Nefario gave me a letter of resignation as editor. That mean I am left with no writers or editors at all. In fact, this week issue only have two articles written by me.

I will stubbornly continue this magazine in spite of the increased workload.

Since I cannot technologically manage the publishing platform Nefario moved the magazine to, I will be moving to a new and simpler CMS. This will decrease my technological burden for publishing.

Also, I will be moving the site to a new host and a new domain all paid out of my bitcoin wallet.

The first public domain bitcoin magazine will not die.

I will put some btc towards the cost of the host, I can also transfer weekly.co.nr to you if you would like?

Also if it's still ok with you I would like to contribute some articles from time to time, but I'm not a writer and can't do too many too often.

If you write a good article, it will be approved. Nobody seem to be capable of putting up with my insane demand for an article per week, though.

Transfer of weekly.co.nr domain is also appreciated.

OK, let me know when you have the host set up (i.p etc.) and I'll point the domain at it.

Yes you were a hard driver.

What exactly would being a writer of Bitcoin Weekly entail? I might be interested.

Also, I might be able to help you with any technical problems you may have (unless it's what Nefario offered me 25 BTC to do. I spent countless on that and still couldn't figure it out!)

They must get a rough draft article in before a strict deadline pass: Sunday 0:00 UTC. Then you must finish a final draft by Wednesday 0:00 UTC or you won't get paid for that week.

It will also be public domain. Nothing in my magazine is under any sort of copyright license.

You will also get paid a share of the writer's pool. Currently, the pool is set at 70% of the magazine's advertising revenue.

Not many people can work to such strict schedule though.

Well you write a bitcoin related article, usually technology/finance/economics/business focused.

I was paying up front for writers who got an article published but I'm not editor anymore, I think I did a poor job. I couldn't give this project the time it deserves.

No the technical thing was unrelated.

I think you managing the content managment system, if you know how might be helpful, that would save kiba from having to worry about the technical things.

I did not desire the heavy-weight CMS that I was using. It was too much for my simple magazine and what I need to do. It was not a technical problem, but a usability problem.

It will be far more primitive than wordpress.

I think I could handle that. Is there a minimum length of the articles? Of course, I would write the best article I could, regardless of how much I'd be required to do!

I suppose it doesn't matter much. But I agree - Drupal is overkill for most people!

There is no minimum length other than what you need to say for your thesis.

Submit an article by Sunday 0:00 UTC and we see what we can do.

You should probably stay with the current CMS and system setup until you have the alternative ready, then we can move everything over to it.

The order for a KalyHost bitcoin VPS was successful. I paid 136.20 BTC for six month worth of hosting.

What does the editor job require? (you know, besides copy editing)

I might be able to pick up those reigns.
