Are the donations still going for this?

It's going until the goal is reached!

Is that when scanning will start/the first scan will be uploaded? (don't want to miss any of these)

No, those will start once I get through my stuff that I had already prepped.

If you are on twitter, just follow @retromags. An (automatic?) tweet goes out every time a new magazine is posted.

Or if you allow notifications, an email will be automatically sent out directly from here.

I know it's "how long is a piece of string" or "when it's ready" but - roughly - how far off will these scans be?

thanks

He's already been uploading CIVICMINDED's donated scans, but there are hundreds of them, and they're only being released (at most) one per day.  So depending upon the order in which they're released, a particular scan could be released today or a couple of years from now.

Thanks, you see I've already missed some!

You can sign up to receive new release notification emails so you won't miss anything.  For the past couple of months, there has been something released pretty much on a daily basis, so you may have missed quite a bit!

Nice to see EGM Issue 100 in there. Makes me feel a bit less bad after not donating my own copy after I said that i would. BTW does the donated EGM 100 have the poster in it?

Dunno, but until it gets scanned you can always download it (with posters) here:

I don't know either, but chances are good that it does. CIVICMINDED's magazines are all in great condition. So far everything I have debound for scanning has seemed to have all the inserts they originally came with.

So on this, I wanted to point out a quick note.

The feedburner link that I have set to show below each release, is done thru Google without my interaction. But it is really only meant for non members of Retromags.

 

Members of Retromags - They should be using the notification system to stay notified of new releases. Our notification system is very powerful and they can choose whether to be notified off of the posts in the New Release Forum section, or they can be notified off of the Download Manager section, and if they choose the Download Manager section, they can further choose whether they want to be notified of all Nintendo Powers, or All USA magazines. They can also choose whether these notifications just show up when they log into Retromags, or if these notifications send Emails as they happen, or wait until the end of the week to send a summary of all releases that week.

Non Members of Retromags - they can use the Feedburner email that fires out at 5PM Eastern USA if a release was put out the day prior.

Once again, I just wanted to extend a sincere thanks to all of you who have participated in the CIVICMINDED Donation Drive Contest!  This has provided a HUGE boost in helping me recover the freight shipping costs of my donation from a few months ago.  It's been a real pleasure helping the RetroMags community and I'm already working on a second round of donations as we speak.  Thank you all!
