This would also be a good place for Lone Wolf articles for S & P that didn't make it for whatever reason.
It's a nice idea
However, you'll need Mongoose's permission, as they own the submitted articles even if they decide not to use them.
Of course, *then* you'll run into the problem of a writer saying that Mongoose giving the article to someone to put online constitutes publication and they could then argue that they want paying for it as if it had gone into the mag.
I wish I didn't come out sounding like I'm shooting the idea down... I really hate thinking of the amount of material that's been written and is sitting around "invisible" to everyone, but the legal issues just seem to make it problematic
If anyone sees a way out of this, please post it
My personal preference would be for things that didn't make it to S&P going into an "S&P Online", something like SJGames' Online Pyramid mag, a subscription-based service where the revenues could be used to pay the writers of the articles even though they weren't used in the mag proper.
Other than that, personally I'm quite happy to write a freebie scenario (possibly based upon one of the ideas I've put in the "101" thread), and will throw it at the site the second I can find the time to write it and PDF-ize it
