I changed the title to make it more consistent with Bug's Marvel version. :p
First of all, I'm getting rid of the poll format. It was getting too long and didn't give me the information I wanted anymore. I'm also going to divide the characters up in themes now rather than by allegiances. I am still interested in hearing which ones people like and which ones people don't (though I've omitted my least favorites anyway). Larger groups will be divided up further though, at least Batman and the JLA, possibly Superman.
Another thing, I don't actually know how many people checked the last blog since it made popular status, but I've slowed down because of school and other things.
Lastly, I'm working on a new theme which I want to unveil all at once (at least the first wave, but it might be one-shot) which will take time away. If you want a hint, it's something that LEGO has done very recently but never like this and I'm expanding the horizons a bit.
Batman Family & Other Heroes
Sixties, Secret Identities, and random
- You are allowed to make suggestions, but as suggested by the IP (who is smarter than I am) I'm making guidelines to hopefully make my job(?) easier, but also to help you.
- First of all, I'm not taking requests, only suggestions. The difference is small though, so don't worry about this too much. I just liked the way Bug made it sound. :P
- I know I've made a big deal about this in the past, but please do not use the word should. I have explained it badly before and I think I can do it well now, so if you need that that's why the sub-bullet is a textwall.
- There is really only one proper way to answer a question, with an answer. For example, "What would you like for supper?" "You should make pasta." Should is used to express a command, which is what you were asked to do, so it's okay. However, I'm not asking you. I'm saying you can. There are actually two ways to a suggestion though. Either you ask, or you demand. Using should would make it sound like you are commanding, whereas asking is more polite.
- It's actually rare that somebody suggests a character I've never considered. To make a successful suggestion, try giving a reason. Honestly, the only two requests/suggestions I recall which actually gave me a desire to make the figure were Cyborg and Captain Marvel Jr..
- Don't give entire lists. I mean, usually there are one or two that might give me an interest, but it really feels overwhelming. Try to limit yourself to one or two at a time. Three or four is okay, but I'd prefer if you could narrow it down.
- No doesn't always mean no. On several occasions, it just means not now. What means no then? When the character is listed/is added here. I'm not going to expect you to memorize the list and it is incomplete, but just try not to repeat yourself.
- If I don't reply, it doesn't mean I haven't seen it. It just means I have nothing to say. That's not usually a bad thing.
- If I ask you to shut up, even if it's nicely, shut up. (This is targeted at one person in particular. If you are reading this, you probably aren't him/her.)
