Editors note iShyGuy

Welcome to Issue #19 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

The Bootleggers Buzz is back! Since FlameS and Joke have both real life obligations, I suggested the Elite Guard to take over the job as Buzz Editor. Do not worry, when Joke or FlameS is available again, you won’t be seeing my good looking face anymore. For those who do not know me, my name is ShyGuy and I happily present you the Bootleggers Buzz Issue #19. An issue where things are pretty much different than the previous issues. I truly hope you all share your feedback and most important; I hope you enjoy the articles. Many thumbs up for all our writers, freelancers included, because they all made this possible. Thank you very much!

So, it has been approximately one month since our last Buzz Issue and a lot happened. Well, you won’t find the articles of all the events during this last month, as that seems to be pretty pointless. Fortunately we covered all the recent events, such as the shooting on The Vanguard, 23rd Gunslingers Co. and Veni Vidi Vici. I really suggest you check out those articles, because we now use a different style of writing articles which make the articles even more awesome. So, that sums up the news for now, but there is more in this issue!

Columns, columns, columns everywhere! This week we have a nice stock of columns for you. Let’s start with the column regarding the Facebook page of Bootleggers. We at the Buzz noted a significant change compared to a month ago of the total amount of likes. Is this the start of an advertising campaign of the Elite Guard? Anything else? Positive, our new writer Inky wrote an article regarding politics and precautionary measures of the happening with Dutch Inc. and The Vanguard. As awesome as she is, she also wrote a column about rankism, a subject which never bores.

Finally, we have a completely new lay-out of the behind the name article. From now on each two weeks we interview a well-known player of Bootleggers. Do not forget to check it out together with the other weekly articles, such as once upon a time and the oh so interesting obituaries. On behalf of the entire Buzz Team I’d like to thank you all for the kind words we received so far and I truly hope you all enjoy this week’s issue. Enjoy the read and have a good Sunday. Till next week, as usual!
