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 04/29/10

My fifth attempt is Gwynn. In this case I painted over most of the pencil lines, but I'm much more deft with a pencil than I am with a mouse or wacom pen. That made the linework on this one much more blunt and blurred. But I'm happy with the way I was able to bring a variety of colors into it instead of just logical skin-tone choices and still have it read, even if I didn't do Gwynn's beauty justice. Again, this was from a pencil sketch  somewhere on the site, and I hope someone will put the link in the reactions forums.
