One should not expect things to happen instantly. Nor should one expect someone to remember one thing when they have hundreds of other things to do.

Aero has put a lot of work and hours into making TCO what it is now. I'm sure he's had awesome ideas, that he just couldn't do at the point in time, and had forgotten about them. I know I have.

a very simple thing he could do would be to write down the possible ideas that he has approved and then stick that note to his pc screen or something. it's not rocket science, but has he done that? doubt so, this thread is the proof.

he might care, but not enough after until a year plus from the first reminder

and i ain't a wc3 coder (and many others likewise aren't either), unless of course some basic website coding had any part in this.
But I have done that. I just don't have everything. So if you think there's something forgotten by just anyone, just tell me. Awesome ideas are always welcome to the campaign. And now is the best chance when I have motivation to add. Sometimes I don't, now I do.

I've 329 MB of just notepad files(well ok there are few models and programs but still).

The human brain can only process 7 different things at any given time. It is VERY common for people to forgot something.

So take the idea for an example. He was reading the tread, processing the characters in the posts, thinking about how the sets would work into the campaign, which one he liked better, which one would be better for the campaign.

That right there, is five different things to process. And there was no doubt more to process at that time. So more than likely, he had to stop one thing he was doing, in order to complete something else.

Adding in the thought "I should write this down" adds a lot more things to process. Such as what to use, actually writing it down, spelling correctly and using correct drawing for each character, what to write next.

Now you're probably thinking "That's not a lot", or something to that degree, however for a human brain, it is.

Trying to do more than what a brain can handle, will generally cause sloppy or incomplete work for each process.

Think about this, have you ever trying surfing the web for things people are telling you to, juggling with one hand, riding a unicycle, while singing a song? It is more or less impossible to do everything correctly the first time.
Hey you... Yes you... get over here...

^ alright, let's play it ur style.

if we can't complete many processes at a time without doing mistakes, what's stopping aero from writing down the idea FIRST and THEN think about it throughly. and if he then thinks the idea is bad, erase that idea from the list.

i really don't see why u'd see this thread as a good thing and really wished to defend it; this shouldn't have happened.

Yes, but it has happened already and get over with it. Now, are there any good ideas from the past?

EDIT: Besides why especially you're whining about the case. You haven't joined a single competition in the past.

You are ASSUMING he isn't doing anything else at the time of reading an idea(s), except for reading that idea. The point I've been trying to make is that more than likely, there are other thing he was doing before and during while he was reading the idea(s).

It's not that I'm defending this thread, it's that I hate your approach to a solution. It's gives a "high and mighty" attitude. And the thoughts behind your approach is "if he does it the way I tell him to, this never would have happened". It doesn't matter if that isn't how you meant it, that is how it comes off.

Anyway, Aero. Maybe this is another good idea from the past.

You stated "two good abilities, shame that I cannot do that other one" for MofoBear's entries. It looks that you liked both entries, however you also state that you think the Chilling Presence couldn't be done.

http://tcocampaign.createaforum.com/index.php?topic=21.msg136#msg136
Details of the Chilling Presence entry.

Personally, I think that it is still possible to create this. It would probably take more work than it really should, but it would still be possible.

Edit: Was there a winner on competition #15? http://tcocampaign.createaforum.com/index.php?topic=35.0
If there was, it wasn't made public. Else, maybe another forgotten idea?
