Last Week's WINNER: Cograts to Gilligan!

Last Week's Answer:

"How many sub-forums does the Tournaments forum have?"

Tournaments that organizers are planning on running.

Roll of Honor is changing direction instead of randomly naming off all the winners we will spotlight a well fought victory.
If you or someone you know has won a important Tournament victory PM the winners name to sailorseal with a short description of why it deserves to be spotlighted.

This week I will answer all the questions and concerned posed by the readers. All questions were submitted by readers of the newsletter.

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?

1. Roll of Honour is changing direction and will soon be holding information again. It has the same problem with News Hound, no one is participating. I have no one to write the News Hound, no one is submitting anything for Roll of Honour, if you submit it, I will run it.
Nothing has changed for Currently Taking Signups
2. I put in all the effort it takes to make the Newsletter spotless, last issue I had to sneak away from a party to post the Newsletter but unfortunately was caught and missed a detail or two.

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

A: Kotaro

Q: 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 :?:

A: News Hound solely for the reason that no one wants to write the section

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

A: Many wrote things to me for my first issue, not so many wrote things to me for the new job but I thank those that did :D

Q: What is the role of samuelc812 with respect to the tournament newsletter :?:

A: He is our Graphics Designer

Q: 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?

A: I am going to try and blend the two, the style I am trying to resemble more is to have a Newsletter where there are more areas for regular readers to contribute
