Ooo! Ooo!  I'll take that one.  It's going to take extra research and I'm not exactly quick about my articles, but I'd be more than willing to handle that request.

Please confirm i got stuff right in the schedule.


I'll try to get Yen-lo-wang up this year but unsure when exactly. Not this or the next week certainly... Or, well, the next week is a possibility but let's no plan on that. Also need to contact Grey about Kai Allard-Liao CotW article...


So, who's got something for this week?


EDIT Right, forgot. I'll drop my request for Bakeneko (meaning, i won't add it to the list... not that we write about the requests that much anyway).
And also dropping my reservation on the Panther and Wight for now. Interesting 'Mechs but considering i have trouble updating this thing right now, i'd rather not keep stuff reserved for months. Just one request: In case someone's gonna write about the Wight, PM me, i might have some input.



Also, it occurred to me that i might try to get Yen-lo-wang up for Christmas or so, if Grey agrees to write about Kai (PM'd Grey about this). A special article duo about a famous person and his 'Mech would be nice for Christmas, no? That said, no promises.

Put me down for the Gallowglas.  Not sure when it will be done, but hopefully soon.

If people are busy with the American holiday and can't get something done, I'm pretty much either at home painting or working this week, so I can put something together if no one else is able.

No idea WHAT, mind you, but something.  ;D

Oh- Empyrus, reminder, if you need help keeping the schedule post updated, let me know and I'm happy to help out- I can edit your posts with my admin-y might, so I'm just as able to keep it updated as you are.

(Mods and admins very rarely use that ability, mind you, so don't go thinking we're the thought police or anything- any edits we make are clearly marked at the bottom of a post as 'last edited by Jadehellbringer' with a timestamp. But here I'm happy to use it to help out if it would be useful.)

No problem, i got it. Just had busy last weeks... a bad bout of flu does that. That said, if i manage to repeat this absence, go ahead and edit as necessary.
Or someone else can take over the schedule if necessary, just like i did since GreekFire has vanished.

Added myself for Dec. 30th for the Commando. Probably will include the IIC.

Schedule update!

Yen-lo-wang is now slated for Friday 16th, and Grey will be posting Character of the Week Kai Allard-Liao that weekend.



Also, i'm claiming Thunder and Lao Hu for a double article; and Galahad and Glass Spider for another double article.

EDIT Two double articles... i'm insane but i'll get them done.

So, i was inspired and wrote an article for the Cossack and scheduled it for 23th...

What are we getting this week?

Remember, Hellbie has an Apollo article stashed in case no one has anything, so no need to rush.

Alternatively, i can reschedule the Cossack but i need to re-write a line if i do.

I was thinking the same thing. Would like to read about Apollo and Apollo's Law in right context (not having been around when it was last talked about).

Of course, it is possible i'll get Galahad for Friday...

Uh, what do you write about? Mystery 'Mechs?
Or do you need a deadline before you can decide or what?

16th OK?
I'll reshuffle the schedule so that i post Cossack this week, next week we have Hellbie, then you, then me with Yen-Lo-Wang (Grey will post Character of the Week for Kai before that), then Hellbie with Commando.

EDIT Also, i'll do this shuffle even if it isn't OK for you, we'll just get something else for 16th then.
