Now my mode has 4 moves, but the entry fourm says my discriptions for all of my moves are too long and that the input for one move is to long (while using move 3, release the ability button) What do I do now? (I'm trying to describe each move in detail so that the reader knows exactly how they would act)
The input methods should be written like the move list screen in the Kirby games writes them: A, ^A, > V A, etc. See the received entries to see how this is going to be converted to icons. A sentence is not necessary.
As I said on the submission page, the character limits per field were a lot shorter since everything is being split apart and not just lumped in one big blob as per normal. I didn't think that it'd be an issue, honestly, and even the normally wordy Kiroscarby got what he wanted in without issue.
I was going for a streamline of the submission since all of the fields to fill might have been seen as daunting, and then the move-list tables could be swelled to a huge size if each row contained a long paragraph. On my monitor, the longest description is about three lines and matches the height of the icons.
Hopefully it appears soon, and no, it's not just "the Robobot Armor malfunctions and Kirby has to fix it" or "the Robobot armor fully heals itself, but it is a one time use". No, it is very different from that.
Edit: No, it does not do that either, although that sounds... interesting.
Yes, you should still describe it. A single entity can be interpreted several ways by different artists.
There really isn't anything else "important" that needs included that I can think up. Sounds like you may just be tryin' to bypass the move set size limit (you know, given your trouble before an' all).
It's sorta covered in <a href="/fan/if/faq.html#more">the I.F. FAQ</a>. Submitting more than one? No problem. Submitting a flood in rapid succession (where some of the fields were not even bothered to be filled out)? Well, that's gonna earn some negative points on your behalf. Basically, a delay was held on approval to see if the more-than-an-entry-a-day pace was kept up.
Also, one of my modes had only one move for a reason (it was one-use) and the others where I didn't fill in some fields was because... well, I forgot. As for the "submitting a flood in rapid succession" part, that does make sense. Sorry.
Please don't hate me for asking, but when do you suppose you guys could do a new mailbag? If there just haven't been many new letters yet, then maybe we could ask people to give their opinions on Robobot or something?
(I mean, seriously though, I really just wanna see my super old letter finally get answered! And, I wanna know, why was it put off for so long anyways?!)
Could you guys work on the "Recent News" thing over in the corner of the site? Recent news is a little, uh, stale. By a few years. I know that's the old insufferable former staff's and Amika's fault, though.
While I can understand the need for keeping descriptions short for these entries, I feel like I'm writing a tweet on Twitter Dot Com with all the cuts I'm making to the entry I wrote. I guess I am nothing if not overly complex and detailed in my nonsense.
Actually, as long as I'm making a comment here, I wasn't entirely sure how to put the button sequence commands in. I could imagine a capital A would hold down the ability button and a lowercase a would mean tap it, there's no instructions on such. I just typed in the hover text for the buttons on the Button Sequence Commands page, but I imagine a streamlined "do this!" would make things easier for 'Snaff.
