I like the idea. I'll run it by DJP and see about implementing it eventually into the site design. If we get the okay, we can move this thread to Site Projects.

(site projects aren't necessarily remix albums; any project that's aimed at the betterment of OCR can go in there)


If he beats me to becoming a site projects leader dude, I swear I will cry :)

It's too bad that there's not a free version of milton that specializes in things of the non-porn nature.

Gah, it burns me up that there's a dozen or so Squaresoft characters up there, but only two are designed by Yoshitaka Amano and one of them is chibi.


Yeah, probably because Nomura's better.








:wink:


Nomura 5uXX0rz!!!11

Seriously, there's nothing interesting about his style. Amano's is both beautiful and original.

Graphical listing of the characters on first page


It's off topic, but I think the collective juxtapositioning of the characters like what Shnabubula did on the first page will make a cool background.

Joyzilla made one several months ago, but several characters have been added since, and it is out of date.

P.S. The title of this thread makes me laugh for some reason.

I find it sad that I know most of the characters on that list.


Oh not at all. It simply means that you're a true gamer like the rest of us 8)

That's what I originally thought when I saw this thread...I wonder how intentional the reference is though.

I talked to Dave, and he thinks the idea has some merit. Something we're thinking about doing is creating a small, dedicated, locked forum for mascot bios; clicking on a mascot will take you to a post where you can read the bio and click on pertinent links.

This kind of project really requires an organizer/editor. Dafydd, I know that you started this thread, so if you want that job, you can go ahead and take it, or you can choose one or two other forumers to help you out with the organizational and editing process. Things to keep in mind will be the format of the bio, clarity of the language used, and the length.

Of course, all forumers are encouraged to submit content, but that content may very well be edited and reformatted to fit forthcoming guidelines that an editor/editors will outline.

The bottom line is that this stuff will need to look professional, because it'll be a part of the site.

Let me know what you guys would like to do as far as organization is concerned, and then we can create a new organizational thread in the Site Projects forum. 8)

I'm up for creating bios and such that could be of interest (like the games they're from, particular notes about the characters, etc. - I think I should be able to do a good job with most of the RPG related characters, as well as the Nintendo ones; I can also do a good portion of the other ones too though, not just those).

So what is the standard layout for each bio?

Character
Game/Series
Company
Background/Bio

?



Also, who wants to see some horrible MSPaint/MS Photo Editor OCR wallpaper?!

What about links to the high-resolution version of the character pics? All of the characters on the banner were shrunk and edited in some way.

I'll help any way I can, though I'm not volunteering to be one of the main organizers since I, myself, am not organized nor do I have the amount of time and effort it would require to be in such a position.


I, too, am glad I'm not the only one who thought the thread title was a bit...sexually referenced XD

This kind of project really requires an organizer/editor.



There's always wiki software. ;) Seriously, I think there should be a subdomain wiki site of OCR for these character profiles. It'll make it so anyone can easily add their contributions and moderate others' contributions as well. Once everything's good I think you can lockdown the wiki so it's no longer editable.

Just a thought. I don't know all of the technicalities of administrating a wiki site. But if there's someone who does, it could make this whole process run smoothly.
