Brief Update: Just to keep you all posted on what's currently happening with the non-MP gang stuff, here's the goss. We've created a new Recruitment and Chat forum so we're getting a good fresh start. All old topics (other than currently active chat topics) will be moved into the gang archives.
I've completed the new rules as well as a complete "How-To" guide on making your own successful gang. I've written just over 3000 words over the last two days, so I hope you like what you see (when you see it). I've taken all of your criticisms into account and I hope everyone will be pleased with the final result.
Also, Sherman, Chris and myself have started working on a group called "The Commission". This group will decide who becomes official. Each gang will be judged on activity, reputation, and general contribution to the gang scene. The Commission is still under works at the moment, and it's other functions in the gang scene is yet to be decided.
Things are progressing well. All official gangs will notice a new topic created in each of their private forums as well as in this forum letting them know how long it will be until the system is implemented.
Shouldn't be long now.
Sorry if this is too brief, I'm about to head to bed. If you have any questions though, I'm glad to answer them.
