For their first issue, the folks over at Bitcoin Magazine did a superb job.
I only have two issues with the first issue, one of which has been duly noted and should be corrected, but can't recall if my other concern has been addressed.
- InK Smudging (will be resolved)
- Paragraphs are too long. Breaking it up a tad would make a better reading experience.
My hope is not necessarily to point out any negatives of Bitcoin Magazine, albeit that's exactly what I just did above, but to have us all suggest improvements, unique features, interview suggestions (something I've already started)
It would be appreciated if trolling were kept to a bear minimum on this thread. I don't believe I've ever used the Report to moderator
option before, but I may do that if a snide post warrants such an action. I would love to have this thread be as constructive as possible for the betterment of Bitcoin via Bitcoin Magazine, PR'ed by my good friend and fellow Hoosier
Matthew N. Wright.
Some of the better suggestions I will post here in the OP below.
With that, I now present a couple ideas to get the ball a rollin'.Monthly Contest
(no clue what the prize(s) may be):
Take a quick look at this: http://www.country-magazine.com/contests/
The two that came to mind prior to me re-viewing that page are the Needle in the Haystack
and Clever Caption
contests. The Clever Caption contest is self-explanatory. The Needle in the Haystack may require a tad more imagination, but I do feel that it should include the ad images, thus having more eyeballs looking at the ads, hence that's a/the primary revenue source.
Incorporate inspirational quotes throughout the magazine. I will expand upon this idea later.
At least one fine article on cryptography in general and how it impacts our everyday lives.
I have another suggestion that I'm keeping under wraps till later.
That's it for starters. I, and hopefully those at Bitcoin Magazine, look forward to all your fine suggestions.
