NZ Subscribers not subscribers?

Hello everyone,

I came home today and realised when I got my issue 89, it wasn't the subscribers cover. I was thinking, hey I've gotta wait until the same day as they get released in the shops here and I subscribe and only get the same as everyone else in the shops. What's the point of subscribing when you aren't treated as the same as Australian subscribers. That may be a tad pedantic but also in our User Profile, there is something called Subscriber ID, now I tried the code on the front of my plastic sticker with my name on it, I found this 5 digit number. It doesn't work! I honestly expected more than just saving $15 a year.

OKay, that blows.

I'm not in the office at the moment, but let me check this for you. I'll be bloody peeved if NZ Atomicans aren't getting the same deal as everyone else.

Thanks David, I love the content of Atomic, just if this kind of thing happens with subs in NZ, I'd rather spend the extra little bit and get it at the shops. At least it's not bent either.

Should I take this up with the guys in NZ (Gordan and Gotch, or whatever company that distributes them)? And about the SubscriberID, what does it do? Other than make you a "subscriber"

THat ID is simply there for reference reasons - a unique number that is yours no matter where you live and so on. Makes it easier to look stuff up and, in some cases, it can also prove you actually subscribe.

And we'll look into it from our end, man.

bump.

So will we, NZ subscribers, get sub-edition Atomic mags? Or will we being thrown the short end like all the non-subs?

Ah, thanks for the reminder.

Sadly, here's how things currently work with our subscriptions and distribution.

We print two runs of each issue, and subs issue goes to our local subs house, and the newstand issue goes to our distributor - who also, as I understand it, handles our NZ subsribers. Basically one batch of mags gets sent over to NZ and it's from this that both newstand and subs copies are drawn from.

This - as you can imagine - is less than ideal when it comes to getting the right copies to the right people. We're looking at a way to fix this as we speak. I wish I could be more specific when it comes to a solution to the problem.

We will solve this, but for now that's the best answer I have. The time frame is the only thing I am unsure of.

ETA: Actually, looks like this issue is in fact fixed! So keep an eye on that mailbox.

Yeah, it has been. Just to let you know - Don't bump threads that are quite old. Like further away than the first page, so just start a new thread asking.

Usually it arrives for me about a week after it says on the website they've got a new mag.
