Hey, was there any response back about this?

How people here have requested this? Shall we make a new thread in one of the other forums requesting its release?

The response was that it would not be made free because it's (effectively) the only one that isn't free and thus incentive to buy a subscription. I replied that the lack of Car Wars articles since 2003 meant it was unlikely that anyone here would purchase a subscription for the one article, no matter how useful the contents, but that was no help.

I still recommend people email pyramid@sjgames.com and ask for it to be changed. I don't think a forum thread would be as effective (we don't know if the person who would make that decision even reads the forums) but you're welcome to start one. Maybe the new Pyramid forum?

It's IP (Intellectual Property) so I think they have the right to keep it subscriber only... I also agree that no one is going to subscribe to Pyramid for Car Wars "stuff" if that's all there is...

Would anyone be interested in buying a PDF of that article only? Perhaps requesting that that article hit e23 for 99 cents would be effective?

FWIW, I personally wouldn't, as I already have copies of that article from being a Pyramid subscriber.

Has anyone else emailed them and asked? Multiple voices are more convincing. (Plus you wouldn't have had to ask what the response was if you had asked for yourself.)

Errr... I just took out a pyramid subscription to get Car Wars stuff.

Kinda wish I'd read this first ;)

Still $20 is not much of a stupidity tax.

1. Insulting someone while asking them for a favor only damages your cause.

2. If you'd like to see the 2050 Uncle Al's article (ID# 1586) free and you haven't done so already, send a polite email to pyramid@sjgames.com and ask.
