Ah, I see. I'm glad the site is open for those of you who are "better" than the rest of us! Let us not forget that there was a time when users on this site once came here as a way to feel accepted among like-minded people. What about the people who answered this poll: [LINK] ? I suppose we are really making people feel welcome when some of us are "better" than others. This was a place where people could share ideas and thoughts in an intelligent way with people who (at least sometimes) understood them.
I'm not saying Pseudo should open up the floodgates to the new site before it is ready to be fully functioning. What I am saying, however, is that by your own words, the new site is more active than this one, so why keep out the community that for so long was accepted for who they were, instead of casting them aside as the "not as good" users?

It seems that those of us who have been left behind are a bit perturbed at the current situation. I have enjoyed this site since I joined a few months ago. There seemed to be a good, close fellowship among the users on this site unlike that of any other. Why then, does it suddenly feel as though we have been put into a caste of "untouchables"? Are we not worthy enough to be included in this grand new scheme of design? I can understand opening the doors to a few beta testers here and there. But when did this turn from a "community" to "an elitist organization who believes you should be at the right place at the right time to be able to come along"? Somehow, that seems to go against everything the site originally stood for. I'm glad that the close friends and "elite users" have been give the privileged to move forward with what is left of the "community". Something about this just doesn't seem right...

Is it absolute that only one payment platform is needed? I can't speak for regions outside the United States, but PayPal seems to be the most popular and widely used method. It offers a great familiarity factor as well as being trusted and efficient. That being said, I believe PureMadness makes a very good point with the boku platform. Would it be possible to offer both platforms? "If you would like to support the site and purchase fig coins via credit card use option A (PayPal). If you would prefer to pay using your mobile device, choose option B (Boku)". I'm not sure of the logistics involved, but it would seem that the ability to offer the most options would yield the best results.

I'm pretty sure a main reason for the post was because Pseudo mentioned he felt as though he was leaning toward the new idea, you know, the rookie archaeologist. The point of considering a new idea at all is because, for one reason or another, he seems to believe it will make the game better in some way. Maybe going with Francis wouldn't be easier for him. It is actually quite possible that the very topic you are commenting on has been covered, in length, in the very article above your post! I might even be able to find a few points he makes about reasons for considering switching from Francis to a young avatar, but only if I look REALLY hard. And actually, the "crowd" you speak of seems to like the idea of Francis more, according to the polls at least. I didn't have time to vote in the poll, and I believe that playing as a set personality of a major character, in a game as diverse and unique as a monster catcher, while possibly an original idea, tends to generally lack the customization one might enjoy from viewing themselves in the character.

On a side note, I'm a bit sick of people posting comments with the basic translation of "Well I can see points for both sides, do what you want." If that is all you have to say, it is probably a better use of your time to simply read through the comments and see how many people have already said what you are saying. I don't mean to be harsh, I'm just a bit perturbed today, I suppose.

I'm not one to criticize, but Pseudo has obviously been working his tail off to this point. If he DOES include the option letting the protagonist be either male or female, the plot scripts he writes will have to reflect the gender differences. On top of this, if the protagonist actually speaks, then how do you determine their personality? A woman would address some situations different than a man would, and vice versa. You couldn't simply write dialog for one gender and transplant it to the other. You're not just asking him to add a few texts of dialogue, you are asking for an almost entire rewrite of the script (I doubt the plot would change, but conversation and interaction would have an entirely new dynamic).

As far as a personality test to determine your avatar's element AND it leading to the monster you get. I actually like that idea. It would seem that it could justify Francis' decision to give you a monster to train in the first place. I can see it now... "Well you certainly have a FIERY personality! I think this little monster would suit you well! (Then you are given the fire element starting monster). It seems like that part might actually work nicely into justifying the starting monster. But I also know some people are picky as hell and want to choose for themselves.

This comment will probably be neither constructive or meaningful, so you have my preemptive apologies. Pseudo, you games have become, hands down, my favorite to play. It started with mardek and has since escalated to being a general fan in all ways. I understand that the effort required to produce a quality game is nothing short of enormous and you thus have my complete respect in what you do. That being said, I believe a joint venture between you and Firequill would be a crowing achievement starting what would hopefully be a partnership of brilliance not only in game style and play but also in creativity and art showmanship. The best children's authors find an illustrator who can deliver the needed artwork for them. In that sense your venture is not all that much different. You are a creative juggernaut when it comes to producing high quality and enjoyable games. I know there may be both personal and professional obstacles to overcome if you were to team up with your girlfriend, but it would seem that such a match would take your games to an unprecedented level of amazing. I look forward to your future games regardless of if the pairing happens or not, but such a joint venture I believe would spark a whole new enjoyment both for the game play and possibly the work that goes into it.

I'll keep this short and sweet to avoid a lengthy, trying-to-be-intellectual post. I love the ideas all the way around. I LOVE the idea of the "Appearance" tab in the person's profile so you can see their view vs reality. I'm not really adding a whole lot of substance I know, but I did want to voice my support for the ideas you've suggested and for the site in general. Wonderfully done so far and we look forward to more great things to come!

In addition, as far as I know, Android runs compatible with windows technology AND Flash. I could be completely wrong on this, but since Android is owned essentially by Google I would think the cross-over would be less difficult and arduous than switching over to iOS with apple.

New member to the site, but a long time fan of the games Pseudo. I've read through the comments on here and I'm sorry to say I wasn't around on here early enough to vote in the poll. From all I can tell in the developer world though, it seems android devices offer the most accessibility to users and the most control by developers. Not only could you release the "app" through your own site, but you could add it to any of the various markets out there as well to get the game more notoriety (android market, amazon app market, etc.). Not to mention, you could also in theory release the game through Kongregate's mobile site as well. Though it would be free though Kong's site, it may be a good way to throw a test game out there and see how it goes. I know that the android markets and devices are growing more popular each day (seeing as I just purchased my own android device and can vouch for their growing fan base). IF you do indeed decide to enter the world of creating games via apps for mobile devices, it would seem the android route is the right choice for any developer.
