EDIT: PT is obviously on hold. The comic will be returning eventually, but I'm not going to give an estimated time right now.I'm very sorry for vanishing off the face of the earth. Life got in, and continues to get in, the way. I'll be back as soon as I can. Thank you (most of you) for your patience and understanding.

Hey, I haven't checked here for a long time, read up on the new pages, and now find you also don't seem to have checked back here in a while...
...drop a line to tell you're alright, okay? Just some post like "Yeah, I'm still kicking". It happened to me once before that a person I knew on the Internet dropped off the Earth without sign. And only 2 1/2 years later did I find out they had died. Of course, that person had been nearly 80, but it was still no bit less sad. The worst thing however was the uncertainty for those years.
So, drop a line, will you? People here are worried, I believe. I know I am worried. :(

Lack of correspondence/activity (on deviantart account as well) should probably have the paypal and TWC vote button stripped off.
If there was a tragedy, enough real life friends of SK's (some who have commented quite a few times in the past) would've notified us.
There are plenty of excellent comics where the author doesn't vanish after promising updates far worthier of a ranking in the 100's than a dead comic that stays afloat with old achievements and repeat sympathy voters.
As I remarked several weeks ago, DD is kind enough to give free webspace to contributing comics. This is no longer a contributing comic to DD. Leave it up for people to idolize if you want but remove the damn paypal and vote functions, as there's enough evidence out there that SK has something better to do than touch base with the people who supported this comic (the reason any of the DD trophies exist.)
That's the issue with the internet, you can vanish and leave behind anything. For all we know her time is spent on another comic far away from DD. Bitter? Sure, it's blocking hard working comic writers from moving higher on TWC.
Paypal? I honestly wonder if a response from SK would be issued if someone dropped a penny on that donation button. Let the undying SK supporters crawl out and scream at this post, maybe one will accidently say where she went in a fit of text rage.
Short version: Vote button and Paypal button piss off people who expect to see what they are promised by the author, only to have six months of silence from that author who put them there.
Get angry, let's see raaaaaaage. Here's a 1 for the single spot denying all the comics below this on TWC from the rank they deserve.
Make a dead comic/hardly updated voting module for this kind of lackluster commitment. Too many real life friends of SK are/were regulars here for there not to be an explanation at this point.
Take down the buttons DD, there is nothing beneficial yielded from them, especially on a mutual level.

Most likely she forgot about DrunkDuck, and won't see these comments.

hi SK you may remember me from such other notable comments as:several on this comic some on all my other fav'd comics and one remark i meant as a joke that got me chewed out by the author (and got half of the other reviewers jumping down my throat (this was on Charby the vampirate) (but they arent anymore cuz i explainedthat it was a joke) anyhoo i just wanted to say if your having difficulty keeping up with a scedual or life prevents you from comicing for any other reason try and ask for peices of artwork from your fans (and also your fellow webcomic authors) that you can update with just as fillers so your fans have something nice to look at every now and then rather then months and months of waiting then have a few minutes of reading then settling down for another wait i am a huge fan of this comic and i understand you are a living being and that when you think you have escaped from your pile of work you get another mountain dropped on top of you (which is why my novel im working on has been on hiatus for nearly a year and a half) but still us fans are living beings too (and genrally have small attention spans when it comes to waiting) and if you dont just give us a small sign that you are alive and haven't forgotten us we will start wandering away (apologies if this is posted twice cause my computer sucks and it might still be loading)

Even if it's just a short note from you, SK, we' the viewing public would like to know that you're at least theoretically capable of resuming this (i.e. you haven't lost fingers to a tragic accident, etc.) -- or that you've officially given up on this. Which would be a shame, because the quality of the artwork is almost unmatchable and the storyline was well-thought-out and developing nicely.

seriously, we're getting all worried:( surely you'd have time to at least tell us that you're okay, or say how things are going... please?
at 12:34PM, Nov. 22, 2008
Hiya, love ya comic. Haven't really written on ya page before - mostly 'cause I've only experienced one update. Still - I hope you're okay (says the unknown person)...

Love the Comic>>> I wish you the best and Hope for your continued well being... it's a bit ominous that there has been no communication from or about you on this or your other comic, Ethos, since May. At this point, We are not asking for a comic update, but a personal update from you or, anyone that's "in the know", that you are alive and well...Thanks, and If we can help, let us know.

And a quick 'in before zealot walls of text adamantly protecting the absent artist's kindness and selflessness against the ungrateful jerk' responses (scroll down for examples) remember this is Drunk Duck, "The Webcomics Community" not "The Webcomic Online Store." Of course it's free, I have one myself (not on this name) and the creators acknowledge this concept upon getting free webspace and lots of HTML freedom to draw exposure/self-promote their work, and even place paypal donation boxes amongst it. Consider this concept before hurling rage and preaching recycled DCDT (Dead Comic Defense Team) rhetoric in response to my previous post; no hurt was intended unless one chooses to percieve it that way. SK will always get a 5 from me either way, for what she DID share. I just hoped for some correspondence at this point. Ignite!

Well, I at least hope SK is alright and nothing bad has happened to her; I'd feel pretty terrible deleting this bookmark. If not, thanks for sharing part of the story, it was amazing; I guess after 4 months without a response from her is a bummer. Don't mistake me for being selfish, I acknowledge that this was all done without pay and lots of time was invested in a free comic, but we invested just as much time supporting it each step of the way. GL in your endeavors if you ever check this, you're an exceptional, gifted artist.
