Letter from the Chief Editor
Seasons greetings to everyone,
Hard to believe that a year has past since I started this project!
First off, I am pleased to announce that HappyHistorian has been promoted to Editor. He has already been quite helpful taking the work load off my shoulders so that I can focus my attentions on other aspects of the Editorial Board. I am enjoying working with him as we are ironing out routine details and coming up with new ideas.
This is all in an attempt to continue to raise the level of both the CHF Newsletter and the Han Lin Journal. To this end, we also happily have added MattW as a Columnist to our Editorial staff. Matt made his debut in the Nov HLJ with the first in a series looking at Mao’s impact on China. To add to his duties here on the EB, he has also accepted to be a mod for the PRC & ROC history forum. His overall enthusiasm and willingness to put in as much as he is getting out of the CHF has been beneficial to all the team as well as the CHF. You can read MattW's bio in the featured members of the Emperors Court, as well as a short bio written by Jullian_bei, and one by Urofpersia.
In this issue of the CHF Newsletter the first change you will see is that MattW has renovated the old Featured Topics List with a twist. We would like to encourage anyone who has a favorite topic, to let us know by dropping off a post at the
Mail box for Letters to the Editor
Within Matt's column we also have a new feature called the Fickle Finger of Fate in which our editorial staff will nominate members who stand out for their posts over the past two months and we will feature one or more. Unlike the regular featured Members whom we ask to write a bio about themselves, these people will be recognized for any number of outstanding reasons, (all positive of course) and Matt will write a short comment on why this person or persons were chosen.
We have another entertaining TV show review from DaMo. Matt has reviewed one of his favorite books, and last but not least, we have the final installment of the Yellow Scarf Comics by Jdalton.
In the February CHF Newsletter, we will be beginning a new cartoon series written and drawn by Snafu… and who knows who the fickle finger will point to. I think if all goes as planned we should have a couple of other surprises too.
But enough of that, I want to thank my great editorial team and the members of the Forum staff who give their time to help make sure the newsletter is enjoyable, and that it gets out on time with as few errors as possible.
The staff and I want to extend our best wishes all the members of the CHF.
Hoping all members enjoy their holidays with family and friends, and a prosperous new year 2009, the year of the OX.
