Re: IMPORTANT - COVID-19 update

The reason why the various tweets and posts were placed here and on social media is because not all subscribers' emails were on file, which probably explains why you've not heard anything. The idea is to fill out that form so you could receive PDFs while you waited for issues to turn up. I'm not su...

Re: Tracking lateness

So would the solution for the vast majority of non-UK subscribers be the option of choosing either low-cost standard delivery or single-issue price express delivery when they set up their subscriptions? I just can say I would welcome the choice and certainly take the "pay more, get it quick" option...

Re: Tracking lateness

To sum my most recent fun experiences: RG #208 - supposedly the first one that ought to be shipped to non-UK subscribers again, store date June 11th: - sub issue: didn't get a dispatch email, no link to digital, has yet to arrive (not expecting that to happen any time soon, to be honest) - single is...

Re: IMPORTANT - COVID-19 update

Remember that single copies of Retro Gamer are between 31% and 35% more expensive to send overseas than subscriber copies. When you take that into account it makes sense that subscription copies are given a lower priority by whichever delivery company has to get them from the UK to readers abroad. ...

Re: IMPORTANT - COVID-19 update

Have you received your digital pdfs of the issues? I know it's not the same but it still allows you to read the magazine. If you haven't your email address possibly isn't on record and it can be updated here I can't speak for him, but while I did get the email with the links to 206 and 207, there w...

Re: Tracking lateness

Did you ever get that issue of Edge? Just curious. I did - after it finally was dispatched, delivery actually went pretty fast. Which is another thing that really annoys me (and more fellow non-UK subscribers): Single issues bought on the website have pretty much always arrived for me within a week...

Re: Tracking lateness

That's really sad to hear. I've seen other people from the forum getting things sorted out for them on that Twitter page, I wouldn't have suggested it otherwise. I can only guess that they must have more control over UK subscriptions, but there's no excuse for them not replying to your tweets. :( W...

Re: Tracking lateness

Have you tried contacting Future's customer service at www.twitter.com/myfavemags? They should be able to get you links to the digital editions and give you an update on when your printed issues of 206 + 207 will be arriving. :) My experience with that Twitter account is complete silence, despite t...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

I'm pretty sure stored magazines still haven't been sent out yet I'm afraid Weblaus. I'm sure you are right. And to be perfectly honest, I'd be more surprised if they really will end up being sent out (and arriving) than otherwise. The only thing that seems to work flawlessly in Future's customer s...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

I'm an international subscriber, and I got the free digital version for this issue as well as the last two. For this issue, it was with an email saying that they were sending the mag out, not holding it, so slightly different. I didn't get an email saying my held magazines have been sent out yet ei...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 208 - Back to the 80s

So I guess things are indeed back to normal now - which seems to mean the digital issues are gone along with the "Your copy of Retro gamer will be with you soon" emails that contained the link for that. Oh well. Of course, I also never got the email stating that international subscribers will get th...

Re: Tracking lateness

Issue #207 arrived today, routed through France - obviously not the "we'll send it to you later, promise!" subs copy, but a single issue ordered last Thursday and shipped on Frida, I believe. Seems like for once being an international buyers has its advantages, as UK readers seem to wait two weeks o...

Re: Tracking lateness

Maybe those are actually sent directly from the UK while the magazines are shipped to who knows where and shipped to subscribers from there. I am aware of that and yes, the letter was sent from the UK (that's why I mentioned Royal Mail). And I get that subs are sent differently, but I'd still expec...

Re: Tracking lateness

I got an email on Thursday stating that issue 208 will be sent out normally to subscribers. No info when 206-7 will be sent though. I know two fellow German subscrivers who also got that email (and who had no idea 206 and 207 weren't sent out), while I did not so far - I wonder whiy it is apparentl...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 206

Two covers must be added expense both for time and money for what appears to be a option not wanted. Offering subscribers a selection of the two would again be costly and likely unworkable. Well, obviously two covers are produced each month ever sinc the subs cover was introducing, so that's not th...
