    Oh, does that still exist?  They haven't updated their site in over 8 months, so I wasn't sure.  I wasn't aware they were preserving magazines.  Of course, it's kind of hard to discern what they're preserving, since they don't seem to be making it publicly available.  Or I guess they could simply be amassing a large private collection of physical memorabilia, leaving the digital preservation and public distribution to us (and others like us)?  Again, it isn't clear based on the information on their site.

     

    They are active on Twitter almost daily. They spent the month of may or June at Game Informer digitizing a bunch of press release material they had stored away. 

    They preserve physical magazines. I just sent them three issues they were missing last month. As far as I know they only scan pages that contain info on games and hardware to get the full story on a game. They leave full preservation to us and direct people to our site who are looking for scans. 


  2. No one is going to change their names to Trots Johnson or Squirts McTurdle. The name change was a serious proposition because I do want to consolidate my usernames across multiple platforms. I was also hoping for a Ferkner landslide.

    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? 

    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.

    All I hope is that any new names I'm going to get stuck looking at on a daily basis display a modicum of maturity.

    That's asking a lot from me 😆

    Wow.  When did you make those usernames?  When you were 13?😂

    Ferkner is the only one that doesn't seem to mean anything (so far as I'm aware), so I'd go with that if you've got to pick one, I guess.

    That's the one I am leaning towards. Ironically, that is the only one that was thought up when in my teens. And it doesn't have any story behind it.

    Richard Cheese is the one I use on YouTube because who the hell wants to use their real name on there with all the deranged idiots on there? I settled on Richard Cheese over Mr. Sister Fister 😅

    Liquid Manure Brian stems from the local sports radio station I listened to religiously for a decade. They spoke of an old listener who used Liquid Manure Barb as her name when emailing in, and I liked how it sounded so I adopted it. It's the name I use on Twitter and Patreon to communicate with two of the former hosts who now have a podcast together.

    Since I communicate on YouTube, Twitter and Patreon about Retromags from time to time, I'd like to have a name that is similar across various sites.


  6. I'm tired of this username and want to have the same username across various sites. So I'm looking at using one of the names in the poll. Take this amazing opportunity to vote, and maybe I'll pick the winner :D

  7. His showed up as being posted the day before. I didn't realize it was only approved later last night. If the posting time reflected the approval time I would have skipped yesterday. 

    Phillyman should be looking into why VG needs approval for certain categories. We both looked yesterday and couldn't find anything that would cause that.
