#116--Bonus Comic!



Many apologies to Journey. Really. I can't apologize enough. :P

Several years ago, I used to moderate message boards. At one point, I was modding three separate boards at once. Let me tell you, it is a thankless job. You work hard to keep a place from devolving into chaos, and everyone hates you for it. Theme songs make the dirty work a little brighter!



I think the vote incentive was a real success, and I enjoyed making the extra page. So this might become a regular feature! :D I love this page so much, I've made icons! The icons for this page come in regular and LOLspeak versions.



News: This is the last week to get the current donation incentive wallpapers. New wallpapers will be uploaded next week. So if you want the "Comic Shop" or "+10 HP Helmet" wallpapers, please visit the KT Tip Jar Page.

I'm sorry, it may be because it's after midnight where I am right now, but I'm not recognizing the Journey song used. *^_^*

Otherwise, love the user names, the topics are amusing, and I see Minty's perusing her comics at the same time. :D

OMG!!! I can so relate!!! I modded on one message board for several years (97-03), stopped for a year and then went off to build my own Bonanza site with some friends which has been running for 4 years now. We know all too well how thankless a job it is. Not to mention the building on it you have to do to keep interest up and making sure all the tech stuff and code runs right in the background. I understand all of this too, too well, will have to remember this song. ;)

Thankfully, I only had to maintain the code on one of those boards. It's such a pain!

Deadpool vs Superman? Hmm...that's a toughie.

About as tough as Darth Vader vs. Optimus Prime...

I definitely thought of you when I chose Deadpool. XD

This could be a number of boards but I regonise every single one of those topics from one in particular when it was frequented by so called legit trolls who have thankfully moved on!
Loved this one!

My favorite is "I'm bored." Well, duh! So is everyone else on the forum. That's why they're there! :P

The username "NOTWhyNotMe" was the biggest laugh for me. But you've hilariously captured the essence of trolls everywhere throughout.

The word bubbles this week are beautiful. I love the circle insets of Minty, too. /geeking out

I think this might be my favorite KT so far, both story-wise and visually. I really spent some time on this one--two days!

Yay extra comic!
I bet you had fun making up usernames XD I also like how Minty mods a Batman fan-board!

This was a pleasant surprise for me waking up early on my day off. This made it worthwhile.

Adorable! And I feel for you! Boards can be a big pain. *hugs her LJ*

Trolls are precisely what drove me and my group of friends to LJ in the first place. *nods*

Modding....Haha...and yet another reason I'm closing my HW community--thankless, thankless, thankless, except for the like 8 people who work hard to bring cool stuff to it.

(Nabbed the Wolvie Surprise icon!)

LOL! All must bend to the will of LadySnark. Theme songs make the job easier, as do multiple cans of soda and special mod-power antennae, apparently! I love that Minty just wears those around the house sometimes. ^_^

Very nice job integrating the message board into the comic. I like the layout you used.

All things can be conquered with a few cans of soda! Except maybe a blood pressure test. XD

I fussed and fought with that layout for three hours. o_O I'd originally tried to fit it into the usual size layout, but it either cut out too many threads or made the text so tiny you couldn't read it. So much fussing!

This is awesome. It also makes me not sad that I am no longer on the boards I used to frequent, LOL.

I think it's a law of the Internet that, sooner or later, every message board is taken over by jerks. I don't miss it!

A few of the references are esoteric to me, but I can feel the pain about having to delete repeatedly. It also makes me glad that being a mod at the Arena isn't thankless. :)

Though this summer has been a pain for drama-style trolls. Folks who seem legit at first and then have a skillion sob stories and they also use quite shady practices.

Give me the spam trolls any day. ;)

Hey, you Arena mods take your fair share of flack! You do seem to get thanks every now and then, though.
