Replace the second, third and fourth paragraphs of “Marks” with:-

Any Crook may announce their intention to tackle a Mark by PMing the Mastermind with a statement to this effect, and optionally a list of Crooks who they are willing to collaborate with against this Mark. A Squad is a group of Crooks who are all willing to collaborate with one another against the same Mark, and who are not willing to collaborate with any other Crooks. If a Crook has announced an intention to tackle a Mark but it is not willing to collaborate with anybody, then they are a one-person Squad.

The Mastermind may resolve any Mark which is more than 48 hours old by randomly selecting a Squad from those Squads who are collaborating against that Mark, and whose members meet the requirements of the Mark; this Squad completes the Job. If no Squads meet the requirements, the Job fails. The Mastermind must then make a comment to the Mark post announcing the result.

If the Job is completed, then the Crooks in the selected Squad should privately agree how best to allocate the rewards. If they have done so, any of the Crooks in that Squad may make a comment to the Mark story post to detail the reward allocation; and once all Crooks in that Squad have marked that post with a FOR vote symbol, the Mastermind can release the rewards as dictated. Any reward not allocated is put in the Scrapheap.

In “The Black Mark”, replace “a GNDT comment with the names of each of the Crooks involved in that Job” with “a GNDT comment with the names of each of the Crook who announced an intention to tackle that Mark”, and “a list of the names of the Crooks involved in that failed Job” with “a list of the names of the Crooks who announced an intention to tackle that Mark”.

Rewriting the Mark rule to be closer to how it seems to be being played; Crooks announce who they’re working with, and if the winning team agree to work together then they get the prize. (Under the current rule it seems to be possible for anyone to tag along, even if they’re bringing no skills to the table, and get a veto option on splitting the loot.)
