Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

I've got a personalized postcard informing me that my subscription is about to end. That is like a joke really. Before that there was a sealed mail with roughly the same information. I bet both of those took a couple of weeks to arrive and yet here I am still waiting for 188 and 191 to materialize....

Re: Subs Department Epic Failure

Let me be positive here for once: I got mail back from subs. After a follow-up mail they finally got that my two subs weren't linked, and they fixed it. I now see all on the same account. So I renew RG. And I'm on a "Europe" delivery, not a rest of world as I thought. Second, when using the link in...

Re: Subscription help

What good is a subscription if the issues do not arrive? I've said before that I'll gladly pay MORE for my subscription if a reliable and fast shipping service is being used. Amen to that :!: Based on the fact that my Edge subscription always is arriving significantly faster and even more so in the...

Re: Tracking lateness

Please be aware that it is no longer possible for anyone in subscriptions to speak directly on the forum. And nothing of value was lost. In the very early days when Mark was sometimes around, he actually gave off the impression to honestly trying to help. But since he left and subscribers weren't e...

Re: Tracking lateness

For the second time in a row my subscription copy of Edge has managed to arrive within about a week (well, 8 days this time, it was 6 last month). While the last two issues of Retro Gamer took over 5 weeks each and the current one is - of course - still nowhere to be seen. So whatever it is that Fut...

Re: Tracking lateness

So surprisingly my issue 190 decided to arrive after all on Monday, so it just took five and a half weeks and even more intererstinglich, clos to two weeks longer than some other parts of Germany - is this some sort of routing lottery nowadays? To prevent even more frustriation, because clearly issu...

Re: Tracking lateness

Update: Just received my replacement-copy of 189 which as shipped Feb, 11th today (Feb 20th). Apparantly this was shipped through Switzerland. Huh... 9 days is almost okay, I'd take that for sure. My replacement copy shipped on January 31st and arrived yesterday (February 22nd), with the labels sug...

Re: Tracking lateness

So issue 190 is as of now coming up to 3 weeks and of course still MIA. But since 189 took a whole 5 weeks and 1 day to reach me, well... You'd think that Future now using a German re-mailer route should speed things up for German subscribers at least, but clearly that's not the case so far and actu...

Re: Tracking lateness

Oh hey - today the new issue of Edge dropped in my mailbox, just 6 days after the store date. HOW is it possible that Edge ALWAYS gets delivered significantly faster and WHY can't Future manage to work that out for Retro Gamer as well? I recall when someone from Retro Gamer last showed up in this th...

Re: Tracking lateness

I remain fascinated that Norway is always receiving subscription copies lightning-fast compared to the rest of Europe (and the world). For comparison, issue #189 might have taken longer there as usual with around two weeks instead of one, but for Germany it took five weeks instead of the previously ...

Re: Tracking lateness

Re-sends tend to come directly from the UK and have arrived as fast as 4 days for me (Germany), while subscription copies clearly are routed through (in case of mainland Europe) Hungary, for whatever reason (most likely cheapest postabe/labour costs, of course). So basically they're send across half...

Re: Tracking lateness

So has this lateness problem been fixed for all at this point, or did most just give up on getting proper delivery service? The reason I ask, is that this thread doesn't appear to active as of late, but I'll post my latest arrival info anyway, especially since I'm here anyways. LOL My latest issue ...

I got number 184 yesterday (2018-08-24).
Could you let us know about what country we're talking? Without a location that information is of limited use, I'm sure you understand.

Re: Subscriber Covers

I'm also not a fan of the subscription covers. Usually, the chosen image isn't exactly attractive and I find it really annoying that the issue number has been dropped from the front. While it has always been unneccessarily small next to the barcode, now all that's left is the indication on the spine...

Re: Tracking lateness

So finally issue #183 has arrived at my place - again routed through Hungary and actually pretty fast compared to before, yet I still wonder why it took alsot a week longer than for the northern half of Germany. So for issues released in 2018 so far, this is how long it took to reach Germany (the so...
