Not to bust your bubble or anything, but I don't think this is that great of an idea. If you had suggested this back in, say 1998, it would have been a great idea. Back then, the emulation scene was flurishing with all kinds of different emulators coming out and being worked on (psx, n64, competition between zsnes and snes9x, etc). But now, emulation is pretty much dead save for a few next-gen emulators that won't even be feasible until several years from now. Sure, zophar's domain still has daily emulation news, but it's usually nothing that exciting (an update to mame or its variants, a translation, etc).

Now I don't mean to discourage you or anything. If you wanted to place more of an emphasis on pc hardware or gaming in general, I'm sure you would have more than enough material for an E-Newsletter.

Anyway, good luck.

If you put it that way, then I think your newsletter will be pretty good. As long as it isn't just a cut-and-dry news brief, it might be worth trying.

EDIT: I just noticed you guys already have one in the works. Can I help at all?
it's called "not updating that section for a few years now" :p There was one in the works, a llllooooonnnnnggggg time ago

If you're that commited to make a newsletter, then I guess no one can say otherwise. We'll give you the resources and then you can go at it.

A newsletter woluld be cool. Even weekly is a little much though. I would say a bi-weekly or monthly newsletter :) I don't have the time to help like I would want to, but if you need some suggestions or ideas, just ask ;)

Keith attempted this some time ago..It was a labor of love that turned out to be too much labor. Many of the features he created became part of his Emufanatics site (Spotlights, Previews, Q&A, etc)

Good luck in your efforts though

I think Dark Watcher can help me out with that one :) Still no PM's though...

EDIT: I finally got making Columns through HTML down pat. Now I'm just awaiting Kirby's response from the PM I sent him.

Well, I don't see many here, so maybe I'll be PMing people asking if they're interested. If some accept, THEN I'll make a Recruitment thread (Unless otherwise specified not to)

As for your grammatical errors, I can help you there :D I'm pretty good with writing, so anything you need let me know and I'll give you a hand.
