As there will be more and more members every day there will be also more questions.

Maybe some of them can be answered already by members, some of them can be answered by the devs and others ramain as a mystery (until release ;) )

So why not collecting all the questions in one thread?

The character creator will be compared to other MMOs creators. So I think you don´t have to fear DCUO´s character creator, but I think Champions Online has a very good one.

So will we be able to create only human-like characters or can we create other shapes like in CO?

That is only a good idea if it is a reference thread with links to other threads where those question are answered and/or discussed. Collecting "everything" in one thread will make it very hard follow individual conversations within it, which is the entire purpose of separating them out in different threads.

That depends on how you define human-like. Every player in CO is humanoid and I'm sure VO will stick to that for player characters, though I'm hoping for more.
I am sure that we will get at least as wide a range of choices as there was in CoH. Maybe not directly at launch but fairly soon after.

If you call insect wings and lizard-tails humanoid... then yes.

Just wanted to know as I have a concept for a non high-tech mutant like hero. I could not create him on COH and DCUO but it worked on CO very well.

*well there was a "ask the devs" thread in the other forums. I thought we could do this here the same way...
But okay. Let´s create a new thread for every single question.

Yes I do, as long as the whole being is otherwise mainly a bipedal of human shape/structure. If you have a better definition for bipedal human looking beings with tails and/or wings then I'm all ears.

Without having more specifics from you all they (and we) can say is that there will be non-human features, like wings and tails. Since you say that is possible in CO but not in CoH nor in DCUO then it seems that you want some pretty specific options, since non-human features were an option in CoH and are in DCUO.

If you're talking about an AMA type thread then let the devs start it, since it'll be clear that they are there to answer it and that they'll be the primary source for answers. They usually also run for a limited time and are not primarily there to collect "everything" but rather be an open Q&A session.
When players create such threads they usually don't go over so well since there will be too many other users giving answers and that they tend to turn into discussion threads rather than simple Q&A threads.

I am not sure if they stated it on the old forums but all other forums I have been part of (not just games) prefer to have each distinct question/topic in their own thread for the primary reason of easily being able to follow along. Having one single thread where every post can jump between hundreds, even thousands, of distinct discussions becomes disorganized very easily and thus finding relevant information becomes harder, compared to having each distinct discussion in a separate thread.
