Reagan still has ALL THE FACES and Jordan has the good sense to stay out of the way XD
Thanks everyone for chiming in on putting up the original comic last week, it sounds like that’s something folks are into, so I’m in the process of putting it together!
Next public opinion poll I need input on: THE UPDATE SCHEDULE
(Some of you may have seen on the Patreon, but still make sure you let me know your thoughts!)
Can you believe it’s been almost a whole year since leveL returned?? Time flies, but so far we haven’t had a single schedule slip!
With things going so well, I figured this is a great moment to re-assess and maybe try to ruin it all :D This new schedule has not been without its drawbacks. While consistency is way up, reader engagement is actually at an *all-time low* It seems that folks are still reading, but with a single page updates they are opting to let a bunch of pages build up and then read them all at once. Binge culture, I get it (and am guilty of it) but it’s left me begging the question: Is there a better option??
Maybe. But I want to hear what you think.
I see a few options:
1) Story Beat Update: with this model you would get a readable chunk (like a whole scene), probably between 3-10 pages, updated as I am able to draw it. Instead of a consistent weekly schedule, you’d get an Update Progress Bar with how close we are to the next beat being posted. Realistically, this would mean an update about every 2-4 weeks.
2) Whole Chapter Update: In this model, you would get an entire chapter in one single update! That’s 50-100 pages!! This means an update every few months. I’ve never tried this before, but it seems to partially be what people want: the whole chunk at once. Also, this give me a LOT more creative control to plan, rework and fine-tune the chapters to really be all they can be.
3) Page a Week Update: This just leaves everything as it is, a new page every week, no questions asked! Downsides here are a much slower release of content (you get 52 pages a year o_o) and creatively I’m going by the seat of my pants a bit (harder to rework or plan chapters as they change.) This also has the least readership interaction, leading me to wonder a bit if anyone is out there reading T_T
I’m also open to any ideas folks have outside of this! I know there are a few of you out there who consistently read every week and comment on each page, which I appreciate SO MUCH!! PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD because it is going to determine what I decide!
I’ll let you all know any decisions or changes next week, it’s Monday Updates as usual until then!
