It is much easier for us to work with each other (and have the great laughs that we have had so far) when we know a bit more about each other. It will also help us all keep track of who is able to do what task/job!

So, if you could post a bit about yourself, and what you know about HTML, wiki, CSS, picture editing, if you can write fluff etc, that would be great.

I'll start. You may wish to use the same template.

Real name: Malcolm
Real life situation: Wife and two gorgeous kids. Have a full time job as a data analyst. I work with SQL and make charts, graphs, reports etc.
BB Background: Been playing on and off since about 1986, have lots of the old 2nd ed sets and 2nd ed miniatures. Run in and played in table top leagues over the years.
HTML Skills: Very basic
wiki Skills: Very basic
CSS: What is that?
Picture Editing: I can crop and resize LOL
Fluff Writing: I can do a bit here and there.

My role with the TNT is to provide direction and harness your great collective energy, skills and ideas. I have a lot of ideas and can conceptualise what I want to see for TNT, but don't have the skills to do the work myself!!! That is where you guys come in, with your skills and ideas and knowledge and we come up with the final product which is a combination of both our ideas and work Very Happy

Anyway, hope more of you will introduce yourselves.

Fluff Writing: I'm a rather good writer, I'm just not very familiar with the BB universe.

EDIT: Oh, right, my role. I'm glad to take on any generic scut work that exists. Cleaning up tables, pounding through ridiculous amounts of SMACK winners, whatever.

Real name: Brian
Real life situation: Single (although some reports say that I am dating a married woman). Student (computer science)
BB Background: Can't remember when I started... A friend intruduced me to it a long time ago (2nd edition). Didn't play much until 3rd edition rules came out. Took a break for a couple of years until I joined fumbbl in 2003.
HTML Skill: Decent (not the best web-designer, but I can probably make everything aslong as I don't have to design it myself first, hehe).
wiki Skills: Basic knowledge. Haven't worked with wiki before this project started.
CSS: same as HTML, haven't used it for quite some time though.
Picture Editing: Basic/poor. Never been the greatest at graphics
Fluff Writing: When I'm in the right mood, I can write so much fluff that it hurts. Unfortunately I'm not in that mood quite often Smile On a regular day, I'm usually able to think of a thing or two to write.

My role... Hmm, that's a tough one. School has just started again, and our workload in programming has been quite heavy so far. That means that my online time has been very limited recently. I am always good at commenting other peoples stuff though Smile

Regards,
Brian, aka Calador

Real name: James
Real life situation: Actor/Writer/Impoverished Person
BB Background: Played since the 3.0 days, had an undefeated Woodie team in a league
HTML Skills: <i>HoTMaiL?</i>
wiki Skills: Who's from New Zealand?
CSS: Another cop show, I expect.
Picture Editing: maybe if I had some software... working with paint is HARD
Fluff Writing: My cup 'o tea, I prefer to write into the BB universe as much as possible, and for me that means the 3.0/3.5 universe - i.e. Warhammer, but skewed. Cabalvision, etc.

I'm a good editor/proofreader/script doctor as well as a writer. If you have a good idea but worry about the execution, I can help you out.

Real name: Captain
Real life situation: Married and living in New Zealand. Working on the children thing... ^_^
BB Background: Started playing with a friend who had old 1st and 2nd ed gear. Kind of didn't pick up on it much even though I liked it back then. My local University Roleplaying club tried a couple of times (relatively unsuccessfully) to get seasons going, then I was introduced to FUMBBL. Been downhill ever since... Razz
HTML Skills: Pretty good.
wiki Skills: If what I've seen so far is the start, then I should be zinging soon.
CSS: Cascading Style Sheets? A bitch to learn to use but very useful in large websites.
Picture Editing: Bring it.
Fluff Writing: See above.

I am a geek and proud of it. My wife is the true picture editing genius, I am picking up a lot of the skills as I play around and she is always able to finish projects when I can't. Spent a long time being forced to program by my father, funny how we aren't on speaking terms any more. So I know a large amount of HTML and can pick up a new languages relatively quickly. I'm not very good at writing my own scripts (when it comes to PHP and Java) but I can find what I need and incorporate it reasonably well. Proofreading and editing is where I am really good. Anyway, now that I've tooted my own horn and bored you all half to death, go about your business citizens.
