I'll be your editor-in-chief for the rival publication to The Bitcoin Times.

We're called The Bitcoin Weekly.

I will run a strict deadline for both writers and advertisers.

We'll be taking articles until Monday next week with publication of our first issue on Wednesday. Advertisers will have until Monday 0:00 UTC to approve a deal. Wednesday 0:00 UTC is the deadline for advertising content submission. If you don't have everything done by Wednesday, you'll have to simply wait for next week.

The earning fees are approximately: 25% for editor-in-chief. 5% for proofreader. Writers get 70% of the pie but will be divided based on how many articles they wrote. For example, if you wrote 4 articles out of the total pool of 13 articles, you'll get 31%(rounded from .30769..) of the 70% partitioned for writers.

I will be writing articles for the publication as well but my articles don't count since I already get 30% of the pie anyway.

Topics we're looking for:

1. Political philosophy
2. Entrepreneurship
3. Interview and review
4. Programming and cryptography
5. Economics
6. Short story/comics

Submit an article or an advertising inquiry at hackerkiba@gmail.com. Remember, advertising deals should be done by Sunday. Writers need to have a rough draft by Sunday.

If the the issue is late for ANY reason, we will either refund your advertising dollars OR rerun your ads again next week. However failure to submit advertising content deadline by deadline are NOT entitled to ads rerun(no refund because you never paid us).

A new issue is publishing between 0:00 UTC and 4:00 UTC Wednesday.

When you publish an article with us, it will be under UNLICENSE.


Edit history:


Edit: change percentage ratio.

Edit2: move deadline

Edit3: Delay policy.

Edit4: Publishing date.

Edit5: miscella edits spread over several minutes of saving and editing.

Edit6: Edit ratio...

Edit7: Make it clear what's we're licensed under.

Editor-in-chief is an important job, and I think you should get 30%. You will be the one who "makes it happen" and you deserve enough to make it worthwhile.

And of course you should get an author's share for any articles that you write, in addition to your editor's share. You may need to split the author's share based on number of pages/words instead of number of articles.

You should also encourage people to find advertisers. Anyone who finds a new advertiser should get a 30% share of the advertising price.

I have often noticed a reluctance amongst people in this forum to allow for business-like profit margins, but in the real world most paths are greased with incentives. It's better to have a magazine that pays 70% to authors and gets published, than one that pays 90% to authors and doesn't get published, or doesn't have any advertisers.

Nefario: have you ever respond to my email reply? If you can do that and revise the article by Wednesday, that will be the key to getting it published on Wednesday.

Anyway, we won't have any revenues this week until somebody either willingly sponsor the magazine out of their selfless good or advertise.

The deadline is fast approaching. Please submit your rough draft by 0:00 UTC Monday. Thank you.

BTW, I seem to have secured a 10 BTC advertising deal. It's not final. But if it is, then writers will get paid a very small sum this week.

There should be a topic for computer hardware and the best software (as in most efficient, cost effective) setup for mining. I am sure there would be a few authors willing to write about that (read: me). I am liking the idea of this weekly digest. It reminds me of 2600 magazine.

That could fit under the review section.

Anyway, the deadline window is closing quickly. So, anything you submitted after Monday 0:00 UTC is automatically destined for next week.

The submission deadline had already been passed. So far, we only have Nefario submitted an article. I guess that mean more work for me.

I wrote a story integrating bitcoin and agorism. So the next issue should at least have two articles.

It seem that we will be a little bit late in releasing the inaugural issue of Bitcoin Weekly.

Yes, this was an unfortunate delay but the deadline is 0:00 UTC Wednesday(8 o'clock tuesday where I live). I decided to wait for Nefario to fix his writing before it get published.

To remedy this problem:

1. The deadline is now Sunday.

2. Design template so that the time took to package the content together is lower.

3. Get more writers on board so that the magazine isn't delayed by writers not completing their revision.

4. As soon as the rough draft is submitted. I will try to edit them all before Monday 0:00 UTC rolls around.

Due to the fact that this magazine was delayed, the sponsor of inaugural issue will appears again next week.

Edit: I also made the policy much clearer.

It had been brought into my attention that my mis-spelling are rather common in my story despite my effort to proof read the whole writing two times.   Embarrassed

That's embarrassing<--(word that had to be fixed by spell check) as an editor-in-chief.

This is preventing me from doing my job effectively as an editor-in-chief. Therefore, starting tomorrow, I will learn how to spell all the words that I missed for this week..and all the words I mis-spelled next week, and so on.

Since I don't have any more time tonight. I will be fixing my mistakes in the morning.

P.S. Somehow open source word processor don't come with spellcheck built-in. (LibreOffice, I am looking at you)
