I wrote a response but internet problems lost it. Quickly:

  • Joke about me writing a rant about walkthrough space
  • "gameplay and Entertainment" should be changed to "gameplay and strategy" or something that says we give help with puzzles and tips for playing the game. What does "Entertainment" mean and why is it capitalised?
  • MainVisual sucks. Add2 looks cool but since it's exclusive XIII I don't like it. To keep neutrality we could stick to series-staples or just use main-series protagonists. We could also use Dissidia images that aren't as awful as the MainVisual and aren't an awful collection of images. JBed (talk) 23:47, August 29, 2012 (UTC)

Does the main Wikia site get a lot of hits seeing as there doesn't seem to be much content there? I doubt it'll affect the visitor numbers this way or that what our blurb is. The picture is more important that someone might click on it if it looks extra interesting, but the use of SE's images in our own advertising is NOT fair use. I don't know what route Wikia went to choose the images they chose, are they SE's promo pics or what.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 00:08, August 30, 2012 (UTC) EDIT: Looking at other sites' ads many seem to be characters and collections of characters in a collage. Looks all pretty terrible. What a mess.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 00:11, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

Well, we are already blessed (?) with being on the front page, but the image should probably change. The fact that using SE's images to advertise isn't fair use is a problem…I can't really think of any alternative, but anything is better than that collage they are using now.

I would suggest a better image that represents the series, but I can't really think of one. Since we get several images, maybe just take a few from several games so that there are a wide variety of games instead of trying to get the entire series onto one image?

Something simple yet eye-catching? This is a style example not a submission.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 02:06, August 30, 2012 (UTC) And to add to that we are advertising the wiki rather than the FF series, and while the two are obviously linked, it's the "promote the series" mentality that makes so many of the other ads on the main page so soulless. Lyric wiki has the best banner.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 02:08, August 30, 2012 (UTC)
