(voted never, but in reality it's about once every 2 years)

As a second question, which you may answer in the reactions, we'd like to ask you whether you would read a paper magazine which follows today's MSX news, be it with a delay of a few months of course. Not as an alternative to any daily updated MSX website, but purely to have something in which you can read back all the MSX news and articles on the couch during a rainy day, in the train or before going to sleep.If it's well-written (not just a copy-paste of a news archive), fun to read, contains pictures+photos, and some new information, yes.

You forgot to add the following option:

- in my past there were no MSX magazines at all, and I am jealous of those who had !

Well, polls can't be changed. Strictly speaking, if you don't have magazines and never had them, then there's no reason to vote in the first place.. Wink

Of course! For me a 100% MSX "solid" magazine nowadays, is always special. Smile

why don't we create a poll about the most hated and controversial MSX user from the community?

I still have a few, and I sometimes read 'em, but not very often.

as for the second question... only if it's "done well". Should be fun to (re)read, like the old mags.

Going a bit further on the idea, something like ..
-news over the past few months
-revisiting some old games (wether known or not-so known, the latter perhaps being more interesting)
-reviews of new games, demos and sofware/hardware in general
-fair reports
-game cheats section
-programming/coding sections
-an annual christmas story Wink

all this not just being lame-copy paste-work, but rather articles with some thought in them;
could be produced in a downloadable PDF, so people can print it if they want; that brings production costs down to just voluntary work.

I'm still looking for "collection bonds" (verzamelbanden) for my magazines... Does someone have some for me?
