Unofficial Construct 2 Ezine

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

An unofficial Construct 2 Ezine

An idea I've had for a while, however, due to the death of my previous two computers. I've been unable to do anything for the last two months or so, even develop such an idea. Until a fortnight ago whereby I bought my current computer.

While developing my site recently; currently working on the 'Construct 2' section. I've reconsider beginning such an undertaking. Of which I will place here (Click Here)..

I thought I would be able to use it to develop the Construct 2 aspects I've already worked on and plan to continue or improve (Tutorials, videos, capx files). But also providing a small means of compensation for the time and commitment.

I have not asked Tom or Ashley about it yet, with the chance an ezine may be in their current business plan/model; in which case I would not want to proceed and compete.







I'd love to hear your opinions on this. Or if you have any questions

All the best, thank you for reading this,

I believe it is a great idea! I'd love to have a magazine about C2.

We don't have any plans to do anything similar right now! This looks great though, would love to see it go live.

I'm in!

Just checked your CAPX site, looks good, not the standard stuff, instead some interesting effects etc that would be worthwhile to a lot of people. Great stuff.vandinz2012-10-17 17:24:09

Really nice work so far, the framework has already begun to come along nicely. I'll be interested to keep up with your progress, and let us (and me) know if you could use some help from the community!

Thank you all for your response and feedback. I've already started to create the basic layout and plan for it. And hope to get the vision, values and mission statement completed by the end of the weekend. To solidify it's direction.

@glerikud, thank you.

@Ashley, that's good. I was worried I may be stepping on toes with it.

@vandinz, thanks for checking out the website. Although the 'Free-Capx' part was taken from a different project which had slowed down due to hardware issues. I'm planning to continue to upload a few each week.

@teahousemoon, thank you. I'll keep you updated. Depending on how things go, I may be in touch screaming 'Help!'.

Will be back with some updates shortly.

Update (22/10/2012):

Firstly, it's late here. I apologies for the many typos I will make.

Good news, I now have the general layout of the ezine (See http://www.englishacorn.com/ezine/construct2/). But still need to upload its content (using fillers for the moment), and integrate with social networking devices/sites.... etc...

I've decided to move the site's domain location with the future plan of moving the magazine (assuming it goes well) to its own domain in the future. And also have it less integrated with my main website.

More to come this week.

Would appreciate feedback concerning the layout of the site (Not the images as they are temporary, nor the social media links as I will change those such as the youtube video). I've used a template in the end to save trouble.

All the best,
