I have a question about Propaganda.........

I know we talked about this before, about the new issue but......
*You can't subscribe to Propaganda now(anyone know why???)
*at 'atU2.com', they had a snippet of information....someone at Propaganda said no new memberships were being accepted "per U2's request"
What does all this mean??
Whenever the new issue comes, it will be my first, so I don't know procedure.
If you'd like, I can link to the article at 'atU2.com'......
If anyone knows anything............
Thanks

I have been wondering about Propaganda too. It's been since the tour started I guess since we all received the last issue.

I want my propaganda!

I registered last July, so I am new to the ways of Propaganda, but if you look at past issues... this is the longest they've gone without an issue.
During Popmart they had three issues published, surely with the 'Elevation Tour' and everything that the band has been up to, there would be plenty to write about.

I want a PROPAGANDA!!!

according to their web site, which says(as of 02*18) that a new issue should go to print in 3-4 weeks, this new issue should be printed this week or it was last week.

<i don't think i could have written that sentence in a more confusing manner >

the website is www.u2propaganda.com

Well I know that a friend of mine from Spain got an email from the same person as above, (CC), saying that they were not accepting any new memberships. Although the email did not specify it was as per the band's request.

Possibly that U2 want the benfits of Propaganda to remain like they always have been. For example... due to such high demand, so many people weren't able to get tickets through Propaganda for the third leg. Could perhaps be because everyone is starting to know about this service, and Propaganda wants to keep the membership to a manageable minimum. To keep all it's members happy?

I am grasping here....

Whenever the new issue comes, it will be my first, so I don't know procedure.

It is possible they are just saying that -- the "by the band's request." Not sure of the intention, but really -- what on earth kind of reason would they have to *request* to stop memberships? (Assuming the rumours of the band breaking up are indeed not true..)

Well, like I said, his email did not
contain the phrase "by the band's request"

so one person said it was 'per the bands request' and someone else didn't mention that?

i think we are nitpicking over some small details here. for whatever reason they are not accepting new members at the moment, maybe they don't do so when a new issue is being mailed out. and on that note it does appear that a new issue is about to be, or already has, been mailed perhaps.

we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?
