This is where you can make suggestions or give feedback on the Metrocop site and forums. Please bear in mind that I have a few limitations as to what I can do, therefore your requests may not always be possible to accomplish!

Because I'm an absolute genius, I'd disabled replies from members in the Announcements & News section. My thanks to Fort for pointing out the absolute cleverness of that completely intentional feature.
(Obviously everything but the thanks is sarcastic)

Sorry for that, guys!

We'll forgive you, this time.

My suggestion was to add a tutorial section under Source Creations, where the comics and panels people have made for different topics of useful tips can be posted. The ones that are already out there.

Hey, and maybe, just maybe, I'll start copy-pa-... er, researching and writing about mapping under there as well!

This isn't necessarily something to be implemented ASAP but would something similar to PHW Mayor be something worth bringing to Metrocop? 3 month terms, elections and voting of the candidates and whatnot. I always felt that it was a nice community event to make everyone feel involved.

This would only be best once Metrocop gets more members of course and it's entirely on you, Mythos.

Also to caveat off of what Fort was saying, we really should get a thread set up containing hints and tricks for the different mediums on here. It should also have tutorials as well; Photoshop, Head hacking, skinning, GMOD fundamentals etc. etc. Something that gives people a ready made list to help them on their way.

Well you don't have to go and make new ones unless you wanted to (a mapping one would be very beneficial), there are quite a few already out there. Jim's comic fundamentals, numerous speech bubble ones and LT_C made a few. I recall some others but can't remember who made them (a military posing one)

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I've intended for a while to have a tutorial section on the site with some tutorials of my own (to be made when I have the time and patience), but it sounds like a good idea to have a section on the forum so everyone can share their expertise. In fact, I could very well pick some of those and add them to the site as well!

As for a PHW Mayor-esque activity, it sounds like it could be fun, although on the other hand it does make me fear that it might generate some level of elitism. In any case, it's too early for that, as you said, since we're still a small group. I do have other ideas for activities we could do on the forums, I'll work on those as soon as I make a break from comic making.

...Head hacking...

I could see about getting some kind of guide/tutorial done, as i have some intermediate skill and knowledge on this subject.

Because you demanded it! And also, making forum categories is really easy and it was an excellent idea anyhow. Thanks for the suggestion, guys!
