A Word of Apology
First of all, I apologize for not posting much of anything for the month of August and September. I am thankful Morgenroete has been able to post while he's abroad. With the Specter GM complete, pictured below, and the almost complete 'Weiß Hund Zulu' (all part of the Space Mercenary: Specter GM project), everything has been lined up to be posted, but with the REFURB contest, and my situation in August, I was not able to post much of anything. Hopefully I can find the time to finish up those projects and move on to the next part of the Specter GM project, GM Quel Semi-Striker

"When will you actually finish the Gunbarrel Astray?"
Since late July, I have been spearheading the plans for a group build among my small Gunpla community. After a few of us started planning mobile suit teams, we wanted to involve the rest of the members by creating a team where everyone in the community can contribute a mobile suit of their own. More news on this to come this Fall!
So I decided to create a Featured Articles section. With categories like Recent Competition, and Monthly Top Viewed, the reader can see articles that stand out. Three seems okay for now, I might add more topics later.
With the gallery being hard to read and easily hitting the page limit of 6, I want to overhaul all the pages. For awhile I noticed the list of kits between my brother and myself is quite long. I tried to split it up into "Competition Gallery" and "Regular Gallery," but even that did not do much to make such a long list easy to read.
I think I need to consolidate everything from Reviews, Commissions, and Gallery pages into two pages - one for each author. This will most likely mean I will have to re-do all the graphics for the pages to fit into the new format (this will all happen in the background, so you won't see it until I am satisfied with the format) and most likely re-type some of the content.
As for the Projects page, I might have to incorporate the content into the Gallery through Google Docs/Drive to save space. I am not sure how this will look, but I will definitely consider it.
With that, I will reduce my page count to four (Home, About, Gundariumsmith, Morgenroete), leaving me with two open pages. I'll leave at least one open for a contest page (ooo, you heard it here first - contest to be organized in the future), and the other page, I may bring back my Wishlist, but I do not know how interesting that actually is to anyone.
If you have any feedback or suggestions about the format of this blog, feel free to leave it in the comments (it's filtered so it might not show up, but I'll still read it). Thanks for reading this!
