hello

You're a month ahead, Piet - it's 22nd June today!smile

Overseas subscribers, like me, haven't had the printed copy delivered for a while but David has said the deliveries will start again with the July issue. I'm expecting it to arrive any day now, hopefully.

We'll just have to be patient and wait for all the gears to mesh....smile p

Is this true?

"The British newspapers do not come to Sweden anymore.
Many British magazines have stopped publishing in paper form and have gone digital.
Can't say if RCM&E will only be available digitally in the future butit does not appear to be in paper form in the near future."

Untrue Tomas. At least as far as RCM&E is concerned.

While I am grateful to have access to the online edition during the past 2-3 months it will be good to get my hands on the paper version. Must be old fashioned but I find it more satisfying to curl up with a book or magazine than a laptop.

Does anyone know the reason why we in Sweden have not yet received the May (and June) issue of RCM&E?

Tomas, as I think this thread alludes to, those issues weren't posted owing to the potential for delay and/or non-delivery due to the Covid crisis. Subscriptions will be extended for 2 months accordingly.

It seems that I will not get the May and June issue of RCM&E but is it possible in some way to get the plan of Wunbesix from the June issue?

Mailservice between UK and NL is working as I did receive the letter asking me to renew my subscription.

I am hoping the missing issues will be shipped soon as reading in my phone, even though the app is better than using the website, is not as convenient as reading it on paper.

Therein lies the problem Joost. They aren't sending us the missing issues. That's up to us to get them. They are supposed to be compensating us by extending our subscription by 2 months. Not what I wanted but by the looks of things the distributors don't really care what the people want.

When I spoke to the publisher, they did promise that the missing issues would be sent when the current situation would be resolved. IOW, we would still get all the printed magazines.

Are you now saying you heard differently?

Perhaps I've miss read some comments on here. I may have also misinterpreted David Ashby's post just above but I guess we'll have to wait and see what shows up in the mail over the next few weeks.

Update for all, after spending an afternoon on hold, I managed to get the following info:

1) All issues will still be delivered later this year. (Anyone else calling, please ask the same question to get this confirmed)

2) The subscription number I can see on my account is for my PRINT subscription. For the digital subscription there is a different number. (With that one it now works to read the issues on my phone and tablet). Why it used to work with the PRINT subscription is something the lady on the phone could not answer.

The phone number is:

UK: 0344 243 9023 International: +44 1604 828 748

Opening times are shortened (9 AM - 5PM)

This is when I was told the issues were only "on hold" and I would still get them.

I was not informed of any change to this. If this has changed, I will, to put it mildly, not be amused.

You would think that paying a subscription would be regarded as a contract - you pay the sub and they have to supply or be in breach of that contract? Maybe there is something in the small print that allows one side to renage on the contract in some circumstances.

However for Joost and others there might be a solution. Many RCME readers read the magazine and then put it to one side and throw them away after few months or give them to friends. Maybe an advert or posting offering to swap your local RC magazine for the RCME you want would produce a reply that suits both with delivery when the situation allows. I suggest 2 of yours for one of theirs is the sort of thing to tempt as not many Englishmen speak or read foreign languages so they would be getting less of interest.

I was very lucky and a gentleman contacted me a few weeks back in regards to the missed copies. We currently have an agreement that whatever issues that I missed he'll send to me as long as I pay the postage. I'm happy to do that. Now we are just waiting to see what turns up in the mail.

Thanks again Kevin if you're still watching smiley yes

As a foreign subscriber (The Netherlands) I received my printed July copy in the mail today!
I hope this means that, as far as RCM&E is concerned, things are getting back to 'normal'

So what about the printed May and June issues, are we still going to get these by mail ?
