Hi,

I was curious where we can submit tricks now?

Thank you,

Richard, is it possible to submit with a pseudonym or anonymously? (As my username would imply.)

I would think not--it's important to the credit history going forward that a name be associated with an effect for general credit as well as future reference.

Would, then, a pseudonym suffice? Assuming it's a consistent pseudonym one uses.

I'm sure that would be OK. Karl Fulves has been known to use one or two.

I prefer not to publish tricks sent by someone under a pseudonym unless I knew the actual identity of the person. Then I might consider it, but without that bit of knowledge the answer is no.

In that case, nice to meet you, Richard!

All humor aside, I understand the hesitance.

If you want to contribute, just send me an email at moobooks@verizon.net and tell me who you are. Then it will be no problem. I will keep it confidential.

Ian Chandler sounds like a nice generic pseudonym.
