Ideas and writers wanted!

I’m trying out a new idea which I hope will make it easier for readers to suggest articles and for writers to get ideas.

LaunchPad

I’ve created a Full Circle project, and a Full Circle team, on LaunchPad. The idea being that non-writers can go to the project page, click ‘Answers‘ at the top of the page, and leave your article ideas, but please be specific with your idea! Don’t just put ‘server article’, please specify what the server should do!

Readers who fancy writing an article, but aren’t sure what to write about, can register on the Full Circle team page then assign article ideas to themselves and get writing! I would ask that if you can’t get the article written within several weeks (a month at most) that you reopen the question to let someone else grab the idea.

I hope that this will let you good folks participate more!  :)

Full Circle Magazine in print! – sort of

OK, so it’s not an issue of Full Circle that’s in print, but an ad in a main stream magazine is! Behold:

That’s right folks, we have a full page ad in the latest issue of Ubuntu User magazine (issue #05, page 43)!

Ubuntu User is helping spread the word about FCM, so we’re helping spread the word about them, hence the banner at the top of the site.
