Alright folks, here's your chance - this drawing is for a 2 year KiteLife subscription and a 1 year membership to the American Kitefliers Association (includes 4 full color quarterly issues of Kiting magazine delivered straight to your home), a combined value of $112.95! More info: KiteLife - http://join.kitelife.com AKA - http://kite.org/join-us/ NOTE: drawing is open only to US or Canada residents. == Read the rules below and reply with "I'm in" to enter! Entered so far: @zachprism01 @Mikelp3586 @Mike Klaiber @cerfvoliste @elmo264 @Kevin Wehner @Materdaddy Standard Karma Note from the Moderators This is a Karma Drawing. The winner of the drawing is expected to pay it forward by offering their own prize for the next drawing. Please do not enter unless you are willing to offer your own prize, preferably not the prize you just won. Drawings should be open for entry approximately 2 weeks, and the next drawing should be posted as soon as possible to keep the Karma rolling. These drawings are run by and for KiteLife forum members and DO NOT require a paid subscription to enter. The moderating team only ensures that your drawing post contains all of the pertinent information (drawing date/time, adequate prize description, drawing rules) before approval. If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/ The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat (I believe an adorable daughter did the picking in that scenario). The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post. Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.
Hi folks, I'm gearing up for a 20 day trip to Singapore, Malaysia and New Jersey from September 12th to October 3rd but I wanted to drop a quick note on something. As many of you know, I've been experimenting with various platforms and formats for the bi-monthly Kitelife e'zine... Here are just some of the ongoing issues that just never seem to get sorted, and continue to bother me: A single shared login site-wide... In order to have this (for members, subscribers, authors, admins, etc), the forum software is the only reliable way to go. Using two different softwares (like Invision forum and Wordpress site) also means TWO updates every time a new version comes out for either, custom themes, etc. Our currently different site layout between magazine and forum, totally different set of navigation links, content, etc... I'd love to see a single front door for all. Lately, there sometimes isn't enough contributed material out there to easily come up with a full range of robust content in each issue. Again, that's just a smattering of the sentiments I have on this issue... So my question is: Would you still read the magazine if our articles were placed in the forum instead, as new topics in a dedicated area? You'd easily know when new articles have been added, because they'd appear in the "View New Content" area. Discussion could instantly ensue from each article, by way of your normal forum reply method. *Everything* would be searchable through a single database since it would all be on the forum. I think we would still have "issues" of sorts, perhaps by using a new topic area like this: Magazine Issues >YEAR >> ISSUE >>>Article name >>>Article name >>>Article name Just lobbing it out there for discussion and consideration, I'm really looking forward to your thoughts and replies. Thanks all for being here... I know I'm not always super active, but I'm here too and appreciate the support.
We're moving the old issues into our new forum format one by one! #1 and #2 were already done, now we've got #3 finished... http://kitelife.com/forum/forum/139-3-jun-98/ Some galleries to go along with our first 3 issues... We've got issues #4 and #5 mostly done, coming soon... #5 has been offline for several years, this is NEW/OLD content!
