Article very short

I dont know that much about PP and I think it'd be great if people could write more with this article. As 80 issues is alot of stuff, there must be lots of techniques and themes that PP tried and used in the zine medium. Also the idea that PP started because of a perception that MRR was becoming elitist; If it is possible to somehow explain this point - was this because of things said in MRR? - I dont really follow MRR but Id like to understand the relation of PP to MRR as these are two of a few very widely distributed zines in the world. Also the reasons that Dan Sinker mentions for stopping PP - such as the collapse of the distributior and how this really damaged the zine - if there were just a few lines to document this as i think it is relevant to zinewiki and zines as it shows the issues facing zines which wish to be bigger and widely distributed. Just some thoughts! --Eugenepunk 16:50, 22 June 2007 (EDT)

I agree with EugenePunk

Right on! yeah. There needs to be more in this article. Also, HeartattaCk started as a spin-off from MRR in March, 1994. This could also be mentioned. Doesn't seem like a coinkydink.. also It's notable, obviously because this right around the time of Dookie & Smash and what the music industry deemed the "punk revival" - which in my estimation is not as much a revival (for America) - but result of the basically ever growing punk scene in a country which is basically 5 times larger than the UK.

The staff section of this entry about PP is historically limited to people who worked there the last two or three years of the magazine's existence. There are numerous editors and writers who actually built out this version of the magazine, that PP concluded with. Its a shame that there are no public editing privileges to help correct this deficit.
