I got the magazine, and I thought it was just a waste. Nothing in there was interesting to me. It was kind of a copy cat of ad city, which by the way I love that magazine. Not trying to talk bs about anyone just my OPINION.
Im so sorry

Probably the owners started this topic. LOL. and NO I don't work for the echo before you write your comeback. There are many other people in this town that don't like 247!!!!!!!

clearly! I mean it's the same size. Oops not quite. It's the same format. Sorry wrong again. There is no way it's a copy. Any idiot can see that the magazine is full of stories not ads. I liked it. Because it gave you something to read. Ad city doesn't do that. Sure there are lots of ads to read and local businesses like it but there's not stories. And my understanding is the owner never wanted there to be stories in AD city. It seems to me that some people have the notion that thinking outside the box has a patent on it. The other people just have agendas. Get over it. There's room for everyone.

I didnt like it. Even though one of my friends was featured (which was okay), I still didn't like it. I'm not going to support a copy cat publication.

Just because the publication isn't the same size doesn't mean it is not a knock off. Regarding format, it is the same format... With a few added stories here and there. You call this publication thinking outside the box...or copying inside the box. No agenda with me, I just don't like it so I wont look at it.

You're clearly being purposely obtuse. The ad city sport magazine is filled with stories -- all good news, and is shiny and glossy. They saw something being successful, have tried to copy it with a few minor changes, and then claim it's their own fantastic idea -- like they typically do.
So maybe you shouldn't call people idiots, and maybe you should get over the fact that some people don't think 24/7 walks on water.

Format
1.(Communication Arts / Printing, Lithography & Bookbinding) the general appearance of a publication, including type style, paper, binding, etc.
2.(Communication Arts / Printing, Lithography & Bookbinding) an approximate indication of the size of a publication as determined by the number of times the original sheet of paper is folded to make a leaf

Ad city is.... ADs and pictures for stupid child like people to understand. Look there is a picture of food, and now a picture of office help and now a big boobed girl holding more food. ADs is all it is. The other mag has actual stories not just ads. And as for sports city, well it's a small town who doesn't love to see their kid in an article. Sure the pictures are glossy and shiny but all that glitters isn't gold.

There clearly is no comparison, both are doing the job set out to do. As far as copy cat.... Well you could say the ad city crew took their "out of the box" idea from HORIZIONs. Food for thought.

Just cause it doesn't have a lot of ads doesn't make it bad. It's just something else to show Alice.

Obviously someone is butt hurt by advertising being taken away... the mag has very LITTLE, chill the hell out! Ad City has nothing but ads. Place an ad in there, it kinda gets lost in the crowd! There is nothing like A out there. This has feel good stories about real people in Alice, not just the kids (Sports City). We love our Coyotes but that is not the only thing that makes up our city. Why is everyone getting so pissed off about a magazine? If you are getting your panties in a bunch over this it is only because you think it will take away SOME of your advertising dollars. OMG, get over it already. No wonder we can't all get along, gotta b!tch about something or you can't be happy! Good job, Mrs. Morris, I think you did a great job, always gotta be haters!

WHAT? always gotta be haters? The only haters are the morris duo...Always starting anonymous topix about the echo, totally copying Adcity, starting anonymous topix about Adcity owner, the list goes on. But wait...how can we not recognize the positive anonymous posts by 247 praising their website, paper, and Adcity oops i mean A Magazine.

Why? Obviously to give you something to complain about, of course!
