Talk:Beckett cancels new Beckett Game Strategyst magazine

Letter

I was going to add a picture of the letter, that picture in the article is actually the old card. For some reason, I can't edit the page anymore. --Nathan2055 20:42, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

That is because regular users don't have the power to edit already mainspaced articles. If you want, I can add it for you :) ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 20:51, 17 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry about the wait, I was busy yesterday. I scanned the letter I got and uploaded it to the archives at http://archives.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Beckett_newletter.jpg. If it's OK, could you change the feature photo to this, and use the caption "Beckett's letter to subscribers". Then please change the thumbnail code to [[File:Beckett newletter.jpg|thumb|Beckett included this letter with this month's issue of Beckett Fun Online Games that was sent to subscribers of Beckett Game Strategyst.]]. Thank you very much! --Nathan2055talk 17:19, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Added. --SnorlaxMonster 17:44, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Strategyst

Shouldn't it say Strategist? Bluesun 05:57, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

The magazine's name was 'Strategyst', even though the correct spelling would be 'Strategist'. See this letter. --SnorlaxMonster 07:48, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Ah. All the text mentions being 'Strategist' made me think there was just one mistake in the title, rather than multiple in the text. Thanks for fixing it the other way then. Bluesun 09:49, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Fewer

That last sentence should have a 'fewer' instead of a 'less'. Colintron 14:46, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

I think you're right. Could you please edit that, Adyniz? --Nathan2055talk 17:28, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
I had actually already fixed this. --SnorlaxMonster 17:44, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

"The Lawsuit"?

Uh, I think Beckett cancelled the magazines because of the economy. Why else would they lose a lot of possible revenue by merging magazines. Besides, Beckett actually moved Unofficial Collector to a bi-monthly subscription, according to the editorial in the final issue. That likely means Beckett was losing money in the economy. --Nathan2055talk 17:25, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

It was the same justification we used on the last article. They couldn't keep they're Pokémon Unofficial Collector going due to the lawsuit, so they merged it with other magazines. --SnorlaxMonster 17:44, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
Yeah. Most likely both of these things are true, I guess the lawsuit caused most of the problems though. --Nathan2055talk 19:57, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
