    I feel happier working with a programmer that I can meet and discuss the work face to face with if required. Just a personal preference.

    thanks......

    how about how to recruit a programer that actually works, or for that matter a mod member that actually works.

    I'm often tempted to form a mod and rather than delete the sitters from the team list just keep them see how many i can collect, at the end of a certain time limit id move them to a separate list and count them, i rekon if you continually boosted the mod with content, that youd have to do yourself of course and with lots of advertising and pimping plus constant recruitment after release of any new material, i rekon you could get 100 time wasters over a 2 year period.

    You could have a separate list for a higher score of people that join mods get acepted then don't join, the number could be even higher in that chart, i myself had 11 in a 4 week period of recruitment, i rekon thats a good score, can you do better? of course this hobby does take time, one cannot just rush into without expending time, one must carefully craft ones recruitment, any errors and anything slightly amiss will be graciously pointed out to you by the gaurdians of higher light that patrol the forums, so one must be carefull not to incur their roth by a bad recruitment drive, so go into a good carier of mod sitter catching one must put good time and patience into the recruitment speil, also one must also be sure to have something to give for daring to ask for mod sitters, so always time these recruitments around the time of a release of media that you have made as a honey pot for prospective mod sitters, that way one can ensure maxium netting of the mod sitter and avoid most of the roth of the ever watchful gaurdians of higher light that will be ever watchfull of any slip of etiquette and servitude not shown to your audience of potential mod sitters.

    Happy hunting.

    i like to have ALOT of input on the influence , but when the workload gets big, i like to be able to concentrate on coding.

    download wotgreal
    bookmark unrealwiki
    make some copy/paste in woatgreal
    take a look at the result
    try to find why in the wiki
    do it again

    Yeah I was just thinking about that reading this topic.

    Any newbie you bring into your team will learn alot about everything just by watching and asking a few questions witch are normaly simple.

    Another good advantage of this is they will feel loyal to you because you thought them so much.

    Unlike a pro programmer who knew everything already and was just doing what he was told.

    And they will also work better because of that.

    They will feel more relaxed in the team because they were never stressed to make anything big and that will help them work better(and faster) and enjoy what they are doing.

    Plus you would become freinds and doing things with freinds is much better then people you dont know

    I hope I brought some 14 year old wisdom to this topic.

    Yea, I agree with letting others "learn" with experiance. Our mod is now full with coders 2 are experienced and another 2 are learning what they can.
