In some ways i am glad they did not do any of my creatures. (not that it was a big chance of that) I am not sure anyone but me could do the justest. But then again some of them was spot of i think. I bet the Naucean will be one of the hardest creatures to recreate. It was a good try of Guillaume Pierre.

Lucky you..  >:( But I think they should have made the other veteran creatures aswell, not LadyMs' creature and Ovis' creature just cause they are mods <.<  >.>

But Petikes creature is up there to! Guess he was lucky :P

Being a mod had nothing to do with being picked. They liked the creature, apparently they looked at a lot of them and reasons for choosing each one. We've also been very active members of this community for a very long time. They've been reading our forums since the beginning. It's a shame you feel that Ovi and I don't deserve to be picked, we put as much effort into our creatures as did Hydro.

Yes maybe, but I still think there are people that have put more work into their creatures, their creatures beeing more "classic" around here, like the ViS, the Torpal, etc.

And in some way I feel that they "deserve" it a bit more, I don't mean to offend you, but thats what I think.

I'd say there's quite a few who deserve it. Perhaps if Maxis is willing to do a future series of fan concepts in the coming months.

Perhaps you should also email your concepts to them instead of hoping they find yours since that's what Hydro pretty much did.

Please don't post the emails of Maxis employees unless they've given permission to do so.

They found me 1st btw. Way back when Will wanted to use my creatures in his GDc presentation back in 2006. Then I met them at E3 2006. It was not until recently that MaxisCactus contacted me like he did for the others who were featured. Remember they lurk on the forums. This forum just happened to be one of the earliest before other forums became dedicated to Spore.

Do they have to have your personal information to do this sort of thing?

Whatever you say, it's quite clear to me that they chose the creatures of site leaders.  LadyM and Ovi are mods, Hydro set the standard and has run at least two sites, Petreak is a mod at Sporesite.com (insert shameless plug here), Mason started the wiki site, and Wydraz does a Spore comic.  I don't know about the other two, but they are probably leaders of their respective sites as well.  Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good thing that they started with leaders of the fan community.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Congrats Hydro, that is really an awesome honor. :D

No hate for anyone who was featured, it's awesome for all!!

I only "know" you though and I'm so happy for you. <3

I guess it was a joke, (considering that I don't even have a creature) but I don't get it.  :-[

Sorry, mixed you up with Petreak xD

I think that's spot on.  Due to the fact that while most of the creatures they picked were really cook, my swiftick, at least in the cellular stage, wasn't anything spectacular.  Though they did do a fantastic job recreating it.  It's possible they were just looking for a cellular version to display variety, but I think largely the way they chose was as you described.  I don't think saying that should be taken as an insult to anyone (and I'm not insulted myself) but it does appear that the choices were less for actual skill in design and more for name recognition among the community.  As I stated above that doesn't mean that actual skill in design didn't happen to come along, but at least in my example it's pretty clear that it wasn't the requirement for inclusion.

Though, a google look didn't find any obvious clues for ShadowOfaSpore and Saerain.  I'm gonna e-mail maxiscactus and ask about it to get a confirmation.

Strictly speaking I didn't start the wiki, though I did help with it a lot and come June and September will be preparing it for a major revamp.

Edit - Sent e-mail.
