Welcome!

Hello everyone, if you were one of the lovelies that commented encouragingly in response to our pitch for The Global Explorer online magazine then you probably know what we're all about already, if not then have a looky at our info page, it's all on there.

The cut off point for ideas for the first issue is today!
No need to pitch again on here though, if you commented on the post in calmallamadown then your ideas have been duly noted.

At the end of today I'll post a list of all the ideas pitched and who's nabbed them so if you could just confirm that you are indeed going to proceed with that idea, that would be awesome for us to get planning with.

The deadline for everything for Issue 1 is next weekend, but more info on that when we know what we're dealing with.

Get working guys, this magazine is going to be tweed and gouda wonderment..!

No no! What are your ideas? It's just that we have heaps of offers already and we don't want to run dry in future issues, we need to spread it about if you know what I mean? What did you have in mind?

They sound like good ideas although I do have a minor issue. The Global Explorer was set up in response to 'Cheekbone' magazine because of the standard and quality of writing in there and just reading your comment full of 'textspeak' sent shivers down my spine as this is exactly what we were hoping to avoid. Don't get me wrong, I don't hold a particularly prescriptivist attitude towards language but this does go against the whole idea The Global Explorer is based on: The even newer boosh lifestyle magazine, written by fans with spell check. If you could write these pieces in Standard English then that would be awesome, it was just seeing your comment that worried me a little!

lol
