True to my long-standing tradition, I forgot VNDB's birthday again. Just like last year and the year before that. I'm already starting to feel pity for my non-existant future children. In order to prevent the possibility of such a dramatic event in the future, I hereby promise that I will only ever look at 2D girls! Celibacy is the only true way to save the future!

Oh, and of course a happy belated birthday to VNDB. This site is already 5 years old apparently. Time sure flies.

yorhel I think a lot of guys would feel absolutely sad from those words. Or at least I wanna say that, since I too am only looking at 2D girls.

Lasty Farson might be considered the mascot, being the default background, except whoever created the background got her heterochromia the wrong way round. Maybe they horizontally flipped an image.

Congratulations on 5 years. ^^
Maybe I should remind you on September 28 or 29 next year.Last modified on 2012-10-01 at 11:54

I had plans for creating a FAQ-tan, a cute loli mascot who would cry when newbies didn't read the guidelines, but no one volunteered to actually draw her. T_T

No, make her a cute loli YANDERE mascot, who will mercilessly bash noobs that didn't read the guidelines with her huge (ban)hammer. (If you are thinking about Dokuro-chan, you are on the right track). :D

Oh, and Happy Birthday.Last modified on 2012-10-01 at 14:03

Are you saying we could just say "draw this and that for VNDB" and somebody would actually do it? Sounds great.

Besides the FAQ could do with an improvement. It needs to be so attractive that only people uninterested in the VN world would skip it.

@Hiromin: If you are up to the task (and have the art-chops for it), then be my guest. :P

In my original concept art (read: a pretty bad doodle), FAQ-tan was a mascot much like Wiki-tan. A loli with long, straight blue hair in a classic schoolgirl uniform with a T-ruler (since she has the rules in her hand, get it? :P). I think she could still use some VN related accessories, but I couldn't really think any. Nevertheless I'm open to suggestions.

I also imagined her in three basic poses:
-FAQ-tan standing arms akimbo, with a disappointed frown on her face over the rule-breakers.
-Her in a neutral pose being all moe. This would be the pose used on the actual FAQ page.
-Finally, the most important one: FAQ-tan clutching her ruler on the verge of tears. This is important since this is the one that we would throw at recommendation-thread makers and the like while screaming "YOU MADE FAQ-TAN CRY!!!". It'll be fun. :D
