  1. Okay cool.

    Although for the moment we've got a lot of staff at the moment, we're also pretty busy since we're getting close to release date, but after we send out the first issue i'm gonna have a review of all the staff, get rid of the ones who aren't contributing and take on board some (hopefully) more dedicated people, so I will bear you in mind then.

    Thanks for showing your support and you'll probably hear from me after the first issue has been released.

    cheers.
    Garg.

  2. To all those who said death by sex, yes pleasurable but not gonna look good at your funeral when you're buried with your sex face ^_^

    I wanna go out in a blaze of Glory, maybe take a few spectators down too in a firey furnace of twisted metal or something like that.

    Either that or being strangled by one of my own guitar strings, that way I can accurately impersonate the noise my guitar makes when I play it :P

    Perhaps I've put too much thought into this >.<

    Oh well.

  3. YAY :D

    Thanks Guys....

    *Squeezes in the thanks in the last 15 minutes (Here anyway) of my Birthday*

    Good news:

    I've not died for another year!
    Happy non death to me.

    Thanks all
    :D

    hmm.....If my birthday went unnoticed...that means i'm a better spy than even I thought!

    lols.

    Cheers everyone.

  4. By the sounds of it burns (And I am by no means an expert) it sounds like your name is close to the english name 'Bernard' (Often shortened to Bernie, which sounds like your shortened form)

    but burns sounds much better ^_^

    Just thought you'd like to know ^_^

  5. Okay.....I'm bored.

    But this is something I thought people might find interesting, I know I would.

    There are some very strange character names out there and it makes me wonder how people come up with their names.

    Mine for example is a large transport beast from Final Fantasy 9, I used the name as an email years ago and it kinda stuck.

    I use it on lots of things so if you see a Gargant it might be me :D

    Where do others get their names from?

    Cheers.
    Garg.

  6. Marka: That's great.

    Jester: We'd love to have you on board if you feel you can put the time to the project.

    It's your call.

    Marka, i've put you on the heads contest report. Jester if you DO decide you can put time and effort into the project then you can edit/proofread Marka's work and i'll put you in the same dept.

    Glaistig: really. Grido began convulsing and...

    Garg: Which, unbeknown to Grido was in actuality full of...

  9. No We can't move this to the closed forums because the link on the Signpost in Marble dale park links to this forum and so does the link in the announcement that calyx is gonna make.

    This is kinda the precursor to the closed forums where new staff can state their interest. I can change the link on the Signpost, but the announcement can only change before calyx makes it so we'd have to move fast if we went down that route.

    Also can current staff (mainly the writers) make a note of who their editors/proofreaders are so that i'm not getting inundated with stories that need editing.

    Remember the process is writers pass to editors/proofreaders, they pass it on to Glai who makes any final edits and I will make the final layout decisions and O.K. the final content of the paper.

    Please don't forget to regularly check this post as well as the closed forums, after we get a complete staffbase then I will move all this over to the closed ones, but while we're trying to get staff this topic needs to stay open.

    Thanks
    Garg.

  10. Okay sorry i've kinda been away from this topic for a while. I've been caught up with the new forum (Sorry, Shiny things do that to me)

    To Antram: Of course you can participate, this list is by no means final like Grido says.
    To apophys: Okay i'll tell crazymike to pass his work on to you for editing.
    To Glai: I'm not sure we really need the calendar events section, but if you want to take up the RPC quest column then that'll be great. We can include it as part of the Puzzle page.

    Apoph and Antram, i'll add you to the new forums (or at least Chewett will :rolleyes:)

    Garg.

  11. MRWander: Send my minions after you to....
    Death Ring: make you sell bunny outfits while wearing one yourself.''
    Grido: But of course none of this was actually said, it's just a picture after all (at this point the writer starts looking nervous)...
    Metal Bunny: (with good reason), 'ah yes, just a picture, no need to be afraid of the.. 'INQUISITOR-UNDER-MY-BED'!!! Oh horror of horrors that...'
    MRWander:flash through my mind of the inquisitor, his eyeball and......
    Garg: All that nasty nasty probing! DON'T LET HIM NEAR ME! But then, at that precise moment....

  12. okay partially to keep the topic alive, and partially to make it easier for new members to find what we need.

    Bold topics still need staff, underlined ones are fully staffed, when choosing an area to work in please select from bold categories only.

    What we REALLY need now is:

    People to compile Puzzles for the puzzle page
    Someone to compile the RPC quest list
    Somebody to write the historical section about older aspects of the game.

    On top of this can people already involved in the project please look for the new forum under the university section after you log in.

    If you are part of the project and are unable to see it please send me a forum message, PM or YIM message and i'll add you to the list.

    Thanks
    Garg.

    Cryxus: thoughts, and fears. I could see that...
    Grido: he was my brother...

    Grido: I killed them all yet here he is before me...
    Metal Bunny: standing before me in a clown's uniform with...
    Grido: a picture of a metal bunny wearing a pink ribbon and braids hanging on the wall...
    Metal Bunny: but coincidentally also has a picture of a rainbow in his hands, with pink lettering stating...
    Grido: All Hail The Lord Of Bunnies! All Hail The Bunny Empire!
    Metal Bunny: The clown then picks up his pink scythe and accidentally hits...
    Lightsage: MB's fluffy tail of the picture and you can almost hear the picture saying...
    Gargant: I'm going to get you for that, watch out or i'll...

  14. Glai, I've noticed that we balance each other out too. It's a good thing. You're freakishly organised, I'm freakishly motivated, between us we get things done ^_^

    "How we do it over in my school: single-spaced, no indent, one space between sentences, one hard enter between paragraphs. And, it's nice to have a header with the author, issue, type of item, word count, and slugger for reference."

    I'm liking this formatting, apart from the header with the author. don't papers put the authors at the end of the piece? I thought they said something like 'words by such a person'. (Don't quote me on that. I'll have to find a newspaper and have a look how they do things, I think it'd be nice if it looks as authentic as possible).

    Garg.

  15. To chewett: Thanks again for setting up the new section

    To Bootes: Glai said that she was gonna talk to you about that, when I made the list I assumed this contact had been made, but thanks for your support nonetheless.

    To [s]Glai[/s] The orgnaiser freak: A list of team members with contact info would be useful, we'll put that up when we get our new forum going.

    Sending everything in .doc would be preferred (By me at least) if anyone has a problem with this, speak now!

    Formatting: In columns, Justified formatting, 4 columns per page.

    Our own website Glai? Organised sections Glai? Geez! That is a level of organisation I cannot even begin to comprehend.

    Garg.

  16. Okay Here's my thinking.

    Grido, I'll take you off the RPC interviews section as Kouros can do that, and i'll put you on Inno's special interest stories, Logan's Q&A Section and Firs's take on the news.

    Is that too much cos i don't wanna overload people.

    Hmm, with regards to the reception of articles, E-mail would be the obvious way, but You can also do filesharing over PM's using storenow, just click on the link there and make a note of the number it gives you when you upload the document.

    Glai I think might be best, if you act as a final proofreader.

    So the writers hand the stories up to their respective editors.
    Editors pass it on to proofreader
    Proofreaders pass it on to Glai for final checking.
    Glai passes all stories on to me.

    That kind of arrangement?
    Seems to work from an organisational ppoint of view.
    Whether it'll work in practice remains to be seen.

    Garg.
