    Re: Help me make a free 'buntu emag...

    hi there! my internet connection went down the other day so i wasn't here.
    i said i'll rewrite the article with banshee. well... i didn't do that yet. and i'll probabaly won't do it until monday, because it's easter and i want to concentrate on other things.
    i've read through all the posts wirtten.

    stoian, people here don't write gramatical english because it's faster. the magazine however will be written properly.
    i see we've grown and i'm enjoying the digg.com thing. very nice how many people are taking interest in this project. also i like that people actually started writing articles on the wiki.

    about the licence i agree with it.

    may i suggest to make an #ubuntu-mag channel on freenode? that would make things much easier in the future when this forum will start to be too slow. but i think this is not needed now. maybe later.

    happy easter everyone! cheers!

    I personally think this is a good idea if the channel can be logged in irc logs so that those not present at the time can catch anything said without them.

    The creative commons issue is an interesting one, the cc version you suggest is fine if you are going to edit the content authors have submitted for the mag, but this very reason why one has already publicly decided not to contribute. I personally feel that if individuals wanted to post an article without editting by a third party then they should be able to add a stronger copyright/cc version on it. This is not to say that the author cannot amend the article themselves and resubmit, that way they keep the licence in tact.

    I think both these ideas are good, maybe we should also elect someone to go through the log every 24 hours, and post the main points here. This would also save people having to trawl through the log (If they don't want to), and allow people without IRC to catch up quickly.

    Hello:

    I finished reading though this thread and like to let all of you know that you are doing a good job, getting this thing started. I have only one comment to make though, since I read something that was very disturbing to me. Which was requiring the people that wrote the articles to comply to the standards specified by the documentation team for ubuntu documentation.

    This is a very bad idea, since it will restrict the free exchange of ideas. I am under the impression since this is a electronic publication that it is not for profit and not accept advertising.

    In documentation you want to make it seem like as few people as possible wrote it, even if hundreds of people wrote it. This isn't documentation; For example, you can use either compile the source from a tar-ball, download a debain package from debian, use sudo apt-get or synaptic from Gnome who cares they all do the same thing. Which is install a software package on your system.

    Technical restrictions on the content of the articles is going to make them dry and boring [in other words just like documentation].

    Good Work People;
    Peace

    Hi feravolo

    The document your referring to is a guideline and i take it as just that... a guide, line. It's just a point of reference for writing an article. I would NEVER knock back an article because it doesn't conform to the ubuntu documentation standards!

    Once we get #0 out and get the website up and running, get an IRC channel and then we can get all the magazine rules set up as there is quite a bit of confusion between people at times...

    I was hoping that you would say that, please take no offense. I would like to help contribute to the magazine some time in the future, I am currently coming up to speed with the different flavors of Ubuntu and the Groovy programming language.

    I am looking forward to the first issue,

    Mike
