Wow people. Let me share it with you people. I'm just so happy with it!
Some months ago, cover of chapter 682 was requesting ideas for manga extras, known as Omake:
With the help of CCC from APforums, I organized a thread in order to collect and vote ideas among the community in that site. In that thread 135 ideas were collected, and, in a second thread, created for the voting, 8 ideas were chosen to sent them in a letter to Oda. And.....yes!!! Oda chose one of our ideas for the next Omake which will appear in the LOG 20, with the implicit adknowledgement to the international group of fans; the chosen idea was RPG time (If the crew were fantasy characters like in DQ)
Beyond the happiness, this is a rare case of a very famous mangaka accepting ideas of a non japanese group to one of his releases. Very nice!!
Here you can read the thread and the diary of the iniciative, which includes the ideas collected, the ideas chosen and the letter sent to Oda.

Ups I wrote wrong the tittle of the thread, fuck! It should say: Oda accepts an idea of an international One Piece fans group in the internet for an Omake!!! Please Uriel, could you please fix it?
Ah he chose RPG... Marines would've been a lot funnier actually, or even the presidential, although I'd have loved seeing SH's in opposite roles (Luffy a scientist, Zoro a pacifist, well we got a glimpse of Sanji being an Okama, Usopp as a badass pirate or something like that etc)
I'm very happy for you guys, this is definitely a honor! Congrats to everyone involved.
Sanji being an Okama would be fun to see, also de Luffy one. It would be a nice idea. In the same line Robin would have to be a silly girl, and Nami a generous wealthy benefactor and Chopper an assassin lol..... There should be a manga on that theme, Chopper as an assassin. (For some reason that remind me of an MTV cartoon tv program. Not that I like it, (in fact I hate it), but it came to my mind)

That's huge news! Congrats! I hope we will have more in the future, so Oda knows his HUGE fanbase around the Internet.
Is Greg the leader of the team?
I've seen him on TV several times.
Congrats Ukimix I'm so happy . It's nice to see Oda took that into consideration , he's a great mangaka
