@Tcaud-

I think you're confusing management and good judgememt with bad attitude.  Communities need order and organization.  If it takes necessary some hard decisions, its normal.  No ones perfect.

Too bad this didn't go longer.. I'm stuck in finals week so I can't work on: http://opengameart.org/content/rpg-character-bases-assets .  As a side note:  What are the requirements for the competitions?  Like.. is it preferred that the art submitted for the competition or after it has started?

Wow, very well done, I like the style.  Thanks!

I could totally see a "make a mystical creature" game with this.  Or even have random monster generators for creatures in a game.  Good job thus far.

Well, there's the Hoppy Easter Bunny on there, the bubble words can easily be cropped out..  I just scanned and uploaded the pictures so I didn't do much with them.  Sorry about the resolution on the bunny, I can possibly rescan it if you'd like.

Oh and Bart, I'm not saying you shouldn't work at OGA full time.  I think you should if that is your dream.  We just need to think up a way for you to do it is all.  Hope you understand.

 

Also.. I think it'd be smart to make the Kickstarter project an OGA community project .  We can possibly make an Android/iOS/HTML5 game together and then Kickstart it.  Use that Kickstarter money and the money made towards the "Barts 6-month security income plan".  We all can chip in on the art and make it CC-BY so it's all reuseable.

@bart-

I think it's great that you want to give back so much to the community you've made, but I'm just wondering how much stuff there is for you to do on the site?  Yes, we do need some new features integrated with the website (as Sharm has mentioned), but how you will get paid?  

As an OGA employee you would need bare minimum 30-40K income per year.  The only way I see this happening is that you are commissioned by people/companies for work, which would take your time away from OGA.  You could do more advertisement here, but that'd make OGA an advertisement billboard.  Programming/Web development for OGA would be much appreciated, but there is no extra money to be made there.

LPC brought in a lot of revenue, so I'm not doubtful that you can get enough donations for a year or two of OGA work... however that doesn't secure long term (plus KickStarter has a pretty strict rule against "Fund my Life/Help me start a Business" Campain which I feel yours falls under.  What you are KickStarting must be a Project as defined by Kickstarter.).

What we really need to be thinking of is: What can Bart do for OGA that will make 30-40K per year and help the OGA community?  Once we can answer this and are confident that you will be able to support yourself and your family, we can then think about KickStarter.  What kind of OGA project can we launch initially that will give some support money for Bart.  I'd like to see the money from Kickstarter be a fall back for you, or money that you can use when there is no income (giving you stability).  

Things you'd need:

  • OGA affiliated job that can produce 30-40k income per year
  • KickStarter project that will earn 15-20k initially (used as a 6-month fall back for Bart in desperate times)

Of course this is just my opinion.  I don't want to be the dream-eater... just being a realist.  :) -Curt

@Anyone using inkscape:

Is there a font package that comes with inkscape?  If so does it include Arial font or do they have substitute fonts?
