It's that time again (well you all missed the last time which actually happened on the raven boards before this forum existed) and I've decided to recruit new beta testers. (w00t)

Now, I'll be selecting four new beta testers. And the bad news for everybody is that 2 have been preselected Na na!

As winner and runner up of the "Member of the Year Competition 2002", Simmo666 and Scooter have been preselected as beta testers provided they want to. If they don't want to be beta testers, then that's better for everyone else cause then their space will be taken by someone else.

Now, I'm terribly sorry to everyone this includes but there are restrictions on who I want to be a beta tester, afterall it's not just so you can get a sneak preview, it's so the mod can be tested by several people for problems and I don't want just anybody doing that.

Restrictions:[list:e918d0b292][*:e918d0b292] If you registered before 1st January 2004, you must have a board rank equal to or higher than Lieutenant.
[*:e918d0b292]If you registered on or after 1st January 2004, you must have a board rank equal to or higher than Ensign.
[/list:u:e918d0b292]
Now, it's first come first serve. To be a beta tester you must reply to this topic and the first word in your reply has to be:

POOKAHOLIC

IT MUST BE IN BOLD, ITALICS, SPELT CORRECTLY AND IN CAPITAL LETTERS. GO REPLY NOW!!!!

No more beta testers needed!
No matter what I choose, no matter how much I buy, the ones I love will always be the ones who pay. Whatever life holds in store for me, I will never forget these words, "with great parents comes great reliability." This is my gift; their purse. Who am I? I'm Dobberman.

Good stuff. Isn't it like 3 am in Ireland right now? I was over there in June b/c my dad's from Co. Westmeath, around Mullingar. I hear that Mullingar has been doing really well in the Gaelic Football tournaments. I'll put this in off topic if this is a bit off subject.

I prefer to get the whole finished MOD at once, rather than be a betatester.

That's a tough call. Hope you can get it though, Sam. And I'm shocked this topic isn't active like crazy right now. Go figure.

Well that sucks... although probably for the better. You never know, we might have to try out it's LAN capabilities. LOL! Even if i can't play it there is no way you can stop me from seeing what it looks like Wink I walk through Scooter's "room" on a daily basis. LOL! and there is no door for him to close. i could always steal the files off of his computer Na na! while he's at work. Or listen to the sound effects down the hallway... assuming that there are new sound effects.

You're not missing much yet. The old betas from 2002 make me want to cry. Looking forward to the new stuff though. From the screenshot I've seen, Dobber's mapping skills have improved a lot since this mod started.

I checked out the beta's from 2002. That was some good stuff. That was great. I know it was very early and looks a ton better now but its still just really cool getting to see the originals. I dunno, its kinda a sense of nostalgia I think. Anyway, I can't wait for a new beta test to be out. Woo.
Peace.

I just realised.... I'm going away on holiday tomorrow for 2 weeks so, if you're going to be doing a lot of betas in that time.... you might want to replace me, I cant be much help if I'm away after all.

Hey LeprechaunTrekker, how come you haven't posted anything in the dummy test. You know, just so you can get the hang of it.

Sorry Dobberman. I've had a really busy week. If you really want me to I can but I'm pretty sure I'll get the hang of it pretty quickly. But again, if you want, I'll go ahead and do it.

Er, you said that before and I told you the deadline is 27th August not the 23rd of July. The 23rd of July is when the news article was posted.
