@ andreas

Maybe Crackers should have Cracked Games only 30-65% or so, back then?
A 100% Crack is only for purist completists, right¿

And not all my Scans are 100% btw. Most Issues of '94 to '96 are "missing" a lot of Trash.
e.g. PD-Commercials. PD Mallander for instance, as they were Thiefs.
As I wrote before: If you have a fast Scanner, it's better to Scan all Pages,
as You save a lot of Time sorting and renaming the Files afterwards.

It's very Sad, if You put that much Effort in Scanning all This, and have to Deal with People like You!
Makes me a little Angry. But I can Cope with that, as I have other Problems.

My Conclusion:
Please don't Comment on this Thread, if you don't intend to Help Us.
We don't need a lot of Wiseguys talking, and not doing anything Constructive!

Thanks

Angry? About that?
It was even a bit tongue-in-cheek, to be exact...

Take a chill pill, you just get worked up too easily as usual.
BTW, your Capital Writing "Style" Is Really a Pain To Read.

So people who make scans know it's not for nothing, at least someone is interested.

I'd like the scans for all the articles mentionning the Bitmap Bros
If you disregard the slight "could you read all your magazines for me and scan the stuff I need for my research and maybe hilight the important paragraphs" inference, it's actually a constructive suggestion.

Not as "work for me please, scan this, I want this", but a page-number request based on the contents-page scan page-numbers.

Maybe put the non-scanned page numbers on the Pages webpage, colored red and linked to an automated request form, so you just click to request it and verify that you're human.

That means it's very easy, so to avoid clicky pandemonium you could disallow requests if cookies are turned off, or if the cookie from your last request hasn't expired. Interval should approximately match what the scanners can keep up with, so maybe you'd need 3-day cookies or similar.


If it works, the scanners will waste less time on unwanted pages, and know that they're needed & their time iswell spent. Good suggestion!

Ah but not one page is a waste of time. Someone will always want a page even if others don't. In my eyes no page scanned is a waste, people like myself love the work these guys do and I have sessions when I download and print them out to try and put them all together.

Thanks for the hard work on this guys.
