Lovely banners mate. Ok I think the gag you were after was "Yeast" being the ingredient that makes bread "Rise". I like the twist of making it a "Group Bake". Clever.
If anyone is interested in learning how to craft and cultivate an engaging GB then read on, otherwise the wall of text below might be a bit tl;dr for you
What we need is a basic outline of what you want from your GB. Restrictions, time frame, participants.
First, you need to decide on what restrictions, if any, there will be. Here are some considerations: Minimum paint? No restrictions/snap built ok? Decals and panel lines as a minimum? No visible nub marks? Basic mods as a mimimum? (pla plates, rivets, drill holes etc) Recolours only/Stock colours only?
Secondly we need a time frame. Will there be a deadline or is it open ended?
Personally I think that since we have the Grunt GB, the Gauntlet, The ReZEL GB, and the Beargguy GB all still active, and a Delta GB around the corner as well as monthly installments of the grunt GB, that what you need to do is specifically target this GB to those who are really focussed on the MG 00 Raiser. Ask them for their input, what restrictions they want, and what the deadline should be. I think you should also use Gundam Guy's interest in a MG 00 Raiser GB to your full advantage as he will be able to bring a lot of exposure to your GB.
Finally you need your list of particpants. You need to find out who is in and who is out, and add them to your OP along with links to their blogs/WIP's. Will you require them to have a WIP thread at GAF or will it be ok to update their blogs and post a link in the GB topic as they do?
Last of all, the success of your GB is entirely proportionate to the amount of effort, follow up, and follow through YOU put into it. If you make a sloppy thread nobody will join. If you don't post progress nobody will follow. If you don't inspire, motivate, and push your participants nobody will finish. There are exceptions to the rule, like when 4 people have such great synergy that the GB motivates itself to great results, but typically you have to put in the effort to achieve the results.
Busterbeam's Gauntlet is a prime example of an excellent OP and GB Topic. It has the following winning elements:
Very thoroughly thought through conditions and post format.
Visually interesting with clever use of images and text formatting.
He has clearly laid it out. Don't join if you won't finish, so less follow up is required.
Your GB OP does not have to be as epic, but a bit of effort and forethought will go a long way. At the moment it looks as though you were so excited to post it up that you didn't really put the thought in to make in engaging, which shows in that it has gone all day without a reply bar mine. Full marks for those banners though, they are top efforts.
Good luck mate! Get back to me once you've thought it all through and gathered some participants and I will sticky it.
Also if you want to draft up a post for the GA
I will stick it on there and on
Also it wouldn't hurt to throw in a few links and pics to inspire your partcipants in the OP and again as you progress through the GB topic pages.http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/mg-00-look-out-below/http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2011/06/mg-1100-gn-0000-gnr-010-00-raiser_05.htmlhttp://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2011/05/gg-infinite-leds-combo-pre-orders.html
