My mindset is this. If that's what they want and it works for them then fine. But if it doesn't work for them then hopefully they realize why and not repeat the same mistakes. Gay stuff isn't any of this comic's major problem so they're obsessing over the wrong stuff.

Talk about not being able to take a joke.

If you hate them so much, why lurk in their server and make passive aggressive commentary on a 'nobody' image board? Why not just confront them?

>Why not just confront them?
Because you get banned or told "to fuck off". That's why nobody on the server says anything and criticism only arise on 4chan/here/DMs
Maybe that's why they ignore the praise they get, I guess?

>a joke

Nah, it's constantly like that but this time it was really blatant. I don't hate UQ, it's because I support the comic that I am in the server and follow it. It's just sad that everytime phuufy feels the need to rant (a passive aggressive one but a rant) it's because one anon from tgfb didn't like something.

Again, there are people who support the comic and who would like to see real content not
"Let me talk about how inclusive/complex my comic is bc some guy is pissed" and "here's a titless kibbles. What do you mean, people want the rest of the characters sheet? It's content!"

It's because I want to see *actual* content, like Soya/Dante/Kibs and others that I post this. Since I know they lurk

Pretty much this, their discord server is an echo chamber for both, if you even dare even say anything that is wrong with their comic or how they work you are out.

Yeah yeah, cherry-picking screens from the Discord chat to support your petty bitching because you're too chicken shit to break your anonymity because you know your homophobic ass would get called out on by the vast majority of people there.

Content is being made, it's just not what you want. Which nobody has any obligation to make unless you pay them for a commission.

The fact you got butthurt over some joke memes is really telling.

If I'm going to read a comic series and I see blatant problems with the writing or how the comic is managed then I'm going to say something about it. I have lost interest in the story a while back but I'll still give it a shot at redemption. At least it's updating again.

ID: c6f77  No.15088

Because clearly the only reason someone could be tired of the current focus of the comic or the oversaturation of a particular thing in the side works is the person hating gays, just like the only way anyone could criticize the comic is if they have a deep burning hatred for it.

Honestly I feel bad about them. If you follow them you will realize how bad their situation is. Skidd has to nearly beg for groceries and bills money all the time, as having two kids is not easy.

More so,they are never going to be Las Lindas, ElGoonish or TwoKinds and have the same kind of support those works do, and they are aware of that. They are no longer in the time of "firsts", and instead they are getting into the time of "lasts". In order for UQ to catch up with LL, TK and such, they will need many, many years of work. So, UberQuest is pretty much their last big project. They are on their mid 30's. By the time they catch up to Las Lindas or TwoKinds in number of pages and storytelling, they will be… near 50?

So I understand them wanting to make UQ work, and it is very sad they haven't found the same success as other webcomics. I can only hope that will change in the future.

ElGoonish Shive makes over $4000 a month and it is all about genderqueer comedy, and TwoKinds makes almost $9000 a month and a big part of his fanbase is based on genderswaps and more fluid sexuality. So maybe moving the focus onto Drayven and Valmont might have a greater inpact than just trying to be fantasy Las Lindas.

ID: 8afc1  No.15090

TBH They can catch up to Las Lindas by writing a better story. The bar isn't very high for that unfortunately.

ID: cf4b2  No.15092

>>15090

Is not about the quality of the story. Is about time, or rather the lack of it.

Uberquest started in February of 2014. It's been over six years and the main party isn't complete and just now the main villain was revealed. And their comic and overall artist popularity is still far below Chalo or artists of that level. At this pace they will be old folks by the time they even get to the middle part of their comic, and that's if they manage to keep it going that long.

Let's not go that far, Las Lindas is still BY FAR written worse than this.

That doesn't matter. What matter is the amount of support a work gets. UberQuest could be a Shakesperean masterpiece but still means shit when Skidd has to nearly beg for money for food and bills.

Las Lindas makes on a single page more of what Uberquest make on a month worth of content. Given their output, LL makes over 4 times the amount of money, and it is made by a single guy.

UQ is made by two people putting all their effort while also having to support their children. It is very much unsustainable, so I understand if they try to change the focus on the comic to maybe try to lure in a new demographic.

ID: c6f77  No.15101

>>15099
Technically LL's done by two guys, since SK writes it, but if you're talking in terms of who's handling most of the actual work, I guess you'd be right in saying it's just one.

And no, I seriously doubt the intention here is to shift the focus and turn it into a story about the series' villain and his love life that then makes the title make no sense.

TwoKinds - going on for 17 years or so
Las Lindas - going on for 16 years or so
ElGoonish Shive - going on 18 years

Chalo is already in his mid forties, many of these artists never saw profit or return for those webcomics for years and years and years.

TwoKinds is unique because Tom's brother is a super famous Youtuber who pimped out his work and they cross-promote one another.

ElGoonish Shive simply does the same thing Questionable Content does to fulfill queer-quotas and updating frequently for a decade or so. I am sure the creator is probably in their 30s easily by now as well.

Also amount of time =/= when something takes off in popularity. Hazbin Hotel has only been around briefly and amounted a huge fanbase. The same goes for other things that are e-popular, like Undertale.



>Las Lindas makes on a single page more of what Uberquest make on a month worth of content. Given their output, LL makes over 4 times the amount of money, and it is made by a single guy.



Las Lindas is made by a man in his 40s living with his brother,wife and children. He has alot less of the output in comparison. Chalo will never monetize his work into a format. UberQuest has been around for only 6 years but has published two books, Las Lindas has been around 10+ years LONGER and has not even published a single book, merchandise is almost non-existent and Chalo has trouble doing anything out of the shithole that is El Slavador (also countries outside of the US get heavily taxed for Patreon usage.. so whatever it seems like Chalo is making, Patreon takes about a 30 percent cut to deliver it to his currency/bank).


>That doesn't matter. What matter is the amount of support a work gets. UberQuest could be a Shakesperean masterpiece but still means shit when Skidd has to nearly beg for money for food and bills.


Skidd working hard does not have anything to do with the worth of his work. Your opinion doesn't hold any water whatsoever to his ability to make work, be successful to continue doing whatever the hell he so desires. The fact you are shitting on an artist for being responsible is catastrophically shitty.

>Uberquest started in February of 2014. It's been over six years and the main party isn't complete and just now the main villain was revealed.

Again, whatever age they are at when the story is completed is arbitrary. It's the same toxic mindset that people have when they say someone has to have their entire life planned out,married and secure in their career by 25. With the frequency of updates I very much doubt it. Similarly, Las Lindas started in 2004 and was around 290 pages by 2010… exactly 6 years. How many pages is UberQuest currently at? 287 and the year is not complete, that is with slowing down a lot for about a year and a half as well.

All you are doing is ranting and raving with no real point and little to any knowledge of the stuff you are trying to pigeonhole into being true.

When you talk about merchandise like the Kickstarter rewards Skidd and Phuufy have not yet delivered years after the fundraiser ended? Also whatever happened to that comic Skidd promised to draw if people donated $1500? Is he going to ignore now he got the money?

UQ also has to pay 30% to patreon. It makes around 900 a month. Chalo makes 900 per update. However I don't know why you get so defensive. I am simply stating facts everyone can see. UQ is not Las Lindas, or TwoKinds or ElGoonish, and while I commend your will to stick to your project it doesn't make it a success.

Honestly the way you trying to disqualify Chalo's or Tom's success by implying "But they still live with family! that makes them losers!" is beyond pathetic. If you are Phuufy (which I suspect) you should be ashamed of yourself, and how you can't defend your work without resorting to such desperate methods. And if you are just a white knight, you are doing doing them any service by posting this kind of trash.

ID: c6f77  No.15128

>>15118
Las Lindas still got a lot more done in the same amount of years/pages than UQ has. 290 pages in, Las Lindas was wrapping up the "Sarah goes extra retarded and almost kills Digit" arc, not still introducing the central characters and conflict while trying to flaunt the creators' inclusive wokeness and actively keeping a supposed main party member from even meeting the rest of the protagonists. And if that's not a good enough comparison for you, how about this: Homestuck was made almost entirely by one guy, it was known for its ridiculously complicated pretzel of a narrative and having incredible large-scale animations and a bitchin' soundtrack, and in the same number of years that UQ has existed, HOMESTUCK COMPLETED ITS ENTIRE RUN. It began on April 13, 2009 and ended on its own 7th anniversary. If Homestuck were written like UQ, I'm sure we wouldn't have been even halfway to the proper introduction of the trolls by then. Also, what the fuck are you even implying by repeatedly pointing out that Chalo and Tom live with family members? And what, do you believe TwoKinds' success is solely due to Markiplier being the creator's brother and briefly mentioning the comic a few times? Do you not realize as well that most of Mark's mentions of TwoKinds were BEFORE his sub count exploded and he became a huge household name?

>>15121
>Sidenote, Tom despite being very financially stable still lives with his mother.

Pretty asinine, isn't it? I'm just using your own tactics.
I don't even have anything against Tom or Chalo, but to compare people is really fucking stupid.

It's as pathetic as you trying to 'disqualify' any success Skidd has. You are sitting here bitching on an image board how pathetic he is for taking commissions and taking care of his own responsibilities while touting the success of others in widely different situations. Giving some shitty reasoning like creators can only be successful if they achieve X in this pointless-time-frame. Or they are this age, therefor cannot do Z.


The fact you want to rip so hard into one creator for working while defending others when the script is simply flipped shows how bias you are and your only form of 'criticism' about this is to tear down Skidd because you are mad at the direction of some webcomic. Or if he hasn't delivered a reference sheet or some really fucking stupid thing to bitch about.

It's not about the content of the media presented anymore, you are honestly just seething in your own filth about someone making free entertainment and every aspect of their life. You should be ashamed for having a double-ass standard about artists.

We could just be enjoying the art and comics, but instead you gotta try to spiel some TMZ bullshit.

You do realize you're addressing two different people like they're the same person AND getting so enraged over people criticizing this comic and its creators that you're hilariously missing the point of what's actually being said, right? But then again, I supposed doing so makes it all the easier for you to spin these stupid-ass white knight narratives and imagine anyone who opposes you as some utter lunatic "seething in their own filth".

Your false equivalence with Tom and Chalo, btw, doesn't even work, cause no one ever brought up who Skidd OR Phuufy lives with. No one said they can't do X at Y age or have to accomplish something in a certain timeframe either, and the fact that you're taking everything said here this personally shows me more and more that you must be one of them thinking no one will figure it out. I mean, we already know they both lurk here at the very least, cause how else would they know and be able to strawman and whine about us?

Oh, and for the record, this is a sample of the comment, from a THIRD person that isn't either of the people you're currently responding to, that got you so furious:

"I understand them wanting to make UQ work, and it is very sad they haven't found the same success as other webcomics. I can only hope that will change in the future."

That's the main theme of the posts by the commenter you initially let loose on. Hoping Skidd and Phuufy can find greater success. This person also didn't "shit on Skidd for being responsible", nor did they at any point "rant and rave", and it ASTOUNDS me that you managed to get that from what they were saying. And frankly, you flying into such fuming, hyperbolic rants over people being even slightly critical of this comic convinces me even further of your identity.

And now I'm sure anyday now, we'll be seeing Skidd draw another screaming Alex Jones figure that's supposed to be us going off about shit we never goddamn said.

Rule of thumb on this site, never expect the admins to EVER take more than 10 seconds to look into context, artistic habits, and clear signs of venting through more than text.

As someone who actually is in their server, I can confirm their UQ section is one part circlejerking, one part Skidd not giving two fucks most of the time, four parts Phuufy making those joke/vent pictures/comments, and .01 part patrons actually getting regular content.

We'd be lucky to get content updates and perks that were more than twice a month AND not just partially whatever they did in their request streams. You are better off waiting for them themselves to post on their public sections, like:

Sincerely, are you retarded? I've spoken on this thread about how I felt UberQuest was objetively BETTER than both Chalo's and Tom's works, and that maybe trying to aim for a different type of public by doing gay art could be a good idea.

Now I am sure you are Phuufy. Only someone as utterly stubborn as she is could react on this fashion. It is exactly like what happens at the discord. So I'll say it again. You should feel ashamed of yourself Phuufy. You have your head so deep inside your ass you can't see how much you are damaging your own work. I never thought I'd say this, but the main reason Chalo and Tom have more success? It is that they aren't as utterly unlikeable as you and Skidd are.

Tom also knows how to take the slightest bit of critique like an adult, and while Chalo doesn't actually listen to or learn from criticism, at least he's never been one to have a ridiculous kneejerk reaction and lash out at the mere sight of it.
