I've got a question:

How many comic makers here play online games such as MMORPGs?

Sorry, that's a no, from me. I haven't had a computer good enough to play a MMORPG without it lagging up a lot. I do, however, enjoy the occassional game of CS when I can get on my brother's computer. At least…before he took it off to college with him.

Assuming that you are of Chinese ethnicity, BigFish. I would like to know what the phrase "nay sick dzoh fan may ah?" means or implies. (I rather not trust this AltaVista BableFish.)

It means all you white guys piss off.

This must be true because I am chinese. Even if I don't speak a word of it, I still am chinese

Some newer DrunkDuck members and some general users are complaining about the hostility between members usually found in these threads, we're trying to stop this.

so… on a “getting to know you… getting to know all about you…” thread we've got people expressing opinions and/or being jerks?

where's the problem? i'd say that fits perfectly with the topic.

here's a question for Garwick and Murphy: when are you guys going to update?! same goes for you, Ian Jay!

this question is also for ozone… “So, did you want to work on that thing with me… about that stuff?” :D
Not much yet, still thinking… also plotting, planning and scheming.

-Yes, Australia is more like how the Simpsons showed it. The whole purpose of the Olympics in Sydney was a big propaganda lie to cover that up. True.
-I don't play MMMMMMMMMMORPORGS, I tried Anarchy online, but it was dulllll.
-I am not female and I am over 25
-hostility is bad ok? don't be hostile about it just because I am hostile to it.

I had a lot of codeine based pills today to combat my headache and my brain is in fairyland right now. Any idea how to get rid of that? (fairyland, not my brain)

I'm under 25 years of age but barely. (23 years old, actually).

I'm female, and proably about the whitest girl you'll ever see, conidsering I'm an goth.

and I do story comics. I tried to do strips once, but nobody got my werid, mulder-type kinda humor. and this was before I discovered DD. so I never once did them again.

I LOVE playing MMorpgs!! playing rpgs and other shooting games are okay, but much more FUN with other players. the same goes for Stragey games (such as clivization III mulitiplayer)… because it's just like you'll never know what the players would do or what they would EVEN say when you do something. you know what I mean? comptuer ais are just so predictable to me.

yes, I do have candy at the moment. halloween coming, baby!!

I live in North Dakota, USA. and no, it's not just all farms and blizzards, and small towns like the popular media out there would like you to believe. that movie Fargo wasn't even made in North Dakota!

is there any questions some people would like to ask me?
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

…lots of “goths” wear white make-up all over their faces… :P
Aurora is really pale anyway, so that makes her double white! I think that was her gist, no philosophy about what it means to be a “goth” or some silly “race” crap.

Do you ENJOY making comics or do you feel it to be more work than it's worth?
Both. It depends on how I feel at the time.

well, to explain Goths more:

we are a type of people who embraces the darkness, sees beauty in all morbid, dark and even creepy things… we embrace and celebrate death but not to the point where we'd be sudical or crazy for it.. just doing that as to remind ourselves why life itself is so precious, and mourn the fact that most people take it for granted.
the “goth” group oringally started out to protest against certain things….such as society becoming something that valued money over life. Hosptials caring more about the bills they hand out being paid more than they did caring for patients, for instance. as well as the degradation of certain values and romatic notions. most of them often wore black to mourn the way humanity seemed to care more about itself rather than for his/her fellow humans. and a lot of us would often start wearing pale makeup to make ourself appear like we could be Death.

and then eventally, the group started losing it's oringal meaning as more and more people came to see Goths as just people who loved black and death way too much, and as people who were depressed 24/7 (which is pretty silly when you think about it), and wrote depressing poetry. and it just got even more worse when teenagers started flocking to it as an outlet for some of thier feelings, and also to get attention… turning the “goth” thing into just a fad for most.

however, for me it is not just a “fad”.. to me it's a way of life, a viewpoint. I don't even need that white makeup anyway. if I wore it, I'd proably glow in the dark from being SO white.
anyway, that's a little history lesson on the goth background to help you understand goths a little bit more.

And a question to spriters: What is the hardest thing to do when you're spriting?

Are you talking making your own “sprites”, or the practise of shamelessly stealing/recolouring/altering someone elses?

'Cause if it's the former… noses. Definitely noses.

Do you ENJOY making comics or do you feel it to be more work than it's worth?

If I have a funny idea, (normally brought about by seeing or reading something that sparks it off) then I enjoy it. It's more work than it's worth to just keep to an update schedule though.

Have no time for games much right now anyway.

I'm not white. :(

Here's a question for all you long time duck users, which version of the site did you like the best? For the beginning to the end, which? For me, I kinda like late 2003-early 2004 version.

Im an American female of German descent, over 25 (since last month). I have two stories on DD of average popularity. I dont play any online games.

My mother always said I'd marry a Japanese guy, but Im proving her wrong by hoping to marry a hispanic guy =)

And I love making comics, but lately it seems like it has detracted me from my more random artwork. Like Im so busy concentrated on the next comic page that I dont draw other things I used to do for fun.

I am FS2 champion! w00t!!

Hmm…question to the Chinese minority group in DD. Are you there?

One right here. Probably a retarded one too.

It means 你吃饭了麽? Nah, it means “Have you taken your food?”

Why do some of the guys here like having female characters as their avatar?

I'd like to know if anyone agrees with me that damn near everyone on the internet takes themselves too seriously. I tire of that.

Because I dislike masculinity and being even remotely masculine.

What's a resonable filesize for an avatar do you reckon?
I reckon anyting over 10k is pushing it… But that's just me.
Avatar file size: what do you guys think?

Less than 200 kb is fine with me. I've got cable, so it'll still load very fast.

I'd rather my avatar be like 40,000 kbs… not too big, but not too small. to me 10,000 kbs is way too small. conidseirng I like to use animated gif avatars in the highest quality possible.

-I've got fast cable too, but comon forum courtesty calls for small file size on trivial image files.

So, we've got one vote for 200K from Rich, and one vote for 40 megabite avatars from Aurora… 40 meg? seriously…? My whole Pinky TA series (excluding the movies) only gets to 10 meg… Wow, one avatar 4 times the size of my archive… o_O

I can do the Robot. Outside of that, I have two left feet.

I'm white.



which would explain why I can't dance.
