Yep, I'm all out for this. I can help with the last part, and more if I can. I can upload videos to Youtube. In fact, I'm already doing that.

Get The Word Out (again)
  • Spread Word about YSFHQ
    Get online and tell your friends, post on message boards regarding flight and aviation in general, post links from your Twitter or Facebook. We need word of mouth, because it goes far! Suggestions about how to improve our popularity is greatly appreciated.
  • Post regular updates on our website
    To keep our community informed about changes, we need someone who can take responsibility of posting blog entries that make our website. One a week is fine, and it's a very easy thing to do.
  • Maintain a YSFHQ Facebook and Twitter page
    We need someone who will post about flight simulators and flying, and above all, YS related stuff. That way we can get our social media footprint larger, and in turn attract more visitors.
Show what is YSFlight for new people will be very good mainly tell you what is YSFlight and he can offer, on the community, and maintain a bond of trust and attract more people.

Wordpress is a great site / blog that will be very useful to the community

Yeah, Drupal does content administration (as in submitted addons, servers, screenshots etc.) pretty well though, gonna miss that. Never used Wordpress like how HQ is gonna use it before, its gonna be interesting.

Update 1
Thanks to everyone that have offered to help. Like TB1 said, let's all band together and bring HQ back to its former glory! In case you're wondering what Kaizen means, it's essentially Japanese for "improvement". Project Kaizen aims to be true to this name, continuing to improve YSFHQ over these next few days, weeks, and months. The official start date for the project was yesterday, June 21st, which is the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The last day of summer is September 21st, so we have three months to get as much done as possible. I believe in all of you, we can accomplish this.

Now back to business. All of you that have agreed to help with the project should be on Asana now. There are 5 different projects on Asana, the first two are meta-projects. See the "Project Kaizen: PROGRESS" project for each team's progress, and the progress overall. See the "Project Kaizen: TEAMS" project for your assignments; some of you have yet to join so I have invited you to the project, via the same email you use for YSFHQ. Team leaders have been tagged in the TEAMS project. They will be leading each of their respective project teams, and should be giving you assignments. If you are a team leader and do not have the availability to continue being one, let me know and/or assign a new team leader by tagging them in the TEAMS project. Click "My Tasks" in the sidebar to get a list of tasks assigned to you. As always, let me know if you have questions about anything on there.

Once again, thank you gentlemen. That is all for now.
I make this website.

My position as an Admin was weak when I became one. It was only a result of scarecrow's absent and since his return positions didn't change.

I'd like to stay on staff to help, maybe more useful in the modding/addon section. I do plan to make a come back with modding/repaints. And also flying. Need to update my YSFlight and add-ons.
But if you'll have me, and have a place for me I'd like to help.

Reinvigorate The Community
  • Incentivize Activity
    We already have a flight logging system for civilian flight, but let's expand that to combat and aerobatic flight. Have combat pilots log their kills, and allow aerobatic pilots to get points for a great demonstration. Note that this will involve a lot of testing from the community.
Me, Vandal, VNAF and Scarecrow discussed this in detail a few months back. We have an updated list of current aerobatic teams and demonstrations - however the list is not particularly scalable with certain elements becoming time-consuming to update (e.g. the 'previous appearances' for each item).

These issues could be addressed through the inclusion of a specific aerobatic back-end database of some sort, perhaps facilitated using the new Wordpress system. This would enable the display of a similar style list to the current solution, however with much improved scalability and ease-of-use - ultimately providing a more suitable platform for a potential points system supported through a back-end database.

Non-Staff aren't getting access to any HQ accounts, you won't be able to do that - but you can help spread the word.

Update 2
Thanks to everyone that has gotten started on their tasks. We're slowly making progress.

For those of you that have recently jumped on Asana, check Update 1 for how to get your assignments. I redistributed the teams a little bit, so everyone double-check that. You can expect an update from the web team by this Saturday regarding the implementation of YSFHQ 4.

Once again, thank you gentlemen. That is all for now.

Have to decline your request, working on the Dev Team requires you to have access to some HQ passwords and stuff, I'm not really wanting to give that to non-Staff.

Sorry to backtrack but I'm out. I have come across some fundamental issues with the current hierarchy of the site which I disagree with and so I do not want to take part in this any longer.

I wish you all the best of luck and my apologies once again.
