lefarce, believe me, there's nothing I'd like more than to exclude you from this sort of stuff ;) I'll try and remember in the future, but no guarentees. Now lets just keep this on topic and respectfully remember that it's a thank you thread to DrunkDuck, the staff, and of course Cindermain.
Hey everyone else, you're welcome! It was nice to be able to send out something specially crafted this year to all you guys who make the site great! Cindermain did an awesome job I think! I hope he does more stuff with us in the future!!! I always like stuff that has characters from lots of different comics in one!
I think that it's nice to see so many who ARE appreciative of the time and work we spent into wishing all of you a HAPPY holiday season. ;)
I thought the card was neat. Really very well done.
Of course, when I was asked what I thought should be on the card, I suggested to use the most popular characters on Drunk Duck - figuring that the most recognizable characters interacting with the Duck would be the best way to convey DD's community without making the artist spend the next year trying to include a character from EVERY comic - since that might make the card late. So blame me for that if you wish.
As for the issue of which comics were put on there - come on now people! It's not a personal jab at anyone who didn't make it on there. It was not a competition either. And it's not to say your comic is not “good enough”, or anything of the sort. There will be other contests, cards (perhaps?), promotions, features, etc, in the future! Everyone gets their time to shine! The decision to include some of the most popular characters was not made with the intention of excluding out others who don't get a chance to be seen as much - it was basically the ones who are most familiar and widely read so that people would recognize them in the card. Of course the appropriate credit had to be given to them.
As for the spam issue - Christmas happens once a year - there are so many DD members now - to sit there and personally send each person a Holiday greeting card would be a bit ridiculous… I understand about the “impersonal” feel of “spam”, but understand - we really DO wish EVERYONE a really happy and safe holiday. :)
Here's to the future!
p.s. I'm not debating……. just throwing in my 2 cents…… it's ok if you don't agree with me or do….
