Thanks for coming to my livestream!
This is a gift for anemone-gale, of her character in the Glacier uniform!
Amazingly, the guy who made the plugin responded to me like 10 minutes after I sent him the email. He told me what broke, gave me the code to fix it and now it’s back! Phew. Sorry for freaking out over there. I just had it in my head that I would never be able to contact anyone with knowledge to fix it and I would be stuck, unable to fix my site forever.
A little dramatic in retrospect, but, nonetheless, I was worried. xD
The comic is back now and I know if this happens again, I’ll be able to fix it.
I am extremely angry right now, and I’m in over my head.
It seems a recent WordPress update, which I did not implement myself, has broken the plugin I was using to upload my comics. It was an automatic update. I specifically decided to never manually update WordPress for this reason- because I knew it would likely break something. The fact that it updated itself automatically and broke my hard work is beyond frustrating.
So, yes- the comics currently do not appear on the website and to my knowledge the plugin will remain unusable until the creator of the Comic Easel plugin updates it to WordPress’s current version. Since he removed his forums due to spam bot attacks I had to contact him via Email, and I am hoping other users of the Comic Easel plugin are also bringing the issue to his attention.
I am currently working on a temporary solution but it won’t look as nice as what the site used to have. I don’t know what I am doing and this kind of coding work is beyond my expertise, so I am going to have to figure out something in the meantime.
I am sorry for the inconvenience. I am working as fast as I can to resolve the issue. If you want to read the comics you can still access them on DeviantArt.
I will post here when my temporary solution is in place. Until then, I’m very sorry about this. It is painful because this was the very thing I was afraid of happening to my site. I get it just how I want it and then it breaks and I didn’t even touch anything. Sigh.
I DID THE THING
Her birthday was probably weeks ago ( I am so sorry this is late ;A;) But despite how busy things got I still wanted to draw something out for Aeo. So I drew Kai. I hope I didn’t butcher him.
Now that’s left is the other present for someone else.
*tacklehugs Yue* Wow! I wasn’t expecting this at all! He looks amazing <3 So sweet and kindly, and his beard is amazing. You know how much I love beards! XD
And don’t worry, my birthday was actually 4 days ago. :> But even if it was like forever ago it wouldn’t matter to me because you were so sweet to do this to begin with and aaaah *hugs*
Firstly, I know this one’s slightly preachy, but I felt it needed to be said.
The examples I chose were just off the top of my head. There’s many, many more.
I know why animators do what they do. It saves time and money to create a cast of characters with the same body type. However, one must consider the cost of convenience. In the end, it comes down to a choice. We’re spending something in order to make our media: the question is, what would we rather sacrifice? Time and money, or diversity and realism? One could even argue that these sacrifices will have a greater impact on our culture than we realize.
So my friend just customized blends of tea based on my OCs! It was super sweet of her! I just bought the one she did for Kai and I’m saving up for the Friedrich and Karl blend. Check them out! And maybe you can make one of your OCs?
