OKAY! We’re back. For now. Sorry to everyone for flaking on you all due to sickness, injury and tiredness. Check back in tomorrow for another one!
Fingers crossed that I haven’t lost all of you yet…
IIIII’m still here and I’m digging the designs for the digging crew, mwaha. You always have such interesting background characters
What makes you think you’ll lose any of us? I’m hyped for what comes next and I wouldn’t miss it for the world!
You’ll have to stop updating for much longer than a day or two to lose me. I’m still checking in on a couple comics that stopped updating years ago in the hopes that they’ll someday continue updates. Sometimes (only sometimes) I’ll eventually lose that hope and remove a comic from my rotation, but that never happens any sooner than a few months after updates have stopped. Even if you announced the comic was ending (please don’t do that) it would probably stay in my rotation for a few months before I got around to removing it.
you’d have to go on a proper hiatus – a couple of months atleast – before I’d stop regularly checking your comic for updates. And I’m sure I’m not the only one with that sentiment.
I’ll NEVER stop checking this comic for updates. I put it in my RSS feed for precisely that reason, because I’m too interested in what happens.
Speedball, I think making it this far in the comic proves we all love it too much to quit just because you’re a few days late.
*Points to a giant sign that reads “Your health comes first!”*
And I stand by that. If you need time off, it’s fine. A few days for an extra update is fine.
There are other comics that I’ve waited months and years for new updates, and Dragon Doctors will get the same patience from me.
My first thought was that she was put off by the records having been changed to match, but then I remembered how Lee Smith died…
hmm.. looks like the records did.. change somehow.
Well, it took me over a year to give up hope on Crowbar Benson. (And I just checked again. Nothing new.) Your comic is quite a bit more fascinating. It’ll take time to lose me, you’ll have to try for that one.
Wow, that reminds me – I’d be mega jazzed if Sea of Insanity started updating again. It went on a three-year break at one point but came back for a while once before.
*googles “Crowbar Benson”*
Well, the author apparently has one hell of a schedule, not having been able to change the “Updated […] usually once a week.” note in four years. Which reminds me of Olympus Overdrive.
Oh and, Death and the Maiden is quite allowed to start updating again, by the way. Springiette, too. Anyway, I’ll add Sea of insanity to the list of my quasi-finished webcomics soon enough, I guess.
Oh, I forgot Turbo Defiant. That one apparently stopped updating before I even started reading, yet still claims to update weekly. To many of the webcomics I read seem to die an untimely death. (There are probably still more, but having 367 open tabs ironically doesn’t make it easier to keep tabs on everything.) Also, I read to many webcomics, but that’s another matter. (=
I’m not up to 367 comics yet, but I have quite a few. I have them sorted by update day in a designated folder called Web Comics. If they update multiple times in a week, I have a copy of the bookmark in each day that it updates. Every morning I go to my computer and open the webcomics for that day. I’ve accumulated so many comics for each day that I’ve separated the weekday folders into subfolders (Monday 1, Monday 2, etc.) and I open those folders one at a time (via right-click –> open all bookmarks). After I read the updates for those comics, I open the next folder. It’s not perfect, but it works pretty well.
@Jay: That is literally the system I use. Except that I call them “Monday #1” and “Monday #2”. 😀
Not all of those are comics, I’m not that bad yet. But I like to keep ’em open and randomly load the comics that should update that day one by one, whenever I feel like reading that particular one. Being organized sounds boring, I want to be surprised. It’s especially nice to forget about a comic for a week or month and then reading a bunch of it at once. I could never do this intentionally, I don’t have the discipline.
And what do you guys do with stuff like Oatmeal or PBF, that updates chaotically?
@Rorror: I can’t speak for Jay, but my usual pattern is *refresh* Aww, still in Memphis. *refresh* Aww, still in Memphis. *refresh* …
Hm – the sticker for the year came off.
If it’s anything like my dad’s filing cabinets, only some of them are consistently numbered or labeled, haha.
Again, if you need time off, take it. Please, do let us know that you’re just taking some time and are okay so we don’t worry. But seriously, take whatever time you need. Even it’s a long stretch, we make take a little while to get back, but we will be back.
There are comics that haven’t updated since 2009 that I still check just in case, so take your time, and put self-care first.
And I’m guessing that Smith’s records (and possibly her corpse, down to the DNA level) were changed along with everything else.
It takes WAY more than that to get rid of me.
Speed, you wanna lose me, you’ll have to either delete the whole side or go on an unannounced hiatus for more than a year. That’s the minimum it would take with comics I like.
Also what hariman said: Health first!
And on the comic: I get the impression the files changed as well. Seriously, what’s a few files if you already managed to change the minds of anyone knowing Mori?
Oh dear. That can’t be good.
Not that I’m surprised. If it affects memories, it’ll surely affect photographs. And time. At least according to McFly’s Theory of Time Alterations.
This exact solution was proposed by readers, and it’s being used…so good on Sarin…except I can read Sarin’s expression.
The demons wrecked things so badly even THIS won’t work.
Stop reading because the comic is a few days late? Ppfffft. The last time Cat Legend updated was September First. I still check it for updates. I’m not going anywhere.
Yeah, you ain’t getting rid of us that easy.
Wait. So warping magic is contagious? Or is the engineer suggesting the wood will “unwarp.” Ok, that’s a scary thought. All the people who had work done by her could have it come undone? Or be corrupted by it? Eeesh.
I’m guessing that normally Priscilla would have used her magic on the wood just to cause the effect, like toasting bread, rather than fill the wood with magic, like setting the bread on fire. But I don’t know.
Definitely still here, definitely still excited about the story.
I’m another person who would take some time to scare off. Like months. Don’t you have readers who came over when you transfered from the duck comic website or something like that?
Because of your erratic updates, I think I check your site more often than I check another comic that updates M-F just after midnight.
Yeah. I’m one of those who used to read Dragon Doctors when it was hosted on Drunk Duck, though I may not have commented then? I don’t remember. But yes, even the site crashing and staying completely unavailable for months didn’t deter me from finding Dragon Doctors again.
