How about submissions like articles are done for the front page.

Say I am planning a mod and tell you that this is what I am going to do. After completion, it gets submitted to you or Giz or whoever. Then it is put in article form. A how to if you will.

You can also get a list of mods that we would like to see. Windows, water cooling, painting and so on. Then ask for members that would like to perform these mods as well as write up a work log. Then submit as before.

Just a thought.....

Do you think it would be a good idea for all modders to take down my email address/MSN?

So it'll be easier to get into contact with many of them, and I could help them through a certain mod and help them with the write up, etc?

Just an opinion, I would utilize the forum. PM and threads should serve fine.

I don not think it would hurt to use email. You could send pics and such with out others seeing them until it's ready.

God, this stuff is so confusing. I don't think I can call myself the Mod Captain anymore, since it seems I can't manage to do anything! =(

I think my main priority at this moment in time is the actual structure of the Mod Squad. If I can quote my first post in this thread;

At the moment, the squad consists of the following;

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

I'd appreciate it if the above people could post here, just to let me know that they are still willing to be a part of the squad.

Now, as for the team itself, there's gonna be a few changes. -clears throat-

Firstly, at least one project will be completed bi-weekly. This project must be done as a team, unless someone within the team has a mod to show off or something, in which case, we'll clean up the mod so it's frontpage-able.

Perhaps it's time for a revisal of the team? Unless all team members contact me and let me know that they would still like to be in the team, I -may- end up switching some people around.

The whole point of the squad was not so they were the only ones who could do mods. No, it was to get some of the best modders on AOA to write up guides, how to's, hints and tips, etc, as well as mods. Other AOA members could contribute to the Mod Squad's efforts, too, by simply posting a mod in the Chop Shop section. If the Mod Squad think it's well written and well done, it will get the Mod Squad Stamp Of Approval (MSSOA).

As for bi-weekly projects, I'm going to have to contact all current Mod Squad members and see if we can conjure up a list of guides and mods we will be doing over the next few weeks. This list will be posted in a thread and updated when guides/mods have been completed and when new ones have been decided. If all goes to plan, this means we'll be having at least one Mod or Guide every fortnight.

As for the actual members; If you're a member of the Mod Squad currently, please, please, please PM me. I really don't want to have to remove your name from the list, because it'll make me feel bad and make me look like an evil person. =(

There are several people on AOA who I would like to add to the Mod Squad, too. I'm gonna send them a PM and let them know of my interests.



But that's basically it. Again, I'd appreciate any and all input from staff and regular members here.

I know it seems like I keep repeating myself in these posts, but I guess it has to be done until I can manage to put together a reasonable structure.

Thanks in advance, guys.

Tetsuo/Raphael.

Hey Raphael, don't be so hard on yourself. This is a big undertaking. Take it a step at a time. Figure out what the strong points of you team are. Then go from there. You are doing fine and I am sure you will get the ball rolling.

Thanks, Sam.

What I need is members who are going to contribute to projects, bi-weekly. I need to get some active members without having to remove my current ones, because, as I said, it seems both unfair and pretty damn mean. =(

Any ideas?

Getting in communication with you team would be a priority. Find out how much time they can commit. Find out what they are interested in doing.

Maybe highlighting other mods from the www would be a good thing. At least as part of your section and it might help get the momentum going. The web is huge and there are plenty of mods out there.

Again get you team talking with you to start.

I'll do that right away.

Thanks a lot, Sam! You've been a great help. I'll be sure to post here again after I get responses.

Thanks again, man, you're a star!

Heyhey I reckon I could do around a mod ever two weeks. I'm pretty interested in stuff that can be done for cheap (mostly because I don't have a lot of money to be spending) But I am definatly willing to put a bit of effort into this

Right.

So we have Me and Favu willing to do some mods.

And between us, we're already kinda creating a list of mods we would like to be completed. =)

Speaking of which, I should post that up.
