ITOP will be a list of PD.com spags who are willing to help with projects.  If you need someone else to help you with something, don't just wait for somebody to do something, conscript someone from here.  (Remember, they VOLUNTEERED to be conscripted!)

I'll try to keep this OP up to date; if I fail, somebody Cain remake this thread and edit it more.

My only area of expertise, as it were, is LOADS of free time.

My only project is keeping up the pretense that I know what I'm doing.

I am "new here" and thus not on any of anybody's lists.

Nonetheless!

current projects:  For this site, none.  Elsewhere, probably too many to list.
areas of specialty: writing/editing, sophistry, pedantry, "Web Programming", Web Design, spelling (much under-rated), fuzzy logic and circular thinking

Expertise: I cook pretty well.  I have a fast internet connection, willing to DL/UL whatever.  I can do a lot of algebra, learning more.  I work at a game store, pulling a 30% discount.  I paint models pretty well.  I'm usually good for a laff.  I know a lot about people and society, given I don't have to put it into practice just yet.  I know some other science and technology stuff, too miscellaneous and undeveloped to really call a skill.

Areas of speciality

Knowledge: philosophy, politics
Public Relations (I am a people person)

Logistics/organizing/overseeing other projects.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

This used to be me!  Except my warhammer figs have crappy paint jobs because I have the artistry of a dead fig.

I grew up painting WH40K figs, and generally had the best painted army in the store at any given time.  I'm not proud, just obsessed.

Areas of Expertise: generating text, some layout, and the "big picture". I'm a big picture guy, but I'm also a details guy. I do wiki code. I have a nose for Quality. I am highly interested and somewhat well read in memetics. I love pranks and mindfucks. I am BAD at finishing projects, or continuing them after other people have lost interest. (citation: the Adam Weishaupt Society). OH and I just got a video camera, but so far I suck with it.

Current Projects: Lollercaust, maintaining the Black Iron Prison Wiki, and masterminding project OMGASM (and all the sub GASMs).

Current Projects: At the moment, I'm attempting to translate the PD into Spanish (I'm no native speaker, so it's pretty rough at best)

Expertise: Minor knowledge of linguistics, minor knowledge of societies and human culture, I can...garden (not really a marketable skill, though), and people tell me that my tea's fairly good.




It's probably just a phase.

Remember, foreign languages are areas of expertise!  I know some people here speak Dutch...

I got some Warhammer minis a while back, some Dwarven Miners and Ironbreakers, I believe, and never found anyone to play with me.   :x

Then I got the Dawn of War game and utterly failed at getting any of my friends to play it with me.   :x

Oh, then I also speak Japanese.  (My writing skills are limited, though.  Stupid kanji...)

I never played much WHFB (I don't know if it's even called that any more), I usually played WH40k.  I haven't played in at least 2 or 3 years, though, and all my minis are gathering dust in South Carolina, whence I recently moved.  Now I just screw around on the internet instead.  My computer would explode if I tried to run Dawn of War.  The old WH computer games are great fun, but never really worked multiplayer and in most cases don't work period on current OSes.  Shadow of the Horned Rat, Dark Moon (or something?), the Epic game, and the one that was a "Squad Commander" thing with space marines.  Good times.

GA, you sure it's a good idea to be playing pirated games over the net?
