Looks like I'll be subscribing from Issue 103 onwards then
Can we thank our new editor for all of the shonky new advertising that the site has then? I know that James said that those decisions had been taken out of his hands.
Many thanks to all of the hard working staff who's integrity built Bit-Tech into what it was.
DAMN! but what about Custom PC magazine, and my on-going subscription?
Is this because of Bulldozer?
I'm a mix of sad and happy. But mostly sad.
(Edited out for now, things will be said later.)
Spot the cost cutting exercise. Contractors are cheaper than staff and you only pay them when they write, no need to pay holidays or pensions etc.
Content on here has gone down over the last few years, I've been here for a long time and the community and website is nowhere near what it used to be.
Well I wish everyone leaving goodbye, and I wish everyone coming in good luck. I will be interested to see the new "generation" of bit-tech turns out, and I hope its good enough for me to stay on bit-tech and keep my CPC subscription.
Sad to see James go - I hope it was his choice, and he wasn't pushed. What are these new pastures, he moving to?
Good luck to the rest of the team, those staying and leaving, your contributions were appreciated; long may that continue (on a freelance basis).
I sincerely hope this will be a positive transition for both mag and site; and not just a penny-pinching exercise by Dennis.
I can only hope these changes will be for better, my only experience with the staff wasn't a good one. And yet I still continue to hold my lips about the situation as of yet.
If it improves the modding community, I remain here. If it doesn't, I'm leaving.
The next month will be interesting for me, that's for sure.
And if this means the death of the forums to certain extent, then my time here will have been shortlived.
I'll decide soon enough.
We shall see.
imho your best period was just before Dennis moved in...
How is that meant to be taken?
Just want to clarify.
+1 Please explain yourself RTT.
I'd like to post my honest feelings, but I suspect I'd be banned, and since I've been a member since 2003, I don't particularly wish that to happen.
Suffice it to say I am not in support of these moves, and we'll leave it at that.
It's a picture of Felix Dennis and has been posted before as a way of summing up the impression we get from Dennis generally as a company.
I don't think it means anything more than that.
Sad news indeed. Those of you leaving will be missed, those of you not leaving ...well, not so much.
I'll try to be cautiously optimistic about the change. Please don't disappoint us!
And if you do, well, at least there's still the forum...
I like your optimism I can give it a couple of issues, then cancel the sub if the mag changes make it worse because when picking and choosing them from the supermarket, the various vouchers will make it cheaper than the sub.
I thought it was quite funny, despite any concerns I have about the announced changes.
In the going on of these changes, everyone NEEDS to have their voice heard, and as long as it's not going to be a let down, modding forum more so as per the amount of complaints that have been left unanswered in my opinion. I'll stick around for the next month to see what the new era is like, then I'll decide my plan of action. So here's my final voice:
Goodbye Anthony, I hope you had fun giving me the bum's rush around.
I don't think this is as bad as people are making out.. I mean in the article James clearly says,
Can't be that bad then surely! Give him a chance!
Welcome aboard Simon!
James, so long and thanks for the fish!
Good luck to everyone. I really look forward to seeing how developments unfold...
