CoolMiniOrNot Forums - AMoTW

    CMON:

    I've written weekly reviews of my favourite mini from each week for a little over a year, but recently haven't been able to maintain my original dedication, thanks mostly in part to lack of free time. Spending three and a half hours without distractions is a luxury that I haven’t got anymore. Aside from music, which dominates a good chunk of my day, there is actual hobby work, and throw in a move across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto, and lastly various summer jobs and now, school.

    Writing weekly for CoolMini has greatly improved my knowledge of the hobby, encouraged me to try out new techniques, helped gain new friends, and through the course of AMotW, I feel as if the quality of my writing is greater than it had been when I set out on the very first edition.

    There are a lot of different artists who have had a submission reviewed, and I’d be extremely flattered if even one of them got something out of my write-up. Most of all, I hope that these analysis' have aided CMoNers in discovering gems amongst the tens of thousands images hosted in the CMoN gallery, and create new perspectives in relation to what you see on the voting page.

    It is really hard for me to end the feature, but, in the end it’s up to time constraints. If anyone’s got a time machine, just gimme a shout.

      It was a very good feature Ian, and will be missed.

      Thanks for all the effort and time you put into it!!

      More important things call, I\'m sure.

      Of course... as happened with the Mini Exchange, someone else with the time and interest could conceivably pick up where you left off

      Well all I can say is this, if someone does pick up where he left off, sooner than later Ian himself will be featured in AMotW(except a different first letter :P)

      looking forward to see how the times change

      Aww, and I clicked here thinking you had finally got around to doing a new article. You had really improved as time went on with your MOTW articles so it\'s a shame you don\'t feel you can continue with them. Thanks for the efforts you put in though.

      As a trained journalist (whatever the hell that means! lol ) and ultra-critical swine I\'m kinda tempted to put myself forward, but I have the feeling the title would have to change to LMRotW (That\'s Lono\'s Miserable Rant of the Week)!

      Unless some literary necromancer resurrects them... :twisted:

      Maybe we should have a MotW contest...?

      I\'m thinking this calls for a \"contest\".. People who are interested in writing the articles could do a write-up in a thread and people can read them seperately before the deadline is reached and then a single thread with all the entrant\'s and a poll can be made! Sound good?

      Rightie then! I\'ll find a mini and anyone who wants to do a write-up on it may do so in their own thread. More in-depth specifications will be included with the official announcement.

      The only reason for my picking it is that I want everyone to do the same one. This way it\'s easier to see what some picked out and what some didn\'t.
