Chapter 3 begins!

...So we're back here again. I'm sure it'll end well this time, right?
__________

New site! Going with a latest-page-on-front idea for now, though I may go back to using a portal on the main page with a preview. We'll see. Still working on a few links, so not all the site pages are up yet. But take a a look around; let me know if you see any coding problems.

I'm on the fence about the whole Hide/Show comments thing. Opinions?

Looking forward to getting this chapter going! Let's dooeet.

EDIT:
Oh, right, you can also now navigate quickly through pages by using the arrow keys on your keyboard. Yessss.

I think it's quite snazzy :o

Also, this can only go well for Locke.

Also also, posting a comment to see how the show/hide works...

3rd Nov 2011, 11:04 PM

Curse you for your long name, xXo0O-KiLlErDaShSePiRoTh19921337SkIlLzYo! Curse yooouuuuuu~

3rd Nov 2011, 11:21 PM

Mwah hah haaaaaah!

Show/ hide is a lot more impressive when there's so many comments. :P

4th Nov 2011, 7:06 PM

D: AAAAAAAAAAAAA IT'S SO DAAARK!!!!

Locke's environment is dark too.
Everything is dark
and cold
and scaryyyy ;-;

3rd Nov 2011, 11:05 PM

Nyohohoho~ >:3

4th Nov 2011, 6:41 PM

Locke is so handsome and brooding on this page. Great expression!

Also, I like the new site!

3rd Nov 2011, 11:11 PM

Locke has his moments. *o*

Thank you~!

4th Nov 2011, 7:05 PM

Are you going to get rid of the overview? Glad to have WTS back!

3rd Nov 2011, 11:12 PM

Thanks! It feels great to be posting pages again!

For now, yeah. I think the general opinion is that people like having the latest page on the front.

I can see both pros and cons to it, though. I mean, when I'm new to a comic, I don't like having something potentially spoiled by seeing the latest page first.

But having a portal with a blog usually means that the blog goes unnoticed by a lot of people, and it's awkward to try to comment on the blog when it's separated from the latest page. :I Plus it's an extra click.

If I start hearing concerns about having the latest page on the front, I can always switch things around~

4th Nov 2011, 7:10 PM

Sign me up for the 'prefers it this way'.. I'm not terribly keen on having to click a button to see comments, but I can understand why you did it from a design perspective.

4th Nov 2011, 10:58 PM

All right! I think it's been pretty unanimous so far that I should keep the latest page on the front. Then again, people who are bothered by it are probably new readers who don't feel that they can say so. Who knows? D:

Yeah, I'm still debating over the Hide/Show thing... I'll give it another update or two to think about it.

6th Nov 2011, 1:51 PM

:C

3rd Nov 2011, 11:29 PM

Love the new layout *o*

Also yay more WTS again

3rd Nov 2011, 11:31 PM

Thanks! Yessss, finally~

:C One day you'll get first comment again.

And then read my comic after you've claimed it. >:I

4th Nov 2011, 7:12 PM

More Evilocke wooop!

I like the idea of having the latest page in the first page, saves that one extra click. It isn't much, but still.

3rd Nov 2011, 11:31 PM

Ahahahahmaybe. 8I

Yeah, it's kind of nice! I like that people can actually comment on my blog instead of the awkward transition between blog + page.

4th Nov 2011, 7:15 PM

sweet page layout :) also liking the easy navigation with the arrow keys :)

4th Nov 2011, 3:45 AM

Thank you! I know, right. It's so convenient! Also I'm terribly lazy.

4th Nov 2011, 7:16 PM

Ooooh I'm loving the new look!

4th Nov 2011, 4:33 AM

Thank you~! :D A change is nice one in a while, I think.

4th Nov 2011, 7:17 PM

It's really weird how the way your web page looks changes the whole mood of the chapter. Keep it up, I like it. Also the arrow key thingy is awesome. I like the hide/show button but I think the comments here are going to biased against it due to the fact that the majority of people that will most likely like that button probably don't post.

4th Nov 2011, 5:45 AM

Mm, I could almost say that it's intentional! But really I'd been meaning to go with a darker theme for quite a while. I think it helps make colors pop. o_o

I am quite fond of the arrow thingy, for sure!

That's true. I haven't actually heard anything negative about the Hide/Show comments feature yet. I think it's nice for people who aren't really interested in comments, and it keeps the pages looking tidy~.

That's right, you heard me! All of you are cluttering up my lawn. Dag-nab kids!

And I love you all for it. *-*

Plus I like hitting Hide/Show a couple times and watching the comment scroll up and down. I'm easily amused.

4th Nov 2011, 7:23 PM

This site is wonderful, and it makes me happy.

4th Nov 2011, 5:45 AM

Thank you, sir! You are wonderful as well. *-*

4th Nov 2011, 7:24 PM

:D

One criticism- hide show comments gets mildly annoying when there get to be a lot of comments, especially now that you've added the reply feature (which I like)

4th Nov 2011, 8:10 PM

Yes, I agree. D: I had to wait quite a bit for the comments to scroll down.

I...I wasn't expecting so many. D8 I am overwhelmed with happiness~. But now I need to decide what to do with this Hide/Show thing. I've made it scroll faster, but it can only go so fast when it's loading the comments...

4th Nov 2011, 8:42 PM

Well the making it go faster thing actually seems to have made a world of difference on my computer, but I could see how if people had slower connections it could be a problem. But whatever. This site design rocks.

4th Nov 2011, 9:27 PM

Ah, good! It's made a difference on both my computer and iPod, too. I'll have to do a bit more thinking and testing to see if I can make it better overall.

Thank youuu~ *o*

6th Nov 2011, 1:53 PM

Fancy fancy. I'm liking the new site. Lots better than mine.

4th Nov 2011, 5:50 AM

Thank you! I'm just a stickler for customized sites. Sometimes I think that I might go overboard with features.

...pfff.

4th Nov 2011, 7:25 PM

SO AWESOME.

Love the new color scheme. Love the quick navigation. Love the new banner (and I love Madoc just straight chillin' in the background like "Hey, just here with my friends!). Maybe if the default was set to show the comments first, though... >.>

The new page is effing sweet! Sets such a great mood... o.o

4th Nov 2011, 6:43 AM

Yaaay! Thank you for helping me with it! *-* If left to my own devices, the teal and gray would be switched and monochromatic and boriiiing.

I wish I could figure out how to have the comments automatically showing on the latest page, but then automatically hiding on the all the previous pages. That would be ideal. But I don't know how to do that, or even how to make them automatically shown. D:

Madoc's more like... "I'm not with them, but I'm trying to look like I am so that I can get close and kill them all." D8

Thank you, sir! This takes me back to my Prologue days. *~* I miss these easy backgrounds.

4th Nov 2011, 7:29 PM

EDIT: Dangit, I missed all the other comments...

I love the new layout. The arrowkey movement is an awesome idea. I'm excited for this. :D

4th Nov 2011, 7:32 AM

Thanks so much! :D

Yeah, the arrow navigation is great! I can't take credit for the idea, though, since it's something I just snagged from the Code Snippet thread on the CF forums~.

Hope to keep your excitement throughout the whole chapter! \o-o\

4th Nov 2011, 7:31 PM

I like the new look!

4th Nov 2011, 8:04 AM

Thank you, Sir Ryan C.! :D

4th Nov 2011, 7:32 PM

w00t!

4th Nov 2011, 8:29 AM

:O Fingerwitch! Yaaaaay~

4th Nov 2011, 7:32 PM

DAAAAAAARK D8

4th Nov 2011, 9:17 AM

wow
cool

4th Nov 2011, 2:52 PM

Yessssss. D: DARKNESSSSSS.

4th Nov 2011, 7:33 PM

Wow! just got on and to my surprise, it has changed!

4th Nov 2011, 2:49 PM

And, also, is there anyway that you could color that page? the one on i think page 77

4th Nov 2011, 2:56 PM

Yes indeed! It was about time for a new layout~.

I will definitely get around to coloring that page eventually! I just have to find time to do it...

4th Nov 2011, 7:34 PM

I kinda like that page uncolored.

At the very least, you should keep a link to the original. ;)

8th Aug 2012, 10:31 PM

Your layout is a lot better. :D

4th Nov 2011, 3:59 PM

I am quite pleased with how it came out. *-* So many new features, aaaaaaa~

4th Nov 2011, 7:35 PM

I prefer going directly to the comic.

4th Nov 2011, 4:16 PM

That seems to be the prevailing opinion! I think it will stay like this for a while. :)

4th Nov 2011, 7:36 PM

Is looking beautiful. But you have some twenty comments of that already. So now to come up with a unique comment....

I love the use of color, it really relays an emotion of tranquility to juxtapose the calamitous and often pernicious events of the turbulent story. The peaceful blue surrounded by the jet black border, lays out the true theme by giving an allusion to the evil nature that surrounds Locke, the boy in blue. The seemingly ambient and neutral out look of the author strip directly relates to the neutral and out of story while still having a direct hand and a moajor hold in the plot. And of course, the ingenious use of making navigation through out the comic with simple clicks as opposed to the indirect pattern of the earlier format tells of how this chapter will be of less focus on questions, and will concern answers instead.

And the best part is! No one will read^

4th Nov 2011, 4:50 PM

I read it... O.o lol
Sounds like something my cousin would write. And ditto to all above.

4th Nov 2011, 5:30 PM

...It's like you just wired yourself into my subconscious, tutter.

I'd be terrified if I wasn't so impressed!

4th Nov 2011, 7:37 PM

FINALY :D

4th Nov 2011, 5:20 PM

Yessssss!

Nice goggles, by the way. :O

4th Nov 2011, 7:37 PM

thanks i like your goggles too, where did you get them?

5th Nov 2011, 8:36 AM

Doooood. You are awesome, Kristy. :D Love the new layout, LOVE the arrow browsing, love the new page!

Srsly . . . awesome job with the red streaks. I love the abstractness, and that it could be smoke, blood, trees . . . or just atmosphere . . . so cool. XD

4th Nov 2011, 5:47 PM

Yaaaay, thank youuu! :D

Yessss~ *-* And it's so much easier to draw than a forest, haha~

6th Nov 2011, 1:49 PM

Man, in the last panel Locke looks goooood. Well, not GOOD, but still... dang, boy.
And I like the new site setup!

4th Nov 2011, 8:19 PM

I can't say Locke enjoys that place very much. :c And who can blame him! Come on, Locke, cheer up. D:<

Thank you! I like this layout much better than the old one~.

6th Nov 2011, 1:49 PM

ORALEE AND THE BIRD YAY

4th Nov 2011, 10:39 PM

I need to draw Oralee and the bird together. :D Eventually!

6th Nov 2011, 1:41 PM

:O :O TIIITE I love the site layout. Very simple and...dark. I've always liked dark. Easy on the eyes. And yessssss....chapter three :3

Edit: lol I thought I was the first person to comment because of the hide/show thing.

5th Nov 2011, 1:32 AM

I like dark layouts better, too. *-* The previous design just had a bit too much lightness, I think. This suits the story better too, I think.

Haha~ Maybe I should put the "Post a Comment" button inside the Hide/Show slider...

6th Nov 2011, 1:41 PM

i like this start. its dark, but interesting :o

and the new page layout is amazing. much easier to look over now c:

5th Nov 2011, 6:02 AM

Thanks! *-*

Yessss, I'm finding it much easier and convenient to keep track of everything, too. It used to be a cluttered mess back on my end. :|

6th Nov 2011, 1:39 PM

indeed.
you should make the show/hide commenst button a bit more marked tho :U

6th Nov 2011, 3:05 PM

I looked at the bottom, clicked Hide/Show Comments...

And my browser almost crashed.

O.o

5th Nov 2011, 2:42 PM

Just couldn't handle all the awesome comments. D:

6th Nov 2011, 1:37 PM

I am impressed with this.

5th Nov 2011, 5:21 PM

Thank you! :D

6th Nov 2011, 1:37 PM

I like the new banner. :D

6th Nov 2011, 3:14 PM

Nice new look; I always like to see the latest page right up front, because I'm lazy.
Hiding comments? I suppose if they're, you know - those kind of comments...

6th Nov 2011, 7:51 PM

'grats on 300

Also I dislike the hide/show comments business
it messes up my internets, and I have to wait ten minutes while the comments scroll down to leave a comment or check a reply

6th Nov 2011, 11:17 PM

Yeah, seems like it might be a problem when comments start to add up. I'll give it an update or two to see what happens. D:

7th Nov 2011, 12:09 AM

I want to spend my time wake-the-sleepersing, instead of scrolling :C

7th Nov 2011, 12:14 AM

It is gone now. o-o

8th Nov 2011, 10:28 AM

So this whole time, we've been treated to the Tarentino effect? XD
