    Inserted (almost) all of the suggestions. Thanks, everyone.

    I'm going to have to go through and do more organizing at some point in the future as well.

    eek Re: The Index of the Giant's Comments

    Having just accidentally necro'd the thread about the acidborn shark (most likely via a link from this thread that I neglected to check), I just thought that I should mention that the answer to my question was no.

    So he's not allowed to tell us about the material that was cut. WotC owns it and it will likely remain lost forever :(

    I'd quote him, but it was in a PM asking me to be more careful not to necro threads (my bad!). I guess that may not qualify as a statement for this thread, but I thought that maybe other people would want to know the sad fate of that lost material.

    I believe the question OPM means is
    Are you allowed to briefly describe them and let us imagine them for ourselves? :)
    And "no" is what I would have guessed the answer would be. WotC wants them to be a complete surprise if they ever do publish them, after all.

    According to internet etiquette*, but shouldn't private messages be kept... private? No it doesn't qualify as thread material. That said, as FujinAkari showed, the same fact has been stated publically. I'm not sure it is notable enough to keep in the Index. I suspect most people don't ask about this issue - most probably don't even know about it.

    *An oxymoron, I know.

    As the story is to be released relatively soon, I'm not sure how beneficial it would be to keep that comment in the index long-term. If I'm missing the point though let me know.

    If you go to reddit.com and go to the Giant's user page (/user/RichBurlew), you'll see a lengthy comment on publishing philosophy. It also mentions SOPA. I'm not sure if it's acceptable to link it (mods could you advise?), but I'm sure one can find it without too much trouble.

    If by second reply you mean second post/first reply, he's clearly joking. Even if he was serious, it's a second-hand source, and thus a terrible source for the purpose of this thread.

    I've read it and thought about it and I'm not going to add it at the moment. Here's why: 1) The information is kinda redundant, as it is primarily addressed in the link about PDFs that we already have. If this gets brought up in discussions or whatever, we already have a link to point people to. 2) The SOPA stuff may be interesting but isn't really related to the strip. 3) Rich does use language that he admits he wouldn't allow on this forum. That comment wasn't intended for this forum, but to those on reddit. I'm like to stay on the safe side, so we probably are better off not linking to this comment.

    If you feel otherwise feel free to let me know why and I will reconsider.

    1) That is almost certainly a joke. 2) No second-hand sources please. This index is for comments directly from Rich.

    I'd say the same for Belkar, yet we've got a post up there on him. Any official alignment probably does belong in the collection.

    ...? The fact that that thread exists shows that it isn't some dead giveaway. And the OP includes links for Belkar, Durkon, Tarquin, and the Linear Guild's alignments, which the strip doesn't leave for debate either, so why not Redcloak?

    The strip makes it clear that Belkar, Thog, and Tarquin are evil, too, but people are always trying to excuse them--even to the point where the Giant mocked them in the comic itself.

    Basically, there's a certain segment of the Playground which will perversely argue the most implausible points of view until (and sometimes after) the Giant explicitly tells them that they're wrong. Nothing that isn't explicit in the comic (nor many things that are) is obvious enough that confirmation by the Giant isn't appropriate.

    Also, here's a clarification that the boots that Haley had dyed to match her new outfit are the boots of speed.
