Timeline.

Postby Jeremai » 27 May 2008, 01:06

Okay guys and girls! This is how it's going to happen. All the dates posted here should stick, but may change under special circumstances. Since the Admins and Mods were nice enough to grant me this forum, I am fulfilling their request to have this completed as soon as possible. Deadlines are tight everyone, we must all stick to them!

*Note* New dates may also be added if need be. They will be highlighted in blue to avoid confusion.

May 26
Voting on Magazine Name Begins.
Job applications begin.

May 30
Job applications should be submitted.*

May 31
Magazine title revealed.

June 1
Teams of writers, editors and designers are formed.
Magazine layout released.


June 6
Written articles and reviews are due.

June 9
Proofreading and editing on written work is due.
Written work is distributed to illustrators.

June 16
Illustrations and edited images are due.

June 20
Final page designs are due.

June 23
Magazine is completed, printed, and given to the delivery man.

After Geri receives the gift
A complete electronic copy will be made available for everyone one Denden!

*People are still welcome to apply after the work begins, as extra help may be required. The late applicants will be added to existing groups. However, if you submit your application late, then you are NOT guarenteed a position.

If you require a date be moved, please reply in the topic and I will decide whether or not it is reason enough to change the schedule.


IMPORTANT: IF YOU MISS YOUR DUE DATE WITH NO APPROVED PRIOR WARNING, YOU RELINQUISH YOUR POSITION TO ANOTHER MEMBER, AS WELL AS YOUR SPOT IN THE FAN LETTERS TO GERI.

I have a question, if we do not sign up to be a writer/editor etc., but we still chip in ideas, are we going to be able to receive a copy as well?

Unfortunately, this will not be made public to Denden (perhaps in the form of smaller non-printable versions, or watermarked).
If you wish to receieve a copy, you must help out. Fortunately, everyone who applies for a position will receive one! It might not be what you wanted, but I want everyone included! :)

but that's why previous attempts at gifts for geri flopped, because the "send something in"-deadline got pushed further and further. since there's nearly a week inbetween most steps and nothing has to be physically mailed in, i think its doable!

I agree that the dates seem soon, but at least it gives room if they do need to be changed once everything gets started, and it gives everyone motivation to get going so there will be less putting it off :)

Yeah, that's true. But, maybe we could push it back, like, a week or two, though? So then it will be summer for most people (ie. no school) and we'll all have more time to work on it.

Just apply! We don't judge anything. If you're not sure, just apply for as many as possible, and I'll make sure you get what is best for you. Obviously if your review is crap, but your story is good, then I'll put you as a journalist rather than a critic.

After a constructive dialogue with the men and women upstairs, the magazine will, indeed, be made public.
This will occur once Geri has receieved the final product!

If so, then yes, and I can add it to the necessary page.

Okay everyone, due to my job, I probably won't have the general layout and teams sorted out and posted until after Midnight (EST). Technically, that's June 1st, so I pushed that date back. It would be June first anyway for all over you living outside North America! :D
