Isn't that Hugh Laurie? And I'll assume the image relates to his t.v show, House. In which case the statement would be justified.

Im back everybody. Turns out that things didn't go as planned. It took me alot longer to heal than most people, so there is still a chance i might need to have my tonsils out. However, im back and active so lets get this club into action. Also has happened since my last login. My stepmothers uncle miraculously survived and is feeling better than ever, my good old friend, bluehairedmonk has returned to the active state on newgrounds, AND the ever so anxiously awaited simpsons movie is coming out soon.
About bluehairedmonk: me and him have been working together since our very first story for last survivor 1.0 . *little known fact: me and him are the actual original creators of two black books, as we often worked together to create storys for our earliest projects. I would write the storys and he would edit them and try to spice it up a bit. im not sure if he still wants in on our group, but if he does i want you all to show him some respect. If it wasn't for him, this group might have never existed."

Also im upgrading serpy to black group. congrats serpy wherever you are. Also Monkeyv, im placing you as leader of the red group. And both of you have been placed as second in command, meaning if i become afk for more than 2 days or so, or if i have plans to be offline and post it here, you are in charge. Lastly of all, the grand finally of the news.

Phantom, as you are one of the most talented and experianced writers here, im placing you as leader of the black group, for all those who dont know, the black group is the highest ranked group of them all. This means you have the authority to select positions for your group. I will set up the ranks for each group tommorow, and you will assign anybody who joins the black group to the position you think fits them. You can resign this position at any time if you think this is too much responsibility. The same goes to you monkey.

Congrats to everyone.

That's incredible news, I gladly take the position you grant me and I will use it well.

This means you have the authority to select positions for your group. I will set up the ranks for each group tommorow, and you will assign anybody who joins the black group to the position you think fits them.

Not a problem, I'll await further directions. and if I may ask, may I hold a small competition to see who fits better into what position?

You can resign this position at any time if you think this is too much responsibility.

I've never quit a position before and if you look at my sig you can see my position history. And I don't plan on quitting any time soon.

im glad you accepted :). Anyways ya you can have your own mini competitions for ranks, however ill prolly make a seperate forum on invisionfree for that. Mainly you can do anything EXCEPT make those REALLY REALLY big decisions such as disbanding a color group or banning someone from the club. You can, however, derank someone in black group if you believe he is not ready. example: if i put casino in black group, but you believe he is not ready, you can derank him into red group. However, if i put someone in red or yellow group, you cannot derank someone who's not already in your group. Eventually, if you prove to be a great leader, i might even put you as co leader of club (same goes for everyone, however, This opportunity is extremely limited as i will have no more than 3 co leaders.

So tommorow both the rank system and the forum for the black group will be online. After that ill make one for red group, then yellow, and then green. Well, maybe not yellow and green. But red and black will definetly have one. Im still undecided wether i should make one last forum for everyone whos not even in red or black, however i doubt it will happen this week, or even next week.

Lastly of all, 10:30 tommorow (for those who arent in my timezone, thats 18 hours from when this post was written) i have a doctors appointment one last time to check up on the progress and if i need my tonsils out or not. So i will be offline for about 3 hours from that time on.

Also tommorow there will be another contest, winner will get exclusive rights to be the project leader of our next writing project. So that means everybody buckle up and strut your stuff, even you monkey and phantom! Also winner has the opportunity to host our next contest and it's genre and rules (must be appropiate rules tho). So good luck!

Well thats it on news today. Im gonna start working on that forum now

Already been there and seen the place, it looks nice for a beta forum but may I recommend ForumCircle for the next one, it's a much better forum host with more options and I've ran one before and liked it. Though now I sort of lost the link to the Beta forum so feel free to post it...lol

that sounds good and all but i highly suggest not putting shortest also. Just put regulations such as can't be any more than 1-2 pages long. (not ng pages i mean notepad pages). however id stick with 1 page tho cuz even thats pretty long. So anyways todays topic is ether survival, moral, or fantasy, whichever phantom picks. Anways im headin over to the doctor one last time. Wish me luck :)

Sure, we're always open to newcomers. Right now im a bit busy with a few writing projects so could you make a short 1 page story with the genre of fantasy. That way i can rank you by your talent and skill at writing. There is no deadline for this story , it just helps the ranking system out quite a bit. Thanks.

Anyways good news everyone, bluehairedmonk has agreed to join the 2 black books :). For all those newcomers bluehairedmonk was one of the co-creators of the first original 2 black books group ever. After our 3rd story we disbanded because my computer was utterly and completely broken down from a virus my brother put on by accident.
Anyways, hes not the greatest of writers, however he is a good friend of mine, so im putting him on the lowest rank of black group. So that means, phantom, your in charge of training him in writing skills (that is, if your up to the challenge :) ).
Next up on news, the ranking system has been completed. There are a total of 7ranks in all. the ranks are ordered in

Leader: #1 rank
Secondary leader: #2 rank, 2 people will have this rank, they will act as assistants to aid the leader in maintaining the group
Expert Novelist: #3 rank, The best civilian rank in the group.
Novelist: #4 rank, this is the average rank for most group members
Expert writer: #5 rank, this is one of the lower ranks, however, like the ranks above it, it still has influence in the clan.
Writer: #6 rank, this person does not have any influence, you must uprank yourself before you can have a major impact on the rest of the group. A level 6 rank can downgrade himself at any time to be a high powered, lower level group member but once you downgrade, it's very unlikely you'll go back up. Try to enhance your skills to get a better rank.

Lastly of all, the vip rank. The person with vip rank will still have one of the six ranks above, but a vip cannot be downgraded by the leader of the group at any time. The group leader must have permission from me first before he can. The first person to get this rank is bluehairedmonk. Also, from now on anybody who even once gets the rank of leader of the black group, automatically gets the vip rank (however this does not go in affect until he resigns or someone takes his place, as there is nobody in his group who can actually downgrade him :p). I might consider doing this to red group also, but im not sure yet because he can be downgraded by the black group leader.

Anyways, as i was saying, bluehairedmonk will be joining the club/crew. He is placed under vip rank and is placed under the writer rank for the black group.

lastly of all, we have another applicant who would like a story from us. He is a small time flasher, so im placing red team as the writing group for him. Im delaying him for a while so monkey and me can finish up the forum wars collab project. Good luck red team.

Tommorow im putting up the members list again to show everyones group color. Well thats it for news. Happy writing!

Great. As for the fantasy story, I am writing a fantasy/sci-fi novel (though its more on the sci-fi-ish side) would an excerpt from that do, or would you rather have a full-blown fantasy story?

alright phew, it took me about 50 minutes, but i finally got all the members and sorted them out by talent and activeness

MonkeyV = low rank black group member (for his help on the raidforce project) or red group leader, depending on his choice
Rubbershoes = medium rank red group because he's writing a novel, possibly higher later on
Phantom = leader of the black group and Vip status
Bluehairedmonk = low rank black group member. Also has Vip status
Demon cole = low rank red group, because he is inactive
Serpent = undecided. He will more than likely be put as secondary leader rank on red group
Centurion Ryan = low level black group (something like rank 5 or 4 or higher, depending on phantoms decision)
1 House fan = an average ranked red.
Pointydagger = undecided. He hasn't really been on for quite a while
Smiley-Bob = undecided. Same reason as pointy
Eternity sprite = High level red
Apotheo = Low rank black group, because he seems he's gotten ALOT of experiance according to his application on the forums
Tri nitro = havent heard from him in a while. Until he comes back im undecided
Casino = Ether high rank red, or low rank black group
Gunground (me) = lol i guess im ether rank 4 or 3 of the black group, cuz i've got quite a bit of experiance writing actual storys that actually managed to get me noticed by the flash animators (ZOMG?). lol :D

Anyways if i missed anybody plz pm me and ill put you on the list. Now remember, everybody i listed can be upranked or downranked at any time by the leaders of the group color (such as red group leader can only downrank red group members) if they believe that person is worthy of his spot or not. But remember group leaders, a vip can only be downranked or upranked with my permission first.

Anyways time for the daily news again *guh my fingers hurt from doing this every day*. The anxiously awaited arrival of bluehairedmonk will be ether today or tommorow, whenever he reads my pm. I've given him permission to work on raidforce project with me and monkey and casino. However, i would greatly appreciate it if the group leader (phantom) would teach him a trick or two about writing skills (ive honestly never seen an example of his writing, so im not sure how good he is about it lol). Now this is just an option, however it would be very greatly appreciated *not to mention the fact that every good deed you do to help out the clan, the better chance you have at gaining secondary leader of the entire crew/club :) ).

Also the new forum is up and active for all the black group members, and the red group's forum will be put up sometime next week, im a bit too busy to do it right now. Now i have to search for my forum link first cuz i lost it (lol) so i'll post it as soon as i find it, or phantom finds the pm i sent that had it.

Ummm, after that theres not much more news except for...

If you've read all of this post, you might have noticed im a bit happier than normal. Its cuz something really great is about to happen today. My family is celebrating the three things, the fact that our vacation was not ruined because of my sickness, that my stepmothers uncle miracously survived his disease and is feeling better than ever, and that i dont have to have my tonsils out. It turned out i had a very severe case of a virus instead, and now its gone. So today, for the first time in my life, were buying a lobster for dinner! I can't wait for it, even tho i live in the lobster state, ive never actually had one. And i hear that thier delicous. Can't wait :). So happy writing everyone, im gonna be online for a little bit but im taking a break today

alright :). Ill make an exception, if you win ill give you average rank black group (ether 4-3). You've helped me out quite a bit with this project so you deserve it :). Also i wanted to put centurian ryan as red group leader, that way it will reduce the stress for you so we can create much more storys more efficiently and faster...ly. Right now you and phantom are the top candidates for second in command of the crew/club. Keep up the good work :).

How many years have you been writing: Four years, roughly.
How many flash story's you have written: None, but I've edited for two or three.
How many real life story's you have written: Ten, ten to at least 8
And your name (optional): Hmm, not disclosable at the moment, but I hope my screen name will suffice.

phantom is the leader of the black group, if he accepts my offer he'll train you and evaluate you. With your statistics, you'll at least get red group (just one question...those real life storys, how many pages on average were they?). Phantom and you are the only people here so far that got Vip status. If you go to page 4 you can find the forum link to the project. Try to be respectful to cmkinsac...he may be our ticket to success.

Phantom, okay. I hope I won't require training, I don't want to cause him any trouble. Hm, the sort stories, three to four, are anywhere from one to two pages, and the long ones are anywhere from four to six pages.
