Re: Magazine Quality - Latest issue

I think you will find that the majority including me are quite happy with the magazine's paper quality. I haven't noticed smears, papers sticking together or anything like that.Rarely, some articles can strain your eyes but that is not a paper quality issue but an art editor's bad choice of text be...

Re: gamesTM and GamesMaster to end

Re: How Far Behind in the Magazine Issues Are You?

Feedback is good of course... but let's let the editorial team get on with their jobs. 'Voting' can be in the form of surveys...and surely that is better than disgruntled cus...
