Forum Moderator and passoff
Well its kinda come down to some possibilities for this project.
First off, Styxx has been inactive for some time, I was wondering if anyone else has talked to or communicated somehow with him, if hes off the project yada yada. secondly if no one has communicated with him, should or even can we replace him as a mod?
also i have noticed some of the original team seems to be lacking in the department of givin a damn(as far as forum attitude goes) If they gave up, is there any possibility of getting whats done(mission outlines, missions, models ect.), someone else can pick up the baton and go you know, its not like the end of the world!

No, well Styxx is only one who can decide things like that and since he haven't been around for a while

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
And no the team isn't on "I don't give a damn mode"... we're just very busy people, who have jobs\uni\whatever...

Although If I may say so, for someone who seems to claim to "give a damn", I haven't seen YOU doing anything in the last years to change the state of this project, except complain and moan...
Yeah we know, you don't know how to model\texture\FRED\whatever... guess what that was never an excuse, because it isn't that hard to learn any of those.
TBH it tickles me that for all this years I see people asking us to get stuff done, and yet they do nothing themselves to get things done.

That said, I don't agree on Gloriano's opinion.
Styxx has just disapeared of the radar... he doesn't even show up on MSN for a long time (which is strange). Heck he might even be dead (exagerating, and of course I hope not) for all we know.
Given that its up to the rest of the crew to decide what to do next. Not the forum moderators, not the fans, not anyone else. We are aware of all the options, so don't worry.
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

IMO, unless some miracle worker comes around and gives everyone tons of motivation and reorganizes the project, MT is in hibernation.

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
Could I help the MT Project out? I mean, I've been in HLP for about 4/5's of a year but I haven't really contributed much, so I could I start here?
Not really great at anything apart from FREDding, but hey, I'm still learning.
So I'd be happy to join, if you want me.

You had better go start somewhere else like NTV because right now we don't need more staff. NTV does though...

What do you mean?

If MT doesn't need more staff how do you intend to replace the inactive members? New and motivated members can help.

MT hired several "new motivated members" in the past 2 years. The only ones who have really done any more than a modicum of work for the project was DarkShadow-. The rest of the many people hired in the past two years, me included, have done barely 1 or 2 missions for the project. New members is not what we need at this point.

It doesn't mean new members aren't going to succeed where you and the other "motivated members who joined in the past 2 years" failed.

With many members in MIA status and no need to recruit, what are you going to do?

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
eliex, despite what Snail has claimed, I'm sure your help will be much apreciated :)

Please send a sample mission or two to Spicious, Mobius or DarkShadow so we can just evaluate what you can do, and know how much we should expect :)

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
Why would he send me a sample mission for MT?

I'd suggest you guys to reform the modpack and remove all alternate, unused and useless versions of the stuff you already have. In order to do this contact the team member that surely has all the stuff saved on his PC...

So you can evaluate it scripting wise... I don't do it myself because, well, I don't know **** about fredding :P

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
It's not a matter of FREDding...it's a matter of picking up a member of the team who has the latest versions of the files. That'll prevent vital and recent files from being overwritten by old ones in your effort to recreate the modpack. :)

Re: Forum Moderator and passoff
Oh that... I was talking about Eliex's sample mission, which won't be tied to MT obviously :P

As for the rest, I'll resume the conversation in the internal

Well, thanks for the chance. I try and get one or two missions done, and I'll pm it over to you, Mobius, if you would like to test it.
Check for my samples on Saturday, please . . .
