As the title. Publication date of a slimmed down mag was pushed back 2 weeks due to circumstances. Last issue(displayed as the current issue on the site) stated August would be published at the later date of 24/7. As a subscriber in the past it would arrive around a week early of the publication date. So, effectively subscribers have had the date pushed back 3 weeks.

In the current situation people are reasonable tolerant and understanding if given an explanation, in good time, as to the reason for events. A brief explanation on the forum would have been appreciated.

The link at the top of this page still says 13 issues per year, I wonder if that will still happen.

kc, IIRC along with the push back of publication and a slimmer mag(reduced pagination) the 13 issues was also dropped back to 12.

But the advert for subscriptions ( top of this page ) still says 13 per year!

kc, maybe just not updated. I start to get nervous about things. The August issue that was to be published on the 24/7 is the last issue of my current subscription. The reason for my nervousness, I've fallen foul several times in the past when model publications have ceased soon after I've subscribed.

Post has been and gone - no mag. A point I've noticed concerning 'official' presence on the forum is that there is none. There wasn't even a moderator earlier on.

As the fb posting above appeared this morning I should imagine it will arrive early next week. Digital edition is up and running.

Yep. The August issue will arrive with UK subscribers this coming week. Overseas delivery with the usual lag time.
I’m told that 13 issues will be just that, but whether that means an added special issue over the 12 month period (as has been the case for many years now) or 13 issues to cover a 1-year and 1-month period is yet to be decided.

Here in Hungary I'm still waiting for the July issue to be delivered. Or was that never issued in print??

Print issues have never stopped Stephen, it was just a 2-month gap in overseas deliveries. The July issue was sent to overseas subscribers though.

Just giving a bit of perspective here - I'm in South Africa and I'm still waiting for my May issue to come. If its not Covid, its our SA postal service. just always grateful when the mags finally arrive. Stay safe everyone.

According to another thread subscribers can download the free plans they missed together with the RCME articles which are already available online to print subscribers So if Greg and Stephen are missing these issues then they could download them instead. It's not clear whether any missing issues will ever be sent, so best to download and save them anyway.

I've not received anything since the April issue. Very frustrating.

I was beginning to wonder where my copy was, my subscription according to the website expired last month but as I pay quarterly I see it is now October so my guess is I am ok their. However I did discover I can read the current mag online through the subscriber pages so I have had a good browse all ready, just would rather have copy in my hands to flick through and the print is bigger!

July issue stated: RCM&E, August 2020 issue on sale 24th July. I've not received my copy either or anything to say why the delay. Come on Kevin, give us a few answers. I'm moving more to cancelling my subscription than I am to renewing.

This could be a first - only a few more days and a magazine might arrive in the month that is named on the cover...
