Are cadets allowed? I like to do stuff like this. Even if I can't figure out what works, I can figure out what doesn't work. :P

We are planning on being very liberal in terms of who we let in to the group initially. As long as members remain active when writing their guides and are willing to listen to constructive criticism and improve on what they've done, especially if for example taking the strategic advice of someone who far outranks you. :)

And even if you aren't interested in writing a guide, but are still interested in helping others write guides, there are some spots available too. :D

I have sent in a PM and a post offering to help with no response. Does that mean I am not qualified? :shock:

Don't worry, the first group of people will be added soon. I think Nagerous and the other Strategy Guide Leaders, as khazalid mentioned above, will be adding in a big group for this initial launch. And then 1 by 1 as additional users apply down the banana tree road.

I have posted 3 times that I would like to help? I never thought it would be so hard to volunteer help. Can I please get some sort of response. I would accept either of the following responses:

"Sure we would love your help, with your knowledge and expertise you are just the kind of player we are looking for. In fact, you are probably the IDEAL player we are looking for. Please help us"

"Hey stupid kid standing in the corner by himself. We figured you would of gotten the hint from us ignoring you the first three times that your kind is not welcome here. I guess you are too stupid to even pick up on that, so let me make this more clear for you. We don't take people that pick their nose, don't shower, and generally have a clueless looking stare on their faces. In short, we only don't take YOU! Now quit bothering us."

I will not be satisfied unless I get one of these responses. Thanks.

EDIT: I am an idiot. I was added. I was just never notified and I never noticed myself! But I also didn't get the proper response I was looking for!

If you apply, most likely you will be added----and you will notice a special new forum and new category. :D But I'll inform Nagerous to send out a PM next time Contributors get added. :)

Can we collaborate with someone else for a strategy guide on any given map? if so, will it still count towards a medal?

There is only one officially recognized author per Strategy Guide.

A good flurry of activity so far! We are still looking for more people to help construct guides, but also for people who think they've got the strategy know-how to offer critiques, comments, advice, and suggestions during the writing process.

Think you have the strategy know-how? Message nagerous. :D

Update!

We've altered the Medal Ratio to '1 Strategy Guide produced and published = 1 General Contribution Medal'. So get cracking and produce some Strategy Guides to receive one or more General Contribution Medals!

AndyDufresne wrote:To add further incentive, we will also be awarding General Contribution Medals
    For every 1 Strategy Guides produced and published by an author, the author receives 1 General Contribution. So if you produce and publish 4 guides you will earn 4 General Contribution Medals detailing your Strategy Guide Contributions.
Who wouldn't want one or more General Contribution Medals decorating their medal profile? :D
Image

And even if you aren't interested in writing your own guide, you are still welcome to help the development of all the other guides. If we have any outstanding contributors who do not create any guides of their own, we may recognize these contributions as well later in the process. So hope is out there for those Contributors as well!

The Strategy Guide Contributors are happy to announce that the first batch of Official Strategy Guides from the Project have been released.


Many more Strategy Guides are currently in production as well, and a few more are nearing completion.

Remember, if you'd like to join this project, help contribute your strategy or write a guide of your own, please contact one of our Strategy Guide Leaders: Master Fenrir, Lindax, Laughingcavalier, nagerous, ljex. Maybe you can earn yourself a General Contribution Medal!

Thanks to all those who have contributed their hard work so far---and may it continue!
