I have full time job too, everyone does, and this is a recreational work sure but honestly? 4 weeks is 28 days, 5 pages... I'm just looking at this from general perspective, it's not IMPOSSIBLE to do it.
Recreational, If everything recreational and free means rules be damned, things are never going to be fun anymore. free/recreational or not, when you agreed on something you should honour/fulfill it as possible as you could, it's just a good mindset to cultivate regardless the importance as it's simply being respectful to your opponent or others recreational time.
And this is not treating people like babies, treating people like babies is if there's no jab whatsoever. I have to admit I haven't been to void for years, and I don't know what the current generation is like, but first-
getting upset because a change in title is kinda strange since it really doesn't affect everything else- but I could be wrong, maybe it does annoy you to such extent but I was wondering 'because I don't have a choice' as if the punishment will affect you in such personal level. Take a good hard look on the whole situation- is it really THAT bad? It's just a title, and I personally don't even realize there WAS a title until it was pointed out.
about bullying- really? i guess most of you guys are from united states because these are pretty much nothing compared to real life comic community around here or in europe.. friendly jabs (that doesn't sound like one often) are common, not like I'm condoning it but for me reading "I fear the backlash." is a bit strange to me
why do you fear the backlash so much, especially from a recreational site?
The 'backlash' does not affect you whatsoever (or shouldn't be), if what's real life is more important than the comics you need to make. You default, cant battle? welp, whatever happened was more important, oh well too bad come back after a while maybe they will let you battle again, I dunno.
I can say this because I defaulted too several times in the past (lol) but whatever came up back then was infinitely more important and I didn't think I needed to 'fear' the backlash. I DO feel bad because I felt as if I agreed to a certain responsibility yet unable to fulfill it. That's more like common sense/ettiquette and again, free/recreational or not, when you agreed on something you should honor/fulfill it as possible as you could, it's just a good mindset to cultivate regardless the importance.
I taught comic classes so I know young artists tend to put EVERYTHINg off until last minute then ask for extension cause pressure tend to give better work, but that's not the problem of the site or the teacher, that's your own problem.. and i think the good thing about entervoid is, if you use the platform well you can definitely improve in either a) time management or b) speed or c) both.
Using the 'recreational, supposed to be fun' excuse every time is valid, however it is also as valid for the site to exercise the rules, and also there's never anything bad in trying to honour your commitments, they can only do you good.
