I read both magazines and both forums and just saw this posted as of this Saturday.  While I poersonally dont agree with the comment about being dated I can see what they mean by the comment about the forum.  Discuss

'...but I get all 3 major film mags every month (Empire, Total Film and Hotdog) and of the three, I can confidently say that Empire is by far the worst.....Hot Dog and Total Film are different magazines for different markets, but they both leave Empire looking cheap and dated (and with so much of the magazine these days consisting of contributions from the online forum, you might as well simply visit their message board instead)'

Somebody somewhere doesn't like us? The only surprise there is that they're not posting this stuff on our own forums.

Everyone knows the driving force behind Empire's sucess is it's forum. Especially off-topic where they get all their ideas.

There's not that much from the forum in the magazine. Only about 10 pages in the Star Wars memories issue were comments from the forum.

It's not like they just invite amateur reviews from the readers in an 'X Factor' style competition.

I dont mind ideas from the forum being used but I would object to the messages being used instead of actual staff writing, if that makes sense.  It did happen like this once about 7 issues ago when the big change happened and I got worried then.  Hasnt reared its ugly head since though.

There wasn't one Star Wars memory lifted from the forum.  Was there even a thread on it?

Demon's right - I believe those were emailed in. And Sporty, we did have an exercise in interactivity, but it was because we thought readers would like to be more involved. Turned out that you lazy gets wanted us to continue to do all the writing (although actually finding quotes from the forum and editing them to fit and getting everything in shape was pretty hard work too) so as ever we took your concerns on board and got back to the age old practice of ignoring everything y'all say.

Cool...please ignore anything I say in the future then.

Who is this mad fool on the SFX forum though?  Does he/she come on here?  Lets start a witch hunt



Oh and I have an idea for a feature (the whole interactivity thing) 'Movie Musings: Unsung Heros' if you havent seen it.  Plug plug

Funny how so much abuse about Empire is coming from a site which is related to Total Film in terms of the same publishing company.

Everyone has their own taste, I personally read Empire and Total Film and go on the forums but I prefer Empire (magazine and forums.) So There!
