Announcement from WAMP's owner: Brett, regarding Portal.

I wanted to make you aware of an important development regarding Portal.

After Decembers issue of Portal Shane will be stepping down from the magazine and as moderator.

I would like to say thank-you to Shane for his hard work and dedication over the 30 months he has put Portal together. He has been a real driving force behind the magazine and helped make it the No1 free monthly magazine dedicated to Miniature Painting.
So thanks Shane and on behalf of Wamp I wish you all the best.

Unfortunately it also means that as things stand the next issue of Portal will be the last.

I would like to see the magazine continue as I believe in it and its place in the hobby. Its widely regarded around the world and each month its download numbers increase. It helps bring a lot of awareness to Wamp which in turn helps the forum to flourish.

What I want to try and do is put together a team of people that could help produce Portal every month.

What I am looking for is people that can commit each month and are enthusiastic about Portal and Wamp. Whilst a part of the team would need some experience in designing and laying out the magazine (CS5, Adobe Creator,etc) I also need others that could help collate content.

Each member of the team would receive a percentage of the revenue from each issue of Portal.

If you are interested in getting involved please pm me.


I won't lie, it's been a very hard year personally and Wamp has had some bad luck (losing 90% of its income because of Maelstrom and Wayland situations) and now this on top. I have seriously considered shutting it down!!

I do however hope that this development can be used as an opportunity to create an even better Portal Magazine but I can't do it alone. Wamp is full of enthusiastic and generous people that give so much back to the community and I hope a few of you could come together with me and keep Portal going. If not well Bon Voyage and thanks for the memories!

Thanks

Brett

That's the plan. One that isn't tied to any specific forum but more inclusive of all forums. I also want to include more historical miniatures too.
