As such, we're going to need a good selection of quotes to pick from.
We tried a poll back before the site switch (dunno if anyone remembers that), and it was okay, but very slow. Since we're going for speed and immediacy, we're going to do it a bit different this time.
So, basically how this works is, we're taking suggestions for scrolling quotes. Ideally, they shouldn't be too long, and should capture the spirit of the site or crucial events in some facet, or just be really really good quotes. We're not going to have voting on these; rather, the staff is going to pick from the suggestions or others we find. It's less democratic, but it's a whole lot quicker and easier, and ensures that our quotes are actually pretty current.
One last thing: when you suggest a quote, please make sure to link the thread it comes from. This is a chance to informally highlight and shout out to some of our great writers and characters, and I'm sure a bunch of people will be interested in the scenes these quotes come from.
Also, please do not nominate yourself.
Repeat nominations are pointless, since this is not a voting thing.
Finally, there's no way we're going to get anywhere close to hitting all of these, especially as they become less current due to game progress, so I want to reiterate that the secondary purpose of this thread is to give shout outs to cool lines and characters.
Since this is not a critique thread, no bashing of others' choices.
Now, have at!
EDIT: Keeping a list of past quotes for posterity, just in case anyone is interested.
