Much time and effort went into the making of the newsletter. If there are enough contributors and a good organizer a regular periodical could be issued. Perhaps something quarterly would be efficacious.

I really liked reading MTM when it came out, the different sections were informative and entertaining, I'd like to see it continue.^^

Will I ever be able to escape this eternal living Hell, this endless cycle of being used, hurt and betrayed…? After all others had hated and abandoned me, he was the first to ever view me with only love and kindness in his eyes... He sees me for what I truly am... I love and will never abandon him... Our hearts will shine together... And break through the darkness and discord that is Eternity...

Quote by evelluchialike i said why cant we all find a way to keep mai-chan and the MTM going and alive?

Unfortunately, it's about being able to not only find staff that have the time, but also those that are willing to commit and not only cooperate, but also maintain a level of standards.

Sadly, Mai-chan wasn't getting much help these days, so she had to shut things down. Perhaps if you can rally enough supporters and demand for it, MTM could be alive once again!


Everyone wants mai chan back, but as cy said, mai chan wasn't getting much help lately :(
MTM is not only for the members of mt, but it's also by the members. But if it has only a few contributors then it's only them who have to make something for mtm. And thinking of something that is good is not that easy even if it's once in a month (at least for me.. i couldn't think of any idea after 3 mt vessel's comics for the next one :P) But if more members could contribute then everyone will get enough time to come up with something. Maybe there should be a 'by members' section or something like that, where anyone can contribute ANYTHING good they wish. Like a joke, or a short story, or a poem, or a comic, or tips, anything! :P
I think it was allowed even earlier but I don't think it was made clear enough... Making a permanent section for that and saying 'you can submit anything' will encourage more members to participate xD I hope the members will be conscious of the 'level of standards' while submitting it as cyan said :P


And I think writing information about the sections of MTM on Mai chan's userpage will be a good idea. That way, people will know where they can submit things they wish ^^;
For that, some sections should be permanent in the mtm. And the members can contribute in some of these sections.
But if mai chan wishes then she can add a new section. But if it requires members to contribute then she should update info about it on her userpage and also declare it in the previous mtm.

and um... just my thoughts about some sections:
C/ The MT Planet
D/ Mod Life

I think these two and others if any should be posted under a 'by staff' section. That way, even if they can't think of anything for an issue, someone else will still be posting something in it ^^'

and other sections like
E/ Hoo's Tips and
D/Member Comics
should be included under 'by members' section. And this is the section which should also include all those jokes, stories, etc.
I think mai chan should post a list of what things that can be posted in this section on her userpage. Because it might happen that some member has something to share but isn't sure if it'll be accepted on mtm. It might also include links to other forum topics, e.g. someone has posted some good poem in the hobbies & sports forums, then it should be linked here. That way, even the relatively *ahem* neglected forums will get more attention ^^;


and as Hooyaah had once suggested, mai chan should post interviews of normal members too (by 'normal', i mean those who aren't elite or mod.. i don't mean to say that the staff is not normal xD)</spam ends>

I wholeheartedly agree eve. We should put a stake in mai-chans heart. No one likes zombies coming out of their caskets.

I guess I have an advantage over most people. At least I know I'm not getting a happy ending.Signature Image

I might suggest that the MTM could become a community newsletter containing regular and occasional contributions by members and staff alike. As I mentioned earlier it would be easier to publish quarterly and there would have to be at least one person with both enough desire and time to devote to compiling it all. Are there enough of you who would like to contribute? Is there at least one of you who would be willing to invest your efforts regularly to ensure a successful and timely issue?

this may be a shot in the dark but maybe we all could team up in some way to make a new MT news letter that comes out every quorter of the year and a special one for each special holiday maybe

There's a reason it was ended (actually, many reasons) and no, it will not be revived. As for all of the complaints about it only being MT Staff participating-- it's because they're the only ones who responded to my pleas for help. (well, a few members responded as well, like Aiira and TheCompiler...)

I have no qualms if members want to create their own newsletter under a different title.

Bear with me, for this is going to be a bit lengthy.

First off, we're glad to see that you guys want MTM to come back! It shows that Mai-chan was doing something right and that we were doing a great job. However, I need to break down a few things and be rather realistic about this as well. My apologies if anyone takes any offense.

The first and foremost thing is this. MTM was significantly declining in popularity. However, we cannot verify this as the only basis we have is on comments, but this year has been a rough year for Mai-chan's work. Mai-chan wasn't getting any messages or questions anymore, and member contact with the magazine itself was virtually zero except for commenting, as oppose to how it was in previous years.

Time. Unfortunately, Fireflywishes was a large player in helping Mai-chan get MTM together, and to be honest it's a lot of work for her. Firefly helps coordinate every aspect of MTM with Mai-chan, and sadly with the previous issue it was tougher and tougher to continually produce a monthly magazine.

Demand from members. While we've seen demand from here, we also need to see that the members are serious about the revival. Discontinuing MTM was a huge decision that was made after months of decisions and debate. Ultimately, it was decided that this was the best route to go, and to be honest I haven't seen anything that disproves that route yet. We need to see devotion, suggestions, and so forth from members. We need to see commitment given to the issue, respect given to those that are involved in it no matter how you might feel about something, and more importantly action itself. MTM is a time-consuming process. It involves a lot of factors, and if those factors don't work out you need to have several back up plans for whatever may.

I hope this helps clarify a few things and more importantly helps you understand why MTM was retired.
