    Western & Eastern Treasures going all digital? Say it ainít so!

    Hey folks,

    Iím reading the March, 2019 edition of W&ET and came across this:

    Is it really going out of print to go all digital? That sucks. I love the joy of getting the magazine in the mail and I donít always want to read off a screen, especially if Iím reading before going to sleep.

    Super disappointed, Iím hoping I just misunderstand whatís being said here.

    Lost Treasures went away and not this publication. Digital on line version is suppose to be available for a fee. Some how I cannot see me setting on the john with my lap top or pad. In the future there might be a on line version of metal detecting and you will only be able to do that instead of actually getting out and digging.

    I hate it too, I'm so tired of reading on a screen all the time. I love grabbing a magazine and sitting down to read, I even signed up for two-year subscription and it's a going digital.

    I am really going to miss it. I wonder how long you will be able to view the digital version. I have paper copies from well over twenty years ago that I can access anytime I want.

    Kinda makes me think that some of these folks that are running these outfits are suffering from what is now known as "DEVICE ADDICTION".

    I think a major point will be how it is made available. I have some digital magazines that I can download as a .pdf file and I can keep them forever and do whatever I want to with them. Others make you use and online reading service which restricts what can be done with it and possibly how long it will be available. It is a money saving move for the publisher. Looks at digital distribution and storage costs versus print. Also, from a reader standpoint, I can save and store a ton of digital magazines on a single memory card.

    That’s sucks. I don’t feel like such a millennial dirt bag when I’m reading my paper edition of my favorite periodical.

    Well that explaines why i didn't get the Jan. Issue. I'm about 6 months behind in reading them.
    ....it really sucks cause i just renewed for 2 years. What do they do if you don't have an e-mail address? I don't have a device i can have them downloaded to.
    My phone storage sucks.
    Done in by the e--world....again!

    Washingtonian, wow, your right, I just re-read my magazine and saw this posting.... holy crap, that sucks.. I love the magazine, I have been getting it 20 ++ years. I guess I'm suppose to get a letter in the mail, telling me how to get it on line from now on... I'll see how it go's.. I always keep a couple copies in my bathroom.. lol Won't be the same... too much modern tech tech.... I couldn't even pay cash for my checked bag at the airport, must be on a card... Who doesn't like CASH ?

    I renewed for 2019. If this is true, last year to do so. I can find all kinds of crud on the internet to look at.

    Exactly. I purposefully signed up because I appreciate the print medium. I know this probably saves them some money but man, I think theyíre going to lose are huge share of their readership. I can already read all the stories I want online on TNet, metaldetectingforum, findmall. Super disappointed.

    This is bad news. There's still American Digger which is an excellent magazine.

    Ya that is a bummer. I just got my renewal and I always got paper. They were the last one that I subscribed to and I'm not interested in digital so I guess I'm out. Just going to have to get out and do more of the real thing. Good luck this year to all
