==================== THE RSTL TEXT MAG ==================== The RSTL Text Mag is a publication made for the text division of the Rapmusic Story/Topic League. All stories, columns, articles are reported in the actions, exploits and events happening in the league. If you are interested in writing and submitting a story, you can contact Got Life on AIM @ E Got Life. MESSAGE FROM THE MODERATOR Let’s be honest the mag is something each and every one of us has missed because we all want to get credit for our writing, that’s why we take part in this league: 1) To improve our writing skills. 2) To garner recognition amongst our peers for being good at what we do. 3) To expand our minds and touch on different topics and become more versatile writers. 4) To get some accolades and see our name mentioned because it makes us all feel a little special. Whichever the case may be these weeks have definitely been trying for the league as it recovers from a recent downward slump. Sure there were some problems with voting in the past weeks before the league was shut down and Tek and I were brought on to get the ball rolling again, but that has quickly become a ghost of the past. Voting this week was actually rather on point as most matches got at least 5 votes cast on them, which is a nice turn around from matches that had 0 votes cast on them in simultaneous weeks. As far as the lapse with the mag is concerned, this is mag has always been for the people, by the people. I will continue putting my time in to write for this mag, but the help of the writers in the league to make it a stellar project as it once was is essential. Moving beyond from that note as far as changes with the line limits are concerned, please voice your opinions here. If the majority of the league does not want these line limits then come next week they shall no longer be here and that’ll be the end of that drama. Now that that has been all said and done the first week wasn’t exactly filled with as much enthusiasm as was seen when the league was shut down, but regardless we got the ball rolling with 28 heads. While 9 of them no-showed that is still a showing of 19 people. If you don’t think that’s impressive then you need to hop off your high horse because the most people that showed the entire span of the point system was one fluke week where 20 people showed for their matches. Unfortunately voting that first week was sub-par, but with the revival of the league these things can be expected and will be smoothed out as soon as possible.
