Has anyone here from Australia or New Zealand who have received subs issue 215? I received 214 six weeks ago, and today 216 has arrived, interested to know if anyone else was like this?

I've put in a request for replacement, but wouldn't be surprised if the issues showed up in the wrong order again like they did last year.

Not Aus / NZ, but here in the US I did get #215 out of order, after #216. #213 is still missing.

I got my 215 last week, and today 216 turned up (Im in newcastle). So its been a long and tortuous process, but Ive finally received everything below 216 now. As to new issues, hopefully they start filtering through a little better than the last few months worth.

Near like clockwork I have #218 now, 4 weeks since the previous (which I incidentally also finished today - the "In" pile of still to read stuff just seems to keep growing).

Read this:

Pathetic service. Covid-19 is no excuse, especially when companies like Amazon have delivered on time through out the crisis. Missing issues and late deliveries is not good enough. I even paid twice for issue 214 and still no delivery. As soon as my subscription ends I will never re-new my sub again. Pissed off Australian customer!

#218 ("Back To The 90s" subscriber cover) arrived today, April 22. The subscriber cover is very similar (but not identical) to the regular cover.

#219 was waiting for me as I came home today, still on a nicely regular 4 week schedule.

219 arrived to me in Australia today, 1 week after 217 arrived. It's the first time in a very long time that I've received an issue that's still a current issue.
No idea where 218 is however.

#219 arrived today, looks like the delivery schedule is what it was pre-COVID.

G’day I have been following this thread for a while and every time your issues have shown up mine have been in the next day or two (I am in Tassie) wonder why 217 then 219 showed in that order? Maybe 218 was sent by a different method?

I'm hoping that's the case. I assume they all get dumped into a distribution point in Australia and that's why we all see them around the same time. Perhaps 218 is the last of the ones that were sent via ship or whatever reason it went so slowly and perhaps 219 is the first to be sent via the "normal" means. 218 might still be on a boat somewhere :)

I guess time will tell!

Maybe I jinxed myself 219 hasn’t shown here yet! I am really looking forward to 218 for the 90’s special.
