 A senior club member asked me to pass this on.

People are getting tired of waiting for their issues of the award :lol:winning Viper Magazine.
BUT as usual, when they ask a question, it's not answered. My question is this; If you have a problem with the magazine, would you not expect the people that run the magazine to have the answers.? Check out the hilarious reply from "Viper Magazine". Basically just blowing off the question.

    Whats up with the magazines?

        Ive only got 1 so far this year. I thought they were supposed to be bi-monthly. That means they are two mag's behind. Just curious as to whats up??????????

    Re: Whats up with the magazines?

        I was wondering the same thing.

        This is a question best fielded by your current national VCA officers, a list of which can be found here:

        http://www.viperclub.org/members/regions.php

        That said, hopefully this particular issue should be in the mail to you very shortly:

     

        Curious about that cover story? It's a good one!

       

        The club should be getting these mailings back on track shortly, so plan on all six issues arriving in your mailbox during calendar 2013. They should all be worth the wait!

        Random note.. How/when are we supposed to get our yearly ID membership badges? Forgive me but this is my first year I have joined. Its been... 4 months?

    Re: Whats up with the magazines?

        Ditto, kinda been wondering about the badges myself as well. I was wondering if maybe they'd just come with raffle tickets, but that's still a little while away.

        The membership badges are ordered in batches for economic reasons and can take a bit of time for arrival depending on when the batch is ordered.

        If you have questions on your VCA membership please email admin@viperclub.org with your information and name so the VCA can research for you directly.
        Happy to help answer your questions.

        Is there a particular reason we can't just post an answer to the membership question here in the members-only section, or is it region-specific? I was also wondering why delivery had stopped.

Not sure if the "new" Viper Magazine was ever on time once Chris Marshall took it away from JR Thompson?  I could be wrong, about every one of them being late since CM took over?  CM had my 2 stories and input on the cover story deleted while JR Thompson was finishing the layout on their last magazine before it became the "new" Viper Magazine.  I guess I got the boot just before just before JRThompson did.   :headscratch:

It is the publisher that is responsible for timely delivery.  Fire him and get someone reliable, like JR Thompson.

Why would VM refer any questions to the NO?  CM passing the buck?  Their track record on truthfulness leaves a lot to be desired.  The delivery performance of the VM staff is embarrassing at best.  Almost half way thru the year and only 1 issue delivered.  Apparently that issue arrived in pieces.  Where is Heisenberg?

Keep asking questions. Lee pays $160K the management team and they give answers like this:


Just so you have some clarification on the matter. Forum members posts are not removed for no apparent reason. When a poster violates forum posting policies it is within the scope of our moderators to remove the post, posts, or even an entire thread for that matter if it is necessary. Furthermore...questioning why posts are removed is against forum posting policies as well. I refer you to the forum posting policies here... http://forums.viperclub.org/threads/...sting-Policies if you have any further questions please contact your regional president.

the reason the mag is late: srt intervention. this issue march/april was the first viper magazine that was going to arrive on time BEFORE march/april. it was being worked on when ralph stepped in. they put the magazine on hold. the dillema they faced was a. release the magazine without srt ads or ralphs editorial or....buy some time and delay the magazine hoping ralph cools off. they chose to wait.

cm passed the question to 'the officers' in his response in that thread. why? since ralph has cm's ass in his sights and that cm has fallen out of good graces with the officers these days...pass the turd. theres a rift between cm and the vca. i guess id be upset too if my money train is being derailed.

yes anyone who subscribes to the viper magazine should be concerned that the chief editor/salary earner cannot answer the most basic question about his own magazine er i mean the vcas magazine. sign of things to come.

and what does the wet sock respond with  "cost savings sending out bids" but he states the next magazine is going to better than ever. if the mar/april issues arrives july does will the may/jun issue will arrive sep/october? november? those 'bids' sure are saving money.  :lol:

Thank you for the answers Heisenburg.

It's truly a shame. After all this time of close relationships with Dodge/SRT, and a level of access other car clubs could only dream of, a few egotistical people had to f*** it up.

It still makes Chrysler look bad when someone reads the "new VCAs" bylaws. 

Kind of political to write bylaws stating that 2 insults to members of the Board will get you banned.  Any 2 members of the Board can have any member removed if I remember correctly?  I'm not a VCA member after receiving the Member of the Year award so I don't access the VCA forums.
