Hello everyone!

I am going to commence publishing a weekly Martian report. I shall name it the forgotten "The Weekly Martian." It will talk about the initiation, progress, and  fulfillment of various Martian activities regarding the forum, in-game events, worlds, and maybe some extra topics about your individual enterprises (programming/coding? game designing? etc.). We could also write short stories, give weekly tips, and make all sorts of fun mini articles.
 
I have yet to decide which formatting template I will use for such a lofty weekly project. (I may not even use a specific design)
 
This is how I plan to run The Weekly Martian:
 
1. This newsletter would comprise of my own articles and hopefully some others by fellow Martians. With my approval, you can go right ahead constructing your desired article and finding the picture(s) you want included.
2. After you PM me your finished article (with pictures attached), I will revise them. I do not intend on rewriting what you've said unless the language is truly obnoxious–which I'm sure won't be a problem.
3. The Weekly Martian will be released on Fridays.
 
Hopefully, we can assemble one solid page per week. In fact, that would be an outstanding accomplishment for this small community.
 
My goal: Have fun, practice writing and formatting skills, work together as a community, and make an interesting newsletter to read.
 
Please tell me what you think, and feel free to ask questions :)
 
 
Cheers,
 
 
Eric

YES!!!!!!

I am happy now.
Thanks for reviving this. Too bad I wasn't here for the old one, but I've still seen some not hidden ones...

My individual enterprises include table tennis, StarCraft, and table tennis. None of which are really worthy things to be writing about...

I LOOK FORWARD TO READING THIS.

I would love to give out lessons on HTML coding. You know, for the newbies. The 'me' newbies.

OMG!!!
 
Dude, that would be epic. I wasn't around to see FlyClub's original Weekly Martian, so I'm super excited to see you bringing it back!
 
 
You have my support!
 
 
(If you need any help coming up with something, I'll most likely be able to help. Just PM me.)
 
Thanks so much!

You didn't ask me to make an article, nor does it even pertain to Mars.
 
I'll probably put it in, though. I appreciate the effort.

Oh well I meant for you to make me an article. Uhhh...
 
 
And it does pertain to mars. Learning how to HTML code can benifite you in the forums.

I would like one. Inspired by Picard, who I am not sure if he's on or not, I would like to write a section. (I'll PM you each week.)
 
"The Weekly Drama." I will write a short segment of a story each week, eventually ending it, and starting a new one. 
 
Tell me what you think?

Your article has a follower.
Space: My favourite thing.
I'm often referred to by friends as the space core (Portal 2) as a joke =P

When will the weekly martian start? If you don't already have enough articles, then I doubt it will work.

Bit late to the party, but I can do some formatting/publishing work and have the finished result as a professional looking pdf, if anyone's interested.
