Hey guyz. I haven't seen much forum activity in a while so I'm declaring this a "post on the forum already!" thread. Kiwi adores feedback.

Um, I like all the shading in the lastest comic! Yeah, that's what I'll say for feedback!

I've just been waiting for a bit more of the story to unfold before saying anything about that aspect of your web comic.

The artwork is looking really good. Other than that, I've run out of things to say.

Okay. Feedback:

Courtney is adorable with freckles. Also adorable when she's all melancholy-like.

Edit: Also pigtails.

Long time reader and lurker. First time forum poster, I think.

Courtney is such a cute character. Yay!

More later.

I've really enjoyed the Courtnie and Jake sequences. The "I knew you as a little girl and now you're a woman" theme is a fun one. Very Jane Austin.

There're bound to be some lulls in the forum, just as there are bound to be some lulls in the comic. Don't worry though.

As for feedback: More Kiwi! That adorable little bird needs to have more screentime. Everybody loves birds right? In fact, the site should be renamed "Kavalkade o' Kiwi (also featuring Skirting Danger)." Courtney should be a background character, like Robbie & Jase, Marzipan or Galao.

I really love that bird. :D

I was actually going to suggest "Kiwi Komix Kavalkade" first but then I realised what the implications of that might be. Good thing I always re-read my posts before sending them...

I just realized that it isn't just this forum that has slowed to a trickle.

The forums I admin for Josh L and his friends has also shown a dramatic decrease in traffic over the past week. Must be all the people going back to high school and college.

Anyway, I'm really enjoying the movement in the story. Guess that I could go start a seperate thread about it.

But shouldn't there be an increase with people going to school and college? I know Wandering Ones had a slump around Christmas, when people were on vacation and recuperated after the new year...

Also: Yes, we need more Kiwi! :)

The forum is dead because I killed it.

I drew my mighty forum-slaying sword from its jewel-encrusted scabbard and charged. The forum's roar was as the toppling of mountains, the destruction of cities. It met me in the field of single-combat, blow for blow. For hours we fought, too evenly matched for either one to triumph. Its monstrous carapace withstood all but the mightiest of blows, and my armour shielded me from the worst of its attacks. Finally, when both it and I were weak with exhaustion and lack of blood, I summoned the last of my strength and struck it down. Between its compound eyes I drove my blade and it struck sure and true, cleaving the great forum's head in two. In its death-throes it caught me with its lashing, be-spiked tail and I was flung into the air and down into the rocky chasm below.

I do not know how long I lay there, broken, bloodied, dead to the world. I can scarce remember the journey back from that evil place...but this I know:

I slew the forum. The forum is dead.

Rather than start a new thread, I'll just ask this question here.

First off, I loved the picture of Courtney used in the Keenspot Newsbox for Thursday. Did that newsbox ad do anything for the page views or is it too early to tell?

Oh, and I just read the comic for 9/17 just now. Courtney is such a good tracker. "Flower" Shop. Cute. That should keep all the other Flower Shops guessing.

Yes, the newsbox raised the pageviews a whole bunch. I got lots of nice e-mails from new readers. =)

That is a wonderful pic of Courtney. Any chance of that being made into a nice color print? (Thanks for the full view)

I think the problem is a lack of identity stemming from poor self confidence. What this forum needs is a make-over!

First, we'll need a name for the people who post here. We can call the female posters "skirts," and the males posters can be called "dangs."

We'll also need a method of inducting newbies. We can do this by typing farting onomatopoeias after each of their posts. Obviously, I'll be excluded from this tradition.

Finally, this board will need to define itself by vocalizing spite for another site or forum. I suggest we mock Checkerboard Nightmare, and it's use of the word "chowderhead."

While I can't say I approve of or even understand the other suggestions, I feel a heapin' helpin' of vitriol directed towards another comicstrip would do us all a lot of good.
