Like, the challenge is to make an A6 page (quarter A4) every day, with prompts provided if you need them, and at the end you put them together into a zine and make copies and then folks can trade a lot. :)
Testing some names...
Zinetober <-- TAKEN
I could make a printable A4 PDF with page numbers on it, and then folks could just print it, zineify it, and then photocopy-cut-staple it at the end. (Or stitch it, I like to stitch my zines because staplers are the work of the devil.)
@cassolotl hmm. One page? It's 8 pages. I'm not sure I understand your question. But the format on 8p.cx is very "strict" indeed. 8 pages. No more, no less. But that's also a nice way to frame a zine. Anyway, as with any #zanuary or else, people can choose their own adventure. It would just be a nice suggestion and platform for distribution.
@cassolotl the feature I like the most with 8p.cx is they bring back the concept of a "unique copy" to the digital world. You choose your format (a4, us legal) and then you generate a numbered pdf. Which makes it yours and yours only. It suddenly becomes valuable because the creator gets the number 1 "print". Subsequent dowloaders have a different number each time. It becomes a tradable object.
@seaw It is for if you like to read zines as well as if you like to make them. Plus you contributed to my zine, and maybe someone else will put out a call for submissions that makes you go "oooooo"! So I feel like you'd fit in well in the group. But if it still doesn't sound like your thing that is totally fine, of course!
