Discussions regarding Pacing, Scheduling and Fanservice

The Dan just posted on Facebook that he is aware of the site roll back and is working on getting it fixed.

On Patreon Dan announced next comic would be Monday due to wrestling with site security.  Apparently the site was open to being edited by anybody.  Most of what happened was minor random stuff and someone actually stepping in to fix a couple of links.  Yay us.

One of the links was an arcid that's apparently been broken for a while anyway, I'm assuming from when Dan changed webhosts.

In case anyone missed it in the commentary, after Sister 3 ends, the main story will be taking two weeks off.

Yep, he'll still update the NP and use the time normally spent on story comics for catching up on Patreon rewards.

So, Dan's not exactly sure when, and how much, of a time skip it would be, but at least he's certain he'll do it after Elliot and gang meet up with Tara and Andrea again and address some of Justin and Sarah's stuff (dates/notdates?) so that means at least 3 weeks-a month of comic time stories before a timeskip.

And here I thought the major timeskip would happen directly after Sister 3 before Legend Of Diane disproved that.

Given that the main high-school-aged characters are in the middle of their Senior Year, a likely length for a timeskip would be to skip to May or so when Prom/Graduation are coming up and the kids are preparing for post-high-school life.

I wouldn't mind seeing an actual summer/fall story arc, since Dan skipped that the previous year, it'd make for a shorter timeskip for sure but given one of the loose ends, I don't expect Dan to hold off too long on addressing it.

Unless of course he address that before the skip, but he hasn't really indicated that possibility yet.

*Note: Spoiler for the May 8 NP ahead.*

I never thought I'd be one to complain about the fanservice in EGS, but I've gotten really tired of the "Magic Tea" effects. I mean the wavy hair and more curves thing can look good (I liked the look on Dan's avatar), but the figure alterations often go further than I like, and the tea also usually causes the drinker's clothing to shrink in ways that I feel make the clothing not look very good. I also find some of the implied mental effects creepy... And there was a period where there were so many pinups involving it that it lost all novelty.

I bring this up now because from a visual standpoint the spell Sarah used in the latest NP is virtually identical to the effects of the tea, and my first thought on seeing the third panel was "Ugh, not this again!"
