That sounds like fun, and would allow us to get to know each other's style, to some event. I just completed a joint contact, and the only challenge I faced was keeping track of my word count. I am more than willing to jump in, and would be willing to provide whatever support is needed. I have 2 jumpships, and a number of different dropships, aerospace fighters, and many different companies, modeled after various House militaries. I can play the role in any of these modes, depending on the mission chosen. I also have a new hire, and I am sure he would be more than willing to flesh out his new company, if that is a direction we would like to follow.

Yup, that was my main intention of suggesting this. Would be great for us all to be familiar with how each of us write and plan.

I've attached an excel spreadsheet that I use for the Black Stars that you might want to have a look see. We can use this for a start and modify accordingly as we move along.

I'm totally open to how each of us contribute. Heck, we can even start off supporting different factions, or approach this contract from different angles before we finally come together - or not if we so wish it.

I think this approach would help us get back into writing again for the site, and keep everyone engaged if some or most of us currently active are writing on the same contract. And if some or most of us will be writing against the same contract, then we can call contribute to creating that contract and setting it up neatly on the threads.

Do be reminded that we don't actually have to take up the New Mars contract. Given the current situation BTM is in, we can always come up with a contract ourselves...

That is true. We just need to work an outline, and see what comes together. This will allow us to increase the scope to properly challenge the players involved, so they are on their "A" game.

Since I've been given BTM admin access, I can draw up a contract for all of us to write against.

Mcraven, DNA, myself (and JCSATL?) are working on the New Mars contract.
I've seen ArcticFreeze and Drakno log on recently. Just wanted if anyone else is joining us on our little adventure.
ALSO, just wondering, should we back up everything and move things over to CBT given that we have no idea when the BTM forum and website might just shut down without warning...

So many questions.... :?

Backing up everything is a good idea for sure and we could get it up and running on CBT just in case and fix any bugs before we have to jump.

I am also a fan of backing up data. The BTP has always used Yahoo Groups, but they have recently changed their accessibility. So, let me know what the consensus is, and I will join with you.
