for fun.
MM, once again I'd like to insist that you avoid making assumptions. tounge.gif

Well done fellas. I'm still not though reading it, but the MM is captivating as always.
Cover looks much better, even when zoomed in. icon14.gif
In any case, I've never found images to be a problem.

I've posted the GC write-up in the GL. One thing you could do to bridge the gap between groups and the gangs is remove the 'Official' classification from the gang reports. Present them as you would present any other gang.

The events section could be done a little better. The smaller events could be given more attention, rather using more than half page for a banner. I can't really complain though, without any dedicated staff for the events section, you've come up with good content. I wish I could help rather than just typing suggestions, but writing isn't my thing and I'm afraid I can spend much time on it.

That said, enough of my ranting. I will send in my appreciation and gratitude for the MM team later this week.
