Each issue we aim to give you a chance to tell us what you
think about a particular subject. In future issues we aim to
find out what kind of games you play, what articles you
would like to read, and so on.
This issue though, we're focussing on a more narrow issue, specifically whether a letter we received was a bit out of order, as we thought, or if we're just a bunch of cry-babies who need to grow up and get wise.
When we began to create the first issue (the one you're reading now) we put up an initial advert page, which you may have read. This explained what Critical Miss was about, and included a form where people could "subscribe" . We also began trying to get our URL included on various directories.
One of the directories we approached was Newhoo, which is a non-profit making organisation aiming to create "the largest human-edited directory of the web" using "a vast army of volunteer editors."
We applied to go onto their roleplaying section, and were rejected, on the grounds that our site was still being prepared. Fair point. When we thought about it we probably even agreed with the decision. But it was the way it was delivered that got us, frankly, a little bit narked.
This is the letter we received from a "volunteer editor" is response to our application
From: Xxxxxx XxxxxNow if this had been Yahoo patronising us we would have been ecstatic - just to get a reply from the mighty Yahoo. But Newhoo is not Yahoo by any stretch of the imagination.
