Salient Announcement

Due to an error with our production company we have not received this weeks shipment of the weekly goodness, that is Salient.

It should be here tonightish, and hopefully distributed tomorrow. Because of this we will let issue 5 run through next week. This gives us more time to sit in the office, masturbate and smoke drugs, and play chess.

There are heaps of old issues up in the office if you want to grab them to use as household insulation, fuel for your fire, building forts, even reading them, if that strikes your fancy.

About the Author ()

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.

  1. Chris says:

    Salient – what does this mean in terms of the contract that exists between the editor and VUWSA, which is to produce a certain amount of issues per year?

  2. Brunswick says:

    Yay, a holiday!
    Could we make up the issue numbers by doing some sort of holiday special?

  3. …or we could take advantage of a golden opportunity to not blow our budget… killjoy perhaps, but… meh.
    Chris: the editor has control over form and content provided they come within the budget; obviously they should have the approval of the publications committee for any such changes.

  4. Renegotiate the contract.

  5. Chris says:

    Tristan – yes, but that’s not to say you could decide to do 4 500 page issues each year issued each half trimester. I am pretty sure in the contract between the VUWSA Pubs Ed (ie, you) and VUWSA, there is a clause saying how many issues that need to be produced. You should probably check?

    Bolshevik – ahy? not a smug question; just trying to be helpful. How is it my role?

  6. Chris – There’s no clause stating number of issues (we’ve already removed disorientation issue due to VUWSA budgeting constraints), but the contract does state the following:

    “The first issue of Salient is to be ready for distribution during enrolment, the second and subsequent issues to be distributed at the beginning of each week of lectures held by VUW.”

    This three-day week’s Salient was to be out on Wednesday (which is not ideal, but was the soonest possible date) but unforeseen circumstances mean it didn’t reach us until today, leaving us with the question: do we run a two-day issue then another one the next week, or do we treat easter week as not-a-whole-week and run the issue through the next week? I presume a three day week does actually constitute “a week of lectures”, and we would like to have had an issue each week, but as I say it was out of our hands and we’ve been forced to change our plans to make the best of the situation.

  7. Bookworm says:

    Hope it is out allready, so confusing, that’s what happens with an early Easter! eschews the whole Trimester too… Oh well at least a lot of Salient is online…

  8. Jackson Wood says:

    Damn the Catholic Church for setting Easter early this year.

  9. Chris says:

    Tristan – fair enough. I’m wrong about the contract then. Don’t know where I saw that…

  10. Nic says:

    Cool so what was the unforeseen circumstances

  11. The truck driver delivering the mags thought it would be a good idea to emulate the fast and the furious, resulting in him flipping his truck into a gorge, until it exploded whilst he leapt from its cockpit in glorious action hero fashion.


    The truck broke down. Your choice.

  12. Jackson Wood says:

    It also looks like the production company messed up a few issues and left a big giant blob of red ink on one page. In some of the magazines. Please bring any copies that you find, be-smutted with this filth, to the office so that we can send them back to the company and ask for the money back.

    The truck driver could have also been the government spokesperson that announced the lake Rotorua clean up plan.


    The truck broke down…. like, whatever.
