Maybe it's just too many falls. I once raced up 12 stairs at a water park. At the 11th step I slipped, and I guess I was going really fast because I cleared the rest of the stairs and landed thud on the concrete below. No real external damage, but wow, maybe 12 seconds of being out, 8 seconds or so of having blacked out and my mum was in a panic. Went right back up to probably the worst water slide man ever built. One of those tubes where they dump almost as much water as the kids running down it. By the end of the ride my nose was in so much pain from sucking up all that water, and the twists and turns made it hard to keep track of my position, along with various periods of being turned around face-first into water, struggling to breath. Terrible slide design. Funny part is that I was either 11 or 12 at the time.
Ah, look at me, procrastinating again. Back to work.
The two contributing editors are Liamland and robg37. robg37 opted to be known as robg37 at the end where I'll list minor credits on who contributed to the article. Liamland, you've contributed the most, and were a great inspiration, so pm me with how you want to be known within the credits (I'm assuming, given your edits that you prefer Liamland). shadow, you contributed to brainstorming ideas in construction, so how would you prefer to be credited?
LOL, I really should have pre-edited before my initial release. Lazy me. Thanks rob and Liam for the edits. Not sure if you'll both see everything you did come through, but I did my best. Let me know what you think when it's up.

Hmm, if this doesn't work, maybe I should pull a youtube troll and title a video "Hot Sex", start out with connecting playing DQ9 to Hot Sex...show some awesome models, and do some voiceovers where they talk about how sexy DQ9 is, then alter the screen to a spiral, and talk about SE destroying DQVC and the now fully programmed army of misfits shall begin a letter writing campaign, enmasse!
That's just crazy thought.
I was half tempted to say Bieber's name, but then I thought, even in jest it would disgrace the name of DQ and sully my reputation wherever I should go. As Bieber b***** eventually awake, wonder what happened, and why Vampires today are fruitcakes that glow in sunlight and are incapable of wooing anything female more intellectually profound and emotionally intelligent than high school girls.
For shame on me, but somehow this has to resonate, beyond even the scope of the article. Here's to hoping.

You can use my username on here if you like.
Not that you have to credit me at all in this but if you really feel like it, then sure, use the username.
Otherwise i look forward to seeing that finished article. :)

Whatever the outcome, we respect Square Enix's wishes, however in closing, we do request that we are respected and at the very least given proper notice of whatever Square Enix actually decides on the present and future of the DQVC for fans outside of Japan. We further request proper communication for any similar decision going forward on any future game with online content. We, the fans, love Dragon Quest. We would love to see both the series and Square Enix flourish around the world, but this relationship means that we deserve, for our hard-earned money, an official notice and options, should the company wish to discontinue downloadable content.
Ze final product spectaculaaaaaar! I have done it! Well, just phase 1 anyway. So let me know what you guys think. If this still needs further editing, please state as such (likely very minor if anything). Hope Liam and robg37 can see where their contributions begin and end.
Anyway, huzzah, I'm hungry, I've got stuff to do today, so I'll be back sometime later tonight. Hopefully to some activity, further insights, commentary on how they feel about this, and I'll get work work on seeing who will post this.

After a response on gamespots GSWRT forums, I've decided I'm going to go for the blog route. See if I can't get it editorialized.
I'll send in a submission to them to see what they think, then do an official blog post. I'll attempt the same on 1UP.com, and I'll try with submissions to kotaku and siliconera to see if I can't get my blog some notice and we'll go from there.
How's that sound? With this in mind, I'll erase the above message, as it no longer serves any purpose.

Ok, so this is my Gamespot account, first time posting here...huzzah!
I will be retiring Metal Slime B, and given it's a pain to log into two accounts, I'll just keep updating the current situation via this route.
I left a copy of the future blog post formerly known as an article on the Gamespot Writers Round Table to get some extra feedback first. Then I'll post a blog, then attempt to editorialize it so we can get some greater recognition.
I'm half tempted to turn this into a serious blog for all things Dragon Quest. So feel free if there's something to post about, like updates on Dragon's Den, etc. for me to bring up. I'll be checking myself anyway. For now though the core focus is this.
I am not sure how I'll open up my first blog post, but I'll think of something crafty.
I'll post a link when that happens. After that point I'll see about chatting it up with Siliconera, Kotaku, and Tiny Cartridge (dwaine's suggestion on dragon's den). I'll tack on RPGamer as well.
