QB Express Issue #8 Now Available

Nah, no resentment here. Smile

I understand your point, and I agree that some of the articles that I publish really suck.

But I just can't bring myself to throw out articles that people have gone through the trouble to write and send in, and still call this a "community" magazine. It's not like the writers are paid professionals who are hired to turn in a high-quality articles -- they're volunteers that just want to share their ideas and knowledge with others, usually for the benefit of the community. And I don't see any good in blocking people from doing that.

So it kind of annoys me when people complain about the quality of the magazine when it's their choice to read it -- and also when they have a hand in making it.

Besides, if you (or anyone else) really think you can do a better job, by all means -- do it! I'd be ecstatic if there were another (active) QB/FB magazine running right now. I didn't start QB Express because I enjoy making it (putting this magazine together is a bitch) -- I started it because I wanted to benefit the Qmunity.

However, while I will not block articles from getting printed, I am not opposed to EDITING their articles to make them more easy to read and understand. Not everyone is a great writer, so helping them better articulate their ideas would benefit the magazine immensely.

At the moment, I do very few edits, since I simply don't have enough time to go through each article and fix spelling errors / grammar, revise sentences, clarify things, etc. I only fix problems when I see them as I put the magazine together, but I don't go through the mag searching for problems to fix.

So if someone wants to edit articles, let me know. I'm all for having a higher-quality magazine, as long as it doesn't violate the integrity of my "open community magazine" policy.
