The core issue is you have a plan, it's not consensual and hasn't been freely discussed alongside possible alternatives

Yes there is a need for far better and more open discussion, so long threads. You've already done a good job of alienated two very active contributors to the board which I'm sure was not your intention.

There are other people on this board involved in book & magazine publishing as well as quite a number of graphic designers.

No attempt has been made so far to find out who else would be prepared to get involved either.
