Hey mate, thanks for posting these. Although if you could put in a short introduction in the "intro" box with some basic information like what date the issue is from, and whether it has a theme or what it mostly covers that would be great!

Yeah sorry, I kind of mucked up the Child-page stuff as well. I'll fix it now.

Edit: How do I delete the child pages. I accidentally added issues 3-5 as a child of issue 2 itself rather than the whole.

Hey, should be sorted now in terms of the ordering. Also, you now have permissions to approve your own edits when you add intros etc.

Also, I have changed your naming of the issues slightly to fit with how we do other publications on the site. Also by using double digits it means they will all automatically go in order (otherwise after 9 the order gets messed up). Thanks very much for this!

Thanks for the help and tips! I'll try and continue to post 5 or so at a time as I visit the library to study.

I've modified all the previous entries and added issues 10 and 11. I'll add the rest and tidy everything up later...

Archive complete! I might transcribe some stuff later, unless someone else wants to do it.

Poor Berkman, he turned from the pistol to the press (the "Blast" isn't all that subtle) and they still shut him down. Just can't win!
