"Simply put is simply said."

If we get 25 responses to this thread, then Uno will release the pre-last book Gazette's on a pre-determined and also an ad-hoc schedule, currently held under wraps by Narg sitting on them.

If we do not get 25 responses, then the Shayol Ghul Gazette is dead forever.

If you knew Alanna was a Darkfriend, then put that in the response also.

If you don't want anymore Gazette's feel free to tell us.

Well, of course we want it. Though I admit we are usually speechless when it comes to commenting on your lovely brainweeds.

What is this Gazette you speak of? Is it some kind of scarf?

does it have to be from 25 different posters or is 25 replies enough?

I mean, counting the same posts once again should give the same total. Assuming that you can count past ten, at least. Maybe you should've taken your shoes off?

It is possible, theoretically, that you meant that you count for two. For now, I will assume that you meant what you said, though.

Gonzo doesn't count, because he thinks he's funny, but he's not. Someone ought to tell him that.

I've been wondering why information about the Gazette is being posted in the "Your Fiction" section of the forum.

I mean, the Gazette isn't fiction is it? I always thought it was REAL HONEST-TO-GOODNESS NEWS. You know, like "all the news about Shayol Ghul that's fit to print".

Of course it is. We follow the best traditions of journalism in making things up as we go along.

I think the Gazette should be posted on General. I know we've had a policy in the past about keeping things serious there, but I think it makes more sense to keep all of the WoT stuff in one place with the exception of actual fanfic. That's not to say we should encourage random threads started for inane questions, etc., but I think the Gazette is thread-worthy there.

Well, that's good to know. :) With that in mind, now is the time when news from Shayol Ghul is probably most important. You know, Last Battle approaching and all that. Seems like it would be a useful thing to have (news from Shayol Ghul, that is).

Yes, really. Of course, I could just be someone pretending to be Gnat. I could answer a question only Gnat would know the answer to if that would help?

What is Gnat's favorite color?

Blue: but I never wear the colours of my Ajah.

What's more interesting is I don't remember Crispin at all. Which means that he, like me, has been recycled into a new username by the Great Lord of the Internet.

SDog. Apparently he decided after some time that the name was juvenile, so he chose instead a character from a children's book.

Sorry T...I tried but couldn't rep you for that. :(

As she said, Gnat, I used to go by SDog, but got tired of that name after so long. I retired it at 10,000 posts on Yuku.

IIRC, you were one of the founding members of the Land of Madmen and Madwomen back in the day. Of course, all six of us were founding members, and the only members. Ah well...

I do recall it, though only vaguely. It's been a long time, but I do remember you, SDog, along with one or two others. You can now join the elite group that calls me Gnat; in return, is it okay if I call you SDog? :D

I seem to remember that too.

I had no idea Zombie was Gnat. I guess the general buzzing noise when posting should have been a clue.

You may have mistaken it for a low-level "brains, brains" - which it is. It's the sound of a zombie insect which is also Sammael. The Great Lord is harsh with those who fail him.

Can I therefore call you Toast?

I am still proud of myself for the user title I gave you on the LoMM&MW. I doubt anyone else remembers it, though. LOL

It would appear then that some new Gazettes are indeed required and Uno and I shall deliver.

Now the questions are these:

a) Would you like more stories of "behind the scenes" Gazette staff and their happenings?
b) a reversion to the original charter of reporting the news of Thakandar?
c) snippets, snippets and more snippets
d) something totally different?
e) the return of Life Magazine?
f) all of the above?
g) any other variation of the above?

We have to finish this list at "g" because "G" is for Gazette!
