Especially well suited, I think, for Keith's forthcoming immersive massively multi-writer game/writeware venture, Scrivtropolis.

And there was me thinking I was a real person, with a real job in technical support and everything, and it turns out that I'm just a figment of Keith's imagination, trapped in a beta-test fictional world. Oh, no! How am I ever to escape this spiralling quandary of existentialism? :shock:

I only recently watched Fritz Lang's Metropolis and had I not watched it I probably wouldn't get what's being said here.

Nevertheless, I guess the mascot doesn't have to be a robot cause well it's not only sci fi writers who use this app.

Hmmm... Back to the drawing board ...er... I mean scapple....

We have been walking on egg shells, b/c nobody wanted to break it to you. Frankly, I'm relieved.

You know, maybe your avatar should have been a clue. I'm just saying.

If you mean the middle one on the right hand side, I agree with you, but there's one problem I foresee: the many new users of Scrivener and Scapple who keep telling Keith that Lit&Lat will soon be in trouble if he doesn't start making upgrades to match anything they have gleaned from other software ... they will see the Scrivener logos in her eyes as dollar signs and take that as confirmation that Lit&Lat is about making as much money as possible as quickly as possible, rather than about creating the best software for its designated purpose.

:D

Oh come on. A mascot isn't about making money. It's about embodying the team spirit of writers who use scrivener, encapsulated in genial, enjoyable to look at avatar or picture.


It's about having fun!

I have to disagree.

IMHO L&L Do Not need a mascot.

All they need is to continue doing what they do best, developing incredible, focussed software.

Leave 'mascots' etc to those companies who feel they need to distract from their failings, or those who focus more on hype than substance.

Again, IMHO, the Micrsoft paperclip doofer was one of the biggest wanks in MS history. (apologies to anyone offended by the 'w' word.)

Haha, your right. I meant this more as activity for fans of the software to participate in, to show their spirit is all. I didn't expect Keith himself to step up the game and make actual drawings!

This thread was created purely for fun and by no means do I think it should be implemented as some assistant within the software itself.
