There's no point in beating a dead horse but I really want to get this out of my head, I've been biting my tongue since the comments section was removed.

I believe this all started with people complaining about updates and slow store orders in the comments section. Driscoll took them down first and people started it up in the forum. Driscoll posted his whole "I'm not dead" thread and expected it all to go away. It didn't. He then took down the forum under the guise of it being "Buggy" it wasn't. It was sleek fast and unique. He put up a dummy forum to put the squabbling at arms length and removed the forum link from the comic (Don't ever expect the link to point here).

I complained about the comments section being removed and was ignored (Except for having my Mod privileges removed). Driscoll bashed some members over SUGGESTING the possibility of fan comics and I believe they only meant fan comics posted in the forum not on the main page. He then began lashing out at anyone that refused to be quiet about his complete disregard for his fans and sarcastically suggested we pay him $80K/year to if we wanted to critique his work, he repeated this at least twice and accused Gorgro of being immature (Pot/ Kettle).
Once Rare left I was pretty sure he would take down the forum. He did citing cost as the reason. I don't know where you can buy bandwidth by the day so he should have at the minimum left the forum up for the remainder of the month.

I think Driscoll is frustrated by writer's block and has a bit of a God complex. By removing the comments section, the forum, and slowing his updates he has dropped Daisy Owl down to the level of any other 2-bit comic on the Internet and when his readership drops to 1/3rd I predict he will take down the whole site.

If this sounds bitter, it isn't. I love Daisy Owl and Driscoll really hit on solid gold with the site layout and content. I believe he would have been among the top 100 web comics maybe in the top 20 if he kept the updates to twice per week and got more involved with the fans and the forum.

It's not too late, it could still happen. He just needs to swallow a little pride and get back to hard work.

I must admit I have very similiar thoughts to you, but I felt there was no point in beating a dead horse. Good points though.

A very seriously thread for very serious people. l:C SERIOUS.

I got flooded with emails after I left. I didn't think I'd be missed much, actually.

Thank you everyone! I was a little heartbroken leaving the previous thread, so it made me extremely mirthful to find that a new and improved forum was made. And by one of us nevertheless! /Head rubs everyone

A doodle of a raptor hugging a cat now resides in my images folder, I may post this in the creative board later today C:

As for the banner, I'll do what I can - what did you guys have in mind?

We'll all squeezing out!

I must say, it smelt real bad of fish in there. No fear though, I have made troubles far easier for others to come by hanging up an vanilla flavoured air-freshner on my way out!
