I just got the JANUARY issue, awesome issue in alot of respects. But the thing of note as long as i have been a subscriber, there has been a constant never changing theme-- "I am late" this crashed, I crashed, it crashed" And I am full aware of the auto accident and believe me I understand. BUT at some point in time a professional operation puts a stop to it. I read that you had taken on more responsibility in some political realm ( which I admire), but time to stop with all the excuses, because after awhile it gets old.

I personally want to see you(Gregg) redo the scedule and not just send a january issue in march, just call it what it is and make the same amount of issues but change the months, catch up and then stay up. There are answers, and doing a contest issue that encompasses 2 year old events does not cut it. Sorry, not for me.

I think the community as a whole loves you Gregg, respects you and has given you slack to catch up, but its time to soul search. I feel there comes a time when a paid magazine should deliver on time. That time for me at least has come, and based off of subscription numbers that are printed it looks like others might just feel the same.

Yes I know this is a bash laden post, but all the sweet, nice sugar coated words have yet to yield a marked improvement, or at least one that can sustain itself langer than a month. thats how many issues i have recieved in a timeley fashion in over 4 years. I know this isnt(ModelCars) not on the same budget or level as say the competition, but I have always felt and still do it is better when i do get it( the mag).

Please consider real answers when you catch up or how you choose to catch up, not just gap fills and reprints, cause most will see it for what it is, a last straw.

Well said. I feel its not a good image to portray. I signed up for a subscription to try out the Magazine a while back, got the Contest issue which was dated a few months back and have heard or seen nothing since. I too understand there are problems come up, but Thats the kinda of stuff that will scare new subscribers off and run off current subscribers
