Is it possible that this blog could convert to telling us when there's a news update on the MSPA page?
Yes, I can do that.
If anyone’s interested, I may also attempt to provide some other form of entertainment during the hiatus. Other webcomic/fanfiction recommendations from submissions, perhaps? (If I do this, I will appropriately tag all such posts with #not upd8 tags, so people with tag-blocking extensions can ignore them.)
