*A MS Word version of Issue 1 will be put up ASAP

(For those who are not aware of it, FI is a triweekly magazine that features pages and pages of juicy Nerf goodness.)

Edit: Edit: Oops...the MS Word link doesn't work...sorry about that. We'll fix that ASAP. For now you can read the MS Reader version.

You guys seem to be mixing armageddon 01 up with armageddon 02, but regardless, nice job. These issues really are quite massive aren't they? I mean there's a ton of content in there. Let us know if we can help you guys in anyway.

That issue actually should have gotten more content than issue one, but we didn't get our reviews, and the Hal interview.

Great job on the issue, guys. Thanks for including me in the 2002 moments...

I'd like to reiderate what VACC said. You guys have the content, but I think you need to expand upon who contributes. There's gotta' be a handful of articles written by Webby and GD in this issue, and not that that's a bad thing, it's just one of the many things you look forward in a magazine are it's different stories, writing styles, and perspectives that different people bring to the scene. Ya' know? Just a suggestion...oh, and for those interviews you might wanna have a few questions laid out ahead of time instead of just talkin' about it, so if a question sparks a field of conversation, you can talk about it that way. Otherwise, good job!

We wanted to have more people write the stories but a lot of our staff members were on vacation at the time and poor Cadmond was ill. :D Thanks for the advice though.

I'm sure any of us here would be open for article writing, interviews, or anything of that nature. I got an A on an all-essay exam I just took for school, and I'm in an AP History class, so I do alot of writing, I enjoy doing it. Just ask if you want us!

I was hoping the LCM could get the content in that I was hoping for but it never happened. Anyway, I think I agree with Vacc and Groove. I would be more poised to read the whole issue if there where more contributions. I know that I'm one of those non-contributors that said they would (that website took longer than expected) :D .

I will be perfectly honest though, I skipped a lot of areas of the magazine. It's not that I hate the job you guys do, it's great but, there are areas there they either, a. I have no interest in, or b. I was hoping to find different authors as I combed through your publication.

A valve is a bit different from an airtank... But otherwise, nice content. I'd suggest a change of background and text colour, for the sake of those who live in sub-optimal basements, as well as some magazine coverage of some of the more popular mods and R&D. Otherwise, a very interesting venture.

It's kinda funny how Evil Angel got positions five and eight on the top 15 of 2002. I mean, there's no doubt that the Daemon is a great creation and... well I forget the other thing he got on the 15. It's a great feeling to also think about being a part of NJ Apoc and it becoming number 10. Also, great numbers one and two. Those were extremely big in 2002 and I was impressed with the second issue.

Yea, I'm pretty honored to hold positions on the top 15, #8 being my website's custom gun section and the other being #5, the Daemon. I was actually really suprised too, as I saw it for the first time at Shindig's house on New Year's eve. I think I was the most shocked there. Pretty impressive thus far, it's a shame the rich text version isn't working.
