You can use the ftp to send them on the server and I'll add them on the site.

Multi format magazines:
ACE magazine: #1 - #55
Computers and Video Games magazine: #60 - #125 (should be the period where the ST has content)
Your Computer: 1986 - 1988 (again, most relevant period, but earlier issues available)
STart magazine: v01_01 to v05_07
Atari User: v01_01 to v04_07
Page 6 magazine/New Atari User: #18-#85
These are all English magazines, as it's the only language I can read I've also found a bunch of disk magazines online, so I've grabbed those too.

I beg to differ.
We should keep the better quality version. HDD space is relatively cheap nowadays.
Once we discard the better quality version, it's gone forever.
But with the better quality version, we can reproduce the smaller size version anytime.
