Hi meppi, I was just getting nostalgic over N64 magazine and I stumbled on your website, I collected this magazine from issue 23 and I loved it right up until the end of the gamecube days but I still buy the odd issue of NGamer (the current version) even now, although the last member of the N64 team has just left (hence my nostalgia trip).
Anyway, what I think your doing is great (oh, and by the way I don't know if you know but I saw a reply from early art editor Wil Overton on your forums earlier - or at least I think it was as he has posted similar things elsewhere. and I am really looking forward to seeing the magazines that came out just before I got my N64.
Glad you are enjoying the magazines so much.
In the end that's what it all comes down to, preserving these magazines for people to enjoy them for many, many years to come.
Without the problem of having to scour ebay or the likes for issues which more often than not are in bad shape and sell for way too much money.
The only problem we face is time.
Time to scan and especially edit the magazines since each of us has a full-time job as well.
This means that it's hard to pick which magazine to work on since we're always leaving dozens of others laying by the side no matter what choice we make.
I'd love to have the full sets of all these wonderful magazines online right now, but for that to happen we'd have to drastically scale back the quality of each scan.
Which is something we just wouldn't feel right about as this is more than just a scan project for us. We do our best to make it a restoration and preservation project that would make the content creators and owners proud.
In that regard, I'm very happy to see we've been doing just that over the past 2 year.
Oh and yes, that's indeed Wil Overton who posted previously in those threads.

Glad I could help.
