June 2012 NSS News

Postby neversink162 » Jun 7, 2012 3:55 pm

My copy just arrived with duplicate pages 7 - 10, 23 - 26 and missing pages 11 - 14, 19 - 22. Did anyone else's issue come this way? Also, who do I contact to get a corrected copy? Thanks

You should contact the NSS Office directly, (256) 852-1300. They should be able to get you another copy sent out.

We're trying to get a handle on how big a problem we're facing...so, pass the word to call or email the office (manager@caves.org) if you've got a bad issue.

I would call. Last time I emailed HQ it took 4 weeks for someone to get back with me. :sad:

My page numbers are OK, but the formatting on pages 7 and 11 is odd and inconsistent, as if the formatting slipped. Both have photos to the very edge of the page, leaving no margin, so page 11 doesn't have a page number and footer. (Makes me wonder if Dave B. laid out this issue!)

The page formatting on my copy (pages 7 and 11) are also not consistent with the rest of the News. I also found that the Skocjanske Jame photograph (page 31) extends through the top margin to the edge of the page.

Miscollations in a publication occur as a human error when the sheets are loaded. Usually they affect only a single signature (small number of copies), so it could well be that this error only affects copies going to Indiana. :shrug: But it's possible that multiple signatures got screwed up. Hopefully not more than the usual number of extra copies that are printed against such contingencies. Just ask for a replacement if you got a bad one. Better yet, save the Society a couple of bucks and ask Bunnell to send you a pdf copy.

But the formatting on pages 7 and 11 are NOT printing errors. Margin bleeds are often used by Dave B. as a formatting device and to squeeze more or larger images onto a page than would otherwise be possible. Get over that.

The NSS office suggested I look at this thread, and I see Alex has made a perfect reply for me already. We've had some issues messed up in the past but its always been a small number of copies and I'm sure this will be too. The office will have the overrun, although the printer will probably mail out replacement issues at his expense which is admirable. I'll give the office a PDF in case some want to go that route, especially as I am leaving for convention pre-camp this sunday.

As Alex and Dave both commented, I'll just say that if you want my near perfect issue, I'll put it up for auction...with a beginning bid of say...ten dollars...and go from there. Come on now, what do I hear next?
