It's a crap shoot whether you get one or not. I did an extensive review of a product for them, they cut the review to two sentences. I got to keep the product, but got no magazine.

I and others have made contributions through this forum that have been published in the magazine, some have gotten a magazine, most have not.

That's the answer I was expecting I would get. I think I'll stay out this year. Don't like dealing with people that don't keep there word.

Re: Members

It's not nice to promise a free copy to contributors and then not to deliver it.

Re: Members

I was in last years for the first time. I don't recall that they ever promised me any issues. Even though I am a subscriber, I think they would have had to ask for my street address in order to send me another copy as I have not put a lot of personal information in my account here.

Re: Members

Keith, they did ask me for my address with the intention of sending me a copy. Which they never did even after I made several more requests. I had to finely buy a copy for myself.

Yeah, what is up with that? Why does using a post from this forum in their magazine require a pic of you?

The way I see it is, I'm a member in good standing, have been for over 10 years. I've done reviews for the magazine, and yet each and every time they want my pic.

I am pleased that they find my input worthy of print. I am pleased that they want to give me recognition for it. They do not need my image to do so. :rolleyes:
