Future of the Newsletter

Future Issues of the Newsletter, and Changes to the Format
The Newsletter is officially back after it's long hiatus, and it is here to stay. Future issues may continue to change in format as we adjust things that either work or don't. If you have suggestions on information you would like to see, or information you just don't find helpful, send us a note. PM Raal and Squidziod with your suggestions. In addition to these upcoming changes, we would like to make a special note that we are still accepting community produced pieces to feature in the Newsletter. If you have an article of some kind you would like us to see, please let us know. Unfamiliar with what to submit us? Look below for guidelines and above in "Featurette" for an example.

What will we accept?
Anything that is Forum appropriate but here are a few examples.
  • Publish an IC story? Can do so. However please keep length in mind here. If its too long it may not get featured. Also if it is already featured on the forums in the Tales of Altera section, likelihood of it being shown is small.
  • Roleplay/Writing Tips? Everyone on the server even our best writers can benefit from these sorts of things.
  • Advertise your City, Town or organization? Write a small piece advertising it and we will publish it for you.
  • Useful Basement Threads- Cooking Tips, Movie, TV shows, and or game reviews could also be published
Want to enter something for next month's Newsletter? PM Raal and Squidziod

QnA - [Will be expanded as/if we receive questions]
  1. What if I'm not that great of a writer but I can make a video? We will publish it so long as your video doesn't break forum rules.
  2. What about Art submissions? A limited amount of art may be advertised as well. If one person is highlighted one issue they likely won't be highlighted the next issue so feel free to continue submitting art each cycle.
