Had a stroke of clarity today and came up with a decent name that I can see being used for a while. Within the next 72 hours, https://ultrararedrop.com will available to access this site. I’ll be “rebranding” over the next couple of days and updating images, styles, and other items of importance.
Starting after April 15th, mrhorsegaming.blog will no longer be used as a means of accessing this blog.
Now, I’m getting to work on setting stuff up.
Starting today, we’ll be available at the domain https://mrhorsegaming.blog as well as the previous domain https://mrhorsegaming.wordpress.com. If the new domain isn’t working when you try it, you can still use the old domain. It takes up to 72 hours for the changes to be complete, so while it may be working now, it might not for a few hours. Hopefully there won’t be any problems, but that remains to be seen.
Also new today, advertisements. As I’m trying to monetize the site a little bit to pay for itself, this could change depending on feedback and site hits over the next few weeks (to months.) Currently, it’s set to display ads for everyone but it’s likely that it’ll be changed to only display to guests or non-Wordpress.com visitors. If you own a WordPress.com account, you’ll be able to sign-in and view the content without ads.
I’ll be making some changes to the site for a while, while I attempt to set this blog and it’s content apart. So you may see major theme changes, CSS revisions, and who knows what else. In the meantime, feel free to browse as normally as possible. If you’d like to directly donate to help fund MHG, the link is on the About MHG page.

Made some changes to the navigation menu, mostly due to the presence of a game that I no longer play or even keep up with. After the drama around Elysium the last few months, I decided to keep my distance and stop playing. Never a good sign when a dev team lies to their community, much less how some of the staff were operating. I won’t go into details, because I’m not covering that issue.
What I am writing this post for, is to give you a heads up that the Elysium Project category will be turned into an archive, and those posts will no longer be official content of MHG. As a result, I started recording some gameplay from Elite Dangerous last night, mostly just doing some exploration. For the time being, the locations that I discover will be cataloged until I put together a decent video. It’s nothing special, but it will become a main part of this blog and the content. I plan on doing write ups on what to look for when exploring, as well as how I got started and the initial mistakes I made in the early days. (The first 20 hours of this game is brutal.)
Stay tuned, as I try to pump out some quick exploration videos and get a little montage going to upload.
Hey everyone! A quick disclaimer for the ever changing theme and layouts. Hopefully, it’s not too distracting. I keep looking for a better theme that fits what I want this blog to become. I’ve been through 5 themes in the last 3 days, just trying out what kind of layouts I enjoy.
The previous one was a step in the right direction and might be the final choice, but I wanted to see how the full page, modern blog style looked and felt for the blog. It’s slightly darker than I want on the front page, but the actual article pages look great.
Time will tell, but I believe I’ve narrowed it down to either the previous theme, or the currently active theme. Giving it a couple of days to see what I think about it before making a decision. (And this time, the change will be final for a while. Probably for good. Who knows?)
Thanks, and hopefully you’ll keep coming back while I keep changing up the theme on you… Gotta find that perfect one!
