oh, right, yeah, the thing where you try to watch Xira cast....... that we definitely never did..... riiiight......

Okay gang! Sorry for the lateness on this one but now I have AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!


After this update, the update schedule for Runewriters is changing in a kind of big way -- I'm gonna try moving to "scene" updates! This means that instead of getting out one page a week, I wait until I've finished 4-5 pages and post them all at once as one "scene."

The main reason for this is that, to be honest, I can't quiiiiiite manage weekly updates right now. I thought over it a lot, and I think constant short hiatuses or skipping updates every couple of weeks aren't great solutions for you guys or for my mental health; I think updating in scenes is gonna be the best way to make sure you guys are still getting satisfying updates!!

If you like this plan, then thank my dear friend and constant encouragement Steph!! She's the one who suggested it!!

BUT if you kinda prefer seeing the pages as they're finished and don't want to wait, I've got an option for ya -- I'm gonna try posting pages early, as I finish each one, on patreon for $1 backers!!

This is super new to me so we'll see how it goes!! I'm excited to try and I hope this will be a good solution for everyone! :D

NOW MY QUESTION FOR YOU IS: when you get an update of four pages at once, would you rather see them posted as individual pages that you click through, like normal? Or would you rather have them all as one long post, like this two page update? I've been giving it some thought but I'm interested to hear you guys' preferences!

OKAY I THINK THAT'S EVERYTHING!! Feel free to ask if you have any questions! If you want to be alerted to the next update, you can see a link to the Runewriters Discord, Twitter, Tumblr, Deviantart, and ComicRocket right above this post -- updates will be posted in all of those places!! thanks as always for the patience and support you've all shown so far while I work this out!! I really truly could not ask for better folks reading this comic, and I'm extremely grateful for you all! ;u;

Manually resigning comments seems like a big hassle; why not just leave the comments on the last page of the multi update in the archives?

OH, the mention of reassigning comments was in response to the person who suggested having a Single Long Page Update to sit on the front page, but all the normal pages in the archive.

This is technically possible for me to do! Using the same system that keeps filler art from ending up in the archive, I could put up each individual page, and then a Long Page as the most recent that doesn't get archived. The problem with that idea, is that any comments on the Long Page would disappear when the Long Page did.

so it is technically possible to have individual pages, with a long page on the home page that disappears and doesn't get archived, and then have me go through by hand and reassign comments to a page that DID get archived, but uh, I'm unsure that's the most ideal solution xD

Ohh, thanks for explainin! Hmm, is there no way to automatically append all comments made on the not-archived longpage to the final page of the individually separate pages that remain in the archive? If you could batch-transfer them manually, that would also be better than having to sort them.
