Well, the way I was going to do it Daniel, was to have a team of 6 or 7 to be the main people behind articles, project presentations, guides, and all that fun stuff. I don't mind having loads of other members, so long as they are willing to contribute something. After all, one of the main reasons we created the squad was to help newbie modders, ne? =D

But, assistance is always helpful, 'specially from you, Daniel-san. Also, cyber space has a capacity of 200 people. >.>;;

Yes, Aidan, the admins will end up with a lot more work =D

xmetrix, what kind of mods have you done? Care to show some of your work? Also, would you be willing to be an active member in the mod squad, and take an active part in projects and stuff?

OK. Later on tonight (GMT), I'm going to select the final members for the mod squad. Please remember that anybody can participate/help, but the group that I select will be in charge of projects, setting up new things, etc.

Also, no hard feelings if you're not selected. =D.

I need a master. I am an apprentice! Who will teach me the wise ways of computer modding?

I.E Give me your Dremel you bum.
Perhaps, there should be a tier system.

After much consideration, I have selected the final members of the Mod Squad.

It shall be as follows;

Raphael - Captain
Favu - Vice Captain
Cap'n Curran - Vice Captain
Pitch
Cadaveca
MONKEYMAN
Rondog

These members will work together to create new projects, guides, how to's, etc. They will also have a 'meeting' as it were on a weekly basis, and present some form of work weekly, or bi-weekly.

It was a tough decision selecting these members, and I want to send my apologies to those who haven't been chosen. I trust my team to be the best they can be, and work to the best of their ability. =)

Raphael out.

PS: Please note that member contribution is always welcome. So, if you have a guide or something, PM me with it, and we'll use it (if it's good enough). Oh, we'll credit it to you, of course. =D
