what do you mean? is that an ad for a cafe, or is there going to be another anime advert like with nanami?

about that wikipage's thumbnail, maybe it'll look better if the characters don't overlap to each other or else it may look confusing.

I think it looks perfectly fine, leave it as it is. :)

@dustii: i'd suggest photoshopping them together into one image. i didn't notice at first, but since one cuts off the features of the other, it might be better to make them one icon. or maybe put the thumb for one down a line, so they stack vertically instead of horizontally.

also, typically an os article features a description of the system and its specs before the character description. for an os that has multiple -tans, it's also good to include information on each, even if it's limited to just pictures or links. (at second look i see you've done that, but you're missing the green-haired one. though that one only has one picture, it's a great parallel to some of the other members of the windows family, such as ME-tan and 1.0-tan. ^^) it's a good first draft, but i'd refine it a bit to give it more meat on its bones. unless you're leaving it trimmed down due to lack of information, but given that you're basically a walking encyclopedia on the damn thing, i doubt that's the case. ^^
if you need an example, check out some of the other os articles:

you're getting me inspired to clean up/create some of the articles... =w=

Updated info on Aya Madobe, my alternate 8-tan, on the wiki:
http://ostan-collections.net/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_8#Aya_Madobe

Quote from: the WikiAya Madobe is an alternate (fan-made) OS-tan for Windows 8. She has brown hair, is about 5"8, and is somewhere between the ages of 18 & 20. She is often disliked by her peers, and her existence is unacknowledged by the Windows Family, with one exception, that being her sister, Nanami Madobe, who visits her from time to time, and enjoys spending time with her. Aya is always trying to impress other people, and likes to always add her own personal touch to things. She is often misunderstood, and is un-respected in her field when it comes to her line of work. When it comes to work she is usually creating office documents or doing assistant work, and is always wearing an ensemble of: A suit, skirt (adorning the Windows 8 logo), one of her many different colored ties (she owns 25 assorted colored ties in all), a charm bracelet, and black thigh high heeled boots. When it comes to her work her employers always seem to deem her unfit for certain task others in her position would find commonplace, and often hand such tasks off to other employees, despite her ability to complete the tasks. When she is not at work she is usually hanging out with some of her friends, Claudia Madobe, or Nanami, and is always wearing an ensemble of: Colored Pastel Shirt (She owns 25 assorted pastel colored shirts in all), a colored tie, a vest, a ruffled miniskirt (adorning a colored Windows 8 logo that matches her shirt color), black stockings, a charm bracelet, and thigh high zip up onyx black heeled platform boots. (note she always has a tie and charm bracelet). Side Note: Aya is fond of designer coffees, with one of her favorites being the Caramel Macchiato.

Yah! Someone else posted the DSP Box art with them a few pages back.
...I wonder when someone will upload the special themes like they did with Nanami Madobe & Windows 7...

Ask and you shall recieve.

Madobe Yu Theme (I cant find Ai still)

Found it on some forum. Thank you random people!

Its in the Windows 8 .desktheme file format, but i think you guys can open it in WinRAR to extract files if on 7.

EDIT: Just realised i quoted myself XD

ask and you shall recieve. spent a couple hours tracking down one with the pieces seperated (like the old nanami DIY themepacks so you could apply the sounds to older versions of windows), then translating the names of the soundfiles to english, then applying them to their appropriate places, and finding backgrounds, and finally saved the whole shebang into 2 seperate themepacks, one for Yu alone and one for Yu and Ai (there were some sounds with them together, however the majority of the sounds are still Yu). per bella's request i'm going to attach the link to the wiki, but i'll also provide it below:

i wish i could have found more backgrounds, but i got 10 good ones from the theme itself, wakachan and pixiv, so it's all good. my favourite part is the sound i assigned to the popup blocker; there wasn't a designated one so i used Yu giggling. ^^
i can't guarentee translation accuracy due to having to run the file names through an online translator, but i'm 75-90% sure they're correct.

I found the "どんな未来でも" (Donna mirai demo) theme from the CD bundled with Windows 8 Pro DSP edition sold at TwinBox AKIHABARA. But i cant find "ミラクルデイズ" (Mir8cle Days)... :\

IDK, honestly.

And i never thought of that. I'll check (though when searching the web, the results were for an anime theme "Miracle Days", not "Mir8cle Days", since i guess the 8 isn't reflected in the japanese name)
