I am/was really interested in joining this organization until I stumbled across this "old" thread. Have the communication issues been resolved? Are the benefits being delivered as advertised? It does appear to be a great orgnization to join and I am more than willing.

John,

Thanks for asking instead of just writing KIDabra off.

Things have improved. Being an all-volunteer organization, there are still some snags, though. I have offered to help in any way that I can...and I received an email from Mark responding to that in less than a day.

The Journal now comes in a digital edition as well as print (we get both)...that will help the Journal problems.

I think the organization is (even with the issues) well worth the money...which is why I renewed my membership last week.

Just a small correction. The most current email, that talks about the digital edition, says something different. For this issue only (the Bruce Bray one), there will be both a digital and print issue. From that point on, there will only be digital issues. The only exception will be the annual yearbook, which will be a print edition they plan to give away to members at the Conference.

So, your membership now includes 5 digital issues and 1 printed issue.

This doesn't sound like a reasonable solution to the problem.

I hope they'll make that very clear on the website.

Gary I beg to differ with you. I have been very frustrated about not receiving the journal and I am very pleased with this action. It looks like they finally realized they have a problem and are trying to find a solution. Now it is a wait and see how quickly they get caught up on back issues but I really believe this is a very positive step forward.
That being said Communication is a problem but sometimes we can only fix one problem at a time just keep moving forward.

If the journals will only be in digital form, it means I'll only be able to read it online. It may work for others, but not for me.

There is more to Kidabra than just the journals, I realize that. My position is signing up for the journals because this time in my life I do not see myself travelling over seas.

In fairness, I thinks it's of importance that this new information is posted on their website so others are not misled to believe they will recieve journals in the mail.

Keep in mind that the email newsletter goes to out to members and non-members, so lots of people were informed of this change. Not just the members. I'm sure that the website will be changed to share this new information, as well.

One reason it might not be changed immediately, is that Dennis is currently dealing with a loss in his family, and he's in charge of the website. So, please cut him some slack.

Thanks Donald, for your card. It's almost over, Mom was buried Friday and we need to get rid of the estate, (sell the house) and fix it. It is on going and draining around here. I try to keep up with the tasks but it is hard.

"Things have improved", really?

On April 2, 2012, I wrote and called for the second time and told them that although
I joined Kidabra in the fall of 2011, the most recent issue of the journal that I received is the "yearbook" (or the Aug/Sept issue). I have not gotten the 2011 Oct/Nov, 1012 Dec/Jan, nor the 2012 Feb/Mar issues. I never heard back.

Just recently I did get the electronic version of the 2011 Oct/Nov issue; nothing else.

I emailed KIDabra the other day and received a reply in less than 24 hours.

What email address are you using?

I seem to have more issues with Kidabra - Although I first joined just over a year ago, I have not gotten any notice about renewing. Aren't notices sent? or have I been forgotten??

I sent an email to Tami about a week ago about this, but have not heard back from her.

Notices are generally sent out. I got mine a month or so before I renewed.

Thanks for the info, but I believe I'm 13 months into my 1 year subscription, and have not seen any notice.

Same here. I received one digital magazine and nothing else. I just reached out on the website contact form again, but the last year was essentially a waste for me.
