I have an idea for the Kingdom Hearts Forum. You know Goldenboko's quiz threads, I think we should start one there. I can also take the Crystal Chronicles forum with a thread about Ring of Fates.

Rye

That's a good idea! :] I have some a good idea bubbling for the art forum: A thread about each artist's favorite medium (paint, pastel, tablet, etc), and to show an example of their work best highlighting their skill in that medium. It's interactive and I've never seen a thread like it in the Art Forum.

As a former player of Final Fantasy XI, I can take that forum. Also, as a writer, I'm certain I can come up with something sufficient for the writer's corner. I'm open to posting in other fora as-needed, but those are the two that immediately spring to mind for me.

I think we should take it a little slower, to be honest, unless you're 100% sure you have a good thread and you couldn't improve it. We have 24 hours, there's no rush. But once you've posted your thread, you're STUCK with it, so I wouldn't just post them right away. You might get a better idea later. Just putting that out there for you all. :]

I honestly can't think of anything I could improve on the thread I posted in art, so I posted it in. The other two though are tricky. I'll be taking a while on those.

What is your favorite art medium? Show us! NOW! (http://forums.eyesonff.com/artists-forum/116373-what-your-favorite-art-medium-show-us-now.html#post2468618)

I have an idea for study hall to make a thread about tutoring - asking about people who have tutored and have been tutored, what was worked well, what didn't, etc. I'm tutoring a girl right now in English and History so I think this would be a good thread for me to make. :jess:

I'm the self-proclaimed Queen of the BushHags, after Necronopticous' Final Fantasy IV: Ah! The Power of Cheese, so I believe I should be able to handle the Final Fantasy IV forum. I'll have to think of something interesting to create a thread about, just so it isn't just a thread about how awesome Kain's hair really is (even if it's the truth). But since we have about 24 hours, I'll manage to find something interesting and unique.

I don't have any preference for the other forums.

I had a really awesome idea for a General Chat thread, I'm thrilled.

I want to make an EoFF version of Post Secret. No one has ever done it before. Every EoFFer who wishes to participate can make an anonymous text confession or send in a post card (a photoshop sort of post card, or a picture of a real one.) Those who are comfortable can do it by PM, but for those who are nervous can send it to me by email. I won't look up their email if it's used here, but I'd recommend using an account that most people don't know of here. They will be posted in the thread.

The rules are obviously that they cannot be insulting or offensively against the rules of EoFF (ie: no porn, no offensive language, etc)

Anyone like this?

I'll pass on that name, Rye, if only because I'm not into yuri/yaoi that much.

So, on the topic of remakes... Well, keep in mind I am in a serious discussion/debate mood tonight. I was thinking of using this idea for the FFIV forum, but it could easily apply to any FF that gets remade, or that gets a sequel or prequel like the FFVII franchise, for example.

Anyway, my idea is about discussing the reasons why fans sometime get divided about remakes and sequesl/prequels to their favourite games. It's something that passionates people because I've seen a lot of blogs about the subject. When Square-Enix decides to remake a Final Fantasy game or give a sequel or prequel to one, are they really doing what the fans want? Is it okay to expend on the universe of that game, even if it means destroying plot points that were originally viewed as canon, sometimes for over a decade, but no longer are considered as such under the new (official) storyline? And while the company holds the copyright and the games on paper, does it only belong to them, especially when sometimes it's the fans and not SE's marketting department that have kept the interests for those game going for years by doing such things as building websites, drawing fanarts, writing fanfictions, etc?

Hmm, maybe it's too complicated to talk about?

Thats sounds like a great idea, but not just for one game, lets put it in general Square Enix or General Final fantasy, because that way the discussion can broaden to more people, and I think the discussion would evolve better in one of those forums.

I also came up with an idea for the Video Game music forum. in some games, there is special music used for a few battles. Was this a good idea or not? It is another debate that I think has a lot of potential and would love to see occur.

Takara
04-09-2008, 03:52 AM
As I said, that was my original idea for the FFIV forum, but I've suggested it so it can be used for General FF or General SE.

I like this idea for the Video Game Music forum. It's actually something I've pondered for a while, so that's probably going to be something I'll yap a lot about if it's posted. xD

Rye? Maybe it's just the language barrier kicking in, but can you elaborate on the secret post idea? I'm afraid you've lost me there.

I've had another idea, this time for General Gaming: a discussion about the future of online gaming, text games vs graphical games, multi-player vs solitary, paid vs free, etc. I must admit it's a subject that passions me, being a volunteer staff for an online game. Any thoughts?

Sure thing!

PostSecret is a website where people send in anonymous post cards with a secret/confession/or just ideas and comments. I thought it'd be neat if we had EoFFers sending in stuff in a similar fashion to me anonymously, and I'd post them.

I think people need to lighten up about the selection for the team name. In the end, I doubt it matters. I don't really care what we are, as long as it's not something so absolutely boring as Group A.

Takara
04-09-2008, 04:05 AM
I get the feeling Ouch!'s comment is directed at me. I'm not against a Silly, light-hearted team name. I just think it's something that should be more representative of the group. ;)

Edit: I've just thought of something for The Lounge. Again, a debate, this time sparked by some discussions I've seen going on at deviantART about mature content. Like why anything with a sexual theme is generally frowned upon in most western societies, even if the subject is treated tastefully, but no one bats an eyelash about excessive violence and gore in movies and other media.

I told you I was in a serious discussion mood tonight. Either that, or my age is showing. (*sobs* I have white hair, I'm starting to get wrinkles, and my breasts are sagging.)

So I'm fleshing out my idea for the writer's corner. As a writer, one of the things that interests me most is how a writer deals with the issue of author's original intent. From a reader's point of view, author's intent may be considered, but all writing allows for individual interpretation outside of the author's original intent. I'd like to see how other writers thing about the dilemma each author must consider when writing any piece of work.

Edit: I'm giving my vote of approval for Rye's thread ideas.

Guys I'm heading off to bed.

Remember the ideas have to be original, so the general forums become exceedingly difficult (especially Eyes on Each Other where even I've exhausted much of my 'original and edgy' topics). If you want at it, go for it. If not, I don't mind taking one for the team.

This goes for anything. You can assign me 3 more gaming forums to do. I'll find something to say in say, Chrono Trigger forums if I have to.

edit:

Apologies that I wasn't around at the beginning of this. Normally I'll be online until about 1am, but I was very tired last night!

Edit: Right. I figured I should give you guys a heads-up of what my ideas are before I post them. The ideas I had were as follows.

FFIX: A thread about 'useless' skills that people don't tend to use (e.g. Freya's Six Dragons) or skills that might be used at the start of the game and then not again (e.g. Freya's Lancer) and whether people found a use for them later in the game or found uses for them in general.

My thread in the writer's corner is up. (http://forums.eyesonff.com/writers-corner/116384-authors-original-intent.html#post2468971)

I'm having quite a hard time thinking of something original to add to the FFXI forum. Quite honestly, the whole forum is quite a bit of rehash--same questions popping up every so often. It's usually a cycle of people ignoring the FAQ thread (and forum description) and asking if it costs money to play, people complaining about how it sucks away their, people announcing that they're quitting, and then the inevitable "Crap, I'm coming back" threads.

For some time now, Square Enix has been hinting at their new MMORPG. I vaguely remember being promised news in February, but such news never came. I think it might be interesting make a thread in the FFXI Forum regarding how each person thinks SE could improve upon the mechanics of FFXI for when they create their next MMO. However, since we know that the game is not FFXI-2, the mechanics could be entirely different, the game could be completely unrelated to FFXI, and then it would likely be better suited for General SE. I could always just structure the post around an assumption that the two will be similar, though. Thoughts?

Yes, apologies. I only noticed once I'd posted. Just threw the ideas there for the sake of it, but others have their own ideas I'm happy for them to act upon them. What I get for living in Britain's timezone.

I'd like to throw in support for the the thread suggestions for music, FFVIII (I have the utmost faith that PG can do something amusing with that), the Lounge, and FFXIII.

I strongly advise against the espers topic for FFXII. We're supposed to be making (at least somewhat) original threads, and there was already a huge debate about the usefulness of espers and whether or not people chose to use them in FFXII.

Heath
04-09-2008, 10:53 AM
An idea I had for a thread in the FFXII forum was about to what extent people found the environment to be more engrossing. I personally found Ivalice in FFXII to be one of the most visually and aurally impressive I've ever seen in a game and found that the music of various dungeons/locales such as the Sochen Cave Palace really added to my enjoyment of the game. I'd be happy to make a thread along those lines if anyone thinks that's suitable. I'd be interested to see if anyone else felt that way regardless. Threw that in there as an alternative to the Esper thread.

Edit: Also, I really like your FFXI idea, Ouch.

I definitely think this is a much more suitable option than the esper discussion. While talking about the value of espers is a good topic, it's been done before. We were told explicitly to come up with original threads, right? Doing something that's already been thoroughly discussed is like shooting oneself in the foot, no?

Also, don't forget to link to the threads in the task thread as Miriel instructed. I made a post in that thread linking to all of our submissions with credits to each member. Since I don't foresee much sleep any time soon, I'll do my best to keep editing it in as more of these threads get posted.

Strikethrough = thread made. Someone's name after forum = idea submitted by that person/person said they'll make that thread. As far as I'm aware that's everything suggested thus far. I've put that there so we can decide on forums that have yet to have suggestions/people and also so if there's multiple ideas (e.g. FFXII) then we can sort that one out.

Edit: Added links there. If you want, we'll use this thread to link to all our threads. If not, I'd at least like to organise things slightly better.

I have an idea for feedback. Someone might want to suggest that EoFF start enforcing the proper use of the ellipsis. The bastardization with only two stops is starting to make me cry.

I put you down for FFXII because I thought it was you that suggested the Esper thread and for CT forum (with a question mark) because I thought you said you wouldn't mind. I'll take the CT/CC forum if I can think of something.

I'll edit my post accordingly.

04-09-2008, 07:23 PM
Right. Edited appropriately, Chaos, thanks. As I said, the thread was a bit difficult to sift through, hence why I put that post together in the first place. Also popped your name down for FFVII, PG.

An idea that popped into head about CT/CC would be something relating to New Game+ though I'll admit that I'm at a slight disadvantage for that forum as I've only played CT. Alternatively I could go for a dull thread about 3 Prism Helms vs. 1 Prism Dress.

Edit: For the FFVII subforums then again, I wouldn't mind taking them at a push. Admittedly I've not played DoC so I'd be more comfortable with AC (which I've seen). However, the thread idea I had was relating to how well the new entries in the FFVII franchise has enhanced individual experiences of the game, whether they've cleared up questions with the plot or created more, that sort of thing. I'd be quite interested in whether I was the only one who seemed to have more rather than less questions in my mind. If no one else wants one of the two forums, I'll be happy to take them provided people are happy with that idea.

We could make a game in the graphic design forum. You start with a 250 x 550 white box, and you get to add one thing into the box using any program, but only one thing. I only have MS Paint though, so I can't really start the thread, just putting the idea out.

I kind of changed a few things. I was messing about with the little white box and so I put in a chocobo. All of a sudden ideas just sprung to mind.

**as far as I am aware these forums have not been taken. It's kind of confusing to tell who's doing what, so please correct me if I have made a mistake :redface:**

Feedback Forum:
Is Eyeson's Best Knight really the best way to choose a Cid's Knight? What's wrong with the existing practice of doing it secretly, to avoid feelings being hurt?

Final Fantasy I:
If you could add one thing to the game, and take away something else, what would you add and remove? I'd add the ability to change class whenever you wanted, including "demoting" your characters, for example going from Knight back to Fighter. I would probably remove random encounters and replace it with a system similar to Chrono Trigger's.

Final Fantasy V:
Useful secondary skills for magic casters. I ask everyone what they like to give to their magical classes. I for one am a fan of the Geomancers' !Earth ability but it would be interesting to see what everyone else can come up with.

I could say something like X-Fight and 2-swords is an obvious one, but how about some more obscure combos that are effective? And then I could mention my favorite !Earth-Magic with a bit of explanation as to why it is good.

As for FFI, I tried to think of something that hadn't been done there before. There's a lot of talk about favorite parties and classes and so on, so I wanted to go with something about the gameplay itself if that makes any sense.

I agree with the feedback idea. Chaos Is The Key is literally having to leave now and has an idea for an FFI thread. He said he'll be without 'net until the end of the competition afterwards, so he's going to post an FFI given that he's only posted the one thread thus far.

04-09-2008, 10:21 PM
Right guys, ideas I've had:

A) Magus-Frog = Discussion of which people prefer: Magus joining the party or Frog killing Magus. Discussion also of whether you think Magus is able to attain redemption for his villainy by joining the party.

B) Prism Helms vs. Prism Dress = What to do with the Rainbow Shell. Think it's a pretty boring idea myself, but an idea nonetheless.

C) New Game+ = A discussion of whether or not people made use of New Game+, what they liked about it and what anything they'd have liked in it that wasn't given.

Which do you guys prefer? A, B, C or none? Obviously we want the most original and potentially great thread.

Any word from Linus yet, I can't see any threads made by him in XIII Forum? :confused: If he doesn't turn up maybe a few hours before this round is to be completed or possibly earlier we may need to post his threads. So after everyone is done with theirs and he still hasn't shown up then I suggest that we start thinking of threads for his part.

Yeah, we need Linus to get on and make a thread or two. Speaking of threads, Hey, I never noticed that before.. (http://forums.eyesonff.com/final-fantasy-x-2/116440-hey-i-never-noticed-before.html#post2469527) The X-2 thread. Thats 4 from me, I cant make any more threads, but I'll post any ideas that come to me. :p

Ouch!

I can try to come up with something for Final Fantasy Tactics. While I'm not the most well versed in the subtleties of the game (I love it, but I'm not a crazy, crazy completionist), I think I could come up with something relating to its plot.

I think a discussion about the merits of the new PSP translation would be interesting. I know it's come up in other discussions, but as far as I know there's not a thread strictly comparing the two on based on the translation. Please, correct me if I'm wrong. Anybody think that might be a decent idea?

I don't really know much about FF Tactics but it sounds like a good thread, especially if it's original. :)

Thread about Gogo any good and what skills you'd set them up with? Don't recall one. Naturally called 'Wake me up before you Gogo." If no one has any better ideas for it, I'll make it. I know Gogo isn't an oft-used character, but I always use him for the final dungeon.

I like using Gogo too. Sounds like a good idea.

Here's an idea for the FF II forum, the shrine of the dead. A discussion if the amount of death in the game, and if the sheer amount was necessary or not.

I'm going to go ahead and post up the FFT thread unless someone objects soon.

I haven't added it in because I wasn't sure if Linus was actually going to do that or not. He seemed like he was pretty happy to do it for any forum we left over, so I've left it blank in case there was another forum that his haiku thread could fit in.

I'll pick up the slack and take a forth if necessary, but I'm not very familiar with the remaining sections, I'm afraid. I've never completed FFII, III, or VII: DoS. I could pick up the FFXIII thread if necessary. I know just about as much about it as everyone else.

That sounds good Rye, want to make it?

Linus
04-10-2008, 04:41 AM
Ok, home now.

I will gladly make the threads in each of those forums, but know nothing about any of them.

So, I think I'll make my haiku thread in FFXIII.

Dirge of Cerberus... I'll... ask which character you think deserved the spotlight more than Vincent...

FFII I'll ask peoples' thoughts on whether Square was intending to turn the titles into such a longstanding franchise when they made this game, or if they were just looking to make a quick buck based on the presumably surprising popularity of the first role-playing game.

And Final Fantasy III I just don't have a clue.

Takara
04-10-2008, 04:44 AM
For FFII... I don't know, maybe I got inspired by Maxx' thread he made in the FFV forum... How about an appreciation thread for one of the underrated characters, like Guy?

Edit: Ah, Linus posted while I was writing this. I like his suggestion better. :)

For III, do you think it was a good idea to give the four playable characters names?

Linus
04-10-2008, 04:49 AM
I don't quite understand what you mean.

They gave the characters names in II. Could you name them yourself in III, or did they come with preset names?

qwertysaur
04-10-2008, 04:52 AM
In the original release of III, the four onion knights had no preset names. In the DS rerelease, the characters were named Luneth, Arc, Refia and Ingus. The thread could be weather or not square should have made as many changes to the game as they did.
