Whilst I welcome any sort of announcement from ROL as to their future intentions, I now expect them to write (letter, not email) to each Select subscriber in turn, to provide the full information given out at the show, and clarification of the future release schedule.

I was only able to attend the show for a short time, so have only heard about the proposed plans second hand. If it is true that ROL are breaking the terms of the current Select subscription and intend to provide no releases unless further money is paid, I want a full explanation of why this is necessary, and a legally binding contract governing what will be delivered during the next subscription, regardless of how long it may last.

For two years in a row now after extended periods of no releases and no communication ROL have announced plans at the South East show, in order to secure re-subscriptions. Last year the tens of thousands of pounds invested in the scheme by subscribers came to absolutely nothing, what guarantees do we have that this year will be any different?
