OK since I'm unclear of the current state-of-affairs within our burgeoning Sins modding community and in anticipation of a flood of new members when the game is released I decided to make a quick reference sheet for myself. When I was done it was rather sparse to say the least and I was really no further ahead then when I started. Thus I figured there ought be a single comprehensive thread so the entire community can easily see what is going on and who is working on what project. This would allow us all to work off of the same page so to speak in order to prevent misunderstandings, miscommunication and most importantly replication of work. Hence the creation of this post.
I decided to break things down into the following areas:
1. Name - The franchise brand name - self explanatory.
2. PoC - Point of Contact - The person who is apparently leading the project.
3. URL - Universal Resource Locater - The domain the project will be based at for the community.
4. Info - General information and overview - self explanatory.
5. Link - Threads on this forum related to the project.
Currently we have the following proposed projects in the works for major SF TV and game franchises. The projects are listed alphabetically and not in any order of preference or priority.

BattleStar Galactica (BSG)PoC:
Sins of Alethia (SoA) is the project name because both the Cylons and humans believe they are on the side of truth in their respective intrepid struggles. We are hoping to achieve not only an accurate representation of classical and contemporary BSG lore, but to also pay tribute fans by firmly grounding the project in the extensive BSG fan-fiction lovingly crafted by its followers and incorporate our own in to the mix.

If this information is not accurate please post in this thread and let me know. I will update things accordingly within a 48 hour period.
I would like it if project leaders could make a quick description of their project for inclusion in this thread and provide any other relevant information that is listed as "need" so all the new blood can easily understand what is going on with what and with whom. I will also add links to the appropriate primary thread within this community as well as make links back to the project leaders once confirmed. The same goes for the websites and development forums. The banners will be replaced with one for the project when an official one is made available. Additionally if there is any other data that people feel would be useful to be listed please let me know.
