DD said he'd send it to me, but I haven't received it yet.

I'll send him a gentle reminder.

There's hope!!

Thanks, Ryan!

Actually, I HAVE been working on this!  Stay tuned for an annoucement in (hopefully) a few days...

Stuck at DD's.  Has anyone heard from him since the summer?!

oh, and something I find a little strange, odd, with just a touch of ironic, is that I get like one reply when I introduced my photonovel, but when I say im cancelling it cuz i wasnt getting much replies, that was when i got all the replies swarming in. and most of the feedback was negative and critical, you know who you are...

just thought id point that out.

I never comment on people when they say they are "going to" make a photonovel.  For me, there's almost never a point.  If you want to start a PN, great.  If you want to announce it, great.  But I will save my comments for when the story actually gets made.  Even then, I sometimes don't get around to commenting as much as I'd like...

As Chewie said, many people would announce photnovels to never follow through.  I just don't see the point to talking about your unmade idea - unless, of course, you are actively soliciting suggestions or feedback about the story.  Otherwise, just go.....go make it and I'll be here when you're done.

The reason why this conversation DID develop was because Robo-Quack suddenly said he wasn't going to go ahead after the lack of feedback.  And then I felt it was a good idea to step in to offer encouragement, even if I think Robo-Quack might have been being a little overly sensitive about the whole thing.  (and, of course, other posters were a bit too, ahem, blunt in their replies, but that's another subject...)

Anyway, I've spent a lot of time lately talking about talking about photonovels.  And I'd much rather read and comment on the stories themselves.....so good luck to you all....keep up (or get going on) the great work!  I really do hope these forums become vibrant again in the new year.

Cool! 

That's something to look forward to.  I was worried that i came across as too harsh, but I was hoping to encourage you.

Good luck with the stories!!

Over the past few months, I have tried to bring attention to the lack of comments that many wonderful photonovels have received.

In this case, though, and with all due sensitivity and respect, I think you need to lighten up a bit.  I'm not try to be harsh, but all you did was post your intentions to make a photonovel with a few vague ideas.

It's not exactly something that's going to get a lot of commentary, or even something that warrants much discussion.

Don't talk about making photonovels, just go out there and make them.  THEN we can talk about getting you more feedback.

But just saying, "Yeah, I'm gonna make a photonovel in 2007" isn't really enough to fire much of a conversation.  Lots of people post these kind of declarations and many never see the light of day.

Based on the very little info you've given, sure I think your idea has promise, but you've given us very little info and it's just way, way too early to begin discussing your photonovel in any detail.....

I do agree with Chewie, make the stories first because YOU want to make them....no matter how good they are, your audience may remain small.  But if you're proud of your work and have fun doing it, no one can take that away.

Photonovels and Movies / Photonovel Awards - Countdown for Entries!!!
« on: December 21, 2006, 09:33 PM »
Attention everyone -

Please remember that the deadline for entries in the 2006 Tri-Site Photnovel Awards are due in no later than December 31st.

Only photonovels (or photonovel chapters) which were posted to in the forums in the year 2006 are eligible for competition!

For right now, you don't have to do anything like "submitting" or nominating any stories (your own or others).  We'll handle that process in January.

All you need do now is ensure your story was on one of the three major sites (Jedidefender, Rebelscum, Yakface) some time in 2006.  So you still have a few days left if you're working on new material!

Thank you and carry on!   

-The Academy of Action Figure Arts and Sciences

Yes, I am happy to help out here.  I think the awards need to be "unified" among the various websites.

I will post more details soon, as it's late where I am, but we have come up with a good list of categories, a timeframe, rules and a voting system....but new ideas and suggestions are always welcome!!

LONGHORN,

I have no excuse for not commenting before now.  I read this last week, but just haven't had the time to read it again and give you some real comments.

I know in the past i've always said I'll try to post some in-depth stuff, but seldom actually do and so I'm sorry.

As always, AWESOME work...I love it and I really WILL try to post some detailed comments soon...Thanks for your boundless creativity and hard work!

Depressis,

I didn't realize that you had finished your photonovel!  I'll definitely check out the conclusion this week-end and will post comments as soon as I can.

In Rem,

I am very saddened to hear you will not be continuing K.O.E.  Heck, you can't even go back and see the older chapters, as the links to the pics are all broken.  :(

Look, I certainly understand where you're coming from.  I agree with your sentiments - it's no fun making PN's when there are no comments.  In fact, it's downright depressing and frustrating.

I have done my best to try to champion photonovels here and on the other popular customizing forums and have even started discussion threads on that very topic - the dwindling interest in PN's from the community at large.

I have seen some great photonovels vanish quickly off the radar with only a miniscule amount of feedback.  It's saddening and it has been a contributing factor to why I haven't been working on my own material - fear that it won't find an audience.

Why go through the massive effort if there isn't an audience and if there isn't some appreciation.

That said, and I don't mean to contradict or critize you, I always thought that your PN's were pretty popular.  Your last update was many months ago and seemed to get a fair amount of chatter and commentary (not as much as I think you deserve, but certainly more than a few instances I have seen lately.)

I am puzzled why more people don't comment on these unique and lovely works of art.  It seems like something the customizing and collecting community should really get behind as a whole, not just a small fragment of people.  I dont' know why there are so many dedicated and prolific customizers and active members of the forum who never (and I mean NEVER) bother to comment in the PN section. 

I am far from perfect, but I usually try to do my best to give everyone feedback, though it isn't often as detailed as I would like.

But, speaking as a fan, I would love, love, LOVE to see another chapter of K.O.E. and do hope that you pick up the story at some point.  I would suggest posting it to as many sites as possible, though often that only helps to a small degree.  K.O.E. was one of the best stories I've ever seen and I know that it was loved by everyone who read it.

I still live in hope that more and more people (not less and less) will enjoy and participate actively in these stories.

So, let's keep the dream alive folks!!!  SUPPORT PHOTONOVELS, damnit!!!!
