EMG-Zine blathers/planning...

EMG-Zine-y things to do

Assign folks to report on conventions, readings, panels, etc.

Find out legalities of quoting/summarizing public appearances. - Assign someone to do an article on this and get two for one.

Ask Penmage about doing more reviews. Attempt to bribe her with something. Interrogate close friends for known weaknesses.

Write Pricing Merchandise article

Follow up with a few folks who've got articles out for review/edits.

Ask Jayde about possibly doing a hat article.

Send Annie roses. Send the whole staff of EMG-Zine roses.

Make sure folks know they can use their credit at any time. Set them up at the lilypad. (Review the submission order of events involving the lilypad. May have to give artists access to the lilypad before paperwork goes in - then they can put their login name on the paperwork? Gawd, totally don't want to have to reissue the paper contracts. It was tough enough getting folks to renew their online contracts. One artist I had to plant in front of the computer with a lilypad login page up on the screen. You know who you are! I'm a little sad about some of the ones who seem to have decided not to renew and hope that something awful hasn't happend.)

Site Stuff

Maybe merge lilypad and EMG-Zine backends??? More trouble than it's worth, probably. And it's good to have eggs in different baskets, so to speak. (Maybe, eventually, an auto-all login that will log you into your emg-zine/lilypad/PA site/EMG wishlist [coming], forums and all that is shiny...)

Set site up so that a comment link goes to the letter page from every article (is it already?)

Set up page that auto-synths the news submissions.

Set up automatic drawing page. I should be able to just specify a design and product, plus add extra text, html allowable (for polls!). (Look into that awesome rtf text input script at Fantastic Portfolios.*)

Set up application page for positions/volunteers.

Modify calendar program to be prettier and link to corresponding forum link for comments and reviews at the FP Salon.

Sun brainstorms:

Sundae - sun at the top of an ice cream sundae like a cherry

Something Torn Wold that involves long summers.

*What, you thought I'd forgotten about Fantastic Portfolios? Hardly... I'm just planning my attack... but the 1st comes, er, first.
