Oshit.

#2 Chish Tue, 16 Jun 2009 01:29:05
m. the other site doesn't have an RSS feed. Lucky you.

#3 Quint Tue, 16 Jun 2009 16:46:19
Heh. Free advertising.

#4 heranbago Tue, 16 Jun 2009 17:34:48
Didn't get comic. Visited URL. Didn't get comic. Looked up what Paxed is, still didn't get comic.

If I kept researching it could probably be funny but damn that is too much work. Voting poor for inaccessible humor. I want to think there's more here than "other comic is better" + color joke...

#5 xCheckPoint Tue, 16 Jun 2009 19:23:14
@heranbago: Don't blame me for not being able to 'get the comic'. There's a clear reference to a gnome they ported from here to their site (at least 4 different strips at dion's page the last two weeks). Not very hard to make the link that i ported him back imnsho...

#6 acheron Tue, 16 Jun 2009 21:08:37
voted excellent to counter heranbago's un-knowledgeable poor.

plus it made the bars symmetrical.

#7 Manutraveler Wed, 17 Jun 2009 00:34:34
Voted mediocre for keeping absolute simmetry. And because I've never found this "war" between sites really funny, to be honest.

#8 TobyBartels Wed, 17 Jun 2009 01:14:15
The other site is dav's, not dion's. (It looks more like dion's, since it runs a modification of dion's software.)

There's nothing like the original!

#9 eskimo68 Wed, 17 Jun 2009 06:17:28
BTW, one of the reasons I really liked this strip was because the "other site" had a comment like:

"Great. Somehow, lack of color and comfort seems to produce fewer comics, but the really excellent ones gravitate here."

...just the day before this comic appeared. I was thinking, wow, there is always a delay in publishing but THIS TIME, they popped this to the top of the queue. Nice going paxed :). Ok, sometimes I read too much into these comics it seems :D

#10 Quint Wed, 17 Jun 2009 06:41:49
I love the meta-voting and meta-references and meta-jokes that Dudley's Dungeon (in all its incarnations) has offered so far.

Please continue.

#11 xCheckPoint Wed, 17 Jun 2009 08:13:51
That was my intention, Quint :)
@eskimo68: that exact comment gave me the idea for this strip. Let's see if the gnome is a double agent.

Oshit. The current 22322 vote cries for a Dav fan giving me the finger...

#13 Quint Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:23:20
+1 Fair vote.

#14 TJR Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:26:03
You guys made me laugh, especially the comments. I'll vote it excellent as soon as the voting bar symmetry breaks down.

#15 Orl Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:37:16
needed some research, but this will never bother me. Your "double agent" comment made automatically my mouse cursor move over a certain green rectangle...

#16 Orl Wed, 17 Jun 2009 14:38:30
Oh, and, another thing (out of topic): why aren't we getting a comic today? I uploaded a load of comics some weeks ago...

#17 SmashFan2005 Wed, 17 Jun 2009 16:18:15
I uploaded one 2 months ago and it's still not up...=(

But yeah, funny comic

#18 CuleX Wed, 17 Jun 2009 17:08:27
Some comics just don't get activated for some unknown reason.

Voted mediocre, too meta.

Quint: To answer your question from a comment from the 5th of June: I'm named after the SMRPG Villain, yeah.

G "Sir, they've actually got color over there now."

#20 SmashFan2005 Thu, 18 Jun 2009 03:02:07
what the heck? no comics for two days?

What has paxed been doing? :(

#21 xCheckPoint Thu, 18 Jun 2009 08:02:00
Maybe paxed is kidnapped by a Dav-team? My last strip is still in 'not scheduled' state.

#22 paxed Thu, 18 Jun 2009 12:16:05
I'm on holiday, with spotty network coverage.

If I haven't approved your comic, it's probably because it didn't tickle my funnybone, or I didn't understand it, or there are typos or other errors in it.

#23 neovigo Thu, 18 Jun 2009 13:34:39
So, how can we find out the exact reason a strip has been rejected? "Not tickling your funnybone" is probably equal to permanent disqualification of the strip in question, but submitters should be somehow allowed to explain a joke and/or to fix errors, typos etc.

#24 Orl Thu, 18 Jun 2009 14:00:32
CheckPoint, you aren't alone. I have SIX strips not scheduled, and while a few may not be funny, I don't understand why the others didn't get published... Oh, and I agree with neovigo. Some other users may find the unscheduled comic very funny, and there should be a way for paxed to tell us what the errors are.

#25 xCheckPoint Thu, 18 Jun 2009 15:04:01
Oh, now it's scheduled for tomorrow. I hope there's still some funnybones left to tickle with it. It took me a while, and it has undergone massive changes thanks to the long 'scheduled' state :)

#26 Dav Thu, 18 Jun 2009 15:17:04
neovigo/Orl: Submit them over at DD classic. :)

#27 xCheckPoint Thu, 18 Jun 2009 15:44:31
Btw, before I forget this - thanks to paxed for this platform, and have a nice holiday. Relax!

#28 ctaboir Thu, 18 Jun 2009 17:47:29
Reason for "not scheduled" would be nice. Possibility to delete sumitted strips, also. And also, have a nice holiday, paxed!

#29 ctaboir Thu, 18 Jun 2009 17:54:49
And as we are talkin about this, score against submitted strip in our own page would be nice also.

#30 neovigo Fri, 19 Jun 2009 14:36:06
BTW, the current rating of this strip looks rather obscenely ;)

#31 Sorceror Fri, 28 Aug 2009 12:09:44
Voted mediocre to keep the rude finger in shape.

#32 grisha5 Sun, 11 Oct 2015 14:13:17
G, it deserved a G but also I ruined would-be symmetry! Yay!
