After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

It's definitely an Apple issue. It loads just fine in Adobe programs (any of them: Acrobat, Reader, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc) but refuses to load in Preview, iBooks (after transferring to an iOS device), and any other Apple software.

Just to confirm it, they even load in the Kindle app on my iPhone. So it's not like they only work in Adobe software, they just only don't work in Apple software.

Just a heads up, but for whatever reason these will not convert into a useable epub format if you are a nook user. The PDFs will display but the text is be really small and the text size function is useless for PDFs.

If any one has any suggestions on how to convert them to epub, I would be eternally grateful. I have been using calibre and have never run into an issue like this before with any pdf I have converted.

All right, since I've pretty much given up hope on being able to get in on one of the print runs, I've got some questions to ask about printing it for myself.

1). Does this site violate the rule about Lulu?
2). If so, what are some printing companies that DON'T violate the rule?
3). What size should I be choosing to get my books printed in the same size as yours? Do I use the standard size of 6"x9" or will I need to order them in a custom size?

Thanks for your help.

Hard to say. It says its a print on demand which is what your looking for, as long as the book doesn't end up on a store where you can buy, you should be fine.

Good to hear. What about the size? Do I choose 6"x9" or something different?

So, I wanna be sure what all I'm allowed to do before proceeding with anything. When you say we're prohibited from using "publishers", basically the point is that we can't use anything that will distribute the book, or put it up for sale, right? So, anything that will give us a single printing, which will be delivered into our hands, and without the printer retaining any rights to anything is okay? I'm looking to get two copies, one for myself and one for a friend, and as I say, I just want to be perfectly clear on what we're allowed to use these for.

Also, is there anything, like a release form or something, which I can show to a printer saying I'm allowed to submit the book to them for printing?

you pretty much have it nailed down, There isn't really any slip to give as the story itself is in the public domain, The reason for this kind of printing is to keep it legal with both Hasbro and Bethesda. The printers are allowed to take payment for the labor but not for the IP hence why we have to avoid distributors which make royalties. It slims down who you can use but there is enough people out there that are only involved with printing.

There's a PDF and an ePub format version, will those work for you?
