ARRSE in Print

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by BFG 9000, Oct 4, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Greetings peeps.

    As you may or may not know, there have been various discussions about getting some of our more gifted storytellers published (RTFQ, Auld Sapper & Convoy C0ck to name but a few).

    What I intend to do is to collate & publish an 'Arrse Compendium'.
    The finished article will be a properly bound paperback.

    Initial thoughts are that I'll start with Cutaways 'Mega Thread List' (reproduced at the bottom of this post).
    I intend to edit out the irrelevant crap - posts like "that was great :D :D :D " etc to just leave quality reading material.

    I'd like thoughts from ARRSErs as to :-

    a. Is it a good idea?
    b. Would you buy it?
    c. What Price point should I be aiming for?
    d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?
    e. Where should the profits go? (ARRSE/The Authors/Charity(which)/Me?)


    Also need volunteers to proofread & to create a preface/forward giving some general background on ARRSE & ARRSERS, & produce artwork.
    Obviously all the material is in the public domain & freely available, but if anyone wants NOT to have there writings published, then let me know.
    The 'Mega Thread List' is below - please feel free to abuse me if there's anything obvious that I've missed.

  2. RTFQ's pardon my erection thread surely?
     
  3. and bully's ultimate stupid thread in the sigs forum
     
  4. Gleaming idea ....swearing in deffo, and for under a tenner! profits to arrse ......oh and signed copies off the major contributors :lol:
     
  5. Great idea, would definetly buy one :D
     
  6. Cutaway

    Here's the latest version - although a few need culling.
    "Party tricks" started well but died, and I added Convoy's "My wife and her divvy fcuking tent" as soon as it came out, and it didn't take off as quickly as I had hoped. No reflection on the fine start he'd made but there are a number of bone posts including but not limited to this :

    I ask you, what's a bloke to do ? It's enough to make a grown drunk cry !

    NB. Some threads buggered about with bitch fights but crack on past them
     
  7. a. Is it a good idea?
    b. Would you buy it?
    c. What Price point should I be aiming for?
    d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?
    e. Where should the profits go? (ARRSE/The Authors/Charity(which)/Me?)


    a. Of course
    b. If I could get my grubby hands on it, yes
    c. £10-£12 (whats that in euro?)...would it be stocked in NAAFIs etc? How about a free ARRSE sticker with it to spread the word?
    d. In- f***ing etc interrupts the flow of a good story
    e. Charity- nice PR opportunity for ARRSE as well as a good cause. Something Forces related no doubt. Though the question is, would charidees be willing to associated with such a blatantly unPC place such as this?



    Also need volunteers to proofread & to create a preface/forward giving some general background on ARRSE & ARRSERS, & produce artwork.

    Proofreading is a must. What sort of a background are you thinking of, eg "POSTER X is a former lance corporal with the RLC, serving in Bosnia, BOAR and NI. He currently tests alcohol for a major alcoholic beverages company and lives with his dog on a houseboat" sort of thing or "POSTER X joined ARRSE in February 2003 and mainly contributes to the NAAFI forum, where he delights fellow members with his skiffing tales"...?
    Artwork eh? Would including photos be too expensive?

    PM me mate, I was a technical proof-reader until about 5 years ago.
    The job'll be a piece of p*ss.

    Have you got the printer and publisher lined up yet?

    Also, suggest SSAFA or RBL Poppy appeal for the charities. I know there's talk of amalgamating the two in a few years time.
     
  9. I suggest a small dictionary to accompany it, so the army phrases can be understood by the great unwashed. Some of the explainations of the phrases would add agreat deal of depth, humour and history to the book. REMF, WTF etc!

    suggested titles,

    Now thats' what I call an ARRSE!
    The stories my ARRSE could tell! (an unfortunate double meaning there!)
    Look at the ARRSE on that!
     
  10. I've got a publisher & a printer.
    The offers for proofreading are coming in thick & fast.

    I'm waiting for a response from the CO's about database access, at the moment, but my guess is it's going to be at least a month before I can get the first draft collated.

  11. BFG, excellent, I am suggesting that for the public to get the most out of the stories, a section of the book should be a "glossary of terms"/dictionary.

    l8r dude.

  12. a. Is it a good idea?
    b. Would you buy it?
    c. What Price point should I be aiming for?
    d. Swearing in or not (or masked)?
    e. Where should the profits go? (ARRSE/The Authors/Charity(which)/Me?)

    a. You bet your ARRSE it is!
    b. As presents for everyone I know!
    c. Not less than £10.
    d. I would suggest that the original text should be left as un-tampered with as possible. I think if you started tampering you might lose something of the humour. Certainly swearing should be left in the format that it appears on the site - the creativity and diversity of the way expletives are rendered beautifully complements the banality and perversity of many of the threads!
    e. Charity? Definitely. ABF/Poppy Appeal? Probably.
