MAGSAN Announcement!
« on: 13 Aug 2016, 22:49 »
I'm hereby announcing:



You might be asking yourself, what is MAGSAN?
Well I'll tell you!

It's the Monthly AGS Archives Newsletter, which will have a new issue published on the last day of every month.
It will showcase each game made in AGS released that month, announce next months MAGS rules, and feature articles written by AGSers.
(If you're interested in writing any AGS related articles at any point give me a shout!)

It will also announce any new AGS releases (possibly even as a standalone "issue" if it makes more sense), and any other AGS related news from that month.

Some of you stumbled upon it when viewing the new AGS Archives site, for those who didn't, you can all sign up via the form in the footer on the site: https://agsarchives.com.

If anyone feel like helping in any way, give me a shout! Any extra help will be highly appreciated :)

This sounds excellent! As most of you will know, I've not been very active on the forums lately - although I do still lurk on a regular basis - it's been so long my avatar broke :sad: A regular feature like this would be very welcome :smiley:

Seriously though, it's really appreciated that so many of you actually are interested in this! :).
All though not a huge amount, the amount of subscribers already is enough to encourage me to keep this going for months to come!

Again, if anyone is interested in contributing with content in any way, let me know! :)
Thanks to all those who have already offered!

Congratulations on a great-looking first issue! 8-)

@SilverSpook - can't speak for anyone else but I had no issues... I take it you've checked if your email client has put it in the Junk folder by mistake?

Hooray for the first issue making it! I definitely approve of having the Mags theme and the "Games released this month" sections, very sensible ideas. I wonder if you could have a section for "Games announced this month" similar to the "announced" section with screenshots as well as links, rather than just links in the editorial?

Thanks for giving this a shot, and extra thanks for the link to my little thing! I hope this newsletter takes off! :smiley:
