Well speaking from experience you would have to have dedicated people working on it. If one person stops working the whole thing falls apart. Also, I think you mean "E-Magazine" since printing actual magazines is out of the question, maybe having a email subscription list for people who want to read it? Anyway, to get this organized you must have a list of people who are willing to do tasks, such as.

Organizer (Puts all the articles in order)
Editor (Edits articles)
Artist (draws?)
People who write articles (Such as game reviews)
Interviews
etc.

I can help out, but it will take a lot of work.

Well what would you want to do?

Every magazine NEEDS article writers, such as game reviewers and previewers, articles about systems and upcoming games, and INTERVIEWS. A respectable magazine should also have art. But I think that DGAF should decide what goes in the magazine, if there will be a magazine.

Sounds like a good idea, i was thinking about doing this before the release of the game but seemed like lots of work.

If you guys are serious and want to go ahead with this then by all means you have my blessing, just let me know what you need.

Ps. i wont be able to help out so much as i have a lot on at the moment (just bought a 360 :p)

So I guess this is the official BB magazine. In my opinion, the best way to do this is to release an issue every month. If we have dedicated workers, we can pull this off, one issue a month is not that big. But we need to decide how we will distribute this, maybe create a down loadable acrobat reader file? We would post this in a thread every month so people can read it...We also need to decide  sections, articles, reviews, art, interviews etc....Anybody want to share ideas?
