CP: Position Request

Hi. As you all know, I'm Chocolatepie33, aka CP. I've been here a while (about 2 years?) and I know a lot of you relatively well. I first learned of Platinum Arts Sandbox maybe 3 years ago, and it's made a pretty big impact on me. Before that point, I had no clue what I was going to do in life. While Sandbox hasn't shown me exactly what I want to be, it's helped me narrow down my ideas into the areas of design and creation, and that's just the tip of the iceberg of what Sandbox has done for me. I'd really like to say thanks to Mike and Hirato and them for that. Oh, and to Hirato and other guys up top that I seem to be constantly bugging: sorry for that.

Now I'd like to give back. I've said before that I'm a "secret member of the support team", but that was just sarcasm. Now I'm asking to be some kind of a moderator or a full member of the support team. I now we already have a good support team, but those on it show up rarely (no offense to Arcones and Leo, but I rarely see you guys on here).
I know I haven't contributed a lot in terms of resources for Sandbox, but I'm working on that. I've got quite a few textures (my own) stockpiled away, along with some maps and a few simple models. There's also a lot of other people's work that I've found that could be very useful to Sandbox that I have. I plan to release those soon, and you should be seeing a topic about that maybe by the weekend.

I've done a lot to help people here, including answering questions, testing maps and such (sometimes) and generally providing ideas and feedback. I'm on virtually every day, and quite often at that. I have a variety of areas of knowledge and expertise, both relating and not relating to Sandbox. I've contributed quite a lot to the wiki as well. I don't think I can provide a perfect, specific list, but I understand Cubescript quite well along with general Cube 2 and game design stuff. With summer around, I plan on learning on using RPG mode and also more on using Blender, primarily for character animation purposes.

I'm also asking if there's such thing as a "contest admin" kind of position, I've brought it up before (http://forum.sandboxgamemaker.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3641&p=31665&#p31665), and I think it would be a useful position. Someone plans a contest (including themes and possible awards), and then they announce it and moderate judging and such. I have a good list of contest ideas and themes made (well, I've had that list for a long time now, actually), and the job sounds quite easy. It could help bring the community together in different ways, and would also benefit Sandbox as a whole project. Should this position be both plausible and useful, then I would like to have it.

Well, there you go. G'Night, and see you sometime tomorrow.

I've only dropped about 5 dozen hints about you joining the Support Team!! :D

Glad you finally put this up and I do indeed support your request.

Thanks for the support, you guys.

@Arc: What hints? :lol:

Yeah, I've kind of been just going with the whole undercover member thing, but this is probably the best time to get this over with, with summer around.

CP: I guess that would explain why you haven't submitted this sooner :P

Basically whenever I'd send you a PM thanking you for helping out around here, especially when we had influx' of people asking questions :)

Maybe sometime we could all have a team meeting and get some official positions filled. I definitely have a bunch of positions I'd like help in because there are just too many things to do and trying to develop at the same time is crazy. Besides the support team I'd love to get a group together to be in charge of holding the contests and maybe even a PR team :) Take care.

I'll add you to the support team for sure. The best way to get at me when you want something is to e-mail me because I have a lot going on especially since right now I'm coaching soccer. Maybe I'll make a public announcement too about trying to get a contest team in gear and whatever other jobs we need to fill/could have to enhance the community. Thanks for being willing to help out, I appreciate it as I'm sure does the entire community!! Take care :)
