    Let's do the Achewood stuff here. After that maybe we can talk about TLJ?

    Also remember when Ronnie of Whomp! used to hang out around here.
    Some good webcomic'in for sure.

    Also also remember when Crwth had to solo a webcomic thread.

    I used to love Pictures for Sad Children until the whole thing kind of imploded. I think my top 3 of all time are Achewood, Nedroid and PBF, probably in that order.

    Edit - honorable mentions to PA, Gone with the Blastwave, Poorly Drawn Lines and K6BD.

    Edit 2 - and Oglaf.

    My favorite old forum memory is when Kara was still an admin and she created a thread asking people to not make multiple threads on the same topic.

    So I made a thread asking people to not make redundant threads.

    It was immediately locked.

    The thing about Homestuck is that even if someone tells you about it, you still probably won't believe how incredibly influential it was on Internet culture.

    The punchline is machismo for #1, Oglaf and PBF tied for 2nd. PA is easily the one i read the longest consistently though. Girl Genius as also one i stuck with for quite some time.

    It's so sad that the Achewood complete canon seems to have just vanished quietly into the ether.

    I check on its preorder status every year, and the bookselling websites all essentially give me what amounts to a more and more confused look each year in response.

    I've told people in real life about how much impact it had on me and my sense of humor, but no one's about to go to a mostly defunct website to read 1500 comics that ended 7 years ago just to get why I'm thinking about Magreaux dogs after a string of bad luck

    Sluggy's still in my bookmarks yeah. It takes a lot for a webcomic to fall off my reading regularly list once it's on there, because I'll always want to know what happens next. Being merely mediocre or boring is never enough.

    At some point the RSS feeder I was using to track webcomics updates broke.

    I immediately stopped reading any webcomics at all, even ones I really like, because turns out not having a bolded link right in front of my eyeballs means I forget the thing exists.

    related, I have at least 50 current open tabs on this browser.

    The funny thing is that I used to have big fat daily folders for all my bookmarked webcomics, so that I could just go to the Friday folder->open in all tabs and read all the webcomics that updated on Thursday with my morning coffee.

    However, those have gotten pared down a lot over the years as various comics went defunct, and all the good webcomics I follow invariably get posted in the Webcomics Thread minutes after publication. So I cleared all those out of my bookmarks as well.

    So the future Internet Anthropologist who gets my digital footprint as an undergrad assignment will conclude that I was a maniac who used seven mostly-empty folders to store multiple bookmarks of Sluggy Freelance and Sam & Fuzzy.

    Back when I was a wee one, I discovered the Parking Lot is Full, and my whole friend circle got super into it which eventually spread to the whole school and people got in trouble for looking at it on school computers (a number of strips are pretty violent or have nudity/implied sex, the kind of things teenagers love) enough that it had to be specifically warned about.

    I can't say that was the genesis for spreading It's Goofy Time to the internet at large, but I'd like to think it was.

    This one was always my favorite though.

    Swan Boy is a credible successor to Achewood but there have been very few webcomics that are actually worth looking at.

    What was that one web comic about the skeleton who was kind of depressed and he hung out with various other fantasy monsters in his monster cave? That was a good one.

    If I'd known ten years ago we'd get this bug I would have bookmarked some absolutely heinous shit for posterity

    but let's face it, most of the really good/bad stuff pre-dates the Vanilla transition.

    I vaguely remember a story about a cucumber that had me in stitches for weeks.

    It is scary that I knew exactly which post you are talking about instantly despite that being many years ago.

    Didn't the family eat it? Am I remembering that right?

    I believe the poster in question ate it in front of their family.

    Edit: Their mother, specifically.

    I have an incredible memory for facts about people. And I have been on the forums for a long time. Sometimes when one of you post I have to stop myself from commenting about something you mentioned in a different thread years ago because it just feels fucking creepy. I am about to paraphrase this post you are talking about entirely from memory.

    I was a horny young teenager and my family was gone for the day so I downloaded as much porn (she may have said smut) as my 56k modem could handle. I was just finishing up, and about to throw away the cucumber I had used when my family got back. I pretended that I had just picked the cucumber out of the fridge and my mom asked me what I was doing with it. I couldn't think of a reason to throw it away so I turned it into a salad and ate it. The worst part? My mom kept trying to steal bites off my plate.

    And here is the link to the actual comment. I think I got the gist of it right which isn't bad for something I haven't read in 14 years. https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/4867607/#Comment_4867607
