I abandoned them as soon as they stopped being totally free.

That was another aspect of the change I didn't like. When you start out free and then move to a pay subscription, can you honestly expect people to beat down your door and pummel you with money? I was pushing for promotional income and minimal paid advertising. We only ever wanted to cover cost, even with the printed edition. Even the online version cost money, but it was a lot cheaper and easier to distribute.

There was once talk of doing a collection book with additional, sometimes unpublished, material. I don't know if that would have been a feasible endeavor, but it sure sounded good at the time.

I went to an OSC booksigning and actually heard about this, but haven't been able to find any further information on this site or elsewhere out there. Am I missing something obvious (a frequent happenstance ;-)), or will All Be Revealed when the first issue is ready, and not before?

Pretty much the latter. OSC is making sure the first two issues are ready to go, then he will launch all the marketing for it. Right now this thread has pretty much all of the information that has been released to date.

You forgot about the secret decode ring in every issue, Rachel.

Secret Decoder Ring?? I'm so in.

It sounds like a great endeavor, I just hope I never forget the passwords.
