  1. The plan is to scan and upload all of the issues that are listed in my first post from 2015. I'll post updates any time I finish a batch of them!
  2. Hey thanks for the reply! I completely understand that these scans wouldn't pass your quality standards here. I promise to whomever stumbles upon this post in the future, that I'll update this thread with links to my uploads to the internet archive so anyone looking for them can find them. I don't have an ETA on when I'll be able to get it done, but hopefully I'll get it done within a month or two. Thanks again everyone, I'm glad there is still some interest in getting these scans uploaded. Cheers!
  3. Yeah I definitely don't want to damage or de-bound my magazines. Here are some examples of one magazine I scanned and cropped just in case the quality is anywhere near what you might be ok with? I know the image size isn't too large but I can get a higher quality scan. i totally understand needing to maintain a certain standard of quality when preserving old magazines, and if any mod or admin would be willing to accept unbound scans of the issues that I still have that are still missing 5 years later, let me know and I'd be happy to submit them.
  4. Hey all, I just remembered my password on this account. Just wanted to gauge to see if there is still interest in getting these missing issues scanned and uploaded that I listed in the first post. I finally have a decent scanner now and I think I can knock out getting these missing issues scanned and cropped decently enough to upload on here. Thanks!
  5. Ah, I gotcha. I can always resize them. I still have the original sized uncompressed images, I guess I just compressed them too much. I don't have much experience with image editing, but I can see what I can do.
  6. Edit: I figured out how to upload it. Here you go! http://community.retromags.com/files/file/3520-nintendo-power-issue-147-august-2001/
  7. Ok so I finally got a scanner. I have Jul 2001 digitized (I used a camera a few months ago, and it looks fairly decent), and I actually scanned Aug 2001. Here are some examples of what the scan looks like: Am I good to upload Aug 2001 to these servers? I have no idea how to do that.
  8. Ok, cool. Maybe I can muster up a scanner somewhere. I also figured out how to make .cbr and .cbz files easily so that won't be an issue. Oh so it turns out that I have all 12 issues from 2000. And a few from 2001. Will these work?
  9. Ok so I digitized 1 issue (121 June 1999). This one was a trial run for me to see if I could actually successfully do it. I think it turned out pretty well. Only 1 or 2 somewhat blurry photos in the bunch. It took a bit of tooling to get the lighting correct. What do I need to do to upload it to the site directly? EDIT: Ok, I just realized that June 1999 was already on the site. My apologies. I still want to know how to get set up to upload to the site for the issues that you all are missing.
  10. Awesome! Question: do they have to be actual scans, or can I use a camera (I have a decent 16mp point and shoot) to make up the issues (I don't own a scanner and I don't want to damage my magazines)? Also, can they be PDFs, or do they have to be in the .cbz format? I'll do my best to digitize my magazines as soon as I can. I'll just bump this thread or I'll send you a PM once I get everything situated with all of those issues.
  11. Hi all, I just found a box of my old Nintendo Power magazines, and it turns out that I have all of the issues that are "missing" in your collection ranging from 2000 through September 2002. My question is, if I make my own PDFs of the missing magazines, is there a way that I can add it to here so it becomes available? Here's my proof: http://imgur.com/a/Jjojo Here are the issues that are "missing" here that I own and are planning on digitizing: Issue 128 (Jan 2000) Issue 129 (Feb 2000) Issue 130 (Mar 2000) Issue 136 (Sep 2000) Issue 137 (Oct 2000) Issue 138 (Nov 2000) Issue 139 (Dec 2000) Issue 140 (Jan 2001) Issue 142 (Mar 2001) Issue 143 (Apr 2001) Issue 144 (May 2001) Issue 145 (Jun 2001) Issue 146 (Jul 2001) Issue 147 (Aug 2001) Issue 148 (Sep 2001) Issue 151 (Dec 2001) Issue 152 (Jan 2002) Issue 153 (Feb 2002) Issue 154 (Mar 2002) Issue 155 (Apr 2002) Issue 156 (May 2002) Issue 157 (Jun 2002) Issue 158 (Jul 2002) Issue 159 (Aug 2002) Issue 160 (Sep 2002) Thanks again!
