Point taken. That opening wasn't very good in retrospect. Let's drop it and move on.
OK then. I think the reason homestuck is bad is because it's not a very good story. Why everyone else has to make its fatal flaw out to be an enigma, I have no idea.
To each their own. I personally like the story, but I can see why it doesn't appeal to some people.
That is what we are discussing. I think yes, Smash thinks yes, but clearly doesn't want to do it himself, and everyone else either doesn't care or hasn't read it.
Good we're on the same page here.
If the comic is mediocre, then the question therein lies, could it be better? If a webcomic can clearly be better than produced, then it is an awful webcomic in my book. The author of homestuck clearly had the ability to make a good webcomic, but didn't.
I guess we disagree on that type of judgement. Things aren't always so black and white when it comes to things like this.
No it isn't. Also, saying that homestuck fans matured into fnaf fans is like saying my home depot grew financially into a walgreens.
I think you misinterpreted my statement. I said that the immature fans either matured OR moved on to the next fad. Not that the immature fans 'matured into fnaf fans'.
Do you want it to be reviewed or not? How do you get away with yourself with saying that reviewing homestuck is a tall order, but then say, "no need to get ridiculous here," as if the reviewer was going to write a great wall of text about it? I can't see this review being any longer or any more complex than the other reviews.
I personally say that Homestuck should not be reviewed. Not because it's too big, but just because I don't think it meets the standards of a shitty comic. It was more towards the 'fans' that wanted to have like six people working on it or dedicate entire subfora to it. The 'no need to get ridiculous part' was towards the 'fans', not the review itself. Go all out if you think a review is needed. Get as ridiculous as you want with it. Or not. I'm not the one to decide.
What, why? Why is this the bar for if homestuck should be reviewed? The credentials for if homestuck should be reviewed should lie on homestuck itself, not some other webcomic. By the way, that comic is worthy of a review, but it won't get a review, because no one cares.
How many pages did you read? I'd say this comes very close to the quality of Homestuck, henceforth I'd say that if this is bad, then Homestuck could be considered bad as well. And no, Cool and New Webcomic is not worthy of a review. At least read up to the point where it is at now. If you think it's bad, then I wonder what your thoughts are on Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, since most of the humor in Cool and New Webcomic definetly falls in that category.
I have a rule when it comes to any kind of story in any kind of medium: If the first episode or act is bad, the whole thing is bad. Good stories are good from the start and get better as you go.
I consider that to be an extremely short-sighted view. Don't judge something until you've read at least a good portion of it. Homestuck's quality raises very quickly after Act 1.
My point is that these statements are condescending.
I apologize if that is how they came across. It was not intended to be that way.
This is the third post in this thread to boil down to, "Be bold, brave one, for ye will surely die."
WHAT? No. That... is not how I consider it to be at least. If it came across like that, it wasn't intentional. If you want to review Homestuck, be my guest. I just don't think it deserves a review. I love reading criticism of things I personally like. I like discussing things with people that hate that thing. Why? Because it allows me to try and understand why they hate that thing and maybe it may help me form a better opinion on said thing.
Why does this review need to reach some level of standards that provoke some form of intellectual intrigue?
I dunno. To me it doesn't have to.
