Mixed would enhance uniqueness, and aqua is such a pretty colour... aqua and something else?

I know I'll be drawing her too, but I'm anime-influenced.
Actually, I know a lot of characters with mixed eye colours... Vurmin on FA and dA, for example.. that's only one.. I tell yah, nothing unique about it anymore i.i

Well, David Bowie has different colored eyes, so that makes it cool x3

...even if he hasn't had any good songs since 1981

You sure they weren't coloured contacts?  ;p never trust colours in the eighties XD And even if he did, that doesn't make the mixed colourations any more unique ;p

I'm sure, I doubt he would be wearing contacts for 40 years. He started performing in the 60's, so it wouldn't have been an 80's thing.

Reguarding FT Mascot Poll
« Reply #107 on: December 26, 2006, 05:50:23 pm »
I'm sure many of you have realized that the FT Mascot vote was a little funky as far as the poll goes. Three species. One post in that thread stated that the poll did not represent what we all wanted.

Now, Before we get all happy about our new panda mascot, don't you think we should maybe think up a better system and recast the vote? Three choices does not a fair poll make, in my opinion

So, who agrees that the Mascot poll should maybe be thought through a little better and made to be a little less constricting on options?

I also want to state that I am not trying to upset  anybody, I just think that the poll was a bit unfair to the people who may have wanted something other than a Panda, badger, or Echidna.

there are alot of ways to do it but usually the ones that give what members want is really long and by the time it is done usually most members either get tired or bored of it. So I guess that is why they just made up 3 choices everyone had to vote from. Though they should have had a 4th option for other just in case if members didn't like the poll selection. Then they could have asked what the other members wanted. But that was the creators fault for not adding in that factor XP So I guess that is why some of you think it was unfair. But I am sure us mods and admins will discuss it in the next few days to figure out if we should stay with the original vote or not. But kangaroos still would have won if it was a option :/

I'll probably not change my vote, can't think of another species that aren't already taken that would fit better in my opinion. An "Other" option might be good to calm down people though. And if it gets the most of the votes, you could try adding the most popular animal from the people who vote "other" to the poll.

I might have come in a little late, but I didn't see the part where the species where suggested, only the poll with the three species.
I'm content with the red panda; it's cute and isn't a cliche idea. I will probably stick with that unless I see another animal I like more. Just saying that I support a recast.

You know...

We don't need a mascot.

Most of us who haven't voted probably haven't voted because, frankly, they don't care.

Do it again.  Take suggestions, vote again, leave the vote open for about a certain amount of time EXACT, and go from there.

You know, even if a mascot is voted, it doesnt have to be permanent.  It can always change by season, year, half year... whatever we want.

HERE IS A SUGGESTION:
For a certain period of time, let's say a month or so, how about leave some time for submissions?  Have people draw the mascot, crappy or not, its the CONCEPT that counts, and let THOSE become the votes, not the species itself.  After all, it seems kinda specieist IMO to pick a mascot for its species, not its charactersitics.  Create a char, make it exclusive to FT, and nominate them for, let's say, the 2007 Mascot or so.  After the submission period ends, cast a poll.

Idea?

I like that idea.
A year, or even half a year, is a good amount of time for a mascot to settle in, yet people don't get so attached that they miss it when it's gone.

Tres bien idea, Rei. That definitely makes a lot more sense than how the poll was in the first place :/ And now that you mention it, yeah, it does seem a bit funky to elect a mascot only for species and not character. Huzzah fer logic!
