If it's going to be in magazine format, of course some selected YAH must make an appearence. There's already some spacer bar tales on a thread that can also be used.
In the meanwhile, here's some more ideas - way too many for me to handle, and some beyond my abilities, so I'll appreciate all volunteers...
GalCoop traffic safety campaign:
Upgrade your drivers safely
Only download OXPs from the Wiki"

For a smooth approach
Always align from the buoy"
(image: a Cobra III starting her docking sequence, near a buoy)
Always give assistence
Tomorrow you may need it"
(image: a trader attacking a pirate attacking another trader)
We protect the space lanes
Be safe. Keep to them"
(image: A formation of Vipers patrolling a busy space lane)
Piracy is punishable with fines
And summary execution"
(image: a pirate Fer-de-Lance being attacked by several Vipers)
Trumble recipes (two already on the boards, should be enough);
trumble removal ads (someone?);
and I'll write up an opinion interview with "the commander who's just arriving", where he explains how he "ex-terminated the #&!% pests" he got from an infested container...
the pink Miss Ooniverse lobstoid, or one of the pimped Cobras?
If we could get Jannah Berihn's Cobra III schematics watermarked on the background, the model to the fore and the technical data (no price tag, of course, since they became object of an OXP) on a box in the corner should do the trick. I'll ask her permission on the EBBS, let's see...
Anyways, that would serve well with a full page ship review (including pics)... someone?
selling/buying ships & equipment
parcels, passengers and freight deliveries
crew & job offers/requests
romantic/personal messages (including one or two so artificial that are obviously coded messages)
security, escort, bounty hunter & mercenary groups recruitment ads
The ten Most Wanted, their ships and their bounties
I'll keep them coming, please do so too. I don't believe many noobs will read the mag before playing, but it'll certainly entertain them (those who can read
, at least
) when they're properly directed...
