All O.M. Plans must be Safe, Accurate, Successful, and Properly Formatted. It is our intention to work with you on creating the most useful product to our Members. Create the type of content you would feel your family could use and that you would use, and you cannot go wrong. Omega Morphosis wants the best content for each task but will be more lenient if you are the first one to create that content. There will be times when we ask you to do better. We hope you understand that this is only to acquire the best Plans in the world. We know you can do it. We believe in you, You are the Architects of our Omega Morphosis Experience.
