Your decision, 4 or so forumgoers!

Dangit; vix, could you remove that empty poll option?

way too silly :S

Cool idea and cool smilies. :) I would be in favor of it, if having unfamiliar Cousins wouldn’t be too confusing.

Considering the fact that they are all either licensed by Namco or official Namco property (and thus, official to the katamari franchise) I think yeah! They'd make cute additions to clickable emoticons :yes

I don't think people would get too confused. I think a good placement for them would be after the canon cousins[1], but before the :cowbear , where people would be unlikely to see them often. Besides, if people were confused, they could just ask.

Also, against or unagainst, I would appreciate your making your opinion known in the poll. :D (That is, unless you're abstaining while you decide).

EDIT: Woah! :ninja 'd by tldraco! :D That's never happened to me before!

[1] Well, these are canon cousins, ambiguously canon to be exact, but that's not important right now.

Hmm, I'd have to disagree. I think the more canon a cousin is, the more justifiable their appearance on an emoticon list to be in regards to this forum. I don't expect every emoticon you make of original, fan-made cousins to be put up in the emoticon list, but wouldn't official cousins have more meaning to the fandom?

Run you clever boy and remember...

Are they really official though? Wasn't the game not even made by Namco? Wasn't it Windysoft or something like that? I mean, something official tends to be available to the masses.

I'm on the fence since they were in a game only one country could legally play. I guess along that same theory only Japan and the US got KD while everyone else didn't. Everyone eventually got KD through KF. But there's something about it being restricted to one country and pirates that keeps me from wanting to agree 100%.

I appended a poll. I think Katach, you should have been able to do that yourself and then delete the original poll. I think users have that ability.

Yeah, I'm a total noob about polls. :heh

I meant that their ambiguous canonicity wasn't relevant to my grouping of the KF roster as "canon cousins". You and the named KDO trio are not from fanworks, making them at least somewhat eligible for the clickable emoticons.

I'm assuming they had permission from Namco (making it official), considering KDO wasn't copyrighted into oblivion. :shrug

Also, I'm mad-salty about KDO's region-locked (and apparently now-defunct) nature too (they should have converted the stages of the game into an offline game and sold it worldwide; South Korean fans might get somewhat upset ("They made us jump through all those hoops to play it as an MMO, and now they just took it down and are making us pay for it AGAIN to get a downgraded version?! I'm so done."), but they'd have made a bundle worldwide), but it's pretty transparently a katamari game with katamari gameplay. I mean, if it was that DS Japan-only puzzle game I'd show trepidation, but this seems a bit too big to ignore. :shrug

I'm honestly more surprised you're not up in arms about the cousin You, considering they're the player character in a dating sim no-one ever talks about :lol (it's a dating sim with NAMCO characters, it had something to do with ShiftyLook,
and that's all I've ever heard about it).

But if you're sure you don't want them here, just put your foot down and I'll submit :china ...

"You" is another weird one.

And if other people want them added in then I'll add them ( :yes ) in but I'll draw the line at adding them into the cotw ( :no ). I don't think they deserve that. :)

Of course we'd never have them there unless they were featured in a game we had access to, but that's a long shot; I never even considered that.

How do we know Wink's (the orange and blue one) name again? We know Mint and Mellow from this image, but what about her?

EDIT (December 10th): Um, when do you think we should close voting?
