Seaplane Magazine To Offer Much Larger Fonts
Seaplane Magazine has announced changes to the font sizes used in its online print version, to keep readers engaged with the flailing news outlet. Managing Editor Jason Baker noted, that a rapidly aging audience, problems with short term memory as well as bad vision has been a big contributing factor towards taking this step. One of the beneficial side-effects of this move for the editorial team is the need for less actual content.
Currently, just planning the editorial schedule for one week requires approximately 52.9 man hours, time that could be better spent link farming on Facebook or buying Fake Likes & Followers on other Social Media. “Industry standards demand a change in focus, going with the flow is our goal” – Baker said.
On average, the reading of a news release requires sustained reading for up to three minutes. Much too long, scientists and Facebook studies confirm. Bigger letters and less text would shorten the required time on behalf of the reader significantly. But Baker (43) brings own ideas to the table. “A page fills just this much quicker, when you write in large font!” Baker explains. Many readers complain about the small print on the print website or simply report of mentally fading off, or even passing out during the consumption of the articles.
A project to make online news reading more comfortable for the audience failed in 2017. Noting that unlike with print magazines – it is very difficult to take the computer to the bathroom. The bathroom traditionally is the only room in the house where aviation print magazines are tolerated. Chris Buckner, who serves as the magazines investor and also manages Baker said: “There are always problems with cables, people could slip and fall or even get electrocuted while trying to read our articles. Liability is tremendous. Reader Safety must be our top priority!“. Buckner states that he has been concerned with Bakers mental health for a while now, as Baker spends every free minute trying to work less for more money.
After the magazine opened in 2016 Buckner and Baker spent more than six years developing the perfect reader desk. But, the FAA put a stop to it for having used non FAA certified materials, which are legally required to be in use while consuming any aviation related news. “Especially the rudder pedals we used to make watching online-print videos more engaging caused lots of trouble at the FAA” Buckner reports.
Chris Buckner who has been doing most of the work and has also financed Bakers lavish lifestyle, salary and extensive event travels, has slowly gone broke and now thinks that Seaplanemagazine.com may need to randomly show full page advertising, instead of the actual news articles. Buckner, who is a multi billionaire in real life – owns a fleet of cruise-ships, a few trucking companies, multiple restaurant chains and two rocket manufacturing companies, has been forced to sell some of his personal jets, to keep Seaplane Magazine open and Baker employed, Rich People Magazine had reported earlier.
