Public service notice: your opinion counts!




Hi all, so the last few days I've been considering what improvements can be made to the site. Tags could help when looking for zines froma specific year or country but tags can also confuse as tagging each zine with its name goes counter to the whole idea of having accessable tags...

More importantly, I am experimenting with Issuu where you can upload Pdfs and then the website templates it into a scrollable online magazine. It can be quite useful even if some people will continue to download jpgs or pdfs to print out or whatever...not many of you visitors leave any comments so frankly I have no idea what people do with the content uplaoded and posted on PunksIsHippies. Anyway, the downside of Issuu is probably that it will be all adverts and shit so I am not sure about whether it will be appropiate...the alternative would be to make the same thing in html (as a magazine project that I was involved with a few years ago did, see here) but then we need to have a large server space to host all the fanzine jpgs.

Anyway, here is the last zine posted here converted into the magazine template shit that Issuu offers. Let me know if you like this, or if indeed it is worthwhile...


It seems you can post embedded versions too, though I haven't figured out how that works yet (lol), but one option for the future of this site could be to continue what we do but also have each zine uploaded to Issuu. Here is how the embedding looks like:




Get your own - Open publication





Again, YOUR FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT SO LET US KNOW.

if you ever wanted to create an extra format that is "print ready" let me know, and i will work on as many zines as i can. i have access to programs that can re-arrange the pages so they resemble the zine's originals in just a minute or so's time. the pages for a 12 page zine look like 1 + 12 on page 1, 2 + 11 on page 2 etc., so you can just print it double sided

Hey, as far as I'm concerned I'd definitely use this whole Issuu thing. Tom. M.'s suggestion is also pretty awesome, though I don't think I'd actually print anything myself right now.

bloody youth statistic after 2 days on issuu = more than 1000 views...

riot and inferno punx - each about 500 times...

i guess the people have voted that yes it is a good idea - depsite only 2 or 3 people bothered to say so in as many words...

cheers everyone
