My review: This is my old ad (for this zine).  I personally think this ad really needs
some definate revamping.  From this ad you can tell the editor does not have much
creativity and the zine probably dosn't have a good layout.  Cool subscribe link and
gives enough info on the zine-all it needs is some creativity and orgination, it looks
so uneven and disorganized.  RATE:
4/10

My revamp:

|*|-- .003. Zine Layouts
  Send your layouts in!
just send me a regular issue

Column header: 
-----------  MY LeTTeR!  -  a s  l o n g  a s  y o u  l o v e  m e
I give the header a big fat 9/10 I really like it, she could've
added a little more origionality but there is not much lack of
creativity, headers should not be too done up.
Column lettering: 
Put whatever you want to say here... 
Ok, this majorly lacks creativity.  Same old black color-talk about
unorigional.  With some layouts plain black lettering looks good-but
overall this layout lacks a little bit of color.  The lettering gets a 5/10
Divider (s): 
[NO DIVIDER]
NO DIVIDER?! Well, this sure takes some points off, but remember- a
divider is not always needed.  But, again, in this layout, color is a
nessesscity. 5/10
Overall rating: 6.5/10 
The way I get the overall rating is by adding the rating of colmn header,
column lettering, divider and overall apperance and dividing it by 4-making it into a average. 

So I this layout wound up getting a 5 out of ten becasue most of all- it
needed more color and attraction.  It lacked creativity not so much as
origionality. But overall it was a decent layout.

Editors' Questions
QUESTION: What's the easiest way to alphabetize your address book?

ANSWER: The easiest way to organize your subscriber list (address book) is to
alphabetize it.  The best and quickest way to do that is to put the
names in one line in the program called Microsoft Word.  EX:
Screename1
User8
Playa144

After listing them, (you can copy and paste from address book)
highlight all the words and then you can go up to the "TABLE" menu
and scroll down to "SORT."  Under sort choose "paragraphs" for
sort by, and choose "text" under type then click OK and you'll have
an alphabetized subscribe list. 

YOU HELP OUT:
Now it's your turn to help out an editor:

the basic stuff. What do you suggest?

|*|-- .006. Quick-Tips
Send in your zine tips!

*:- Be patient with a creating a new zine:
By this I mean that when you create a new zine you should swap as
many ads as you can but then just ::wait:: for your subscriber list to be
full, don't hold the first issue back just because you have only 60
subscribers.  The word gets out when the issue gets out.

*:- Create ads by yourself-the editor:
Because this shows soon-to-be-subscribers how creative and
dedicated you are to your zine which will make them subscribe
knowing they'll recieve an eye-appealing zine.

|*|-- .008.    Zine Gripes
   I got something to grip about...

* Useless reasons
I hate when zine editors create a zine just cuz they're bored and don't take the
time to create a good layout or anything they just make it to kill time. 


 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  


|*|-- .009. G2G - Got to Go

Well, that's all for the first issue of THE.editors'.Headquarters.  Hope you
all enjoyed and like the layout/colors etc. And especially the content. 
But I bet some of you have reasons to or not to like this zine so if you
would please answer one quick poll for me.  And don't forget to send
in stuff for the next issue!


1.) What kind of columns would you like to see in this zine?
I'd like to see...
