Earthshine KHD.png Alright! The release of the next magazine is only a month away! And we need YOUR help to get this done. (Am I cool yet guys?) So here's a list of the things that I still need:
  • Preview square thingy
  • Cover art (need a name first)
  • Contents collage (the image on page 2)
  • 2 News pieces for the Ansem Reports
  • Jiminy's journal news, logs, New user bios, and tea party updates for The Keyhole.
  • Trinity Archive news, new user bios, and roundtable updates for KHWiki.
  • The Games argument (waiting on Xion4ever and Aixon)
  • An editor rant for The Keyblade Master (optional, I have one, but a second one would be nice)
  • Game, KHWiki, and Keyhole tutorials.
  • Podcast (August needs the audio, October needs recording)
  • review for The Mark of Mastery
  • 1 more drawing
  • At least 1 more riddle and a Puzzle (with printable versions and answers)
  • To do lists for The Keyhole, KHwiki, and the series.
  • Graphic for last issue's poll.
  • 2 More mailbag answers (need these from ANX and the joint one from ANX and Xion4ever) Earthshine KHD.png


DaysXionTalk.png
OPXion4EverIcon.png I will come up with another riddle, the to do lists for the KH Wiki and series (I cannot speak for The Keyhole). I am willing to answer some questions for the mailbag and even partake in The Games argument, however it will have to be done with Facebook or email. I am listed on the "list of users" document on the Facebook page and I've shared my email several times- I can be contacted.

I've already done a drawing but my scanner is having problems so I may have to resort to a camera shot if it's not fixed in time. I'll answer a question from the mailbag too. I could do a review but since I done it last time, I'd prefer it if someone else gets the chance so keep me as a last reserve for now. I'll try my hand at the game tutorial and do a guide on getting the "Technician" trophy in Re:coded.

Don't we also need a piece of line art (preferable but not mandatory)?

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png I signed up for the Door to the Light page (that's the wiki's news page). If we need to, I'll do Ansem's Report, too, though it'd be really slow and short this time (sucks that this is supposed to be published a day before the Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, though). Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png
Keep in mind that the Days manga is still being continued for another two volumes. Not necessarily "hard core" information, but it would fill up a paragraph's worth of space. Also, I thought I had supplied to-do lists for the game and KHWiki.com? If I failed to attach that to my email just say so. Cover idea: This - Sora + magazine book/outline with "KH Wiki" visible on the cover ...Or not. #notanartist. Xion4ever 23:07, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
That's definitely a cover worth thinking about. An idea I had was doing something with this image and making it look as if they're reading the wiki magazine. TheFifteenthMember 23:25, 31 August 2014 (UTC)
Nope, I got your to-do lists Xion. I'm crossing things off the list as I receive them. Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 05:57, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Eternal Flames KHD.png ANX and Xion: Since there's supposed to be 3 questions answered, do you guys want to do 1 each and then 1 together like FR and I did for the last issue? Or do one of you want to do 2 questions while the other does one? I'm sure if the answers are short enough we can fit 4+ on the page if you want.

15M: Got your art, thanks! Eternal Flames KHD.png

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png Question: With the new theme for the Wiki, should we also change the colors for "The Door to Light" page? Or just leave it alone? Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png
That'd probably be a good idea. Dark blue/white scheme? We need to make it different from the Ansem Reports. TheFifteenthMember 18:22, 8 September 2014 (UTC)

On the questions, I'm trying super hard to check in here and edit once a day. However, I can't always guarantee that. I know I've said this a thousand times, but off site messaging for me is the best way to ensure you will hear a within-a-day response. As for KSM's draft: go for it.

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png I've written both pieces for Ansem's Report and The Door to Light, but I'm holding off on it 'till the week before the release, since we're expecting news (hopefully) from Tokyo Game Show. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png

tumblr_osh37pJ7Q21tlnss6o9_75sq.png I personally think the Door to Light should stay as is because
  1. The black ties the Door to Light and Unlocking the Keyhole together.
  2. The page colors are tied to our logos, not the current theme. The Keyhole theme is pink/black at the moment, but Unlocking the Keyhole is yellow/black.
  3. I think the colors are too similar to Ansem Reports and sort of the Round Room.
  4. Changing the colors with each theme seems like unnecessary extra work. But that's just me. :P

But if you're set on changing it can we at least keep the black? tumblr_osh37pJ7Q21tlnss6o10_75sq.png

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png @Xion: What do you mean, "magazine book/outline"? This is all I've got so far:

Cover - October 2014 Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png

I'm meaning as a cover idea we could use the Dive to the Heart image I posted above. However, we would instead have a magazine floating down with the words KH Wiki visible on that tiny magazine's cover. Or, should making a full looking magazine (meaning magazine cover and sides of pages- a more 3D look) be too much work, we could just draw the sketch outline of a rectangle to serve as the front cover of a magazine. Is that any better? I'm sorry for the confusion. Xion4ever 11:19, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Note: We should come up with a full name for the magazine. Just writing "Kingdom Hearts Wiki" excludes the Keyhole. TheFifteenthMember 15:34, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Minus the name comment 15 posted, I'm totally digging your draft, KSM. ^_^ Xion4ever 23:59, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, a name for the magazine would be a good idea. I reckon it should be something that excludes anything particular to one wiki, like "The Twilight Town Tribune" or something like that. tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o8_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o5_75sq.png FINALREST tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o3_75sq.png tumblr_osispiEQ831tlnss6o6_75sq.png 10:22, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Whatever name we decide, we'll need a subline explaining that it's a Kingdom Hearts and Wiki Magazine. TheFifteenthMember 16:20, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

In other news, I submitted the game tutorial. TheFifteenthMember 22:15, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Can we have an update? What pieces are left to submit and what else do we need to discuss? TheFifteenthMember 12:34, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png I need a title for the cover. I've got several suggestions:
  • Twilight Town Tribune (which FR suggested)
  • Disney Castle (or Town) Daily
  • Radiant Garden Recorder
  • Destiny Islands News
  • Disney Castle Chronicler (ties in with the Jiminy's Journal image we keep using and such)
  • Daybreak Town Journal
  • Traverse Town Times
  • Any main world + Post, Journal, Gazette, Tribune, News, Daily, Times, etc.

Pick and choose, but I need a name soon, 'cuz the rest of the cover is pretty much finished. Beyond that, (to update) Ansem's Report and The Door to Light are good, but I'm still holding off in case something new comes up (like the new secret movie in Re:coded that did last week).

EDIT: I personally am leaning towards "Disney Castle Chronicler", and I've already made a version of cover with that title, in case. But if we choose otherwise, I can make another version. Here is the complete cover, lacking a cover. Magazine Cover 1 - October 2014 Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png

Most of this thread is tl;dr for me. But heres the update; October podcast needs to be recorded sometime in the next week or so. Back in August, me, chain, and NZ recorded a podcast that was supposed to be uploaded back in August as a inbetweener for this month's podcast. We recorded, but I forgot to edit the thing till yesterday (its finish editing btw).

TheFifteenthMember Ignoring how these caterpillars uttered what they're trying to say, I do agree. TheFifteenthMember 16:33, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
"The Twilight Times" is my favourite but it sounds like a newspaper rather than a magazine. That might not be a big issue though.

There's half a month left. Should we start creating the Template v2.?

Eternal Flames KHD.png 11 Days left people!! I have all the coding I need, we can just use the same template as last time. FR is going to make a few modifications for new sections and the like. Well if it sounds too "newspaper-y", How about the Twilight Tribune? Eternal Flames KHD.png

Even though the only difference is colour scheme changes, I'd like it if we create a new template so the previous issues aren't affect and retain their original colour schemes. That way, we preserve the older issues in the exact condition that they were released in, which is nice for nostalgia later in the years and makes it like a "proper" paper magazine. Honestly, I think "Twilight Times" is still the best name, even if it does sound newspaper-y. The front cover will mention the word "magazine" anyway.

Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png Well, I still much prefer "Disney Castle Chronicle", as it still ties better to the Jiminy's Journal image we use to represent the magazine. Not to mention, personally, the draft for that title came out much better than the one for "Twilight Town Times." Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png
I prefer "Twilight Times" because it's less of a mouthful than "Disney Castle Chronicle". Maybe we should put it to a vote? Will we need an extra section to the "Round Room" that has a link to the mid-issue episode (the episode 2 that was just released) or can we just mention it in the lead description? TheFifteenthMember 19:42, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Yes, a vote would be best. Also, I thought the plan was to add both podcasts to the Round Room page. I don't know, it's up to you guys what to do with that. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 22:45, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
Any thoughts on TheSilentHero's suggestion? I personally like it the best. Kingdom Hearts implies the subject, and courant shows that it is a newspaper/magazine. Also, I don't think the joint mailbox response is going to happen between ANX and myself. I believe I answered one mailbox question earlier. If you need me to answer another one, just email or Facebook me with it. This weekend is extremely busy as we are hosting a marching band competition. I'll do my best to respond ASAP. Xion4ever 10:09, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
"Twilight Times" is still my preference but we only have four days left, so I'm fine with anything. Any comment on my idea to create a new template? Never mind, I just checked the Journalist Spot. TheFifteenthMember 11:14, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

TheFifteenthMember I like white. I find it goes well with yellow, but only if you want it to. TheFifteenthMember 21:10, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
After some thought, I figure that there's still a number of things to be finalised (name and template) and a few pieces left to be written (review etc.) so if required, we could push the release date back by a week. Considering each issue releases every three months, a week isn't much time in the grand scheme of things. Thoughts?
