Ok, I'll do my best to keep a log of what's going on here, mostly in the CTD (since I've got no idea of what's happening in the other departments ^_^ ).

-A few days (one or two, I think), Alex the Greater was banned from our forums, as a consequence from negativism, lack of will to work appropiately, and most important, pissing off the admins. With Alex, it makes two the poor unfortunate souls that were kicked out of our forums.

-RustedSoul has attempted to reunite the X-Net Proofreading Taskforce, sadly, three of the members have not reported in. MagicAndy, Awof and Blehm have not responded, the taskforce will have to go on without them (actually, Blehm is absent due to some parents-issue, we'll most likely to have him back soon :) )
For now, dipstick, RustedSoul and I will have to work on our own while the whole thing is addressed and the taskforce reassembled.

-Qonfused's CT, Artopod Autopsy is wrapping up nicely and should be completed soon. Same for Hailfire22's Cloak Concept, nearing completion.

-I've made some minor modifications to my Artopod Concept, assistance was provided by Qonfused in light of his nearly-completed Autopsy (other people have helped as well, of course :rolleyes: ).

-The polls have been opened again!, voting for Abductor, Terror Ship, Battleship and Supply Ship has commenced. Polls regarding other Alien craft have been moved to the Top Floor where they shall be closed and the names picked by RustedSoul. Xenocide's name for Cydonia is open to suggestions in the Workshops, come and share your ideas!

-The CTD Asset List has been slightly modified to improve efficiency by RustedSoul. It has been changed to show which CTs have been proofread in addition to completed.

-The Master Maniac has gone AWOL, as he failed to mail me a CT which he was writing <_< , let's hope our retrieval squads will find him and have him back soon.

-Some recruits have started a topic regarding Pardus, an online strategy game, a very deep and cool-looking one, which sadly I don't have the time to play :crying: , they are trying to make an Alliance within the game, for which they need 500000 credits, they are all working on it, join them in the Patio and check the game!

That's all folks, join us next time for more news! :happybanana:

- For those following, I passed my Math B exam :D, only four more exams to go to college.

- Jim0n (sounds familiar, doesn't it? :P) is our newest recruit, one for the CTD.

- Red Knight, our fearless leader, is ten days away from receiving a diploma for... something, sorry, I've no clue yet, licenciate?, I'll try to find out.
RK EDIT: (Shameless Hijack) It is Licenciado en Ciencias de la Computación, basicly Computer Science Bachelor Degree, now I will have the piece of paper ;).

- AD&D in the forums!, Judge Deadd has started a game in the Patio, so far is Breunor and me, come and join us, there are two places left.

- The Asset List hasn't been updated due to technical difficulties, but surely the CTD senior, RustedSoul, will find his way through them, fear not :)

- Today's MagicAndy's birthday :happybday: , as of today, he is 20. Haven't seen him around in a while though.

- The Xenocide Alliance has been created in Pardus, composed entirely by our forum members (so far), how cool is that? :naughty:

- Work is progressing slowly at the Proofreading Taskforce, perhaps due to the fact that the number of active members is 2, but is progressing nonetheless.

- I've started working on the Viper and Morlock CT to make them fit standard format and to check for incoherences in order to deal with [Aliens] once and for all :devillaugh:, Grey Ct is next on my list.

- I've seen The Master Maniac at Pardus... looks like the game's luring more and more members into it.

- I've had a little talk with an Inactive Project Member we all know or have heard of, he has regretfully told me that it is unlikely he'll come back. For the sake of his privacy, his name shall remain secret :)

- I've been proofreading Artopod Autopsy, Cloak and Spawn CTs, they may still need a tweak or two.

-Qonfused has started "Plasma Rifle Clip" in the Active Creative Text.

- The Xenocide Alliance at Pardus is getting its a$$ kicked by a pirate named Hemlock :P, it'll be interesting to see how their plans to catch him turn out :)

edit, for clarification, they are not getting their a$$ kicked... but the thing is that the pirate does as he pleases and they can't stop it for the moment, as I said, this will be interesting to see unfold...

- CTD-Viper has been moved to Complete: Creative Text and RustedSoul has left it to the XNPRTF to revise... which reminds me that no one has applied for proofreader <_< .

- Plans continue to develop in Pardus to teach the pirate Hemlock a lesson, you can follow it's development in one of the... three :o Pardus topics, all in the Patio.

- Our current military rank and rank pips are going to be replaced by department icons and special titles, for instance, where my rank was now reads "XNET proof taskforce". In the Lounge, Stewart has opened a topic for submitting icon and title suggestions.

- Stewart, in a display of power abuse, has tampered with my sig, this shameless act shall not go unpunished! :plasma:

- Hailfire22 has played his first online game of Warhammer 40k, sadly, he has lost.

- Tomorrow is the deadline on release, unfortunately, it seems that we will be unable to reach it.

- Military ranks and pips have been left for non-xenocide board members, thus, NKF is the new Commander, congratulations NKF! :D

- The Xenocide Alliance is looking for a forum of their own, since anyone can google them right into their *secret* base right here in our forums and see their private discussions and plans, it seems like SupSuper's got the solution :)

- More on the Xenocide Alliance, now they have the astonishing number of four topics of their own.

- Hobbes has posted a new map for UFO2000, a farm

- Stewart has begun replacing our pips and titles with some lame icons, he claims that for incentivating the submission of better ones, someone from the AWD should help us out of this :P

- ATeX has posted the Xenocide Main Theme V0.1

- He haven't been able to reach the release deadline.

- RustedSoul has been playing with my signature banner, apparently due to heavy drinking :), in an abuse of his senior powers, the problem has been solved and the offense has been responded to :LOL:

- Tomorrow is Red Knight's day, an exclusive on him tomorrow....

- The Master Maniac is back, I've seen his snooping around the Patio, he has informed me that unless more technical problems arise, he'll be here by tomorrow.

- Kander has posted a link in Active: Creative Text that leads to his web-based X-Net, it is under construction still, but looks definitely great, good job Kander!, unfortunately the site is not suited for Internet Explorers :boohoo:

- Stewart has requested assistance for sorting the Inactive members, if you remember where they used to work, help Stew in the Lounge.

- Our department icons have been changed again, there are some pretty good suggestions by RustedSoul and SupSuper... sorry J'Ordos, never liked the Ordos insignias, I'm an Atreides man myself! :P

- Well, the Pardus threads (all four of them) have gone missing, Micah is working on it, unless this is a very clever plan to deceit the treacherous enemies of the Xenocide Alliance who attempt to seek information in our forums! :sly:

- Raven Squad has posted Ambient Noises in Active: Sound, haven't tested them, but I'm sure they are very good!

- Stewart is receiving petitions to create the website of the X-Com Field Manual.

OMG!, Bullseye!

- Plasma Rifle Clip has been completed by Qonfused and RustedSoul has laid it in the XNPRTF's table.

- The forums are most likely going to be moved on Thursday morning, 0500 GMT. It is anticipated that they will be down for no more than an hour, but they will be shut off during that time. This message you all get, but for recording it anyway.

- No more name submissions for Cydonia, now it's time to discard a few and make the choice.

- My apologies to RS for the misunderstandings I caused :spank: .

- The Signature Wars are over... for now :P (looks at RS' current signature banner)

- Hobbes has posted a new map for X-Com: UFO defense using XCOMUtil, Native.

- guyver6 has requested the AWD to make a skybox, as what he currently have is a plain stars background which, in his opinion, needs replacement badly.

- Some texts we're currently proofreading don't have fluff texts, I've posted http://www.xcomufo.c...?showtopic=6324 so that everyone can submit their suggestions and add them to the ones which don't have any.

- Proofreading of posted texts will end tomorrow, next texts for proofreading will be those needed for Alpha6, according to the list Vaaish provided me with.

- I'll try to revise the Neudar CTs, though I don't think Tzuchan has left any loose ends, but will try to help him anyway :)

- I'll also try to complete Grey and Artopod, so they can be proofread in the taskforce forum, but I think they don't need much work.

- I've been organising the Active: Creative Text forum a little bit, changing thread names to those of Xenocide V1, so they can be found easier, like changing UFO POWERSOURCE to XENIUM REACTOR.

- That reminds me, polls will have to be resumed eventually, I've PMed the provisory leader about it, Cydonia has to go first (showdown!, yaaay!)

- Tzuchan has completed his Anti-grav Powersuit text!

- blehm and Qonfused have joined the Proofreading Taskforce.

- Half Life 2 joins Deus Ex 2 in the list of games that have dissappointed me the most :( , great graphics, but still...

- Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!!! :)

I don't have much time to continue making entries daily now :(, I'll do what I can, but I'm mostly focusing on the work that's to be done in the workshops and the proofreading Taskforce.

- I've opened four polls, names for Cydonia, Alien Food, UFO Construction and UFO Navigation, please vote!!

- Qonfused will work on the Alien Origins entry, which will need to be modified.

- Tzuchan has made a backstory for Xenocide, almost too poetical for my taste, too many dreams...

- The Proofreading Taskforce has started working on the texts required for Alpha 6, the previous ones have been finished, Aliens is almost completed.

- blehm's Condor still needs some work before being completed, I've googled some military pages to help him do the job.

- Vengeance (inspired by Avenger), needs a fluff text, suggestions?

- Mikker's Laser Pistol only needs a texture!, someone knows of a tutorial?

- I've posted a tech tree for V1, it needs revision and someone who does a graphic version of it.

- guyver6 has posted a texture for Globe, it looks great!

- Centurion has joined Breunor and me in battling the Goblin hordes in Ad&D :party:

- Hmmm, mr. googlebot has been PMing someone....

- I've been making things in Active: Creative Text more tidy, now all X-net entries should read "X-Net Entry", and names have been editted into the Xenocide names, now things should be easier to look for. Maybe I'll deal with Completed later...

- XC-33, Barracks, Laboratory, T-Shirt Armor and Artopod Autopsy have been finished, grey and Artopod are still in Active, not for long though I expect.

- I've opened up more assignments for the Proofreading Taskforce.

- It seems Mikker's laser pistol model is having difficulties in being exported to Ogre.

This is dipstick reporting.

Currently Azrael is MIA. We do not know his precise location, but I thought I would post here on his behalf, as we know we have several people that would suffer withdrawal symptoms. :D

Basically, there are several, polls still open, and I will be conducting a grass-roots review of everything in order to update the CTD Asset List. From there, we will be completing the proof reading (and yes, I know we have all heard that before! :P) and moving on to translation. One step at a time....

dipsticj signing off. We will now return you to your regular news broadcast (when he returns.....)

- I am tanned, burned my shoulders, and pretty sick of the heat, it's just too much!, anyway, I'll return on tuesday, and I have a few plans when I do :naughty:
First of all I'll continue the development of the Phase 3 of proofreading, which will be very *very* important, and will probably involve dipstick and me.
I'll also take a look at all that's being done in the Workshops, as I have missed quite a bit, specially in the CTD, and if dipstick requires so, I'll update the Asset List.
And finally, if RK needs me to, I'll upload the proofread files to the Issue Tracker for Alpha 6.

So much to do these days.....

- I've created an html version of the tech tree, the first draft was plagued with mistakes and was hard to read, I've remade it and now it has hyperlinks all over, fixed many things and added research topics that were missing, which btw I've noticed that there are some topics that might have been left out of the asset list, I'll talk to RS and dipstick about it. What a chance to practice my html code skills :P

- I've updated the asset list yesterday.

- I've finished the other polls and started four more: Alien surgery, alien examination room, alien entertainment and alien reproduction.

- I've posted a thread for suggestions for: New Fighter Craft, New Fighter/transport, The Ultimate Craft, Alien Origins and Cydonia or Bust.
Did I include The Martian Solution.....? Yes, I did :)

- Proofreading has been slowed down, dunno why, everybody is kinda busy lately, don't matter, Phase 1 is coming to the end. I am still working on Phase 2 and 3, which might involve, as I said, dipstick, me, and maybe RustedSoul if he has the time :)

Oh, I almost forgot.

- Due to discrepances with Artwork Department, NEUDARs CTs have been moved back to Active, as they need to fit the Artwork models.

More incoming!

- I've updated the Asset List *again* to add three more research topics: Alien Base, Alien Terror and Alien Harvest, they are new and haven't even been started, any volunteers? :Deal:

- I'm happy about how the new html Tech Tree looks now, I'm almost sure that it is non conflicting this time :D
