 I  seem  to  have  missed  this  thread  somehow.  I  would  definitely  be  interested  in  something  like  this.  
 
 Harshal  is  correct,  Rs.  50/-  every  two  months  is  peanuts  for  almost  all  who  are  associated  with  this  hobby  considering  the  wealth  of  information  it  will  have.  I  sincerely  hope  that  we  get  1000  subscribers  for  this  to  take  off....

 I'm  sure  50/-  is  not  the  issue  here  it  is  sustaining  the  publication.  And  findig  1000  subscribers  just  from  this  forum  is  not  realistic  I  guess.
 
 Again  in  the  Information  age  everything  is  available  online  with  immediate  cross  links  and  references.  So  I  don't  know  how  feasible  is  having  a  magazine  and  regarding  the  high  resolution  pictures  in  the  magazine  I'm  sure  we  need  to  purchase  it  legally  to  even  publish  them.  (having  in  mind  the  magazine  in  the  long  run).

 IAH  currently  has  2120  members,  won't  we  get  1000  subscribers  out  of  these   Sad
 
 Karna,  I  do  understand  that  everything  can  be  very  easily  searched  and  researched  over  the  net  but  still  personally  I  wouldn't  mind  a  regular  publication  with  all  the  consolidated  information,  tips  and  more  at  such  a  reasonable  price.

 NO...  I  am  not  agree  with  you  Thumb Down
 I  am  100%  sure  we  wont  get  even  500  members  through  IAH.  This  is  true  that  right  now  our  current  strength  is  of  2100+  members,  but  how  many  of  us  are  active  over  here  Confused  ....  just  think  about  it  .......  I  guess  its  not  more  than  200  Â Sad

 and  most  importantly...  who  the  hell  gonna  take  the  responsibility.  I  think  no  one,  Its  not  like  a  joke  that  people  said  &  its  done...  It  requires  lot  of  time  &  contribution  from  experts,  proffesional  aquarists  &  experience  hobbyists.  If  experts,  moderators,  adimns  are  ready  to  work  on  this  project,  then  I  will  take  the  resposibilities  for  publishing  this  book.  Printing  &  publishng  is  a  part  of  our  familty  business  &  I  know  how  to  compile  &  launch.  Smile  Thumb Up

 Hi  Sudipto,
 
 Its  a  great  idea  of  bringing  out  a  magazine  for  all  of  us.  I  do  agree  with  many  of  the  members  on  gettting  1000  subscribers,  but  for  sure  it  will  not  be  a  difficult  task.  before  I  joined  IAH  I  didnt  know  anything  about  fish  keeping  and  now  I  can  proudly  talk  about  fish  keeping(  Thou  I'm  still  learning).  I  do  have  friends  who  have  got  into  the  hobby  of  fish  keeping  after  looking  what  I  do.  No  better  example  that  my  fiance  who  hated  the  sight  of  fish  (pets)  has  finally  developed  a  lil  passion  and  now  has  a  2  feet  planted  tank  with  angels  and  others  in  it.
 
                     Well  add  5  no:  to  the  subscribers  list  from  my  end.  Do  keep  us  updated  on  what  should  be  our  next  step  to  have  this  wonderful  magazine  out.
 
 Regards,
 Surya.

 Guys,
 Just  listen  and  understand.  Its  not  all  about  money.  Even  people  can  pay  Rs.  100/-  for  this.  But  as  I,  Nauzer  &  others  said  earlier,  Who  is  gonna  take  the  responsibility.  Confused
 
 GUYS  JUST  READ  IT  ONCE  MORE  BEFORE  POSTING  ANYTHING
   
 It  is  do-able  if  we  all  pay  for  it  and  dont  depend  upon  money  generated  from  advertisements!  
 But,  guys  who  will  contribute?  I  mean  if  the  administrators  have  a  hard  time  getting   contributions  for  the  site  who  will  work  for  the  magazine  -  let  someone  take  the  responsibility  for  the  editorial  work  -  remember  we  are  not  getting  volunteers  for  the  photo  competition  which  is  a  leasure  time  activity  than  this  is  a  much  responsible  duty!

 By  :  Nauzer  (AQUASCAPES)
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 The  scant  response  to  the  post  shows  that  it  will  be  difficult  getting  1000  subscribers  paying  Rs  50  each  for  such  a  magazine.  So,  perhaps  we  will  have  to  wait.  But  50k  is  the  bare  minimum  to  bring  out  something  decent  and  acceptable  -  provided  content  is  free.

 Well  we  can  always  have  a  pdf  magazine..  downlaod  and  read,  now  mostly  everything  is  Electronic....
 By  :  Sujoy  (JOYBAN)
 
 MY  QUESTION  :  Tell  me  who  is  gonna  work  for  this,  are  you?  I  am  damm  sure,  you  wont.  Crying or Very sad  
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
 Love  the  idea  of  an  indian  aquarium  magazine.
 I  have  no  doubts  about  the  content  of  this  magazine  as  there  are  so  many  experienced  and  talented  people  here.
 But  to  get  1000  subscribers  periodically  I  can't  say.  I  feel  it's  possible  since  the  price  tag  is  extremely  reasonable  Rs.50  every  2  months  does'nt  sound  like  it  could  hurt  anybody.  I  mean  since  we  are  a  community  of  people  who  are  passionate  about  the  hobby  I  am  sure  everybody  is  going  to  look  at  it  as  a  must  do.  It's  that  simple,  atleast  in  my  mind.  Hope  this  works.
 By  :  Harshal
 
 MY  QUESTION  AND  ANSWER  :  Agree  with  you,  but  question  is  still  there,  Are  you  gonna  the  1st  person  who  will  work  on  this.
 like  Nauzer  said  earlier  :  "I  mean  if  the  administrators  have  a  hard  time  getting   contributions  for  the  site  who  will  work  for  the  magazine  -  let  someone  take  the  responsibility  for  the  editorial  work  -  remember  we  are  not  getting  volunteers  for  the  photo  competition  which  is  a  leasure  time  activity  than  this  is  a  much  responsible  duty!"
 
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 its  a  great  idea!  
 I'm  sure  lot's  of  members  would  be  interesed.  
 just  why  not  run  a  poll?

 By  :  Nandu
 
 MY  QUESTION  AND  ANSWER  :  How  many  members  have  shown  their  interest  on  this  till  yet..  many  be  20,40  thats  it...  
 and  where  is  the  poll??  .......  No  where,  because  moderator  and  admins  know  it  better  than  us,  its  not  a  joke,  its  all  about  responsibility  &  no  1  wants  to  take  the  responsibility  on  his  shoulders.   Sad

 
 
 Admins,  Moderator  &  Friends,
 I  am  really  very  sorry  for  my  these  comments.
 Please  dont  take  it  otherwise,  there  is  no  personal  intension  behind  this.  This  is  just  what  I  feel  about  this  topic
 Please  correct  me,  if  I  am  wrong.  Sad

 I  would  say  djrocky  is  very  close  to  fact.
 
 The  price  of  the  magazine  is  not  the  main  problem  at  all.  We  all  know  the  crazy  ways  we  manage  to  divert  money  for  our  hobby.
 
 Neither  is  enthusiasm.  We  are  all  mostly  nuts  about  our  hobby.  
 
 The  problem  is  about  numbers.  What  djrocky  is  pointing  out  is  that  we  need  a  relatively  large  number  of  subscriptions  to  generate  about  Rs  50,000  every  2  months.  6  lakhs  a  year.  On  a  stable  basis.  A  one  shot  effort  may  be  pulled  off  but  these  are  numbers  that  one  can  manage  only  if  there  is  a  stable  base  of  subscribers.
 
 DJ's  other  point  about  material  for  the  magazine  is  also  partly  true.  If  there  are  100  of  us  who  participate  here  regularly,  100  of  us  who  subscribe,  100  of  us  who  contribute,  then  the  forum  is  more  than  enough  for  all  that.  As  for  the  pdf,  well  if  you  are  talking  about  sitting  and  reading  an  article  on  the  computer  this  site  more  than  adequately  serves  the  purpose.  So  do  I  see  any  hands  go  up  and  say  I  will  put  up  the  next  article  on  the  site?

 Yo  Guys,
 
 The  main  problem  will  be  collecting  enough  articles  for  the  magazine.  I  have  enough  magazine  publishing  experience  &   I  always  had  problems  getting  articles.  We  simply  do  not  have  enough  people  to  write  articles.
 
 The  next  problem  will  be  advertisers.  No  advertisers  =  no  magazine.

 Ravi,
 Dont  you  think  we  can  offer  our  ad  plan  to  all  LFS  over  India.  Just  note  it  down,  we  can  make  a  discussion  about  this  on  AQUATIKA  2007.
