I respect your opinion, and I agree with you on some things. This is a community driven monster, and everything about it will be decided on by the community, not individuals.
However, I did state that although I don't prefer Parasite, that doesn't effect my feelings towards this project. I was just saying that maybe we could try going at it from a different approach.
Also, what's the problem with taking pride in it? Is it going to be put into the game? No. Is it something that we individually are creating? No. But is it something that we, as a community, are crafting, building from the ground up to something we all helped make? Yes. And I don't know about you, but I like to take pride in my work.
No one is bashing the Parasite idea. Some like it. Some don't. But I have yet to see anyone actually bash on the Parasite just because they want something different.
And plz don't jinx us with the whole "It's very unlikely they will make a monster like what we are making" thing! We said that exact same thing with Golem and look where she is now, lol.
