I was referring to the (main) events in both canons, mostly. I find it way harder to bring them (and Rumble) into recollection and adaption than, say, adapting stuff from the anime and Ranger. Things like traits and moves are not hard to "pull back", in particular from PMD, because they tend to support themselves across canons (that's why for example I could get away with Call For Family, or at least no one has called me on it until now, but I certanly won't be able to easily pass with, say, Jolteon's Diaelectric); although by referencing them that way we would be doing the converse of projecting stuff from those canons to "the one" where the PEFE is written, I guess that would matter not — as it is just semantics.
And now that you asked about promoting the project, I truly haven't given too much thought to it. I sucked big time at my college's marketing classes. Userbars and other artistic stuff is one thing; maybe a dedicated startpage / aggregator outside of TV Tropes
would be the second best as it gives us an "internet name". Then we can evolve
it into our new hosting if and when we decide to do the move — or the sheer amount of traffic generated towards the project starts overwhelming the TV Tropes
servers. Because I suck at visual arts, I've decided to incorporate elements of the PEFE into my fanfic in progress, and eventually feature the project itself, perhaps as an in-universe published encyclopædia or something, all while credited and stuff. Discussion of the project itself is not going to lead us somewhere new (or fast) because it is somewhat constrained by the domain of the problem; using
the project, on the other hand, like say specifically drawing stuff from the project to do cross-reference in fanfics and artwork, hopefully getting some pieces to take part in contests or feature displays, would work lots better and would also be less demanding overall (except for the ones who do
the writing/drawing). All in all, we have to believe our own sell, if I am translating thee idiom right.
Other than that I have no good ideas to pull out from a hat to raise awareness to our project, sorry.
