Complete Gotrek & Felix Versions / About

  • Ver. 0.69 : (mid) 2013 – (end) 2013 : In the middle of 2013 while I was in the local book store I saw the new(3rd edition) Omnibuses and I was surprised seeing that there where some stories in them. Until then, I had no idea about any Gotrek & Felix story, outside the series. I decided to search it better in the near future. I visited Black Library’s site for the Omnibus editions and saw many more stories! Because of this I created a text file to write their titles. Soon I write not only the titles but which story is included in every Omnibus.
  • Ver 1 : (end of) 2013 – 2014 . Text(.txt) file. I decide to take a better ‘look’ in the internet. Quickly I discover warseer site and from it a link to kalevalahammer site. I find not only the old Games Workshops Books(pre – Black Libray) but also much more information about Gotrek & Felix! I am surprised and thrilled because as long as I search I am finding more and more information! So I don’t stop! Now, I search all White Dwarfs from from my archive(and my friends’ also). While writing all this data to my file I realize that a text file is now insufficient.
  • Ver. 2 : 2014 – 12/2017. I upgrade the text file to a Word file. Much more info is added as I begin a very serious and huge research. Now, the word file gets bigger and bigger and it is 70% completed! I inform my family and my friends about this project. Everybody urge me to publish it in the internet. This is a thought in the back of my mind. I think that this file will be very useful to many Gotrek & Felix fans like me. It will help them to read/learn all(I hope!) info in a quick and easy way and not suffering while searching around internet and various sources like me. One of my friends is John ‘Kourou’ that happens to know how to create sites(that is his job!). He is excited and tells me to make it a WordPress site. I do not know what is this but upon understanding the potential of it I agree!
  • Ver. 2.22 : 01/2017 – 02/2018. I am asking anybody I know for White Dwarf issues I do not have. Little by little I found them all! Now almost 75% of the research is completed! Word file is completed! It is 92 pages long! John asks me to mail it to him. He immediately tells me that word file is a text that nobody (except serious Gotrek & Felix fans) can read! Of course, I agree, so we start further site discussions.
  • Ver 3 : 02/2018 – 07/2018. Research temporally stop in order to create site. Domain names purchase! Starting to put data. Original site collapses!
  • Ver 4 : 07/2018 – 11/2018. New and much better site creation! 80% of the research is completed! From now on all new info will be added straight to the site. Start to make a test post -the 1st!- in 07/2018.
  • Ver. 4.9 : 11/2018 – 01/2019. 85% of the research is completed! I put all the contents(data) in the WordPress site! 28/11/2018–>1st post, 23/01/2019—>last post!
  • Ver. 5 : 01/2019 – 04/02/2019. 90% of the research is completed! Link between posts. Recheck all posts and edit if necessary. Creation of pages. Upgrade to WordPress 5. Redesign/retouch/upgrade page and site. Plug-ins import.
  • Ver. 6 : 04/02/2019 – 18/02/2019. The research is almost completed (95%)! I put excerpts / recheck / edit(if necessary) all posts. Erase of all galleries and creation of new ones. Redesign/retouch/upgrade pages, site and plug-ins.
  • Ver. 7 : 18/02/2019 – 26/02/2019. Research completed! Pages are all completed! All images: recheck / edit / caption (in some). Recheck all posts/pages and edit if necessary.
  • Ver. 7.7 : 26/02/2019 – 10/3/2019. Redesign caption in images. Recheck all posts/pages and edit if necessary.
  • Ver. 8 : 10/3/2019 – 12/3/2019. Recheck all posts/pages and edit if necessary. Redesign/retouch/upgrade pages, site and plug-ins. At last! Posts are ready! Site is published!
    • Revisions : each post has at least 6. Most : 124! Average: 15!
  • I never intended to do all this from the start! My staring goal was to write a ‘memo’ about the titles of all stories. But because the stories where many I wanted to write also, which story was included in which book. But while doing each step I was excited to do a little bit more! And then more! So little by little the project was transformed from a text file to a big WordPress site!
