    Default Our Next Steps: The Plan

    Alright guys, it's time to move out of the rut and onwards with this project, and I've got a couple of ideas to try out here. Everyone who has been lurking, or who hasn't been sure of where to help out, or anything, this is your chance.

    You all will lead the project, with me, if you're interested. Here's what I mean:

    We'll split the work that needs to be done into several project groups. Everyone can be on as many project groups as they like, and can up lead any reasonable amount. For instance, my big project for the next while will be the pokemon.txt file. But there are other projects to cover, such as:

    - Konrad specialist (we need someone to find and get into contact with Konrad on a regular basis, so that we have an actual chain of communication) / Programmer position
    - Overworld sprites
    - Maps
    - Revamps
    - Item sprites
    - Review (reviewing what we've done so far and figuring out what is outdated and what is worth revamping, such as the website and movesets)
    - Advertising
    - Community
    - Anything you can think of!

    A leader for a project group assumes control over every aspect of that project, and is allowed to manage it however they want. ANYONE can be a leader. I don't care if you saw this as a guest and just signed up to be a leader, if you want to lead, you're allowed. I cannot veto anything you do, unless a clear majority is against you, and the necessary quality is up to you to decide (or, if you're like me, you can let the community decide). If multiple people want to lead the same project, they collaborate, and if one person is clearly pulling the most weight, then it'll be obvious who the actual leader is.

    The other part is signing up for groups. As usual in Topaz, commitment is not mandatory (or it might be, depending on how the leader wishes), this is just a way for you to declare your interest so that we know where to direct newer people when they come and ask for things to do. You can sign up for as many groups as you like.


    All you veteran members out there, please please please try to participate in this. Even as a leader your job is just to move things along, it's not as big of a commitment as you think. If you're worried about time, take a small project. If this falls to the ground, I'm going to have to just start doing things and making changes without consulting anyone, since it'd be obvious the community doesn't care.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Sorry, couldn't help it. I'm going to commit this time to making audio and such. And even if I get only one Pokemon cry done, hey, it's still one less cry to do, right?

    Also am interested in working on pokemon.txt! And does Konrad have an MSN address?

    I'm in an introduction to programming course, so hopefully that will help me learn Ruby. I've tried to learn it earlier, but I kept getting distracted. I'm reeeeeally sorry about how I haven't been doing much, and about how I said I would learn Ruby over the summer, but didn't.

    Anyways, once I complete the course, I'm going to take a crack at learning Ruby. Again. Hopefully that time I will be less distracted.

    Even though it isn't listed as a project, I'll still be doing the script production.

    I also pretty much run revamps right now anyway, so I'll pick that one up as well.

    I'm sure I can work on a few maps... I'll just get out advance map and edit ruby... that's all I can do. I'm pretty good though so I'll give it a shot.
    Wait... Wut?

    Script Production will be listed on the topic in General Topaz. Still nice for some confirmation!

    Sounds great, Eve!

    I could perhaps handle the Revamp duties (as in canon pokemon revamps, that's what that means, right?). I can't say for sure what my available time will be like as I'm starting college next week, but I can try to get a few going each week depending on my schedule.

    Html and an opinion. That's all I got along with some dreadful spriting techniques.
    EDIT: For once I wish I didn't have to proofread all of my posts just to correct errors my keyboard made. -.-

    That's totally fine by me

    You might want to try helping out a few other groups too, just to see if you can do it.

    I believe that link tags vary by forum, so you'll have to use something different for each forum.

    Our forums use something like this:

    PHP Code:

    Sorry I haven't been around; been busy. I'll be in charge of putting the game together. Once pokemon.txt is finished, sent it to me.

    Please, just mention the site. Showing sprites is sure to lead to theft.

    Well I'm back from both figurative death and computer death, computer death meaning I'll need to get my plugins back but I can easily do a sort of game corner theme now. XD

    Let's see...

    I can help with the sprites, both item and overworld, and I suppose I could do some reviewing and editing as well. Basically, anything involving either artwork or words not in a programming language.

    - Anything you can think of!
    I'll would add concept art to the list except that concept art is a very individual project since there's no actual goal we're aiming towards. If you want to start a project to get each Pokemon concept art then I'll add it but until then you can just do concept art as you like.

    Advertising is for obvious reasons mostly off-site. The project group is:

    Advertising
    Leader - silver
    Participants:
    Reliability (Facebook rep)

    So contact silver to see if he has any plans and Reliability if you want to help maintain the Topaz Facebook page in some way.

    Item sprites are here if you'd like to help out.

    some,
    none of which tolerate salespeople surveys, like chatot in PMD.
    so... I'm guessing pokecommunity out of the question anyway,

    I'd like to try and help out with the programming. I've been lurking around long enough.
    Who should I get in touch with ? Where should I start ?
