Quote from: SevenT on 12:18, 20 May 16Oh nay nay and thrice nay Craig. Do not touch a hair upon any of my babies heads... they need to be viewed as they were originally sent out - warts, snotty noses and all. Part of the joy of reading WACCI was trying to spot the fluffs, boobs and goofs (or is it "gooves?) If you start to go around correcting, remixing and "air-brushing" the original magazines you'll remove some of the deeply deep joy you can get from reading them and going "I wonder how they did that effect back in the days before DTP???"I am serious here... just scan them and post them up here as they were originally sent out in the Royal Mail - otherwise you'll just end up with a mess like McCartney did when he buggered around with the original Master Tapes of the "Let It Be" LP! Please don't try putting lipstick on a pig - even if it is your absolute favorite cutest Vietnamese pot-belly pig called Pretty Pink Pigella.... even the cutest pigs who get dressed in spandex, shades, a cool fedora and a tutu just end up looking ridiculous potential ingredients for a damn good bacon sandwich.Don't go all George Lucas like on a deeply misguided Star Wars type trip - everyone actually wants to see the first print of Star Wars that came out in 1977 not the 120th "improvement" he churned out last week. So no OCRing, no spell-checking, no reformatting, no substituting Hi-res pics for the older chunky ones, no airbrushing over the reality - the great CPC unwashed need to be able to see the real article that WACCI subscribers paid good wonga to receive through their letterbox every month.If the scan is of a page that has a crease in it... that's how the readers read it back in the day. Leave it in or scan a copy that doesn't have a crease.Seriously I gave my permission to create an archive of WACCIs not a representation of what they could have been had they been produced in 2016. You may as well go and OCR the Gutenberg Bible or add an outboard motor to the Cutty Sark. Don't go re-editing my original editing work.SevenT (STeven)

Quote from: SevenT on 10:37, 20 May 16Hi folksGlad to see that so many of the original WACCI crew are still alive and kicking... and most importantly - on here! Hi y'all.There seems to be a little consternation going around about the legality of the archiving of electronically copied issues of WACCI. Just to set the record straight here is a copy of an email I have just sent to Gryzor (and I hope he doesn't mind me taking the liberty of posting it here before asking him - but I'm sure he'll forgive me.)****************************************************************I just got off the phone after chatting with Philip DiRichleau and I was a) glad that you and he are in contact now and b) a little bit concerned about what he had to tell me about possible copyright infringement threats made against you by a certain third party.For the record... I bought the company "WACCI" and all the ensuing rights to it back in back in 1988 from, its then owner, Jeff Walker. I was the sole owner and I ran it as an ongoing business for my personal profit. I still own the name WACCI, the intellectual rights and the format of the magazine - to this day it is still my property - I never relinquished my ownership of the company known as WACCI. In 1991 I had had enough of producing the magazine and "passed on" the right to continue produce the magazine using the name WACCI and the WACCI format to the newly established "WACCI Club" which had been organized, chiefly, by Uncle Clive Bellaby and several other interested WACCI magazine subscribers. The agreement was that WACCI would be run on a "club" basis (an entity which was wholly separate from my WACCI business) and that no one member of the club would financially benefit from the magazine. The WACCI club was owned and run by its members and its constitution specifically stated that any profits made would be ploughed back in to the running of the club.Phil pointed out to me that recently a certain person - somehow involved with the WACCI club back in the day - may have (erroneously) inferred that he might be unhappy with your plan to set up an "official" online archive of the WACCI magazine because it may disrupt his (illegal) sales of back-issues of the magazine. I can assure you that no one apart from myself has the legal right to object to your proposed project - not only do I endorse it wholeheartedly but I am deeply humbled to think that after all these years anyone would even consider undertaking such a Herculean task. To this day I am still the sole owner of all intellectual rights to the WACCI name and magazine format. No one else can disapprove or threaten legal action against you, your site or any of its members for going ahead with scanning and putting ALL the available issues of WACCI you can obtain.I am sure that if you ask any of the subsequent Editors of the magazine (who are still alive), Clive, Phil, John, Dave et al. would echo my sentiments.In short - no one else apart from myself has the legal right to object to your archiving project and what is worse, no one should be still selling back-issues of the magazine (for what is obviously personal financial gain) so long after the WACCI club was officially dissolved. As the legal owner of the WACCI magazine I am quite happy for you to put ALL of the issues online. Should any questions about this matter arise in the future I suggest you direct the questioner straight to me and my lawyer will be more than happy to answer them in full.Yours Steve Williams RN............................................................

Quote from: wronskian on 02:08, 26 May 16Hi folks, I'm Sam/Wronskian from the csa8 days (I know Craig knows me, maybe not many others!) - the newsgroup, and the IRC channel for the years when that was still a thing!I saw Craig's post over on csa8 and was about to offer to help Brian, as I only live a couple of miles from where he is (or at least was in 2014, which is the last reference I can find to him locally).It sounds like you've got things resolved, though - and indeed may not want Brian to chip in now! So hopefully all sorted.Best wishes to all, so glad to see the CPC scene strong in 2016! Who would have thought it?Cheers,Sam or Wronskian :-)
Quote from: CPC_Fan on 15:48, 23 June 16Just a quick update. I am still working on scanning the almost full set of WACCI's that Clive Bellaby gave to me. So far I have scanned 8 issues. Unfortunately real life has got in the way a bit recently and progress has come to a halt. However I still intend to keep on scanning them. Hopefully I will be able to start the progress again shortly. Will update you all again when I have made some more progress.
Quote from: kailokyra on 07:20, 29 October 18Not related to the previously mentionned treasure stash, but I scanned several issues of Wacci that are now available on acpc.me (https://acpc.me/#ACME/FANZINES_PAPIER/[ENG]ENGLISH_(UK)/WACCI)
