but as for me i havnt built my armor yet. .cuz i aint rich or get allowance for that matter. ..but my point is to take out the armor quality grade and make it a bonus thing if you want to..then otherwise everyones going to stress out if their armor looks awesome or not...Primal Weyland said:In which case we'd all be officers.
My suggestion would be to have the Admins as the main officers (top ranks) and everyone else would be collectively ranked based on a combination of join date, post count, useful input, rep, and armor quality.
Halo 3 skills aren't really a good way to judge people.

So since im not any good with making armor, and none of my local stores around me sell materials for armor making, my time is wasted here? Fine then, i'd like my 3 months of wasted time back please.thefreeman said:if you dont have armor and dont intend to finish armor, why are any of you even here? the point of this site is so we can all learn and make armor and costumes.
I gotta agree with thefreeman here..... this is a costuming site. If you're not interested in making a costume, it's kinda weird to still be here.thefreeman said:if you dont have armor and dont intend to finish armor, why are any of you even here? the point of this site is so we can all learn and make armor and costumes.

So.....buying armor vs buying a shirt is different? Either way, you're buying something, and either way, it's what people will decide to wear for whatever the reason is. You're right though, this site is for building costumes and props. Still....some people are deciding *not* to under current circumstances, so I'm just giving them an option. The end result is that they'll have costumes better than t-shirts, so it's their call. Kits sound good, and it makes it easier on me. I'd actually *prefer* kits if people also want it.Twisting_Neather said:While it would be nice to have costumes available for purchase, it defeats the original purpose of this site. We make costumes, and build props. We help each other and provide input. The 405th is a fan group designed to give armorers a community to developer their crafts and distribute them to individuals. I can see possibly, designing some kind of kit of to help people get started. (But thats basically what Pepakura is) I know what it's like to try to build this from nothing when you've never made a costume before, but we can't sell/give costumes to people joining.
I would think that a T-shirt/Polo shirt with the 405th logo could be sold to members and recruits so that they can still be a pert of the group, be spotters, and look cool with the Spartan II, but to do more would be very costly and counter productive to our goals.
I don't know how old you are, but I think *age* is no excuse. Some people have used free cardboard to make costumes, and I've seen one guy get creative with only paper. Money has nothing to do with it. Shoot....I'm in college, paying my way through it, a car, and all other neccessities. Do I have money? Yeah, but not enough to make my costume the "Adam way". Be creative, learn about cheaper materials, and the abilities will be there waiting for you.TheUnamed said:im still here because I want a suit but kids my age or younger cannot progress without money... so its easy for an adult to say these things.. why would anybody whos a halo fan would want to leave this kind of opportunity behind when they think its "a waste of time"...im doing this for the thrill and experience of having my own set of armor..who wouldnt.. Just dont tell a kid or anybody that they are wasting their time..cuz im not and thats all that matters..
