Well, actually, it isn't. I want this to have a lot more creative process behind it, so we can actually make a quality fakedex that involves real work. Did you read carefully? I'm not trying to be rude, but if you did, you'd notice there is actually rules for this thing. And yes, I did make half of these rules up on the spot.
1. Each person's responsible for their own design, meaning you cannot modify another person's design without their permission.
2. As this is a sprite thread, criticism is inevitable and it's expected you handle it maturely.
3. This is not a chat thread.
4.Since we want to be original, we can only have so many Fakemon based on certain animals. We can't have too many canines, for example.
5. As I said before, I will not accept verbal put-downs of ideas. We obviously can't use every idea, so rather than rejecting them, we should decide what's best for our region.
6. No new types. New types are always really lame and it's hard to define how to classify a Fakemon as a type that we know nothing about.
One or two of these is specifically mentioned in the first post, and believe me, since I was expecting this type of response I've read through it 2-3 times already. And if you had it in this format that would be one thing, but having it surrounded by "lets be a group and make a great dex" doesn't help the cause.
I don't really see how I'm being cheesy for having a giant "pep talk",
"It is meant for us to all gather together"
"It will, however, help bring us all together."
"We're all going to get together"
"We need to feel like a team"
"don't feel bad"
If I'm being honest, its a freaking spriting community. Were not going to war or part of some kids club, you do a sprite and go.
because I'm really just explaining how real design teams usually work and how the process of thought and creation would go. It's best we design Pokemon ideas together, but relegate the different ideas based on our areas of expertise. So somebody who's awesome at making cute fakemon could design some of those, whereas somebody that does "wacky" ones could design those kind. I'm shooting for at least a few Fakemon designed by everyone. And yes, I know I'll have to be lenient with the rules. If somebody just wants to submit any old sprite, they can as long as they actually put effort into describing what it is, the rhyme or reason, and improve the design if people think it needs work.
Well, as much as I could disagree with much of this, I don't really have to. The fact it has 20 posts with not one single sprite says it all. I could have done this in mine, but discussion was the main thing I had to compromise on with zephyr flare, perhaps sweet may was a bit more forgiving.
Its actually ironic the main people I closed the previous thread for are saying how great this is because they can just post ideas and leave. However I will edit this post with a sprite in a bit, so maybe people will actually do something.
