  1. First, I am a new member and I have to say I am impressed with the passion of this site, and the efforts put towards archiving an important part of history. There is a great degree of professionalism put on display by the scanners and curators, and I know that no one gets paid to do this. Myself, I subscribed to Electronic Gaming Monthly from the Dreamcast launch (Sept 1999) on to about 2005. I stopped following shortly after I went to college and stopped following console gaming (more of a PC gamer now). My magazine collection was lost over the years (like 99% of people) otherwise I would think to contribute to this site. I remember reading the news when EGM was cancelled in early 2009; a great shame but it was inevitable. I wasn't aware it was re-launched by the magazine's founder, Steve Harris, and that it eventually tapered off in 2015. Reading articles and listening to podcasts, it almost makes me want to do a mini-documentary about the rise and fall of EGM. I purchased a few other video game magazines in the 90s but I only ever subscribed to EGM. Tips & Tricks was one of them. I'm surprised that those are so hard to track down. I distinctly remember reading SNES-era content and I haven't been able to find anything at all from that era. Which brings me to the topic title. I think we can all agree that Electronic Gaming Monthly is now defunct, according to RetroMags very own thread tracking the last few issues. The last publication was Special Issue #05 published in September 2015. I've done some research and I don't see any cite-able source from EGM saying that the magazine operations has been shut down. The Wikipedia article acts as though EGM is still in publication. This must be a deliberate act by the publisher, for it to not be officially cancelled and can come back at any time? Barring this, is it acceptable to move the scanning window to the 10-year timeline that RetroMags has for defunct magazines? That would put us through to the end of 2008, almost to the very end of the first run. I think the community would be in favor of catching up EGM, based on the topic where EGM is in the lead. Again, I appreciate the site and the efforts of the community. I've been out of the loop on gaming for a long time, and I don't often sign up for any site, so that should say something. I admire the archivist mentality that a lot of you folks have. I've lost so many magazines, games (probably purchased the PSX Final Fantasy's 3 times each), and all of my various Game Boys somehow, that I don't live up to this mentality at all.
