Hello, I am looking for a couple experienced PMs to bounce a story idea off of that I have been putting together for the last month or so. I have the large parts all fleshed out I just wanted some input and opinions. I also won't have the resources (actors) to pull this off how I would like, so if you are interested in running with my story you are more then welcome to it. Send me a message here or an email at mork.swanson-SPLAT-gmail.com

Hi! I'm Bixy-Rose (or just Rose), and I'm a long-time lurker in the ARG arena, though I've only been involved in a couple active games, and have never posted on the forums here. I am not looking to run a game, but would like to be part of the BTS team for one or a few.
Here are the skills/uses I can provide:
-actor (for video/audio/photographic roles, or just being behind the keyboard)
-a video camera, and woods behind my house
-basic photo editing
-basic audio editing
-working knowledge of blogging/social networking sites (facebook, twitter, livejournal, etc.)
-LOTS of free time
-LOTS of enthusiasm
I really love the idea of being part of an ARG, and will really throw myself into whatever I get involved in. I can be reached via email - evie SPLATbeyondtherift.com - or over AIM - stedelweissrose.

- Excellent research skills.
- Great computer skills.
- Pretty good flash skills.
- Great video and audio manipulating skills with access to professional level software.
- A great professional level camera.
- Professional video production experience.
- Some HTML and website design experience.
- Photo manipulation experience.
- Acting as well.
I've always loved the idea of ARGs and for some reason decided just now to try to get onboard a team to help create one. I've got lots of free time.

Hi, it's my first time posting, but i've been lurking around for a while
I've been interested in ARGs for quite some time, but i have never actually joined any (at least, i have not been part of a community yet), i like following the games, and even try to solve puzzles on my own sometimes. So, as you can see i'm not very experienced, but i got the curiosity of making my own ARG, i even had some ideas (i was thinking of making one in spanish), but i thought it would be better if i got involved in other people's ARGs first and gain some more experience.
-I'm a Graphic Designer, so i can work Photoshop, Illustrator, Fireworks and even a little of Flash
-I'm good at drawing and i like photography. Examples of some of my works (that DA account is a little old though, the pictures there does not reflect my current skills, but it gives you a little hint about them)
-I can design the layout for websites in fireworks, but i'm not that good at scripting them (Very VERY basic HTML and CSS knowledge)
-I like writing stories, but I'm not that fluent in english I understand written english almost perfectly though ( I guess you can say my english level is "Advanced" but not yet "Fluent")
Other things to consider:
-I work, so i would not be available 24hrs a day.
- I'm not good with horror and very graphical gore (i'm a chicken... )

major city pms needed anyone else sometimes running an arg and thinking, most of my players are in place X but I'm in another country???
Each of us helps out the other pms by making a country list here, with cities/states/regions as need be - this way, when a PM wants a drop of a memory stick etc in place Y, they can contact PM in place Y, send them an electonic cash lump for buying a memory stick [or owe it and return later?] and pm can do the drop and set up - helpful for everyone and means games can be stretched out a litle - a thought, nothing more at moment, but I for one, would love access to PMs in other countries for the final part of my arg starting soon...
summary: about to kick start the third and potential final part of my arg - london based, to start with - but pm's from all over the world would be really appreciated - big mega game thought of - needing mega world people though - anyone??!!
List: I'm Paul, In London, UK. Sometimes travel to Cambridge, Wales, Bristol and Devon...
Please PM me if you can help sometime this year and are in major city - thanks...

Location: Austin, TX
Skills: Graphic design, web design, and pretty much anything on the tech side of it. Photography. I'm also decent at doing in character stuff, as well as story. My availability over the summer is also a plus, as I'm a student.

I've been here long enough that I figured I might as well actually post here once in a while.
Location: New Jersey about 20 minute drive from NYC.
My skills are as follows:
*I have a completely warped and unusual imagination
*I have a degree in graphic design. I prefer to do anything EXCEPT web design. I have the ability to do it just not the desire.
*I've got some pretty good writing skills
*I LOVE doing research
*I wanted to be a spy when I was younger so I've got extensive knowledge of codes/ciphers--I used to pass notes in elementary school written in cipher so the teacher couldn't read them out loud if she found them
*My daughter calls me a destroyer of dreams because I'm very good at finding potential problems/ plot holes
*Chronic insomnia so I'm at the computer close to 20 hours a day
You can email me at my gmail address agent.047 or pm me here
