UG Amplified - Issue 01

This is the first issue of UG Amplified, the community webzine. Its written and produced entirely by UGers recruited from the forums, and can showcase the extensive creative and intellectual prowess of ordinary users.

Weve had a terrific response for the first issue - in 10 days weve had 40 people sign up, design the zine and fill it with content on subjects ranging from music to politics.

Anyone can write for UG Amplified, just e-mail me or post here, and Ill invite you to the Group to work out your piece.

It's pretty good. My only problem is that it needs some colour to it. It's just walls of text. A few pictures and cool font here and there wouldn't go amiss.

I'm contemplating doing a review. Thing is I'd be more in the style of ZeroPunctuation in text form.

Seconded. A less-plain cover would have been nice, as well.
But, hey... Considering this was done in such a short amount of time, I think it turned out fantastic.

Cool, I heard Levvy talk about it a few days ago so I'll give this a good read once my brain starts functioning again Heck, I might even submit an article (though it's going to take ages with my shit grammar and story-writing skills) or pop-up with ideas for a lay-out.

Btw, where did you make the file in, MS Word?

FOR THOSE NOT SEEING THE LINK:

It's the big yellow text saying "LINK," right under TS's e-mail.

It can be missed because it looks like part of his sig.

Bro, it's okay. The numbers are in a silly order. It's really not a big deal.
