Here on DA Guanlong came from behind to barely eek out a victory over Yutyrannus, 35 to 33 (with Protoceratops having a strong showing in third with 29 votes). Over on my website it was a very different story, as Sauroposeidon and Guanlong showed massive surges on the last day, with Sauroposeidon almost tripling its vote total to snatch second place (with 127 total votes) and Guanlong more than quadrupling its vote total to gain a ridiculous 347 votes.

So while it seems like a fan or three of Guanlong may have worked overtime to ensure victory Sunday, it does match with the non-anonymous vote on DA, so I suppose all's well that ends well. So look for that skeletal towards the end of the week, but look for a different skeletal soon, and perhaps some hints at the long-awaited revision of Utahraptor near midweek.

When can you post the Guanlong? I don't mean to be annoying but I'm kind of going to need it soon and you did say it would probably be posted back in May and it's already July.

While I appreciate your enthusiasm, you none-the-less do come across as somewhat...impatient. Realize that I basically have several jobs - I teach (including this summer), I am a PhD student, I have a wife and daughter that deserve some of my time, and I also produce technical reconstructions for a living. The skeletals that get done first (outside of those I need for my own research) are inevitably those that involve payment, for the simple reason that there aren't enough hours in the day to do everything (and we need to eat and pay rent). In the case of Guanlong the published material was not sufficient to resolve several scaling issues (and I put many hours trying) and I only recently got enough data to resolve them. I'm quite literally working on the skeletal this evening and hope to have a finished version soon(TM).

I share these here on DA for personal use - I get nothing else from the process except the enjoyment of chatting with those who appreciate the effort. Please don't make this a chore.

When do you think the Guanlong skeletal will be done? It's been quite a while. Are you very busy at something?

Still gathering some extra references. At this point probably a few weeks into May (I have to take my qualifying exams during the second week, so I'll probably be a weee bit busy).

I was planning to have it up tomorrow, but I have additional information that I'm waiting on, so it will probably be sometime next week now.

What - there was a vote?  I thought the fuzzy 'giant' would have romped it in.

Yutyrannus was winning at the halfway point, but lost out to hard-core fans for Guanlong and Sauroposeidon down the stretch.

Would have loved to see a Protoceratops as I'm in the middle stages of building one.  Not sure about a Guanlong but that could be a cool piece to do in the future.

Looking forward to the Utahraptor !

Guanlong, I didn't see that coming. He's a cool little bugger, it'll be nice to have a good skeletal for him.

It was intended that you could vote once each here, on the website, and on my Facebook page, but I suspect someone spent a lot of time clearing cookies and voting on my website.

This shall be a good week.
