I thought I give a new kid on the block when it comes to old gaming magazines a quick plug
Old Game Mags
They may not have a lot, but they do have a very liberal policy when it comes to submissions

I am the owner of Old Game Mags and some you will probably recognise me from my contributions to magazine preservation over at Retromags and OoPA
I am a long time Amiga and Atari ST fan (I still have an Amiga, 4 ST/STE's and a Mega ST as well) and I have a lot of magazines for both systems which I will be scanning and making available at my site over the coming months. Being Atari oriented over here you might want to check out my recent releases ...
Atari ST User 097
ST Action 068
ST Review 011
Page 6 Issue 05
.... and tomorrow ST Format 045 will be uploaded and made available. For those interested in the quality I am destroying the mags (debinding them) and creating 1920 horiszontal resolution mags to get a high quality digital version so expect them to be a reasonable size download.
Anyways ... That's about it from me. Feel free to pop by and have a look around. Expect to see lots more Atari goodies appearing at regular intervals over there.

But owners of any site have to weigh these sorts of things up when determining what to make available. Where I am flexible compared to OoPA and Retromags is that I have no issues making suitable quality scans available where they were created by someone else. As far as I am concerned if they have been released via torrents/websites freely etc then they are there to be used. Preservation is about ensuring they are available for future generations to read and enjoy. I find it rather sad when people want to apply ownership rules to a product that isn't exactly legitimate in most cases anyway.

I still have a bunch of Atari User issues I need to send your way Kiwi. Hopefully you will be able to use them, though they are in what is accepted as "low resolution", they are pretty decent and apparently the only versions available right now.
