Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Michael,
I've been getting interested in buying spore lately (saw a bunch of videos on youtube first) and learned of some of its watered-down ideas (though the original concept was still amazing). I was excited to catch wind of this Thrive project. When I read that you would like contributors, even as scientific advisers, I couldn't help but sign up. I have no programming skills, but I can offer any insights available which you may want as Thrive continues to...well....thrive.
I have a B.S. in Biology and a M.S. in Fishery Science (would like to get a PhD if circumstances allow). Here's a quick description of my academic background:
Biology of Marine Mammals
Comparative Anatomy of Vertebrates
Fisheries Biology & Management
Fish Genetic Enhancement & Resource Management
Aerial Photography & Remote Sensing (may help with graphics when using maps?)
Fundamentals of Stream Ecology
In my spare time, other than playing video games, I keep up on scientific debates/findings/discoveries in evolution and climate change.
Again, while I can't help with programming, I can help by advising on biological concepts. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. I would love to help in anyway I can.

Forgot to mention that this is the first forum I've ever joined, so I apologize for any inconvenience caused by me due to my lack of experience with this stuff.

Wow, welcome to Thrive Mike!
It's spectacular to see you proficient in soo many sciences. Such knowledge always helps to ground the concept of the game in realism. If you want, I recommend you check out the Implementing Pollution thread, in which climate change is being discussed, as well as how the players civilization affects it.
For a quick debriefing of basic forum etiquette, make sure to try to avoid multi-posting, and posting on very old threads (ie necro-posting).
Look at how far we've come when people thought we'd get nowhere. Imagine how far we can go if we try to get somewhere.

Although you can't do programming, your skills will definitely be useful. Your knowledge in cell biology and general biology will help us make a realistic game but playable game.
As stated, you should edit your post instead of double-posting. It's available by clicking on "edit" in top right corner. You can state the edit at the bottom or add it in the text.
Have fun around!
