I've always thought that was a stroke of genius. Truly uses the strength of the online form, rather than adhering to print's more rigid timetable.

It wound up being the right move for us :)

If we could make more money we would actually love to do a story a week. We'll get there though.

Brian, You have the go to site. Any more powerful and we will have to break you up like Ma Bell or Standard Oil. :)

Alyssa, I am Legend!

Alyssa, would that be A Fistful of Legends...?

David Cranmer said...

Nik, That would be this legend. :)

I'm not sure if you thought up this format, David, or if it was another brilliant idea from BTAP's design wizardress, dMix, but it's gratifying to see it noticed.
