Kimono's Townhouse News and Announcements

Hey, everybody! I have some news and announcements, and since it's long, it gets its own entry.

Yes, We Updated
Kimono's Townhouse did update late yesterday, in case you missed it. I try to avoid updating late, and I have a good record so far. If the comic is going to be late, I put up a "OMG I'm late!" note as a placeholder. I replace the note with the comic instead of doing a new entry because I don't like having entries with no comic in them. (Entries like this one! Arg.) If I'm late again in the future, I will be more clear about where readers should look for the update. I understand that they get lost on your friends page.

KT is All Ages
KT is rated All Ages, but that rating does not extend to the KT LiveJournal. I am not responsible for reader comments, nor do I want the job of policing or censoring comments. At the same time, I'd like to avoid angry emails from parents. So, I'm not setting down rules or anything. I just want to remind everyone that children do read Kimono's Townhouse. If you could keep your comments and userpics PG, I'd really appreciate it.

International Readers
I'm making out my list of projects I'd like to start in the next year. One of the things I'd like to do is make KT and its website more accessible to non-English speakers. This means I need to know more about my international audience.

If you speak English as a second language, I need your help:
Poll #1287909 International Reader Poll

Which of these is your native language?

Dutch
2(5.7%)
French
2(5.7%)
German
7(20.0%)
Italian
0(0.0%)
Japanese
0(0.0%)
Portuguese
3(8.6%)
Russian
1(2.9%)
Spanish
8(22.9%)
Other
12(34.3%)

If other, what is your native language?

Would you be interested in a translated version of KT?

Yes
11(30.6%)
No
16(44.4%)
Not sure
9(25.0%)


That's All, Folks!
And finally, since I don't like to make an all-business entry, have a photo of Kimono and Minty. Have a great day!

If you decide to translate KT into other languages I would be more than willing to help in translating it to French.

Ah, thank you! If I go ahead with a translation, I'll be taking auditions. ^_^

Auditions? How does one? Ah well I won't ask it'll make my head hurt. I'll just start studying extensively.

I'd keep it simple. I'd choose one comic to be translated, and people could send me a script with their translation. ^_^ Right now, it doesn't look like there's much demand for a French translation, but that could change!

Is that another one of those new "pony fashions" Minty's wearing?

I'm so behind on these things lately. ._.

It is, indeed! I can't resist the temptation to make fun of them sometimes. :P

Some of them do look like they've been over-starched.

Heehee that photo is great XD

I'd love to see the comic translated to Dutch. It's not my native language, but I'm trying to learn, and immersion is the best way to do that!!!

I could (and would like to) help translating into German =)

Thank you! I'll keep you in mind if I decide to offer a German translation.

Was going to leave a comment back when I voted saying that I don't quite think there'll ever be KT in Finnish anyway, but LJ froze on me and then I forgot about it. But yeah. I think I put "not sure" on the second question just cause the idea was so weird I didn't quite know what to think about it. xD

Waaaiit a minute, my memory failed me. LJ froze when I was submitting the poll, so... did it now. And as the initial shock "KT in Finnish???" had faded, I put "no" instead.

But wow... there's five Finns now? We're beating the Swedes! :D Umh... just ignore that. Hah, if you ever decide you want a Finnish translation, let me know. XD

I'm surprised at all the Finns, too! My log files don't show much traffic from Finland at all.

I think it would be really cool to have KT in Finnish! My husband's family background is mostly Finnish, so he loves things from Finland. He was also cheering that you outnumber the Swedes. ;D
