The reason is that this is too shallow a topic for a poll, and that the discussion would fit the existing Model thread very well.

Here's an idea...

What about a contest where people submit their descriptions of designs for a new 00 mobile weapon? I'll do a concept art and action painting (like the model box art) for the best concept design description by popular vote.

Think of it as a fan-motivated 00V.

The mobile weapon design can be from the Solar War era, 00P/F, Season 1, or Season 2. It can be a mobile suit, mobile armor, or support unit (like 0 Raiser, GN Archer). The design can be based on existing mobile weapons, but for specific mission roles, like the Tieren variants, Avalanche Exia, or Cherudim SAGA. Or, it can be a new prototype weapon that never made it past the drawing board stage. No new Gundams, though.

This already exists in Make your own custom Mobile Suit - what do you propose that should be different from that thread? I can't see limiting the designs to modifications non-Gundams as sufficient reason for creating a new thread.

It would be more of a competition instead of a "post your own idea and let other people appreciate it" thread, so they serve different purposes, just like how in Fan Creations individual artists can show off their work in their own gallery threads but a competition is a separate thread. Just like contests in that forum, popular vote is how the winner will be determined.

A competition helps to push people to develop better technical ideas as to what is actually feasible in the 00 universe. It's also a writing challenge because people who do enter the contest won't be allowed to submit any drawings, but have to rely on their words to best convey not just their technical ideas, but also physical descriptions in a concise manner.

Naturally when there's a prize of some sort people are more motivated to participate and do their best As stated, I will create the concept art and paint a depiction of the winning entry based on how creative the person was in using the 00 technology, given the constraints, and how clear they were in describing their design. On top of that, nobody will have a precise edge over anyone else because they cannot provide an image of the design they have in mind.

If this thread hinges on the matter of art skill as the prize, I do have samples that I can provide.

Any competitions should go in the Fan Creations forum.

That's a horrible idea for a thread.

That kind of thread is begging for flame bait and trolls.

I agree that this would be a bad idea for a thread. If you want to discuss possible character deaths, there's already a thread for it.

Well, the creators have finally cleared up the issue over whether Innovators can have genders and whether Anew is an Innovator or not. I think that there's enough information on them to justify a thread. Please post all your theories/speculation/facts about Innovators here: Gundam 00 - Innovator discussion

You can go ahead and use the Gundam 00 Mecha thread for that.

Hey 4Tran, can we get a Gundam Politics and Philosophy thread? I think there are many an issue spread across every series that can be discussed at length. It'd be fine if it's limited to 00 only too.

One already exists for Gundam 00: Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Military and Government Discussion Thread. While the title doesn't specify politics, that's largely what the thread is about.

As a side note, it's a little sad that the kind of rich political discussion that was in the first few pages is no longer possible.

There are probably a few similar threads for Seed/Destiny, and if you want to talk about some other universe, please specify.

What about ' Is wanting revenge for Lockon not starting a conflict?' (against the meaning for their existence)

There's no need for a thread. The normal response is "no". And the Gundam Meisters have never cared about being hypocritical ideologues in the first place.

Not really a request, but IS there a thread for all talks about Gundam Wing?

There are the Why does everyone like Gundam Wing? and gundam wing threads.

Here's a hint: if you're looking for a particular kind of thread, your best bet is to do an Advanced Search, and filter by title only in the Gundam forum. I dug up the two threads by using "wing" as a key word in the title.
