    I managed to get in to the mag but only by requesting a new password token, I HAVE ASKED FOR HELP FROM THE MAGAZINE, I CANNOT get my magazine any other way than to constantly say forgot password and resetting again amd again to the one I always use, sorry but if this isn’t rectified I will definitely ask for a refund as I don’t have full access or download.
