Submitted By TheCyberMan on 12/03/24
Mars Explorer, TheCyberMan, Community, Creations, Publications, The Weekly Martian 

*NOTE* I'll probably need to release the Martian paper every 2-3 weeks from now on. What should the new name be?
 
Possible names:
 
The Martian News (TheCyberMan)
The Mars Explorer Enquirer (cheezburger)
The Martian Times (acorn2oak2)
The Martian Report (TheCyberMan)
The Martian Gazette (TheCyberMan)
Martian Messenger (EmperorEctoshock)
Mars Today (CrimsonPhantom12)
The Explorer (etah)
The Martian (etah)
 
 
 
New ideas:
 
ibcfmaybe articles about gameplay and new worlds/models. Player interviews would be fun, too.
My reply: I definitely planned on doing those types of articles. We just didn't have anyone interested in writing an article on gameplay yet. New models haven't been out in a while either, and no one wanted to interview someone. Good ideas, though!
 
PanzerAce: How about tips for Mars. Advertisements for `website of the Week`(ex. Humor America)
My reply: Tips for Mars–of course! Again, I just didn't have enough article writers :/ I don't know if advertising other sites should be done on a Martian newsletter, lol. Maybe we could advertise sites that encourage or help aspiring game developers (so more people would develop again).

Pretty cool!
 
I like it. Are you going to post them all on separate posts or keep them on this one post?

That.  Is amazing.  Plain and simple.  Any chance I could assist with perhaps articles on Martian dogfighting tips?

This was great! I'd love to contribute, but I have no idea what to do =<
Once I get a few ideas I guess I could shoot a PM your way, if you're OK with it.

So, Eric, would you like me to send my worlds to you, so that you can put them in the weekly martian?

Actually, no. I saw your post already silly :P I could just post your links in a "Latest World Releases" article, but since there haven't been any other recent worlds, I have a better idea:
 
I'd rather you write about your worlds and take pictures for The Weekly Martian. Since you're the creator, it should be much more easier for you than I, and you get extra promotion.
 
You can have a whole page with two pictures to talk about your worlds. Would you like to do that?

Mac or PC? There are additional programs you can use for each.
 
If you're on a Mac, I can help you configure your settings correctly.

Nope :( It keeps failing to load it, and saying that it is not the right file.. Could I send the URL of the world to someone before it comes out and they can take the screen shots?

Oh, and I have also just upgraded Cruciferous Dogfighting a bit. It is now Celandine Dogfighting :D
   It isn't much of a change but Delph wanted it to be a bit more 3d so I just added some extra edges :) I may also relese "Ye Old Martian Town" if enough people would like to see it :)
   I havn't given the URL to Celandine Dogfighting yet because I don't know if you would like to put it in the weekly martian :)

Wow, nice, I am interested in writing an article.
I shall ponder what to write about and PM you the article when I'm done. After, of course, checking with you about the subject.
 
And @Oaky, my favorite vehicle is a buggy and my favorite worlds are Kirby's Battleroom, Gub's Dungeon, and Flynn's Tunnel Runnn.

LOL and I thought the net disaster sounds were a part of the 80's dancing video, some kind of choreographed sound effects for when he did new moves.

I'm going to use The Martian Gazette.
 
I will not use a title with "daily," "weekly," "monthly," etc. as the release dates are uncertain.
 
"times" and "news" are plainly overused/popular.
 
Enquirer does not fit for this newspaper.

"Perhaps a word that doesn't sound like you're concipated?"
 
Look who's talking, panzer.
However, if that was just a harmless joke then I say the following:
"lol."

If you are going to insult anyone–especially when it's a distraction–keep it off my threads.
 
Of all the things I have to moderate, this behavior shouldn't be one.

Meh, how about a shorter name so that people can just type the WM (Weekly Martian) or the MM for Ecto :P instead of The Marsxplr Weekly Telegraph every time they refer to it! It would be much easier for the name to be The Martian or something then if you have it a lot in text then it won't start to get annoying! :D

I am not worried about the length of the title–who would even use the search bar to find it, and is it that big of a deal anyway? Lol :P 

But if the newspaper title is too long for you and you're trying to find an old copy, you may just want to browse the Content category. The Weekly Martian is in here: http://marsxplr.com/browse-cat-72
