Have read it cover to cover and later today will post my scores on the doors as prompted by CP. The pleasing thing is no article scored less than a 7 and a few got 9's imo. Overall score ends up as an 8 out of 10. Excellent stuff. Will post scores on the other bit!

I was speaking to Dave Thomas in Kettledrum on Saturday before Villa game, he was asking me why we didn't put WTBM articles up online here too. Is this something we could look at Barnsey? I can see you would want to keep new stuff for the Mag but maybe we could put up older articles already published in the Mag on VB with the author's consent? We might also be able to put up new articles with a topical flavour that don't make the mag due to space? Just a thought, it might attract more to the site too

I don't mind putting archive stuff up, although most of it has been pdf'd so that might prove a problem. Also want to hold them for a few months to encourage people to buy past issues (the few that haven't sold out, that is!) It's an idea, though. I MAY start putting old issues on Ebay, too?

I have said before mate - I dont see any negative impact from putting old articles on ebay. I also agree that putting articles online a few months after they have been purchased, is not a good idea. I dont think it would reduce sales.

I think I now what you mean, Dale, although perhaps your post needs retyping, lol!

Do you think we could ask for two things for every issue, all articles for WTBM magazine as normal plus just one unique article for the online site here? You could then put a teaser to that article in the WTBM mag giving the VB URL to visit and read the article? We might all then benefit by more folk becoming aware of both VB and WTBM? In terms of the archive stuff maybe we could link it to to some event eg if we have reviewed a player,manager, game in the Mag and it becomes relevant again?

I have been trying to do something along the lines of what TMP suggests for the last few months. My goal is to write a teaser Vital article to get people to buy WTBM, and then have a reference back to Vital in my WTBM stories, if I can. I am fine about any of my old WTBM articles being posted on Vital (if selected). What might be fun (or hard work) would be, rather than post each old WTBM in full, to post specially selected groupings of articles. So, for example, Barnsey could do a match-by-match record of our promotion year. Or, again by way of example, everything from Dave Thomas could be put in one place. All of which might well actually encourage people to think about buying future WTBMs, as long as it's clearly stated that nothing will go on the website till, say, after the end of the season. If only to give Barnsey something to do in the close season, this must be a good idea!

TMP, is it possible to attach a PDF to the site? If you have the right software, it's pretty easy to mix and match pages from different PDFs, though I have never done it myself!
