Getting a better handle on the forums: As part of the 20+ site prep, we've been doing some way overdue improvements and maintenance to the forums. Today, the dev team put in some new anti-spambot measures, added strikethrough and spoiler code to posts, and created a support thread for bug reporting. Most importantly, we removed the "when were you born" question from the forums sign-up process. Anybody who was not able to log in (because you could not prove you were at least 13) should now be able to re-send their confirmation email and activate their account at Sluggy.net. This will be the only username and login you need for the new website, and the forums will stay essentially the same as they are.

And the link to the support thread is http://www.sluggy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=95899

Comic for 06/28/10

Hey everybody! I’m really sorry about having to run filler art today. I went camping this weekend and left early thinking I’d have plenty of time and energy to finish the 50% completed strip targeted for today, but it turns out I am just energy-depleted. Still, getting out in the fresh air was good for me, right? Anywho I know many of you are impatient with this story after 4U City Blue’s intensity. I will keep that in mind as I try to move the story ahead briskly.

And yes, I doodled Elvis on thee side of the log with a fire-burned stick for no good reason and liked it so much I took a picture of it, having no idea it would end up here.
