Rides and projects

Post by malum » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:41 pm

As an idea for magazine content why not trawl the rides and projects section of the forum and then get in touch with any that look interesting and ask them if you can use the content and photos. There's loads of stuff in there that would make good articles.
I'm sure some people would be happy to write up an article from their own content if that's easier and they are willing.
It could have a little section at the end for things they have learned and or wish they knew before they started.

Also a small gripe.The background colours on some of the articles in the latest mag. i.e. the colours behind the text are enough to make your eyes bleed, especially the pages with stripes behind the text! Not needed and makes it awful to read.

Agreed - couldn't read a few of the articles this time, which is a shame considering the time and effort put into the mag.

I'm happy to write articles from the threads on the forum. If anyone would like to nominate a thread please let me know - your own thread or one you've read and enjoyed following.
Thanks, Sally

Yes please!
We'll need to put together some photos too. These will need to be >1MB to be suitable for printing in the magazine.
Look forward to reading it.
Thanks,
Sally
