Well, I bet when some of you saw that thread title you expected good news, and I hate to disappoint, but I have to fulfill Lord Yossanrion's prediction in the WD 304 thread and say I can't spearhead this thing. For the last few weeks, I've received a number of emails from some very enthusiastic LO posters who are very interested in the prospect of doing an alternative to White Dwarf online. We'd all hoped to create something by players for players, that doesn't pander or act solely as a propaganda marketing machine. I would sincerely love such a thing to come to fruition, and I would love to have a hand in creating it, but sadly I just can't find the time.
I tried working out how I could do this, but between my two jobs, work around the house, taking care of my pets, and making sure I don't neglect my girlfriend to the point where she drops my sorry ass, I only get a couple hours a week to either paint minis or game as it is: adding article writing, editing, and managing this little online experiment would be impossible to fit in. I'm very sorry about this, especially after getting everyone's hopes up and receiving so many enthusiastic replies. I received emails from no less than 8 great players who care enough about this game and their community to really put in the effort to help make it better; kudos to all of you.
I would sincerely like to see something like this go ahead, but if it does, it will have to be without me. If anyone is brave enough to take up this mantle, please PM me and I can send you all the info I have so far. It will be quite an investment of time and effort, but if anyone out there cares enough to take it upon themselves, I think they could create something really special.
Thanks again everyone. I hope you're not too disappointed. Maybe we'll see something develop in the future, and in the meantime, let's just hope White Dwarf starts to improve at some point.
I am really sorry to hear this Houston, It would have been great to have you with us but we'll have to make due with out you.
I'm now well and willing to help jump start this, I think that any who haven't already plz send me an Email at Miketehfox@gmail.com.
we'll need a place to put it, most likely www.Freewebspace.com, and if any one knows a better free hosting service plz let me know!
I would also like to see if theres anyone taking a Website design course of something similar, I am but it would be really nice to get some help!
I won't be online all the time due to school but I can still work on stuff inbetween.
I really hope we can work together and make this work!!!
You need to set up your account so you can recieve PMs Houston!!!!!! And so should eveyone wanting to get involved!
I hadn't heard anything about this! It sounds like a really great idea. What would it be, fluff, tactics, everything?
I am also very busy (my life sounds alot like Houston's actually!) but I would very much like to contribute the odd article/do some editing.
I have edited and sold a small science fiction magazine in real life, and had a few stories published by other mags. Hopefully I will be able to bring some of my experiences to bear in an online format, though web publishing is a first for me.
Count me in for as much as I can offer, and send me the details. I don't have time to maintain and run the thing but I can certainly edit the content for spelling and grammar if you email me the stories. This is a boring thing that most people hate but i kind of find it fun so... bring it on I say!
PS We're not going to be sued by GW are we?
Naw, Druchii have been running an e-zine for a long time, and they haven't been sued. It's just a bounch of opinions and pictures in a pretty package, just like a forum but all the best in a couple of pages.
I love the idea.
if somethin starts can i do tactics??
INNOCENCE IS NOT IMMUNITY
This is what I was afraid of....
I'll just let you know that for now we won't be taking any more peeps till we get up and running smoothly. Heres my reasoning, it seemed when we started this up at first it seemed like 20 or so peeps would be in but were down to 8 no that we've actually started and I've started asking people for help. So until then you guys can help spread the word but not yet, we've only just got the forum up and running(still working out some bugs) and I still need to make the site. So until we can start posting Articles we won't be doing much advertising.
A suggestion is to have some kind of 'Army of the month' or whatever release-schedule you will have. Just a couple of pages of pictures of an army you people found that is very nicely painted/uniquely converted and have the owner say a couple of words about why he did this and that, and the favourite 2000 point army list that this owner has for his army.
