As for the hybrid mark controversy, they are deserving of being included in the news letter for reasons previously stated. Yes, they will never be used in game. But that was never the intention, as is my understanding. They're just fun little images. I used the Darkness/Aether hybrid mark as my avatar at one point because they were my two favorite elements, and represented my favorite deck, Pestal. Others use them for hypothetical dual elements card ideas, which, while not practical, are fun! The fact is, a lot of us put a lot of work into making those over the years, and that's worthy of mentioning.

Spoiler for Unrustle your jimmies:

If Vrt's complaint is lack of appreciation for his own work...Well, considering that everyone here <3's him, his work gets in the game, he was featured in the last newsletter...Sir, I'm not certain what it is you want :|

As for Oni's .gif complaint, I kinda agree. While I have no issue with gifs myself, some users do; and honestly, it...Takes away from the newspapery-ness imo. Simple solution: Feature a member whose avatar is a gif? Make a jpeg out of it. Taadaaa. ^_^

I love all the newsletters, and I do agree that anything which takes up --too-- much space can be spoilered.

Also, maybe you can allow the Newsletters to be a little more interactive, perhaps leaving a little question at the end and featuring the most creative answer in the next newsletter. More often than not the responses to the Newsletters are "Good job, I liked it" and to be honest, not much more than that can be put.

Just an idea..

Oh, I love that idea. You could post a question and the most funny answer gets featured. But you could also post a certain card and feature the most innovative, yet playable, deck containing the card and its creator in the next edition. Those are just 2 out of a hundred ideas. Something that's somehow interactive is definetly a great idea.

As for the Card Idea section, the table isn't completely necessary, as they should be linked to the card's original thread to see the, what I feel is more important, NOTES.  And I could probably just spoiler segments of my submissions.

i generally agree with vrt's feeling on this one.  while a collective effort was put in for the hybrid marks, and i dont dispute that it was worthy of inclusion, it was given a disproportionate amount of space relative to its actual impact.  hybrid marks are really a just-for-fun thing for emerald tiger and a few others who enjoy playing with them, but have minimal impact beyond that.  a link to the thread probably would have been sufficient, or at least putting it in a spoiler tag.

personally i enjoy art even more when i know the artists, and there are a number of very talented artists here, several of whom have had their art put into game, and others such as kami, thalas and a few others, who to my knowledge have not (yet) seen their art put in game.  when art makes it into the game, it may be worthwhile to have more attention given to it, ask the artist questions about it, and/or ask them for any supplementary pieces which may broaden the understanding of the piece.

on a side note- the same potential for a mini-interview could be extended to those who designed cards which made it into the game.  i understand that this could sound self serving, but considering my card designing is just about over, unless zanz goes back through my portfolio and finds something he missed, it isn't likely be relevant to myself.

Random ideas: Let a member of this community have something like a "monthly rant". Could be humorous, wouldn't have to be. Topic could be anything related to this community or Elements in general.

Interesting. Would have to be appropriate of course.

While I haven't talked this over with wiidgc, and I do appreciate feedback, I don't think that is a path to go down.
If it were to be implemented, I feel it would most definitely need to be funny so to avoid offending/upsetting/angering people as well as sparking completely avoidable arguements in the NewsLetter thread.
Then there's a matter of choosing who should rant, about what, is it appropriate, is it relevant, is it valid. And in all honesty, I don't think it would bring the community any closer together.
~Thanks for the suggestion!

@Opsinis: I disagree, but I can understand you not really wanting to take risks. You could also do the exact opposite, a "monthly eulogy" (that probably sounds idiotic) where someone (always the same one? or maybe let anyone send it in, and decide which one to include?) says what great thing he experienced in this community and, if that's not too cheesy, what everyone can learn from it. Could be anything, perhaps an especially fair opponent in PvP, a TO really making an effort to improve tournament rules (Hello Vineroz), a user hosting a fun PvP challenge (*cough*), or whatver.
