I don't have many long, evaluative posts.

Mods:
-MBOpal
-MBFuture (dead)
-MBElite (informal)
Received requests from:
-MBAdventures (not accepted)
-MBReal (considering)
I think that due to the nature of my job (dropping off a sky or two and being finished), I may work in more than one mod, but it is unlikely I will want to work for any new mods anyway, and regardless I will make MBE2 my highest priority.

Specialities:
-Skyboxes
-Particle management (I have recently discovered I have a talent for this)
-General aesthetic bugfixes (grammar, alignment, e.t.c.)

Essays:
Skyboxes: A few years ago, I discovered a program called Terragen (TG). I learned how to use it to create very realistic landscape pictures. After making exactly 28 different TG skyboxes, I learned of TG2, which I am continuing to learn how to use because of its infinitely more complex interface. Skies made with TG2 can have things like interplanetary views, objects and vegetation, extremely advanced terrains and clouds, and many other features.
Particles: While working on MBO, I became interested in coding, and after successfully making a marble-modifying trigger, I made a powerup that used some interesting particle effects. I will not say exactly what it does in case someone reads this that isn't supposed to, but Ian knows what I'm talking about, and you can see a picture of it below.
Aesthetics: I tend to find myself fixing everyone else's grammar and fixing help triggers, start text, level descriptions, and the rest.

I would like to be in the staff because:
I think almost all of the past mods have lacked organization, and that has been their greatest weakness. I really don't like saying I will contribute to a mod that will likely fail in the near future, and I get tired of it. For both of these reasons I am applying to MBE2.
