--- FAQ ---

Q: What is the OCR Mascot Bio Project all about?

A: The OCR Mascot Bio Project has enabled visitors of the site to click the mascots (game characters) in the upper right corner of the page and read about who they are, what games they appear in, and links to remixes of those games. Also, the bio pages include links to other pages for more information on the characters. Go here for more info.

Q: How can I help?

A: We would appreciate being informed of any typos, dead links or other problems in the bios (unless already listed under the known issues at the bottom of this post). If new games are added to OC ReMix and any of the mascot characters appear in them, please inform us so that we can update the appearance lists. Every so often, the site staff adds new mascots to the site - when this happens, you are welcome to help us write bios for them. Please read this before you do: http://ocremix.org/info/Mascot_Project_FAQ_and_Guidelines

For reference, the following mascots bios are claimed and in progress:

There was a forum where they were trying to name all of them. It may be around here somewhere....

It doesn't mean much, but I'd be willing to help as much as I can, but I doubt I'm half as competent as others are.

You always get the easy assignments... :P

-Edit-

Shall we create the new thread in the newbies forum?

Perhaps the thread creator can accept PMs from the rest of the people involved in the project, and thusly, constantly and consistantly update the first post of said thread until all characters have been identified?

There should be a video game character wiki site that has profiles of all the characters. Then all you'd have to do is link the pic in the corner to their wiki profile...

I'm sure each of these characters has a wiki.

Except maybe the car from NFSU2 or whatever racing clone it's from.

Shnabubula, can you put those all in a zip file and stick it somewhere so I can dl them all at once? If not, no biggie I'll grab 'em one by one, but I'd appriciate it if you would.

That's alright, Google can help too.

As would I like to. If we are able to make this a site project, we should divi up the characters to everyone that wants to help. Or perhaps just have everyone contribute whatever info they can and have some people collect, sort, and organize info for each character. Nice idea/work to this thread's creator :nicework:

Now THAT'S what I'm talking about...New people that contribute in a positive way

Well... it was mainly aimed at the people who run this site, but of course, letting the lesser beings in this community do the work is an excellent idea. I just thought it's kinda annoying when characters you know by neither name nor game show up and there's really no way to find out. The least you could expect is to have a name pop up when you point your mouse over it, like when I hold my mouse pointer over one of the emoticons here on the left, it says "Title: Crying or Very sad". I'm glad people are glad I brought this up. I have no idea of how to organise things at all. I can write about characters and stuff, do research on their stories and games and so on but I'm not a web designer.

Well, a list of names for all of them was made not that long ago. I'll see if I can find it.

Edit: Found the thread. The lists are on page 6 & 7.

I think it's been said multiple times that a list has been made, but that wasn't what was asked - the point is to not only have the name for the character, but the background information as well, like system, game, company, and a short blurb on the character's role.

Well, I'm sure alot of other people could do it, but I'm willing to put up a little website on like geocities or something to hold a complete list, with pics and all the accumulated stories. Thus is about the extent of my skills...with my primary computer dead, I can't do too much else. But no worries, my system will be ressurected in a few days...and then I can really go to town on it.

I'm astounded by how few of those I've even seen on the the site, nevermind recognize. At least 15-20 of those I don't think I've ever spotted.

I wouldn't be of much help since I only know a handful of them.
