Hey, whatever-the-fuck-it-was-called (RtV) worked out pretty well until Yosh decided to become unactive.

UHHhhh Ecuse me! ECUSE mE!
If I remember correctly, I was keeping RtV active and fun for months after Yosh left. Granted, I never Bonus room'd, and there wasn't much storyline development, but I kept it alive some.

I don't even know what it was, and it's the thing that sparked my idea in the first place.

rtv was the tits.

anyway BACK ON TOPICLOL

I can help with shit. Mainly, I think we should have the best walkthroughs and such. it wouldn't be too difficult if you set them up as interactive, you know, so different parts are pages you click on form the main walkthrough page rather than going to gameFAGS and ctrl-f'ing all day. You can do mouseover windows that show graphics, additional details, etc. We can do a more comprehensive job of providing level-by-level average stats for characters as well as additional factors for debate such as skills, weapons, base weapon levels, you know, all that stuff. Would be useful if debaters could simply go straight to us to see a comprehensive page with all the tedious info needed for debate.

As good as many of the other FE fansites are with content, nobody really has this down properly. Sure, you cna go to Serenes to get this stuff, but you gotta patch it together from a bunch of different pages. And they're all different, with different formats. If we were consistent and uniform, it'd be a major plus. We're already pretty dashing, we just need the content to back it up.

Don't even bother with the review, just know that he's insinuating the game's theme.

I was playing off the minor typo of RPS (rather than RPs) which was Borderlands' advertising gimmick, a "Role-Playing Shooter." My jokes need to be less subtle. :\

+1 to Yosh just for using "dashing".

Honestly, before we even get into "How can we be better/unique/etc... ?" we should get the old stuff back up.

I think we tried to do this back in 2007, but then all of the staff disappeared and it never went anywhere.

If we can get a few people together to focus on all of the different aspects that would be involved (if we're talking full walkthrough here, then that's basically everything that you can think of), I think it'd be a really good idea. And I could make it look fucking sexy.

The walkthroughs would be a lot harder to put together as opposed to the debate stats. For the most part, the debate stats are just info that's already out there but needs to be put together. With loveliness.

Personally, I think it'd be cool if the page for this (for radiant dawn, for instance) would show all of the characters' names in a sidebar. When you mouse over a character's name, a small popup window shows their face. click the name, and the page displays their information, but of course the sidebar remains intact, so you can click somebody else to bring up their info.

Or another approach for better useability in debates would be a checkboxes system. For instance, you've got the sidebar with all the names and they all have checkboxes. Say I want to compare Zihark and Mia. I check their boxes and both of their info is displayed. Or even make it so that if you check a character, additional checkboxes come up for you to check off which info about the character you want displayed - Chapter Availability, Average Stats, Growths, etc etc etc.

Hmm, it'd be a bit of a nightmare to code the framework for such a system. It's all possible, though, and could look pretty nice. And once it's set up, it'd just be a matter of entering all of the data into the database tables, which even a monkey would be capable of doing.

I could pass for a monkey.

And yeah, I see whatcha mean about it being a serious commitment to code, but... any really nice system that gets us attention would be ;)
