Exclamation Subiesport TV

Okay, so everyone who knew of Subiesport Magazine loved having a magazine for our cars just like the European brands do.
But they lacked the support to continue and a lot of people including myself lost out on subscriptions.

Well the subscription was not expensive and we can all learn to forgive and forget to help create another Subaru specific media.

It would take less than 1300 people to pledge just $25 to get this show going. I do not know how many folks come on this forum, but I am certain it is many more than needed and most can afford $25. Especially when so many people pay more for ridiculous car accessories like stickers

So help yourself out by getting this created for all the Subie fans!

Pledge here:

Thank you,
Dawson J.

Blah subiesport magazine was one of my favorite till they started having issues keeping their subscription going.

I Picked up a subscription in 06 and renewed every year and made a stupid judgment call when I renewed for another two years at a subiefest after asking them in person if they were going to continue printing the magazine because they were having issues supplying the magazine to their loyal subscribers.

I think I received one 6 page magazine with a stupid DVD in it after the renewal and then never received another issue or letter from them saying they were no longer going to be in business.

I pretty much think the combo of the Internet and bad economy has killed allot of the magazines now days which really is sad because I really use to look forward and enjoy my car and martial art magazines that I subscribed to.

So in my opinion I already donated my cash to them and will honestly say I will never do so again because of how they robbed all the people at the subiefest that purchased the subscriptions only to be left in disappointment.

I think you just said the key word in this post.

IGNORED!!!!

I would have considered subscribing to it or an online subscription if they didn't feed me and every one else the BS that had me resubscribe at the subiefest for an additional 2 years (the two years was my choice there wasn't a discount between the one and two year subscription if I remember correctly).

All they had to do was send a simple cancelation letter apologizing for no longer being able to supply the magazine because I have to say it was the months of driving to my PO Box in hopes of seeing a subiesport magazine only to find junk mail and bills that really made me loose respect and trust for subiesport.

IGNORING customers is awful customer service.

Yeah but you did get a subscription continued to Grassroots motorsports which is a great magazine, but not as flashy. I was fine with it.

Never received a subscription or letter saying that it was going to grassroots I just found out that rite now.

Like I said the IGNORED thing is all I received and did not appreciate.

Well I didn't make this thread to hear about those who don't want to support this.
SO, feel free to be more positive and encouraging.
I'm sure most of you spend $25 on things far less entertaining than what this will be.

The point is a lot of people lost money on that name already. You can't blame people for suspecting a scam. They would be doing people a disservice by not pointing out what's happened in the past.

That being said, more power to you, if you can get it going. I'd watch.

So why did you make this thread? What is your interest in Subisport? This is your 1st posting since 6/30 and you only have a total of 60+ post total here. Seems you don't have too much interest in NASIOC in general. I find that more than a little curious.

Being quiet in a forum has little to do with what I have interest in.
All the negativity on the board keeps more folks than I from posting frequently. POst count is a not a critical factor in displaying...well, any useful information. I could post my opinion on things and flame members questions, but that certainly will not elevate me in regards to being a Subaru, or a NASIOC fan.

I am a Subaru enthusiast, that is my interest in Subiesport. I also think most people on here will watch it, whether you bitch about their past or not.

Edit: Also, Looking back at your posts in this thread, it looks like all you are trying to accomplish is a high post count "MD04WRX". Try saying something useful.

Maybe you should look a little more. It took me over 8 years to get the 5,000 plus post I have. I'm active in my local forum with meets and install days. I do support NASIOC, I do not flame people for no reason, nor do I post whore. Since I'm a former Subiesport subscriber I have every right to voice my opinion.

Back on topic though. $25 is not much and well spent for this show.

Find a post with me crying about Subiesport. You won't, I just point out the facts. So if $25 is not much why aren't you a NASIOC Supporter? I think that's about what I pay every year. You will get more from NASIOC than you ever will from Subiesport.

Yep, coming in and asking for money and simultaneously complaining about the people you're asking money from is a good sales tactic...

When did I ask for money? I am not selling anything. Also, who did I complain about? I simply mentioned my observations.

This example is why I don't post on here. This "community" is frequently unnecessarily hostile.
