Since I.S.T's warning earlier was about being tolerant towards a newbie's hack qualities, this post doesn't satisfy that condition.
I know it wasn't intentional, but you're marginalizing the LGBT community when you say things like that. Just because you may not like the subject matter, doesn't make it insignificant. This is a very significant hack, and so is every single other hack on this site.
As jink640 has stated:
I don't think he meant it in the way "Why is an LGBT hack on news" kind of way. I think he meant "Why is a simple graphics hack on news". I kind of agree with him, but its not like there is much other news.
And please quit saying people are marginalizing others when they are clearly not. It will not get you anywhere on these boards.
While another thing I should point out:If you backtrack some of my replies earlier you should know that I am not, in the least, against the idea of adding LGBT elements in video games: In fact I actually AM doing it NOW, and I've been offering quite some ideas in this thread.
(Fact is, the mindset of assuming that people's criticism is directed towards LGBT itself by default can damage, and is making damages to the reputation of the LGBT community. So for the community's sake, stop doing that.)
Basically, my point wasn't about the LGBTQ theme itself: If the theme was anything else it wouldn't make a lot of difference. I was saying that, although not restricted by the rules, a news article should normally be something of higher quality or more work put into; and as for significance, LGBT hacks has been present since long ago.
And I'm not criticising the work itself for being a simple graphics hack, I'm indicating that it's better if you write a news article when you have quite a series of refreshing finished products.
