Good to hear and thanks for supporting!




UPDATE

I finally got my shipment in South Korea. I would give our print job and work overall a 4/5. It's good for a first run but it's not what I had imagined. Seeing it physically in paper after working on it so long in a desktop environment was like porn in HD-- A lot uglier up close. Of course, I'm speaking as a perfectionist and I'm way too close to the issue as the actual designer, but I have many ideas on how to do things differently for issue #2. So in short, look forward to a much more dazzling second issue from Bitcoin Magazine. Thanks everyone for supporting us!



Sure, the printing quality could be better. I would probably give it a 3.75-4.25/5 based on technical stuff. Sure, it could be better.

But the bottom line is you actually shipped something and that is where it all starts. Too many people sit around thinking about doing something, tinkering and tweaking something hoping to get it just right when what they should do is just ship. I just got off the phone with Charlie Shrem and had given him some of my thoughts on the magazine as he asked what I thought. I think it is great and hope you guys make some good money on it.

You guys shipped and a shipped magazine beats, any day, a perfectly designed and printed magazine that doesn't ship.

I ordered mine 4 days ago and it still hasn't arrived. I demand that MNW and all associated individuals be marked as SCAMMERS! Waiting 4 days is 1 day too many and I will not tolerate this blatant crime to continue. Ban them at once!

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I like evoorhees's desk better. I wonder if he ever got his maid to wipe off that one spot pointed out by another user.

You can't be serious! How can they be possibly banned when they don't even know who them are?

For what it's worth, I'm currently investigating the link between they and them. So far I've learned that they are linked. but by an eleven-letter degree of separation. I thought I closed the gap when I reverted to the Greek alphabet and eliminated pi, but all that did was make me come full circle, and now I'm back at square one.

Adam Harding in Canada just got his. Yours is probably coming today or tomorrow then.

EDIT: Found out that I was wrong. He got a different shipment. Looks like Canada -really- hates the USPS.

When can people who only ordered a single order of the May issue be able to order a single order of the June issue?

I assume the website will be updated in a couple weeks (after the May issue is not being popularly ordered anymore)?

On that note, it'd be awesome if the ability to post-order an earlier issue was somehow kept, assuming stock of that issue is still available.

Yes! Right now orders keep flooding in for the first issue ("Oh shit! It's not a scam??") so as you understood, it doesn't make much sense to switch to second issue sales just yet.

I did learn from my mistakes thought of hearing people lying about me, calling me a scammer, and basically having no faith at all just because I accepted money beforehand so anyone who wants the second issue will have to wait until we go to print. Evil isn't it? What will all those bored detractors have to bitch about then? LOL

"The colors are...ONLY 4 OF THEM!! AND MATTHEW IS UGLY!"

Guilty as charged.

It will be kept up for as long as we have stock of the first issue (I'm already running out in Korea, Adam is running out in Canada and Daniel is running out in New York. We'll see how many UK and Romania have left in a few weeks.)

Not sure if mine was sent out or not. I didn't preorder, but felt like ordering a subscription.

I ordered mine May 24th. Should I give it another week or so, or contact support?

(If it hasn't been sent out yet, i'll need to change my shipping address anyways)

I pre-ordered the first issue over a month ago. If I put in another order right now, would I be getting another copy of the First issue, or will an order placed today start with the second issue?

Yeah, it is tough getting the initial start-up capital on a risky venture. If Mom is not going to loan you money then I suppose potential customers are one route. It is not unusual to fund it via potential customers. Just look at the Terrafugia and they ask for about $100,000 from their potential customers.

So I would not let the people calling you a liar, scammer, etc. get you down. Try to set the proper expectations and give frequent communications and updates and potential customers are usually pretty forgiving. Sure, I sent bitcoins a long time ago and was wondering when my magazine would show up and even thought I might have gotten scammed but such is the risk. I suppose I give most people the benefit of the doubt. After all, you can probably make bank with a regular BitCoin magazine and subscriber base. We are all big kids.

My understanding is that an order through the website right now would start with the first magazine (plus any additional months depending on what you order).

As Matthew mentioned above, they'll add a button to order the second issue once it is in print, so all orders right now are still for initial subscriptions starting with the May 2012 initial issue.

*Disclaimer - I'm not an official voice of the magazine; just an enthusiast.  Please reach out to Bitcoin Magazine directly for a more clear/correct answer.

Happy reading!
