    Fine Woodworking online subscription poll

    Okay I will try this one again.

    So I have been wondering even though i am a subscriber to that fine magazine, FineWoodworking how many of our members are actually paying subscribers to the online side of the site.

    Please vote in the poll.
    cheers

    Rob,
    I was a 'charter' subscriber, so I only paid $14 to join, and they've been renewing me yearly at that same rate. I wouldn't pay the $35 (I think that's what it is now) though.

    I'm an online subscriber, but I don't get the hardcopy version. They have a lot of info on the site, but I'm not sure I've gotten my $35 worth of good out of it.

    Like Vaughn, I am out to save the environment and my office from being overrun with hardcopy. I like the organization and the ease of finding stuff without paging through 5 issues to remember "where I saw that". Their site could use some navigational re-vamping. One of my peeves is that if I get 10 pages of results for "boxes" and I open an article on page 5; when I leave that article I am taken back to the beginning of the search results.

    I subscribe to the magazine so I get the on-line for the $14 price. I like both, it gives me something to read in bed, and if I need something specific I can go on-line.

    if you're paying for a hardcopy subscription, and online, aren't you paying for the same info twice?

    The online subscription is discounted for hardcopy subscribers and the ability to search, watch videos, read blogs, look at member's work and bookmark articles and all that is a real benefit. I just skip the hardcopy.
