Already 3 weeks into the season, we're way overdue for a report. So, here you go everybody, fresh from the tracking machine:

We've got 43 projects already submitted, from 13 awesome players.
Some extra new members, who have just now started posting on Craftster have found their way into the games, probably thanks to roler, and have been crafting up a storm. Welcome new peeps!

There is already at least one post for each prompt, so no prompt is feeling sad or neglected. Solitaire is leading the way with 10 submissions, followed by September's Flash Mob, featuring The Game of Life (it makes sense, since we're all playing it, although we don't look like blue and pink pegs, I think).

I'm still adjusting the tracking machine to handle the bounties, so no info on those yet, look for it in the next report.

Here's our current chart:


I'll be sending the tracking link to the team captains later today.

I didn't do a final report for the last round, the machine is refusing to believe I haven't crafted a thing all summer. I've shown her some crafts I did with my kid, that just weren't reported, and I think we'll get that report soon.

And just because, here's some of the stuff we did this summer (when not going to the beach or the pool):

Roler, those tetris pieces are cute, great find. I think it could be simple to wire wrap them, since they have these lines between the squares. If you find a wire that fits there, it can hold in place pretty well.

Hello prompts, goodbye house cleaning Smiley
I love the new prompts, and the bounties are exciting too.
Maybe I'll actually get something done this season.
(oops, is it too early to post? It's already my morning here)

Ludi, according to the tracking machine you have indeed crafted all the things, and then some Smiley
Unless you have some brownie points project to post, you can take the weekend off to prepare for the next round Wink

Both are beautiful. I would hang either one of them in my daughter's room and design the entire room to match Smiley

Sorry for disappearing for so long, things have been crazy here on so many levels. Things are still crazy, but the tracking is all updated and I got a rocking report for all us nerds and nerdettes.

We have just zoomed past the 300 project mark, with 307 projects completed so far.
The tracking machine started spitting cogs again, a symptom of multiple research projects posted by the same player. Ludi and pishaw13 have been doing overtime in their labs, it seems, and have already completed 2 research projects each.
The most popular prompt (that can still be crafted) is Take a Hike, with 18 projects (the same number as the geeky game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock).
An unusual occurrence here in the games is a neglected prompt, the Perseid Meteor Shower prompt has not had any submissions yet.
Leading the way in the projects count is pishaw13 with 26 projects completed, followed by calliemae with 24 and Ludi with 22.

Here's our current chart (I might have missed a few bonus points, I'll run the bonus filter on the machine towards the end of the round):


Off to polish the knobs on the tracking machine, and maybe actually complete a project.

This might be the push I need to actually try something from my mile long bookmarks list. And as a bonus, we get to eat it. So, as long as the recipe isn't horrible, we all win Smiley

I knew it was a bad idea to leave the lab just at the end of the month. With all the last minute posts for June's prompts and all the excitement about the new prompts. It took me almost 2 weeks to clean up the mess of cogs and springs that the tracking machine spewed. Had to bribe the minions with frozen banana treats to calm them down.
Once everything was clear, I managed to get the machine to give me a report. So here's what we got:

We are currently up to 193 projects, from 22 active players.
As always, there is not one single prompt that hasn't gotten at least a bit of attention.
Thea leading prompts are currently June's Battle and Flash Mob, with 18 and 17 projects.
I don't remember seeing a battle or mob ever leading in the project count, but who can resist a good game of Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock.
The most prolific players so far this round are calliemae and wincentvanbuck, with 15 projects each, followed by Ludi and sammylouise40, with 14 each. They might run out of prompts before hitting August.
We've seen a lot of food related projects, maybe due to the new Events feature of the games. Reading the posts in the middle of the night has become dangerous (night time kitchen raids usually don't end in salad).

and here are the totals so far:

Keep up the awesome crafting, everyone. The games are so much fun to follow (now if I only finish something to actually post...).
Stay safe, where ever you are Smiley

Do a lizard with Spock ears, just to confuse everyone Smiley

craftADDchick - I just know the power of books, it's only some sort of GPS or timer in my head that saves me from missing my station (or the fact that the train is arriving when I wait for it) when I'm reading.
