    I agree main thing was that person running it had someone in admin team to go to get any resources sorted to help them but not for the admin to do any of the creation side.

    We agreed between us that should be one admin as contact on admin team if they need anyhelp and and rest of us admins will b*tt out.

    Just a note re: the whole coordination thing (as someone who has also tried and failed to get a similar project off the ground)... Get someone who can run with it and doesn't have any other responsibilities (like moderating, admin, etc.) and who knows how to delegate but also how to beat people around the head until they get stuff in.

    It's too easy for something else to take over and it needs someone who can run with it... Likewise I'd avoid worrying about advertising the first time around and just go with the current advertisers so you can prove its worth to them and other potential buyers before you worry about how you'll price up the subsequent ad's in the future.

    Oh, and just a small suggestion, attribution as always would be good.. as well as prizes, carrots, whatever to those who do actively contribute... This is, after all, a money making scheme too...

    That 'we' being the 'royal we' and it was decided yours truly would be the admin contact.

    The eagerness to take part so far is good. It would be nice to have our own EduPress writing for the EduMag. If all goes to plan I will simply need to check it before publishing to make sure that you guys haven't created an EduPron mag

    I didn't think we would get so much support. I'm guessing by the way the threads are going that Ric is going to be our contact?!

    Also, there's a new 'private' group called EduGeek Magazine. If you have posted here stating your interest then an invite is on the way to you.

    Do we have any sponsors of the forum who might be able to help us with printing for those who would want hard copies?

    Depends on how many people would want them... I could happily put my K8600 through the mill printing off copies so long as they were A4 booklet (ie: A3 media)... I can't do more than a few hundred and the matter of postage would need to be covered somehow.

    For the first edition though I'd make it electronic and folks can print it off on some teachers printer credits

    That gives the folks a bit more time to organise the hard copy version and a bit more ammunition in terms of downloads, numbers, etc... to be able to get the backing they need.

    In reality, the hard part is going to be getting the content. If that can be organised and proven then the rest will follow easily so why make life harder than it needs to be?

  14. Thanks to contink from:

    Yeah - After taking some time to think about it I think we'll run the first issue (at least) on digital format only so we can get idea's of how many hard copies we will need (if any).

    I would be willing to write some articles...

    I am a programmer with good scripting abilities? I am also a bit of an RM Geek... (one of the schools I support is CC3-->CC4 - maybe a CC4 Hands-on thing?)
