Since subscriptions seem to be the life blood of publishing it would seem to be the wrong way to go if others do as I do.

I agree with BobF. A whole issue devoted to Burning and Dodging doesn't leave much room in the futute for further influences on that subject. Perhaps a format quite similar to our present Forums format (and perhaps not offering quite so many topics), offering quarterly 'state-of-the-art' essays on the most 'talked' about issues of APUG - non digital issues - and then a very ambitious annual issue summerizing the years imput as "where we are today and where we seem to be going" in analog photography.

I hope I got this in the right forum this time.
