    We are pleased to offer you the second issue of EntropiaTimes – EntropiaPlanets.com’s free online magazine (also available as a printed copy by order only, and for a limited time only for each issue).

    The first issue of the magazine was published in September – and became, to our surprise, a much larger success than we thought it would be - not only as an online magazine but definitely also as a printed copy.

    With the release of this December issue we therefore decided to make it possible for those who were too late for the September printed copy to re-order.

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

    EP Media Center delivers news
    EntropiaPlanets.com continues to bring you breaking news, player profiles, interesting articles, and exclusive interviews. People behind the magazine are all people who are a part of the Entropian Community – who believe they have something to offer, stories to tell, and news to deliver. We brought together some of these hardworking people to create a Media Center at EntropiaPlanets, and these are the people who provide us with hot news about what's happening in our Universe, along with exclusive interviews of Planet Partners. As a result of the quality work done by our Media Team, we decided to join forces and make an exclusive magazine with news not being published anywhere else.

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

    Interactive magazine
    The magazine was created in an interactive way, meaning that it contains links to wiki pages and websites. This is the case for regular info links, but also for the advertisements within the magazine. If you hover over a link, your cursor will change to a little hand, and if you click, the link will open up a new browser window. This gives us an even better opportunity to provide you with background information.

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

    EntropiaTimes Forum
    We created an EntropiaTimes forum for discussion of the magazine. This will also be where we will add a link to each edition of the magazine to make it easier for you to find it. The forum mentioned can also be accessed directly by browsing to www.entropiatimes.com.

    There are two versions of the magazine. One is an interactive version where you can navigate between the pages by hovering over the corners of a page, and the other is a regular PDF version. Be aware, that it might take a few minutes to download the files

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

    Did you order your printed copy?
    If you find that you really like the magazine, and would like to receive a printed copy as well, you can still order but ONLY until tomorrow, the 13th of December. After this the magazines will be printed in the ordered amount, and we will not reprint the magazine this time. This goes for both issues.

    To order, please pay $18 USD through PayPal to admin@entropiaplanets.com – including your avatar name, a specification of what issues you’re ordering and your real name and shipping address. As a side note, the shipping for the previous issue was underestimated, so we need to make sure we can cover it this time.

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

    September Contest
    A lot of people contributed to our EntropiaTimes contest in the September issue with some very constructive feedback on both the magazine and the forum. The result from this and the 2 winners are announced in this issue of EntropiaTimes. Congratulations to the winners of a vehicle - please contact me for the in game hand-over.

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

    Forum Theme and small changes
    We changed a few things on the forum to mirror the theme of the magazine, which is ROCKtropia. The actual header will remain until right after New Year, then we go back to 'normal.' One of the changes is the Conquest System, which will be set to zero again, and with new ROCKtropian clans to pick. Good luck to the Dragons, Security Guards and Vampire Chicks!

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

    From all of us here at EntropiaPlanets to all of you, we would like to wish you a Happy Holiday Season and lots of reading pleasure :)

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

    The Interactive PDF File Procedure:
    * Open the file - it will open up in your browser, and might take a few minutes to load.
    * You will see the file as a real magazine, with the front page first - and you can turn pages by using the arrows shown under the magazine. Scroll up and down if the page is too large, by using the weel on the mouse.
    * It is possible to zoom in and out by right clicking on the pages and chose that setting.

    Be aware, that the interactive file setting is not a 100% sized file, because that would be too big for some screen settings. Use the zoom in and out function - it works pretty well

    The normal PDF file procedure:
    * Open up the file
    * In the PDF programe head menu choose View -> Page Display -> Two-Up
    * Also choose -> Show cover page during Two-Up
    * This will show you the magazine as a real magazine too.
