Question re: Newsletter

Postby Jim Wood » Thu Feb 19, 2015 7:29 am

Greetings, all.

I put this question to Dave Gentle, as it's subscription-related, but perhaps he's the wrong fellow to ask in this case. When I went in to renew my sub for 2015, I noted for the first time that a 'cyber' issue of the Newsletter is available at a much-reduced subscription rate than the mailed version in an overseas situation. My question is, what is the form of the e-Newsletter? Is it simply a .pdf of the mailed copy, or is it formatted differently? Is it in full colo(u)r, like the current issues, or text with attached illustrations? I wonder if someone else is cyber-subscribed and could supply a sample copy for consideration, or tell me whom I might ask directly for that. Maybe if health holds up and I'm the club for another 40 years, I might save half a tree!

Thanks,

Jim Wood

Jim, I am not sure if Jeremy has decided yet in wich form the Electronic Newsletter will be sent. This form came up last year during the Convention in Loughborough and I think no ENL has been sent yet, so you can't get a sample. The Newsletter that you received in January (or February) was dated "December 2014", so this was the last issue of the year in which the cyber membership was not yet an option.

It is not for the trees that there came this cyber membership, but for the rapidly raising costs of sending by paper mail. In any way, if you are going to print the received ENL it will not save any tree.

But if you want to get the latest information about the form of the ENL, send an e-mail to Jeremy, at the same kind of address as Vic.

Ha! I am very pleased to announce I have received Vol. 39 No. 3.

Unless I am very much mistaken this is some kind of record as I have not yet heard of anyone else having received it.

This edition contains some very good news indeed for us out in the boondocks...

Darn it! LOL - oh well I am very pleased to have received it within a week of you, that's still very good by my standards.

I am surprised, however, that there hasn't been any chatter about the new membership/newsletter arrangement.

Hi Gary

Well i have some chatter ! how do you swap over to electronic ? i have just got my newsletter today ,i would rather next get the newsletter via PDF and not get any more snail mail newsletters in this way i have mainly months of membership more than i could now sort of wasting it with a paper version of the newsletter ...

In other words who do i contact via email .....bit of luck might get another year out of the membership or more i have got 2 newsletters out of my renewal really would be great to swap over .

Harry, there is a slip of paper along with the newsletter that explains how it's done, but if you have some issues the person to contact is David Gentle - contact address is on the NBTV website.

Thanks Gary will do , some thing i would like to mention since the pdf idea has come about gone electronic is why do we have to be stuck if static images i always liked photo news at the end of the newsletter ,wouldn't that be nice to be able to see this as in video news now as a extra file ? not sure its easy to ad animations to a pdf ? perhaps easier to make a video news movie file and accompany the pdf . Just an idea

One thing i am surprised that newsletter is emailed if i were them it would be much easier to put one in the membership area of the handbook web site and make us download it neither here nor there for me but but that would be more logical.

The advantage of e-mail instead of a download area is, that it is less likely to find any illegal copies in the internet.

Isn't technology marvelous?...that is when it works! I just renewed my NBTVA membership ('cyber' version) via paypal.

So no more scanning, no more soggy copies...though the plastic wrapper has helped there, no more being re-directed via Upper Volta. And I can get it anywhere in the world I might be with an internet connection. The current printed version has been sitting at home for at least a week but I won't be able to read it until I return.

Videos would be a welcome addition but they require a lot more effort to produce than a still. Jeremy struggles to simply get text, diagrams and photos as it is.
