No shizam sherlock! If BRR would hurry up and get back we could get our forum!

I had a nice long, rational post typed up that went over this, but I've decided to instead put it in simple and blunt language.

People, please stop posting in Spotlight to try to increase your post total. It's annoying and doesn't belong here.

'k.


Didn't see if this was mentioned here, but have others heard about Mac Hall's semi-closing?

machhall.com:

Originally Posted by Ian I hate being serious...

I'm going to upset people, but this is effectively the end of Mac Hall in it's current form. A chapter closed.

I've long time said that I'll keep doing to comic as long as it's fun. Over the course of the year the enjoyment has been vanishing. As time fleets away, updates became a chore instead of treat. Ever since I came to this realization I've desperately grasped around for the joy in the process again. I'm still hoping to find it.

Along with the lull between comics there was already, I also was pushing off this strip as much as I could as I negotiated with Matt and mostly myself. I think we've come to an agreement we want to try and make work that will hopefully bring back the fun and breath new life in to our work.

Assuming all goes well, in October Matt and I will switch to the next phase of the comic and the site will have recieved some fresh code love. (I hope.) We'll ride with that for a while, and if it works. Kick ass. If not, well, I'm sure we'll figure something out. This is not ment as doom and gloom but just a simple road sign for things to come.

Again, change is on route. I hope you find it pleasant on your pallet.
It's not that big a deal, but still interesting.


Edit: Also, Permakittens:

Right now I’ve got research proposals on my mind, and I really wanted to package this idea in the form of an RP, but it’s not going to work out. So I’ll just put it out there and maybe someone could make it happen. One word: Permakittens. Everybody loves kittens. The only thing wrong with them is that they turn into cats. So we’ll make genetically modified cats that never get big. I’ve bounced this off a couple of honest-to-goodness biologists who assured me it is 100% doable and even gave me some tips.

Man, I really like Ian's style of art, so I hope he continues in his current drawing style, no matter what he ends up doing with the site. I definitely was tuned in due to the inane adventures of the college students within the site (Hell, I even caused his silver sharpie to run out of ink for our Miami University Australian Rules Quidditch Team shirts (on the back of the "trade your soul for a cookie?" T)). There were lots of funny jokes back in the day. So I'm kind of sad that he's leaving behind the old MH, but glad he's getting involved with something he enjoys.

Same.

What worries me is the recent Applegeeks change ("3.0"), where Hawk's art style switched to a slightly more comic-book look, when it had before been very MH-like.
Then again, they have been going away from the MH style for a while anyway.

Actually, that whole site change thing is annoying, it's hard to navigate.
PvP's done that too...
Meh.

Never read Mac Hall.

And I like PvP's new website design. The one I wasn't crazy about was PennyArcade's when they switched awhile ago, but I'm so used to it now, I don't even remember why I didn't like it.

That video is in Sydney (where I live) and the guy is going to be doing again tommorow. I have just under 24 hours to build up the nerve to go in.

Really?

That's cool.


And everyone needs more hugs.
Not even joking - hugs make lots of things better and solve problems.

It's really strange, actually.

They are both equally awesome, and I don't post much on the 3ebb anyway (you do).

Edit: Agh! Must add content to post to avoid wrath of itches...

Did people see that Elf Only Inn has started updating again?
It seems Sortelli has decided to get back at it.
Which is nice, considering that this was one of my favorites when it was active.

I stumbled across this today and felt that it should be immortalised.

Originally Posted by itches Q:How do I create a cool signature?

You need to make sure that it consists of at least 4 lines of text, any less and you're only going to be betraying the small size of your penis.

Adding colour to the text makes it stand out more, and distracts people from the actual content of your posts. Finally you need to make the signature nonsensical. A quote that no-one gets, a joke that isn't funny or my personal favourite - bad poetry.

Elf Only Inn has returned! Once more, I am graced with the presence of two webcomics that poke fun at the concepts of metagaming!

I assume he's talking about the Order of the Stick comic, by Rich Burlew.
