Wanted; Members for 'The Mod Squad'

OK. My first job as Mod Squad captain is to, well, assemble a Mod Squad.

If you're willing to help the growth of our newly formed team, put your name down here. Please note that there will be a limit on the size of the squad, and I will select members on the basis of how active they are on the forums, how helpful and friendly they are to others, and their modding ability. Please only put your name down if you have the time, interest and are willing to put in a lot of extra hours for the squad.

If you feel you want to be part of the squad, please put your name down, as well as why you want to be part of it. Modding ability should also be added as well, because it is nice to have some modders on a modding team. =)

Raphael.....out.

OK.

So far, I'm willing to recruit the following people;

- Favu
- Captain
- QSDT

Danrok, you didn't express whether you want to be in the squad or nay. Would you like to be a part of the team?

I'm actually quite good with a tig and a cutting torch...that help?

Havent developed a steady hand with a dremmel yet, but I'm quite inventive (when its necessary) My only problem is I need to buy a digi cam. But I get paid tommorrow, so that could be a very real possibility. I'm trying to think of what else I'm good at (modding wise)

I think posting logs of your work w/pc's is a good place to start...and seeing how it's the MOD squad, the more you mod from the norm, the better.

The sort of stuff we find here:

This is good timing for the chop shop as I will soon start making a new reservoir full alloy passive cooled, and then I'm going to mod an old AT server case to take all the new stuff out there. So any ideas will be haled with many thanks.

Im up for mods. I could mod video cards as well. Not high end ones like cadaveca, because I dont have that much cash behind me. But other ones, certainly. And just general case mods.

I have access to a digi camera too.

So, we have both Rondog and Cadaveca on video card mods. Unfortunately, we only require ONE team member in this area, at the moment, so I'll need to select one of you two to work in the 'video card' area.

Also, since I can only have 6 members in the team (at the moment), there are only 3 places left. If no-one else is willing to be a part of the team, then I will recruit more people in a specific area, like video cards, for example.

My fault, I should have set a few guidelines. We pretty much try to accommodate any member who wishes to participate in our team efforts.

It's the very nature of online life that it is a secondary pursuit at best for even the more dedicated. People come and go, that's just the way it is.

This being so we gather as many troops at the start of an interprize as we can and add where we can as we go. This not only creates a broader participation and interest in a project, but moves it along towards completion.

Those who have more time will do more, those with less will do what they can, we do well to appreceate both contributions.

So if you have an interest I'm sure raphael2040 can make a bit of room for you, this is cyber space after all, shouldn't be to crowed.":O}
