Hey, I cannot guarantee it is being accepted. It does depend on the judges, who you can aspire to be part of. Wink Please send
me the articles you want to nominate.On January 2th it gets sent to the judges and they chose which articles(Currently a
maximum of 20) gets to the current issue. The money in the pot is then divided over the accepted articles and while it is
being sold all the profits are equally divided between everyone.(1 for me, 1 for each judge, and 1 for each article)

Thanks for your submissions so far. Wink

Ok, not worth it. Takes me a few days to write a quality article.

Well, it is monthly, and after the judges choose the articles it will get out.(2 days max) What is taking time is the call for articles. I hadn't really get one yet apart of genjix's. I am sure after the first issue there will be more interest!

Instead of voting articles, why not set editorial oversight? Say if you get two editors to approve that article, the editors' bids get distributed to these writers...More if they got editors on board?

I was setting up some bitcoin cartoons and checked into CC-PD and couldn't locate the correct img from copyleft. I should just send it to here instead? Will you be individually setting up each article in the mag through copyleft or not bother registering them?

No bother, eitherway they are getting released in the public domain. Tongue
Cartoons are welcomed as long as they remain on-topic.

Kiba, that would be a valid suggestion if the problem were judges.
The problem is that there are null submissions so far. :/

I'd like to nominate "Two Bits" for the name.

I suspect that the bidding minimums are too high. Also, twenty articles per issue sounds like a lot for a monthly publication with a small target audience.

There you go! 20 is the maximum, it will be published if we get at least 5 good articles. Smiley
You can bid since 1 BTC. Will you bid now?

The 5-20 rule sounds very sensible.

Regarding the minimum bids, I was mostly trying to guess at why there were so few bids so far, but go ahead and put me down for 6BTC. (Do I pay in advance, or it a pledge to come due when the writers are paid?)

On january 2nd 2010 the call for articles and bids on votes is ends. The judges get to choose the articles to get on the current issue and the money on the pot(That is put down on the same day) is distributed equally between the accepted articles. Then the royalties of the sells are divided between me, the judges ,and the articles.(31 Shares maximum) You may see the progress at the OP.

I read this parenthetical to mean that bids should be paid to you on January 2nd. If this is the case, then presumably

In the pot for articles: 10 BTC

should be updated to read 16.

Yes, that is why the deadline is until January 2nd instead of just 3 day or one week since I announced this magazine.

My apologies, the info should be updated now. :-)

Yeah, I will have to leave it for later since there are no single submissions. I will do a magazine and some articles soon I guess and then come back to the idea of a community driven one. Is anyone going to submit an article or can I make it official and cancel it for now?

Instead of insisting on 5 by a set date and shutting down if you don't make it why not trigger a release, for example, on the first Monday after you get 5 qualified articles?

Also it isn't a real problem if 4 or 5 of the articles are yours in the beginning. It's pretty unreasonable to think that high quality stuff is just going to appear in the beginning, it needs to be cultivated. If you are willing to do a magazine by yourself you may as well use it to transition to the community mag that you want.
