ah thanks for the heads up, question do I have any say over the ad formats? Because in my bidding pond thing I set up prices for size of ads http://www.biddingpond.com/item.php?id=254 I just want to know if that's alright or if I'm over stepping my bounds. Also any feedback would be great.

I can edit it though, I mean feel free to be like back off. Smiley

I dislike the idea of banners cluttering up my beautiful content pages.

so do you think we should drop it to only page size ads, then maybe drop the price to 35 or so since there is no lower level?

That's a fine suggestion. But do whatever you need to fill those slots and get us revenue. If somebody only want a page slot for 25 BTC, take it.

You might reduce the deadline for the bidding one day before monday so they can send you the content. Format goes a follows:
-Frontpage
-Table of contents
-First Ad
-3 Pages of content
-Second Ad
-3 Pages of content
-Third Ad
...

In the last issue there could had been a third ad. So keep that in mind. Wink

I think you should ditch the whole community driven idea altogether. If your editorship is any good, it will show in your magazine. Plus you don't have to keep score/keep track. You review article and send feedback to the writer.

One month is too long for the magazine. It should be more like 1 week between issues. Also, I don't think this is going to dilute the quality of articles at all as long as you make your decision based on merits, rather than deadline. If the article didn't get through, the writer can resubmit in the next cycle. There should be no artificial number of articles per issue limit. This is not paper.
Absolutely, the editor/publisher model works just fine. Find good authors, review what they write, include as necessary, pay the authors for their articles. Profit. Rinse and repeat. Public domain content with paid ads and maybe a physical delivered copy is the way to go.

1 week is way too short I would prefer quarterly maybe. But if people can find the time, and find it profitable, to work on a monthly schedule, by all means.

Also, someone who can do layout. Good formatting and font would go a long ways.

You should lower your auction price all the way to zero. We want as much revenues as possible.

So, maybe it should be biweekly and not weekly? Also, chris, can you send me the articles and ads so I can compile the new issue or should we wait for next week and make it official biweekly?

Waiting for two weeks between issue is just torture.

Again, how many articles do you have for the next issue?

75% of the revenues is devoted to writers. Those 75% of the revenues is divided up by how many articles a writer submit.

I guess that mean we only going to have two articles this week. Everyone who submitted an article now will have to be reviewed for next week.
