    Last year myself and some other members had some of are replies published in This Old House magazine. Did any of you ever get a copy of that issue a promised? I for one never received mine? The reason I'm asking is because they have contacted me to do this again. I'm having some second thoughts about it. Looking for others thoughts.

    It's a crap shoot whether you get one or not. I did an extensive review of a product for them, they cut the review to two sentences. I got to keep the product, but got no magazine.

    I and others have made contributions through this forum that have been published in the magazine, some have gotten a magazine, most have not.

    That's the answer I was expecting I would get. I think I'll stay out this year. Don't like dealing with people that don't keep there word.

    It's not nice to promise a free copy to contributors and then not to deliver it.

    I was in last years for the first time. I don't recall that they ever promised me any issues. Even though I am a subscriber, I think they would have had to ask for my street address in order to send me another copy as I have not put a lot of personal information in my account here.

    Keith, they did ask me for my address with the intention of sending me a copy. Which they never did even after I made several more requests. I had to finely buy a copy for myself.
