Yeah, I'm going to officially boycotting this thing. First off, I read a post where you said that it could see newstands. Now let me ask you this, do you know of more then 100 nerfers that live 2 hours from where you live? Can you name one nerfer for every major city in the US (meaning are there nerfers in every city)? Guess what, nerf isn't popular enough for newstands. It won't sell because they are not spread widely enough. Alot of other sports can do it, but they are grossly popular, while Nerf is a small cult. Save yourself the trouble. No one is going to buy your publication, hell some people here have a problem getting a tech target, let alone a magazine with information that will no doubt be just plagerized off the internet sites that already exsist. That with the point that Shinny made, you can be garanteed that it will cost you more to print the thing then you will make. Then there's the issue of whether anyone will read it. What can you honestly offer in a magazine that I can't get online? On top of that, it was tried once (internet mag) and it failed. I will also question your credibility. How long have you been nerfing and a member of the NIC? Do you really have the understanding an insight that I don't have? If not, why would I read your publication?
You need not respond to these actual critisisms, they're all hypothetical, just want to let you know, that while I like to effort put into Nerf, I'd rather see you outside nerfing, instead of sitting inside typing about it. I think you younglings really need to get it into your heads that experience is key in any game, and very few of you have it. Just go outside and shoot something rather then making a magazine.
Tal, you are being waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too tough on him
. I recall that he said he changed his mind about the newsstand thing. Tal, you apparently like to smash people's ideas into miniscule pieces. A lot of your posts are diss-a-thons if my memory serves me right
. Just take a week or so to cool off.
Edit: P.S. : you also add cuss words in every post because of your slogan. There are some of us (me for example) who don't like others saying the f-word (or any other cuss word for that matter) in every post. Also, some people have parents who don't want them being exposed to such language.
