The massive initial effort and commitment put into the Heretic Ezine has dwindled in recent months to the point that nothing is being posted.
Red Orc has identified the need for change and, with a little pressing from me
has agreed to take on the editors responsibility.
This isn't to say we aren't grateful for the efforts of Djinn24 and his staff, far from it. They've given us a solid foundation to build from.
Changes need to be made though, the forums are full of ideas, suggestions and distracting chit chat which ultimately got out of control and grounded the entire effort.
Red Orc and I have had a lengthy discussion and begun the reshuffling process.
The Heretic needs a new approach to give it the best chance of success, to this end the new submission process will be streamlined. Rather than a huge team of writers and editors we will be accepting submissions from everyone. Each article will be reviewed and feedback given. If it is good then the dedicated Heretic staff will work with the author to produce a final draft for publication.
Anyone can submit an article to the Ezine via our new Heretic Submissions
forum. From here you'll gain regular updates and advice on how to improve your article. If we see potential you can guarantee it'll be published in a future issue. However if it is not what we are looking for then you will be told. We don't want to waste people's time to save hurt feelings. All submissions to this forum are private, so no-one except yourself and the handful of ezine staff will be able to read it until it's published.
So, if you have an article idea write up a draft and post it to the Heretic Submissions
Note: If you have already posted an article in the hidden forums check to see if your thread is in the Heretic Submissions forum. If it is, congratulations, with a few adjustments and improvements it'll be ready for publication.
