That's weird, I'm sure someone (probably LT) wrote here in this thread that if this project was ever completed I would get a project coordinator badge emblazoned under my username. And now I can't find the post...

Added a forum title for you, David. GLORY!

Also, I went through myself and manually added mascot pics into each of the entries, and also changed the companies in the "Created by" sections to the OCR organization links, or MobyGames/Wikipedia where applicable. My fault for not asking you guys to handle either before.

I'll see what to do with djp about an announcement.

Even though I haven't seen the mascots for several years now, (using the Dark Skin) this was an awesome idea and I'm glad to see it finally come to it's full, final realization. Nice work on those bios, folks!

Yeah, I was gonna bring that up. I for one appreciate said links changed to intrasite company pages, like how they (and ReMixed games) are linked in the Interview articles.

I'm glad the repeat mascots sharing one bio all show up on their respective pages. By that extension, if it's not too much trouble, could we have the Darkstalker mascots appear on the Darkstalkers Category page?

Personally, I think it's fair game if djp noted the clickability feature in a writeup. We can keep this thread open for bio readers to point out mistakes/broken links for us to fix, or general feedback.

You, Linearity, and I are the editors. Remember all the nitpicking we went through in getting them polished for the site? LT then graced us three with our haloed Wiki accounts because of his trust in us. :salute:

Also, congrats on your new EMBLAZONED title.

Wow, thanks man, for the title and all the other stuff you did. We didn't know how to handle the pics because you said DJP was going to code it so that there wouldn't be a pic in the actual bio, but when a mascot was clicked it would stay the same when the wiki page loaded. Something about the impact on bandwidth it would have to load two mascot images at the same time...eeeh. Anyway, thanks a lot for fixing it for us, and the other stuff.

I remember, I just don't remember watkinzez not being part of all that. Congrats to you too. *high fives*

I think my Toejam and Earl bio could do with some editing, still. I read it and didn't really like it very much. I'll try to do something about it soon...

Nah, too tough. Ultimately, we can bear the bandwidth, and the mascot changing up top made djp click through them en masse to randomly read the bios, so I see other fans doing the same. Thus it's not a bug, it's a feature. :-)

Yep, that's exactly what I did too. I thought that was cool.
