Part of the problem was my severly limited time to work on the magazine due to being in grad school working on my Masters of Library Science degree. That degree is now done (and I have the sheepskin to prove it). As such, I'm going to be focusing on getting ahead of future issues.
The other part of the problem was that the magazine's website was being seriously overrun with spam accounts and I had to completely shut down new account creation for a while. That issue has also been rectified and accout creation reenabled but many of the current patrons signed up during the lockdown period.
To get back to fulfilling the reward level access, I've already picked out the articles in the submission queue that will be in issue 20 and have marked them properly for access by those of Space Ranger patron level or higher. There will probably be more but those are the ones submitted so far. If you don't have an account on the website and would like you backstage access, you can now create an account and then contact me with your username so I can assign you the proper access.
And you can hold my feet to the fire to work on the magazine regularly to fulfill the rewards.
