    Also, most magazines have an edge over something. They usually have new news in them, not just old news and some commentary. We have an entire USN full of news with commentary from every walk of life. Why do we need a magazine about this? If you have access to a virtual magazine you probably have access to this site.

    As for our Podcast, it's because it's open discussion. Plus it's constantly updated. It's more of a "talk radio" thing. It takes away the cold detachment of having an internet between two people and it's a bit more human. Like honestly, do you think I talk and act like this in real life? Fuck no. I'm completely different, minus my general opinions.

    Also, you may as well make a thread saying "I want to be promoted to some position of minor power" and cut out all the sweet talk.

    You're still advertising it like you're the boss hog.

    Please tell me who this "member of a higher power" is. It's certainly not me and if it's anything news related, I'm sure it would've gone through the Mag Staff one way or another. Unless you just mean "someone more popular than you".

    So you're just pawning this idea off to someone else to avoid doing any work and still got a lot of the credit?

    I should start doing this...

    I voted "No" coz I think its not the best time to do so when most of the high powered staff are busy with new forum and server upgrade.
    Also I think if this idea gets applied,maybe this will all go on to the Magzine staff.
    They've much work to do,So "NO"

    I think if this idea gets applied, the Magazine Staff most definitely will not be involved.

    I'm just saying it's an utterly redundant idea. We already have news in our forums and news we post that has discussion and opinion going on. Why would we want a magazine on even older news with opinions and discussion we already have in the same medium? At least Podcasts are done by voice and give a more human feel, and we do invite members here to go on it.

    I will go along with this idea as long if you interview me, and it has to be a 5 page exclusive.

    EDIT: Title "Prowler reveals all, is he really Prowlsexual!?!" GUILDS TITLE IS BETTER.

    Yes, as long as I may write reviews. I had an idea for a GBAtemp magazine early previous year,(Maybe Another World may remember it.) but i did not have to much time for that since I did not have the editor programs etc.

    But I ama ble to write pretty reviews if needed. :P And if they don't except it, let's make it unofficial like Sc00p was.

    Cool idea but I dont really see the point with the fact that most of those devices can visit the site already If anything I think they should improve the mobile site instead of making a magazine but still this should be tucked away somewhere its not a bad idea :3

    A better idea would be to get Terminator and iFish to have their own podcast.

    EDIT: And than have me verbally abuse them.

    No, because it's a stupid idea. The forum works and we have a news section.

    There's no "Meh" option, and calling your own idea "awesome" is kind of a silly thing to do.


    The way people are acting (calling Tagzard a stupid kid for example) would be completely different if someone like Guild posted the idea, and they all know it.

    because we all know that Guide would pull his (her) own weight and make it happen. TZ isnt gonna do that.
