Re: Issue 66 Feedback thread

Well, even though I don't have an iPhone and rather dislike them, I see the need for its coverage. But I think that a. it's too much, b. no need to give so much space to old games that are, er, old and do not need even a screenshot and c. the newer games really get on my nerves (but this is a genera...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Well, not quite, because a. you ignored some of my arguments, or distorted them and answered in the way it was easy for you to do and b. even if a 'minuscule representation' of the mag don't like it, it surely doesn't seem like it set the world on fire from the POV of those who do like it (you reall...

Re: Declining quality? :(

So the only way to ask for a feature to be dropped is to threaten with sub cancellations? Wow :D Now I really can't understand how the feedback system works :roll:

Ah yes, apologies, it's got the overwhelming acceptance of a grand total of 24 forum users :D

Well, I think there are 12 (again: twelve) persons that have voted for the LAP column in the relevant thread, and yet it seems he considers it enough to keep it...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Probably :D

I know this has been brought up several times before, but I don't remember ever seeing any figures?

Re: Declining quality? :(

Havantgottaclue makes a good point, and it goes to prove that sometimes people get used to things they don't like. I always leafed through the eBay pages, and thought of them as wasted space as well, but had grown used to it - darn. And I didn't even notice them being gone! Again, though, I don't b...

Re: "Lets Play"- your thoughts...

In any case, you keep ignoring the fact that it's not only the fact that this is online content duplicated in the printed edition*, but also that it's of a really low quality! I really hate it when people put those little stars* next to things, but then there is no other little star with a star exp...

Re: "Lets Play"- your thoughts...

Not sure how much I like the "it's staying, so get used to it" attitude. So far I've seen much negative feedback for the feature, and even if the opposite were the case a more subtle response would be more welcome... In any case, you keep ignoring the fact that it's not only the fact that this is on...

Re: "Lets Play"- your thoughts...

I voted against it, now I wish I hadn't. I may not be that keen on seeing an increasing amount of content from the forums taking up space in the magazine but it's a lot more intereresting to read than several pages of approximate valuations on retro kit. So just because you think some other, altern...

Re: Declining quality? :(

What about as one-off specials outside of the monthly mag. You could "recycle" some material from old mags and come up with some a few fresh articles make them twice as big as the average copy of RG & charge a tenner - bish bash bosh. I'd certainly buy the Spectrum, Commodore & Megadrive ones! I kn...

Re: Declining quality? :(

It's a great idea in concept, but I'd never allow it to happen. Live Publishing used to run themes on systems and there would always be huge spikes in the sales. Devote an entire issue to a specific machine and you immediately alienate anyone who never had it. That's why I made the decision to focu...

Re: Declining quality? :(

I think I would wee myself if I had to go to war too.... but as far as Gryzors remarks go - I didnt think they were of the 'not much in it for me this month' type - I think he was pointing out about the general format changes mostly (more forum/mobile/'celebs') and in that I would agree - dont thin...

Hm, you think? Ok, I may give it a try. Is there a QL group or forum or whatever?

Thanks :)
