    D'aww, you'll make me blush~ :p

    It's not like it's particularly difficult work, just time-consuming. I just need to learn how to use PSP/ Paint to some degree of mediocrity and I can help out a lot more. :D

    For what its worth its really easy, I've got a template set up for every page in Bugman's so if you download a copy of GIMP all you need to do is edit the text............;)

    Bounty Board and Hall of Fame are a tiny bit more challenging while still being really easy. Its only if you want to hand out any special badges you have to do much beyond crop and copy paste.

    Alrighty then - I'll get it downloaded tomorrow and can take over permanently on records duty after I get used to it. Which'll be like... literally after this week ends, I suspect. :D Send me the templates whenever you feel like it, TS.

    EDIT: If it's LITERALLY going to be a text removal/ replacement jobbie, then I can probably have it done by Wednesday evening. So if you haven't started on it, I'll see if I can whack out the entire set by then. :D

    Val, I seem to recall you asking people to suggest odd little awards and such for some project of yours... I can't seem to locate the thread, though.

    I'd like to submit Wyrmwood's Gruechitter the Foul as Most Vicious Rookie of the Big Crunch. To earn his 6 SPP to get to 2nd level, Gruechitter killed two opposition players and permanently injured another. To my knowledge this is a rookie record in the BC. The only way it could be beaten is if a rookie were to earn their 6 SPP by killing THREE opposition players.

    Worthy of an award? Maybe, maybe not, but either way -- damn!

    Nice might well be the longest, hasn't been recorded anywhere as far as I know so I suggest you claim it for now. Post in the Bugmans thread and Valo should put it in the book.

    Looks like there's an extra 'threads' level missing from the urls. I'm guessing they probably broke when the forums got restructured?
    Now you've pointed it out, I'm sure cj will be along soon to update the OP. ;)

    That's odd it was working in the season break which was well after the forum move. If it's not fixed in the next couple of days I will go through and fix it manually.

    Oh yeah.

    This looks like a job for the off season. Hopefully when I'm not split between admining three leagues I can sit down and do this.
