    Guest editos could work well. I'm happy to do a month if you want but I thought there were quite a few people that wanted to be editor as well.
    But no one has done anything suggesting that the demand isn't there.

    I imagine there are people who might like to do one edition but probably don't want the commitment of monthly editions, so I'm hoping that guest editing will open the door to those people.

    I think the demand is there but not many member were interested in writing articles, it was the usual MHoC response of wanting to read article, and wanting to debate bill but not use energy to create content.

    I think you're right. I think it would be quite nice if a different party leader or deputy leader could create an article for each edition.

    Or interviews, which seem to have died out as a means of filling Ad HoC.

    Ray actually interviewed me recently for an article. Perhaps that can be included in one of the next publications?

    So what happens now? Can't we have some kind of election? At least it would create another source of debate.
    I oppose such an election. It's clear that the only person willing to commit in any form at all was Niige.

    There's no point in an election if nobody has the initiative to simply make an edition.

    Perhaps. I think monthly editors is the way to go. That way we can have a refreshing mix of serious publications and satirical publications.

    In which case make your monthly edition, there's still no reason to require permission from an electorate of any kind.

    I would prefer it if Saracen's Fez could compile a list of who will produce a publication in what month first.

    Is it just that you are unhappy about the free press revealing the truth about your government?
