    Hey Entropians,

    The release of the first EntropiaTimes Online Magazine September 2010 was a big success - and even bigger was the printed version of the magazine, which we were offering.

    Soon the next issue of EntropiaTimes will be released (12th of December 2010), with a huge ROCKtropia theme, but also other Entropia-related interviews and articles. Our Media Team is working like crazy to create some awesome interviews for you guys - and I'm working on the layouts including a few other surprises ;)

    Last time we optimistically offered the magazine for the amount of $15 USD including shipping. Unfortunately, the magazine itself showed to be more expensive to print than estimated because of the thicker quality paper used, the huge amount of nice colored pages and the small number of magazines printed.

    We wanted the price to be set, so the cost for the magazine was paid since we do not have any intentions of earning on the sale. However, the costs to make it and ship it was more than the price of $15 USD, which means we paid the rest from own pockets. We have no problems having done this for the first magazine, because we had to try it out - we didn't know what to expect either (order wise) - and it was ALL worth it

    We do have to set up the price to $18 USD instead of $15 USD next time to make sure all printing/shipping costs are paid - and we hope this will not scare you away from ordering the next issue.

    ----------------------

    Will you order?
    I need to inform our printer guy about the amount of magazines we might print next time - and in good time too, because December is a very busy month.

    This is why I made this poll, to get an idea of how many Entropians are planning on ordering the next printed Issue - or who might plan on ordering.

    The poll is public - and I hope that is fine. The reason is, that this thread will be posted on all Planet Partner forums, and I wish to make sure I don't calculate the same person 3 times.

    Your vote is NOT AN ORDER AND NOT BINDING YOU TO BUY THE MAGAZINE. It's only to get an idea of how many printed versions we might have to order.

    ----------------------

    How DO you order?
    If you already know that you would like to order a printed version of EntropiaTimes, and you want to make sure you get the printed version, I am accepting bookings now.

    A final order though is made when the magazine is paid for, and it won't be registered as a final order before this happens.

    The payment methods are (with the one we prefer most at the top):

    PayPal - $18 USD (admin@entropiaplanets.com)

    Donation through EP forum (also Paypal) - click "Forum" - then "Buy us a Beer" (in green)

    (NOT preferred, but possible if nothing else is available - because the printer doesn't accept PED) - In game through our shopping booth at Omegaton Epsilon building, Booth #5. We will place ME for 180 PED to pay for the magazine (The easiest way to reach it is by taking the TP to Omegaton West, running south to the service center, and from there, running Southeast to the Epsilon building. If you enter there, the booth is the first booth on the right. Coordinates: 25630 / 37445).

    The price includes shipping - we deliver world wide.

    If you want to reserve a copy of the magazine now:

    Send me a PM or Email to lykke@entropiaplanets.com with the shipping address, along with payment method.
    Pay one way or another.

    We will register and confirm the order when the payment is received.

    We would like to send out the magazine before Christmas if possible. This means, that the deadline for orders of the printed version is December the 12th (the online release date) at the very very latest.

    The Magazine for December 2010

    To let you know a little of what to expect in the next magazine, here's a list of some of the headlines:

    Exclusive interview with NEVERDIE about ROCKtropia
    Society Spotlight with a controversial Society on ROCKtropia - ROCK STARS
    City Focus
    Newcomers on ROCKtropia
    Exclusive Interview with Ed Robles 3rd - Planet Cyrene
    How to become a Planet Partner - as told by David Dobson, Planet Arkadia
    Exclusive Interview with John K. Bates - MindArk
    New Star Constellations ... what happens to Marco in December?
    Xmas Gift Ideas ... and a contest!
    And lots lots more ...

    ---------------

    REMEMBER the online version of the Magazine is always free and can be seen in 2 different online versions at EntropiaTimes

    The PDF version is a normal PDF file. To view it as a magazine go to your PDF viewer Menu Bar and choose:
    View -> Page Display-> Two-up -> show cover pages during two-up.

    This way you will be able to see it as a magazine.

    The other version is an interactive version - which will allow you to turn pages as if you're reading a real magazine. We hope to be able to improve this tool at some point, but the online versions are too expensive at this moment.

    Advertising
    You still have time to buy advertising space in the magazine. If you're interested, PM or Email me for details

    Thank You
    Lykke

    Thanks for the support

    First of all It's not 'just' to reprint the old magazine. To do so, I need at least 15 orders not to make it too expensive. I might make a new thread after NewYear, asking if some people are up for it.

    Second, if you wish to order a magazine, please send me a pm or a mail as requested, because I can't remember and keep track in replies on all the forums :) Also, an order is a buy when it's paid (18 USD). In the Paypal notification, you write your full name and shipping information + your avatar name, then I know for sure who's going to get one shipped and who 'regret it' and didn't follow through the order ;)

    Thank you so much again :)
    Lykke
