What will be the purpose of the Tournament Newsletter Graphics Competition if the three newsletters are merged into one?
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

We have seriously discussed that option, not only amongst the editor's but we have also had admin input. It's looking increasingly unlikely that the merge will happen ;)

1. It's hard to take over something and keep it running well but how long does it take to get following topics back on track and full of info: Roll of Honour, News Hound and Currently taking signups?

2. How much effort are you putting into checking the spelling and other small details before posting the newsletter?

Can you mention anybody (except yourself) that has concerns about the future of this newsletter :?:

Most of us understand that getting a newsletter at the high level of Gozar will be difficult. Which part(s) are the biggest concern for you :?:

How many people congratulated you with your role of new newsletter editor :?:

i thought it was a very important question... just goes to show you... and you totally got your toes stepped on with that response...
PaulusH wrote:Most of us understand that getting a newsletter at the high level of Gozar will be difficult. Which part(s) are the biggest concern for you :?:

excellent question... and more so, are you going to attempt to fill Gozar's shoes or are you going to try and stamp the newsletter with your own flavor? and if you are going to stamp it with your own unique style, what should we expect that to resemble?
amazzony wrote:2. How much effort are you putting into checking the spelling and other small details before posting the newsletter?

i agree wholly with this. attention to detail is very important. when the editor/staff can't be bothered with checking the spelling and other small details, why should i be bothered with viewing their finished product?

some great questions, look forward to reading the responses if they are chosen...-0
