New Mars Articles

I noticed today that the subforum "NewMars Articles" is sitting, archived and locked, at the bottom of the forum.

Given that there's been some discussion of increasing original content on NewMars.com and trying to shine something of a light on it, might we want to bring that subforum back to active status to discuss articles that have been posted and also for people to propose articles?

Relatedly, sometimes we have a really good thread that seems like it might deserve a writeup.  Is this the kind of content we should be putting on NewMars.com?

Re: New Mars Articles

While I'm making suggestions:

We don't seem to have ever gotten our old logo back on top of the site.  I quite liked that logo.  I'm open to other designs too (logo design contest?) but it would be cool to have something a little nicer than what we have right now.

The logo at the top used to link back to the forum index too, which was nice.  We might want to consider putting a link somewhere (On the bar with "Index" "User List" etc maybe?) back to NewMars.com if we're going to be posting content there.

Just some ideas for discussion and consideration, anyway.  The forum has had 100% uptime for the last year or so which is the most important thing.

Re: New Mars Articles

Yup, there it is!  Would that version be high-res enough to use?

Re: New Mars Articles

Hey guys!

I took the engine we were talking about in the "Steam Engines on Mars" thread and wrote it up into an article on Newmars:

Hopefully more to come!

Re: New Mars Articles

That was nicely done and still expressed that we are still not done yet with all of what it will take.

Thanks for doing that....
