I don't have a whole lot of faith in these guys anymore... for about the past 2-3 issues (6 months?) it's repeatedly been, "oh it'll be out soon", "there was issues at the printers", "If it's late, it's because of the post office", etc...

Even the email updates have slowed/stopped... and now as you've noted, they aren't even responding to posts here lately.

It's one thing if they're running into money issues because of the economy, or some other legitimate issue, but at the very least be up front an honest... try to make it right with your paying customers; don't just feed them BS and then blow them off.

Good thing my subscription was extended as an xmas gift last December...

I haven't received any issues since Sept. 2008. I tried to login on their website using the password they sent me and I got redirected back to the login page.

Bahh... March! Well, I guess I'm at least glad it wasn't my imagination that it's been a loooooooong arse time since the last issue.

Here's hoping for an issue sometime soon.

Its great that there is a new born in the subiesport family and congrats is definatly in order but there is a comitment that should be honored to the paying customers. Its a once every two month publication, its going on the end of the third month and I havnt received what ive paid for. Not a good way to operate a business. If every business was late in their services and/or products provided due to the welcoming of a new born then there would be a lot of disgrunteled customers.

This is bogus...not to sound insincere but you can't leave paying subscribers with thumbs up their butts because a staff member had a new baby. Last I checked people have children all the time and business typically doesn't come to a grinding halt because of it. While I dig your magazine you cant neglect paying customers and provide vague answers as to why and when they can expect to receive what we paid for.

Maybe Subiesport is filling for bankruptcy.........or is in Mexico with our subscription money.These fools need to step up and make a statement.

Im preety sure that by this he means, the subiesport magazine is going to pursue a newer outlook on there magazine. A new "born" magazine, a different flow to things. I really dont think he's referring to a child here...

Either way, they should have had that mag in the works while still putting out the others and then incorperate into the mix.

I dont hate Subiesport, if anything it is a compliment to them because we like the mag so much.
But seriously they shouldnt leave us hanging.

Clearly they are going for quality over quantity seeing as no one has been seen a single issue for months. All that I know is that I have a 2 year 12 issue subscription. If they pull some BS and ship less than the 12 and go by the 2 year limit I will punch someone. Last I checked SubieSport was bi-monthly

EDIT: I just checked the website and apparently a new issue is coming early next month. It still is weak that for the past two issues it has been 3 months between each issue.
