Yes, please.

The Vic-20 was my first computer I owned (not counting the VCS as a computer).

Yes please... love the Vic 20... it is one of those computers that brings out real nostalgic memories of the early days of computing... even though I never owned one.

Did have a friend with one, and remember playing Blue Meanies a lot, which I think came with it.

absolutely. Games like Chariot Race and Blitzkreig were some of my best early gaming experiences.

Yes, the Vic-20 gets very little coverage in the mag considering how popular it was.

Yes please!... a focus on some of the classic games like Myriad, Omega Race, Chariot Races, RIP etc .. but maybe some of the modern day resurgence software coming out for it?.....

....Pretty much for me, the Vic 20 got abandoned by developers around 1985 and they moved to the C64 etc. But in recent years a lot of developers have come to the Vic 20 for a challenge, and we've ended up seeing a lot of demos and games which push the machine further than it has been before (In comparison to the likes of the C64 which has had a constant stream of development in its lifetime).

Well, if there's some good ideas, I might come out of semi retirement to write something... just need an angle. But I'd love to put something else together on the Vic20 after the hardware profile ages ago...

I've never owned one, I've never played one & never had any interest in one, yet still I'd want to read an article/features about it.

The same can't be said about consoles I haven't owned, played or had any interest in that have been released in the last 10-15 years.

I have no idea why this is, there seems no logical reason for it but there you go.

If Vic-20 features get pitched to Stuart then they'll appear in the magazine. I can't recall anything recently off the top of my head though.
