Eager to help, not sure how or where to start

Hey guys,

So for about six months now  I have been sort of stalking all of the forums and watching all of the videos on your Youtube channel. It would be foolish to assume that I know the exact situation of your current progress rate, but from most of the forums I have read, it seems you have hit setbacks, most due to the fact that people have stepped back from development or volunteered for projects and then never actually completed or even started. So the more I think about it,  I would really like to help you guys make skywind.

I should probably mention I have no experience with any kind of modding, and I really don't know where to start; modding covers such a broad range of skills and topics.  So I'm asking you(the contributors, moderators, project leaders ect.) which part of the game's creation is in most desperate need of extra help, and then perhaps some friendly pointers on where to get started in the basics of this kind of development. I don't have tons of time on my hands, but I certainly have time to play and mod the video games I enjoy (aka: morrowind :) ) and I think I would rather spend that time learning to help with the creation of something as special as this mod. Morrowind is very special to me, and this may sound silly, but the thought of being able to contribute to a project as ambitious and amazing as skywind is something that makes me feel kind of fuzzy on the inside. I don't know if this post will help you guys out much, but regardless I would like say one last thing: to all of the moderators and active contributors who I often see on the forums almost every day, you people are great. You all work on this project for no pay of any kind while balancing with it with work/school/social lives ect., and that is really amazing and probably vastly under-appeciated. I've kind of rambled on, but I hope I can somehow help you guys out in the upcoming months and year to come on making the project of Skywind a reality.

Thanks for your interest

Thanks for your interest Ervine Almighty. Most of the development of a game takes quite a bit of skill and talent as well as huge amounts of time. It is nice to see you are stoked for the project but there isn't that much you can contribute unless you can dedicate some time.

The only thing I can see that would be obvious is a side project I sometimes recruit more people for which involves the cutting up of voice actors' lines to ease the load on their recording. If you have audio software and have fiddled around with this sort of thing before, I could potentially use your help.

Otherwise, there really isn't a lot of other options, as no offence, someone with no skills (or none cited), and not a lot of time really is more of a time sink for us trying to manage them than a benefit to the project. This is just what we've found over time. If you're interested in the voice cutting, that would be great though as it is very piecemeal in nature :)

I'm perfectly fine with helping with cutting up lines. Should I ask Smitehammer for further instructions on that?
