If the "new adventures" push a 24 hour unposted adventure to page 2, only then will I consider it to be a problem. Cataract, on the other hand, really hates it.

It's not really a problem. That's just a way for me to make fun of the side of myself that gets angry at the new people -- especially since I only joined recently myself.

edit: cataract?

So as someone who gets text-heavy, sometimes I get suggestions that get a little long and prose-y on their own.

I find these a little bit tricky, because I don't want to just take someone else's words and stick them in a story that's meant to be my words. And just rewriting them doesn't feel like an adequate way to do an update.

I try to resolve this by adding something to the suggestion. I take what's there, or at least most of it, and add whatever feels necessary to make it my own.

What I'm getting at is, I posted a really long Swamped update and it's basically Bob's fault.

I just now saw this!

I love Swamped and I am not sorry.

I will say that suggestions are still just that, and they can be ignored or picked from at the author's will. Swamped has the difficulty of only having 1-3 suggestions at a time. And DF has that unique quality in an author that tries to incorporate whatever the readership suggests, regardless of what direction the story may be going. (With the exception of a few early jokey moments).

More folks should suggest in swamped! There's a constant need to develop character backgrounds, relationships, and events. I see it a fun excersize in connecting characters. Maybe this person mentioned 20 updates ago has some talents useful to this situation? or maybe we're about to run into a new character who has been acting in the background this entire time? The daily update schedule really lets readers influence the world building in a way few other adventures have.

Spoiler :
maybe I should give myself a character limit on my suggestions though...

You should probably keep them at most half the length of the average update.

To everyone who's been keeping track of Art of Domination, made a recent edit to it about the latest delay. I was planning on putting up an update on 25 October but my grandmother passed away and my dad almost died on the same night due to internal bleeding, so now things have only just stopped being hectic. I should update it before Halloween comes round.

Sorry to hear about your loss, and I hope your dad's okay.

Don't rush yourself on our account; if you're having trouble working because it's an emotional time, take as much of a break as you feel you need.

Looking forward to the update whenever you can manage it.

Yes, it is good. I may not have the time to read all of them but I love seeing people make things.

Man, I can't wait to finish my imageboard adventure and redo it here with better execution and stuff.

@Schazer: Soon™, just a few more weeks (months if I factor in my incompletes/supplementary tasks)

Not gonna lie, doing One Through Ten is the most fun thing I've done in a long time. I had a couple very short lived adventures back on the MSPA forums, but I always ended up shooting myself in the foot by trying to put too much effort into making the art looked polished. It made making the adventure a chore as opposed to a scribbly "unwind after a long day of work" sort of thing. It also puts a very happy feeling in my chest to see people really taking it seriously and strategizing. It means a lot to me!
