November
Perhaps the surprise inclusion from November's work was "Reconstruction of a Railway" with some major work being carried at Evesham station to lengthen the platforms.   Rather than include them in "Worcestershire", I decided that the work could be recorded in "Reconstruction.." as I felt that the work represented a significant change to the railway.   I intended to return and photograph the station again once the work is completed. 
 
I didn't manage to get very far afield with the November photography; the first two weekends were rather wet and the final one somewhat overcast.   As a result the photography was confined to the Sunday of the third weekend, but this did produce some good "Autumn" images.   The way things eventually worked out meant that even if I hadn't already decided to drop my planned visit to the West Midland Safari Park, the weather would probably forced me to cancel it anyway.
 
I did manage to convert 7 collections to HTML 5 during the month, including - somewhat significantly - "Worcestershire" and "Night Photography", both of which contained 35mm images that I wanted to keep on the site.   In both cases I did succeed in this; the photographs in "Night Photography" had been archived at a resolution high enough for conversion, and I was able to locate and re-scan the photograph of Evesham Midland Railway station pre-paint job at a higher resolution for inclusion (In fact, I ended up using a different photograph from the session as I felt it was better).  I also converted "Warwickshire" which meant that the "Landscape and Architecture" gallery became the first gallery to have all its collections reformatted. 
 
As of the end of the month 60 of the 117 collections on this site are in HTML 5 format.  I had aimed for an average of 1 collection converted per week when I started the project at the end of January 2018, and I am thus on track to complete the conversion by the end of 2019. 
 
November to February 2019
I intend to dial back on the photograph for the next few months in order to concentrate on the site rebuild, as I intend to have the top levels converted to HTML5  for the 1st March 2019.  My plans for December mainly revolve around converting the largest collection on this site : "Wartime in the Vale 2015", but I do hope to slot a visit to the Severn Valley Railway post-Christmas, and it's not beyond the bounds of possibility that some heritage properties may get a look in. 
 
Once I have converted "Wartime..2015", I then intend to start work on the top level of the site, with the view - as previously mentioned - of sending it live on or before the 1st March, 2019.   At this point a lot of the event collections will be taken off-line (see below).
 
Event Collections
With regards to the ongoing HTML5 conversion, I have been giving the matter of which event collections to convert and which could probably be discarded.  A lot of the event collections contain 100 photographs or more and converting these is time-consuming.   Add to that the fact that I am constantly adding new events is likely to result in the gallery becoming somewhat bloated, so I am currently considering the following procedures to implement over the next few months:
Also, from October 2018, I will cease to add new collection links to the existing mobile gallery indexes as I feel that it is no longer worth the effort for something that I intend to scrap shortly.  I don't expect to be adding many new collections in the remainder of 2018 anyway. 
 
Mousemats and Mugs
I have decided that I probably won't be restoring the custom mousemats to this site any time soon, as I have concerns about the products as a whole which might be cause for complaint.   However, I have not any issues so far with the custom mugs I have ordered and these may well be restored when the gallery indexes are changed to HTML5 and if I can get some prototypes made.
