    Well if you want, the brainstorming sectino is open to everyone, however know this, brainstormers get only one vote, unless they are really awesome. people who do mutiple things get 2 votes. managers get 3. admins get 5. that way, people who are invested in the project get more votes. its not a preccise key, but the more you help, the more voting power you get.

    Ok, cool. Do you have any need for other skills/positions? Not saying I'll have any but it would be nice to know what your looking for :p

    EDIT: Basically I'm am going to have A LOT of free time... 8 weeks or something cool :) And don't have anything to do as of yet, sept two weeks holiday! xD

    Sc2 comes out in June? Perfect.

    Hmm, guess it depends on how big you want this, or how popular it gets.

    I'm pretty sure there will be more than one attempt at this, obviously I'm hoping this is 'the one' in which case I can think of several more positions:

    Already:

    -> Multiple Programmers (triggers/g script)

    -> Multiple Terrain/Map Makers

    -> Data Editors

    -> Managers (probably secondary positions?)

    Ideas:

    -> 2D graphics Textures/skins (photoshop etc)

    -> Models/3D art (No doubt you'll be short on resources, at least to begin with).

    -> Beta Testers (at a later date?).

    -> Composers (it won't be wc4 with sc music xD).

    -> Concept artists (for modeller/terrain reference).

    -> Website/Signature maker, e.g. someone with knowledge in action script, html etc...

    -> Directors/Designers, kind of similar to managers though in my opinion:

    Managers: Who does what, time needs doing in etc...

    Directors/Designers: Tell the terrain/triggers etc exactly what they want, "a combat system like this" or "No the music should be more like this..."

    Most would see the above as the same I guess... :/

    -> Writers - People knowledgable in wc4/3 lore and good English skills, you'll want a couple if you plan on doing a story driven campaign.



    And if you REALLY wanted to be fussy, you could divide the above even further, seeing as how complex you can get with the new editor:

    UI Design

    Battle Director

    Sound Mixer/Editor

    Cinematic Design

    Structure Modelling etc...




    What your suggesting is HUGE, so the team will need to be to, I really hope you can pull this off, It would be so awesome o_O

    Somthing lik that is the plan. And i'll add all of those positions. The more people join, the better this will be.

    SO: what positions do you want, and what accredidations do you have?

    I knew something like this would end popping up sooner or later. Kewl.

    All I can offer is my imagination, my knowledge of Warcraft lore (pre and post wow) and my newly acquired C skills, which will seem to be useful with the new galaxy code.

    OK.

    I don't have the galaxy editor yet so I refuse to apply for a position related to that (for obvious reasons) but will be more than happy to swap/jump positions as you/directors/managers want once I have a copy of the game.

    I would like to apply for the following position/s.

    -> Character Design, Story Composer/Vice Director and/or Descriptive writing. (Writing basically...)

    -> I will help you with any HTML/JavaScript needs, if any, to the best of my ability, which should increase dramatically from June onwards (assuming you don't require me in the editor).

    Reject/Accept as you will, but note that as mentioned I will work on anything else you need as long as I have the software to do so or can afford it.

    So for example, I can't work in flash or dream weaver as I don't currently have access to them and don't know anywhere that does them at an affordable price (for me).
