    I would like to signup for the 3* bounty
    " 5. An Ultimate Chocobo Guide (leveling, feeding, dyes, barding, etc.) "

    Do I need to wait for any confirmation?

    Not at all. Just posting here and then submitting a Guide to the Guides section is enough.

    :good:

    I don't believe confirmation is required as per current Bounty rules.

    Edit: yeah what he said

    Alright I'm working on it right now. :) Really tired though. Is it okay to post the guide incomplete? or is there a way to make it public but marked as unfinished?

    Of course it's alright to post a Guide and mark it as incomplete! :)

    Just send me a tell when it it complete - or at least complete enough you'd like us to rate it.

    I believe there's also an ability of saving drafts of your Guides on our Guide page without publishing it. You should be able to return to incomplete drafts in the "Unpublished" link that appears in the dropdown menu when you hover over Guides in the navbar.

    I'd like to sign up for the AST guide and mount guide, assuming I can sign up for both. Otherwise, just the AST guide.

    Minion guides! I hope someone does the ultimate, since I'm still missing some from ARR, and Heavensward has introduced a bunch more! Collectors assemble!

    Anyone doing the Mount, and/or (especially) the Minion guides, don't forget about those obtained through cash purchases. There's the obvious CE edition items, and then the less obvious purchases of Sountracks, Stuffed Animals, and Artbooks that come with an in-game minion.

    Would my AST post in the DoM forums be considered a guide? It's basically there at this point, but if so i can move it over to the right spot.

    EDIT:

    Just in case, I have a 2* AST Guide I'd like to contribute.

    I can't speak for Fybrile on reusing your previously made guide, but as one of the staff who'd likely be approving it, the 2 star Bountys are for "Complete Job" guides. I'd recommend finishing it up with the missing information and maybe touching it up. To me a "Complete Job Guide" would contain information on all Skills and their use, as well as anything important related to traits and ideally would touch on common problems like mp management.

    It would be good if it contained full details on each of the cards and they're use. As an aspiring Astrologian I'd like to know who to use each of my cards on, and when. You probably have all this information spread through out your 2 threads and would just need to organize it. Could even quote Mikari or whoever else as long as they were credited.

    I don't mean for the Bountys to sound intimidating :p I wouldn't judge super harshly, but I feel like the above would be reasonable criteria for what's being asked

    Triple Triad Card Collection Guide - Complete~

    The guide is incomplete for part 2 due to reasons mentioned but the Card collection for 1-80 Patch 2.51 and 2.55 are finished. You can judge and rate as you please and I plan to update the guide as soon as I can get more information from friends etc, and in game (I still haven't even gotten to lvl 15 yet Lol )

    No, I absolutely agree it needs to be cleaned up a bit. Was more wondering if I was on the right track, and I think that (with some formatting) that answer is yes.

    I'll have it finished in the next few days. Work first, and all that.

    A lot of threads on the Forums would definitely be considered a Guide! :good:

    Many of them might need a bit of formatting for the Guides section, or some updating for the older threads that don't have 3.0 info, but the core content is right there. Let me know if you need any help transferring a thread to a Guide (I can change a thread into a Guide pretty simply without anyone having to copy/paste or lose their discussion.)

    @Fybrile For the Chocobo racing guide since I'm doing the main chocobo guide, Do you want racing strategies in this as well or more information on items and what does what and how to level up / rank up ? I've never been good with racing games. But if you want a stats and in depth information guide I can probably do this fairly easily while working along with the Choco-Bros guide.

    Ultimate Chocobo Guide(leveling, feeding, dyes, barding, etc.) Status: Complete~

    Need to find some images and eventually add all 85 flipping colors to the dye colors.
    And need to at some point get the recipes for ALL 85 options from Desert yellow > Option

    Needless to say that's going to take some time :dead: So the guide is finished and will be updated when I can find all that info and images, Some of the 3.0 bardings are still unknown on how to get the Noble Barding being a good example.

    Umm, I've alway wanted to summit a guide, and I have 2 in mind, but they don't seem to meet any of the requests. I could also do a Ultimate WAR Guide, but not sure what that requires to be a Ultimate Job Guide. And I'm not even sure if I want to do that one.
