    When was Advance Mag issued just prior to this one?

    Does this represent 1 month of production?

    2 months?
     
  3. Pooks

    Not sure. I only have one other Advance Mag for 2009 and that's Advance Issue # 200 circa March 2009

    200 March
    201 ??
    202 ??
    203 Dec

    They mags are sent out in a very sporadic fashion.

    Looks like it's published quarterly now - wasn't it monthly back in the day?

    So few completions now. A couple of years ago I was getting promo from all these places, and I'm pretty sure that they were even repeating completion names in more than one edition. The only reason I noticed that was because I was skimming the list and noticed an old friend's name. Then with the next mag, I was skimming the list and saw the same old friend's name. Comparing the mags, it was the same service completion listed both times.

    The CoS has stopped sending me promo, so I can't compare the recent lisitings.

    If anyone gets mags and promo, please send them on to Kristi Wachter, who runs the truth about scientology site.

    That's a relative lot of R6EW completions compared to 20-30 years ago, too.

    And Sky Dayton -- wasn't he like an OT ages ago?

    This is not Advance Mag but AOLA News. I'm just guessing on the date as none of the Scn promo/mags have dates.

    What lousy stats no matter which way you look at it re if monthly or quarterly stats.
    It's interesting that I'm now seeing on the completions list the names of children belonging to the people I used to know.

    why don't we ask the OT3 completions if it was the same Xenu story that were gave to study that they saw on the internet?:eyeroll:

    That must be a total let-down when you see that the signs people were holding at protests were correct.:omg:

    And with the amount of clears made in this period of time, well then at that rate they should have the planet cleared real quick:nervous: (not..)

    ... as does Polly Mathes http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/p/polly-matthes.html

    Stephanie Schafer's not otherwise on Kristie's site.

    Interesting that, out of five comps, two of the R6EW comps (which was fairly rare for a time) were previously at higher case levels.

    How long does it take

    I recognized someone on the completion list who was on course with me in 1979. 31 freaking years ago?????? and he's finally approved to go onto the OT levels. Unbelievable. How much effort did that take? What could he have done instead? Well, it takes 16 years of college to become a doctor so he could have done that nearly twice. It takes 7 to 8 years to get a Phd. He could have done that like 6 times!

    The fact that it takes dedicated people so long to complete the bridge is another point of insanity.

    The reason it takes so long to go OT is because it's too expensive for someone who is on org lines who isn't already rich. To move into a high income position while on lines is almost impossible because you're constantly being asked to be on course or on staff or join the SO. The idea of creating a high income career is simply out ethics.

    Several reasons.

    Some have disconnected family members and it lets them know if a family member or friend is still in.

    It provides information for researchers on Scientologists when they pull a Rex Fowler type action.

    It shows "stats" and documents Scn's lack of expansion.
