    Gah, I guess when I get the 500 error from the server I should check to see if it's actually gone through rather than using the opportunity to add bits. Now I can't delete either of them cos Rich has replied to both :P

(It's in the 5 things in update 35, but it's such a heartfelt sentiment that I don't blame Rich for using the same phrase for it twice. Not all the things you say to journalists need to be original, and most aren't.)

    Oh well, I guess that journalists do interview a lot of people and don't always publish the full interview. I hope they didn't actually promise to publish it in full, or if they did, that they'll make good on that in the future...

    CNBC did a roundup of the Top Ten Kickstarters ever, and I'm still in there (until next week, probably): Link

    Also, Bloomberg Businessweek. The parts where they quote me are just rehashes from other interviews I've done—I never talked to them—so I'm putting it under "Articles" not "Interviews."

    I'm kind of new here, having finished the archive only a week ago. But I noticed that on Saturday night's ep of Doctor Who, "The Power of Three", one of the Doctor's hearts stops. And when he gets it going again, he shouts that he's "BACK IN THE GAME!". Possible shout-out to OOTS?

    Not really a shout - out to OOTS at all. People use that when coming out of retirement, recovered from an injury, etc.

    A pair of related articles on CNN Money today:

    9 Reasons Kickstarter Projects Ship Late: I'm quoted under #7, and #9 is pretty much all about my thumb.

    Also, Why 84% of Kickstarter's top projects shipped late: While I'm not mentioned in the article, the accompanying interactive graphic rates the lateness of the 50 biggest KS moneymakers. f you click on my box, you can see some more quotes from me. I'm in the "slightly tardy" category, mostly because the reprints themselves have shipped, even if the digital goods that were promised haven't. Though I think the writer gave me too much credit on the delivery; she has me listed as fulfilling in May, when I told her we started fulfilling in May.

    It's ok that you are "slightly tardy". But if it happens again you will be retardy and we wouldn't want that would we?

    Came across an offhand reference to the Order of the Stick at gamona.de, in an article about a Kickstarter project that missed its funding goal by $28.00. My German isn't good enough to decide if the characterization of Rich Burlew as an "unbekannte Designer" (unknown designer?) is accurate, though.

    Well, they are talking in the article about designers whose Kickstarter failed so Rich is listed under unknown desinger who was successful (although they mention that it might be because he writes in the well known DnD universe).

    I wouldn't expect him in the designer categorie, though, more under author or drawer.

    I don't know if this is where I should put this but it looks like OOTS is in a contest on ComicM!x's march madness tournament. I usually am just a lurker but I thought everyone would like to go over and support it.

    Rich has asked people not to vote for OotS on comic websites.

    I remember when this came up last year I wasn't sure whether this quote should be applicable to the ComicMix tournament. (It's not really a top webcomics list... it's just a yearly contest thing.) On the other hand, when I remember how that ComicMix tournament ultimately went down, I recall having come to the conclusion that staying away had been the better advice in any case. The contest should have been a fun way to vote for your favorites and get exposed to some new comics. People took it extremely seriously, bashed the competition relentlessly, there were allegations of cheating, and one confrontation in particular got absolutely hideous and exploded way beyond the boundaries of the original boards. I wound up having a lowered opinion of several comics based on some of the shenanigans that went down during that ridiculous contest, some I hadn't read and some I had. It looks like they have more stringent policies in place this time around, but still, it hardly seems worth it.

    On their board I can read that the author of last year's winner, Gunnerkrigg Court, specifically asked not to be in the contest this year because of last year's terribleness. I wonder if Thunt from Goblins did the same, I don't think it's on the list.

    I feel like if I were that close to my funding goal, I'd pledge to my own project.

    The Goblins boards have been lost and reborn recently, but I remember Thunt expressing a desire not to be in that event before the crash.

    I have started a 'Countdown to Gen Con' page on facebook. To bridge that gap for those who can't wait.
    Every day, I plan to release a 'Countdown to Gen Con' card game card.

    So far for the intro, now the on-topic bit:

    The Order of the Stick makes the first Countdown to Gen Con card : #100 (we are counting down to 0).

    To see the card, and to like, dislike, comment, or otherwise participate, visit :

    As noted above, I made an OOTS card for my Countdown to Gen Con project on facebook.

    See for the card : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=494721367262590

    When I placed it online I had not considered that I should have asked Rich permission to use the artwork for the card. I should possibly have pulled it offline then, but I was reluctant to do so as I had only just started my project and hoped to yet obtain permission.

    Instead, I immediately sent a message to Rich (using the site's contact form) to ask for permission to keep it online, with the intent to replace the art (i.e. with a suggested allowed image, or a photograph of my OotS books) or replace the card (with another webcomic) if permission is not given.

    Obviously my project's start was rather clumsy and I sincerely apologize for using the art without obtaining permission first. I hope people can look past the slight (including that I so far kept the card online).
    The upside of this is that I have, since then, asked permission for all cases where art, photograps by others, or a personal portrait was used in my project.

    I hope a post here can increase my chances to obtain a (hopefully positive) answer, to which I will react immediately. If I don't receive a reaction before the countdown ends, I will replace the art on the card at the end of the run.

    Sincerely,

    Pierre van Rooden

    After some consideration, I have decided to not await the end of the countdown.
    It is not all that likely that I will receive permission to use the art, so it seems proper to not continue to use it. I have instead opted to include a photograph of my OotS collection, as here:

    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=519860531415340

    It's not as cool as an actual OotS image, but a bit more illustrative than my 'plan C' (which was a photograph of crayons). I also added Rich's copyright to the card.

    I hope this falls within fair use and that it satisfies any requirements for copyright.

    Apologies to everyone, especially Rich, for the earlier infraction.

    I run a web series called the Punchline, and The Order of the Stick was the subject of my most recent episode! Check it out, check out the rest of the series if you like this episode, and does somebody know of a way to send this to The Giant himself? I'd like to think he'd enjoy it.
