I think a little over a week ago I finally put a picture in for the Mafia. I've waited for awhile now, and so far it hasn't been accepted or declined.

There's a temporary hold on character acceptance. I mentioned this in the "what characters have you submitted thread. That explains why The Mafia, and numerous other characters, are still awaiting review. So your character isn't being singled out or anything.

True, I have two characters as well that are past the 7 days rule. But I have seen Landons post about the current hold and have not mentioned anything until now.

When is the best estimate on continuation of character approval?

yeah.


You know, at first I thought that sounded kind of silly. But then I remembered that I had submitted cowboys and somebody else had submitted vikings, so I felt silly.

If anything, submitting "generic" stuff like The Mafia, Cowboys, and the like makes a LOT more sense than the people trying to submit "The Flash from that one issue where he ate a cheeseburger."

Is character approval still down because it's been way more than a week since I submitted the Mongol Horde and Mickey O'Neil.


Mongol Horde NEW 2009-06-03 14:05:18
Mickey O'Neil NEW 2009-06-03 14:01:06

It is now 2009-06-14 15:25:XX

Even accounting for the three or so days that Approval was announced to be down, it's still over the 7 day rule.

Well, at least the Mongols got Reviewed... but tossed aside because it "Doesn't seem Pop Culture to [The Reviewer]."

Well, I can't help that, but does it count that there are films about them, making them apart of Pop Culture. Not to mention their appearances in documentaries and video games. Oh, and who could forget those "God damn Mongolians, breaking down the chitty wall"... But I guess they aren't Pop Culture Enough for the CBUB...

Then submit them as such. Maybe use the pic from South Park, with related references, and submit to the 'toons category.

People, the Pop-Culture category is not a catch all: "Any character I want who doesn't fit into the others."

To quote serge: We mostly deal with fictional entities.

While the Mongolians from South Park Might be a good add, you still can't deny the other links I gave pointing out the Actual Mongolians that have a significant impact on Pop Culture. Their in a super continents worth of History, their in our Games, their in our Movies, hell they even have Movies of them and their Empire.

Would you rather them submitted under Ghengis Khan, and forget the fact that his Empire lasted for quite a while after his death? What about Ögedei Khan, Güyük Khan, Möngke Khan, and the Famous Kublai Khan who invaded Japan? Their Empire literally stretched from the east coast of China to where present day Germany is.

Besides when you get down to it, would you rather have fifty vague Mongol Characters that may or may not be used, or would you rather have one general category of Mongol, like the Vikings.

Impact, yes. ARE they a part of pop culture? Not so much.

we kind of transfered the disscussion over to "A Petition for the Admins" since it made more sense there then here.
