    Clearance Proceedures

    TD2190 is a Legion member approved by the UKG, but he has not requested 501st access or Sandtrooper access yet. Just to clear that up. He is perfectly eligible to apply for PO (granted he places his 501st forum access soon). All the DOs are asking for is updated photos of certain pieces of the armor. Once he does that and re-opens his application the approval process can proceed. Its all in his court right now!

    Clearance Proceedures

    By presentation, what was meant was yours was missing was certain photos requested by the DO. From what I can see from the application you deleted, you were asked to provide photos of: Green Lenses on Helmet Neckseal Snap on Ab Plate (the right top one) Rubber Gloves Latex Handguards (show they are made of rubber by flexing them in a photo) Side photo showing the gap between your ab and kidney plate (wearing armor with arms raised to see the fit) Pack photo, just the pack alone with decent lighting to see the details, the lighting is a bit dark in your photos These are all pretty standard in applications, it was just a request so your application could move forward, it has nothing to do with photo quality or how it was presented. The DOs frequently ask applicants for more photos so they can see what they need to see. Its not an attack on you, just the application process.

    Using Imgur to host pictures

    With photobucket gone people are using Flickr or imugr to upload their photos. I personally have been using imugr for years because of how easy it is to manage. For those wanting to switch over Here is a rundown of how to use it. First you need an account, its free, and easy to set up. Next you can upload your photo, either drag it into your browser to click the upload button on the top left of the screen. I usually upload things privately, but you can upload public or private, whichever you like (public just submits it to the feed all the imgurians look at, its open to comments and voting, I usually skip this). Once uploaded, you can click on your user name in the top right, then click "images" Then you get a menu of all your uploads. Click on whichever photo you want to upload and copy the text where it says "direct link" (not image link), then just paste it into your post. If you are using MEPD.net it will auto format it all. No html required. Not sure about tapatalk. You can also change the size of the image at the bottom of this screen, but MEPD.net will auto format the size. I am not sure if tapatalk does this.

    SOLO - Mimban Trooper CRL Development

    Thats a fair point. We will consider it. Typically we encourage the building of packs and accessories to further your skill sets, but we are also bound by screen accuracy and representation. We treat our level 2 (police officer) as a way to show that you have completed all aspects of a deployed trooper, armor, blaster, and pack. Our level 3 (SWAT) is for complete screen accuracy, its standards are held higher and higher as we find more accurate information. Weathering patterns, imperfections, unique props and additions, etc. It is probably the hardest level 3 in the entire legion. For basic approval most accessories will be optional, and basic is all you need to get out there and troop!

    SOLO - Mimban Trooper CRL Development

    We are thinking of treating the packs the same way we handle the ANH Sandtroopers. Considering many Sandtroopers don't wear packs too. For Sandtroopers packs are not required for basic approval, for level 2 they are required, and for level 3 they are only required if the on screen trooper you are emulating wears a pack. It will probably be more or less like this for the Mimban, but maybe a little different since there are so many variations of this trooper.

    11B30B4’s RO Crystal Patrol Pack Build

    Glad you posted this over here! You are looking great. A lot of hard work went into this and it shows. Agreed not to beat the dead horse, totally understand why you wouldn't want to dirty up your kit. That is 100% up to you. The rule isn't necessarily only "dirty" stormtroopers come to MEPD, its slightly more complicated but I guess thats an easier generalization. The history of the MEPD is its own thing we won't get into, but where the MEPD is now is a much different place than it was just a few years ago. We are super grateful for the heavy lifting over at FISD for this pack, many of us participated (there or on Facebook). I have held the stance that this pack, while belonging to the MEPD in the form of the Crystal Patrol Trooper, should also be an optional accessory for the R1 troops as a compromise. Now that is not for me to decide and it is only my own personal opinion. The other thing about this pack and the MEPD is we still need a CRL model. We already have one for the Jedha trooper and the new Mimban trooper from Solo, but this one is still eluding us. Should you eventually want to help create this CRL with us we welcome you and have a locker in the MEPD break room with your name on it! FISD and MEPD have worked in tandem for many years, we have a great relationship with the command staff. The new direction for the MEPD was decided by both detachments not too long ago. We are still adjusting to the new expansion of this detachment. While it is our origin, we are no longer just the Sandtrooper detachment. Thank you again for posting this and your progress, it will be incredibly helpful for those pursuing this pack. You did an excellent job!
