I appreciate the interest. Of course, getting involved doesn't have to take a lot of time, so keep it in mind for the next time you have fifteen minutes to spare. You could jot down a puzzle or make a concept sketch in that time. No excuses!
We might use polls for some decisions, but it's really not a democracy. It's more of a workocracy: Whoever does the most work gets to make most of the decisions. So if you think the main character should instead be a talking dog, that's fine as long as you're ready to make a bajillion dog sprites, or can convince others to make them for you.
