I think perhaps one of the most exciting times around Mi6 was the uncertainty of "who will be Bond #6?!" And ultimately the unveiling of Daniel Craig was a highlight...
The first 17 were done from 2008 to early 2010 with three others drip fed since then but now, nothing?! Why was that?
Here's when they were released:
25th March 2008: 6
29th April 2008: 2
15th July 2008: 8
10th August 2008: 21
15th September 2008: 12
14th December 2008: 22
16th January 2009: 15
9th February 2009: 4
16th March 2009: 3
19th May 2009: 19
30th June 2009: 11
17th July 2009: 7
4th August 2009: 17
11th September 2009: 13
18th October 2009: 1
11th February 2010: 9
23rd March 2010: 20
27th November 2010: 16
6th January 2011: 18
14th December 2011: 14
Something else are the film banners. I'd love to see them completed. I mentioned them here.
OK so my favourites are - Deep Breath:
The new James Bond Jr. section. Yet again expanding into Bond and Beyond.
Spies & Spoofs is again great and it was nice to see this one revived a few months ago.
Time Tunnel provides a look into the past. Most of the recent articles on say Moonraker such as this one, should be in that section, right? Either way, I love the Time Tunnel.
The six year Bond break is documented here and I'd love more depth to it.
Bond 17 is a good read. Anything else along those lines, like what was done for the Tomorrow Never Dies that never was in '07 would be a good addition.
You've traced The Legacy of Goldfinger, Live And Let Die, Octopussy, A View To A Kill and The Living Daylights. Are there any more that warrant being done?
Having more and the deleted(?) Premiere and Press sections back would be welcomed. I spotted this some time ago as mentioned here.

Some links such as 'Tomorrow Never Dies Mistakes' are articles posted on a certain day listing the mistakes found at the time - there's also a Moonraker one. These may just need to be checked against the more recent official 'Mistakes' page for that film to check everything is there for example, while others like 'The Other 00-Agents' and 'The World Of James Bond' are too good not to be read and bumped back up to the top of the queue. Some though, The Name's... Bond?, Foreign Offices, PTS, The Many Faces of Felix Leiter, James Bond`s Watches ect. need a 2012 update.
Yes, we had some fun, but you're a little late :-|
We stand at 2,998 right now.
There's about 15 to do I think. An awful lot. Quite a task and undertaking.
EDIT: OK, the following have been done:
From Russia With Love
The Man With The Golden Gun
For Your Eyes Only
The World Is Not Enough - odd colour choice. Olive green, not blue.
Die Another Day
that is completely up to you though
Your work very good though so I hope MI6 put you to work in some way @haserot.
Yes, my pleasure and the links are all there, too. I'll enjoy going through this little lot.
Will you be looking through the "nominations to create a shortlist that will be published on the website, and any older articles will be given a spring clean and/or updated with fresh facts for the occasion" this time?
It would be great also if this down time could be used to complete the missing villain and Bond girl articles. There are not many but it would be nice to see them done. After that there are plenty of gadgets to do.
