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.

It's all good - I really do appreciate it when people are excited about what I do, I just wanted to add a bit of real life perspective to the process :D

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).
