True. I have overblown things here, looking back. I really only meant for people to re-purpose their ideas in a more realistic way. My friends and I had to learn this the hard way when we tried to bite of more than we could chew: we were overly-ambitious for our first rom hack and things kinda fell apart because of sporadic ideas. We learned a lot from the experience, so I just made the post merely for the sake of being cautionary.
I think the key point to remember is that what we put here is merely suggestion. The staff always has the final say, and I'm sure they're happy to talk to community members who are also keen to help. Nothing has to be used.
Also, this project has leaped far off the overly ambitious deep end anyway. At this point, letting it spiral may just be for the best - who knows, it might end up being as colossal as CLANNAD.
