This is just a suggestion. Items needed: Book and Quill What to do: Write the contract down in the Book and Quill (remember the contract, see #4) Give the other party the unsigned Book and Quill Have them sign it after they have read and agreed to what is written in it (example: Title of book - AGREED, SIGNED, or whatever and the publisher of course will be the one to agree to the written contract) Get the book back and look over the contents to make sure the other party has not added or changed the contract (VERY IMPORTANT!) The holder of the contract must present to any mods, the signed contract in case of a dispute, as proof that a contract has been made and that both parties agreed to what is written (the contract then becomes precious......insert LOTR reference here) Reason for this: Hopefully, a better prevention of scams Better protection of both parties Once signed the contract cannot be changed and another contract can be used as a receipt that a contract was formed (whatever, don't ask, I just wanted to write more) To have another use for the Book and Quill I was bored and tired when I wrote this..........Do this, don't do this. Doesn't really matter. Have fun!
