It seems what we really need at this point are
A secretary - this word has gotten a bum rap, the secretary is probably the most vital person to the success of the project, tracking everything and keeping all the moving parts in synch - think of this as "good note-taker and project manager combined" - Anyone?

I'd love to be a leader, writer, or secretary.

Like I said, I'll do anything. Mark, when would you love to see this thing started and finished?

I also forgot to mention, I'm not to great with design, but everything else should be great!

I would be up for the design/layout portion. I have some experience with web development and layout design, as well with HTML, Java, and some php coding.

Time able to devote, anytime you need me :)
ME:  "I'm a graphic artist."
HIM: "whats that? What do you do?"
ME:   "well actually it can be pretty hard, i have to  code and..." (getting all technical with my words on what i do."
HIM:  "blank Stare"
ME: "I make pretty pictures..."

Qualifications: My last name is Nicolai.

In all seriousness, I'm at your disposal. I have at least 10 hours a week spent on video games. Might as well kick the habit by filling it with productivity.

Well,  I've never done really layout stuff. But I'm up for anything. I like to write or take notes. I'd be up for the secretary job. But whatever you can use me for I'm up for it. :)

I do want to help. I could dedicate about an hour a day on weekdays and 3 or 4 on saturdays and sundays. I feel like I could help as an information gatherer. I don't have any real qualifications, though.

Thanks for the offers everyone!! We've actually got enough people to get started on this, and a few extras who I will ask to help us out on other projects!

Patrick Witbrod sent in an amazing application that made him a clear choice as a great project leader! He'll be sending out an email in the next couple of days to setup the game plan. For anyone who we didn't select for the project I'll be sending you a pm with some other projects that we have going on to see if you might be interested in helping with those instead.

Thanks again everyone, we're looking forward to making a great "Getting Started" section and continuing to try to make APK the best place for Parkour info!
