Ignore the Haters Rob

Postby 0beron » Thu Mar 13, 2014 6:02 pm

Mini rant time.

I'm getting incredibly sick of the folks who make accounts just to whine about the fact that Erfworld is in a text-heavy period right now, with snarky jabs like "it's not a webcomic without the pictures", especially when their questions are generally things that could be easily answered by looking at the Site News. So I feel the need to send a very strong message back to Rob.

EVERYTHING Erfworld that you do is wonderful, and the varying media you use only serve to further enrich the story for those real Erfworld fans among us who care about the actual story beyond just the pretty pictures. Furthermore, these Backer stories are proving to be a truly fantastic thank you to the generous individuals who helped fund the comic in the first place, such that I am furiously refreshing my email page more times an hour than i care to count, waiting for this Book 3 Kickstarter to go live so I can get whatever high-backer package there may be.

Everyone has a right to be bummed about the text updates if that's not their thing, that's fine. But to imply that these updates detract from the story is just selfish. Don't listen to them Rob, you've crafted a deep and detailed world here, and there are just as many if not more of us who deeply appreciate all the different ways you give us further insight into it's workings and people.

Well I was providing morale support to you to provide to Rob and Shai_hulud was fixing our lack of Pics, after all a rant isn't a rant with out the right pic.

It was also a reaction shot of MFW he told me only one person should be talking during the rant.

I hope I didn't help inspire this rant. The text stories are wonderful and I check here waaayyyy too much. But yeah, money for the book three kickstart.

Psh naw, I don't ever remember you complaining. I mean the people who register JUST to post a single whiney topic, and are never heard from again.

Oh agreed
I just felt it was high time somebody sent Rob the opposite message so he doesn't take it seriously either :)

So Erfworld is presently a web serial, not a comic. Okay? The written word isn't quite as venerable an institution as drawing, but in serially-published form it's a much more mature medium.

Ah, woo! I was asking because I've occasionally grumbled about preferring the comics to the text updates. But both are free, both are awesome and these text updates were voted for with MONEY! So its not like my complain has much weight. Anyway, I will counter vote when we get the book 3 kickstarter. BWHAHAHAHAHAHA! :twisted:

Anyway, I think they're just garden variety twolls.
