So, here is where you place your suggestions and dreams on what the next issue might contain.
I think this should be a group effort, so it can really be a community magazine.
Tagavoga was asking for a plane tutorial some time ago, InfoCentral has been quite vocal in Renderosity about some of Shade's documentation shortcomings, so this is the opportunity to turn this into a community project.
Let the brainstorming begin!

I'd love to help out on the magazine. I actually have some experience putting a magazine together. A year ago I had my first issue of a print magazine ready to publish but unfortunately my funds ran out after a sales guy I hired had lied and forged all of the sales contracts.

The little adventure ended up costing me over $10,000 but I still had a great deal of fun laying out the magazine with Adobe InDesign.

I'm not sure how much I could help out with on the tutorial side of things as my Shade skills are still quite weak, but you will definately need someone to help coordinate the materials into a single document and to do some editing.

You guys have your own magazine? How many Issues have you had?  Did the issue you're discussing come out? When?

There was one issue of Shader's Mag, and I plan on continue on it, but I need some collaboration to get it done. And more free time.

I think reanimating the magazine would be a very positive step.  They problem is how many people would be able to contribute tutorials?

Except for Larry's tutorials, has anyone actually ever written another one?
