Default I have a different problem.

I do enjoy reading the different point of view articles in MO.



However, I do have a problem with how slow you guys are to post articles. At times you go more then a week without a single new article.



If you average out a single article per week that's only 4 articles a month. The monthly bike mags I susbscribe to come out with way more then 4 articles a month.



Not to mention many times the printed magazines seem to come out with articles on new bikes before you guys do. And the other free on-line mags just get up and walk away from you guys with article count.

[b]

So, bottom line, if you want me to renew my subscription for another year, I had better see more new articles at a faster pace then I have been or SEE YA!

Default Look at our 2006 Index Page

http://www.motorcycle.com/mo/2006_feat_indx.motml



One a week, eh?



September: 9 features

October: 13

November: 7

December: 7

January 07: 12 features (3 were shootouts!), and we had a similar amount on track for February, but then we had to transition to new servers, which is why the Ducati story stayed up so long, and we are sorry about that...



We beat the print mags with the ZX-6R story, the Victory Vision, Aprilia SXV/RXV, CBR600RR and R1. It's possible we have missed one or two intro stories, but keep in mind that the OEMs do not invite ANY Internet magazine to overseas intros anymore. The online mags that do have these reports buy them from freelancers, who give them the exact content they generate for other online mags and print mags, but with a changed first or second paragraph. Is it that magazine's exclusive report? No. We like to run exclusive materiel, because we assume you don't want to pay for rehashed content you could read for free elsewhere.



Some free sites do post more content, but what kind of quality is it? Only one other site does shootouts, and they do them well, but we are currently about tied with them for amount of content posted monthly, and they have twice our staff.



So, the bottom line is that we post lots of fresh content, offer quality motorcycle journalism and are independent from a big media conglomerate or e-commerce site. With a staff of three, that's a lot, and it costs you less then what The Wife spends on Peet's coffee in a week.



I mean jeez, was Hemmingway not worth it because he didn't write as many books as Clive Cussler? Quality, not Quantity!



Thanks very much for your subscription and feedback.



Sincerely,



Gabe Ets-Hokin

All I know is it seems like that Ducati story was up forever. Mean time some of my other fav sites like motorcycle daily had something new every day.
