Chatterbox problems....

If your reading this news from the Veena webcomics page, you can look right next to this news box and you'll see a Chatterbox. Right now it doesn't look like much because it seems that Flooble, the company that manage the code, lost something to make it work...I have no idea how to fix this. I might have to install a new account, or simply to forget about the whole thing. If you think it's useful, just write me !It's kinda bad. I think we lost a lot of messages...among them all those from Michele Laframboise and her boyfriend who posted regularly, and even recently that guy who was a fan of Alphaville and saw Lemmy Caution in the look of one character in this story....

Also, you may have noticed that there is no longer a link to the Forum page. It's because I decided that it wasn't really what I needed. Initially, the forum was shared between 2 webcomics: Veena and The Eight. Since it's writer, Steve Requin, was the main moderator and not me, when he stopped updating his comic in 2005, he stopped maintaining it on a regular basis, ad ware began to post junk and I could not do much about it. These problems lead to disuse of the forum, among other things .It's too bad because it was useful to make people know about each other's webcomics...A form of cross pollination. Maybe I could try to do a similar thing with Miss Dynamite where a lot of my readers link from, or a could maybe open a Comicgenesis forum account ...

Hi Michael,
That character was from a short 4 page story that was initially independent. But then I integrated it in Veena as the intro. We see the guy at the end of this story in one panel, but I did not do more beyond that.

About Flooble, I can't find my password and it doesn't even recognise my ID. But i'm not the one who installed it, so I don't know all the details. I'll probably just create a new one. Now that at least one person has shown interrest !

Ben coudonc, c'est pas grave si t'as perdu mes commentaires! C'est pas comme si j'avais écris l'équation ultime d'unification des forces de l'univers, ou qqchose du genre... Continue le beau travail!

Well, well, it isn't as if I wrote in the comment box the Ultimate Universe Unification theroem or something like that... Keep on the good work!
