offtopic:ah.com_newspaper Newspaper

The Newspaper is a new source of news and information for forum-users. It features an editorial section that primarily focuses on forum politics (originally Politics, now the Sandbox Republic) with two other sections about timelines and forum happenings. Demosthenes was the first Managing Editor of the Newspaper. Glen is a member of its Editorial Board.

Every once in a while it publishes a 'Special Edition' featuring some breaking news of some major event. An example of this is when long-famed member Midgard returned.

It is (in theory) published on the Non-Political Chat page every Saturday or Sunday, and is bumped throughout the weekend. Its slogan has been “Your Weekly Source of Calcium”, amended in its second reboot to “Your Daily(ish) Source of Calcium”.

In July of 2009, the Paper was revived by maverick.

In late 2010, The_Wandering_Poet revived the paper once again. In December of 2010, MNP was named Associate Editor of the paper.

By November, 2012, the newspaper had been out of print for over a year and a half. Legend held that when it was next revived would have entered a new period of cultural brilliance that would out-shine that of even the brightest of forums. Late in that month, Derekc2,'s historical romanticist, revived the newspaper again.
