    Quoted from unigroove:

    I just checked and you were in the first batch. I know of more people in IL still waiting for their copies. Have no clue why some states are faster (or slower, depending on how you look at it) than others.
    The refund on overpaid postal costs is no rumor. I just haven't been invoiced yet, so I can't calculate what the actual postal costs per region are. I've been informed the postal company is invoicing once a month, so I just wait for the invoice, do the math and start refunding.
    For those who are interested in the magazine: the second batch will ship this Tuesday. Who orders now is still in that second batch.

    Cool, thanks. I signed on for the price posted, so the fact that you are willing to issue a refund is top notch. Can't wait to read it. Thanks for the confirm.

    Goonie, I'm in Maryland and mag-less too. Seems those in the surrounding areas have received them. Keeping my fingers crossed it shows up here tomorrow.

    #103 11 years ago

    Jonathan, I can't imagine you going through hundreds of orders to refund a little bit of the postage. That is crazy! I personally wouldn't be offended if you left it as "postage refunds on request", and then make sure issue 2 is charging appropriately based on what you've learned is the actual postage.

    I'd personally rather have you invest your time into issue 2. But I can only speak for myself.

    Best of luck with everything.

    Frolic: Thanks for your input. I didn't make the magazine to make a 'profit' on overpaid postal costs. I promised a refund in case of overpaid postal costs and my plan is to stick with that. Another alternative that was suggested was working with a discount coupon on a next purchase. If that were offered to me I would no be too pleased with such a construction. So that's why I didn't go in that direction, but other people may actually prefer that. If people would prefer such a construction over a refund, it can still be considered. The only upside I can think of is that PayPal doesn't get to charge the refunds, so the next issue will end up being 'cheaper'.

    #105 11 years ago

    I thought I was in the first batch. I ordered well over a month ago. No mag yet, maybe tomorrow.

    #106 11 years ago

    Strange delivery patterns! I have mine in Texas, yet Pinsiders who are over 1,000 miles east of me do not.

    #107 11 years ago

    So far I've read half the mag. It is FANTASTIC! Great job, J! Postage refund for me? Please keep it!...Get to work on #2!

    Love the magazine! How about allowing us to donate our refund to Pinside?

    Quoted from txstargazer3:

    Nice suggestion. Seems to me the easiest way is to send an email to those who are entitled to a refund and give them 3 options: refund / discount on next issue / donate to Pinside. I just wonder how many will actually respond to such an email.

    But let's not get ahead of things. First let's see what the actual shipping costs were and do the math.

    Received mine last week in Australia. I have to say it is mighty impressive and will take a lot to stay with the superb quality and content. Full marks to the publisher.

    Well worth buying IMO - I'm sure every pinhead will get something from it.

    #111 11 years ago

    As I'm about to ship the second batch (and if you hurry and order now, you can still be in that batch) I contacted the shipping company about some copies still not arriving. They'll look into it. I know of one occasion where the receiver went to his local postoffice to ask about it and it turned out to be there. Haven't got a clue why they didn't deliver it. In the mean time I can only hope the few remaining copies get delivered today / this week.

    #112 11 years ago

    Read a good chunk of it yesterday. I enjoyed Roger's thoughts about making money in pinball. I'd like to see more of that in the future if possible. I'm not an operator, but the more in the wild the better for everyone, and as someone who runs their own business I like to read about others' businesses.

    Yea, I got mine in the mail today! It was slightly damaged in the mail, but still readable. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    #114 11 years ago

    Got mine today.

    #115 11 years ago

    It hath arrived! All in good shape here. I must read now....

    #116 11 years ago

    Still waiting in NorCal.

    #117 11 years ago

    Sorry to read about the damage, but I'm glad they finally arrived

    #118 11 years ago

    got mine last week and its AWESOME. very well done, thank you for all your effort!

    #119 11 years ago

    #120 11 years ago

    Yeah, to ship overseas your gonna need a thicker piece of cardboard in there.

    Hey mate, just wondering how long it will take to get to Australia??

    From a post in this topic I understood Homepin got their copy last week. That was in batch 1 which shipped out August 28. So, I'd say 2-3 weeks.

    #124 11 years ago

    Ok nice, looking forward to it. How many issues you think will come out each year if things go well???

    #125 11 years ago
    Quoted from RGR:

    I'm hoping to do 2-3 a year. It obviously takes time. Not just on my side, but also from those who feature in the magazine.

    #126 11 years ago

    While copies from the first batch are still arriving, the second batch just shipped out Any orders coming in will go in batch 3 which will most likely ship in a few weeks.

    #127 11 years ago

    Not completely on topic, but still related: check out the new, smaller, 10-page flyers that came in this afternoon. With a little bit of luck coming to a pinball show near you soon

    Nice! Hey Jonathan, I'll have to send you copies of my mag!

    If issue 2 never finishes it's because I'm having nightmares all the time

    #130 11 years ago

    Hah! Another big interview planned for Issue #2?

    #131 11 years ago

    Get to the Old Timers first before Jack and Gary.

    #132 11 years ago

    I will be shipping a small extra batch of Pinball Magazines within an hour or 2. Those who have been thinking of ordering: if you hurry, you can still be in that batch. Overpaid postal costs will still be refunded (once the actual costs are known).

    The flyers and magazine were very well received at my recent anniversary party.

    Great job on the magazine !

    Just finished reading the last bit of issue #1. Excellent work my friend. I read every word in there...which is a-typical of me. I always skip around.

    I found the magazine to be well layed out, and I think you did a great job in the Q and A. Good questions, and good organization. Kept my interest - the answers didn't seem too long or boring. At least not to me.

    Now where the h$ll is issue #2! Just kidding.

    I picked one up at PPE. I think there are some left over so if you're in the Bay Area you can probably get one at PPM. I would call in advance to verify they still have some left.

    1 week later
    #136 11 years ago

    Since the postal costs have been brought up several times in this topic:
    As I finally have been invoiced for the postal costs I calculated any overpaid costs and have made a start with refunding these. Those who ordered a copy will receive an email later this week with more details regarding these refunds. The postal rates will also be adjusted in the Pinball Magazine webshop.

    #137 11 years ago

    Will we be able to donate our refund to Pinside?

    #138 11 years ago

    Your money, you can do whatever you want with it I'm sure.

    #139 11 years ago
    Quoted from txstargazer3:

    if you PM me the name under which you ordered I can see if your refund hasn't been processed yet.

    Cool....I just ordered mine last week.

    #141 11 years ago

    Ok...ok...what's IN and when can we expect issue #2 ??

    #142 11 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    Well, unless things really speed up, I wouldn't count on issue #2 being finished this year. But then again, who knows how Expo will turn out and things get shifted up a gear or two

    #143 11 years ago
    Quoted from unigroove:

    That's OK, I can just let the refund go through and I'll donate it after it arrives. It's simpler that way.

    #144 11 years ago

    For those who were held back due to the postal costs: these have been adjusted in the Pinball Magazine webshop to their actual rates As mentioned before: any overpaid postal costs will be refunded.

    While it seems copies from batch 2 and 3 are still on their way, I'm planning to ship out another batch tomorrow (tuesday 15th). Orders coming in today will still be in that batch.

    On a slightly related note: As I'm attending Pinball Expo (October 17th-21st), I plan to blog on a daily basis about the event on www.pinball-magazine.com. I don't think the reports will end up in Pinball Magazine, but it could be fun to read how I experience the whole thing

    Cheers!
