Hi Michelle and all - I sent in an article on how including
accessibility in games made them better in a lot of ways for
non-handicapped gamers. I was told that it would be included in the
next issue, not the January one. Then the call for papers for February
was included in this issue and it was for something other than
accessibility.

Did others send something that did not get accepted? The entire issue was supposed to be about game accessibility and only Barrie turned in an article -- at least that was what I had heard.
