I see my latest issue is labelled September/October. Does this mean that CV is now bi-monthly, or is the next issue to be November in four weeks time in an attempt to catch up with other magazines practice?

This is something that has constantly irritated me. Nearly all magazines put on the cover a 'month of issue' date that is two, or sometimes THREE months in the future!
Is it just so they can CON the unsuspecting public into buying old issues as if they are up to date issues? Are they trying to clear over produced print runs from their warehouses?
If so, that stinks. Surely advertising a three month old magazine as 'this month's' has got to be against some sort of trade description act.
Please CV, don't go down this road! I didn't mind too much receiving my 'September issue' at the end of last week (which was just a few days past MID-August). But I don't want to receive my 'November' issue in mid-September!

If there's an official* reason, then can anyone explain WHY?

I've always like the fact that CV didn't do what all the mainstream computer mags do.

Unfortunately, the decision to do otherwise was not mine, and was applied to all Highbury-WV titles.

There is nothing I can do about it.

Hello,

CV Mag, Star date August 2002, Opening scream, so this is what

"and even suffering ourselves"

was all about?

How reassuring to have Bob disagree in open forum with his financial masters.Whether we like it or not we are in a commercial environment- that is why the "Opening Scream" is so valuable. I do agree more articles on technique would add to the general interest of the magazine.

The situation gets worse on occasion for subscribers who always get their copies before the hoi-poloi. (I can't find a tongue in cheek smiley so you'll just have to imagine one).
I contacted an advertiser on the basis of an ad in a magazine (not CV) and the sales people didn't know what I was talking about coz they don't get info on the latest offers until the mag hits the news stand.
