If it was a true Omni article, you could just swap out a previous 'Mech and put in this one.  :))

Would anyone be interested in doing a Kintaro article? I'm thinking of doing an ASMotW for it, and doing a matched set could be cool. To say nothing of giving me a hard deadline to motivate me to get the danged thing done...

Next week sounds good. These usually go up on Fridays, right?

How dare you not post an article about fictional robots for free.  You have ruined Christmas.  You monster.

 O0  Take your time, man!  It's all good.
I'm not sure how long you've been around on the forums, though you have a thousand posts. Never take anything JKlantern says seriously unless it's about food.

Right, have the Omni Centurion article written. I think. I'll check on it again on late Thursday to see if it seems workable (need read it when it is no longer fresh in my mind), and if it won't need any tweaking, i'll post it.

And now, to update the List for this page...

Since JadeHellbringer didn't write about Yen-lo-wang (as i suggested it might be covered in a separate article), i guess it is my next project. Though i'll be asking for Hellbie's opinions, i reckon. Sorta co-op project.
EDIT It would be nice to have Kai Allard-Liao character article to go with this. Would someone be willing to write that, or do we contact Grey and ask if he might do it?

I thought you meant you wanted it left out. I can certainly go back in and flesh that section out with a more in-depth review though if you'd prefer, not difficult at all. Sorry! Bad communication on my end, I guess! (Seems that article is going over poorly anyway  :-[ )

No no, i didn't say it had to be left out, i suggested it could have its own article. At least that was my intention. You never said anything to that (unless i somehow missed it?), that's why i said "Hellbie left it out" (or whatever i wrote on this page earlier). Poor communication from me too, i guess.
EDIT Looking at what i wrote, i definitively didn't think through what i was writing.
EDIT2 Yup, looks like i effectively laid a claim on Yen-lo-wang, when i should have formatted it as a question. So, yeah, bad communication on my part.

So, how about we leave Yen-lo-wang for another article, preferably so that we also get Kai Allard-Liao article at the same time?
EDIT For format, perhaps you could PM me your thoughts about Yen-lo-wang variants and i'll quote them in the article, or something like that? Or do you write and i share my thoughts or...?

Dunno why you say your article's going over poorly though.

Oog blorg...work has been completely kicking my ass all this week, I haven't even had time to *think* about the Kintaro, much less write about it. Go ahead and put the regular article up if you want, but the AS one likely won't be until next week.

(For those that are curious, I live in the US, work for my county's elections office, and in my state, early voting starts on Monday.)

Uh, you and Marauder were scheduled for the next week, Friday 28th. At least, that was the idea, since i'll be posting Omni Centurion, to follow on Hellbie's Centurion.


Speaking of that, the Omni Centurion will go up in a moment, somewhat early but i really need to get it done and out of my mind so that i can focus on finishing my companies and making a miniature order. Also food.
EDIT... And i'm day early anyway. Oh, well, i got stuff to do tomorrow, like finally fixing my PC. So the Omni Centurion will up in a moment.

Remember also that I have the Apollo in the hopper in case of a problem, so if you find on a Thursday that your article isn't ready to go and you might not be able to do it, send me a PM and I can have that posted in minutes- it's on a USB drive on my work badge, so I've always got it on me.

Meanwhile, my note to Ivan The Not-So-Terrible was on 9/28, and still no reply. If I haven't heard from him in the next couple of weeks I may just take the Thunder Hawk and run with it for sometime late this year (specifically 12/9)

With the exception of a paragraph from Jymset, the Chaffee article is finished and ready for posting, so feel free to put it down as needed on the schedule.

That's what's on schedule currently, with the Apollo as a backup.

My Chaffee article is meow finished, and can go as a backup Friday if Hellfire isn't ready with the Apollo, or next week on November 4th if he is.
