i think its great to offer free tools ect...... to get new subscribers to the mag but what about your already loyal subscribers don't forget us surely you could also offer these "freebies" to the members at "special" one of prices once in a while as a thankyou for there loyalty.
I think more members would want to keep there membership going if loyalty offers like this were made once in a while what do you think.
Also what about being able to upload video as well as pics.then if a member is having trouble with a certain problem and another member knows how to do it but difficult to explain then they could show how it's done rather than trying to explain.
this then could also be used to show other members video of special events ect... at there relevant clubs or even footage of model shows from around the country .
what are your thoughts on this ?
is it possible?
or am i asking to much here?

The question regarding givaways is a common one to which my point of view is that surely a subscription to the Model Boat magazine is enough in itself after all if the editor spent all of his budget on "free" giveaways just to keep the readership loyal then he would have nothing left for the editorial which, after all, is what the magazine is all about.I would rather the editor continues to do what he is currently very good at doing…providing model boaters with a decent and well prepared monthly publication and not waste his time trying to appeal to bargain hunters.
Quality and value for money are not about how little we have to spend.
If some readers are motivated by giveaways and really do have to own a basic, cheap and nasty tool set then they should have a look at ebay where they are sure to find what they are looking for among all of the other car boot sale dross.

i think you miss understand what i mean we all know that the price of tools more so the specialist tools don't come cheap.
i don't want freebies or cheap tak tools just may be once in a while is offer special discounts to members if they shop at certain web sites or shops after all we all like a good bargain.
and yes i do agree the editor is doing a great job with the mag i enjoy receiving my mag every month through the post after making sure the dog does'nt rip it to shreds like he does the rest of the post.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
