In response to your post, if you respect what was done, could you possibly comment on the work as it is now and offer constructive criticism?
I would like to know the names that are being selected for a whole race that is a GW icon to myself and many other players. That's all.
But if that is the secret Mosc is making it out to be, just continue on your own merry way and I will go mine.
Here is how I envisioned things going:
1. People could discuss the 'true name' of the Squats (the name they called themselves) here on the forum. Ã‚Â Anyone and everyone could participate by voicing their support or dissent or their own ideas. Ã‚Â
2. With some luck a few front runners would become obvious.
3. The creative team (edited
) would make their own vote. Ã‚Â They might pick the #1 choice or the #2 choice or whatever they think fits the body of work
I have sacrificed dozens of hours and hundreds of dollars AT MY OWN EXPENSE so that the community can have a continued set of books to enjoy, and it isn't enough.
I have offered the ability to print fan-made books at great cost of time and inconvenience to myself and great convenience to anyone else, and it isn't enough.
So, how about this one... Ã‚Â Let's just change up the rules. Ã‚Â I am going to request every book, starting with Siege
, have a public poll done on various things that I think are 'controversial'. Ã‚Â After all, this is CANON were dealing with, right? Ã‚Â This is the all-important-life-and-death decision we have to make and no one man or one team should be able to make such important decisions about a book that will be read by thousands of geeks across the globe. Edited
, you can just have some trust that somebody else other than yourself might actually make a decision that might come out right. Ã‚Â Edited
Squats will still be Squats at the end of the day.
. Ã‚Â You know how many things I demanded from E&C for his work? Ã‚Â
1. That it meets the IP guidelines to make sure nobody gets sued.
2. That is has a little tiny symbol on the back cover to show it was printed through Raiders & Crusaders. Ã‚Â
That's it. Ã‚Â I had ideas, I had suggestions, and I offered help. Ã‚Â I drummed up some artwork for him too. Ã‚Â I didn't pressure him into sending me information for approval or taking public votes about the name 'Mossinians' or call for a mandated number of pictures or paragraphs.
I gave him the respect that he deserved after spending the time and energy of making one of these things.Edited
