Hello! Hope everyone had a great new year and holiday! Work has started back up again for me, so I won’t be on here as much as I will be too busy drawing the actual comic! Here is 2013′s first Dev Blog update!
Tumblr’s Ask Feature
Got a question regarding the Crazy Sunshine universe, characters, or history? Good! You can use the “Ask” link on the top menubar in order to ask me through Tumblr! Don’t have a Tumblr account? You can E-mail me here!
Interesting questions will be posted publicly, whereas personal questions will be answered privately. Additionally, questions regarding spoilers for upcoming comics, such as “How did Candy meet Peppermint?” or “Why is Shelbie an idiot?” will be rejected. Can’t give away too much information, can we? It would ruin the surprise!
Spam Comments & Common Courtesy
It seems posting a “Top 5 Commenters” ranking in this blog entry was a mistake, as certain readers now think it is okay to post 15-20 comments per strip. There will be no more “Top Commenters” lists from now on, so please do not flood each comic’s comment section with a billion posts. I have marked over 20 comments as spam today alone.
If you have any questions not regarding the comic in question, please use Tumblr or E-Mail me as requested above. Further abuse of Crazy Sunshine’s free comment section will result in all comments being personally screened, and certain IP Addresses being filtered.
I love reading comments, but hate it when things get derailed. I hope you understand.
Lastly, don’t be a dick. No insults, no elitism. See something you don’t like about the comic? Shoot me and E-Mail. See something that makes no sense? Who cares, it’s a comic. Calm down and take your rants elsewhere.
Chatty Sunshine & Discussion
Chatango’s chat box was a pretty neat feature, but nobody seems to be using it. It will be removed by the end of the week to speed up page load times.
Until a better method of discussion is developed (such as a forum), please feel free to use the myriad of social media services to discuss the comic. The Facebook group alone has over 1,000 members and is dead silent 90% of the time!
That’s all for this month! Thanks for your co-operation in helping keep the site clutter-free, and for using all these great social media features. Here’s to a great new year, cheers!
