I am, after all, a huge fan of your work.

Questionable Content is also not plot-centric; it's relationship-centric, and there's a host of real-world experiences to draw upon there.
Dr. McNinja's author can pull an evil motorcycle from a magical world out of his butt and no one blinks an eye.
But if, after several years, an event in Erfworld appears to contradict a power described 3 years ago in 2 text bubbles on Page X of book one, it inspires 14 pages of debate on whether the author screwed up.

We went through that character's design process, with hours of live discussion as we researched and shared source material on costume, facial features, and color scheme (despite this being a monochrome illustration, the character will appear later). Xin then took a day to draw the illustration, to which I will write the update.

Flytrapz wrote:Like you said – you don’t care about my support, and you don’t care if I’m mad…not in an appreciable way relative to the perfection of book 1. That is a profound statement: At least at the moment, you don’t care about my day-to-day experience of erfworld.com.
Flytrapz wrote:And if we’re honest about it, if your profession were about providing on-line content, web design, or creating a satisfying end-user experience, well, then not caring about your users’ experiences is an issue of professionalism. This is where I was mistaken and you set me straight.
I now get that that isn’t what your profession is about: Your profession is about designing books, and erfworld.com is about selling them and related merchandise.
Flytrapz wrote:It does, however, damage my sense of community here, and pretty much kills the illusion of having some kind of stake in your project. Which is a little sad for me, even if you don’t really care. Not your fault, of course – my fault, for having misunderstood your intentions with the toolbox program and the purpose of your website.

That's so plausible it just cannot be true
