That time of year has rolled around again, and today marks MAHQ’s 23rd anniversary. In just two years, it’ll be old enough to rent a car to get away from me! I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to MAHQ over the years, especially in this last year with the complete rebuilding of the site. It’s usually the case that I have some big content update to mark this occasion, but nothing could possibly top launching the new site last year, so I won’t even try!
While there is no big content update today, I do want to make note of a few things:
- Our Podcasts category is getting beefed up thanks to two new arrivals: Mechanista in G and Gundamn! @ MAHQ. We’re happy to be joining forces with the fine folks from Mechanista in G, and as part of our content partnership, you can read about (and listen to) their episodes on MAHQ. Be sure to check out Six (@sixdettmar) and Dylan (@LowPolyRobot) on Twitter, as well as Scanline Media for more great podcast content. Regarding Gundamn!, the infrastructure of the old site didn’t make it feasible to create pages for each podcast episode, but that was one of the top things I wanted to address with the new version of MAHQ. The Podcasts category is being updated with posts for back episodes of both shows, and eventually they’ll catch up and be posting for new episodes as they’re released.
- I recently launched From the Archives, a new Features series that brings back interesting old content that hasn’t been seen on MAHQ in a long time. Expect to see more entries in the future, along with the return of Chaos Theater Redux posts. The Features category didn’t get much love this last year due to my focus being on the site conversion, but expect that to change going forward.
- After catching up on some review backlog, I do intend to create some new series, mainly the previously mentioned OBSOLETE and FLAG. After that, there’s some other things coming that I won’t elaborate on right now.
In closing, thank you also to our dedicated visitors who keep coming back year after year. There’s no point in doing any of this if there isn’t an audience that enjoys it.
