    Hi guys, I am looking for someone to take over the running of the Featured Systems (TOTM) part of the forum. I'm battling to find the time to do this.

    The person will need to be good at resizing pics, have sufficient bandwidth to receive and upload many photo's, be fluent in html code and have some spare time on their hands to get the totm done on time. You will have to be an active member of the forum and you will need to monitor/follow the members setups threads. The person will be in full contact with the mods and admin for help with anything related to the totm's.

    All the templates etc. are in place so you won't be starting from scratch.

    Anybody interested? :biggrin:

    I personally think it need to be a member of the staff - either mods or admins.... just more transparent that way

    a committee type scenario would be best. a couple of mods to vote on a tank. or possibly people who have already had a tank of the month formin the team? would be better than any one person

    They will not be deciding who will be TOTM, they will only be doing the layout of the page.

    Just to clarify things, the TOTM will still be controlled by the admin/mods, what I want, in laymans terms, is a slave to do all the hardwork.:p (obtaining pics and info from the selected totm, the resizing of pics, the uploading of pics, working the layout of the feature, linking the thumbnails to the larger pics, the entering of text etc. etc.)

    This person will also help to monitor the members threads. All the mods and admin as well as this person will put forward their recommendations as to which tank they think should be featured, we will then together make a decision on which tank will be selected.

    We will still occasionally ask members for their recommendations for TOTM's, as we have done previously.

    So....anybody want to be a slave? It's good fun, ask the mods :biggrin:

    Send me a PM, Thanks.

    i am happy to pitch in.... no idea on code but live fairly close to Dallas ......

    perhaps we can get together a comm of some sorts, dont see if we have a comm, why one of the mods or staff have to do it????

    TOTM should be about displaying fantastic systems, and new breaking ground . developments made that sort of thing...... ...

    I do think that Dallas will be up for the job, always helping and willing, as well as the fact that he did an excellent "Payroll"for me- Very Proffesionally done
