    .... This means that Scrapie can take your part? :/
    He's not a native speaker aswell, so he can only do the front page ...

    WE NEED A CORRECTOR :/

    Yap, I could take part :D But, as I said I actually dont really know where I could help :D And I guess, if I am going to write a page or something I will definatly take the dict.cc and my grammar english-book to make it as perfect as possible :p

    That's not the point, we've got people for grammar and stuff, they correct your pages before you post them.

    You could do what Cyril should have done, namely the front page, with the name, the logo, the contents and so on. Try to make it look like a professional magazine (Yes Cyril ;D)

    I'll still be the editor. Just send me the pages when the whole magazine is done, I don't like it in sections.

    I made a group and rank first.
    I only changed rank for you (you're still in the group, but it's not default) so it doesn't cover your red name, but underneath instead of Jr. Mod it says Gimper Staff. Work on forums now.

    Baum i am doing News, Index page, and the logo design
    Next issue ill do, News, Index, and scripts, and filters. As we shouldn't need another logo.
    BTW, Bankai did you get the logo png yet? And you will have to decide on colors every issue.Something pro looking simple is the best way to go.

    Gimper Staff, lets do this...
    Lets get the cover set, then go from there. After the cover is all designed and good to go, we will do index.
    Also what i would like to do in the very first issue is a brief history on Gimp, how it began and all that stuff.
    I already have the info, just need Gimper Staff approval.

    Also, i need Gimper Staff approval on asking PhotoMaster for some kick arse G'MIC art work.
    You should see some of his designs at Gimp Chat.

    One more thing, how do you feel about bringing in more mag help from Oregonian at Gimp Chat?
    This person is very, very knowledgeable about Gimp, and i think would be quite a addition to the Gimper Staff.

    So in a nutshell i need
    Approval on a history page layout
    Approval on PMs artwork
    Approval on Oregonian as a Gimper Staff member

    All approved say aye..or i or something like that.
