There always seems to be someone asking why I haven't uploaded a particular magazine issue (usually someone wanting Nintendo magazines) so I thought I might as well spell out exactly what I have to process on top on the 1200+ magazines in my personal collection in the basement.
Priority 1 – Physical magazine issues awaiting scanning (provided by donators to the site)
64 Magazine – 29
Computer Games – 124, 126, 138, 154
Mega – 21
Priority 2 – Raw scans which need editing
- N64 Magazine – one issue + Zelda Guide
- NMS (UK) – 1994 Game Guide
- Game On – one issue
- Game Players/Ultra Game Players – twenty one issues
- Liverpool Software Gazette – four issues
- Look & Learn – heaps of issues
- MegaTech – two issues
- PC Gamer (USA) – twelve issues
- Play (USA) – thirty six issues
- RISC Magazine – heaps of issues
- Sega Force – one issue
- Sega Pro – four issues
- The Games Machine – one issue
- Probably more sitting in directories on my PC/NAS
Thanks to the use of a document scanner it is a lot faster for me to scan a magazine in my collection than it is to edit every single page for a magazine submitted as raw scans so these are edited as and when I have a suitable block of time to process them and are done on a "what I feel like editing" basis. I don't do requests for editing raw scans, or any particular titles to be honest as I like to vary my releases however, IF you want a particular issue made available there's no harm in making a donation to the site and putting your preference in the PAYPAL page free-text field. Donations of a reasonable amount will encourage me to work on the donators preferred magazine issue, or issues, depending on the size of the donation.
I'm sure most people are happy seeing whatever is released but for those of you with esoteric desires the donation option is there to encourage me so to speak. Don't forget all donations are used for the betterment of the site so it's a win-win anyway.
