Re: Issue 66 Feedback thread

We're getting a bit off-topic here, but since we're at it, where could I ask for QL help? I've got one in mint external condition; however, when I got it some keys needed multiple presses to work. Figured it was the keyboard belt, so I cut it a bit shorted, re-plugged it, and... no keys work :( To g...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Heya Khisanth matey :) Well, I think I have already replied to most of what you say (not blaming you for not going thoroughly through the entire thread!), but: -I know that there'll be articles I'll like and articles I won't like. That's not the issue, but rather the structure of the magazine and th...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Hello Darran, So nice to get a reply from you :) And, of course, no worries about the 'lateness' in your reply! Legos are Important Things. First of Gryzor, I think you should change your title to RG isn't very good at the moment because it's covering stuff I don't like, as that would be a more accu...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Thanks, mate, much appreciated. Of course this very forum is not the most ideal place to put this complaint forward (like going on the CPCWiki forum and declaring your hate for the CPC, only in a less extreme way), but I preferred to post here instead of posting a Letter to the Editor so that a disc...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Not at all - it's a feedback loop. The internet is the most powerful marketing tool ever conceived by mankind (short of beaming pictures onto the moon), and this is such a niche market we're in that all and any coverage is not only good but essential. Add to that a slice of the social/community pie...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Nothing of the sort. My point is that its good the RG team take the time to involve the forum in the mag and the Lets Play feature was great. Its not about being "on a shrine", completely wrong end of the stick. Yes its nice to see your name mentioned but even nicer that they care about the forum u...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Just took a look at the membership of this forum. 3260, of which only one out of four (about 800) have more than 20 posts. Only one out of eight has more than 100 posts. And how many of these are active? And how many of these really want to appear in the mag? And how many readers the mag has?

Re: Declining quality? :(

Agree with the master on this, its great having the forum and online community integrated into the mag- makes me feel like were valued by the RG team and it does give you a bit of a buzz when you see your name/comments in print! Like master I would welcome even more, its great that Darran and the t...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Well, I'll start from the last sentence of yours, "instead of skipping pages, take some time to read them." After having read a full 65 issues, I'd say that's not an issue, thankyouverymuch. Even the pages that I say I "skip" now, I got back and read and try to find something in them. Anyhow. The ho...

Re: Declining quality? :(

This is the one thing I completely disagree with you about - I think this really boosts both the magazine and the forum community, and would even welcome even more. These days everything is "interactive", but to get your name in a printed magazine - even if it's just a tiny mention in a little box-...

Probably, and I apologise for that. I did take a look around to see similar topics since I don't follow the forum closely, but nothing came up, so I just went ahead and vented my frustration...

Re: Declining quality? :(

Yeah, I know what you mean, it's been the same with me - it's like a long-term relationship, it's got its ups and downs. But it's the first time that I've seen specific reasons why my interest in the magazine is waning, and also those reasons becoming more and more obvious...

Declining quality? :(

Hello... After reading #65 I'm somewhat disappointed. I'm a reader since #3 (and have the whole series, woo-hoo!), and I used to read every issue of RG from cover to cover, now I find myself skipping more and more of it, just as I bought myself a subscription. What bothers me, in a nutshell: -Ninten...
