Hi all,

As from start of December I could use some volunteers in the writing and editing department for the manual for AT Gold. If you feel the AT manual could be improved or you think it could be improved upon and you have some time available in december-january let me know! drop me an email at vic@xs4all.nl

My plan is to divide the work into a number of topics and so divide the workload a bit.

I hope to increase the insight in the engine compared to the previous manual.

You must have equal or better English writing skills then I have to help.

And if you apply please state your MOTIVATION and the topics you would most like to describe and any special tasks you think you should be most suited for.

Any experience with writing manuals would be helpfull but is not neccessary.

Acceptance is not guaranteed and non-acceptance does not mean your not qualified. I will probably not take all applications anyway since working with to large a team of volunteers has its own drawbacks.

Hope to see your email!

best regards,
Vic

I got 1 confirmed volunteer ready to start in december on helping out here.

Ideally i'd like 2 others to join in.

I am not sure if it helps, but it might. If you help out and do so up to expectations, you will get a free copy of AT Gold.

As it looks like now the work will basicly consist of Topical writing and tutorial and walkthroughs making. I will have already written al the dry and boring rules and game algorithm descriptions. Work will proceed through a wiki that will stay in operation and become public after release of AT Gold.

Best regards,
Vic

This is important! There is probably a lot more game on my computer than I realise. Not everyone can understand code.

The trouble with manuals written by experts is that the cannot think themselves into the confused minds of us thickos, so they can't figure out what we don't know and why we struggle with concepts which to them are second nature.

I wish I had time over the next two months but, realistically, I don't.
