3 articles have been published. One is a 2015 video processing pipeline, which remains to be fully completed. Two are major edits to older articles of mine - the Apex Design document that previously occupied my forum, and a previously unreleased revision of my 2009 RTS article.

I have synchronized the LP thread updates to Gameproc. That means the vast majority of XXE The Revenge and one of the older XXE's are now available on the FTP, and the once youtube-only SC AI demo video is now in content extras. Swapped HoMM6 games into Extras alongside Civ5 and out of compilations.

Alright. So, news updates on this site will slow down from hereon since it's mostly sync work. To that end, I think the only pre-third gen casts waiting to be processed is Wings of Liberty. But I'll wait for next month to do that because I'm close to my bandwidth cap. Some reviews I need to edit and fix up a bit before posting. Like, the Darksiders review makes a lot of unrelated discussion about another game in the background, which seems kind of unnecessary. I also need to reverse engineer some youtube rips for some of them.
I've added some new Blizzard Dota casts and more will be going up in the near future. I will be dissolving the two HTML directories and using the Dota Clone web page exclusively for future updates. Those are so insignificant I don't need two locations for them.
I think videos like Civ 5 will go into Content Extras rather than LP's. I have the 2013 game to make info on the pages for, but I have to do a lot of work on the 2015 game because of some oversights bringing in question if I actually encoded certain things or not. Damnit.

Alright, the LP template is more or less finalized. I am beginning the process of syncing the site to the thread with LP's and bringing in the first-generation uploads (that were once on youtube). These are source files, not rips (except for some of the reviews I can't find source for).
This will be a very time consuming process. Redoing all of the css/html for every existing LP page and copy pasting a lot of other information is not going to be particularly pleasant to do, but it's a necessity. Once it's all done, I'll swing back and sync the thread to the site in some respects (namely banners -> splash screens, encode dates and the first-gen uploads).
I've also partially translated over the Retribution page. I'll finish this up soon-ish as well.

Alright, I'm getting pretty close to being done with colors and the layout. I turned the "social media" menu into just a straight link to my blog, but anyone running addons with social media blocking like I do still won't see it for some reason. No biggie, you probably already have my blog link (and I'll put it in About anyways).
Some small cleanup here and there. I'll work on colors for the breadcrumbs bar and the footer at some point, and then translate over minor content, like my articles, before I "finalize" the LP template and begin the great copy paste adventure.

I fucked up all the colors. Probably 50-80% of the pages are unviewable right now. Check the Viking LP page for an idea of where I'm going with this.
Lav made the width bigger (American patriotism) and dynamic (hipster tax).
I'm focused on getting a template I can just copy paste wildly for the LP pages before much else, so most of my effort has been focused on the Viking page.

Hi! If you are reading this, it's either because you're digging through Archives or because it's still on the front page. If it's (likely) the latter, it's because I am doing "stuff" and this placeholder is here to let you know that, yes, this site will actually be used one day.
Currently, it's all about syncing my data from the threads to the site and then aligning the thread with the updates I am making to that data long the way. Additionally, a lot of my other content, like Retribution, will be featured on this site (and potentially CC as well later down the line, once Lav finishes it).
Currently, I have a lot of assets from the thread and then some assets Lav made for the original placeholder. Once I figure out how the Photoshop file works I'll probably make new assets for the entire site and leave the Thread assets with their current style. OR, I'll update the site as a whole to more match CC's color scheme. But that's beyond my skill level at the moment, so I'm going to just use whatever until then. Actually, most LP's and such probably won't have banners for a long time.
Once I'm comfortable dealing with this very confusing text editor/HTML/CSS business, I'll polish up some of my articles I either have in my forum or hidden away in Staff and publish them to this site.
The blog and thread are still going to be the primary locations I make updates. Posts here will primarily be for site-specific updates.
