Frontier Pop. Know Things. A publication of the Frontier Society.

Frontier Pop. Know things.

Frontier Pop issue 56 for August 2013: Back on Track.UPDATE 11/15/14/1638 - Frontier Pop will resume monthly publication starting with the December 2014 issue.
Expect new marketing tools, too, such as business cards, shirts, flyers, pens, mugs, cups, bumper stickers, pins, swag, swag bags, and much more, all sporting our cool logo which can be seen above, as well as our Frontier Pop branding and our slogan “Know Things”.
Frontier Pop is planning our first official coverage of conventions and other events in 2015, as well, which would explain the creation and the stockpiling of new marketing tools. We will be covering events with comprehensive articles, interviews, video, and photography, including cosplay photography, at a professional, polished level which has never been experienced in Florida before. We will set the new standard in event coverage, and will maintain the standard. Frontier Pop will also cover independent film festivals and similar events from our pop culture angle, sharing resources with sister site Tampa Bay Film, which will cover them from an independent film and film festival angle.
Expect interviews with cool people and celebrities to be a major feature of this web site and our issues starting in 2015, too, as we are now working on a lot of interviews, ranging from local interviews to overseas interviews, for upcoming issues of Frontier Pop, starting with an interview with the video game development team out of Sweden which is responsible for one of our favorite 3DS video games, Steamworld Dig! Other than interviews, too, you can expect a lot of features covering video games and technology, two subjects with which we are the top experts in Florida!
We are planning 12 new issues for 2015, and the site will see updates several times a week.
Incomplete and placeholder issues of the past will also be completed at the rate of several per month, and links to those new and updated issues will be referenced from the current issues and the front page of Frontier Pop. Note, however, that even with several issues being produced a month, that it will take several years for us to catch up on our backlog of work and make our volume and issue number accurate, although that backlog will not interfere with the publication of our new monthly issues, as those have priority.
When we do catch up, however, expect a massive party to celebrate, DJ’ed by our very own resident DJ, DJ Frontier!
Frontier Pop branding will also be reenforced with the official DJ Frontier web site, a new Frontier Society web site, a successor to the Frontier Society subculture and its new web site, the DJ Wiz Kid and VJ Frontier web sites, two additional DJ Frontier web sites, and perhaps one more web site.
DJ Frontier, after starting out as the popular underground DJ known as DJ Wiz Kid in late 1990, and becoming DJ Frontier in early 1993, and starting with his 22nd release in 1994 and working until 1998, when he took a break from producing, will resume his career in 2015 with new releases, podcasts, events, an online television series, and more projects! DJ Frontier, after years of research and development, which went into high gear from 2008 to the present, has also figured out new ways of producing events, which includes new formats for making his interactive theme events cost-effective and awesome! That dream which began in 1988 of doing the best events in the Tampa Bay area is about to come true!
Regarding the official online publication, Frontier Pop, this site will more than earn its claim of being the top Tampa Bay pop culture and entertainment publication in 2015.

UPDATE 10/03/14/1006 - It’s been a long Summer.
With the development hell that Tampa Bay Film has been experiencing (that should be completed and finally updated by this weekend), and emergency, fast-tracked work on the Aurora PhotoArts Mosaic Class and Spectacle Class sites and support infrastructure, which are also way behind schedule, it looks like it will be November before we can get Frontier Pop back on track.
Don’t worry, however, as it will be worth the wait. After we resume publication, too, at the very least, you can expect a new issue of Frontier Pop every month, although we will also work on getting the past and missing issues done; these issues will be referenced from here on the front page of Frontier Pop, as well as from the current issues, as they are completed and published, so expect a lot of this awesome bonus content, which are literally entirely new or updated issues, along with your monthly Frontier Pop issue goodness, and remember that all issues remain in play, so you will get updates on previously published issues on top of all that, for more rich goodness! We will get to the point that we will be back to publishing once a week, although, officially, we will be publishing “monthly”. Honestly, though, there are so many incomplete and missing issues that it is going to literally take years to get caught up, even on a weekly publication schedule which allows us to generate content over four times the usual rate, and that’s perfectly fine. Let it take years. We can afford to work a long term plan, and so can you, although none of you will notice with regular issues being published. We just are not going to take short cuts and skimp on anything, and will not compromise on the quality and the content of this web site, so what ends up being published will be worth it. We are always worth the wait. The same can’t be said of others.
As more and more of our backdated and backlogged content is published, it will be harder and harder to find any evidence on this site that we are behind, or that we ever were. These lean times will soon be forgotten in an environment, and times, of plenty.
Give us credit, though. This site, while on standby, has hardly been abandoned. We have done a lot of work to it recently, including the addition of an official logo (and now we are thankful for the delays, as we can now incorporate that logo into our marketing materials, tools, and swag. Things are even better, now, after the wait, with more work into everything). Much of the work has been under the hood and behind the scenes on support infrastructure which the site will depend upon; just because it can’t be seen or observed does not mean that it does not exist or that it does not make a difference.
Frontier Pop will soon be..... everywhere. We will be covering relevant events and sharing resource with sister properties such as Tampa Bay Film. We will have Frontier Pop shirts, cards, bumper stickers, cups, mugs, pens, hats, swag, and other branded items. We will also be using Frontier Pop as the perfect marketing platform for sponsors, as well as our photography, design, and event planning companies.
Frontier Pop is our most important web site, as well as one of our main properties. Just like the photography event business which used to be known as Tampa Shootouts, it is pushed and has a critical purpose so that, by default, it can’t fail, and it won’t; it is part of support infrastructure for a lot of other things.
We have just been very, very busy, and have been crushed by important work that is almost done at this point.
In format related issues, we are currently debating whether to keep the Reader Reaction section at the bottom of every issue. It’s great. Evil Nolan, Tez, Blessings, and the others may be an ongoing interactive feature. After all, we did win the pop culture site war in Tampa Bay..... Tez has sat back and let Jason update Nolan’s once great pop culture review web site, which we now refer to as “Jason’s site”, and Nolan is now out of the game, “retired”, reminding us of the invalid and impotent wheelchair bound and bell-ringing Hector Salamanca from “Breaking Bad” (Rick thinks that this comparison is mean, but with Nolan giving up his web site and unable to do anything anymore, it’s pretty accurate, as well as hilarious at Nolan’s expense. Hey, we did not give up and quit. It has to eat Nolan up knowing that he is no longer in the game and that life goes on without him). Don’t worry, Nolan, we will be the Gus to your Hector, and will visit you in the nursing home to fill you in on what is going on and what we are accomplishing. We’ll just make sure to check under the chair every time.
Aurora PhotoArts gets priority this month, once Tampa Bay Film is up to speed, because of resource issues which must be resolved. Aurora PhotoArts needs to get up to speed by next month.
We are still working on things, though. The official Frontier Pop podcast and multimedia projects will be online in 2015, as well as the resumption of the career of DJ Frontier, and the Frontier Society subculture, founded in 1993, will have a new public brand and web site, although the old site will relaunch using a new Pioneer Class web site, will also remain online, and will be updated as the legacy old school web site. The Frontier Society will be renamed this Fall, on its 21st anniversary, which will be yet another crippling blow to the cybersquatter who took the original domain name and who is trying to exploit the brand by forwarding the domain name to some crappy, lame “invention” web site.
Then there is DJ Frontier. Although we briefly looked into the idea of changing the DJ Frontier name brand to another name a few weeks ago, which would have had not affected the Frontier Pop branding, the DJ Frontier name and brand will be maintained and expanded, while retaining an option on the new name, as it is a great name. Others who insist on calling themselves “DJ Frontier” will soon come to terms with the legal consequences.
The new branding of the Frontier Society and another dedicated domain web site will further enhance the DJ Frontier brand. Expect more Pioneer Class web sites to be built and deployed, much like the one which Frontier Pop uses, especially as two older ones are about to be decommissioned. The Celebrity Class web site which will eventually be used for the DJ Frontier web site and the legacy DJ Wiz Kid web site are still in development, and we are going to get those web sites online, in the meantime, with what we have to work with, which are Pioneer Class web sites. That’s right, just like the one which Frontier Pop uses.

UPDATE 08/03/14/1531 - Progress is being made on the new format for Frontier Pop. Because it is scalable, however, it makes it easier for us because we do not have to roll it out all at once (the scalable format is also completely compatible with our previous issues, so that is great!). We don’t have to go for an all or nothing approach, something which is delaying updates to Tampa Bay Film, but which is an problem which won’t plague that site much longer due to breakthroughs made here at Frontier Pop. This is at least one advantage to spreading development and work over several web sites and properties.
We will have an August issue. Due to everything else that we have going on, though, it will be a small one, with the option to expand it when we have more time; right now, we have to finish updating Tampa Bay Film, write content for starter web sites which we have to buy a bunch of domain names for at the end of the week, get the new online film festival, sans reviews, online by next weekend, and design and order some business cards, as well as some shirts, this week to make a deadline. We just want to publish an issue, introduce some new things such as our logo, resume our monthly publication, and move on (in fairness, Nolan did some tiny issues on his pop culture site, too, so it’s all good, especially since his writing was always a good read, as it was all about quality, he was a good writer, and he knew what he was writing about). It will be a good issue, and it will be a complete issue, and that’s good enough for us, as well as our readers.
We have a lot of cool things in the works, however, such as the first of our interviews, which will start with a Swedish video game developer for the September issue as we feature their game, an awesome platformer video game which has become one of our favorites.
September’s issue will be larger, with more features of the new format, and the format of Frontier Pop will evolve substantially over the next few months, with those changes being instantly retro-applied to everything published before on Frontier Pop.
These are exciting times!

UPDATE 08/01/14/1129 - Frontier Pop, with starting with the August 2014 issue, will see an updated format, which includes a new main menu.
Our menu is outdated, and needs to be updated.
An example is in the “Current” menu option. In the old days, new issues of Frontier Pop were published on the home page, and then moved to archive with new issues. This is no longer the case, as issues are now published in the issues section, and the front page is more of a front-end for the most current issues. So, that will be changed to “Home”, or simply “Frontier Pop”.
We are looking at cutting down on all of the social media buttons, too. We don’t use most of them. We need to use what we have, however.
Regarding our back issues, most of them are so incomplete that they are far below the quality that our readers, or this site, deserve. We will downplay past issues while we focus on new issues full of compelling content. We will get to those back issues when we get to them, and work our way back. By then, we will have at least 6 full, new issues, so it won’t really matter as much. Past issues and new issues of missing issues will be updated with our logo and will be completed, with the date of the issue emulated in the content.
One reason that we will complete out incomplete and publish our missing issues is to make sure that the issue count is accurate. We estimate that it will take at least three years to catch up with those past issues.
Content of all issues, which include past ones which are updated, will be organized into subject-relevant sections, with parts of each issue published in subject section and routed, via links, back to the main issue body, which will have enough content to support itself. This will prevent people from easily printing out issues, which needs to be discouraged, anyway, because all issues remain in play, and are updated. The only way to ensure that our readers have the most current version of our issues is to make them read the site.
That said, we are not 100% decided on how to do that. We may publish a light version on the issue page, with links to expanded subject-relevant sections. That way we get the best of both worlds. We will decide this as we work on the August issue.
The editorial and the letters section, where the letters section is relevant, will be moved to the main issue page to give it some content. They will be removed from the main menu, making the new format dramatically different.
With that, we look forward to resuming publication starting with the August issue in a few days.

UPDATE 07/31/14/1001 - Our podcast section has been updated. Our official podcast series for Frontier Pop will debut in 2015.

UPDATE 07/31/14/0958 - A few more days......
Due to work being behind schedule on Tampa Bay Film, the August issue of Frontier Pop will be delayed by a few days.
At least until Tuesday, August 5, 2014.
Regarding Tampa Bay Film, the site needed some major work done which was unplanned, such as the addition of support sections, java locks, meta content, and navigation threads installed, before we could add content. When it went online last year, it was incomplete, and we found that out the hard way when we began trying to add content; this led to major delays which affected work on other sites. We are also trying to publish updated archived content and get the online film festival back online, which will require a total refresh of the site files on the server, in the latter case, to bring that online and to properly support that feature. Tampa Bay Film has not been updated for the past two months because of all of this work. Tampa Bay Film will also need an arsenal of offensive tools to make some unethical, unprofessional people accountable, too, as the independent film war in Tampa Bay looks to continue, at least on a cold to lukewarm war level, for years to come; it began in 2008, and there is no end in sight at this point, as some people have not learned their lesson and do not know, or accept, when they have been defeated.. Tampa Bay Film is currently building and mobilizing a fleet of Revolution Class web sites, and they should all be in place and fully operational by 2015, with integrated support from sister sites Tampa Bay Talent, Tampa Bay Acting, and some other (currently secret) support sites, including some advanced third generation talent resource sites due online in 2015 (that ongoing war may be low-key, but it will be extremely effective and efficient, and will make what happened between 2008 to 2012 look like a simple exercise when you weigh in the cost-effectiveness of the offensive action and the results achieved. Unethical and unprofessional independent filmmakers will find themselves cut off from support and resources as early as 2015, and completely by 2016, ironically the end result of what they have been trying to achieve themselves, unethically, as they attack others through slanderous credibility attacks and ganging up on people. We will do it the right way, however, showing everyone how it is done, and will be professional, ethical, and smart about it).
On that note, some support work needs to be done to Frontier Pop, too, as our site format is being adjusted. We are loving our new logo, though! Oh, and we did get an early start to work on the August issue, so it is well along. It just won’t be ready tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience.

UPDATE 07/24/14/0932 - Effective immediately, Frontier Pop will cease any actions which may taint our credibility and opinions. While we retain that ability, and the right, to aggressively address issues that come up, such actions will be a last resort. We need to be both diplomatic and open minded, while maintaining a balance with being critical (These same rules will apply to Tampa Bay Film and our sister sites).
This means that the Reader Reaction parody will be discontinued, and removed where it has already been published, as entertaining as it may have been.
This does not mean that our opinions about certain things have changed, nor is this any admission of wrongdoing.
It’s about dignity and professionalism. We are working toward creating a publication that even our most dedicated critics and opponents can respect.
There are certain things that we will be writing about where we have to be critical, and we will make points to support our criticism which support our opinions and cannot be ignored or dismissed. Being seen as an aggressor or perceived as having an axe to grind would undermine our journalistic credibility, and that is something that we have to avoid.
We have won past conflicts, and we are moving on. We know who to support..... As well as who not to support. There are people out there who do not need to be called out or slammed, especially since it is overkill; what they do they do to themselves.
Regardless of how we feel about someone or something, we will not allow those feelings to influence our editorial content or our reviews.

07/23/14/0938 - INCOMING FOR THE AUGUST 2014 ISSUE OF FRONTIER POP: "Game On" - Crazed Fanboy / Pop Culture Review VS Frontier Pop war and the results. Old school video games. The trade-offs of event, such as convention and film festival, duration. Frontier Pop: Into the future. The myths about GMO. Oculus Rift: Virtual Reality comes of age. Video game reviews.

UPDATE 07/22/14/0915 - Updated the format of the support files to prepare for what is coming. We designed and added our official logo today, too, which can be seen at the upper left, now! The official Frontier Pop business cards and shirts are coming in August, as well as hats, cups, bumper stickers, swag bags, and other cool things, and we will start covering the major pop culture and fan conventions in Florida starting in 2015, once the site is up to speed and in order. Speaking of August, we will be working on the August issue this weekend, which is officially Issue 68 of Volume 5, and are on track to publishing it on time. We will concentrate on our regular monthly issues for the near future, and then will also work on the missing and incomplete back issues once we have the time, with a regular monthly issue and up to three back issues published every month (That said, it will take years, literally, to catch up). Passinault also decided today to bring back the Reader Reactor parody comment section on each issue.

UPDATE 07/07/14 - The July issue has been delayed until August, and the June issue will be done later. It will take more time than we have at the moment, as we are busy working on other web sites (We are launching five new web sites this month, in addition to work on Tampa Bay Modeling, Independent Modeling, a new Florida Models web site, and the start of mass production of the Mosaic Class web sites for Aurora PhotoArts, as well as contract work and marketing tool fabrication work for Aurora PhotoArts. We are currently one month behind, and it will take us at least two to three weeks to catch up. This leaves us no time at all to work on Frontier Pop, as our plate is overflowing). Additionally, the issue on black projects and on defeating stealth technology is not a simple one, and we also have to work on a new format for the site.
The June issue, when retro produced, will be about another subject.
Sorry about the delay, and we shall see you in August 2014!

UPDATE 05/02/14 - Until we resume publishing next month, bow down and take a drink from the fountain of knowledge with issue 56 of Frontier Pop for August 2013. It is our largest issue ever, and it’s a really great read!

UPDATE 05/01/14 - Frontier Pop will resume publication of monthly issues in June 2014, which is next month. The Volume and Issue count will correspond with the time that has passed for continuity reasons, which means that we will have massive gaps in back issues which will need to be filled over time. This means that we will have to write and publish those back issues for those missing months. Along with those new monthly issues, we will write and publish at least two additional issues per month. This may sound like a lot, but the gap of missing issues is so large, that even with this aggressive publishing schedule it will take well into 2016 before we are caught up.
The emphasis in writing and publishing “new” old issues will be on the most recent ones, and we will work our way back from the present to the past. For current events on those months, we will obviously have to do some research for what happened in those past months. All “new” past issues will be written in the tense of those published months, as they would have read if they had been published in those time frames with no knowledge of the future. We will obviously publish disclaimers and clarify things if there is any chance that we could mislead our readers, which is obviously something that we want to avoid; expect a special disclaimer for this situation.
The next issue of Frontier Pop will be a special one about stealth technology and how to defeat it, as well as types of stealth and how to make it work effectively. We will also be talking about black projects and secrets. Don’t miss it!
We would like to thank all of our readers for their patience!

UPDATE 11/17/13 - Frontier Pop is on hold for the remainder of 2013, as we do not have time at the moment to give this online publication the time and the work which both it, and you, our readers, deserve. This site is also undergoing an overhaul and the addition of a new format, which stalled work on the September and the October issues. We intend to resume publication in 2014, at which time we will be publishing new issues on a monthly basis. Back issues will also be published, as planned, at the rate of at least one per month, so that our volume and issue numbers are consistent. Obviously, this means that the issues for September, October, November, and December 2013 will eventually be published, as well as any issues that we miss in 2014 (We are keeping track). These new delays are directly attributed to the fabrication and the deployment of the fleet of new Mosaic Class marketing and support web sites for Aurora PhotoArts, which, as of now, have priority until Spring 2014 (work on all other web sites and writing projects have been diverted to this project, which is behind schedule. Scheduled overhauls and the launch of new web sites for the talent resource sites have also been delayed, as well as work on front line web sites such as Tampa Bay Film). Obviously, because of past delays of issues which were not done, added to these new delays, we will not be caught up until sometime in late 2015, at which time the site will be up to its full potential, although we will be fully operational and regularly updated sometime in 2014. We have not abandoned the site, and this site is extremely important, especially since it will be needed for some extremely important projects which have not yet been revealed or announced. We will be discontinuing some features, such as the parody features (parts of the reader reaction section) in which we mock certain people, primarily because we want Frontier Pop to be taken seriously as a top online publication (You will see why starting in 2014. We want to land some interviews and do some stories, and we won’t be able to do that if the credibility of the web site is in question because of anything which could be perceived as petty, amateurish, or unprofessional; we will not sell the potential of this web site short. Some of those interviews will be with sources which mainstream magazines and news media would want to land, so, obviously, we need to step up our game and set some high standards). Thank you for your patience, and, in the meantime, feel free to read our library of already-published issues.

Frontier Pop is a publication of the Frontier Society, a secret underground cyber, arts, technology, and entertainment subculture in Tampa Bay, Florida, founded on October 26, 1993. What was to become Frontier Pop was founded in the Fall of 1998 as Colony Alpha, and published under the Frontier Pop branding and web site starting in July 2010; content from the original Colony Alpha will be updated, published, and maintained on Frontier Pop, including the lexicon, the arcade and the video game file support sections.
This makes us the first pop culture and entertainment web site in the Tampa Bay area.

For the current issue of Frontier Pop, please click on the cover image above, or on one of the issue image thumbnails and links below. Recently updated issues are also referenced on this page. Current issues of Frontier Pop, as of September 2013, are no longer published on this main index, and are published in our issue directory, which is their permanent location on the Frontier Pop web site. This is required due to the way that the articles of each issue link back to the host issue and other issues which also reference them.

RECENTLY UPDATED ISSUES OF FRONTIER POP

Frontier Pop issue 56 for August 2013: Back on Track.09/04/13/0901: Issue 56 for August 2013: “Back on Track”.
This issue, which was written over the entire month of August in order to help get Frontier Pop back on track and regularly publishing again, as well as to start the process of updating past issues and finishing incomplete issues, is the LARGEST single issue of Frontier Pop, EVER, and it should be, as it is the swan song for the old format of the web site. We are talking about over 45 pages upon initial publication, and it will only get larger over time (If you try to sit down and read this, do it at a computer, make yourself comfortable, and pack a lunch and lakes of tea; you're going to be there a while).
Highlights of this landmark, brilliant issue include:
Animal Crossing: New Leaf impressions and suggestions. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a video game for the Nintendo 3DS, and it is awesome.
An Artificial Life essay, in reference to Animal Crossing.
Video Game Emulation update.
The Frontier Society Reloaded.
News about the official DJ Frontier and DJ Wiz Kid web sites.
Tentative schedule for C. A. Passinault and his projects from 2013 to 2018, including web site, independent film, film festival, independent film industry, photography, and modeling plans.

Fronter Pop issue 50 for February 2013: The Love Issue09/04/13/0901: Frontier Pop Issue 50, for February, 2013, "The Love Issue". This issue is a special Valentine’s Day issue of Frontier Pop for 2013. It is about, well, love. It is a little about some ladies by the name of Kristen and Samantha, too, from failed relationships from over a decade ago.
It is also very controversial.
This issue is about heterosexual love, so fanboys need not apply. We know what you are into, and most people are not into that, despite what a vocal few may say! Upon reading this, one of our readers told us that we have a very 90's mindset, which we agree with and are proud of, but we disagree with what they are implying with that term. We do agree, however, with equal rights, although giving anyone special rights is, well, not a good thing. Equality is good.
We do think for ourselves, though, and refuse to think a certain way because the crowd, most of whom have been conditioned since childhood to accept certain things as normal, tell us that we have to think a certain way. Don’t.

Video Game Emulation on Frontier Pop!08/20/13/0909: Frontier Pop Issue 33 for September, 2011, "Video Game Emulation".
This issue of Frontier Pop is all about emulation, specifically video game emulation. We go into the legalities of video game emulation, the emulators, the rom files, and the recommended emulators for classic consoles and the arcade machines.
Emulators, basically, turn your computer into the video game console or arcade machine (coin op) being emulated. By themselves, emulators are perfectly legal. The rom files which are the actual game, however, are protected by copyright, and are not legal to play unless you own the game, in our opinion.
Although the legality of playing emulated games without owning the actual games is in question, it is possible, although illegal, to play perfect classic video games on your computer free of charge (please read the disclaimers in this issue. We do not recommend breaking the law, and you use this information at your own risk). Most of the time, the emulated games are perfect, but sometimes, due to missing support files or corrupted rom files, the games are not perfect. Galaga, for example, although it looks and plays perfectly, is missing some audio files. Super Castlevania IV for the Super NES crashes. Most emulated games , however, are perfect, although adjusting settings on in the emulator software is sometimes required.
Our favorite games for each emulator are also revealed in this issue. Most importantly, the top games of all time, recommended by C. A. Passinault, who is a video game expert and possibly one of the top experts in the country, are explored.
If you love video games, don’t miss this issue.
Like all issues, this issue remains in play, and is updated as-needed; it is the official issue covering this subject.


Welcome to Frontier Pop, Tampa Bay’s top pop culture and entertainment web site and online magazine. Updated as needed, with new issues published monthly, Frontier Pop is a publication of the Frontier Society.
Frontier Pop. Know things. As it is with our mother web site, the Frontier Society, Frontier Pop is considered to be a compendium of human knowledge, covering both mainstream and fringe subjects, with an emphasis on technology, cyberculture, and current events. There is, literally, information in this web site which you will not find anywhere else.
Frontier Pop began publication on July 20, 2010, with a weekly publishing schedule, which, eventually, in January 2011, was changed to a monthly schedule so that we could more time into the content of each issue. Although Frontier Pop does publish content delivered in issues, issues usually have a dominant subject, and serve as a subject-based dynamic document long after new issues are published. Issues are organized by month and by subjects covered. Also, no issue is ever final, and all issues remain in play, and are updated as needed. Additions to issues are referenced through links and synopses on current issues, which means that updated issues become an extension of current issues, and that our readers don’t miss a thing.
Fanboys..... Bow before your master. Frontier Pop. Know things.For readers who are short on time, we added an in-site search engine on Frontier Pop in September, 2013.
As of the September 2013 issue, we are now publishing individual articles which make up the content of each issue in their relevant category directories, with the articles referencing, primarily, their host issue, but also issues which share them. The body of each issue has the issue header information, which includes the month of publication and the title, past issue updates, a thought blog section, and an issue editorial under “initializing”. The main body includes links to each article, and the issue can be read, in its entirety, by simply clicking on the links going to the next article (or back to the previous one) from within the articles. Issues can be accessed from within the article by clicking on the host issue cover graphic at the top of the page, or through links. If the reader tries to read an article which is before the first article, or after the last article, they are brought back to the host issue. The articles can also be individually accessed from the main body of the host issue, or from our subject directories, which the articles are also referenced from upon publication.
It's Frontier Pop! Frontier Pop. Know things.The rest of the issue body, after the article links, consists of the closing statement and preview of the next issue in the “Initialized and set” section, as well as reader and character comments in the Reader Reaction section, which is primarily published for entertainment and parody purposes, as well as real reader feedback and debate. The Reader Reaction section is a mix of characters and parody characters that we create and write for, often with pop culture references, as well as real readers, who we do not write for.
