    Thanks, i don’t even know how i got to doing all of them, i was asked to do about 4 episodes and other moderators would do 4 each, i saw no one else write any up so i just went mad and did them all,LOL

    Well Coyote01, if you want to ask Jordash if you can become a moderator/write post. I think Me and Airspeed Prime are the only two right now if I am correct.

    This this amazing! It’s so detailed! How long did it take type all this up?!


    Airspeed Prime Reply:

    A pretty long time, I was initially only asked to do about 4-5 of these. With the site’s other moderators doing 4-5 between them. No one else did any so I ended up doing all of them.
    So it was over the course of a few days, though it was only a few hours if you put all of the time typing together.
