No problem :) I'll add you to list :) Check out this list of common mistakes cause it should be equally applicable to TBP
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

Thanks for the list :) I already noticed one or two mistakes I do every time and then wonder what went wrong. Anyways I'll start working on it now. Can't give any deadline right now though. But I try to get something up after a week or so.

If you remember, Karajorma, I said I was interested FREDding the B5 demo campaign but I told the FRED2_Open 3.5.6. don't work on my PC. But! I tried it today and noticed that if I click the error messages off I can use it. Although I can't see the ship models or ship info.

So.. I'd like to join and FRED the B5 campaign mission 2. Ok? :)

And I'll release C1M7 v6 soon. Tonight or tomorrow. :)

c2m9 is going slowly but surely.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities.

I was thinking using these wing names for Narn:
Val'Drog
Du'V
T'Bok
Li'Rok
Ja'Far

And for Centauri:
Rego
Valo
Torr
Callo
Varia

Is this ok or does somebody have a better idea? :)

[EDIT] I also have two B5 system maps. Not sure how canon they are, though...

Do you see a blue-ish rectangle at the bottom left of your screen?  If yes, double-click on it.  It should turn into a realy small display grid, the same size as the previous blue rectangle.  It this happens, minimize then maximize FRED, and you should have the full grid back and everything.

No.

When I start FRED2, the grid window is minimized, I double click the grid window's bar which is located at the top left of my screen. Then I minimize and maximize FRED and I can see the whole thing.

The problem is that I can't see the graphics right. I don't care about ship models as I use outlines, but the ship info, grid position and distance are FUBARed. It's making the job a bit harder, but not impossible.

Well, I'd make a mission but the best I've done with FRED is get a fighter to try to blow me up.

C3M9A looks like something I could do.

Can I grab C3M8A, too? 9A's mostly finished and I see not many people are writing for C3.

I prefer to make sure that people only take on one mission at a time (unless one mission is near completion and it's getting me to test that is the bottleneck).

I'm afraid that C3M9A is nowhere near completion yet. I'm posting a full report on it in a bit.

If it took you 2 days to test, it must have been bad. :(

 
If it was bad, it wouldn't take longer to test, since the problems would be easier to spot. ;)
