You seem the most comfortable with April, so it's all yours!

April is mine, all mine! Looking at the first post, you're scheduled for October.

Doh! Apparently the topic for my post should be "paying attention to what people have actually typed and not being an idiot."

Sign me up in whatever timeslot you like. The topic will be "Running a public open table".
Backstory: I got interested in the idea as put forward by Justin Alexander and just went for it. Made contact with my FLGS and set up playing at the shopping mall regularly for whoever shows up. Its been a hoot. Articles about the prep here: https://strangeflight.blog/2017/01/11/constructing-an-open-t...

It seems like we have a host of GM volunteers - that's great! I wonder if it is worthwhile doubling up on the post rate, at least for a while, to get the GM spotlight feature embedded in peoples' minds? It seems like we have plenty of willing writers, and I'm sure many people are willing to post multiple articles.

I've pretty much finished my article, so I could post it April 1st, and someone else could post theirs April 15th.

I would support this, at least to start with - I think it might also help keep people involved, as I for one can't even think about committing to something more than a year out!

Can't be too fast for me. If we had one a day, I'd be happy.

Ok, my article is finished. Put me in the revised schedule as early as you like.

[edit]And I'm hanging out for the next one to read so at least two a month will be really good. Although too many too fast might dry up the flow.[/edit]

I'm keen to write something. I'm also happy to be assigned a topic. I dont' think I can commit a month out, but give me between 2-10 week's advance warning and we will be golden.

Sweet, I'll be able to start mine off with wishing everyone a Happy Fiscal New Year!

Thanks for managing that, Mulls!

I'm sensing a pattern...

BtS #1: treasure is an illusion
BtS #2: failure doesn’t mean failure

The next will probably be

BtS #3: RPG’s are totally not real, yo! It’s all in your mind! It’s fake; made up! A total fantasy!

The topic I will address is: Choices that Matter.

Unless content and discussion of the BTS series covers the topic sufficiently before my turn arrives.
