Some comments from Feylan on the release (source):
This Pulse was the hardest to put together to date. We were working on it right up until I hit the publish button! Thanks to the hard work of all of our contributors Pulse continues to grow in scope and quality, but if there are any small glitches you see in this issue I apologise - the fault is entirely mine. This issue also has the widest range of contributors ever, with volunteers chipping in from every imaginable corner of the Star Citizen community. I want to thank everyone who helped to make Pulse #3 a reality, especially those quoted who (for space reasons only!) didn't make it to the contributors list. So thank you TigerHeart, Bulldog, Thirdstar, AD, ShockwaveLover, Ben and Chris.
Thank you so much to everyone who has read and enjoyed Pulse, our magazine only gets made because of you.
Pulse is running a competition this week! The Star Citizen Scene Competition; details are inside, so be sure to check it out for a chance to win some cool prizes. We've also included a button on the contributor page that will let you download Pulse in a high-definition (for the technical amongst you, full 300ppi) in PDF form, for reading on your PC or printing out. Pulse looks very nice on JooMag and MagCloud, but if you're looking for eye-melting pixel perfect pictures, be sure to download the PDF :-)
A very special thanks to @Pokinatchapunx, @Malleovic, @Huntyre, @Kalamari, @Womby, @Bluebird, @NueBlue, @Beer, @Kingfisher212, @Rokossovsky and @Macaper for contributing, without them there wouldn't have been an issue #3 at all. You guys rock!
Thank you also to everyone else who offered advice, help, and well wishes.
I also want to mention FLJK, PACT and Imperium. We had initially planned to include a really fantastic interview with all of them in this issue, but we didn't quite get it finished in time for the deadline. I am very sorry for that, as the lead editor on Pulse the responsibility lays solely with me. For everyone, please look forward to next weekend where we'll release the full interview and an updated Pulse #3 - it's a really great piece that you won't want to miss!
For anyone who reads Pulse, we'd love to hear your feedback! Let us know what you think here, or at email@example.com. We're also always looking for writers, researchers, artists, designers and editors, so if you're interested let us know!
