I definitely hope someone is willing to pick up this torch. I think most people find this thread a useful resource.

We're pretty proud of this one, which acts as a capstone to a year of organization-friendly releases (Boardroom and Curia, Back to School, and Dungeon Fantasy: Guilds). I'm glad that 2015 saw GURPS grow so much in this area.

If no one volunteers I'll probably still do it, but it's probably not going to be as well-maintained. :-/

Same here. It can add extra depth to existing campaigns of many types or these supplements can be focus for a campaign.

I plan to keep maintaining my GURPS Rumours List - is there any useful way we can share information into both formats, to make life easier?

Well, with the fact that they don't really name the products going through the pipeline anymore, keeping track of that on the front page is much less effective.

The product releases probably could be done every couple of months.

I personally follow the thread so the front page is not hit by me much. It is nice to see the list of products. When I go to purchase a bunch, I can see what has come out since I last purchased. But really, all you need on the front page is a link to the store that will display a filtered list of GURPS products going back in time. Links to the Speculative Sources sites would be good as well. This would greatly reduce the maintenance.

To me the comments in the thread are of the greatest interest.

That's a great idea, honestly. But how to execute it I wonder?

I typically hit this thread up on a weekly basis, I'd probably drop to bi-weekly and go from there. Then again, who knows, maybe I can lighten my workload substantially between now and the New Year. We'll see.

Can you just copy and paste for the original posts or you have to provide the actual code text?

Its a much easier task for the 'new person' if they just have to update those three posts.

Roger and I are working something out to automate this. Might not need to do much but do exactly that. We'll see.

Just a suggestion -- pastebin.com is an easy way to share raw test like this.

Okay, it looks like Roger was able to whip up something with his technowizardry that will pull quite a bit of the burden and make updates easy. So I'm going to give it another go head this year. I'll have some new surveys thrown up by New Year's Weekend so keep a weather eye out.
