Hey everyone.
It's pretty obvious that the June deadline for having the Tarleton busts finished isn't going to be feasible.
I'd like your imput for a new end date. I still have some work to do on the piece as well as writing up the final installment. Of course, you folks will need time to finish it too.
Any suggestions for a new end date?
Thanks,
Craig

Hi Craig,

I got no problem with an extension, I could crack on and finish it but I'd rather finish following along after you as we planned. After all, trying out your method is what I wanted to do anyway. Time span doesn't matter to me, whatever you or the others want. (And Rudi of course)

All the best

Hi guys,

Firstly, Craig, as I've told you before: great SBS. I can't wait to see the final - full - SBS.

Now, about the extension... for the moment I've extended the campaign end date to 31 July 2007. This is obviously only for those that are taking part of the campaign aspect of this group-build. Naturally this date is reasonably flexible. When I was extending the end-date I was surprised to see that we started this on approximately 20 October 2006. So naturally, guys, I'm pretty keen for us to bring this to a close... I'm sure you'll agree with me on this point And please, this is not meant as a criticism of anyone, least of all Craig who has patiently been leading this campaign/SBS... we all know "*life* happens".

What I propose is that we set the end date for a calendar month after we publish the final installment. That should give all that are participating in the campaign aspect of this build ample time to complete the final steps. What say you all?

Rudi

p.s. Craig... as long as the final installment is published before the end of August I'm happy... that way we don't hit the year long campaign mark (and I'm sure you'll be happy to get this monkey off your back )

Hi guys,
Thanks very much for your understanding on this matter.
I know that there are a couple of others that signed up for the campaign that haven't responded to this thread. I'll email of PM them to try and make sure they know what's going on with it.
Rudi...
October...WOW! It's hard to beleive it's been that long. And you're right...it will be good to bring this to a close. I like the idea of it ending one month after I get the final installment published.
