No, or at least I don't think so. I had a piece or two nominated for Open Mic of the Month but the mods above said it was trashed due to lack of interest. :(

I guess if people aren't showing interest and trying harder in this kind of shit, why should the mods bother opening shit up if so many people are gonna disrespect, or at least ignore it?

If I knew I was going to have to waste this much time explaining why we scrapped the OM of the month when there is a specific thread for that exact conversation I might've kept the fucking thing going.

And now we're off topic. So either post in this thread concerning an actual offer to help (which doesn't include vagueries) or get a ban.

I am very willing to give active demonstrations to anyone who doesn't understand.

Yup, moving on.

I'd be very happy to run a tournament in the future whenever a new tournament is wanted.. I've run 2 tournies before elsewhere, so it's not like I'm in the dark with it all. Hit me up whenever a new tournament is required, and I'd be happy to help with it or even run it.

Well, I did offer to help, but I got ignored. You are way too strict, fucking relax, it's a forum not a concentration camp.

KS banned for a day for free posting.

Offers are all noted, just because I don't go OMG OMG OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH doesn't mean I'm ignoring them.

As I believe I said before, we'll be considering them after Heat Wave is completed.

i really enjoy reading those magazines (not from here as i havent seen one yet, but from other sites). I think i understand how to put them together based on what i've read. i'd like to write up a mag for the open mic if you want. being the new guy, i understand theres a show and prove kind of thing but again, i've read a few very good magazine and i would love to actually write one. lemme know.

The open mic wouldn't be the right place for it (unless you did in rhyme form) but the way I'm thinking in my mind would be a board for magazine style content so you would be very welcome to contribute

oh yo want to do a site-wide mag? i haven't read any of those yet and would imagine it will take some effort, but i'm down to help. I was referring to mags for individual forums. I know yall don't like to mention sites but the site i signed up on, they had a mag in the open mic. it was pinned so people can just look through it. there were piece breakdown. top 5. archive spotlight etc. it was very cool to read. But yea a site-wide mag, i'd imagine would be much more difficult to construct.

As he said we have been discussing a separate board for the magazine content. However, since we don't have that yet. If you guys put something together for it, I will be willing to sticky it up. No harm in putting work in for the site. 

However, on the flip side, if it is getting no attention from other members and your hark work is getting wasted, I don't see how long it goes on for. You have a thumbs up on my end for now and it could be something to mix in and bring the OMOTM back into play. But if you guys are gonna do it, then do it, don't just say it. Thumbs Up
Go my Minions!

So...I said I would be back after Heat Wave finished to review the offers. Just turns out it took a little longer than we all envisioned...

Looking at the current state of play I've delivered Heat Wave, created Battle Royale (please go and sign up), created the LA magazine and continued to operate The Gauntlet for those of you who were interested. As well as try to direct traffic on the Open Mic a little better with the sticky thread I created.

I think we have some good ideas in here, particularly the Roast concept as well as a BL3. What I feel we need from the community right now are these three things:

1. Giving feedback on Heat Wave so we can learn the lessons and put on better tourneys/events in the future.

So far I've had 0 feedback which means I will have to rely on my own thoughts going forward. That's fine, but I want everyone to have the opportunity to give their honest opinions.

2. Taking the opportunity to ensure we have a thriving magazine section.

This is the first real initiative when I'm putting the ball almost entirely in your court. I'm not going to submit any content, if you guys want this site to be interesting/entertaining and have extra elements like this then you need to make it work.

3. People to step up and be counted.

Thankfully lots of people offered help first time around, now is the time for you guys to deliver on those good intentions. That can either be something big like running The Roast or something smaller like committing in your head to spend 20 mins reading/feeding open mics. It will all add up to making LA a better place.

Thanks

Hey Cuba I don't mind re-starting The Gauntlet thing if it's not a bad idea '.. Like I don't mind offering weekly "challenges" to the whole of L.A. or to individual members who are happy to compete/co-operate in them..
