We have all these OHR magazines of independently written articles and silly such business, but they never last very long. Here's my solution. Do like Something Awful, and use the main page for these articles, and have mods write digests of important or long topics here in the forums. It keeps the site being updated, the writers having something to write about, and, if the mods are devoted enough to bother, we'll have a flow of new members, particularly writers, who the mods recruit to do their job.

Sure, has potential kinks, but I think it could work. Sorry for my poor writing ability and shortness.

Because we have so few members and games being released right now, there wouldn't be enough interesting content to update daily like SA, or even weekly. It would be sporadic, and people would be less likely to check. Saying "There will be content here on the first of every month" gives people something specific to look forward to, and they know when they'll get it.

Sites like SA can update frequently because they can cover pretty much every topic imaginable in a comedic way; An OHR site deals with a much smaller pool of potential content. Your idea is fine, but it will only work if there is a much larger, much more active community.

The new magazine isn't going to just drop dead, either. Even if I end up being the only person keeping it alive, which, judging from the number of submissions for the first one, probably won't happen any time soon, it will be supported for as long as people have any interest in reading it.

New magazine? I actually wasn't aware. Didn't mean to offend or anything, just felt like throwing out an idea while I was tired.

It's in the first post of the front page. http://castleparadox.com/ohr/viewtopic.php?t=4881

There are also several threads about it.

Come now, how much have you seen me around? My bad though, I'll look into it.
