Help QBCM Celebrate It's Birthday!
(2/14/2001) QB: Cult Magazine is celebrating a full year of QB coverage, and Editor EvilBeaver is calling on the QB community for help set up the party.
When QB: The Magazine retired exactly a year after it's first issue, this pretty much started a tolerance level for QB magazines. Ever since, regardless of popularity, QB magazines tend to stick around for about a year's time before updates stop or the site is closed entirely. This phenomenon is probably in huge part due to the endurance of the webmaster. Keeping a QB magazine current at all times is a tough job; even V Planet had it's tough times when our original editor QBShire changed positions to game reviewer.
A similar change of position occured during the early months of QB Cult Magazine, when it's founder Matthew R. Knight passed editing and publishing rights of his magazine to EvilBeaver. Since then, the magazine has had a fresh start and an upward surge. Renewed during the Fall season, QB Cult Magazine built up a total of nine issues, quickly making up for the time it had lost during it's transition. In addition, QB Cult Magazine shifted it's main focus to the much-needed world of QB programming articles and it's "QB Ads" section, which allow people to post job openings for their QB sites and games. The supply of news and programming articles met the demand of new and veteran QB programmers, and QB Cult Magazine currently has over 1200 visits since the transition.
Besides being the modernized version of QB: The Magazine, QB Cult Magazine also recently made a new landmark for QB programming magazines by surpassing it's first year. The tenth issue of the online magazine, scheduled for release this March, will celebrate the occasion by having a "Birthday" article. QB:CM editor Evilbeaver is encouraging people from the QB community to make text contributions for the Birthday article, which he hopes to make into an "online Birthday cake".
If you're a fan of QB Cult Magazine, now's the time to show your support. Like many other online QB mags, QB Cult Magazine is doing it's service for free. Nothing makes a webmaster happier and more driven than some positive feedback. If the whole QB community can share a good word with EvilBeaver during this critical time of growth, then we'll be guaranteed new articles and tips from this QB programming magazine for at least another year to come.
