Big Dumb Guy
If I am going to start this again, I want to do it right. I want to create a template that I can just shove content into, rather than creating it on the fly and hoping it comes out OK.

So, the structure.

Every mag will have 20 pages, plus the title page.

Page 0: Title page
Page 1: Introduction, welcome, contents, quick info
Page 2: First long article, but not the feature
Page 3: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 4: Split page with screenshots, art, and short snappy things
Page 5: Tutorial or other similar article
Page 6: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 7: Split page, screenshots and other snappy things
Page 8: The big feature
Page 9: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 10: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 11: Split page with submission info, following the big feature, and other small pieces
Page 12: Feature from an RM site around the web
Page 13: A scripting or other advanced feature
Page 14: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 15: Best of the net screenshots
Page 16: Last article
Page 17: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
Page 18: Single page feature
Page 19: And another thing section: closing pages, short articles, humorous things
Page 20: ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '

So every article has a bunch of short, snappy bits here and there, surrounding:

One 3 page feature article, which should be the title page
Two 2 page articles
One 2 page tutorial or similar article
One 2 page scripting or other advanced feature
One single page feature

These will be the focus each issue when going out searching for content; the rest kind of falls into place once they're in.
