SNK Tournament Magazine
« on: May 29, 2011, 09:46:00 PM »
I don't know if this would be a good idea or not, but I would recommend the use of user contributed digital print media in both improving the quality of our community and to help report tournament results to people who would otherwise just forget about message boards in general.  Presented well, digital distribution magazines can be exciting and detailed as just posting text and match vids days later after a tournament.

Some details:

1. I want to take this to two languages, English and Spanish.

2. Each issue there will be a letter from someone important to the SNK scene, thanking them for their time and commitment to the community.

3. Each issue there will be a interview with a top player chronicling their rise in their chosen game.

4. Each issue will highlight some of the best SNK tournaments from around the globe(with pictures).

5. Finally, there will be a couple of user submitted articles about SNK games (NOT REVIEWS) depending on space available.

Target size per issue: 40 pages.

Good thinking Sanji. What you've got is good so far, and maybe enough for what's suggested now. Other than something like community polling, game/character/etc. highlighting, can't think of anything to add, but right now you can count me as one of the ones who like it.

I could be in for this project. I just returned from entrance test of journalism and jorunalism intrests me very much. So I would get some experience, if journalism is my career choice.

I'm interested in this, but every aspect of a tournament should be taken into consideration, like "why did you pick this character"??? Go in depth with that character or characters and the best/worst matchups perhaps... Things like that can allow the reader to see the intricacies of picking a character, especially if a character is considered "weak" or "low tier" like 2k2UM's Vanessa "was"... I'm sure this alone will be a couple of pages, and given that this is to span several SNK fighters, this could also prove interesting, or boring if everyone whores K'/Raiden/other top tier, unless they all have a different perspective like Raiden's dropkick mindgame vs some other aspect of Raiden (tick throws/mixups?)...

If it's an actual web page, it should be able to become auto translated with the right resource...
