Well, since Ghost is managing the magazine, maybe...

"Take a byte at Pinky"

Why not go basic and call it "The Archade" (pronounced like "Arcade")?

Now that one has good potential with a slogan.

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

I understand Ghost, what you are going through, my suggestion would be the same I was about to do before I gave the Newsletter to you. Go back to the original way, HTML only, with the sections we had before the conversion to a magazine. I wish I could help again, since I love the newsletter, and everyone knows how enthusiastic I was/am about it.

Unfortunately, there's actually a Cartoon Network-sponsored program called "Boomerang: It's All Coming Back" which is basically 24-hour classic cartoons.  Sadly for that name and slogan, you will probably run into trademark issues if you use it, though I'm not sure if Boomerang is still up and running.

Ok... Lots of good ideas, some are definite possibilities. Anyone got anything else for me?

I don't know if this has been considered, but why not publish articles instead of a magazine.  Basic idea is that someone submit to you an article, if you are happy with it, you publish it online (simple html).  The article gets added to a table of content where all passed articles are listed which makes the whole think searcheable (author, title, topic, keyword...).  The difference from the wiki is that the article is not widely editable of course.

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

Actually OMG! Ubuntu has a sister site called OMG! Suse for OpenSuse. The concept of having a blog by arch community members which is as thorough and updated as OMG! Ubuntu is great. Planet Arch is good but it somehow feels incomplete. I'd also love to contribute in the magazine and I can be used as a proofreader.

An OMG! Arch would be awesome.

Re: The future of Arch Linux Magazine

Something similar to OMG would be just fine, but the guy running that one seems a little bit... I don't know.  I like the way that blog gets updated just as often as new things get done, like docky and unity and such, but he focuses on certain things way too much and leaves out a lot of other stuff.  His blog is great, if you're running gnome and docky, and your primary concern with new ubuntu releases is the new themes and wallpapers.  I guess what I'm saying is that the format of that blog is pretty great, and the way it updates on new stuff is pretty great, as compared to posts about stuff that aren't too current, like, say, lifehacker does sometimes.  But I wouldn't want it to focus too much on stuff like gtk themes.  Stuff like, docky adding a new feature is just fine, i suppose.  Stuff like new icons for the notification panel annoy me.  I think I rambled a lot.  I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.
