Should be fixed for the media section too now.

Not that it's a huge deal, just seems silly to have a Media section when people can't upload pics

Should be resolved now. Had to increase the amount of disk space allowed to be occupied by attachments.

Still a problem, and messing with the extension didn't help.

Is that still a problem, Areya? Could it be that the extension was .jpeg instead of .jpg?

P.S. Ryouh/Nulani, any idea why .jpg's can't be uploaded?

Renaming Characters
« on: October 21, 2012, 08:06:45 pm »
Just another random poll, since I haven't put one up in a while.

I usually use defaults, though I change a few of them.  Like, I tend to rename Red XIII as just Red.  I know some other people make him Nanaki.

On a related note, in some games where you can name generics, I tend to use names of friends or people I know.

If I change names, then I get confused when I look up the walkthrough on line ;)

It honestly depends on the game.

FF9 - I change the lead char, leave the others.
FF7 - Leave them all the way they pop up on default
Breath of Fire series - Rename only the main char
Dragon Quest series - Always change char names

Dragon Quest series - Always change char names

If memory serves, in DQ games, there's either no default names, or you can't change them <.<

But I could be wrong, it's been a while since I played some of them.

In DQ3, there's no default names (for that matter, no default characters other than the hero) and you could change your nonmain characters at will.  At least in the original version, which I still have laying around.

As for most of the rest, there's not really a default name for some of them.  Like in DQ8.  You have to put in some sort of name!

Hm yeah it really depends on the game. If the lead is a guy I may or may not change it. I do name the heroine after myself sometimes. If you're given the choice to rename the others I do it for fun. It depends on my mood at the time too.
If you forgot who I was that's okie.  Chances are I've forgotten you too. Don't fret after all the rediscovery is always the best part!
