It's not at the end of the newsletter at all. I ask for it in the middle of the SECOND PARAGRAPH, and give two links right there to my profile for ease of PMing. I think you're trying to say that everyone's Theory X about submitting things to the Newsletter, which really sucks for the entire staff as we have to beg and plead for any content beyond what we write ourselves.

Wow - and all I'm trying to do is help - and you're getting defensive & aggressive - perhaps that isn't helping your cause?

I'm venting pent-up frustration from doing this for 11 issues and at the least 22 weeks (it's longer than that), and running into the same problems 99% of the time.

I'm assuming that's a half apology...

So - The guys over in Tourneys often send a PM out to people to see if they want to provide some time/interview etc... perhaps you could try that?

We do that for every issue. With exception of polls and blacky's perspective, everything has been solicited specifically thus far. We're running out of people to ask.
