So you've asked how you can help with the 1.6 release, right? Well, we have some work that needs to be done!

Contact Person Researchers: For the first and most delicate job, we need some volunteers who are first willing and able to follow instructions and second can navigate a web page and collect contact information. You will NOT be contact anyone or posting anywhere (that's why you need to follow instructions). You'll just be looking into a short list of sites and finding what looks like the main conact. We will only contact the sites when the release is about to happen. I'll provide each of you with a list of between 7 and 10 sites to investigate. More details will follow.... C1. C2. C3. C4. C5. C6. C7. C8. C9. C10.

Release Notice Translators: When we do contact these sites, we want to be ready with announcements. So we need translators. It would be best if this was your native toungue but you must at least be fluent in it. One Spanish course in highschool/university will not be good enough. You can sign up as a translater even if you volunteered for the other positions as we have sites in each of these languages that have previously posted WildWest information. T1. English to French Translator: T2. English to German Translator: T3. English to Spanish Translator: T4. English to Dutch Translator: T5. English to Russian Translator: T6. Other Language in which RtCW is Popular (specify): T7. Other Language in which RtCW is Popular (specify):

Download Site Researchers: We have a set of tasks for you to complete. I'd prefer filling these positions with people who did not do our Contact Person Research but if people don't respond in the next couple days, feel free to do both. D1. D2. D3. D4. D5. If you want to volunteer, just post the number for the slot you are filling and we'll contact you. So some one might reply with a post like this: T6. ElMoose-Canadian-Eh Then we'll know that the 6th translator slot is filled and no one else can volunteer for that slot. Got it? Thank you to every one who volunteers!

English to French Translator.. I had a feeling that you would pick that one Biggus! What if you used the AltaVista translator to do the work? Would it work good or not? :confused: If we could do that I might do T2, but first I want more details on the Download Site Researchers job.

The on-line translators are good to translate "word by word". But you can sometimes loose the sense of a sentence so...To translate a word, yes ; to translate a sentence...Not sure.

I'll put you down for D1 Snake. I actually thought that that would be a good job for you! I know you want to help with the release and that's one of the reasons for this post! I'll send you details when I send out the info to the rest of the group. Basically you will be doing searches for key words and reporting back the results.

Right now we have more testers than we need. We will be openning it up wider soon and you'll be included in on that one!
