I should point out for the readers that Saiamar isn’t dead yet.

Hey, it’s a jolly Christmas update! Normally I post filler, but that’s usually because I’m thoroughly unprepared for being away from my drawing station for the week around Christmas. This time however, I thought ahead and drew the page… beforehand? I believe it’s called… a buffer?? Anyway, hope everyone had a nice Christmas and is having a lovely boxing day.

Also, I really appreciate all the donations. :) Definitely got enough to cover a heater, and the rest will be going towards food and thick socks and other boring yet important things. I’ll be adding a permanent donation button (tip jar? there seems to be some debate) to the sidebar as soon as I can draw up a wee graphic for it.

On a related note, I want to start making a concerted effort to upgrade the site, so! If you’ve got anything that you want changed or added to the site, let me know in the comments below. I’ll start chipping away at stuff over new year. I realise not many people will be reading the bottom of this big boring news post right around Christmas, but if you are that just means you’re hardcore and have a better opinion than everyone else. Pipe up!

Gallery!!!

Of your art and fanart. That is what I want to see. =D

Man, I had honestly completely forgotten about the gallery. There was originally one there before the site got hacked for the first time, but I never got around to rebuilding it. I’ll try and have it up before the end of January!

“Support the Risharan Resistance. Donate here!” :D

Yes, a gallery would be pretty awesome. Or an archive of old vote incentives.

Also, Danil’s a cold-hearted ass. (As if we didn’t know that already.)

An archive of old vote incentives actually wouldn’t be that difficult at all. TWC does a pretty good job of keeping them organised on my account on their website, so out of everything on the site they’re actually quite well preserved, especially since I hosted them on Photobucket. Should have that up soon. :) Plus the gallery, of course.

Also, “Tip-jar” or “Donate” – i don´t care about the name of the thingy. Just make it clear for us dense germans what it´s good for. ;)

“Support the Artist! Now and here!” could do. :)

I feel like a tip jar with a few coins in it linking to a paypal donation page should be self-explanatory? Hopefully? Something a bit like this though obviously more in keeping with the overall style of the comic and website. I could probably have “support the artist” or “support the comic” on it as well just to be clear.

Yes, i´d recommend an additional explanation. We use the exact word “Tip” or “Tips” here in Germany, but it means “advice” like in “ask the doctor”, so there would be confusion (“tip” translated to german is “Trinkgeld”). And a nice pic surely would help. HTH, and Happy New Year to you!

OLD VOTE INCENTIVES! So that Galak with his hair tied back can live on forever.

Allsooo, for the donate button graphic, could you please draw hobo Galak? :D

That would be funny.

Danil, why are you so meeeaaannn?

Vote incentives, definitely! Added to the list. :) As for hobo Galak, I unfortunately suspect that might not be clear enough. I’m sure it was better in your imagination anyway.

Also, Danil is mean for reasons only Danil knows.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we hardcore-types simply want more Awesomesauce on the site.

The exact definition of Awesomesauce is perhaps not quite so easy to pin down. (I personally think it means, “whatever the hell the author wants to put on the site, because it’s all good.”)

………

Also, I’m really, really glad he’s not dead yet. Saiamar, I mean. He’s a compelling character, and I’d like to postpone his death as long as possible.

Whatever suits you darlin’. I’ve always believed in KISS and keeping the focus where it belongs, on the content.

There are a number of sites that have a tip-jar and call it that. KEZ and Katfeet both have one. Folks don’t mind tossing a busker a tip but tend to hold back from donating to charities. But, it’s your call.

I’m glad you got enough scratch for some heat and woolins. You need to stay hale and hearty so that we can get to the end of this tale ;)

There should be no shame, at all, in at the very least asking for some funds to cover the costs of hosting and art supplies.

Plus, TWC top 100 woo! Let’s keep voting folks.

Fortunately, my art supplies bill as a digital artist is pretty limited. I could do with a new graphics card one of these days since my current one is over five years old, but otherwise… it’s not like I need to buy big vats of oil paint. Though the hosting is a good point. The advertising does cover it and then some, but the amount of time I put into the comic is akin to a hefty part time job, so… well, any and all money is appreciated and wisely invested.

Also, thanks for voting. :) I’ll try and update the incentive soon.
