Edit 2: That’s it, I’m officially calling a week-long hiatus. Red Moon Rising will resume updates on Monday the 10th of August. I really wanted to get page 71 up before this since it’s the last page of the chapter, but the tablet I’m borrowing is giving me wrist cramp, and the order I made for a new tablet has been completely bollixed by Paypal – I now have $400 I can’t access until they decide I didn’t hack into my own account. Still no internet access at my new place and I’ve got a resit for university to be handed in before next Monday. I hate that it’s come down to this, but it’s just not possible for me to keep the comic running right now. Thanks for all the support, and I’ll see you in a week.
Edit: I’ve disabled the Rampage Network footer ad in an attempt to start troubleshooting the redirection issue since the small amount of info I could find on the problem pointed towards a dodgy rotating ad. Again, if you’re still getting redirected from any part of the site please email me or leave a comment on this post.
Firstly, I got an email from a reader today saying that when he went back through the archive around page 56 he was redirected to some sort of yahoo karaoke store. I wasn’t able to replicate the issue, but has anyone else been having similar problems? My initial hunch was a dodgy Project Wonderful ad, but I have no way to be sure.
Secondly, I’m backdating this post to Wednesday but unfortunately this really is properly late now, what with it being about 3pm on Thursday where I am. Kind of sucks to break a run of consistent updates that’s lasted since the start of the comic, but I still don’t intend to miss any, even if they have to go up late. Friday’s page will probably be going up on Saturday (or possibly later, I’m running out of places to access the internet at the moment), and I may have to call a short hiatus in order to get everything sorted on my end. Turns out it’s quite hard to maintain a webcomic without internet access or a proper drawing implement, who knew?
I probably could have posted this on time if I hadn’t had to drop it yesterday in order to properly move everything out of my old flat. My old landlord decided to rip up all the carpets and start painting while we still had stuff in there, despite us still paying rent on the place until Friday. Still kind of pissed off about that… The page itself was finished about 11 hours ago, but there was no way I was going a-wandering through Dundee at 4am in order to wake up one of my friends so I could use his internet connection. I like to think I’m pretty dedicated, but I’m not that dedicated. :|
