Had I chosen to support Erfworld and become a tool on January 1, 2011, by now I would have spent $27, and gotten nothing new. To my knowledge, there have been no subscriber-exclusive content posted this year. If I canceled now, that money could not be redeemed unless I bought some product I didn't really want.
Yeah, and you'd have $0 in store credit, but $27 in store credit here. We're not taking money for what you get as a subscriber, we're asking you to bank money for future purchases and rewarding those who do with subscriber-only content, a badge, and ad-free surfing. And there's been a ton of Toolbox-only content posted. So, the point you created this alt to make is flat wrong.
You know, there's a lot of dickery and sock puppetry in this thread. A lot of One Rule violations. I'm closing this thread, because it's been at the top of this forum hijacking the discussion for too long.
I'll say this much:
1) We're doing the best that we can, I do solemnly testify (in the original definition of swearing on my own testicles).
2) No complaint to me or other fans can do anything to help Erfworld. You're just spreading your own misery around. The only outcome of the pissing and moaning is to detract from other people's enjoyment of what's here.
3) What's holding up the updates will not be publicly shared, but it involves some really horrendous personal shit in the lives of one or more of the creators. And if you did know what it was, you'd feel like a complete asshole.
4) If you feel another comic is more deserving of your support, leave here and go support that creator. Read Erfworld if you like it. Support our efforts if you feel we're doing good work. Make your own webcomic if you feel like showing us how it's done. But if you're out to make the comic less fun for other people, then you are worse than "no reader" and I don't want you here at all.
