You seemingly messed up the project links. The Picture for Tale of Two Kingdoms image redirects to the Super Mario Fantasy topic and both links for Super Mario Fantasy redirect to Super Mario Bros. ReDeluxe'd.

For a bit then I though that the "Hotfix 1" refered to Patch 1 :P

Fixed. The reason these issues occured is because i just copied the formatting from the previous newsletter. I guess I must have missed some URLs.

I aim to get it back up and running soon with a larger issue encompassing the past 2 months. I've been sorta busy recently and this hasn't been the greatest priority of mine (plus i keep forgetting about it).

Set yourself a reminder if you wish to stop forgetting.

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Ha :)
I'm planning to just release a new issue in December. I think it makes more sense to do one at the end of the year covering the past 6 months worth of content and then after that release one every 3 months. The issues will be bigger and there will be less of them, but I think it will be more manageable this way. Thoughts?

I also tested out a new channel in the main SMBX server whose purpose was for people to send in contributions to the Newsletter. That didn't really work though as no-one posted anything they wanted to share in there. The main reason that idea came about was that it puts everything all in one place, making things more efficient on the Newsletter Team's end. Perhaps there's a better way to allow people to contribute?

I'm skeptical, as it never seemed particularly unmanagable, and a less frequent update cycle defeats the purpose of a _news_letter. Furthermore, skipping an issue of the newsletter seems all the more easy with less frequent post intervals. I'm open to see what happens, but currently my stance is that we just need a more dedicated person writing these if we want them to continue.

Actually.. I have literally just got an idea for an Issue I'd like to create pretty shortly. Trouble is, there's going to be a huge backlog of content that has been missed since the previous instalment. That's my fault though and I'm prepared to put the effort in.

So in essence, I'm part of the newsletter team and have been on the SMBX projects discord server. The problem on both was that no one was writing anything unless I specifically told them to or wrote stuff all by myself in the latter server. A few months ago, I told TayCamGame to be in charge of designating stuff to write instead since this semester in college, I have extremely difficult classes. Basically in both of these if I became busy or unavailable no one else in the newsletter team started to do stuff by themselves. The latter was solved since it was a projects server, we just let the projects owner submit announcements about their projects in project-news channel. TayCamGame tried to do something similar with the SMBX discord, but since the servers have different use-cases, there was really not much traction that went on.
