    yeah there you go chris ...

    when i was in your shoes, i just cancel the subscription ...

    and demanded a refund ... and every once in a while a thread like this comes up,
    and i say just that ( and sometimes a little bit more )
    recently i was called names at one of the other 2 places i "frequent" ...

    just a few weeks ago, i GAVE AWAY all of the magazines from my 3 year subscription
    for the price of the shipping

    all that said, its a nice magazine if you can get over all the "baggage"
    that goes along with supporting it ...

    John: note. 3 FEB. Still waiting on November. Still waiting to get past that baggage. Hell, still waiting on the baggage.
    Thank you.

    I really like Steve's magazine from time to time, but after having been a subscriber for a year I've never acquired the magazine that way since. It is nearly impossible to find on the rack at B&N, and even more rarely at Borders, but I still try. Even then it's usually long out of date (a summertime issue at Christmas). The guy means well I'm sure, but hasn't a clue to how to run a business.

    LOL...been a while since there has been a thread on this publication, see things have not changed any. Of course there were really only two publications it could have been (photo related anyhow). Both nice, but both with publishers that should let someone else represent them.

    oh well, still better than the barking dog...now that was a real 'dog'

    Every time I decide to subscribe to "that" magazine a thread like this comes up on one of the forums and I change my mind.

    Sadly, that sounds like my experience. I subscribed for a few years because I really wanted that mag, but the issues were sometimes late, and sometimes didn't arrive at all (and it was impossible to get a replacement issue). So now I never read the magazine.... there is always a way to find the information elsewhere.

    that is the opposite of my experience ..
    whenever a issue never came ( and sometimes they didn't ), i called or emailed
    and another was sent, and then of course the late one arrived
    chewed up by some postal machine ... it's not his fault the post office machines
    like a steady diet of camera-gear ..

    it was the "bad behavior"...

    and got me wondering why i was funding it

    I used to subscribe to Steve's magazine for a couple of years as well. The first year was frustrating, and the phone calls and emails were curt at best. I decided to forgive and forget and subscribe for another year, but my local B&N consistantly had the magazine on the shelves at least two to three weeks before the magazine found my mailbox. I thought the online part as a perk for doing the subscription might be worth it, but NOT! Now I just go the that store, pick up the mag, have a cup of coffee, read the articles and see if it has any redeeming value before I buy it. Thats just my personal point of VIEW though.
