    It's good to know that the admins tried it - must mean there is a demand for it.

    Perhaps a Q&A kind of area with questions posted from this forum, the most popular for the month or something similar.

    Having issues dedicated to certain topics or software that would be useful in schools at little cost. Just basically making sure that people know, who don't have time, what is available and how they can do it!

    My business shall be hopefully up and running a bit more within the next 3 to 4 months so i'm hoping I can make a contribution to the cause financially, I'm not promising anything but it would certainly something I would like to do.

    And the cryptic email I received suddenly starts to make more sense!

    The kind of articles I have in mind are things like how to's for schools. I.E. "The perfect terminal server setup" and things like that.

    Obviously there will be more content than what I have just said - but that will be up to the contributors and subscribers.

    As I say - 3 months should be plenty for contributors to do their thing. But as it is volunteers I expect no more than "I'd like to write an article on this, but only when I have time"

    As a tiny pointer ... things like 'how-to' guides ... it would be nice if they were also put into wiki.

    I would also suggest that the articles are contributed under a Creative Commons agreement so that people know that their article may be re-used but attribution will be kept.

    It might be nice to collate all the articles and and guides already written in a bank so that you can put some 'classic' articles in every so often (handy for padding out a slow issue too!)

    The magazines will certainly be saved in an online deposit - so they can be grabbed whenever needed.

    I wouldn't mind touching on reviewing some Primary School software. I'm sure theres a few people in the Primary Social Group who wouldn't mind giving some input there too.

    Hehe, I've always wanted my own column (though I guess that means it has to be more than a one-off )

    Well, hopefully if we can get enough contributors we will be able to change the columns as and when contributors feel the need to write something.

    That way PowderMonkey, you only write a column when you have something to talk about - meaning the finished magazine will be better as you are not being 'forced' to write on a 3-monthly basis which may be made up of BS.

    Where as if you WANT to write about something for an edition then your article would be better.

    I'm not making sense am I?!
