Well, I haven't seen the other magazine yet, so...

Coineer: This is what he is talking about. A bit surprised that you haven't seen it since the thread has been on the first page a lot over the past few months.

I am actually well aware of that particular site and the threads surrounding it, which was why I said if there was one that was not an eZine or "coming soon".

Um...really?

Ways To Buy and Sell Bitcoins
Person-to-person online
There are lots of eager traders out there willing to exchange their coins for a variety of payment methods.

Exchanges
Bitcoin trading sites have sprouted up all over the globe.
You can buy and sell on these open markets and they all have various deposit and withdrawal methods.

Person-to-person in person
There are even people who are willing to meet and
exchange Bitcoins for money, goods or services.

No examples?

Although your effort is noted, it looks like this was put together in a few days.

No REAL interviews? Barely any authors?

Dont take it personally, just constructive criticism

In the words of Coach Z, "Good Jorb!"

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed this trolling wasn't more elaborate.

Fake ISSN? Check.

Thinking having an ISBN or ISSN means you're published? Check.

Complete lack of content? Check.

Lack of research into previously existing PDF e-zines for Bitcoin? Check.

Confusing self-distribution through personal site and being distributed? Check.

I give it 3/5 stars for effort, with comical emphasis on this line:

I enjoyed the article "Why Bitcoins Suck (And What To Do About It)". The writing was clear and to-the-point. The only suggestion for getting the public to use bitcoins was to discount products, which is a good idea, but remember merchants save money by accepting bitcoin. They can pass those savings onto the consumer since they don't have to pay credit card fees. I just thought that was an important aspect of bitcoin that wasn't mentioned.

When I first heard of bitcoin I figured merchants had the most incentive to drive the use bitcoins (Memory Dealers) because of lower fees (Bit-Pay), and I still do. Many merchants are accepting bitcoin for that reason. Adding more payment options doesn't hurt.

No worries. Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Sources right now out there are limited, that's for sure, but the original material we have is innovative and will grow exponentially. This is only a very humble beginning.

This is issue #0. It is a "lite" issue but covers the information needed to expose Bitcoin to a new audience. There are also no advertisers, so it may seem a little thin, but it shows that a professional magazine can be produced about Bitcoin on time. Our print editions will be ready shortly Smiley

The To-Do list on the back cover essentially sums up some of our next steps and we will be making additional announcements shortly.

This effort will progress and improve over time and feedback is always appreciated.



An ISSN number does not make it published, but it does make it easier for retailers to get access Wink

So then it's not published? When are you planning on publishing it? I'd really love to order a copy when it's ready. This flattery is too novel to ignore.

A response from you was inevitable and not really a major concern.

Feel free to call the ISSN fake. It is more accurately referred to as "new" so when databases get updated, search results will be fine.

The current state of publishing is only the initial soft rollout online.

I am not concerned with the checklist you are providing, we will proceed on our own merits.

As always, feedback is appreciated Wink

Thanks for the comments and I'm glad you enjoyed the read Smiley

The lower fees option is a nice incentive but we wanted to encourage acquiring new customers with the potential for additional margin through direct sales. The elimination of transaction fees is still a great selling point, but the point of this article was to emphasize other ways of leveraging the strengths of Bitcoin and pulling in new customers.

A response from you was inevitable and not really a major concern.
It sure is inevitable that I would be attracted to shoddy projects and push them to raise the bar. It's what I do. And why would it be a major concern unless you are hiding something? You're weird.

The current state of publishing is only the initial soft rollout online.
So in other words, it still isn't published, and you're just an electronic magazine at this point. There's nothing to be ashamed of from starting small, I just don't understand why you're trying to lie. Here you try to make it sound like you yourself aren't just an e-zine.

If there is another magazine (not eZine or "coming soon") about Bitcoin, I would like to know about it Smiley

By the way, you're not even the first e-zine. There was one a year ago and it actually sucked worse. I guess I should be glad the bar is rising at least.

I am not concerned with the checklist you are providing, we will proceed on our own merits.
And apparently proceed on your own reality as well. In our reality we call "lying" a deceptive business practice and it's typically frowned upon.
