Rolf Arands, Newsletter Editor
The deadline for the April 1998 RVRR newsletter is Friday, March 20, 1998. This is a week after Friday the 13th. Scary. Please submit your articles via floppy disk, e-mail, or as hard copy for graphics and pictures if you cannot easily transfer the graphics file to disk. I can open almost any word processor file on my Mac, but in the spirit of keeping Bill Gates rich, Microsoft Word is easiest for me. E-mail is wonderful, so if you can, please submit it via the Internet. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will try to send a confirmation of receipt for articles, but I cannot always do this. I can also scan in text and graphics. The key is to submit a wrinkle-free fresh copy on clean, white paper with good dark print. If you have questions, please call me at 732-424-8093, or send an e-mail message.
There is one temporary and
three permanent changes to the newsletter
deadline and policies.
For the May newsletter, I will need all articles by the 10th of April. I cannot
"allow" any extensions whatsoever. Whatever I have by 11:59:59 pm on April 10th is what
goes in. Anything that comes in after does not go in. Midland info must
be submitted by this deadline.
Permanent change #1:
The newsletter deadline will be changed from the 20th to the 15th of the
month effective with the June newsletter (deadline is May 15). I realize
this is close to Midland, but I must insist on the change. With the
current deadline on the 20th, there has been insufficient time to collect
articles, edit them, bring to Doug, copy, label and mail in time for a
first of the month delivery.
The extra five days will allow more time for any irregularities in the
Permanent change #2:
I will send one reminder only for newsletter submissions on the 10th of
each month. I neither have time nor resources to keep track of people
who intend to submit, or people who need extensions, etc.
Permanent change #3:
Ads and specialty items that appear in our newsletter must be submitted
in "camera ready format." Dean Shonts ad in the current newsletter is an
EXCELLENT example of how to submit an ad. He gave me two sizes in
scan-ready format (clean B&W copy). It took only 5 minutes to get his ad
ready for the newsletter. Again, I don't have time to make detailed ads,
forms, etc. month after month. I ask that the submitters handle all the
editing and preparation.
I try not to edit the content of any articles, other than for grammar,
spelling, and page formatting. However, I remove or change anything that
may be offensive or of questionable intent. RVRR's image and character
must be reflected in the best light in the newsletter. Text may be edited
to facilitate page layouts. Ads presented as articles have occurred on
several occasions, and will be allowed without cost only with approval of
the RVRR Board.
