Hey everyone! I'm back! Did you miss me? I had a little computer trouble...
In the meantime, I was incredibly put off by the end of Time. I still don't really believe it...I've had the tab open ever since, just in case... Anyway, idle hands do Basement Cat's work, so I put together a little something to keep us going and hopefully breathe some life into the OTT. So without further adieu, in honor of my 888th
post (8 is my favorite number), I present to you:
- What is WNIV? Is it a replacement to Time?
No, in fact my original plan was to create something a little more homestuck-esque, hence the text below each frame. Still not sure whether I'll keep that or not, but I think it would add something to whatever narrative we end up creating. Either way, creative and efficient as we are, I am doubtful we could produce enough content for a frame per newpix, so we'd have to have a one or two per day model.
- Are you trying to be Randall, foolish mortal?
Quite the opposite. I am fully aware of my mortal being, and as such humbly request YOUR assistance in continuing with this project! I made a submission page for people to submit potential frames or frame sequences for the comic, but that's only the beginning. There are better web coders on this forum than I, and more creative artists as well - This project will continue evolving as, hopefully, more people get involved. Or everyone will ignore it and it'll die. I dunno! We'll have to wait (for it) and see.
- Hey, can you add <feature name here>?
Contact me via PM for specific feature requests, as though I've read the entire thread so far, I'm not always the most careful reader and may miss your feedback!
I love you guys, and am firmly in opposition of abandoning the OTT! If this doesn't work out, I'm sure we'll find some other project to concentrate our creative powers on, though I really do hope this works out.
If there's a specific thing I need from anyone here, it's a more permanent place to host this. I'm hosting it on my own website for the time being, hence the strange aperture-logo favicon, but my website's going to be falling apart soon and I don't want this to suffer from administrative negligence, especially as I'm heading off for a lengthy family road trip in a wip or two. I'd also like volunteers for a few responsible comic-masters who can control which frames get published to the main page - there's no interface for that yet, but it's next on my todo list. AluisioASG and Latent22 get first dibs as they had an extremely similar idea and were eager to support this project!
Anyway, much apologies for my having been so infrequent here lately - I was busy with my summer class, but that's done now, and I've done my 888 post gimmick, so I'll be back to my usual posting habits
Happy Waiting all, and may all your rafts giraft (or something of that nature).
