Well, Not only was there a lack of content for an issue one, but nothing submitted for the issue two (see the outline post for details). This freaking kills me on many levels, but truth be told, I expected this to happen. I do want to offer my deepest thanks to & for actually coming up with content for this issue currently in development hell. I admit, this is all my fault for both wanting to do something that I thought the community would have liked while also working a job and having current family affairs that cut my free time a week down to mere handful of hours (60+ hour work weeks plus taking care of someone with cancer while being a chronic migraine sufferer... what the hell made me this this was a good idea).
Now the problem isnt so much length of the issue itself (Over 14 pages so far which is good ) but rather the type of content. Other then one article (provided by SenorIncognito69), it's 3 manips and 3 stories (not at all linked). Going for the magazine feel, with a lack of actual articles this completely goes against the original intended feel. I have had a few people express interest in writing articles up, yet when I explain what I am looking for (really, go back and read the original 2 issues to get the feel I am going for, its all there) nothing comes from it. I get that this is my vision and that isnt an easy sell to make, much less when it is not monetized so it's free labor. It kills me a little that people showed such an interest from that first announcement then just dropped it like a brick. There has been another more minor issue that has come up but one that I have taken efforts in working around; The first two issues were originally done in MSword, with my current computer though it lacks Office and I could drop the cash on it, but if there isnt any hope for this project then there would be no need for me to do so, plus Im seeing about alternate programs such as open office.
Honestly I dont know what to do, this was suppose to be a phoenix rising from the ashes reborn once more, instead we got cold coals and ash...
Again, my heart goes out to & for actually coming up with content for this issue. I just have no foreseeable release date at this time. I said to my close friend and artist that I have long since been a die hard fan of cqmorrell that I fear WildSide could be the death of me. Granted that wont be the death of me, poor life choices, unhealthy eating and stress will be.
Then again, as this is a magazine about TF content, it could change and I get a slew of content for an issue in the next week, who can say. It wont happen, but its a nice thought.
