Seriously, Jude's not making anyone read anything. If you don't like his snarkiness, don't read it. I don't see the issue. :smt017

yea, but the old way of copying and pasting bland CBR articles never got old

Okay, you all know that Jude and I have a strictly messed up hate/hate relationship and I am the biggest critic of his articles, but I'm going to say this:

If you guys don't like them, just make fun of Zechs.

For what it's worth, not all of the writers have the same tenor to their articles.

Hell, not all of the articles written by the same writer have the same tenor to them.

Oh yeah I know, but Jude and ThanosCopter have similar styles and literally seem to swamp the sections with it.

I've explained this before though - a website needs a bunch of new articles every day if it wants people to read it daily. ThanosCopter and I are producing those articles because somebody has to. If more people would write more articles, it wouldn't seem like we're swamping the site with them. A few people have been stepping it up, actually. But the solution is never to encourage writers to write less. :P

I mean I know how you feel. I wrote seven articles yesterday. Three of those were basically collections of news briefs in the various conferences. A few of them took longer than they should have, and I think the most read one got around 30 hits.

I wrote the Hypernaturals review last week, and I'd like to do more. SWRT takes up a lot of time, though.

At first i was against the new artistic direction. Everytime i opened a news article i thought to myself "what an idiot", but truth be told I read lots more news articles now than I used to.
And I enjoy them.

Perhaps I was the idiot and Jude was right.

That didn't work out too well for Syd Barrett, so it's probably not a good idea.
