Hey guys. After thinking about it a lot and going back and forth for the past few weeks, I decided to remove comments on the site a few days ago, as you may have noticed. The comments posted on pages that weren't out yet were a big factor- they made things messy, fixing them was a mess, and the fix didn't clean up the ones that had already been made- as was the thought of similar tech problems in the future. I also didn't have time to moderate comments when conversations were getting heated, and absolutely do not want people having a bad time or getting stressed and angry under the page. I figured that was a problem that was only going to get worse as the number of people reading Paranatural grows, and that that growth would outpace my and you guys' ability to keep things lighthearted and fun.
That being said, there was so much good stuff in the comment section, and I hope that community can survive in some form. It has been such a boon for me to have all of you cheering me on, talking about my comics, and crafting enormous pun chains underneath each page. I have a hard time expressing it here because I've usually stayed up all night when I'm writing these news posts, but I really am so thankful for each and every one of you that you read and care about Paranatural. I absolutely promise you this story will be worth your time and investment, and I sincerely hope you guys will keep talking about it with your friends wherever you're most comfortable. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to do much for you guys besides updates, but hopefully in the future I'll be able to dive into some of those conversations, too! If 16 year old Zack knew the beginnings of Paranatural he had would become what it is today, and that he'd have a community as big and great as you guys talking about it and making jokes and theories and fanart, he'd probably cry a bunch of happy tears, maybe, I dunno. Teen Zack was less in touch with his feelings than I am now. I'll cry for you, Teen Zack.
If you guys want to contact me, I still have a twitter that I'm on, like, all the time, and an email address (zack at paranatural dot net). I don't have time to respond to every question or comment or request, but I do read them, so hit me up if you got a reason to. I know some of you have already emailed me about plans to set up an unofficial forum or some other form of social media for you commenters to migrate to, and once I've had time to peruse those suggestions I'll definitely link any good options for that here in a future news post. Wherever you all end up, I hope you'll keep that lighthearted, witty and fun Paranatural Comment Section Spirit going. (GET IT? SPIRIT! LIKE IN THE COMIC WHE-)
Anyways, that's enough out of me, I'm ramblin' now! I'm a rambler! Time to sleep. I hope you guys like this page and the pages to come! I'll keep practicing and working hard to make Paranatural even way better than it is now.
Thanks for reading! :^)
